Comment of the Day: Abstinence Ain't Working

We have some great commenters here on Hair Balls, and it's time we paid some damn attention to them.

So we'll be highlighting a Comment of the Day each morning, from the previous day's work. Maybe two comments, even.

This will all be determined by a highly rigorous scientific formula involving wit, clarity and whatever else we feel like at the moment.

We wrote about a UT study that said sex was a cure for teen delinquency (the proper kind of sex, that is, meaning a long-term relationship).

One reader made the case against sex ed that concentrates solely on abstinence.

Common sense wrote:

Of course, girls become pregnant everytime they have sex. There is no such thing as contraception, right?
