Nothing freaks me out/pisses me off more than abstinence-only education. Basically, it’s the most naive form of sex education you can get: Sex is bad, don’t have it until you’re married, contraception doesn’t work. Somehow educators think this will convince kids to not have sex. Compare that to comprehensive sex education that teaches abstinence but also makes sure that teens have medically correct information about contraception, STDs, and the like. It’s reality-based sex ed that understands that no matter how many scare tactics you throw at people, they’re still going to do what they want.
