California adopts proper sex education  

Props to California, who adopted new health education standards that allow students to properly learn about STDs, birth control, rape/sexual assault, and how to use condoms, as well as other important information pertaining to drugs, alcohol, nutrition, exercise, and environmental health. Abstinence-only education has been banned - an important step to allow teenagers to receive the sex education they need and deserve.

Conservative organizations are upset over the new policy, thinking that it is providing too much information too soon. I'm not sure what world they are living in - but in the one that I'm inhabiting, I see kids having sex younger and younger, and not having a clue as to what they're doing. For organizations that are so concerned with "protecting the children," they seem to be failing miserably. Because comprehensive sex education is necessary to protect the children.

The Campaign for Children and Families is a major Conservative organization that opposes the new health education standards in California. You can visit their website to learn more about them, as well as send them a message to explain why sex education must be made accessible to young teens.
