The Washington chapter of NARAL has a message for you:
The American Princess responds:
Yes, I understand that eventually “I’m waiting” beccomes “What the hell for?” if you aren’t in the minority of people who enter into marriage upon your high school graduation, and in reality, telling children to “just say no” without a little explanation, and a little “working knowledge,” in a world that innundates them with sex from the moment that they wake up in the morning is a pretty archaic way of viewing society. But this constant attempt to divorce sex from any kind of meaning is growing ever more crude.
After all, that’s what it is. Once you separate sex from love, or even feeling substituting the idea that sex is power, you’ve finally achieved equality with men. Never mind that its with the chauvanists.
Ah, well, what did abstinence ever do anyway? The only way to not have a baby is, of course, have an abortion.
My question is this: If we aren’t teaching kids abstinence, what are we teaching them?
Of course, “Screw Abstinence” parties would be a great place for to pick up chicks.
