Yeah, But Keeping Your Hands In Your Pockets All The Time Presents Its Own Set Of Problems

We're coming to you today from the Neologism Department here in the marbled halls of IM Central. The ND is part of the Corporation for the Coinage of Novel Verbiage, a wholly owned subsidy of Euphemisms Are Less Scary, Inc.

Today's example: Gateway Sexual Activity.
Tennessee senators approved an update to the state's abstinence-based sex education law that includes warnings against "gateway sexual activity." In a new family life instructions bill, holding hands and kissing could be considered gateways to sex.
Um...we're not sexologists or anything (although  we'd like to play one on TV) but it seems to us being born with a gender is a gateway sexual activity. Just a thought.

In related news, Tennessee's teen birth rate is eighth highest in the nation. We suggest gloves, they're like condoms for the hands.
