>most women in our communities are getting pregnant from booty

You must be hanging with a whole different crowd...all those women you know must be getting pregnant all day and every day! :-) I went to college with some serious sistahs. We networked with other colleges, including Ivy League (Columbia) and City College (NYC). We had lots of parties but only two of my friends got pregnant and one was Korean!

But that isn't my point. It takes a woman AND a man to make a baby.

Women can be on the sexual conquest tip and still not get pregnant. These women are not trying to get pregnant. I find that the women on the corner are more likely to be "deceived" or jump into sex among other things as something to do...with no regard for the consequences. I was telling my mentee that my priorities were way different when I was her age. She just rolled her eyes at me...but she learned the hard way and now she's in college (no baby).

Men AND women are both too casual with sex and some are still healing from something that happened during their formative years. That's why I always say, "Therapy! Hello!" Don't put all that jaded attitude and bitterness on the children.
