OKay, first of all it is impossible for me to reply to every question thrown at me. But it is clear to me that most of you missed my point completely.
Simply put, the idea of ANY publicity is positive publicity. The more we talk about sex, good or bad, kids want to try it... plain and simple. Just like drugs, "just say no" etc.. etc... I have never heard people advocating kids to try drugs, but the more we talk about drugs in general, more kids are curious and try it.
Many of you scoffed at my own "sex life". but i am not a virgin. I never said (or forced my belief, like some accused me of) that it is wrong to have sex before marriage. I will say that it is a very good idea to wait, in fact, i often wish that I had. Let me explain why:
I doubt most kids are mature enough at 14, 15, 16... to have the selfcontrol to choose good advice over a great sexual feeling. So by giving them condoms, we are telling them that we think they are responsible enough to make this desicion.
Giving them condoms is like giving them keys to a car. Sure, maybe a 12 year old can drive a car, but can they do it responsibly?? likewise, sure a 12 year old (okay, well some 12 year olds
) has the ability to have sex, but are they really ready to handle that responsibility??
on a side note, whoever it was that made a comment about my "free porno" analogy, well what you said was pretty stupid. I, in no manner suggested this approach, if you would have actually read my post you would have seen that it was a simple analogy. I was simply pointing out how stupid it would be to do that.
Gee whiz, some of you really hear only what you want to hear....
OKay, i am COMPLETELY out-numbered in this post, no big deal
so my agruements are pretty futile and this is going to most likely be my last one in this topic.
Alright, now about this STD thing. Okay, about a year ago my family doctor had explained to me about condoms and AIDS. The micro structure of Latex (i.e. condoms...... gotta make that clear, just in case
) is such that there are tiny holes all through the substance *latex* which obviously will become larger as it is streched. The diameter of each hole is GREATER than the diameter of a single HIV virus. What does that mean?? HIV can
pass through a condom.
And that "99.8%" rate that a certain someone keeps throwing around, well, that is 100% misleading. it doesnt count things like broken condoms, or things like crabs, or even HIV. in fact im not even sure where this % came from.
Well im done. I will now go start a new topic that i think many more of you will agree with me on
just wait! you'll see.
BTW, about my personal "virginity" thing, some of you will no doubt accuse me of not "practicing what i preach". And your right, somewhat. but the girl i lost "it" to i had dated for 2 years. So i knew her pretty well and it wasnt "casual sex" which was the real point of my original topic.
