Did anyone hear about the "no public cursing" law?


Yes, I believe that was enacted in New Jersey or some other New England state. And the courts let it slide. For now.

Tennessee had a similar uproar a while back, maybe two years, when some schools started banning physical contact (hugs and the like). Nothing new; schools have been doing this for a while now. My bro's middle school had a similar statute until the parents shot it dead. Really, where are these schools getting this ridiculousness from?


I graduated HS in 2008 and the only thing people cared about then was if we skipped class or had sex on school grounds. If it didn't have anything to do with school, they didn't care.

Now it seems there getting involved with everything.

What happened to the law that would fine parents if their kid(s) skipped school?


My high school right now hardly cares about anything outside of drugs or sexual activity on school grounds. Teachers and advisors will even tell you up-front: "If it didn't happen in school, don't tell me about it." They don't want to be responsible for all your teenage follies.

In my experience, it's mostly middle schools that try to regulate the student's lives so much. Probably because they realize middle school is a time when kids are changing most, and the time when they are most likely to start "bad behaviors". If they can nip it in the bud early, then the kids won't do those things when older (or so they think). By the time they reach high school, though, it's like all hope is lost; they're too far gone. There's no way to control those crazy high school teens.

This is obviously a very flawed way of thinking and could potentially make life a living hell for everyone involved - middle schoolers build resentment towards adults and lash out in the form of those "bad behaviors"; parents feel constantly stressed about their kids future because they don't trust them; and high schoolers get away with way too much crap, end up paying heavily for it later, and feel like the school system doesn't care about them when they try to get help and are ignored. It's just all-around awful.

And I have neve heard of that law before. Sounds like it wouldn't work though, if you consider some poorer school counties and the usually "less academically focused" kids that live there. Not quite fair to the parents.

Middle school is where guys realize girls don't have "cooties". lol
High school is where we uh... you know..

I honestly don't know what to say about the schools because I've been out for 4 years and I'm sure alot has changed since then. So anything I say about schooling is moot.

But I do know my 16 yr old sister is becoming...experimental... shall we say? I can tell because of the questions she asks me.

She always words it "Hypothetically" or "One of my friends..." lol

Oh dear, the questions XD I am glad I have a little bro who probably will never ask me anything like that. Primarily because I don't do "bad child" things >_> Middle school kids are getting pretty bad these days though. My bro's school has more drug inspections than my high school (then again, high schoolers seem to be smart enough not to bring that to school in the first place). And three kids my bro knows got arrested on school grounds, all for different things, in the past year alone. Like, Jesus Christ, children -_- It's a sad, sad world.

^^ This. Our Founding Fathers would be disgusted at what this country has become!

Why must the South be so socially backward?

Thanks for Syndicaidramon's comment several pages ago.

Back in 1860, the USA fought a civil war to keep the South in the USA. Now we're stuck with those backwoods fools forever.

Tennessee and Texas should just leave the US and become individual countries on their own. That way, the US may finally start seeing some progress...


It didn't say anything about Texas in this article.
Besides that I agree with the Tennessee part, also this law is just *shakes head* sad, i mean, they should approach it differently because i bet it won't decrease their rate at all.

Friggin media titling. I seriously doubt this would make hand holding illegal as that would simply be unconstitutional and retarded. I mean honestly if you ban hand holding all together the mother/father holding their son/daughter's hand while going through a mall or other center of activity would be considered molestation. Simply ludicrous. This is more about adhering to christian morals of abstinence than anything else. (Religious morals? I'm unsure as to how many religions preach sexual abstinence.) Encouraging sexual abstinence is fine, there's no issue against it. However you can't force it on everyone and in the heat of the moment who knows what control will be lost. Contraception and the consequences of multiple partners needs to be taught in school. Sex Ed is vital and necessary. I agree that bringing in a dildo to display how to give a safe blow job is a bit overboard, if it even happened. Inappropriate on the other hand I'm somewhat unsure about, (Honestly, have you seen a boy's bathroom in a high school? Penises drawn everywhere.)but what the hell do I know about such things. I'm a little unclear as to what this whole gateway sexual activity actually is. Does it mean activities that lead to sexual intercourse? If so then why the hell not just say that, or is it too offensive to the delicate republicans?

..... Are you kidding me? Why would anyone want there to be a law forbidding people from holding hands? That's stupid. You won't die from holding someone's hand.

This is why we can't have nice things.

This really is stupid this when you know they have nothing better to do and is that bored holding hands is not bad thing at all and is a nice thing to do with your BF/GF romanic thing like when taking a walk in the park, on a beach or when together as far as I know it never led to sex it more kissing/making out that leads to sex not holding hands
