The assertion that using a condom turns the dangerous practice of fornication into “safe sex” is neither medical, nor scientific. Sorry. Public schools vary, of course, but our society as a whole has largely bought into the idea that anything that turns you on is fine as long as it’s consensual, nobody gets pregnant and you take minimal steps to prevent disease transmission. It’s inevitable that such a message ends up being taught to our kids as if it were ‘scientific.’
THAT, my friend, is what the world is trying to thrust on our kids.
I’d agree with you if the TRUTH about contraceptives, STDs and condoms were taught in sex ed. But they’re not. Disease transmission, unlike pregnancy, can happen at ANY time of the month. In typical use, condoms are appallingly ineffective at preventing pregnancy (high failure rate). Given that, I’m not sure why people have such confidence that they will prevent STD transmission. Seems like a literally flimsy hope.
