Sex-ed & Free Condoms In Schools

Tue Nov 21, 2000 6:36 am

Hello everyone,

On a recent thread School Prayer ... someone posted and i quote: [...]its your anti-prayer, pro-sex-ed, free condoms, philosophy that has taken over in the last few years[...]
After reading this I was asthonished to find out that some person are actually against sex education and against giving out free condoms. I am sorry but I just don't understand that, I had sex-ed a few years ago when I was in H.S, and find it very useful, as the teacher teached us how to detect testicles cancer for the men and breast cnacer for the women. Now about giving free condoms ...what's wrong with that AIDS and other sexual-transmitted diseases are very present in the world today, so why not protect everyone including H.S kids from it. It is the only way right now to protect us from this so why refrain it? Just because it might give people some sexual ideas? Nah i doubt it.

Please let me know your views on this
Thanks

Nicolas

Okay, ive been taken out of context again. The point was, that everyone agrees that schools are going to pot (no pun intended) but schools have declined faster in the last decade then EVER in history, and im simply making the conection that the only difference between this decade, and previous ones, is the new era of sex-ed, and getting rid of God.

And YES, i think that free condoms says "its okay to have sex, as long as you are 'safe'"

Let me explain. When a kid is handed a condom, this condom represents a rationalization to having premarital sex; something that, in the past, has been discouraged. People are ALWAYS looking for something that can rationalize thier actions that they want to do, but cant because of thier conscience.

And what about these STD's?? they are more rampant today then EVER in the history of the world. If people would have sex in the context that has traditionally been accepted, WE WOULDNT NEED CONDOMS. But why are we seeing this surge in casual sex??? simply put, because we are encouraging it by free condoms and a overall transformation of our culture towards immorality.

Lets think of it this way. Why does a person need to use a condom?? because that person may want to have sex with someone they dont know well enough to know if they even HAVE an STD. (sorry that sounds a bit "tongue twisted" but you know what i mean..) SOOO, in all common sense, the only people that need a condom are those who want to have sex with people they DONT KNOW very well.

Sorry if that sounded confusing, but the point is, that when we hand out condoms to kids, they think "wow, now i don't have to worry about who i sleep with because it will be perfectly safe."


How about another fun example???  
(sorry for this being so long)

What would you think if, instead of handing out condoms to 8 year olds, we gave them each a porno, a tissue, and a leaflet on proper masturbation techniques?
After all, we are encouraging "SAFE SEX" and pornos dont give STD's.

Okay, now who can tell me, in all seriousness, that ANY 8 year old kid would take one look at the porno and say "eww!! im not going to have sex till im married!!" HAHAHAHAHA.. yeah right, it will just increase the sexual desire of that child....

Sheeeshh... its really not that difficult to figure out people!!! i could write for hours on this forum (i wont for the sake of everyone else   )because it seems so very obvious, but some people are just clamouring for anything that eases the guilt of thier own immorality... *and thats not a generalization, you know who you are*

Want to know how to solve the STD problem?? its simple, in fact, even little ME knows the answer!! it is this: QUIT SLEEPING AROUND!!!

this would also help reduce abortions and unwanted pregnancies, it would reduce the huge number of kids that grow up without parents... on and on the benefits go!!!!

Nicolas,

In this day and age we are "pissing in the wind"

Whether you treat this type of education with truth and openess or hope that ignorance will prevail, there is so much access to information that neither will work.

We are all as a worldly society sick of reading about
food that is bad for you, excessive wanking causing testicular cancer and blindness etc, so, we all form our own opinions and become blarze to serious problems.

The majority thinks they are an expert on everything.....but....some advice if I may......use skillful questioning "what" "when" "how" "why" "where" to find out the real facts and THEN FORM AN OPINION!

Chris28_17: Alright, you say that you think that condoms says it is ok to have sex. Don't forget that this interpretatiopn depends from one kid to another, but generally I think you are right. But so what? If they want to have sex, let them. First time I did it I was 16, and I'm haven't turned into a big pervert.

I think the reason between outr different views is probably as you said the pre-marital sex. I'm pro, you're con, that's where all the difference is. But what is it gonna change to your life if you make love before getting married with someone? Just because it is in the bible? Come on please do you respect everything that is said in there?

Now about the STD, yes it's true that just quiting having sex is a mean of getting rid of these diseases, but i think it is a bit extreme no? Like for instance if you fell off your bike instead of getting a plaster on your knee the doc would automatically cut it. The condoms have proven themselves to be very reliable (99.8% reliable if I recall correctly) so for most of the people it is an acceptable way of protecting themself.

Here's one little story for you, i'm not very proud of it but it is fun. When i was about 10 some sort of program was lauched all around France which was that you could get a condom for 25 cents, and for fun I went to bought it someday. I still remember that I bought 8 of them. Do you think I screw 8 people with it? No, not at all, I made water ballons with it and thorw 'em out of my appratement balcony on people ...was pretty funny  

Red Leicester: I see you are rather new here so welcome aboard. What do you mean when you say Pissing in the wind?!

Okay, ive been taken out of context again.

I don't think you were. Your comment was taken exactly how you intended for it to be taken.

The point was, that everyone agrees that schools are going to pot (no pun intended) but schools have declined faster in the last decade then EVER in history, and im simply making the conection that the only difference between this decade, and previous ones, is the new era of sex-ed, and getting rid of God.

So it wouldn't also have anything to do with parents working longer hours, and the schools becoming ever more responsible for the raising of kids.

n a kid is handed a condom, this condom represents a rationalization to having premarital sex; something that, in the past, has been discouraged.

Puhleeze. Giving a kid a condom is not giving him the green light to go and #$@! like a minkrat. It is merely saying to him (or her) that IF you do have sex, use it as it is unsafe not too.

And you say premarital sex in the past has been discouraged. This for the most part has been true. However, my mother was unmarried and 17 when she had her first kid, her mother was 16 and unmarried when she had her first, her mother was 15 and unmarried for her first, and her mother was 16 (but married) when she had her first. So here you have a history going back to the 1860s of premarital sex. And if anyone has the nerve to say that my family is a special case, you have no idea what you are talking about.

And what about these STD's?? they are more rampant today then EVER in the history of the world. If people would have sex in the context that has traditionally been accepted, WE WOULDNT NEED CONDOMS.

Please tell us the context in which sex has been traditionally accepted. There has always been casual sex, there has always been anal sex, there has always been gay sex, there has always been oral sex. So is there a new way of having sex that I (and most other people) are unaware of and "dying" to try out?

But why are we seeing this surge in casual sex??? simply put, because we are encouraging it by free condoms and a overall transformation of our culture towards immorality.

See comment above. I.E. There has always been casual sex. The only reason you hear about it is because of the media.

Lets think of it this way. Why does a person need to use a condom?? because that person may want to have sex with someone they dont know well enough to know if they even HAVE an STD. (sorry that sounds a bit "tongue twisted" but you know what i mean..) SOOO, in all common sense, the only people that need a condom are those who want to have sex with people they DONT KNOW very well.

Ahhhh...to twist words to meet your own ends. Can you give me lessons on how to do that?

My brother has been seeing his current girlfriend for two years now. All of that time he has been using a condom. Until they decided two months ago they want to have a child. Result: I will be an uncle by August next year.

Sorry if that sounded confusing, but the point is, that when we hand out condoms to kids, they think "wow, now i don't have to worry about who i sleep with because it will be perfectly safe."

It isn't as simple as giving them a condom. It is the responsibility of the school to give these out for the first time in such a manner that it is part of their education. Explaining how to use them, and most importantly explaining that using a condom is not foolproof.

What would you think if, instead of handing out condoms to 8 year olds, we gave them each a porno, a tissue, and a leaflet on proper masturbation techniques?

What do you find fun about giving an 8 year old porn? I find it quite sick actually. And your mind came up with this and we are to believe you are morally invincible? Puhleeze.

Because it seems so very obvious, but some people are just clamouring for anything that eases the guilt of thier own immorality... *and thats not a generalization, you know who you are*

No...puhleeze tell us all who is guilty of their immorality, and how they have broken YOUR morals. Do not push your morals onto anyone. Where is it written that your morals are so high and mighty? Oh the bible right? So you wouldn't happen to be pushing your religion on to me would you? That on its own is immoral

Want to know how to solve the STD problem?? its simple, in fact, even little ME knows the answer!! it is this: QUIT SLEEPING AROUND!!!

Nothing is this simple. Even I don't attest to know how to solve the problem of STD's because we live in a real world where people have freedom of mind and of thought, and will do what they want to do.

Giving a kid a condom is not going to make them run out and have sex. Just because I have a couple of condoms dosen't mean that I'm going to bang someone because I have them, they're there just in case I do have sex. On this issue I go by the saying "better to be safe than sorry." What if your child (even after being taught about abstinence) decided to have premarital sex? Would you want them to have access to condoms at school or have unsafe sex because they'd be afraid to talk to you about it (or they don't feel that its any of your business). When schools hand out condoms its not to get the kids to have sex, its in case the kids have sex.

Premarital sex used to be a more taboo topic than it is now...but as Brissie points out it has been going on forever...didn't start yesterday. I think I have an analogy that some of you may or may not like...a bit of a silly one  

Say that you need to drive a nail into the wall. You need a hammer to do it. But...were you thinking "I need to put a nail in the wall to hang up that picture" or "I want to use the hammer". Same case for condoms and sex. Do people think "wow it would be really cool to use a condom" or do they think "damn I'm horny" etc. People want to have sex even if there were no condoms. A condom is merely a tool used to attain the goal...but is not the reason for wanting to have sex...just allows it to take place with less risk. Think about it.

Chris,

You have a very unhealthy (mentally) attitude about sex for someone in your age bracket.

You have preached abstinance repeatedly over many posts. Perhaps you need to live a little? Giving a teenager a condom is not going to encourage them particularly to go out and rut like dogs. Most kids simply wait until they are comfortable with themselves sexually before they plunge headfirst into a sexual relationship.

To offer condoms and such through school programs gets to kids whose parents might not take an interest in their budding young teens growing awareness of sexuality. There is no excuse for parents in this day and age to not discuss such issues with their children. Responsible parents will, and encourage openess. That doesn't mean it always works, but at least if little christian "Mickey" is out sowing his seeds, he at least has some knowledge on how to protect himself from deadly diseases.

Abstinance is not the answer, look to the Catholic church and the hideous problems associated with their priests taking vows of celibacy?

Teens are going to have sex whether they have condoms or not. Might as well give them the opportunity it protect themselves if the DO have sex.

I agree with the majority here, kids are going to be having sex anyways, why not reduce the amount of teenage pregnancy and STDs by helping them protect themselves. I will be the first to admit that I am not comfortable walking into a store and buying a pack of Trojans. I think that allowing kids access to free condoms will not promote kids to have sex, it will just promote kids who are already having sex into having safe sex.

I do have a question for Chris: Are you against free condoms in school, or are you against Sex Education in general? As I've already explained, kids are going to have sex regardless of whether or not there are condoms, and whether or not there is Sex Ed, it's been going on for centuries, and it will continue to go on. But let me ask you another question: Would you rather have kids (who as I've said, are having sex anyways) have sex unprotected, and making uneducated decisions regarding their sex lives, or a society making good judgement and safer decisions? Rhetorical question, I know, but these are the questions facing society today.

Chris, are you disgusted by teens learning about a subject that has been around as long as there have been teens!? IT'S A FACT OF LIFE, IN ORDER FOR OUR SPECIE TO SURVIVE, WE MUST REPRODUCE, LEARN TO DEAL WITH IT. How can you be against having kids learn about it? I find it more disgusting to have a sexually active kid going out and dying from AIDS or a much less lethal venereal disease because people like you want to hide our children from the world. What possible argument could you have against it!?!?

Although everyone knows abstinence is the only way to be 100% sure that you won't get an STD, the condom is the next best thing. If high-schoolers want to have sex, then they should not be prevented from doing that, and they should definitely not be prevented from protecting themselves!

Issues of morality do not play into the use of condoms, as STDs nowadays can infect people now matter what "kind" of sex they have. Premarital and/or recreational sex has been around for ages, and will not go away, and one must have a very skewered mind to think that eliminating one of the best lines of defense against pregnancy and STDs will stop people from having sex in the first place. That's like trying to stop people from driving by mandating that airbags and seatbelts be taken out of cars!

And once again, even though the introduction of liberal policies has coincided with the decline of our schools, that is by no means the reason for it. More direct effects, such as an attendance explosion and poor management of finances for schools resulting in bad conditions for students and teachers have had a much larger effect on the decline of our schools.

I haven't read the above posts. They are too long for my liking. However, I have to agree with Nicolaki. Sex-ed should be taught, and condoms should be given out. It is a great way to prevent STD's and an effective means of birth control.

This is a sensitive subject I approach with great care.

If the common young people are thinking the way many of them do today (quite differently than in 1945) then perhaps the approach might be to endeavor to educate them and help them with the hardware (condoms and female parallels).

But to assume that every subculture contains a majority of youths that should get this education and hardware from the schools- is to assume an idea that is skewed. Part of the challenge here is related to the predisposal of the more innocent and pure (perhaps religious) kids receiving something, through a lecture or through just handing them something, that reminds them of a choice they can make that they already made. They are avid abstinant people that are given a tool which is designed (they might perceive) for protecting themselves if they so choose to make a major change in their will toward the dark side of the world.

Having said this, a heavy statement, I continue with the premise that in many of our American schools today the need for this education and the following administration of the hardware can be helpful. However, it is a bit like educating people on the virtues of smoking filtered cigarettes when smoking is forbidden, painting gang messages on school buildings with water-based paint and only speeding in their automobiles when it is safe to do so. If the school is giving advice to young people regarding safe-sex the young people are getting the message that sex before a serious relationship occurs is acceptable.

Our culture now is needing to decide whether the safe sex message is ultimately harmful to the future of America or if it is not. Or maybe the choice is one of the lesser of the two evils. "We'd rather you not do it with you girl friend but we want you not to get sick if you do- and we want you to keep her safe from getting pregnant."

I think we have entered a period here that much of the world reached long ago (sounds arrogant) when people aren't reaching high for spiritual meanings and other-than-animal pleasures. Today people of any age are putting away their values that separate them from the common animal (perhaps a dog) and are tracking toward excretive physical experiences, possibly to the extent of never returning as a culture to the higher cultural experiences that separate man from pig.

And to this future I suggest a pragmatic solution to teenage pregnancies and VD. Give them their little talks (perhaps more) and the condoms.

But to the higher moral subcultures that are still around in this country (many in Christian schools and families) work with the parents to educate and share with their offspring. They will feel respected and honored.

Ps- I did not read one answer here because I didn't want to write defensively. Now I should read the rest.

Yes, pre-marital sex is a sin in the Bible, but so is stealing and lying. I'm not attempting to downgrade sex to stealing, but I am simply trying to say that teens will have sex, and they might as well learn how to do so safely and responsibly.
I myself would prefer to wait until marriage, or at least 18, as sex is a rather serious thing. I'm not just saying that. It's just how I see it.
By the way, they are not handing condoms to eight year olds! They are merely making contraception accessable. They've done it in Britain. That doen't mean that British teens go at it like dogs every free moment and treat sex like evening TV!

I think most if not all schools send a notice home when sex-education is included in the curriculum for that particular year of a child's education. I know my private school did. I am pretty sure they do that too in public schools; if they didn't then I would have expected lawsuits to spring up pretty quickly.

I get really tired of all this BS really quickly.

Here's what I get, as a 17 year old male, and have gotten for the last four years...

"Don't have sex. sex can kill you. If you have sex you might get a girl pregnant. This is how you have sex, but you shouldn't have sex so never mind sex, it wasn't ever brought up. Oh by the way, there are these things called condomns, so if you're going to have sex, not that you should have sex, or at least not have sex before you get married, you might want to use one. Here's how (and here's how to have sex, again)... hell, we'll give you a complete manuel on sex just so you know what's safe about it. Oh by the way, never mind all that shit, just don't have sex and you'll be sexually safe! Well, skip sex, you'll be safe in general. Now I know at your age sex is a very important subject, but sex really is dangerous - even if a bit fun (wink wink) - but, um... sex isn't very safe all the time, y'know?"

I'm laughing my ass off at all this. If I meet a girl and fall in love with her and feel like she gives me the world and want to make her feel good, I'm going to make love to her. If I have a condom, it'll be vaginal, if not, there are half a million other things I can do to get her off and vice versa. In the mean time I've said before and say again, STDs in general are rather easy to avoid. If you're dull enough not to, seeya' in the afterlife. More than once the subject has come up between me and a girl and it's very simple. "Do you have a condom?" "No" "Then we're not going all the way" "Okay." End of story. With all this sex sex sex talk going on in schools it's no wonder so many of us are f*cking each other. Excuse my language, but I really do get sick of it. We learn by doing.

I agree - AIDS, the most quintessential STD, has a difficult time getting through skin. That's why you have to have a cut or other opening, so if the guy has a condom on, you're a LOT safer.

Wed Nov 22, 2000 12:37 pm

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.


CHRIS




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.

Nicolaki,

Apologies for the slang, "pissing in the wind" is an old
English proverb meaning you have more chance of shagging Pam Anderson than achieving what you set out to do.

In short, I was relaying that through experimentation and the conceited attitude that we ALL know what is
right for us, teenage pregnancies and spread of STD's
will never cease.

I feel this is the ultimate test that mother nature will ever throw at us.

SHE WILL WIN WHATEVER WE DO.

IT'S A FACT.

Having just completed high school (3 weeks ago) I feel that perhaps I can add a different side to this debate.

Sure I sat through the sex ed classes years ago - but do I remember what the videos or handouts said - no not really - that stuff got pushed out of the way by maths formulas, legal cases and acts and other 'more important' stuff. (more important in terms that it would improve my overall final marks to get into University)

Condoms are not available in schools in NSW (legislation was blocked by Mp's with certain religious beliefs). I'm sure most people my age would feel really bad about walking into the chemist to buy a packet of condoms. Consequently people my age who wish to have sex either do so without protection, or drive long distances to places where condoms are available via vending machines.

What good is this - the people I know that are sexually active with their respective boy/girlfriends would and do use a condom wherever possible, however access to such is not always there.

What do I think about this? Well they should be there. I feel that maybe these people that are preventing them from being there have forgoton what it was like to be 17 and 18. What we get up to and brused aside as if it never happened.

I know of one girl who fell pregnant who had to endure the difficulties of a concealed (abeit short) pregnancy from her parents and a termination all without her folks knowing.

She is a year older than me (was a good schoolmate of mine) and we chat off and on from time to time. She had a termination because she couldn't let her parents find out and as she is rather smart and a baby would have prevented her from going through University. Since she had the termination about 4 months ago - she is a totally changed person. Someone who was once the warmest friendliest person I knew (towards anyone) has become far more detched and icy in a sence. She aviods all contact with males (even myself who she knows is his own man and has no time whatsoever for a girlfriend nor desires a better half) wherever possible.

Could this have been prevented ... Yes. I know for a fact that she would have used one had one been available (they were on previous acts) and given the statistics - this would probably be enough to have prevented the pregnancy.

My slant on this is sexual acts occour, in fact I would say the majority of my year would have tried it at least once before finishing school.

Well - If one thing is to be achieved it should be to have the condoms available so as that they can be used to prevent unwanted pregnancys and STD's.

Best Regards
