it was reported that federally funded abstinence-only sex-ed programs are full of inaccuracies. those programs, backed by the Bush adminnistration and the Republican congress, carried misinformation, developed in part by evangelical Christian sources and ignoring scientific evidence and fact.
Some of the gems taught in these curricula as revealed by The Waxman Report include:
-A 43-day old fetus is a "thinking person." (can't see how this can be taught as fact)
-Half of the gay, male teenagers in the U.S. have tested positive for the AIDS virus. (absolutely false)
-HIV can be spread through exposure to sweat and tears. (completely untrue)
-Condoms fail to prevent HIV transmission as often as 31 percent of the time in heterosexual intercourse. (actually less than 3%)
-Taught as scientic fact is the opinion that "Women gauge their happiness and judge their success on their relationships. Men's happiness and success hinge on their accomplishments." (This sexist garbage is actually written in a sex-ed textbook....)
-Women who have an abortion "are more prone to suicide" and that as many as 10 percent of them become sterile. This contradicts the 2001 edition of a standard obstetrics textbook that says fertility is not affected by elective abortion.
-Touching another persons genitals can result in pregnancy (there is an extremely slim chance, but the risk is exaggerated and the mechanics are not discussed. It is taught as if you get pregnant by just touching.)
-Some course materials present as scientific fact notions about a man's need for "admiration" and "sexual fulfillment" compared with a woman's need for "financial support." (Ugh.)
-One textbook tells the story of a knight who married a village maiden instead of the princess because the princess offered so many tips on slaying the local dragon. "Moral of the story," notes the popular text: "Occasional suggestions and assistance may be alright, but too much of it will lessen a man's confidence or even turn him away from his princess." (This is just beyond the pale...)
but of course there were also counterarguments (all cf. http://politics.abovetopsecret.com/thread103441/pg#pid1070359).
but if those programs are indeed inaccurate, they are in the danger of misleading kids into unsafe sex. in any case, this Zhao probably has read about the above news but tended to mis-present the information to his audience.
