So apparently in Crystal Spring's (Illinois) Prairie Ridge High School, part of their sex education course consists of what is referred to as "The Vagina Dance" where all students have to get up and do a Hokey Pokey like dance while talking about the inner workings of the female form (via Big Journalism and The Gormogons).
Aside from the fact that this seems to be on the face of it, discriminatory, because we're not hearing about the corresponding "Penis Dance", it seems that the local paper is complicit with the school district in denigrating and selectively editing information provided by one concerned parent. To put it in the immortal terms of Kim Du Toit, it is literally the Pussification of the American Male (fortunately saved for posterity at the link given).
Seriously, this is what the K-12 educational system has come to. And the Elitist Media wonders why the billions of dollars thrown at education in the last 30 years has equaled a decline in student knowledge. As the parent in question rightly points out, Grey's Anatomy and models and the like work for medical students, why must high school students to a Performance Art dance in celebration of the vagina (and I'm still wondering where the Penis Dance is).
Sorry y'all, couldn't find a video of the dance but you wouldn't believe what google comes up with in a keyword search....
