Teach our children realistic sexual health education. Teaching abstinence only is not a realistic goal in today's world. Sexual health is extremely important and normal. Abstinence only wants us to be ashamed of having sex when it is a completely normal human activity. Teens are going to have sex whether we want them not to. So why not teach them how to be safe? If you don't want to teach LGBTQ teens safe practices for them give them resources. And common Utah its the 2021 teach LGBTQs sexual health for their sexual orientation, it is extremely important so they don't go seeking resources from unreliable sources such as porn. Utah's sexual education shouldn't just be based off of cis gendered individuals that is not today's world! Let's teach our children they should not be ashamed of their bodys! Where are they going to get reliable information the internet, their friends, or any other unreliable source? Utah is 12th in teen pregnancy rates as of 2019. Our high school students sit through a presentation on porn kills love about porn addiction. Why not start with why are teens watching porn? Is it because they don't have resources on sex so they need to go somewhere to find it? Now sex education doesn't just start in schools in should start in the home. But we can't change how or what people want to talk about in their house but we can change what we teach in schools! Credit for photo: Say it with a condom
