Hand-Holding Is Too Sexy
For teens, hand-holding is just one step away from having sex. That is, according to Tennessee's abstinence-based sexual education program, which includes warnings about "gateway sexual activity," a.k.a. hand-holding. The legislation also prohibits teachers from demonstrating any "gateway sexual activity." So, to recap: hand-holding can lead to sex, students must be warned that hand-holding can lead to sex, but teachers cannot demonstrate how hand-holding. Got that?
