Quote Of The Day

In keeping with this blog's recent shift to all things trashy (genital warts, Pakistani cricketer/celebrity scandals), I give you this gem from Bristol Palin:
"If girls realized the consequences of sex, nobody would be having sex," says Bristol, sitting at her parents' lakeside patio table. "Trust me. Nobody."


Anyway, before you start questioning why I'm reading People magazine, please understand that I got to it from a link on this perfectly respectable NYT column on the Britol-Meghan McCain catfight-that's-not-actually-a-catfight. So there.

Bristol Palin is as vacuous as her mother. I think she is enjoying her 15 minutes of fame a little too much. Bristol, I do realize the consequences. Don’t promote abstinence, promote protection. Seriously, I do feel sorry for you

Bristol Palin makes me incredibly angry. I am appalled that we must listen to the poster-child of abstinence education's failure preach and promote abstinence. Someone needs to step up and call it like it is. I worked for two years educating teens about sexual health and related topics and this issue is close to my heart. We were often flying under the radar because we were at public high schools where such education is illegal. And it's the actions of the religious right, including the Palins', which have created this atmosphere of secrecy for something that needs to be an open conversation. Why aren't organisations like Planned Parenthood taking advantage of the opportunity to emphasize how we are failing children in America by not educating them?
