Not entirely true for Texas. Some districts do in fact teach safe sex and I have many friends, both as students and teachers, who have discussed this. Whether people choose to heed the advice it or not is one thing.

Yep! My sister and I went to high school/middle school in two different cities in Texas (El Paso and Fort Worth) and we were both taught about safe sex. She had her first baby at 18 and I’m 19 w/no desire for babies. I wish our schools would have offered free birth control though.
