The Good Side of Red States or the 1950s
According to a recent study:
Perhaps most surprising, the Virginia study found that adolescents who had sex at younger ages were less likely to end up delinquent than those who lost their virginity later. Many factors play into a person's readiness for sex, but in at least some cases sexual relationships may offer an alternative to trouble, the researchers say.Does that mean that everybody who ridiculed the red-state hypocrites (or 1950s hypocrites) on the grounds there is a higher teen birth rate in red states (and there was a higher teen birth rate in the 1950s) should apologize?
Wait a moment … The higher teen birth rates turned out to be due to married teens. Are the non-delinquents mentioned above also more likely to be married?
On the other hand, this might merely mean that having a sexually-active twin will produce delinquent behavior.
