Not gonna read comments. Article is a bullshiat screed against not sucking off every Dick in a three mile radius. If you are stupid enough to think that free love still applies with the current court system and aids still kickin it then you are retarded and deserve to die.

And yes ladies, I'm single, put my cock in your moth you retarded sluts.

Y'all do realise that you can be rendered infertile by non detectable sti's right? This isn't crazy, just basic farking science dipshiats. Have fun with the herpes whores.

This applies to all gender identifications equally, because fark you.

C'mon, we have our share of asshat fundies, too.

Yes, but we hide ours far better, and our share is a hell of a lot smaller due to the tiny proportion of the population we make up.

cuzsis: Public school hopefully teaches you literacy (sometimes?), basic math, and the knowledge that there are things like history, science, art, and music in existence out there. Anything else is gravy and you should consider yourself lucky.


Then you have an awful school system. School teaches children many things, many of which are not even in a curriculum, such as social skills. Teaching children about sex is very important and most people aren't exactly qualified to do so in a proper fashion (and the people in this article and prime examples). And this is a subject that will dramatically affect people's lives. That is why it should be taught in schools and before most of them start doing it anyways.

redslippers: I just went and go the paper insert from my daughter's pills. It says that the pill is 97% effective with "perfect use" and 74% effective with "typical use". So, for what it is worth, 26 women out of 100 who are sexually active and taking the pill the way normal people do will get pregnant in a given year while on the pill.

/I didn't make that up. That is what the literature says that came in the pill box.


I would question those numbers as the statistics I have seen put it around 8-9% and 0.3%, but that perfectly illustrates why this kind of education is needed and reinforce the risks even with protection. That said there are a number of different pills and your daughter's situation could change which is best for her.
To get that "typical use" as close to "perfect use" as humanly possible. And to make sure they double up with condoms. Combined use of the most common pills and standard condoms has a failure rate of 1.4% with typical usage and 0.009% with perfect usage. And there are a number of options more effective than the pill, especially implants and IUD as they pretty much eliminate human error of the user as a risk factor. But they have their own issues.Unfortunately males don't have a lot of non-permanent options, so a lot of this does fall on the woman. Plus you want to use the condom anyway for the STD protection even if the woman is taking the pill. And let's not forget to make sure they are aware of options should they think something went wrong with the primary methods.

Yes. I am Jewish, with five kidlets (or as I refer to them, minions). My youngest if four, my oldest if 17. My husband is Lutheran. I was raised in south Georgia, which isn't much fun when you are a Jew. Some of the honest to goodness questions I got growing up: "Jewish, is that kinda like Cath'lic?" "Why don't you wear a cross? They're so purdy" and my personal favorites (it's a tie) "I know you're Jew-ish, but where do you go to church?" and "But Jesus WAS a Jew. How can you not love Jesus? He was one of your people!".

Wait, you're telling me I could have gotten minions, hmm, oh well to late now. And well as someone that grew up in Baptist land I feel your pain, granted was raised Methodist where all you had to do is show up on Sunday, don't confuse that with Free Methodist that believe in the laying on of hands thing. Mother was raised Church of Christ where she learned everyone not one of them would go to hell, well thankfully she gave that up.

Truthfully I believe Jesus would of been more likely to say we are all children of god so let's be nice to one another. And if you read the Gnostic stuff that's basically what he said.

I don't bother. My kids are raised reform. My family loves my husband. My rabbi is cool with it. The treasurer of our temple is openly agnostic, so I feel comfortable there. I don't really worry about the judgment of those who think themselves my betters, as they are generally wrong. Moral superiority is an oxymoron.

Life DOES begin at conception and you don't have to be a conservative to believe that FACT. You have to be in denial to excuse your love to killing children to even pretend that a fetus is not a living being.

Little known truth:  If you use ALL CAPS when referring to a *Fact*, that is all that is needed to make it true.   It must be, otherwise people wouldnt continue to use the tactic, coupled with not providing any real facts to support their point what-so-ever.

gweilo8888: OK, guys, we need to pick our battles here. If Republicans want to scare their kids into not having sex, that's a good thing. Less Republican brats having sex means less knocked-up Republicans. Less knocked-up Republicans means less baby Republicans. Less baby Republicans means fewer Republicans in the next generation. It's Darwin at work, and best of all, they clearly don't understand a word of it.

If we let them keep this up, I give it a few generations until Republicans are extinct as the Dodo, and just as culturally relevant.

A fertilized egg is not a foetus, nor is it a child.

True, but if it survives it will become one and then the other.
It's not going to become bread or a piggy or a tomato tree or a BLT.

That makes it human. That does not make it a Human.
A skin cell, given the right conditions (say, a cloning lab), can become a fetus, and a child. But that does not mean every skin cell IS a child.

Teenagers are going to have sex. Whether you want to believe it or not, the vast majority of people will have sex before marriage and most will have sex while in high school. And there is nothing you can do to stop this.

The capacity for reproduction doesn't occur until fairly late in fetal development.  While they're part of the larger ongoing process of capital-L life, an early fetus is not, itself, technically a living organism.

redslippers: I look at it like this: A woman has a right to choose what goes on in her body, up until the point of true viability. The baby has a right to live, from the point of viability until a time of it's choosing. Your body, your choice. You want an abortion? So long as that fetus hasn't reached a point where it can easily survive outside the womb without long term issues (that seems to be somewhere between 24 and 30 weeks, depending on the expert - and I have ZERO desire to argue that point), go for it. After that, as soon as that infant becomes an adult, it can choose to end it's own life if circumstances arise that make that a reasonable option (terminal illness, etc.). Seems like a reasonable approach to me.


I'm pretty much on that page.

I've recently come to the conclusion that school districts, state government, or individual schools (whichever is appropriate) should be held liable for child support for every pregnant teenager who's sex education was predominately abortion only due the policies in practice.

While it is the teen's choice to have sex or not to have sex, it is because of these policies that they are denied accurate, relevant information to make any kind of rational decision. And that is absolutely the fault of the people who draft and enforce these policies.

I daresay abstinence-only presenters come dangerously close to comitting outright, legal fraud with their willful misrepresentation of reality in order to make money, without any kind of "for entertainment purposes only" disclaimer.

Bandito King: RedVentrue: Bandito King: RedVentrue: Jim_Callahan: NutWrench: Life began about a billion years ago and it's a continuous, ongoing process.

Well, the criteria for being a living organism inculde capacity for metabolism, growth, reaction to stimuli, and reproduction.

The capacity for reproduction doesn't occur until fairly late in fetal development.  While they're part of the larger ongoing process of capital-L life, an early fetus is not, itself, technically a living organism.

If it can gain the ability through it's normal course of development it does.

If you are an adult, then you are not currently growing, and therefore not alive.

That's the reason I refuse to eat pecans. They will eventually develop into trees, therefore they are already trees. You can't eat trees, that would be crazy.

I eat trees. Heat of palm is yummy. I also use them to smoke other food.

I don't eat human fetus, though.

And I don't abort nuts. I just wish nuts wouldn't be so concerned about abortion.


I guess it's alright for a Mom to drown her kids in the bathtub then. There's no difference between that and abortion, except for some more time has passed.

hasty ambush: Should we look at "facts" liberals teach and othe rthings they do with tax dollars?

ALL white people are racists

Not even going near this one... I'll just say that if everyone but you is being bitten by mosquitoes, you'll never notice that they exist. Too many white people, especially white males, float blissfully through life without even noticing the racism that exists in this society. Maybe it's because they're not being bitten by the mosquitoes. College and college courses are supposed to be designed to expose their students to ideas they may not have considered before, and this is one of them. That's how it's supposed to work.

professor compelled students in her graphic design class to create artwork opposing firearms on campus and opposing pro-gun legislation currently pending before the Texas state legislature.

No guns on college campuses? I really don't see a problem with this. In my 3rd year graphic design course we created anti-pollution campaigns. Should we have been pro-pollution instead? College is a place for learning, not hunting. Keep your phallic substitutes off campus.

College Professor forced to students to sign pledge to vote for Obama
College fires professor who forced students to sign pledge to vote for Obama

That's right, other libby libs fired the professor. It's what we do.
 

Democrats to force students to reveal their sexuality
http://www.campusreform.org/blog/?ID=4764">Bill pending in Oregon would ask students at public universities to reveal sexuality
The purpose of the legislation, according to Steven Leider, a graduate student at Oregon State, who worked with lawmakers on the bill, is to help universities more easily cater to their Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender (LGBT) populations.

That's right, the info was for demographic purposes and voluntary, so that the university would know how many counselors, facilities, and programs it might need for LGBT students. This type of information has been asked from students about their race or ethnic group, their sex, their family finances and income, their religion, their home states, and more for decades. It's how the school figures out who needs what, and how much. Not only that, it's a bill pending before the Oregon legislature. 

You lying sack of sh*t.

Steak_Cake_Sause: The Southern Dandy: sparkeyjames: Why do conservatives have to lie about every farking thing?

Yes.  Conservatives are only concerned with outward appearances.  Underlying truth is irrelevant to conservatives.

Anecdotally, Texas has the highest number of cosmetic surgeries in the nation.  BAM!

False eqivalece


How so?

There is a ton of difference. I suspect those differences have been pointed out to you in the past and you have ignored them because they don't fit your narrative.

Here is one more attempt to educate you, just in case your troll bowl was getting low:

An embryo is a multicellular diploid eukaryote in its earliest stage of development.
In organisms that reproduce sexually, once a sperm fertilizes an egg cell, the result is a cell called the zygote that has all the DNA of two parents.
A fetus is a developing mammal or other viviparous vertebrate, after the embryonic stage and before birth.

So in other words: they are discrete stages of development, which is why we have different names for them, and not just, "the same".

In animals, the development of the zygote into an embryo proceeds through specific recognizable stages of blastula, gastrula, and organogenesis. Organogenesis, in case you're wondering, is the generation of organs, which do not exist prior to that point. No heart, no lungs, no brain. Souls don't exist, and a collection of undifferentiated cells is not a human being. I am not the least bit sorry if that hurts your feelings, btw, superstition is the enemy of mankind and churches of all denominations should be bulldozed.

For the record, "you" are the processes that are ongoing in your body to maintain consciousness. Without the impulses and chemical processes involved in the functioning of your brain, you don't exist. A body is just a shell; hardware for the constant, on-going, collection of processes (a cross between ram and firmware, if we continue the metaphor) that make up your (thankfully) unique mind.

Say what you want about aborting a non-viable fetus, you might be able to make some good points, although I doubt it. But you simply cannot argue with any credence that every stage of development is the same thing "but less so". I could be a stunt-man some day, it doesn't make me half a stunt-man right now.

redslippers: I just went and go the paper insert from my daughter's pills. It says that the pill is 97% effective with "perfect use" and 74% effective with "typical use". So, for what it is worth, 26 women out of 100 who are sexually active and taking the pill the way normal people do will get pregnant in a given year while on the pill.

/I didn't make that up. That is what the literature says that came in the pill box.


That includes all of the women who just stop taking it and don't tell their partner.

FLMountainMan: Meh.  As far as disinformation taught in classrooms goes, none of that is even top ten.

Off to go get a smallpox blanket, which is difficult for me because white people have grossly inferior spatial intelligence and, not being Oriental, I lack excellent organizational skills.  Luckily I can afford it because the Laffer Curve grants me great wealth.  Which I already had because of white privilege.

BitwiseShift: Given the prominence of St Peter in the christian religion and his very famous denial binge, it's a no-brainer that a conservative, christian group would come up with lots of crap like this. It's a major part of their religion.

Of course, they'd deny it.
