You mean we can't teach teens about sexuality like they're five years old??

Speaking of government's desire to control our personal lives, here's the lead from an LA Times article today that should surprise nobody who understands anything about teenagers or education. But it will undoubtedly be ignored by social conservatives who have never let factual information get in the way of their agenda to control our lives:

Young adults who as teenagers took pledges not to have sex until marriage were just as likely to contract a venereal disease as people who didn't make the promise, according to a study in the Journal of Adolescent Health.

So if we don't give teenagers complete and accurate information, they end up making bad choices? What a shocker!
