Encouraging people to have safe sex is important, but apparently a state fair in North Dakota thought that that was too much trouble and decided to promote some anti-abortion rhetoric instead. How? Oh, you know, instead of offering kids giant stuffed animals as prizes in wack-a-mole, they decided to give them little fetus toys instead.
Yeah, fetus toys.
Well, I don’t know about you, but I think that instead of trying to guilt children into an entire lifetime of damnation for supporting a woman’s right to choose, they should have encouraged these kids to learn a about safe sex. Actually, they probably should have just gave these kids their damn stuffed animals without any lecturing, but if they had to do it I think that my suggestion is a little better.
Here are a few better ways to promote safe sex that the North Dakota State Fair should have used instead.
Marathon 16 And Pregnant & Teen MomSpend hours and hours watching teenage girls go through their last days of pregnancy and subsequent parenthood, all before prom! If this show doesn't encourage you to wrap it up then I honestly don't know what to say.Source: MTV
Go To Chuck E. CheeseOkay, I like kids a lot. I hope to have them someday in the future. But that doesn't mean that they're great all the time, especially when they're being incredibly loud in an enclosed space with dozens of other children who are also loud in an enclosed space. Go to a place like Chuck E. Cheese and see what I mean. I even hated that place when I was a kid.Source: Shutterstock
Watch Some Cheesy Yet Informative PropagandaWatch those old afterschool specials about STDs. Yeah, they're really cheesy, but STDs weren't a laughing matter back in the day and they aren't now. Before some guy assures you that he's clean and that a condom just doesn't feel as good, remember a lil thing called syphilis. Source: IMDB
Take Care Of Your Pets For A Week Straight NonstopI mean nonstop. Don't let them out of our sight, not even when they do their business. When they're hungry don't put off feeding them. When they want to play and you don't want to, don't lock the door. Watch them like hawks. When you're done, imagine that experience for another 955 weeks and you've got the amount of time before a kid turns 18-years-old. Think about it.Source: Shutterstock
Watch A Childbirth VideoNothing sexier than starting off your foreplay by watching a live birth tape. Seriously though, childbirth can be a beautiful thing, I guess, but if you don't want a baby hurtling out of your vagina now and you're having sex, this is a great reminder of what can happen if you don't use some sort of birth control.Source: Shutterstock
Walk In On Your ParentsIf That 70s Show taught me anything it is that walking in on your parents having sex is horrifying; enough to make you want to give up sex forever. But this isn't about encouraging abstinence (though you can do that too, if you want) so honestly I think I just wanted an excuse to make you all cringe.Source: Shutterstock
Just Use Some Birth ControlIn all seriousness birth control is something that you shouldn't even need a ton of justification to use. Just use it, seriously. It'll make your life a lot easier, a lot less stressful and there will be a lot less hospital visits. Just play it safe, girls. Better to be safe than gonorrhea. Source: Shutterstock
