In a sex ed class designed to “destigmatize” condoms, a 15-year-old girl said she was urged to taste flavored condoms.
According to a report in the Santa Fe New Mexican (use this to register), parent Lisa Gallegos said that when her 15-year-old daughter balked at putting a condom in her mouth, instructor Tony Escudero told her, “Come on, sweetie, have a little fun.”
Also, Gallegos quotes her daughter as saying when a male student expressed his disgust with homosexual activity, Escudero said, “Never say never, because you never know. Someday you might like it that way.”
The mom says she favors sex education, but this is inappropriate. The New Mexico Education Department sided with the teacher, saying he merely told students they could taste the condoms if they wanted to and urged them to tolerate gays.
