Body dysmorphia, also known as body dysmorphic disorder, is a chronic mental illness. A person suffering from BDD cannot stop thinking about a flaw in their appearance. That flaw might be real, or it could be entirely imagined. Either way, it doesn’t matter – a person with BDD feels awful and ashamed of it, despite what anyone says.
One of the worst things a school can do is teach with an abstinence only policy. Studies have proven that this method does not work at all - in fact, schools that preach abstinence only are usually schools with high rates of pregnancy because nobody knows what the eff they’re doing. I’m not saying abstinence is bad - if that’s your choice, that’s great. But teaching abstinence only means you don’t teach how to have safe sex. This means that students don’t learn about condoms, birth control, or anything else. Telling students not to have sex and expecting them to actually listen is absurd. Students should be taught what they need to know so that they can make an informed decision on their own.
