The evil filth of abstinence-only sex ed | Letters
According to kidnapping survivor Elizabeth Smart, her abstinence-only education was a major factor in that some human trafficking victims don’t run away because they feel worthless after being raped, particularly if they have been raised in conservative cultures that push abstinence-only education and emphasize sexual purity.
Smart said she “felt so dirty and so filthy” after she was raped by her captor, and she understands why someone wouldn’t run “because of that alone.”
That is pure and simple and evil abuse of young women, teaching them crap like that.
