Boston College Wants to Discipline Students for Handing out Condoms

Administrators at Jesuit-run Boston College have sent out warnings of possible disciplinary action to students who have been passing out free condoms on campus.

Students have established so called “safe sites” on campus for distributing the prophylactic devices for males and females.  As readers know,  condoms and the premarital free for all is against Catholic teaching.  While the  administrators are not spying in individual dorm rooms for condoms and sex, they object to the public distribution at their institution.

One might expect that students who desired to attend a Catholic institution might have some respect for the religious sensibilities and teachings, even if they do not fully concur.  But we have learned, from Sandra (the riveted) Fluke that some students attend these institutions for the purpose of tearing them down.   The condom distribution is said to have been occurring since 2009.  Perhaps the practice has become extremely overt, or perhaps an administrator finally mustered the courage to address the issue.

A Washington DC group,  “Advocates for Youth, is donating $400 each semester for condom distribution at Boston College according to the Boston Globe.

It appears that the local ACLU is ready to jump into the fray.  Perhaps this would not be so bad.  If the Jesuits lose this argument in the legal arena, it might be a step towards smaller government.

If the ACLU can establish that penalties against  handing out condoms in public at a religious educational institution, are unconstitutional  then we can establish that laws against smoking in public are likewise unconstitutional.  Remember…. condoms don’t stop the spread of HPV (genital warts), etc.  In fact, new STI cases VASTLY outpace  than new jobs AND  new graduates in the United States, with an estimated 19.7 million new infections in 2008, says the CDC. This costs the nation $16 billion in direct health care costs per year.   On these bases ‘Nanny’ Bloomberg and Michelle Obama would have to shut down their obsessive-compulsive meddling.

Boston College need not “discipline” the students for their undiplomatic and discourteous treatment of their educational institution and its traditions.   Instead, the students  could be “praised” online with video and verse, and in letters of recommendation, for their very public “concern” for  the sexual health and availability of their fellow students.  Particular attention could be paid to the students who pass out condoms in front of the church.  That information would remain as searchable as the facebooks, resume, and other activities of the students, and help to  track them into appropriate career paths.  😉

“BUGS ‘R’ US”, says the CDC.


The Road We Know

The Road We Know.

College kids in Botswana toured the country advocating behavioral change, abstinence/exclusivity, to prevent HIV in a country which has the world’s second highest prevalence.

This “radical” strategy and mission  was born from the realization that the condoms/awareness/testing programs were not effective in this country where one fourth of the population has HIV.

Uganda and Kenya have seen positive results from encouraging abstinence.

Dr. Edward Green, of the Harvard AIDS Prevention Research Project  appears in this film….as well as here, Down on the Pharm.

Nations of Africa are making significant  cultural and behavioral changes to fight HIV.  One wonders how long (and how many more deaths)  it will take before the Western progressives  catch up with what we already knew was the best way to prevent AIDs.

And remember these TSA  people don’t change gloves.

Sanitary Towel Prompts TSA To Grope Sexual Assault Victim.

This woman failed the backscatter scan, due to her feminine hygiene product, and got the groping.

Portion of the Complainants email:

“These new scans are so horrible that if you are wearing something unusual (like a piece of cloth on your panties) then you will be subjected to a search where a woman repeatedly has to check your “groin” while another woman watches on (two in my case – they were training in a new girl – awesome).

So please, please, tell the ladies not to wear their liners at the airport (I didn’t even have an insert in). I’m a strong, confident woman; I’m an Army vet (which is why those camo liners crack me up), I work full-time and go to graduate school full-time, I have a wonderful husband, and I don’t take any nonsense from anyone. I don’t dramatize, and I don’t exaggerate. I’m trying to give you a sense of who I am so you won’t think that this is a plea for attention, or a jumping on the bandwagon about the recent TSA proposed boycott.

I just don’t want another woman to have to go through the “patting down” because she didn’t know that her glad-rag would be a matter of national security.”

The Muslims will be exempted from this, because their religion is respected by the administration.

Camille Paglia swings….. and misses

Op-Ed Contributor – No Sex Please, We’re Middle Class –

Sometimes the lib-lady gets it, but this time it’s a total miss.   Ms. Paglia tackles the flibanserin, female viagra pill issue, and concludes that middle class white values and ambition are a major factor in killing the sex drive.

Apparently she thinks that need to work for  a living, is bad for a woman’s libido, and she’s finding the main  work place with which she is familiar, to be stifling the desires of women.

Now hear this, Camille…….  the PILL (in general) stifles sex drive, and legions of couples have been leaving it behind for just  that reason.  Pharmer chalks a good deal of trouble to fooling with the chemistry, as well as culturally  marginalizing manhood.

In addition……. those dastardly incurable STDs have been ruining the romantic weekends and setting people off schedule.   Yes……. a hot and steamy  cruise is planned, and what happens???  A condylomatous bloom or herpes outbreak puts a big un-kink in the vacation!

The weekenders only appear spontaneous  in the movies, for your troops, Ms. Paglia.  And any actor will tell you,  that’s the farthest thing from reality.

Pssssst…… Doesn’t it all make you want to move Down on the Pharm?   😉
