More than nine out of 10 Americans, men and women alike, have had premarital sex, according to a new study. The high rates extend even to women born in the 1940s, challenging perceptions that people were more chaste in the past.
“The data clearly show that the majority of older teens and adults have already had sex before marriage, which calls into question the federal government’s funding of abstinence-only-until-marriage programs for 12- to 29-year-olds,” Finer said.
“It would be more effective,” Finer said, “to provide young people with the skills and information they need to be safe once they become sexually active — which nearly everyone eventually will.”
Personally, I am shocked and appalled. How dare people choose to engage in healthy, enjoyable behavior. I, for one, think that we should not instruct young adults to use condoms. That way, when they inevitably engage this type of appalling behavior and have not been instructed to use any sort of protection, we can actually say it's unhealthy! That way we can mask our religious rhetoric under the banner of "health".
Those "liberals" are always trying to get me to instruct my teens to use condoms if they engage in sex. But that's just encouraging them to engage in dangerous sexual behavior! That's also why I never instructed my kids to use a fire extinguisher. That's just encouraging them to set themselves on fire! But that's just what those liberals want to happen!
