I have ranted many times about the importance (in my view) of sexual education.
I came across this tidbit at Feministing and wow. I can see where they are trying to go with this but, I don't believe in scare tactics. Mainly because they don't work.
At least in my experience they don't work beyond a certain threshold of burning curiosity. Really people, I'm glad you're all for reducing the rates of teenage pregnancy but showing weirdly altered photos of pregnant boys or having a website with the added bonus of the sound of a baby crying is not going to do it.
I don't know how many people I've argued with about this topic since I was a teenager.
With holding information does not help create the foundation for a healthy decisive young adult.
Granted I am actually mindful of cultural values etc however, I very strongly believe that no matter what your morals are, giving your children a strong knowledge base with which to make important decisions is of utmost importance.
Parents do yourselves and your children a favor. Give them power. Give them facts and the power to make a good decision for their own life. That is the greatest gift you can give them.
Can I just say I find it horribly sad that I totally forgot I had a Cafe Press store? I have all these tshirt designs in my harddrive at home and had no clue what I was going to do with them. Go figure.
Very strange. It sleeted/snowed here today and it was kinda pretty for a hot second then I remember oh HAY I do not want to stand around waiting for the bus in the cold mmkay.
So I'm still at work waiting for my lovely coworker to arrive so I can haul it home to do some belly dancing and probably some serious exfoliating.
Tomorrow more about milk of magnesia, a review of Cherry Culture and probably some talk about Mac Cosmetics MSF's.
