i can see we need to discuss the meaning of the term ‘gene pool’ again.

This one is so weird I’m not sure I quite believe it, but there’s a source for it and everything:

A woman is suing an Egyptian hotel claiming her daughter got pregnant – from using the swimming pool.

Magdalena Kwiatkowska’s 13-year-old returned to Poland from their holiday expecting a baby. Magdalena believes the teenager conceived from stray sperm after taking a dip in the hotel’s mixed pool. She is now seeking compensation from the hotel. A travel industry source said: “The mother is adamant that her daughter didn’t meet any boys while she was there.

Just a couple of quick points:

(1) Does this mean that Egypt is genetically engineering men with some kind of chlorine-proof super-sperm?

(2) Does this mean that Egyptian hotels don’t use chlorine in their pools? If so- Ewwwwww!

(3) How much stray sperm do we think is in the typical hotel pool? Do most men find swimming that exciting?

(4) What does this mean about Sex Ed in Poland?

(5) Does anyone else find it at least a little funny that someone from Europe is criticizing a hotel in Egypt because they do have a mixed gender pool?

  1. I would put my money on (4). The interesting question is if the mother or the daughter dreamt up the pool-story. I have no idea about the age of consent or laws about extramarital sex in Egypt – would the daughter have committed a crime under Egyptian law?

    We can also note that the mother must have been educated during the Communist era. Not sure how things looked like then.

    In terms of abortion policies, Poland is extremely conservative in a European context. (Cf. wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abortion_in_Poland )
