goldfishandumbrella said: I don't know if they are common in America, but I recently looked up a few chastity talks on YouTube and they are generally awful. I had no idea. One of the most popular talks is done by Jason Evert, active in the ''pro-life'' movement, who said he loved ''gender stereotypes'', that ''women should act like ladies to be treated like them'', who reinforces the value of virginity and shames promiscuous behaviour. I feel bad for Americans that this stuff is happening in schools.
This is why organizations like Planned Parenthood and Scarleteen are so VITALLY important. Because abstinence-only education only leads to young people having sex without the knowledge and tools to ensure that it is safe, healthy, and responsible. We need to abolish abstinence-only education funding from public schools. It is a travesty that young, impressionable students are subject to that dangerous, misogynistic garbage.
