New Hampshire: Safe-Sex Kits Still Raising Hackles
January 11, 2011
Fallout continues from AIDS Services for the Monadnock Region's recent distribution of safe-sex kits that included condoms, fruit-flavored lubricant, and candy at area high schools. ASMR Director Susan MacNeil said Thursday the organization will seek administrator approval before bringing the kits to high schools, and it will talk with school officials about letting parents opt their children out of ASMR presentations.
Barlow wrote in an e-mail, "If [ASMR] had had the grace to display the AIDS quilt and shut up, it would have remained a 'learning moment,' where students could take away their own message, rather than converting it into a 'teaching moment,' where the lesson [safe sex] is beaten into them through the kits."
