In effect, promising to keep doing what they’d be doing anyway. That is: not getting any, for the entire duration of their ungrateful puberty phase. After all, they are only following official government policy regarding “abstinence as the only viable way to prevent STDs“. Well the bad news for the proud virgins is that, on top of not getting laid, they do catch sexually-transmitted diseases, as shown by a recent study of the sex lives of 12,000 US adolescents . How can you catch an STD while — allegedly — not having sex?
Well, that’s the miracle of statistics (and hypocritical bigotry):
The data was gathered from young people aged 12 to 18 who were questioned again six years later.Whites who pledged virginity 2.8% – did not 3.5%
According to the study, the STD rates were:
Blacks: pledgers 18.1% – non-pledgers 20.3%
Asians: pledgers 10.5% – non-pledgers 5.6%
Hispanics: pledgers 6.7% – non-pledgers 8.6% The study’s authors say that from a statistical point of view, the rates are the same for both groups.Source: BBC News, World Edition
The explanation for these numbers does not take a genius or a statistician to figure out:A good number of those teenager who had hastily claimed they’d never consider doing such icky sticky things, must have quickly changed their mind, once the acne wore out and they found out they actually could get a date… And when it got there, I guess it was too late to consider trading Sunday School for Sex-Ed…
Hence proving once more what most experts have been saying all along: shunning sex-ed in favor of abstinence campaigns is not only gonna produce more morbidly stuck-up conservative morons, it will also help spreading AIDS and other STDs.
