A Catholic girls’ school in Croydon is telling students a bunch of bullshit about what secks will do to them.
Students at a Catholic girls’ school have been warned that sex outside marriage can “destroy their soul” and “make their bodies sick”.
The “warnings” were handed out to 17 and 18-year-olds during a Sixth Form talk at Coloma Convent Girls’ School, in Shirley, Croydon.
Leaflets handed out during a personal, social and health education session (PSHE) warned that condoms and the morning-after pill put people “at risk” and make them “isolated”.
Well it’s like this. Some very puritanical Catholics hate secks and hate girls who do secks and especially hate girls who do secks with pills or condoms. So girls who do secks will be “isolated” from Catholics like that. They will be “at risk” of not having Catholic friends of that type. Oh the horror.
The leaflet, called The Single Catholic’s Guide, was handed out by international Catholic movement Pure In Heart UK who carried out the talk at the school.
Well they don’t mean In Heart, do they. They mean In Cunt. Girls who do secks have dirty filthy impure cunts, which are the impurest things in the universe. An oily swamp full of decomposing frogs and fish is like attar of roses in comparison.
Former pupils at the school have been up in arms as a result of the literature, condemning the school’s “backwards” sex education practices.
The leaflet states: “In fact, many who slept around or had sex outside of marriage have discovered that it was destroying their soul and making their bodies sick. They learnt the hard way that society’s got it wrong.”
Emily Boris, 21, went to Coloma for seven years from 2005 and now studies physics at university.
She can remember being “scared” at school during talks about chastity and sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and was told if someone wanted to, they could “regain” their virginity.
It’s nice to see that Emily Boris has escaped. On the other hand, why should she have had a nasty time at school being pressured to hate sex and everything related to it?
The school’s head teacher, Maureen Martin, said she would have the group back and – although she did not agree with some of the more extreme messages – refused to condemn the literature.
She said: “We believe that God loves us all and is merciful. We are on a journey of ups and downs and if we make mistakes along the way then God does not punish us, he forgives us. And we forgive each other.
“We need to meet the needs of the pupils and we have many talks in the Sixth Form that discuss various issues and ideas.”
Thaaaaaaaat makes absolutely no sense. What she is quoted as saying bears no relation to the complaints about the group. What the group says is not about forgiving mistakes – if anything it says god does punish filthy sluts who have sex. And what does meeting the needs of the pupils have to do with letting outside groups telling them inaccurate horror stories about sex?
Martin said the Year 13 girls who took part in the session were old enough to make up their own minds as to the contents of the literature.
So it’s ok to invite outsiders in to tell them a bunch of crap, because they’re old enough to see that it’s crap? But why not just skip the outsiders telling them crap altogether? Faster and cheaper and less gruesome, I would have thought.
