7. SEXUAL EDUCATION DOES NOT PROMOTE SEX.

Yes, educating the masses on how to have safe, protected sex is such a bad thing. We need sexual education to teach our younger generations that no, washing your vagina out with soda will not prevent pregnancy. Sexual education provides young people with the tools and information they need to practice safe sex. What’s so dangerous about that?

13. SODA AFTER SEX DOES NOT PREVENT PREGNANCY.

What is wrong with you if you think this is true? Allegedly, if you washed out your vagina after unprotected sex with soda, the soda killed the sperm and therefore prevented an unwanted pregnancy. I don’t know, maybe you should just, you know, use a condom?

14. RAINBOW PARTIES WERE DEFINITELY NOT A THING.

Because why not give parents of middle schoolers something else to panic about? It was reported that teenage girls were running around wearing different colors of lipstick and teenage guys were running around with colorful penises. I’m horrified that any of you thought that was true.
