TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- Upset by videos used during a sexuality class at the University of Kansas, the state Senate passed a bill that would withhold $3 million in funding to the school. The bill requires public universities to ban the purchase of such 'obscene' material or lose funding for the offending department. The measure, an amendment to the state budget proposal, targets a popular class taught for 20 years by award-winning professor Dennis Dailey. 

Republican Sen. Susan Wagle said she offered the amendment after learning about the class from a student. She told colleagues that during the class Dailey displayed pictures of the genitalia of girls at ages 5 and 10, told female students to explore their own genitals as homework, and implied that a woman leaving for the restroom was going to masturbate. 'I think what is going on in this undergraduate class is obscene, and I want to make this type of activity not funded by the taxpayer,' Wagle said...

Should the state of Kansas have taken away the funding they gave this college?

what? i want to take that class! hah...j/k taking away that funding doesn't make sense though. they can still have the class if they want. seems it would've made more sense to pass some rule about not showing underage genitalia in classrooms.

Do you KNOW how the guy taught the class though? It was degrading!! I live in Kansas and I completely agree with it. I mean it may not be up to the state, but it needed to be done. The class is good, yes...but not taught like that. It's beyond the mature-factor: that's more of a cinema for adult viewing lesson.
