Quickie: The NZ Herald hates sex education

Teenagers are being let down by sex education that doesn’t tell them it’s best to wait until you’re an adult and have one sexual partner for life, a visiting physician says.
No, our education doesn’t teach that, nor bloody well should it. Jesus.
In other news, anyone want to make a guess at which conservative, “values” organisation is having its conference? And is utilising what appears to be its free quota of advertising in the New Zealand Herald?
[Update: Previous writings on the Herald trying to whip up moral panic over sex education can be found from here. I'd seek out all the articles, but I need a drink now. Feel free to add what you think sex education should teach into the comments.)
[Update #2: The delightful Dr will be on CloseUp tonight. Watch!]
[update #3: our Coley has decided that Dr Grossman is her new best friend, and has found some of her columns. This one is a particular doozy. What girls want is an obsessive, controlling, creepy vampire to love them. Not careers or adequate healthcare or basic respect, but to avoid sexual behavior until a dude who will “protect” them comes along.
