You are so right.
Teenagers are teenagers. I was one....once..
I wish that my little girl was not going to be one soon!!!
I try to put her on the correct path but a teenager has their own mind.
I talk to her about sex and the ramifications of an early age. I just pray that she listens to me.
Does teaching one’s child about guns mean they are going to wind up a psycho killer?
Why doesn’t the same line of thinking apply to sex ed?
Did they teach you in biology about boys and girls having different equipment?
Interestingly last night I watched a show on the History channel that examined lust. They showed brain images of someone (in this case a woman) who was watching erotic images. It turns out that as the “turn on” region of the brain “turns on”, another area of the brain that has to do with restraint loses power. It was the biggest no duh show segment that I’ve seen for quite some time!
Their point would be that the others who give in will end up not using protection.
Just because the equipment (in this case, a firearm) changes, does that somehow change basic safety rules?
Still, putting a thin rubber mitton on the barrel of a current or advanced firearm probably wouldn't work. At the same time people don't come with a "safety" either.
Statistically, surveys of 1000 people have a margin of error in the low single digits. If done properly, they are a pretty accurate statistical tool.
If you took the pledge, I’d figure that you’d probably be in a monagomous relationship which right there would cut down on some STD factors.
Homosexuals are unlikely to use birth control as well and I doubt that abstinence or chastity pledges are even considered at the homosexual only public school that was established in Chicago recently.
If it is all about education, and we are told that homosexuals are smarter than the rest of the population, why is the message that engaging in random sexual encounters with strangers in washrooms without a rubber is hazardous? The message is ignored.
Taking the pledge is also a public declaration. There may be some students who take this same attitude to sex (wait) but are unwilling to make themselves a target of ridicule at the school. A shy nerd doesn’t need more things to be hassled over.
It is when they video it with their phones.
SEICUS encourages youth to be sexually active.
The sex positive agend as espoused by Reich, Kinsey, and feminists seeks to end all moral judgements over all sexual activity regardless of sex, age, relation, marital status, number, or species of partner(s). They see sex as a birthright to be enjoyed at every age and believe abstinence to be an unhealthy supression of sexual desires.
The same attitude you will hear the Left spout on attempts to counsel (or “convert”) homosexuals.
What does that have to do with “History”? Sounds like it belongs on Discovery. But then don’t the science channels spend a lot of time of UFOs and paranormal activity?
Planned Parenthood isn’t advocating “safety”. Misfires lead to “mistakes” which is the bread and butter of their yearly revenue.
Here’s the reason why this study is flawed, the “rest of the story”:

Like a Virgin: The Press’ Take [Mistake] On Teenage Sex
Wall Street Journal ^ | JANUARY 6, 2009 | WILLIAM MCGURN

“Premarital Abstinence Pledges Ineffective, Study Finds,” heralds the Washington Post. “Virginity Pledges Fail to Trump Teen Lust in Look at Older Data,” reports Bloomberg. And on it goes.
In other words, teens will be teens, and moms or dads who believe that concepts such as restraint or morality have any application today are living in a dream world. Typical was the lead for the CBS News story: “Teenagers who take virginity pledges are no less sexually active than other teens, according to a new study.”
Here’s the rub: It just isn’t true.
In fact, the only way the study’s author, Janet Elise Rosenbaum of Johns Hopkins University, could reach such results was by comparing teens who take a virginity pledge with a very small subset of other teens...
