As a High School student I feel it necessary to elaborate on such a hot issue. I was planning on doing so for a while now, but I did not feel the urge to do so until a while ago when I read stunner’s thoughts on the whole situation. I feel it would be easier for me to expound on the situation seeing as I am one of those on the inside looking out.
So all the officials have been arguing whether or not they should issue condoms in schools, you want to know what I think… I think it doesn’t matter. Condoms are not the problem it’s the mentality of teens, that’s the real problem. Issuing condoms won’t change a darn thing, because the fact is they don’t want and will not use them.
Getting condoms isn’t a problem for teens, they cost what $120? I’ve spoken to a couple friends and the truth of the matter is they don’t want to use condoms. Why? because they claim know sex is alot better without it, and the feeling is mutual( Girl And Boy), they both prefer non-use of condoms. AIDS you say? They’ll laugh that off because they don’t care about that either, they have the Que Sera, Sera mentality. They’ve made up their mind about the outcome of the non use of condoms. Whether it be pregnancy, AIDS or any other consequence.
“Maybe we need to go back to the drawing board: remove the sexual stimulants in our entertainment and advertisements, instill good moral values in our children by being better parents, talk with our children about sex, closely monitor our children, implement stronger penalties for adults who take advantage of the youths, and of course teach them about safe sex.” by Stunner
I laughed at that paragraph when I read it, I mean come on who are you kidding? That will never happen or if it does happen it will never work. Why you ask? Because sexual content will always be available; you can never prevent them (teens) from seeing it
