Editorial - The consequences of sex When it comes to teen pregnancy, teachers who provide family life education in local schools see a pattern: Teenage girls who are physically mature for their age and men in their 20s (or older) who are a little bit immature mentally. The combination may not hold true for every relationship, but it does hold up often enough that Pennsylvania officials have tried to craft a law that would hold adult men responsible if they have sex with underage girls.

On a recent shopping trip, I noticed a pair of sweatpants with words across the backside and wondered, once again, why manufacturers think this a good idea. Perhaps they think girls will buy the pants in order to attract attention. They probably are right. But why are parents allowing their daughters to walk around in these?  When a piece of clothing has a word on it, where does the eye go? Straight to the word. Do we really want to attract attention to our daughters' bottoms?
