When 15 High School Girls in 100 Get Pregnant

Ah, the Sexual Revolution marches on! At Timken High School in Canton Ohio, 65 self-empowered, explorational, open-minded young women have... well, done what "we all know" teenagers do, and gotten themselves pregnant with the willing assistance of the boys of Timken High. Since there are a total of 490 female students at Timken, that's a 15% pregnancy rate--about double the national average. Way to go, Timken! Except for the condom use, you are right there with the zietgeist of the social elites. Explore those bodies! Own your sexual power!

And while you're at it, figure out how exactly you plan on being 14, 15, 16, or 17 year old mommies. But if that seems to daunting, just have a "procedure." Your parents don't need to know. You goofed, it's not your fault.

So in response to the... well, utterly unforseeable consequences of sexual liberation, the adminstration of Timken High proposes a Three Prong Program of "education" to "address pregnancy, prevention and parenting."

My question is, why not shame the girls who got pregnant and even moreso, the boys who got them pregnant? Stand them up in front of the entire student body and denounce them as examples of what not to do when you are in high school and can't possibly cope rationally with the consequences of your decision to have sex. Call that kind of behavior what it is--foolish, selfish, and destructive. Make them to regret their decision, and they will spread the word.

Sound insensitive? Sure it is. But it's the right thing to say at just the time when a lot of those kids need to hear it. Our message to kids about teen sex should be the same as teen drunk driving: do it, and we will damn well make you regret it.

It's time kids feared their parents and teachers again. Worked for me. And millions of others just like me, until the social elites decided they wanted to make friends out of their charges.

Come to think of it, I wouldn't mind standing them up in front of the student body for a good dose of shame while we're at it.

Our beautiful daughter lives in a way that most would not because they would be rejected by there peers. As alone as she is sometimes at least she sleeps in peace at night because unlike what we have been told she respects herself enough to know better, shame on people who expect less from there kids they live up to what we expect, ours has gone way beyond that. :)
Love you, your much better half

Are you sugesting that teenage girls not have sex? Oh, man! How am I supposed to get laid now? Teenage girls are easy prey. Now your going to give them a reason not to have sex with me?!!

Disclaimer: The above is satire. If you are a parent of a teenage girls and this scared you, it ought to have, because older guys do prey on them. They will continue to as long as we keep them ignorant.

Let's not. How do you propose fixing the problem, Anonymous?
