Hater here. To hell with this armpit. Been trying as hard as I can for years (since I'm stuck here for life) and I hate this place.
Glad it makes other people happy, though.
It would also be wise to remember that in years gone by, 16/17/18 year olds would be getting married and having babies. Now with longer lifespans, adolescence lasts longer but the hormones are still there. Nobody wants to see us go back to the days of marrying at 15 and dying at 35, of course. That means that people have to accept that teenagers always have had and always will have sex and rather than taking an emotional or moral stance . . . there needs to be a rational one that seeks a good outcome. Obviously abstinence-only education does not work. It does not, and that's been proven. It's a complete rip-off for taxpayers to continue pouring money into abstinence education when the money could be spent on programs that are actually proven to prevent teen pregnancy.
