    Oh, I don't doubt it gets a mention. I just think it gets lost somewhere along the lines. It just seems to me that telling kids they're going to have sex anyway just teaches them what we expect of them.

    That is why I documented the fact that this is not true.

    We COULD get back into this discussion, but probably wouldn't be a good idea since you were so soundly defeated last time you tried.

    I had it in high school. It consisted of just about one sentence about abstinence and several days worth of posters, a couple of how to videos, and time spent putting condoms on bannanas. In the end it was all pretty much wasted effort. I found a prostitute in tiajuana. After several rounds of antibiotics everything turned out just fine........I started dating only girls who used the pill.

    Because our unemployment would have to be atleast at that(which isn't the case) for your theory to make sense. Because if we didn't have enough workers to supply business with all the jobs our economy provided, and then had to rely on Mexican workers to fill those jobs, then maybe your theory would make sense. But that is not the case, and the cause of illegal immigration is not abortion. It is because our country is better then Mexico.

    It is usually a good idea to NOT inaccurately describe something. You saw Redress's post. THAT is how abstinence is presented in comprehensive sex ed... and that's how I taught it. Prominently. I understand that you would PREFER it to be different, because that would help your position, but your perception is not accurate in this matter.

    Kids don't need encouragement to have sex, their bodies are giving them enough encouragement already. Teaching them about sex comprehensively will only protect them. What is wrong with giving kids knowledge?

    a) You're own anecdotal experience.
    b) Sounds like, initially, you didn't learn anything. I'd imagine that your course didn't state that it was OK to have sex with a prostitute without wearing a condom.
    c) After that you DID practice safe sex. Probably a combination of your experience and what you THEN remembered from school.
