Teaching abstinence is never enough

and even more disturbingly they also believe that drinking 'mountain dew' (whatever that is) and smoking marijuana will prevent pregnancy!!!

no offence to any Florida teens out there, i am sure that not ALL of you believe it but this does seem to be a bizarre rumour that is going around!!!

it seems to be a result of Florida's "abstinence only" sex-education curriculum. what, they actually think that if they say "don't have sex" teenagers will not have sex?! have they MET any teenagers before?!

because of these outrageous beliefs the state is now looking into providing more sex education.

anyway, take a look at the very short article on the link above and leave your opinions below

    Unbelievable! Well, almost. For those who think teaching real sex education will cause teenagers to have sex - have you ever been a teenager? Did an adult telling you not to do something prevent you from doing it? Information is a wonderful thing - let's share it!

    And I thought we had it bad over here, where kids get drunk every weekend because they think it's how you're supposed to have fun! Kids drinking bleach to avoid getting HIV?!
    AAARRRGGGHHH!!!
    Kids in Florida, here's a new concept for you: Read a book!!! Preferably one that tells how one can contract HIV!!! And then, if the hormones are still wrecking havoc, buy a condom!!! Hell, buy a 12 pack!!! Use'em all at once if there's any doubt!!
    Gods!!! How stupid can people be?!!
    I guess it's true what they say: "The individual is intelligent; but put 3 or more individuals together, and the average IQ within the group plummets!"

    First, if you drink city water odds are great it has chlorine bleach in it so drinking it does not mean death except in a lethal quanity.A mouthful may not kill but if they manage to keep it down it will definetly make them sick enough to not try it again.

    Second, sex ed in school isn't a solution. Sex ed at home is. Parents do your job! Abstinence sex ed does teach birth control methods.

    Adults, let alone teens, have made up this stupid things forever. The issue seems to be more of a group using these stupid ideas to push for an agenda that will not solve the problem.

    Who's dumber, the teen drinking a capfull of bleach or the adult that doesn't question why another adult wants to teach the teens about sex?

    You said abstinence sex ed does teach birth control methods. Then, it does teach them about sex. Why, then, the last sentence?

    Abstinence is teaching about sex. Duh! Wouldn't it be difficult to say not to do something without saying what the something is? Learning the different, though prone to failure other birth control methods will not stop or even hinder these other silly things people come up with.

    What's your issue with the last sentence? You wouldn't question why somebody, especialy a politician, would want to push through a sex ed agenda that doesn't involve the parents?

    The only problem I have is that, obviously, many parents are NOT teaching their children anything. That's why the schools do teach them. It's expensive to add a new class about anything. They are trying to stop teens from getting pregnant. Hopefully the parents will teach them abstinance. I taught my children what my values were, but sometimes you have to be practical. Especially with children who don't have parents to teach them anything.

    Personally I think they should give parents the option to let their children participate or not. I just don't think children can ever learn too much if they are taught it in a respectful way. Ignorance is not bliss!

    Ignorance may not always be bliss but knowledge doesn't always solve a problem as well.
    Parents can stop a teen from getting pregnant not a school.Abstinence IS the only 100% way to prevent pregnancy.

    No one can stop a teen from getting pregnant. You can give them a better chance, but unless you fix them or stay with them 24/7 you can't stop it. You can only teach them what is right and wrong and try to instill it in them early. The later you talk to them, the better chance they will get pregnant.

    Thanks for the post. I remember when women thought eating gun powder would cause a miscarriage or drinking Iodine. But that was before Roe v. Wade. Teaching sex education isn't going to hurt anyone. When kids get info from other kids or misinformed adults the results are just what you see here. Take Care :)

    Obviously FLORida is where they make FLUORide from toxic wastes. Communities there are paid by the manufacturers to over FLUORidate the states water supply. The kids cant help to be retarded there, since FLUORide acts as a chemical lobotomy.

    I think that drinking bleach will prevent you from catching HIV. If you drink enough of it, HIV will not be your immediate problem because you'll be DEAD!!!!!!!!!!!
