Condom Issue This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

By
   To the various humans who think that condom distribution in high schools promotes sexual promiscuity, I cite the following parallels.

1. Would a student engage in a gun fight just because s/he was wearing a bullet-proof vest?

2. Would a student jump out of an airplane just because s/he had a parachute?

3. Would a student bungee-jump just because there was a protective mat on the ground?

4. Would a student break the law just because s/he knew a good lawyer (hey, anything's possible?)

The next time you fight condom distribution in high schools, put this thought in your mind: If you knew someone who was going to jump out of a plane and there was nothing you could do about it, wouldn't you rather s/he wear a parachute? n
