on Sex Ed
I went through sex ed in the California public school system. I thought it was valuable. We were instructed how to put condoms on, and i used them later on. This argument reminds me of the needle exchange debates in Berkeley of the 1990's. Statistics and science cand come out and conservatives will disrupt the progress. I think teachers Shouldn't promote ANYTHING including abstinence. I think they should scientifically list all options and risks, including STD's, contraceptives, and pregnancy. stressing moral issues involved with sex can lead to effect on a child's future sexuality. In my experience as a sexually active adult (and father), i have come across a variety of situations. I was instructed to get tested every 6 months, and i have, at the free clinic, where they do the needle exchange.
On a seperate note: I have several friends in their early twenties that have contracted HPV and later cervical cancer. People are dying. People are having sex. We are even at WAR!!! lets be honest with each other!
