Poll: Your local school announces a new course: Gun Safety And Sex Ed. How do you feel?
  • 8.8% - I’m against it, because of the guns. 123
  • 5.8% - I’m against it, because of the sex ed. 81
  • 2.8% - I’m against it, because of everything involved. 39
  • 60.3% - I’m for it. Why not? 840
  • 14% - I don’t have kids, so I don’t feel I have a vote. 195
  • 8.3% - I’m against it, because I’m against schools in general. 116
1394 votes

Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

Safety and more safety. Sign them up.

Although we've covered one set of these at home already.

I am not in favor of sex-ed that results in shotgun weddings.

Combining the two sounds bad.... Individually I'm indifferent.

As long as my tax dollars aren't paying for the nonsense...On second thought, I don't like the sound of this so called class. I'm voting with my (son's) feet and taking my son out of school this instant.

I see no issue with this. Kids should know both and sex ed, made to take seriously in a classroom environment may be good for the kiddos. Too many teen pregnancies, too many accidental kid shootings (face it 1 either way is too many) education takes away the "I didn't know excuse".

Let's see the quality impulse buys!

Just need to add in some rock 'n roll, and I think we'd have a great song title here!

Why would you put a condom on your gun?

That seems like a very odd combo class. Assuming it's two separate classes, the kids already have sex-ed, and I'm not against gun safety. But obviously, gun safety courses are not going to stop killing spree's.

To keep the barrel cleared.

It's not like one day they would talk about sex ed and the next they talk about guns. They could split the class in half for the school year, one half sex ed and the other gun safety.

Thank you. Gun Safety, Defensive Driving, and Reproductive Education. I'm a fan of teaching kids not to shoot themselves, get knocked up, or drive on sidewalks.

You can put one over the barrel of your rifle while wading through water to help keep the inside dry.

Here's the only thing I need to tell my kid:

"In both cases, the tip is the most sensitive part."

I have a lot less problem with kids discussing (with adult guidance) ways to be safe than I have with Woot! constantly selling guns.

Well said. Trying to bury our heads in the sand and pretend the issues don't exist is a disservice to our children.

As a kid we had gun safety but no sex ed. As an adult, I find I use the latter far more than the former.
