Choice words

February 5th, 2014

Several parents appeared before the state Board of Education on Tuesday to complain about the Pono Choices sex education curriculum for middle-school students.

Many parents were upset by some of the graphic content in the curriculum. But Marissa Capelouto, a conservative Republican who is running for Congress, stood out.

Capelouto, who has two children in Kapolei Middle School and Kapolei High School, opened with: "I'm really mad. I'm pissed off."

It went downhill from that point.

I think you guys should all quit. You guys don't deserve our tax money.

I want to make sure that money that went through you guys to do this Pono Choices ...be done. Get rid of it. You don't need money for this. This is a madness. You guys took our rights out of our hands. You guys endanger our children. You guys completely crossed the line. You need to be sued.

OK? I don't know what statute you guys really violated in our Hawaii statutes. I want to choke people, I am telling you right now.

I'm from the Philippines -- born and raised there -- we never had things like this. We don't even know what the heck condom is.

OK? My daughter didn't have her period til 12. OK? I didn't have my period til 13. You guys show this to 11.

Somebody need to get skinned ...I'm really out ...Oh, my God. God ...don't give me anything to my Second Amendment. I don't want to lose that.

I am so serious. That's how bad it is.

I bet you you got your children probably in private school.

God. OK? You guys got to get rid of it. It needs to be burned!

I swear. I swear. I spoke to my daughter. My daughter is like ...Oh, my God. I don't know how to undo it.

Might as well you bring two gays in the school and have them go ahead and do it right there. Go do the penetration in the classroom.

That's why you guys need to leave. You need to quit.

Mrs. (School Superintendent Kathryn) Matayoshi, I seen you at (unintelligible). I want to choke you there. I'm sorry.

Because my daughter went through it. It hurts. `Cause I don't do that to my kids.

I don't even kiss my husband. You can ask my husband last time I kissed him on his lips.

You guys really crossed the line.

    I think you'll agree that Capelouto's testimony was not representative of the dozens of others who took the time to be there. The testimony I heard was respectful, informed, well presented and sincere.

  2. Nala007:

    Reading this was a great way to start my day. If this woman actually does run for congress as a Republican, I can't wait to watch those debates. Should make for good entertainment. I have sympathy for her husband who she won't kiss. Let me guess, I bet she is opposed to marriage equality for same-sex couples too. Wow, she must be getting pointers from Bob McDermott and Richard Fale.

  3. Flying:

    And this is supposed to be the GOP's choice for Congress in CD2? Geez what a nut job! No wonder the HI GOP is in such dissaray with candidates like this.

  4. WestSideTory:

    You may disagree with the language, you may think she is hateful and disrespectful, or a nut job, but its a breath a fresh air to see someone express her personal feelings with unabashed passion. At least she is willing to speak out, take a stand, and not just sit back and let the government take away our liberty. BOE/DOE has no business instituting this curriculum without the consent of people, let alone trying to normalize unhealthy sexual behavior. To bad there isn't more parents as outraged as she is!!!

  5. Gtos:

    I guess a breath of fresh air means that it's okay to use threats of physical violence (skinning, choking, implying use of guns).

    Sorry for the husband.

  6. Especially Incognito:

    Third world thinking.
    No loyalty to America but for American money.
    There are numbers that many Filipinos are illegal
    to be in Hawaii. Sponsored workers with no jobs.

  7. ohiaforest3400:

    Who is the unkissed husband, Tom Berg?

  8. Guy:

    How is it cool to talk about choking someone? Talk about offensive!

  9. Especially Incognito:

    It hurt her Third world thinking.
