What Diana says here:
My (usually male) students who argue that we don't need to teach birth control methods or protections against STDs in high schools because abstinence is all anyone needs to know about -- and they know that this is true because they do just fine without sex, don't they? -- just miss the point.
They aren't the universe. They aren't the world. Their situation isn't everyone's situation.
Barbara Bush is missing it too, of course. Maybe she can just say no. Maybe her marriage and her life allows her that right, that luxury. Not everyone lives on her planet, though.
