Teen Pregnancy

Here’s a link to a story on the Vancouver Sun’s website about how lesbian teens are (percentage-wise) more likely to get pregnant than their heterosexual peers. The article supposes that part of the reason behind this is the pressure that society puts upon youth to live up to the idealized mother and fatherhood of heterosexuality. Seems to not say much for our society, and by that I mean society in it’s universal world-wide sense, if kids feel so stigmatized that they have to be so unlike themselves in order to feel accepted.
