Abstinence-Only Education

It. Doesn’t. Work.

Some things, we should never, ever do. Heroin, for example, is a thing you can live your whole life without sampling. Same with hate crimes. Just never do hate crimes. It’s easy. Abstain from racially motivated violence.

Sex, however, is a thing that most people would agree is okay to do sometimes. And, if you do it right, you can reduce the risks. However, if no one ever teaches you how to do it correctly, you’re going to do it anyway, but you’ll do it wrong, and everything will be a horrible disaster, and you’ll have a baby.

Let’s put it this way. You probably shouldn’t eat pizza all day long with anyone who will eat pizza with you. It’s not productive, and it’s not good for your body. But, if you pick your spots and take the proper precautions, pizza is something you can really enjoy, alone or with others.

You need guidance, someone to say: “Don’t eat that hot, bubbling pizza or it will give you blisters on your mouth.” On the other hand, it’s not helpful to say: “Pizza is a sin! Wait until marriage to have pizza!” Because then you’ll end up not knowing what kind of pizza you like, and you’re married to someone who doesn’t even know how to make pizza, and you start craving the neighbor’s pizza, and we all know where that leads.

I don’t remember what my point was, but I really want some pizza right now.
