Last week I let my daughter watch the Lindsey Lohan movie Mean Girls.
First, my daughter asked why the girls looked in the mirror and said bad things about themselves. Then she asked what a “bee-yotch” was. Then she asked what a condom was. I told her.
“It something men put on their penises so that their ingredients won’t mix with a woman’s ingredients when they have sex, and they won’t get a baby.”
“Well then,” she said “what’s the point? If you’re not gonna have a baby why do it?”
My daughter may be innocent now, but she won’t stay that way. That’s why I think it’s important for NYC Public schools to have sex ed. If you do, too, click here to read the rest of this post on NYC Moms blog, and learn how you can help.
