teen sexuality

Thanks to browngirl for the URLs.

From The National Campaign to Prevent Teen Pregnancy, an ad campaign.

From Planned Parenthood, a far better one.

My feedback on the former:
How old are you? 25 and older
What is your gender? Female
checked other, "e-mail from a friend"

What is your opinion of the ads?
I think they're awful.
I think you're promoting feelings of shame and despair which are the last things teenagers need to have added to their emotional turmoil.

Did the ads make you think about teen pregnancy?
No.
 
Did the ads make you want to talk to your friends, parents, or anybody else about teen pregnancy?
No.
 
What does "sex has consequences" mean to you?
It means that honest communication and caution are both necessary parts of a sexual relationship.
 
What do you think the worst part of getting pregnant or getting someone pregnant would be?
I decline to answer the question on the grounds that it may be used for another ad campaign I disapprove of.

Bush would prefer that nobody in the country has sex but rich white folk...and then, only to produce *more* rich white folk.

Bringing a child into a society that is unaccepting and that degrades people who don't conform to it's standards: the kind of society that produces these ads.

Ah yes, sounds like I filled this out a while ago. I didn't like it either. For one thing, I think unless you have very strong religious reasons for why premarital sex would be a problem for you, not having sex before marriage is a big mistake. I have a rant about this on my web site.

*sighs*

But then, teaching kids to have sex responsibly would be like hard, you know?
