Things boys are taught in Sexual Education: -Anatomy of…
Most of this rant is spot-on, but where the writer asks why girls are taught about contraception more than guys, it’s sheer pragmatism: unwanted teen pregnancy can mess girls up far more than it can mess guys up. Put another way, if you can only teach one group, you’d probably want to teach the group it’s a bigger deal to, right?
Now, does that make it right? No. It SHOULD be a big deal to everyone, regardless of gender. But for that one particular complaint, I don’t think it’s intended as the endorsement of the reigning “guys get carefree sex, women get saddled with micromanaging everything” climate. (Whether this divide in teaching actually reinforces that existing culture or not is something I’d love to see rigorous studies on. It certainly seems possible.)
