''Both conservatives and liberals have their respective blinders on when talking about teen sexuality,'' says Milburn, co-author of ''Sexual Intelligence.'' ''I can think of nothing more important than getting in schools and talking about sexual intelligence and healthy relationships, but most conservatives don't want an open and honest discussion about teen sexuality, and they oppose any conversation that doesn't focus on abstinence until marriage. And many liberals will resist any discussion that might touch on the negative consequences of unbridled sexuality. The conversation we need to have with teens is: 'What's the role that sexuality should play in an emotionally healthy person's life? What are the different ways that people can be sexual? What are the potential dangers?' ''
Nice try. Conservatives are not to blame for this. Liberals are reaping (or our children are reaping) exactly what they've sown. It's tragic.

Yes, yes, yes, and these children will loathe and perhaps even hate their parents once they learn how they have failed them. There may well be a socially conservative tidal wave bubbling up from the under-25 crowd.
