Whether or not one abstains from sex should be a personal choice. Educators are there to teach the facts, not to promote their own personal values or any sort of "message".

Abstinence is the best preventative method of birth control. For the girl in the photo to say "screw abstinence" I find a bit dumb and against the goal of sex education. I know she's trying to be sound bite-ishly cool, but it sucks as a message. "Screw abstinence only education" I can get behind but that's too long for a t-shirt, I guess. Abstinence should be the fist line education message followed by a close condom/pill if you have to message.
