Color removed cause it hurt my eyes. Sorry.

Believe me when I say that from my school (I cannot say about other schools) there is more than enough concern about pregnancies. My best friend almost broke up with his girlfriend because she wouldn't go on the pill or do anything on her side, and he and I both had a rule: each partner does something. And I know that's a prevalent attitude, that the scariest thought in the guy's locker room was that your girlfriend gets pregnant... with your kid. It could have just been my school, but I doubt guys in other schools aren't worried about it.
And as for the freeness of the condoms, if they have to go to the school nurse or info stands, why not turn the stands into a vending machine and ask for a fee from the nurse?
And as for the pill being taken from the school nurse... the pill is already administered by phone call with a nurse for people in the Kaiser plan. Believe me, I know, my GF had an easy as hell time getting the pill. She got the pill before having a doctor there! But that being said, it's very important that the pill (or anything else, for that matter) go straight on the patient history, something not kept on file with the school nurse. (Unlike condoms, pretty much everything a woman does for birth control is fiddling with internal mechanisms, and deliberately affect the way the body reacts. Pretty much the only exception that comes to mind is the diaphragm, one of the shoddiest and most unreliable forms of birth control ever).
Belive me, so many kids don't go and buy condoms just because they are too shy and then they have unprotected sex and consequences can occur, It's not that they don't care it is that they don't know,
To me, this isn't something that's solved by handing out free condoms. It's something where the impact on society is much lessened by free condoms. But imagine this:
The local store is broken into every night for a week, and all the cash is stolen. The next week, the shop keeper simply takes the cash out of the store and leaves it on a paper bag on the front stoop. Has the crime stopped? Yes. do people notice the crime at large? No. But is the problem still there? yes.
I'm not saying teenage sex is a problem, I'm saying the fact that teenagers are being irresponsible about sex is a problem. Handing out condoms hides most of this, but doesn't fix any of it. But if there was a way to instill responsibility in teenagers via some kind of pill there'd be no use for parents would there... a man can dream though, can't he?
And as for the ''Quickie'' theory, it dosen't really make sense because putting on a condom dosen't take that much time. And there are two options:
1)You are aware how important it is and you just always wear it.
2)Youre dumb and never wear one.
no one just sometimes wears a condom...
As for the quickie theory, I feel bad for most girls if they only have sex for 1-3 minute bursts. Honestly speaking that wouldn't be worth taking off my pants let alone a condom. But a very trusted doctor spoke to me regarding this and lead me to believe that a PROPER, FULL EDUCATION on SEX, not just "Dear god you could get PREGNANT! you could get AIDS and DIE! your PENIS COULD FALL OFF!", but proper "Keep in mind in relationships it's often viewed as a big step, so don't rush things." "It hurts sometimes for one or more partners." and the most important, "It's not a race."
And as for number 2, some people are stupid. Giving free condoms to stupid people won't change the fact that they're stupid
