This book was terrifying. Sometimes I'm surprised by the crazy stuff that happens in this country. Sure, I knew abstinence-only education existed, but this book really shed the proper light on its harmful effects. It goes beyond the virginity movement and purity balls to religious and federal organizations creating negativity regarding women's sexual health and choices. They give half-truths, bold-faced lies, and incorrect statistics in order to keep our youth in the dark about safe, healthy sexual experiences. Being pure and returning to traditional gender roles drive these groups. Very, very dangerous.
This is a must-read for anyone concerned with the future of our country when it comes to our bodies and choices, laws and regulations regarding birth control and abortions, and comprehensive sex-education for our country's children to make informed decisions.
