Good Monday morning!
Dennis Malloy and Judi Franco, the 101.5 hosts greatest recognized for being suspended after calling then-Lawyer Normal Gurbir Grewal “Turban Man,” have another opinions they’d prefer to share.
Both believe that academics should not be criminally charged for having intercourse with college students if the youngsters are above the age of consent. On this case, they’re referring to a 24-year-old Hamilton instructor who allegedly had sex with a 17-year-old student. (h/t to New Jersey Monitor’s Sophie Nieto-Munoz for drawing attention to this).
“In lots of instances the place this occurs with a male instructor, the feminine scholar isn’t some shy wilting flower that was taken benefit of,” Malloy wrote. “….Let’s not be naïve and fake that the sexual energy of a younger lady, or a girl of any age for that matter, is an immensely highly effective power on this planet.”
The ironic factor is that these radio “personalities,” and NJ 101.5 extra broadly, have sought to whip up panic and paranoia about New Jersey’s intercourse ed curriculum — usually utilizing false or misleadingly incomplete information — partially as a result of college students will learn to determine physique elements that play a job in human sexuality, or as a result of they’ll study sexual orientation and gender id.
Understand that one of many arguments intercourse ed advocates make to help the instructing of frank classes is that it’ll assist children be taught what is acceptable grownup habits and what’s not.
I’d be curious to see a ballot query about which might alarm New Jersey dad and mom extra: Youngsters studying about gender id, or repealing the legislation that makes it a criminal offense for academics to have intercourse with college students.
