How ironic

The 9 o'clock news had a little editorial type bit on last night about teens and sexuality which took a positive slant on abstinence. They talked to a group of teens involved in True Love Waits as well as the founder of one of the areas abstinence-only education programs (who we know because they are the ones that do the program for the Middle School in our district). The guy who did the piece has two teenagers himself which he admitted is what prompted him to do this report. The segment ended with a discussion of the influences of music, magazines, TV and films on how teens perceive their sexuality. The TV show he used to illustrate the "everybody's doing it" message? The O.C.

The newscast is on Fox.
