This is why I refuse to chaperone school dances

We have come a long way from the foxtrot and the twist. Nowadays, our nation's students are performing simulated sex acts on the dance floor. The name assigned to this form of so-called dancing is "Freaking". Schools are not only cracking down on freaking on the dance floor, some have banned dances altogether. Not surprisingly, some parents are upset that dances have been banned, because they don't see what the big deal is with this Freaking phenomenon.

Ahem, I can answer that one. As a recently minted father of a daughter myself, I nodded in agreement with this quote from the second article I linked:

"I'm still waiting for the first father to tell me he doesn't mind his daughter dancing that way," [Principal Charles] Salter said.

Good Day to You, Sir

Sorry for the non-sequitor:

I won't be able to organize a response- but hopefully, someone will show up. Just thought you'd want to know. Feel free to circulate widely.

Announcement from the usual suspects:

Huge Peace Demo with CINDY SHEEHAN!
START DATE: Friday October 27
TIME: 4:00 PM - 6:00 PM
Location Details:
All four corners of the intersection of 16th & Broadway, IN SACRAMENTO
Event Type: Protest
Contact Name Stephen & Virginia Pearcy
Email Address stephen.pearcy [at]
Phone Number (510) 559-3118
Hello everyone,

Please join Cindy Sheehan, and many other peace activists, at 16th & Broadway, in Sacramento, FRIDAY, October 27th, from 4pm to 6pm, to protest George Bush's catastrophe in Iraq and the most corrupt American presidency in history!

A heartfelt patriot, Cindy continues to work tirelessly to prevent other parents, widows, orphans, relatives of soldiers and innocent Iraqi civilians from becoming the next victims of an unjustly prosecuted, obscene, genocidal, illegal war, fought in violation of international law, Geneva Convention accords and our currently imperiled Constitution.

As elections approach, and during a month on par to be the deadliest ever for Americans in Iraq, it's particularly important now to keep the spotlight on the Republican-orchestrated disaster that has already claimed the lives of over 655,000 Iraqi civilians and 2,800 American soldiers.

There will also be a major demonstration (and counter demonstration) in San Francisco the next day, UN PLaza 11:30 -1:30

I think that kind of dancing is totally disgusting. It's true, it's like they're having naughty sex on the dancefloor, not even tasteful sex, but the naughty kind.

you almost want to tell them "get a room already".

As I tell my high school students:

Boys, if you wouldn't dance with your mothers that way, and girls, if you wouldn't dance with your fathers that way, it's because you know there's something sexual about it. And school is not the place to be doing something sexual.
