Not all of us. Things will change eventually. The blue-hairs are dying and the Mormons are having fewer children. Things are looking up for the 2028 elections.

Highest poverty rates, lowest educational levels, highest teen pregnancy rates, and highest numbers of religious people.

I used to believe in that kind of crap until I actually lived in different places.  Now that I live in New York (originally from Texas),  I realize how untrue that is.  After all, I see beautiful people from all over the world here on regular basis.

Ironically, I lived in New Mexico for 4 years.  In short, those are some of the ugliest people I have ever lived  with.

Abstinence has a 100% effectiveness when properly used, but the lowest possible effectiveness when improperly applied, and a far higher rate of improper application than any other method.

Southwest, Subby. Big difference. (Well, Southwest and part of the South. And Delaware and DC.)

Though, harking back to yesterday's map thread, the South is distinguished by its high rate of sexually-transmitted diseases. So there's that.

Don't forget how super young they start at it too!  They start having kids really young and never stop.   I remember living in Santa Fe and seeing all of these 16-18 year old girls walking along the street with two kids in tow.  Contrast that to the north east.  Here people have two kids in their thirties and forties.

I too spent 7 years in NYC. Mine was more of a dig at Boston, because I agree with your sentiment. However, many "New Yorkers" are transients from other parts of the country. The best and the brightest are lured there for various reasons, which explains to me the incredible talent on display

So that map is based on STD transmission rates?  Most STDs are not deadly and can be easily treated now.

I would say this map is more a map of large amounts of unsafe sex AND poor medical treatment, rather than an actual map of people just farking.

Ok well any dig at Boston is a good one.  ;-)

Also, I'm a Texan as well. You can get a little spoiled frequenting Houston, Austin, Dallas and any of the college campuses.

Though you do realize that Boston is an even bigger college town than Austin (contrary to what Spinal Tap might think)?  I have never lived there so I won't say for sure about Boston though.  I have lived in Austin and will say that it puts up some very tough competition.

Putting aside for a moment the actual reason why population is exploding in states with high Latino immigrant populations, two of the hottest women I have ever known were from Maine.  I'd be happy to offer my services to the endangered hot Maine chick breeding program.

So states with large populations of African-Americans, Hispanics, or Native-Americans have large teen birth rates?  I'm shocked... shocked!   Maybe one day the government will make available the tools to stop this problem.

Meanwhile, I see lily white Vermont is doing fine like always on these (poverty, birth rate, medical care, std, etc) threads...

It's the British Fox News in print form (with all the deliberate petty small minded borderline racist articals that are poorly researched and deliberately slanted).

Ton of weird class baiting too- which is interesting, because that's the one way it varies from Fox news. But none of it is positive criticism- more "This is how much the Duchess of Cambridge's dress cost and she only did one engagement this week, the lazy thing. We report, you decide" kind of coverage.

I think the parents are to blame regardless of what the school teaches. Anyone who doesn't provide a means for their kid to access birth control from the moment they hit puberty is an idiot. Teenager like having sex, it's not like you suddenly start liking sex when you graduate high school.
