High School Sex Ed Teacher Scolded For Using The Word Vagina

Interesting. I was always under the impression that the word ‘vagina’ was the scientific term for what we were all given at birth. Various other slang words have been created throughout the years, some offensive, some ridiculous, but ‘vagina’ is still okay, right?

Apparently not. An eighteen-year veteran biology teacher named Tim McDaniel was scolded for using the word ‘vagina’ during a sex ed lesson with high school sophomores in Dietrchich, Idaho.

According to a letter from an Idaho Department of Education official, "The allegations also include that he showed a video clip in class depicting an infection of genital herpes, taught different forms of birth control, and told inappropriate jokes in class." While the school's superintendent told the local paper that it's "highly unlikely it would end with [McDaniel’s] dismissal," he also added that the teacher could very well end up receiving a letter of reprimand from the school board. Seriously Idaho? You mothers need to find a hobby.
