Anonymous asked: I think abstinence education should be taught as an option, just like safe and unsafe sex are taught as options. If children aren't least informed about what abstinence is you are ripping away their chance at a life without STDs, teenage pregnancy, or emotional damage. And that makes you a heartless, moral deprived cockroach. Have fun with your impure life
Here is abstinence education…
"Hey kids, don’t have sex!"
That’s it. That’s all it is.
And yet, people have made entire curricula out of abstinence only education. The only way that is possible is if they load it up with religion. Not everyone wants that for their kids. And if they do, why can’t that be taught at their place of worship? Why must it be forced into public schools?
The idea of abstinence was born in ancient religious texts. If you’ll indulge me I’d like to share an example.
"If a man seduces a virgin who is not betrothed and lies with her, he shall give the bride-price for her and make her his wife"
If you are unfamiliar, the “bride-price” is payment to the girl’s family. If you have sex with a girl, you have to buy her and marry her.
This is from where your righteousness stems. This is the genesis of abstinence. This is the pure life you are trying to emulate.
To me, teaching people how to have safe consensual sex seems the ethical, heartfelt thing to do.
Buying young girls after you have sex with them seems like something a morally deprived cockroach might do.
Oh, and one more thing.
