Thanks Abstinence Only!

The good folks at Scarleteen have taken to Twitter to thank Abstinence-only education for all the good it’s accomplished in our lives. You can join them by posting #ThanksAbsOnly along with your own personalized message of “gratitude”. Some of my faves so far:

“#thanksabonly for giving young people the idea that sex is emotionally risky but marriage is not.”

“#thanksabonly for helping the U.S. STD rates reach record highs & syphilis make a comeback.”

“#thanksabonly for helping Texas win in both teen prgenancy & repeat teen pregnancy!”

“#thanksabonly for teaching absolutely NOTHING about sex except it’s BAD.”

“#thanksabonly for currently giving me a job undoing everything that was taught to this generation.”

What has Abstinence-only education done for you lately?
