That's because IT'S NOT WORKING

“We mainly did it because of our pregnancy rate,” said Whitney Self, lead teacher for health and physical education at the Hays Consolidated Independent School District. “We don’t think abstinence-only is working.”

Texas ranks #3 in teen pregnancies, and is #1 in repeat teen pregnancies (they're #1!!!). And Texas spends more on abstinence-only sex education than any other state.

Dear Texas: it's not working.

Abstinence-only sex education is a huge mother-fucking fail.

Texas officials are looking at something called "abstinence-plus" which attempts to stress abstinence but also teach birth control.

The story is here.

Groan.

Fuck.

Where is my blood pressure medication?
