Family Fist have ushered in 2012 with a poll of teenagers on sex ed. It’s fairly predictable, so my response is in bullet point format:
- LOL, Curia “Market Research”.
- Apparently we should teach values, which currently aren’t being taught, but shouldn’t teach things like “it’s okay to play with a person’s privates if they consent”, which isn’t a value.
- Majority of teens felt parents “should be told”. This obviously means “doctors must violate patient confidentiality” and not, say, that the majority of teens who get pregnant would tell their parents – I mean, that’s only what we filthy prochoicers have always said usually happens anyway.
- Teenagers’ views largely reflect their parents’. TRULY THIS IS SHOCKING. I mean, it’s not like parents are in any position to influence their children’s views or anything.
But I’m sure some intern at Stuff will get paid to write this all up like it’s relevant, accurate, reliable, or news.
