[Mississippi] law prohibits any kind of demonstration of condom use during sex-education classes. In many districts, the classes teach abstinence only.

An English teacher who oversaw a student presentation in which the proper use of a condom was demonstrated with the aid of a cucumber has been given leave to return to her classes.
STARKVILLE, Miss. (AP) — A Starkville High School teacher is returning to the classroom after being suspended over a student’s vegetable-based presentation for how to properly put on a condom.
The Starkville-Oktibbeha Consolidated School District released a statement Friday saying the teacher, Sheree Ferguson, can return to work.
Given the sexual realities that anyone who has passed through the teen years experienced, this incident has a feel of utter ludicrousness. And yet there are people who do not see it as ludicrous at all ... why else would Mississippi have a law that targets the topic?

Bring on the storks!
