Florida School Bans “Sex Clubs”

badapple1.jpg
The Okeechobee County School Board got creative when it banned a gay straight alliance:

The Okeechobee County School Board has banned so-called “sex-based” clubs, a move the ACLU has called another attack on members of the Gay-Straight Alliance of Okeechobee High School.

In a unanimous vote Tuesday, school board members adopted the policy that bans any club that is “sex-based or based upon any sexual grouping, orientation or activity of any kind.”

District officials have said the new policy, which takes effect immediately, aims to ban clubs that challenge the district’s abstinence-only education.

So, the school not only gets to ban the group, but successfully boiled sexual identity down to sex acts. A for effort, F for equality.

      school board members adopted the policy that bans any club that is “sex-based or based upon any sexual grouping, orientation or activity of any kind.”

      This must mean no more sex-based clubs like “boy’s basketball” or “girl’s volleyball” etc etc. But, of course in reality it’s not going to be that way because we’re dealing with a bunch of ignorant, disingenuous, assholes.

      They’re not going to be able to make this stick. Federal law prohibits restricting groups unless you ban them all. ACLU will come in, win, and the idiots will go back to still being idiots.

      This policy only affects FUTURE clubs — the Okeechobee GSA is still allowed to meet on campus pending the hearing on March 18 for the lawsuit.

      since the boys scouts is only available to heterosexuals, wouldnt that be based upon a “sexual grouping.” Ban those merit-badge earning mofos!
