It’s Condom-Bonanza in the Provincetown, Massachusetts, school district:
“Earlier this month, the school committee overseeing Provincetown’s schools passed a resolution that will provide all students from elementary to high school with free, unlimited condoms. All you gotta do is step up and request one.
Let’s say you’re the parent of a 6-year-old and you don’t like the idea.
Tough! says the district.
You don’t get a say. School officials don’t even have to tell you if your….
…child requests a condom. Further, if you object, they can run roughshod over you. They can distribute at will.
Sounds like a condom-bonanza!
Not quite, sneered the committee chairman.
“It’s about availability; we’re not handing ‘em out like M&M’s,” Peter Grosso told the Boston Globe.
That’s true. You have to go talk to the school nurse and she can load the student up with a wallet-ful if necessary.
If the person requesting them is particularly young? Say, a kindergartner wanted a few dozen? These are professionals we’re talking about, so don’t worry.
The superintendent said that “if an especially young child requests a condom, the nurse will ask the student’s motive and act accordingly.”
Because it would be unthinkable to Just Say No.
