Abstinence? Don't even touch!

Creative Minority Report has a good piece on the advice given to students at schools in Long Island, New York. Apparently the danger of swine flu has prompted officials to advise youngsters not to touch each other. Strange, given the politically correct skepticism about abstinence programmes! (See: I Thought Abstinence Was Unrealistic.)

CMR has better advice, surely:
As studies (not shown here or even available anywhere) have clearly indicated, children are going to touch each other no matter what those in authority tell them, so it's best to simply protect the children so that they touch each other in the safest manner possible.

Perhaps even full body condoms are the way to go.
So we agree? Let's keep our kids safe.
