    Re: Condoms for free at 22 city schools

    As for 10 year olds having sex, I cannot and do not even want to think about it. I'm sure most people here know/knew where their young children were and who they were with. My major pet peeve with parents now is that I see far too many, far too many who do not understand that parenting is sacrifice. It is rewarding. I think the greatest word I've ever heard or will ever hear is "dad". But, as I am sure you know, parenting is hard work. It is about giving up many of the things you enjoyed prior to having kids. It's about being the example for your children to follow. It is sacrifice, even the little things.

    I don't understand how a 10 year old has the freedom to have sex. Sadly, society seems not to want to deal with it if it costs money.

    Indeed he has. That was one of the reasons I did not vote for him.

    I know that I still feel shocked and disgusted when I hear about stuff like that, and things like this end up happening to children who are not wanted by their mothers. So there is just another point made why the condom program would be a benefit.

    Philly schools are overwhelmingly Black. Better condoms then more unwanted babies and disease. Anyway you look
    at it, a bio/cultural disaster.

    I hear you, but I am also afraid the genie is out of the bottle for the time being. The pendulum will swing back the other way, but probably not in our lifetimes.



    I could not agree more. With puberty now starting at 10 or so for some kids, young and stupid has an entirely different meaning. I don't think I even knew about sex when I was 10. No one wants to raise a baby who is raising a baby. That is a reality parents of children face these days. That's one reason I think the free condoms are a good idea.



    Well, it is fun. But I've always been more partial to practicing than actually reproducing.

    Times are different and my kids are grown. All in all I preferred being young in the world I grew up in. It probably isn't as much fun being a kid these days.

    Well, I can't say I disagree with what you put forward here, other than teens today are I think a little more driven, and believe it or not smarter than we were, so, as parents we can only go so far. As a father of a daughter, I guess I just don't want to picture her in that way, nor her friends for that matter. But, we were successful I think, she's in collage now for a nursing degree, and no kids.

    I guess it boils down to someone else making things like that available to the kids, is in some way, just not right. But I do know intellectually that this is a problem among teens, and we must do something to head it off.
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    What does that have to do with what I said? I say we give out free condoms, and make access to contraception and education not an issue. Then, we can say, "okay, now its on you" and start making cuts to welfare.

    There is a disconnect there that you are not seeing. You are laboring under the delusion that welfare mothers spend their welfare money on their children. They do not. Cuts to welfare will accomplish nothing but to create more neglected kids which we well eventually have to pick up the cost for anyway. There are all kinds of opportunities in school. Just because the opportunity is there doesn't keep the government from spending my money on a bunch of worthless people as it is now. The only 'cuts' that will be accomplished is that the baby mamma will only have 2 kids for us to support instead of 12. But it's worth it in the long run.
    Redneck, hillbilly, fundie, Bible thumper, cracker, split tails, geezer, loon, xenophobe, islamaphobe, and homophobe are not words of tolerance.

    You clearly are not understanding what I am saying. I'm saying, welfare queen should not get her welfare; but in order to morally justify it we should provide sexual education and free condoms.
