Read the statistics, he IS entirely inaccurate.

So I wouldn’t say he’s entirely inaccurate and that was a school that was not teaching abstinence only, might I add.

I only mentioned it because I know our dad has on several occasions claimed that teen pregnancy is a huge problem based upon his experiences teaching, and seems to think I am an ignoramus for suggesting otherwise. Though I think that probably has more to do with the general problem that any parent has in admitting their child may know more about something than they do.

If anything mom and dad avoid the topic, as it might lead to the uncomfortable topic of my preferences…
