    sorry if I impinged on your gaygenda. homo/hetero, I don't think any teens should be "encouraged" to have sex. they are going to do that as often as possible anyway.

    monogamous butt sex is the safest route to go. monogamous = lower chance of STD, butt-sex = no chance of unwanted pregnancy.

    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    I really can't think of anyone, myself included, who would say, gee, I sure wish I would have had sex with more boys while I was in high school.
    We should teach kids that it is normal to have sexual desires, but it's not necessary to act on them.
    wow....you certainly read a lot into her post. erroneously, i might add.

    That's not a school's job though, that's a parent's job. Besides, whose morals should the school be teaching?

    The school's only duty when it comes to sex ed should to present factual information about sex, including the risks involved and the options available to mitigate those risks. Period.
    If you build a man a fire, he'll be warm for a day.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

    Easy to laff at what you msunderstand in totality, eh?

    You don't know squat about abstinence only sex ed. because NYC doesn't have it...so why ask at all if you don't actually want to know?

    A fool and his intentional ignorance is soon revealed.

    Regards from Rosie
    I was born and raised in a "backwater burg," so I don't think that's the issue. My point is that "we have lots of teen pregnancies" does not prove that "we have lots of teen pregnancies because we allow first cousin marriage." Correlation =/= causation.
    People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

    So should that be encouraged as well?
    I wouldn't encourage teens to have sex at all. "Committed relationships" are ones that you count on lasting for a lifetime. Obviously teenagers' relationships rarely do.

    Good for you. I always love hearing high school sweetheart stories that lasted a lifetime. My parents got married when mom was 18 and dad was 22. I can't even imagine getting married that young.
