      This is untrue. If truth were not absolute I would say it is very untrue indeed. The reason I believe it is untrue is because people have been saying it since at least written records began and no doubt before.

      I once read a letter written by a father to his son who was away studying in which he exhorts his son not to drink too much beer and fall down drunk and to show respect to his teachers. How long ago was this written? It was an Ancient Egyptian papyrus. It is unlikely the father would have written the letter if he had not himself drunk too much beer and fallen down drunk and been a bit lippy to his teachers.

      Anyway the answer to teenage pregnancies is obvious - we need to encourage young men to have sex with each other.

          OHHHHHHHHHHHHH MY GOODNESS lol i hope that wasnt intended in the way it sounds it was :|

          tho there is a point - take the womb out of the equation there may well be no pregnancy but there will be neither increase nor decrease in the risk of STDs. (well at least no baby would be affected by it)

            The presence of the icon was a very strong pointer that my suggestion was not a serious one. I could say a lot, but before I say anything I think I need to know whether I am to take it that it is implicit in your comment that males of any age should not have sex with each other (a) because of the risk of HIV/AIDS or (b) anyway.

              And what do we encourage the young girls to do ?
              Munch carpets ?

                      Quite. And it's sad, frustrated middle-aged men like you who obsess about it.

                        When does middle aged begin, and when does it end ?
                        I don't believe a few comments qualifies as "obsess" does it ?

                          No, but you made the "carpet munch" comment, Lawcruncher attempted to divert the discussion into a rhetorical cul-de-sac, but you then tried to revive the topic. Not necessarily evidence of obsesssion, but you did seem uncommonly keen to talk/think about it.

                            Simple. I do not want more people (of either gender) to die of ignorance. You don't either, I guess. 'Diversity' is of no use to the dead. Why then encourage practices known to involve substantially-increased risk?

                              It wasn't encouragement. It was a joke, as has already been explained. You chose not to see it as such.
