The Rockville Pregnancy Center in Maryland has been kicked out of Montgomery County schools after a parent complained that the group was using a “gum game” to illustrate its talks on sexually transmitted diseases and abstinence. While the Washington Post article doesn’t actually say, I believe this game involves passing a piece of gum around to show, in a minor way, what it’s like to pass STDs.
Maybe the parent should be more concerned about his or her kids sharing their genitals with other kids. I think the “sticker game” is also good. That’s where you pass a sticker around and everyone sticks it to his or her shirt until it doesn’t stick anymore. There are all sorts of useful illustrations in that.
