I'm young, a fairly recent graduate of high school, and it really bothers me that teachers are required to push this abstinence-only curriculum. I completely respect anyone's decision about virginity, as long as it's well-researched and appropriate to an individual's situation. I don't like the idea that kids are scared away from sex, or misinformed about it. I see it in action, too. I actually had to inform my sister (4 years my senior and very intelligent) that using two condoms is, in fact, less safe than using one. That scares me, because it means this kind of misinformation has been taught for years. Isn't it time we took the stigma out of sex, at least long enough to teach kids how to make informed decisions? I mean, I learned more from Cosmo than I did from trained professionals.
