While I realize sex education is awkward for young people, making them wait until 15 or 16 years of age is very bad for their development

im terribly sorry but there might be a slight confusion ... you see con means that i am against it being banned and your comment seemed to be con...

but otherwise:
sex education shouldnt be banned in middle schools and for a lot of reasons, one of them being sexual awareness. If we can start making people aware at the appropriate age of contraception, STD's and so on, the risk of teenage pregnancy and ofcourse the spreading of STD's would be reduced by quite a big amount, due to the knowledge of the different ways of protecting against them. But some sort of minimum age must definitely be in place but stil the sooner the better.

Since sex education isn't only just plain old sex, I would like to stress the importance of the different types of sexual orientations, such as bisexual, homosexual and so on. This alone would make people understand that this is not something bad and hopefully in the future, the homophobic percentege would decrease.

sorry for the confusion, we're on the same page, Republicans would love to ban it so that they can tell their children it's not ok to be LGBT, etc

I believe in public education so everyone is taught a fair and balanced and most importantly FACT based information
