Teen Breaks

I saw a link to this site on Feministing and thought that it was relevant to our ongoing and upcoming discussions about girls' sexuality.

The website deals with girls' sexuality and encourages abstinence and condemns abortion.

I find the site absolutely horrifying, full of misinformation and sexism. I was curious as to what you all would have to say about it.

I don't even know where to being with that website. The "doctor's testimonies"? The images of aborted feet? It scares me that with all of the potential the internet holds for sharing girl-positive, healthy and informed information about sexuality, there are so many counter websites which play right back into an abstinence-only fundamentalism agenda. How can girls ever learn with so much false information to sift through? How can we be sure that they are able to make informed decisions about their own sexuality when it is so dictated by websites such as this?

This by the way does nothing but perpetuate insecurity and weakness in women! And misogyny in men!
