Lots of absolutes in this thread.

100% of teens do not have sex. Many of them do, but not all.

The ones who don't have sex aren't the ones we are talking about.

This is about the teens who are going to be having sex.

Either people can convince them to not have sex, or people can come to terms with the fact that teens are going to do what they want, and so when they have sex, make sure it is as safe as possible.

Why does Chicago have such a high teen pregnancy rate? They teach comprehensive sex ed so that should solve all the problems, right?

You're right, let's treat teens like infants and just blindly hope they won't act on their natural urges. Great plan.


They'll have urges off course, but for some teens, an urge to please their parents is just as strong. If you have expectations for them, they may surprise you.

Seems a little 'chicken or the egg' to me, but this isn't really a hot button topic on my radar.

BTW, your sig picture is perfect for this discussion.

no wait.




okay...that made my sides hurt.

quote:

Teach them about consequences such as teen pregnancy, child support, stds, heartbreak.


now this bit is good advice and important... and all parents should do this. Sadly, too few do.

But sex is for everyone not just "married" people.

If they put as much effort into teaching abstinence combined with setting high expectations, as to behavior, especially with girls, as they do in anti-smoking, there would be a lot fewer out of wedlock or unwanted pregnancies.

Im going to call bull shite on this.

Not so fast my friends

Now I know in that fantasy world you live in, abstinence education actually does something...but mostly it just teaches kids that sex is something "we don't talk about" so they act on their urges.

with the bs in our culture erasing any stigma of unplanned parenthood and teenage pregnancy we have destroyed the only thing that could be somewhat effective.

This -

We need to stop celebrating unwed motherhood. An unwed mother should not receive one dime of extra money just because she dropped a kid.

High school girls should not be allowed to continue in the same school. They should all be sent to a special school for unwed teenagers. There they can associate with each other, learn about the responsibilities of caring for and raising an infant, and how to get along without government help. Means taking in laundry or working nights at a restaurant washing dishes, or something else to earn the baby formula for the child and potted meat for the mother.

Out of sight - no more school trips, dances, proms, extra curricular activities - you go home to take care of your kid.

Not a very good idea if you ask me. It would encourage abortions. You also aren't holding the baby daddy responsible for knocking her up and then sticking the taxpayers with the bill for his roll in the hay.

Do you steal balls from the neighbors kids when they land in your yard too?

So in your world. We should punish kids who frick up and get pregnant.

Teen pregnancy rates are down.. But anyway, turning a fricking blind eye to a problem and hoping ignorant fear trumps biological urges in a downright terrible idea.

re: Abstinence only for teens


This is 2013 and, apparently, some people still think teenagers will refrain from fricking if effective "abstinence education" is in place.

WHAT PLANET DO SOME OF YOU LIVE ON? Crap, I'm older than most of you and there's absolutely nothing any teacher could have told us that would have dissuaded us from having sex. What would have been effective in preventing teen pregnancy would have been realistic sex education and, frankly, LESS fear and shame.
