You've Come a Long Way, Baby (Not)

This sign - in a Houston middle school that has since taken it down - is akin to the advice that someone at Garfield paid comedian Steve Harvey to tell to Garfield's female population. I heard it didn't go over well at Garfield either.

Just as controversial is who's being quoted: Sidney Biddle Barrows. She's the so-called "Mayflower Madam," a New York City escort service owner busted in the 1980s. She reportedly said the words to her escorts.

The worst I observed was at Ballard High School assembly when the speaker (former football player/inspirational speaker) basically told the girls to wait save themselves for marriage. -TeacherMom
