Raging Hormones

Okay, first of all, this oft-used phrase begs the question, are hormones ever not raging? Reading this article from Reuters, I was struck by two things: (1) The idiocy of the school system which thinks that teaching kids this will stem the tide of teen pregnancies in Great Britian and (B) every time hormones are mentioned in the context of teens, they’re “raging”. The latter just tickles me. Of course they’re raging – isn’t that what hormones do? You never hear anyone say a person has pacifistic hormones, laid-back hormones, sanguine hormones…No, they’re always raging. And for good reason — rrrrow! So, gimme a break, people; these “stopping points” are a joke.
