Carlos works as an HIV counselor/educator, and he constantly runs into that brick wall of Abstinence Only programs, whether it be from the churches or the schools. These people do not believe that teaching responsibility, along with sex education, is the way to go.
Case in point:
Two 8th graders at Aynor Middle School have been suspended after they were caught having sex in the boy’s bathroom. A worker walked into the bathroom to refill a hand sanitizer dispenser when he saw a male and female, both 14 years old, involved in “inappropriate sexual contact.”
The two students have been suspended, and are subjected to a hearing to determine if they should be sent to an alternative school, or be allowed to return to their school on probation.
I have a suggestion.
How about telling these kids to spend more time in math class and less time strokin’ in the boy’s room? Why not sit these kids down and give them an education about sex and the repercussions of sex without protection…teen pregnancy…HIV…STD…AIDS?
Those aren’t exactly the kinds of letters Mom and Dad want you to bring home from school.
But we preach abstinence here in South Carolina because that’s the way the Bible Thumpers want it.
So I guess they don’t mind their children having children.
