The other day I was surfing the EdenFantasys forums and came across a very interesting topic: Should condoms be given out at school? Across the U.S. this seems to be a topic that is heated. Some people feel liked students shouldn't have access to condoms because it encourages them to have sex and others feel like it will help their children stay safe during the sex they are already going to have anyway.
You can read the forum here.
While I don't have any children of my own, I think that I have enough experience to say that it is a good thing to offer condoms to students. Why? I am the product of a teen mother. My mother had me at 16 years old, and even though I wouldn't change my childhood for the world I do know that it was very hard for her. Now I am in my late 20s and I things have changed so much since I was in high school, and way more than when she was attending.
When I was junior high I can remember how holding hands was a huge deal at school. The kids weren't really talking about sex, and anyone who was suspected of having sex was instantly labeled a "whore." Now, you hear about 12-year-olds getting pregnant or catching dreadful STDs. That is so sad and way too young.
In high school I was awfully hard headed and when I wanted to do something I did it. I didn't really care what anyone thought and I also was very good at not getting caught. Granted I didn't do anything too terribly bad, I was just a typical teen that went to parties laced with booze, T.P.'d a few houses, and even ditched class. From what I can tell, teens haven't changed much from when I was in school. They get up, go to school, and have a lot of urges they aren't sure how to deal with. What does this mean? It means when a teen has it in their head they are having sex, it will happen whether or not they have a condom. So, while it may be "condoning teenage sex" it isn't like we can stop it without taking teens and locking them in their closets until they are at an acceptable age to have sex. So why not provide teens with education and protection in order to stop teen pregnancy and halt the spread of STDs.
I know this is a controversial topic and if you decided to respond, please be courteous and reply in an adult manner. All offensive replies will be deleted.
