I was reading this article, and while it announces an awesome vaccine against cervical cancer, this statement just blows the mind: "The median age at which girls first have sex in the United States is 15." Let’s review the definition of median – it is the middle value where there are equal numbers above and below it. Think about that. There is an equal number of girls below fifteen as there are above fifteen that are sexually active. God forbid we teach any form of abstinence. We might prevent our 8 year olds from having sex.
