Sex-Ed Class Shames Students Into Abstinence

There is no easy way to talk about the the birds and bees, especially when abstinence becomes a topic. A school in Texas, however, has taken it to extremes by shaming students into staying virgins. Katie Gustainis Vela tweeted the school's sex-ed worksheets, which equated virgins to a fresh piece of gum.

Not exactly the confidence boost they need.
