I wrote a whole post for tonight on some head-scratching moral analysing of questionable situations, then realised I’d been really boring.
So here’s another thing. I liked this quote from Dr Marty Klein in a recent post on abstinence-only education:
We know how we would describe a parent who’s uncomfortable about his own teeth, and therefore refuses to teach his kids about brushing, flossing, and soda. Imagine that this parent also prevents his kids from learning anything about oral hygiene, and forbids them from going to the dentist.
We’d call this parent neglectful. I’d add irresponsible and unforgiveable. And if this parent got in the way of my kid learning about toothpaste, I’d say he’s dangerous. That perfectly describes adults who desperately need to live in a world without teen sexuality – and selfishly fantasize that they can.
