You know, I firmly believe that no matter what you do, teenagers are going to figure out sex. I mean, it's a pretty fucking strong biological urge, and it's quite hard to fight. Neanderthal boys didn't have their parents trying to teach them about "the birds and the bees" at an awkward age. They just did it. It's perfectly natural, and just plain hard to stop.
Those are some of the proposed questions on a survey to be given to thousands of Fairfax County students this spring, along with more than 100 other questions on drug use, suicide, weight loss and family relationships.
But some members of the county Board of Supervisors, which is paying for the survey, want to drop the section on sex, saying it could give teenagers ideas. Others want to rephrase those questions so they don't suggest that such behavior is okay.
Although maybe I'm just giving the kids of today too much credit?
