|11:43 am - Sexual Education: a decent cirriculum|
Finally, someone has gotten sex ed right.
But I would like to say, the US should not be looking to Mexico for advanced ideas about sex-ed.
(Admittedly, my favourite quote in the article is, "Ignoring what the priests tell us is part of the history of Mexico.")

Word. This is exactly the sort of sex education that countries need. As evidence: check out hte instanced of unwanted pregnance, abortion, and STD's in more liberal countries in Europe. More than hald what they are here and way less than half what they are in mexico. The numbers strongly indicate that the more you repress sex the worse your sexual problem are.
Ashley and I have decided to become TA's. It's part of our self-training as the founding members of the IOSM. We were thinking of TA-ing Calculus -101 (Calculus for Rocks and Other Inaminate Objects), but now maybe I'm thinking Sex Ed would be more fun. Harder, no doubt, but at least dressing up as a sexy professor and preying on innocent freshmen would be a lot more fun in there. *beams*
About what I would expect from Mexico these days, and no doubt the Libs will try (unsuccessfully) to pass similar nonsense here.
It's amazing, but for hundreds of years we somehow managed to survive as a society without being taught about the socially "responsible" nature of these practices. How did Laura Ingalls manage to avoid unwanted pregnancy when that little schoolhouse on the prairie lacked such crucial learning materials?! Surely it couldn't have been from her repressive Puritanical parents with all their whacked out God talk.
Heh. They ought to change their name to "SEXico".
