This may just be the worst argument against sex education that I've ever seen:

"There are kids who don't want to know how to put on a condom, because they don't want to have sex," said Leslee Unruh, president and chief executive of the South Dakota-based National Abstinence Clearinghouse, the nation's largest network of abstinence educators. "So why can't kids who want to abstain have equal time, funding and education in the classroom as kids who are having sex?"

There is a name for that: willful ignorance.

Oh yeah, because once they're married, they will want all the kids they can have, no matter the impact.

It makes me crazy that they think condoms are only for teens or singles having sex -- do they really think they'll want fifteen kids or that they'll stop sleeping with their spouse when their family is large enough?

And, honestly, it's right up there with "I'm not going to college, so why should I learn math?"

I didn't want to read Howard Zinn. Why can't kids who don't want to read horrendously biased, shakily-written, speculative history books get equal time, funding, and education in the classroom? :P

Hey now, it really is a waste of time for us eternally single celibate people! And I'm pretty sure there might be as many as dozens, I say, dozens of us in this country, all being made to waste precious hours in sex education classes! ;)

I dunno... they can still be pretty interesting wasted hours. In middle school, at which point I had about as much interest in relationships as I did in bowel cancer, I spent most of "the miracle of life" pondering what it would be like to be a sperm. I think I missed the point...
