Daaaaamn, I missed more than I thought I had. Damn work!
Okay, let's see if I can comment on some of that stuff.
Marie, I'm very impressed with your knowledge of contraception!
No, seriously, I am. I'm the only virgin out of my main group of friends, but I'm the one they come to birth control info. I mean, honestly, if you're going to be banging people, take the time to educate and protect yourself. There's not a lick of common sense between all of them. *sigh*
Sex ed sucks at my school, too. We really don't have any. The only stuff we learn is what I can be fit into a 2 week chapter in our Health class. Really in-depth learning there, let me tell ya.
Everything I know about sex and birth control (which is a lot, not to toot my own horn
) I learned from my mom.
Rapists are the scum of the earth.
And yeah, what is the deal with like 10 year olds getting pregnant? Shoot, when I was 10, I was like, "Sex what?" I knew what it was, of course, but I was still SO into my "boys are gross!" stage that I didn't care. It struck me as a very silly sort of thing to want to do with another person. Besides that, I wasn't even physically capable of getting pregnant when I was 10. What is up girls that age and younger already having their periods? But I digress.
When I was 13 in the 7th grade, a 14 year old girl in the 8th grade got knocked up by this guy who was like 18. Now I don't know about y'all, but I, for one, was not much to look at back then. Not that am I now, but you know what I mean. I'm a lot more, shall we say, physically mature, then I was back then. What do older guys see in girls that young?? They must be like pedophiles or something. Anyway, the record low in my town of the 14 year old being pregnant has been broken by a 12 year old earlier this year.
All right, I don't remember anything else I wanted to say. I'm pissed I missed this conversation.
