REALLY. Got any statistics to back up your rather lame assertion? Get back to me when you find some, and NOT some biased "statistics" from some faith-based site.
Sorry, G (not really), I'm just not buying your "it's the girls pressuring the guys into having sex" line. And you will NEVER convince me that teen pregnancy and teen motherhood is a good thing for girls, especially those who have had drug and alcohol problems as teenagers. As far as I'M concerned, there's NOTHING good about getting pregnant and having a baby as a teenager. All it does is rob girls of good education and good employment, leaving them dependent, on either their parents or the government, for support.
The way I see it, teen sex is a BAD IDEA, and a teen girl is much better off by DUMPING any guy who pressures her to have sex. Guys who pressure girls for sex aren't worth keeping around as boyfriends.
OOh Ocean...you are so clueless as to hos things have changed over the years. While boys have always pressured girls to have sex, today the girls are just as bad. When i wss a teen, my gf had a huge crush on my brother. She propositioned him for years. My brother, although attracted to her and tempted, was turned off by her aggressive behaviour. I dated a guy for a short time in HS whk didn't have sex with anyone. We got along great. He was very handsome and i recall many girls from his school chasing him. When we broke up, a girl who was very popular got him to date her. She had her eye on him and told me flat out that he'd be hers. They dated and told me that she was going to demand sex from him. She got it.

For years my sons have been telling me how crazy girls are today. They are super aggressive and push hard for sex. My sons sre turned off by it. Its like girls act like the guys once did-looking for a quick bootie call. Its very hard for my sons to stay sex free when girls throw themselves at guys.

SOMETHING is definately wrong. I tell them that the young are desperately searching for ANY attention..ANY form of love or to be wanted. They can't judge them. But it is difficult to stay...um..sex free today.
I worked i a HS and was very close to the students. Shockingly, i found girls to be very over sexed. I had many conversations with my own to see the similarity in their peers. One pretty 10th grader used to tell me that she was horny and wanted to score. I became a therapist instead of staff with these kids. I was in my early 30s at the time so they felt free to talk to me. They didnt see that i was a mother of older kids until my kids visited me there. I learned MUCH there as to the minds and party scenes from these kids and my kids new it. They knew that i knew MUCH. Everywhere we went i ran into those kids while with my own. The kids would hug me, jump on my back...fill me in on their lives and my kids thought it was strange and funny.

Needless to say,we have a real problem in society today. Kids are exposed to sex on tv...movies....parents bad examples of hooking up with gf/bf ..... Giving BC to them isnt the answer. Addressing the core problem is. Parents need to be better examples. MANY are absent from the home(a deep problem that many kids shared with me...which left them feeling abandoned and misguided).

Are the girls being "used" by the boys, as you usually claim, OR are they "just as bad"?

I think tbat it's sad that soiety has given up on our youth. They have NO faith in the concept of self control. We live in a feel good at all costs and then when the consequences hit, they search for a magic pill to take it away.

Think about it. We over eat, gain weight and then pay hundreds (while endangering our lives) to take the fat away or to staple or remove our bellies.

We drink in excess and then destroy our lives and others around us..even drinking and driving -killing innocent people. The we blame our genes for it.

We over spend our money that we dont have and then think that we deserve bail outs.Getting in even mlre debt.

We get our jollies out sexually then kill our babies because it's inconvenient to mother them.

Contraception is a magic potion to allow hs to be sexually free crom any responsibility, commitment and consequnence of self seeking sexual pleasure. Kids should be guided and taught morls. They arent and so society has given up on them. Handing them tools to be able to participate in bad and negative behaviour is sinful.

HERE IS SOMETHING
interesting

An independent charity monitor

http://www.charitynavigator.org/index.cfm...

My fave h as a four star rating ..meaning they use very little money for administration and fund raising

LOOK UP YOUR FAVE ..You can type it in up top or they have an A Z directory.

This site is in no way Christian ..their faves seem to be secular ..

But SAMARITANSPURSE.org . offering is at every disaster site ..has their highest rating .

They were in DARFUR BEFORE any one heard of it .

Their being targeted might be explained by this article

FOO posted ..

It's really interesting especially the second part which surprised me but shouldn't have

http://www.aish.com/ci/s/52292422.html...

MINE got targeted by I R S along with other Christian and Pro ISRAEL orgs.

Both. Come on Grandma...wake up.

It goes both ways. Boys are using girls and girls are using boys. It's not an intentional thing IMO. Like I said,these kids are searching for love, attention and acceptance from anyone..at any cost.

Teens are notorious for getting into risky situation due to peer pressure to "fit in". But this today is wayyyy beyond it.

If parents wouldn't. Let 15 yo's date, and watch their children, then they wouldn't. Face sex or pregnancy.
I can give you plenty stats on what's. Happened. To the family unit since the 50's.
Plus wasn't. Trying. To say all girls pressure guys, but waaay more now than back then.
You should update. Yourself. On what teens are doing. You may be shocked.
Absolutely!

While we as humans with our sinful nature have much temptation on a daily basis, kids today are allowed accessnto overly sexual themed music tv movies and negative examples by parents. I am mot surprised in the least that kids..younger and younger...are having sex or drinking/doing drugs. Kids today are dumped in daycares so that mom and dad can have "things". No bonding ...no one on ones. Then kids are overlg stimulated with sports and after school activities which again take away one on one with their parents. It's glorified babysitting.

Interestingly, parents sre the afraid to talk sbout God,morals or sex. Dump responsibly on teachers and society. When all else fails...hand contraception to them and then insist/justify abortion when lregnancy naturally happens. Acting like "something went wrong" ehen they get pregnant. I just love it when the girl who gets pregnant is the "bad girl" or the "problemed child".

Sassy I think most of the parents on here have guided their children well..

Given that ...other kids are not so fortunate .
twenty some years ago ..the biggest party school here was the Catholic high in the more affluent part if town..
The public schools nit far behind

The others had no real reputation ..but who knows

Now the CATH kids certainly knew NOT to do it.

I didn't know much at all but Yes I knew I was supposed to wait til marriage .

When the itch hits these kids ..they give in..And I agree it's worse today .

And in ways even more dangerous

IT WOULD BE IDEAL IF NO TEENS HAD SEX ..FOR MANY REASONS ..But fir goodness sake ..in this era they don't even do it for s o called love ..they just hook up

I know you think contraception is a bad thing .

But IMO it's much better than ABORTION..

And safe sex ..while it as sure as NO SEX..can certainly help in that I t s spreads less disease .

Naturally it would seem to be expected that an opportunity to hold or see your baby would cause more grief. My mom had miscarriages. Her first child was miscarried early on. It devastated her. The one that she had a harder time was was the one whom she delivered because she "saw" him/her laying on the bed next to her. She starred in shock until my Dad came in a removed it. The other two she didn't see. All were hard for her but visually seeing that child stuck in her mind. Your mom saw and held her baby alive.It would be expectedly tragic vs ones thst she didnt do that to.

"most parents here have guided their children well"

They have taught their children that they can kill their unwanted children via abortion if that is what they choose.

Some have even had theirs killed via abortion.

Others like foo proudly escort the baby to their deaths by escorting vulnerable women to clinics.

Rose...WTF are you talking about? You call them "lucky" to have parents like that?.

What????? Their kids "have done just fine" in your opinion??? Being taught that killing your own child is a choice makes them "fine" in your opinion? Knowing their mom killed their unwanted sibling or wouldve killed them hsd they not been wanted makes them "fine" in hour opinion?

In comparison to who?

Don't. You think, if abortion was not legal, that most young girls and guys would think twice before having sex?
In this day and age, even if abortion was outlawed, teens would still be able to find a person to help them have an abortion, just like pot is illegal in most places, no one I. Know that smokes it has any problems getting it. After all these years of it being legal, then it wouldn't. Go back to clothes hangers.
J say since so many pregnancies don't. Make it all the way, why not either leave it in Gods hands, or the hands of natural selection?
I don't. Think 15-16 yo girls should be having babies, but I. Also don't. Think they should be living a lifestyle that lead to them becomming pregnant.
"No doubt they would, but why are they even given a choice?"

Why shouldn't they be given a choice?

"Don't. You think, if abortion was not legal, that most young girls and guys would think twice before having sex?"

No. Young girls and guys have that "it won't happen to me" or the "I'm careful" mentality. Why do you think back in the past there were Homes for Unwed Mothers (just as an example).

"I don't. Think 15-16 yo girls should be having babies, but I. Also don't. Think they should be living a lifestyle that lead to them becoming pregnant."

Yes, I can agree. Though I have no religious convictions I personally feel sex belongs with committed relationships...but many young people think they are deeply in love, and are fighting raging hormones. And not everyone is going to agree with my opinion about sex and committed relationships. That's how I have lived my life, others choose differently.

Oh cut the hysteria and the drama. On a daily basis you interact with many women who are probably pro-choice, and some of them may have even had an abortion, yet these women out in the world have probably said "hello", held a door for you, commented on the nice weather, smiled and said "thank you" while handing you your change or your coffee, etc. Probably many women you've crossed paths with because they are volunteering or doing nice things are also PC. And you've probably thought these strangers were nice, and so if you were to suddenly become aware they are PC you would then think they are sick twisted monsters? What exactly does that make you Miss Self-Righteous Bible Girl?

We do have a sin nature, and satan plus our own flesh wants to twist what God wanted for good.

I'm. Just a man, and when I. Was 10 yo I was introduced to a playboy and hustler mag. I would seek out these things as time went by. Yet I would really have to go out of my way to find mags, and videos was very rare to come by, and even when I got to watch an x rated movie, it was dark and hard to see much. Now, as you know, a 10 yo has access to the most unGodly junk there is. Young men have a weakness, and this is why the porn industry rakes in more money the all sports combined. When I was young, it seemed the same 20 women "WOMEN " would be in all the movies, where as today, there little 18 yo girls by the thousands if not millions in this garbage. I've. Even had very blunt conversations with my nefews about this. They truly thought all girls loved anal sex, becouse of the movies they watched. I told them most girls hate that, and are only acting like they like it, becouse the creep that pays them wants them to act that way. I feel sorry for any involved in porn, but this is one of the biggest reason we have sooo many having sex early, and my personal opinion to why abortion is legal. I'm. Sure many porn stars use these services.:(
