Condoms and Kids – Should They Have Them?

Photo compliments of Paul-Keller at Flickr.

 

I was reading an article today discussing a schools decision to give condoms to kids at a Junior High School.  Many of the comments were polarized on both sides of the fence with some saying that kids will have sex anyways so you may as well provided them. Others  noted that by giving condoms to kids you were in fact saying that sex at that age is just fine.

There are so many implications to this issue that it bakes the ol' noodle.  Should kids be given free access to them?  Will they have sex more with more condoms available?  It that unconsitutional to force another persons belief of "kids are just going to have sex so hook em' up" onto another family

What irritates me out of this situation is not the polarized beliefs of "yes let them have them" and "oh heck no you better not.  Both of those approaches make perfect sense to me.  What bothered me were the middle grounders.  Those that said "yeah, I don't think my kid should be having sex but...well, they're going to do it anyway so why not give them responsibility.

I have spent many hours studying the human sexual drive.  It fascinates me to no end and I love the physical, emotional, and mental constituencies of it.  It is such a simply-complex thing that brings...well...some intense pleasure.

But my major irritaiton occurs when people push this mentality that "a kid cannot say no to their sexual drives." If that was the case then there would be no legitimate Monks.  And yes, you can go see the research.  Most Monks do not castrate themselves.  And yet people keep pushing this idea that teens are incapable of saying no to sexual intercourse.

Serisously, what a convenient problem to have.  Wish I could say "man, I just can't help but overeat and be lethargic.  It's just my biology."  Every addict would love this!   But it is also not reality.  The reality is that kids can in fact choose not to but well-intended parents are often making it harder for them.
