Texas lawmakers cut sex ed from two six-month courses to a single unit of “abstinence only” education. But early indications showed that the program wasn’t working. In fact, teens in almost all high school grades were having more sex after undergoing the abstinence only program. By 2007, Texas had the highest teen birth rate in the nation.
hahaha oh Texas. You and your silly censorship. Thanks to you, we’ll have more silly, misinformed kids who will breed even MORE silly, misinformed children who will be protected from the pesky truth-you know, that Thomas Jefferson was one of the main authors of the constitution.
and all I could think about was how much I’ve cried this year. I mean, of course in the past, I’m girly and I cried when crying was appropriate. But only when crying was appropriate. Or when I deemed it so by not being able to hold onto whatever was bothering me. And it appears that the particular number of times has doubled or tripled in the past year.
Am I weaker than before? Or has there simply just been more to cry about this year?
And please, the next time you’re about to tease someone for being a lowly Hufflepuff, or a slimy Slytherin, or a stuck up Ravenclaw or even a foolish Gryffindor, just remember that we are all Hogwarts students. We’re all part of the magic.
Today in my biology class we were talking about hurricane Katrina. My teacher asked this really slutty girl what some of the effects of the hurricane were, and she replied, "well everything got all wet and dirty." Suddenly the quietest guy in class looks up and goes, "Kate, no one asked about your weekend."
