Pot shot

I’m not sure if this shows why abstinence-only education is stupid, or if it shows that abstinence truly is the best policy… It sure does show the hypocrisy our society has when it comes to sex, though.

    A more accurate cartoon demonstrating the ‘comprehensive’ sex ed agenda would be the professor standing up and saying, “I know its dangerous to drive when you are 13 years old, but you’re going to do it anyway, so at least wear your seat belt.”

    The problem with your analogy being that nature does not hand a 13 year old a set of car keys when he hits puberty, but nature does equip him with the ability and the desire to be sexually active.

    Sexual desire does not mean you should have sex. Nature doesn’t hand you a condom or a pill either. So much for ‘nature.’

    And ‘naturally’ sex produces babies. If your reasoning is correct, why should we prevent 13 year olds from ‘naturally’ making babies when they are having sex?

    Sex is natural, but people still need to use common sense and not just live by their bodily urges. Sex makes babies and you shouldn’t have sex until you are ready to deal with a baby. Period. 13 year olds are not ready to deal with babies.

    Hal, you’re missing the point here. Telling a 13 year old “don’t drive” works (most of the time) because the 13 year old is not equipped to drive (he has no car). Telling a 13 year old “don’t have sex” is far less effective, as has been proven more times than you or I can count throughout history. This is because a 13 year old has everything he or she needs in order to have sex.

    You want to let your 13 year old have babies because it’s natural, that’s your business, but I think educating them on some unnatural birth and disease control methods is better than not, and more likely to be adhered to than an education based solely on (equally unnatural) abstinence.
