The failure to address and combat the sexualization of our children has nothing to do with being liberal or conservative.
It does have a lot to do with parenting that I do agree with.
What has been proven is that parents that address the issues of sex intelligently and realisticly have children that avoid this trap.
By that I mean that the inform their children of the risk and causes of teenage preganancy and inform their children of the use of birth control.
I know just as many girls that come from religous and conservative homes that are pregnant as those that come from permissive homes.
Parents who pull their head out of the sand usually prevent this from happening.
Open your eyes, db...liberalism and parental permissiveness go hand in hand. Failure to recognize that is burrying one's head in the sand.
And to say that as many teen pregnancies happen in religious and conservative homes as liberal homes is bull poop. Do they happen? Of course, but conservative/religious parents exercise much more control over their kids.
Having differing views is healthy and fun, but your failure to confront reality is perplexing considering your credentials...
