    Re: DA: sex ed could get teachers arrested

    All schools should teach kids about sex just like they teach traffic safety and first aid. Sex ed should not be compulsory like all other subjects as the children whose parents will not sign the permission slip are likely to be the ones who knows the least about sex in the first place.

    Sex ed should of course teach the biology about it all, the various means of contraception, and how to use them, tell about different ways of sexual practices and orientations, the emotions connected with sex and answer any sex-related questions the students might have. Handing out condoms is also a good idea since many teenagers are too embarrassed to buy them themselves.

    A good way to do sex ed is to have guest teachers do it. When I was in high school we had two sex ed volunteers come and talk to us and it was really great. It was a man and a woman who were both in their 20's and it was much better than it would be to have our teachers who were at the age of our parents do it. They also taught us how to use a condom in the most obvious way possible; they gave each of us a condom and then passed a pink dildo around class where we had to put our condom on it. It was great fun and nobody became sexual predators for that cause.

    What is so wrong about teenagers having sex? I don't get it. Sex is one of the few things that is both fun, healthy, and free. As long as everyone involved consents and respect each other's boundaries what harm can be done then? Inducing guilt in young people for having sex is far more harmful in my opinion.

    When I have children one day I'll hope that they'll have lots of good sex once they feel ready for it.
    The poor complain; they always do
    But thatís just idle chatter
    Our system brings reward to all
    At least all those who matter.

    Personally I'm willing to oppose all forms of sex-ed until gun safety is included.

    If safety is our concern, then there's no reason to leave guns out.

    That wasn't a "shot". I just repeated your own argument back to you. Just in less flowery terms.

    You're getting soft on me. It's no fun if you don't fight back.

    I think it's time for that DA to be removed from office. His license needs to be cancelled. He's clearly a bible-thumping quack crackpot.

    In bold. No it isn't. Please provide evidence of this if you believe so... and remember, you used the statement "is perfectly acceptable in EVERY case" an absolute.

    Besides, the reason former studies showed no positive effect of abstinence-only programs is because those studies did not account for functional/dysfunctional homes. A later study (which I don't have handy but would be happy to dig up if you would like) showed that sex-ed programs made no significant change, positively or negatively, on children from either home style. Children from functional homes were less likely to have sex as early whether they had sex-ed or not. Children from dysfunctional homes were more likely to have sex early (and abuse drugs, and commit crime, and run away, and commit suicide, etc) whether they had sex-ed or not.

    Hen you say "teens are going to do it anyway", you are dismissing the cause of the behavior, you are ignoring the problem.

    Accepting the premise "teens are going to do it anyway" is giving up on ever doing anything about improving family cohesion and viability.

    Teens are far less likely to "do it anyway" if those teens come from stable homes. Teens are much more likely to "do it anyway" if they come from dysfunctional homes.

    Public sex-ed does not address the problem driving teen sex, STDs and teen pregnancy.
    You are presenting an argument that I never made. Quote where I said that "teens are going to do it anyway" and used this to support my position. Also, you are presenting YOUR opinion of how public schools teach sex ed. From what I have seen, that perception is completely false.

    And yes, I'd like to see the study. I seem to remember it, too, and though the differences were smaller, I seem to remember there STILL being differences between the two.

    Yet you've offered no evidence that the context is problematic.

    That sounds like "pork" to me. These two issues are not related, and you seem to be adding it because it is a "pet" issue of yours. Do you object to driver's ed.? That is a safety issue, too.

    Not everyone encounters guns in their lives. A far greater majority encounter sex. I have no problem with your proposal; in fact I agree with it. But connecting it to sex ed, is just ridiculous.
