The mother of one of my friends used to be a social worker in Texas. She (the mother) once interviewed a woman with four children who was convinced women got pregnant by eating peanuts. She'd eaten peanuts four times, she had four kids. Logic, yes? The woman was not mentally ill. I hesitate to guess at her IQ, though she was evidently able to take care of her four kids (more or less).

Anyone who thinks that sex education in public schools is unnecessary or improper should shadow a social worker or a women's clinic nurse for a day. Ignorance ain't bliss.
