Method #1: Don't have sex. It's called Abstinence and it
works leaves you horny as a motherfucker... except that, when used correctly, abstinence leads to there being neither fucking nor a mother.
Method #2 For Not Getting Pregnant: Use birth control.
I mention method number two because, if you advocate abstinence-only education, you just might become a grandparent before your 45th birthday. Take, for example, the Republican nominee for Vice President of the United States, Sarah Palin, whose teen daughter is five months pregnant.
Is it appropriate to discss the children of political figures? Let's ask Sarah Palin's running mate, John McCain:
"Why is Chelsea Clinton so ugly? Because Janet Reno is her father".
- John McCain, 1998
As I was saying...
Sarah Palin's family problems are none of our business. What absolutely IS our business, as voters, is her position on the issues. Sex education is an issue. Sarah Palin advocates abstinence-only education.
A recent government study came to the conclusion that abstinence-only education is as effective as not telling kids anything about sex at all. [SOURCE]
"Researchers found none of the abstinence-only programmes had an impact on the age at which individuals lost their virginity, whether they had unprotected sex, the number of sexual partners, the rates of sexually transmitted diseases or the number of pregnancies." - BBC News
A recent look at Sarah Palin's family leads to the same conclusion. If she couldn't even make abstinence-only education effective for her own immediate family, why would she - or anyone else - expect it be any more effective for an entire nation?
Abstaining from sex prevents pregnancies the same way abstaining from driving prevents car accidents. It works until you take the hot rod out for a drive. Then what?
Buckle up. This election is going to be a
humpy bumpy ride.

Ha! Soooo true. Case in point: Utah. I can count on all of my working fingers and toes the number of pregnant girls I saw walking down the hallways of the high school. Teaching abstinence doesn't work, yet it's the main focus of sex-ed there. I think the only mention I remember of condoms or birth control was in reference to their ineffectiveness, thus discouraging kids from using them.::::: | September 16, 2008 3:47 PM
