I'm with you, Cosyn. Unfortunately, the opposition still believes--as
Viscount Galen put it--that giving out condoms "subsidizes" sex. They
figure a free condom is approval. Of course, these are the same folk,
generally, who believe sex education will cause sex.
Gross ignorance? Ehhh, maybe naivete.
The really scary part, for me, is the frequently unspoken subtext of this
argument: quite a few of these folks believe anyone who engages in
premarital sex--even one of their own children--somehow *deserves* the
negative consequences. For people of this mindset, a condom eliminates
the negative consequences.
