Drinking Bleach Will Prevent HIV (according to Florida teens)

Teens in Florida believe that "drinking a cap of bleach will prevent HIV and a shot of Mountain Dew will stop pregnancy." Most experts and school officials blame the abstinence-only sex education that the teens receive.

Seems like the adults are starting to wise up a little bit. If you don't teach your kids how things work they're going to learn it from their dumbass friends. And their dumbass friends probably believe that eating poprocks and drinking coke will make them explode, is that really who you want your kid learning about sex from?

I can't believe that such an important topic with such wide-reaching consequences (emotional scars, STDs, teenage pregnancy) isn't a major topic of discussion. Parents have no problem telling their kids about drugs and their dangers so why is sex such a damn taboo?
