13. Oooh, the nostalgia. 5th or 6th grade, & Mom had to sign a consent slip...

It was the late 1950s for me and I already knew the basics, thanks to good old Mom, but it was interesting for a developing girl. I sure hope that something similar is still being shown to girls today.

In college I had a friend who was a decade older than I and she had a horror story I just couldn't believe. Her mother had told her NOTHING. She got married at 17 and was on her third pregnancy when she broke down in the doctor's office and sobbed that she didn't know how or why she kept getting pregnant one right after the other. By the time I met her she had those babes in elementary school and was class valedictorian at the college.

Lest anyone think there's no one left who doesn't understand basic human biology, I present to you the Congress of the United States of America. Oy. Maybe they should all have to see a movie about how babies are made before they are sworn in.
