Prego, or Ragu?

Caroline says: Just as we suspected: http://www.time.com/time/world/article/0,8599,1815845,00.html?cnn=yes

Ryan says: That Time article doesn't suprise me in the least, although it's still downright depressing.

Caroline says: I know.

Ryan says: You know what gets me about that Time article?

Caroline says: Which part

Ryan says: It ends with the school talking about providing students with contraceptives. . . when quite obviously the students in question wanted nothing to do with contraceptives.

Caroline says: Well, yeah. I wondered about the logic behind that "solution," too.

Caroline says: The girls high-fived, for jebus' sake.

Ryan says: When kids are giving high fives for getting pregnant, somehow I don't think condoms are the solution.

Ryan says: Call me crazy.

Caroline says: Cah-raaaaazy

Ryan says: I hesitate to blame movies like Juno an Knocked Up, but there's definitely something. . . societal. . . about the growing "popularity" of teen pregnancy.

Caroline says: I don't think Juno and Knocked Up glamorized pregnancy for unwed moms. Maybe they didn't see the same movies I did.

Ryan says: Maybe today's teens are turned on by Seth Rogan?

Caroline says: Well, they did opt for a 24 yo homeless dude to impregnate them ... Seth Rogan probably looks good to them.

Ryan says: A 24-year-old homeless man could mean something different to us.

Ryan says: I was, technically, homeless when I was 24.

Caroline says: Man, you really missed out on all the sex with high school girls, then.

Caroline says: Or maybe I don't know the whole story.

Ryan says: I know, right?!

Ryan says: I think that's what depresses me most.

Ryan says: All that sweet teen ass I missed out on.

Caroline says: I had a feeling we'd get here eventually. Let it out.

Ryan says: LOL!

No mention of Jamie Lynn "Poster Child for Teen Pregnancy" Spears? I have a hard time believing she's not helping to propel this really stupid trend.
