Frederica Wilson is Proud of Banning "Simulated Sexual Intercourse" in Marching Bands
The St. Pete Times' (Pulitzer-prize winning) Politifact decided to find out what exactly she means when she say's she banned dirty dancing.
Back in the mid-'90s Wilson served on the Miami-Dade School Board and says she nearly passed out when she saw a marching band member preform what she calls simulated sex on a majorette during a performance.
Politifact dug up this old quote: "I've seen horrendous behavior. I saw a band member bend over and a female majorette come from behind and simulate actual intercourse. I almost passed out, but people in the stands were applauding."
So she led the board to pass a measure banning "actual or simulated sexual intercourse (normal or deviate), masturbation, excretory functions and actual lewd exhibition of genitalia."
I'm sure the move angered plenty a pimply-faced marching band member, considering simulated sexual intercourse is probably the most play they get during high school.
Politifact concludes that dirty dancing, of course, is not banned in Miami-Dade County completely, just in schools.
