"Conservatives say teaching sex education in the public schools will promote promiscuity. With our education system? If we promote promiscuity the same way we promote math or science, they've got nothing to worry about."
The System Today
So, whose fault is it? Does the fault lie with the collective religious organizations that shame all aspects of sexuality? What about with an education system that glosses over things, presents fallacies as fact, and tries to scare the youth away from having sex? Or perhaps parents that won't accept their responsibility for their own children; the same parents that wouldn't have this problem had their own parents not skipped at-home sex ed?
Why?!?! This makes no sense, unless you take religion into consideration. The values that are passed down from parent to child are all too often religious values, passed down from generation to generation. This, in turn, causes the same views on sexuality to be perpetuated endlessly. Don't hurt others, don't steal, etc.; all things we understand as human beings, but at what point can we realize that sex is going to happen regardless of how adamantly the preacher/rabbi/cleric/whatever rants and raves about abstinence being the only way?
It's outdated, foolish and a risk to the health of the youth of the world in the 21st century to turn a blind eye to sexuality!
A question as you leave:
Would you rather find that your young one is being perfectly safe, but having sex younger than you expected or find out they have been having sex when they come to you pregnant or infected with a disease and scared?
