of one of my friends used to be a social worker
. She (the mother) once interviewe
d a woman with four children who was convinced women got pregnant
by eating peanut
s. 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.
