Here's a shock -- a new study shows that those abstinence-only sex-ed programs that Boy George's highly moral state is so famous for making famous?
You know, the ones where the only thing the teachers are allowed to tell kids about contraception is that it doesn't work?
And instead? They're supposed to tell kids to Just Not Have Sex?
That's right, the programs with the Heavy Moral and Religious Messages? Teaching Our Children Morals, Despite What Those Liberals Think We Should Do, And Actually Teaching Them Real Facts Instead?
These programs don't work.
Can I get a collective D'oh?
The study showed about 23 percent of ninth-grade girls, typically 13 to 14 years old, had sex before receiving abstinence education. After taking the course, 29 percent of the girls in the same group said they had had sex.
Boys in the tenth grade, about 14 to 15 years old, showed a more marked increase, from 24 percent to 39 percent, after receiving abstinence education.
