This made tear up for real.


In case you missed it, another unarmed black teenager was gunned down over the weekend. 18-year-old Mike Brown had his hands in the air when he was shot multiple times. Naturally, news outlets only want to talk about the supposed looting that took place while people were protesting his death. And the photos they used to report his death look more like the ones on the right than the ones on the left. The Root did a great piece on the Twitter backlash.

"Because lying to your kids about sex helps nobody. Telling them that sex is “only between mommies and daddies” is a lie that leads to confused, hormone charged teenagers. Telling them that sex is “only something that happens when two people love each other very much” is a lie that causes hormone charged teenagers to confuse “love” with “lust,” or “obsession.” It leads to leaps of logic like, “If I have sex with them, we must be in love.” Or worse- “If I love them, I have to have sex with them.” And how many teenage tragedies are based on that misconception?"
