Ugh, stop twitching
unforeseen consequences
horror Posted 2009-02-18 17:41:42 by Jim Crawford
Recently, my sister told me the story of how, in 4th grade, she was dissatisfied with her sex education class because they weren't allowed to tell her anything about boys anatomy. So she sneaked into to a bookstore and picked up one of those this-is-your-body books for young boys. A balding, middle-aged guy in a wife-beater noticed what she was reading and started following her around, even after she left the mall. She was a bright kid, she knew what he was after, but she wasn't sure how to bring the subject up, or whether doing so would scare him and make him violent. Eventually she found mom and the guy wandered off.

So, there's my new argument for better sex-ed.

He wasn't just following me around; he was actually trying to talk to me and walk me home. I was trying to figure out if there was a way I could get out of essentially leading this guy to where I lived, and couldn't think of any. I was really happy when I happened to see mom across the street.

In addition to better sex ed (please!) can we have a more useful "How to get the creepy stranger to leave you alone" education? "Don't talk to strangers" is about as useful as "Just say no".

"How to get the creepy stranger to leave you alone" education? ""

hmm... Is there really such a thing? I think even grown up women struggle with that. I can't imagine how you could teach that skill to a child. err.. aside from passing out tasers and pepper spray :)
