Reoccuring Annoyance No. 15502

Why doesn’t anyone seem to understand that if children were thoroughly educated about sex, they would make less stupid sex-related decisions? It doesn’t matter what your religion is, or what your morality dictates about sexual behavior. If people don’t have information to allow them to behave intelligently, they almost certainly won’t behave intelligently. You can’t just ask them to do what you want. They have to know why. It’s not a well-informed decision if no one’s been informed. And sex is one thing that can’t be avoided just for lack of good information. Go ahead, try.

    But some people would prefer that people not behave intelligently, but behave as they would be told to behave. Like Communists for one, government for the other.

    Besides, behaving intelligently is in the eye of the beholder. Who’s to say that leaving blog comments instead of actually picking up the phone and talking to each other is an intelligent way to behave? ;)
