“Women shouldn't be surprised, if they dress like a piece of meat, if men want to put them on the barbeque.”

That charming and sensitive rhetorical flourish comes to us via Christian author and abstinence educator Justin Lookadoo, whose recent motivational speech at a Florida high school didn’t go over so well with the students in attendance.

Tuesday, the controversy over Monday's assembly at Merritt Island High School made its way all the way to school district offices. Meanwhile, students were split over the message some said insulted female students with statements like "you can kick my woman...but you can't kick my dog."

…Lookadoo talked to juniors and seniors about the perils of boy-girl relationships and sex. The offended students said girls were portrayed as being to blame for boys' adolescent attractions.
Gee, where have I heard that before? Wait…wait…it’s coming to me. Oh, yes. Now I remember. Turns out there’s a solution for preventing women from driving men to distraction with their feminine wiles. It’s called a burka. They’re fun! We should start requiring women to wear them here, to solve the problem of men being reduced to slobbering, groping, out-of-control nutwits by the siren song of the female form.

Pam, who gets the hat tip, says:

Justin is the author of Extreme Encounters ("Devotionals Dare You To Be Extreme"), and this excerpt will give you more of the "flava" that he brings to his school talks on abstinence.

The night has been perfect. Your guy has been a dream. You are sitting in his car. He kisses you good night, then all of a sudden…he's all over you.

You are trying to block all the shots. But, is it OK?

You think that maybe you are being too old-fashioned. No way. This guy just doesn't get it. He is not respecting you, and he for-real isn't following the Bible.

So guys and girls, remember: Don't touch it if it ain't yours, and keep your hands to yourself.

Concerning the things of which you wrote to me: it is good for a man not to touch a woman.
1 Corinthians 7:1
Extreme Encounters? Extremely disturbing, anyway. I love that in this guy’s mind, every average date ends up in a confrontation wherein the woman has to decide whether to put up a fight against being date-raped, or just go along for the ride.

I’m curious to know if Lookadoo supports the right to “be old-fashioned” for all women, or if those who “dress like a piece of meat” deserve their place on the barbeque.

Anyone else concerned that this shite is being presented at a public high school? Looks like we're really getting our money's worth for our tax dollars that are being funneled to faith-based initiatives.
