    Wouldn't Believe It Unless I Had Seen The Evidence

    When I first sarted seeing these stories regarding YMCA in the USA I thought they were at the very least exaggerated. After researching it I now know it was true. It appears not to be confined to just the YMCA but many schools also had this requirement. The logical reason for...
