Rather then teaching them to say no we should be teaching good technique .

It takes so long for some young people to come up to speed why not train them right from the start?

Actually, telling teens to just say no to sex works quite well in the majority of cases - IF the people doing the teaching actually believe what they are saying and aren't rolling their eyes when they say it. The best approach is to encourage abstinence while also giving important information about contraceptives, pregnancy and STDs.

Of course, the irony of the left-of-Lenin Daily Kos singling out Republicans for spending money on wasteful government programs should not be lost on anybody with two brain cells to rub together. But then again that's two too many to be a DailyKos reader.

I didn't say anything about marriage. But I would give the same message regardless of sexual orientation: wait until you are in a relationship with someone and you are both mature enough to handle the consequences of sexual activity. More specifically, if you are still living at home with mommy and daddy, you're not ready.
