I had three potential topics for my argument paper just in case you turned my very first choice down. The argument topic that I decided to go with is that teaching pre-teens and teens sex education a positive thing and does not encourage teens to have sex. This topic interests me because growing up I have always heard opinions about this argument from many different kinds of people with many different views. After going through many sex education classes throughout middle and high school and reflecting on how these educational classes have influenced my friends and my own decisions throughout high school, I have formed an opinion on the topic myself and I think it is very valid. I personally feel that sex educations classes are a great thing to have in school and don’t influence teens and pre- teens to have sex at all! As you grow up and start to become a young adult, if teens really want to do something, it is very likely they will find a way to do it. I know many people who have gone through these classes with me and have never engaged in any sexual activity, and I also know many who have taken the class and based their decision to engage in these activities simply because it was their choice. It had nothing to do with the information they received in sex ed. It better to make sure that pre- teens and young adults at least have the proper knowledge and facts and are completely aware of the risks that come with engaging in sexual activity, rather than they just hear random opinions off the streets and get caught up because they never got the proper information in the first place. Some counter arguments could be that if we only teach abstinence and/ or only the negatives of sex (pregnancy, disease, etc.) instead of giving all the information about sex, birth control, condemns, etc., it will be a better way to prevent kids from having sex. But It is pretty clear that whether or not we only tell them the negatives of having sex, they are going to hear plenty of positives out in the streets, in school, from friends and form their own opinions about it.
