advocate for better sex education. Zhao et al. demonstrate how young people engage in risky sexual behaviors which can result in negative consequences, for example. teen pregnancy and STDs and HIV infections. Tolman, investigating young women, argues that young women are being silenced in terms of their own bodies and their desires, instead of being educated about their bodies.
John Oliver discusses in his video that there are no standards across states/districts/schools in terms of sex education. Keeping John Olivers’ arguments in mind, please discuss these two questions.
What should NOT be included in sex education? What should be left to parents?
Should schools promote “abstinence only?” Why or why not?
