Abstinence-only education is now illegal in Illinois. A bill passed two days ago by the state senate will require that schools with sex education classes include units on birth control. Schools can opt out of sex education altogether if they so desire (as they can now), and they’ll still have to teach that abstinence is the only absolute, surefire way to prevent pregnancy and STIs, but now they’ll have to provide information on contraceptives as well. The governor is expected to sign the bill. source

And therein lies the important part. I’m an ethnocultural Jew and a spiritual agnostic (though I do practice Judaism because I enjoy the ritual and tradition and I think that the combined wisdom of almost 6,000 years of Judaism offers some pretty rad ideas to rely on). People wish me a Merry Christmas and a Happy Easter every year. And ya know what? I don’t scream at them. I don’t get up in arms. I smile and return the sentiment. Ya know why? Because their belief in no way cheapens mine, and their assumption, while incorrect, isn’t somehow totally unwarranted. Obviously, this situation is a little bit different than those, but at the end of the day, if you get your panties in a twist over that sort of shit or try to shout people down/make them feel like assholes/make them feel stupid because they believe differently than you, there’s only one person who looks like a stupid asshole.
