If you think you have a good argument against sex education in schools please be my guest.
I believe sex education should be in schools because it will give teens a chance to learn before they have to learn from mistakes. I understand some may think that many are not mature enough. That's why teachers need to start teaching at a time when many become the age that they start having sex. Though they may not be able to make them not/stop having sex, they should teach them about safe sex, and way to make sure you stay away from pregnancy and STDs.

I think either we should have sex educaiton out of schools to giver everyone equal knowledge and chance to mate or not have it in or out of schools to make it fair on everyone by an equal handicap. Basic rules of fairness.

But honestly how many parents sit there and have "the talk" like they use to. Kids are having sex at a younger age. They should learn before they make mistakes. If it wasn't in school, more teens would probably be pregnant or infected with and STD. And learning about it would be on the parents part, but for some kids parents aren't around to tell them right and wrong.

But by having sex education in schools you are giving an unfair mating advantage to those have it since they're less likely to retract STD and die before they get chance to reproduce again and/or raise a kid.

I guess I'm a little confused with what you are saying. But by having sex education in school, doesn't mean they are stopping teens from having sex, but yet they will also teach them about how to be safe about it, if they choose to have sex. Doesn't make it unfair in anyway?
