Quoting Viv, Ev & Gwen ♥:" <blockquote><b>Quoting xTJ:</b>" <blockquote><b>Quoting Viv, Ev & Gwen ... [snip!] ... long as our society raises girls from a young age to want to be mommies and boys from a young age to believe that's girl smurf."
I really do not think it's more girls than guys. They may want to be Mommies, but there are just as many dumbass guys that believe "Oh, pull out method works, it feels better" and they gt pregnant. You see little boys that want ass and romantacize girls "Oh girl, you know I'd never leave you, you are my number one" and then screw her in the back of his car and turn around to high five his buddies "Yeah I nailed that ass." Girls ARE naive in believing that guys will stay and help and love them, but thats the guys fault. It's not mainly the girls, whether or not we raise them to believe that the end result is mommyhood in their life. Even if we took away the glorification of being a Mommy and made it real... you would still have little boys swooning girls because he wants to tap that ass.
Girls need to be armed with their own condoms. They need to use the triple method that I learned in high school... I took a class that showed the REAL bullsmurf of society... we even watched Faces of Death and learned about REAL effects of drugs (I actually helped in that unit since I was working with DanceSafe, another great source for real drug info) and all sorts of stuff that we needed permission from our parents AND the principal to take the class. We learned about the triple method "Something for the boy, something for the girl, something for both." Meaning condom for boy, birth control for girl, and spermicide for both. You can change each up as needed but using that method its almost damn impossible to get pregnant. You teach them that its the responsibility of BOTH and then the couple together so no one can point fingers and say "Well you poked holes in the condom!" There are 2 other backups if that happens.
Also, if parents wouldnt flip their smurf when a teen says "I need birth control" it'd help. If I called my Mom and said "While you are at the store, can you get me condoms?" She would. I became pregnant while using protection and my Mom wasnt mad because she knew I was being safe. Parents dont need to freak out... that just leads to lack of protection and sneaking around!
