Headline gave the wrong impression


It is always okay to say no.

Last week the CVN ran an article headlined “Sex Education: You can’t always just say no.” The article accurately described the approval process for the sex education curriculum and the materials that will be used in the high school here at Haines Borough School District, but the headline seemed to imply something very different to those who read it. Several individuals, including students, felt the headline was saying that people don’t have a right to control their own bodies by saying no to sexual encounters. The headline was convoluted and unclear and I am hopeful that they are more carefully edited in the future. Everyone has a right to say no, whenever and to whomever they want. You can always just say no.
