There’s a good chance that, if you live America, you live in one of the 22 states that don’t mandate Sex Education (cough, Mississippi! cough). Or worse, you live in one that doesn’t require that the information you receive is medically accurate.
That’s right, only 22 states provide horny kids with sex education, and only 13 states require that the lessons they get are actually true. WTF? Seriously? Yes, seriously.
Worse, instead of making sex education more widely available to cut down on teen pregnancy, Congress recently increased funding (using your hard-earned tax dollars) for discredited abstinence-only programs to pander to their ill-informed, puritanical, cave-dwelling constituents.
Recently, on Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, John addressed the total failure of American Sex Education in a segment and it is chilling.
In short, if you were told anything at all about sex at school, you were probably lied to.
