Abstinence-Only is Bad? Duh.

Anyone that is just now realizing that the abstinence-only education programs promoted by the Bush administration's are anti-gay has not been paying attention. That is why I was a little surprised by the irony that a website called Think Progress is just now realizing this. Perhaps a little less writing and a little more thinking would do these little webians some good.

Abstinence-only education has always been another name for anti-gay education. Sex-until marriage programs not only don't work, but if they did they would only work in a heterosexual-only society. That is, until gays can marry. Which, we all know is about as likely to happen soon as people buying a tape of Barney Frank having sex.

Who knew we still had to make this point. Wake up folks. Must be a slow news day.
