What if the reason that your son's math teacher was giving over incorrect information was because she felt that when it comes to numbers, we shouldn't dictate or limit choices? I would image that you would be calling the school the next morning to have a word with the principal.
So, how about this: go onto Planned Parenthood's website and find the teen information section. Then, select the subsection on birth control. I entered information as a 16 year old girl who was interested in what contraceptive would not minimize pleasure, be easy to keep private and easy to use. I did answer that "she" was in a "serious romantic relationship." A few questions later and "she" was advised to use a hormone based contraceptive with no STD preventive qualities. By the way, they didn't even ask if either partner had previously been sexually active with anyone else.
The need to "Drain The Swamp" rears its head again. If you are interested in a book that will reveal the agenda that drives the misinformation that passes as Sex Ed, then you should check out Dr. Miriam Grossman's, "You're Teaching My Child What?" But, if you are a parent of a teen, then you absolutely need to read this book.
Written by a psychiatrist who deals with the fallout from lies, half-truths and a whole industry that shuns scientific literature when it's inconvenient, you will be shown why your child is being put at a much greater risk for permanent damage, both physical and psychological. As I thought about how to structure a review of this book, I debated whether I should review the history and arguments presented throughout the book. I've decided against doing so. I think that a good book review helps the reader decide if they would enjoy a particular book. But, to rewrite the book would feel like an exercise in plagiarism.
However, I will pique your interest by letting you in on a few topics that are discussed:
- The twisted life of the founder of modern Sex Ed and the critiques of the research that underlie and justify his philosophy
- The pornographer who guides kids online
- Neuropsychology, brain development and how risk-taking among teens means that the promises of protection offered by condom use is a dream
- What condoms don't prevent & why
- Why what your child is told about the dangers of anal sex can get them killed
- HPV rates, the immature cervix and cancer in teen girls
- How feminism leaves girls particularly at risk of depression and poor mate selection.

In addition, "You're Teaching My Child What?" tackles very touchy issues such as the development of gender identity and sexual orientation. It's sure to irritate many. But, the book is a must read and may save your child untold harm.
Oh, by the way, the same Planned Parenthood elsewhere mentions that the advice given above could be a disaster: "The only 100% guaranteed way to not get an STD is to not have any kind of sex – also known as abstinence. If you’re sexually active, some activities are safer than others... Genital rubbing with clothes on is safer than genital rubbing without clothes. All of these things are called 'safer sex.'”
- So, what about the contraceptive method suggested above for the fictional 16 year old girl?
- FYI, anal sex is 20 times more likely to result in HIV.
I really would appreciate feedback, especially from parents, about these issues.
