this is so great!!!

I've been collecting chick tracts and other biblical tracts for years.. I keep them in small photo albums so I can still pull them out and read them.  You just gave me an idea for a project I can use my doubles for! thank you!

Abstinence-only sex ed has lead to some scary, scary things being taught IN OUR SCHOOLS.  It is bothersome to say the least, but it's not a topic that gets much press.

I'm currently researching the problem of mother-to-child transmission of HIV in Africa for my undergraduate dissertation, but what I'm increasingly realising that preventing women getting the virus in the first place is the best thing we (in the West) can do.  When even a Catholic Bishop (albeit one on the Left) says that condoms should be used to stop HIV+ people from spreading the virus, times might be changing.

Sorry, that was a very long-winded way of saying "Thank you" for attempting to raise awareness about this mis-information-led propagander.

A quick Google search turned up this entry at Wikipedia.

Quote
Jack Thomas Chick (born April 13, 1924) of Chick Publications is a comic book artist and publisher. He is known for his controversial comic-style tracts (informally known as Chick Tracts) and larger comic books for the purpose of Christian evangelism from a fundamentalist point of view. Chick is an Independent Baptist, a premillennial dispensationalist, follower of the King James Only Movement, and an opponent of Roman Catholicism.

I was actually told by my sex ed teacher that aids could pass through condoms. I thought she was right for a really long time because no one told me otherwise... this really resonates with me.

hmmm, he/she might have been giving you PART of the information... whether it was accidental or not, who knows these days.  i believe LAMBSKIN condoms (for those allergic to latex), have tiny holes that are large enough for the HIV virus to pass through.

I think lambskin will actually rip easier, though i'm not positive on that. I know they aren't as safe for any sort of sexual contact. But she also told the class that it was a really bad idea to use a tampon until after sex, so.. i'm pretty sure she was actually catholic and trying to convince the class to follow her misguided beliefs. Nothing against catholics, i'm just saying it's not good to use your religious beliefs to teach a sex ed class in a public schools.

Actually, she doesn't have to be Catholic - the quotes in the image come from Jack Chick's tracts, and he freaking hates Catholics.  I believe he's gone so far as to blame them for the Holocaust.  Certain Christian groups hate anything to do with birth control, because sex is only supposed to be part of marriage, and the point of marriage is to have children, so the only time you would use birth control is if you're having sex out-of-wedlock.

And I can actually see that, for some women, you might want to wait until after your first intercourse to put a tampon in.  It sometimes takes that little extra...  something to really stretch out your hymen.  That probably isn't why she thought girls should wait, but...  there is an element of truth to it nevertheless.
