Your Tax Dollars at (Not So Hard) Work

In 2005 the Bush Administration spent $168 million dollars on "abstinence education" to teach young adults enlightening stuff like this:
While a man needs little or no preparation for sex, a woman often needs hours of emotional and mental preparation.

5 Major Needs of Women: Affection, Conversation, Honesty and Openness, Financial Support, Family Commitment

5 Major Needs of Men: Sexual Fulfillment, Recreational Companionship, Physical Attractiveness, Admiration, Domestic Support
Um, what year did they write this? 1955? It's so wrong and so dated I don't even know where to start. Apparently it's very expensive to own and maintain breasts and a vagina, therefore women need "financial support" and men do not. I also didn't know that men have no need for conversation, affection, honesty or openness-- just sex, hiking and breakfast in bed, and please, do it all without talking.

Then again, this is far more twisted:
It is hard for many of us to understand terrorism and why someone would have such hatred in their heart that they would deliberately kill innocent people. Today I would like to introduce you to another form of terrorism that gets little, if any, attention—the terrorism that our youth face each and every day.

At one time the definition of an adult was someone who had left childhood behind and taken on the responsibilities of life. In contrast, today “adult” means being able to view and participate in any and all types of perverse activities that depraved minds can imagine. We actively seek to eliminate terrorism from our land; please help us actively seek to eliminate this corruptive terrorism that is stealing our children’s future.
Sex = terrorism?!? What "perverse" and "depraved" activities do you think they're referring to? (nudge, nudge, wink, wink)
