D.C. Teens Complain That Free Condoms Handed Out in School Are Too Small, Too Cheap; D.C. Agrees to Start Handing Out Trojans

I think I'm having trouble wrapping my mind around this story because there's no way to match this "free condoms from the school nurse" thing with the nice rural Oklahoma town I grew up in. It just wouldn't compute.

At our nation's capital though:

High school students and college-age adults have been complaining to District officials that the free condoms the city has been offering are not of good enough quality and are too small and that getting them from school nurses is "just like asking grandma or auntie."

So D.C. officials have decided to stock up on Trojan condoms, including the company's super-size Magnum variety, and they have begun to authorize teachers or counselors, preferably male, to distribute condoms to students if the teachers complete a 30-minute online training course called "WrapMC" -- for Master of Condoms.

"If people get what they don't want, they are just going to trash them," said T. Squalls, 30, who attends the University of the District of Columbia. "So why not spend a few extra dollars and get what people want?"

REALLY? REALLY?

If you got a whole bunch of people who shouldn't be having sex it would be teens and college-age students who need free condoms—2.5 million condoms in FY2010 so far.

REALLY?
