* "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" Problem Logging In?

If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

And to put this in perspective, I turned 21 this year. It's a disturbing thought that this might be actually getting worse and not better when it comes to sex ed.

 
Want to hear something really scary?  I'm just three years older than you and from the Bible Belt and the sex ed I got in school was actually competent.  They didn't shy away from condoms at any rate and had pretty much the same class every year from grades six to ten.  Also they explained what sexual harassment is.  No, no one dressed as a panda.

Kind of freaky:eek:

...She had had absolutely no warning and thought a snake had bitten her (she was peeing in the woods the first time her period came, so the snake part was understandable, I guess)  She didn't want us to be as 'innocent' as her parents thought she should be.

My mom had a similar experience. At thirteen, she got her first period. She thought she was dying.

...

There was never a sex talk, and I am so damn lucky I didn't end up pregnant with my first boyfriend (which I don't know when or if she ever knew we were sexually active) because we used the pull-out method. These days I want to smack myself for being so stupid and naive, but then I think about it... was it really my fault? Or his? We truely believed it was "good enough", but now we don't because we KNOW. But no one TOLD us back then, nor did we even think of trying to reach out or ask someone or look it up on the internet, because we didn't realize there was a problem.

...

 
Oh, gods! Me, too! We used the pull-out method and it's really, really lucky that we didn't get knocked up.

I started when I was ten and I also thought I was going to die. However, I was afraid of doctors and hid the fact that I was bleeding from my mother. I was kind of strange.

My sex ed was very good, and I do come from a conservative town in Arizona. Not a liberal state in general. Lol. They described the efficiency of each method,use two types, etc.

They also threw in the whole encouragement to wait stuff. The lady put clear duct tape on my arm, then another, and other. The duct time,collecting skin cells, obviously stopped being sticky. She said," This is like relationships. The more you have sex, the bond between your new relationships gets weaker."

So *that* part I highly,highly disagree with. Saying that having sex makes your future relationships meaningless is a downright lie. They also passed out the whole "abstinence ID" card stuff. Least they covered some good health stuff. You had to get signed permission from your parents,though. They also only offered it once during your entire high school life in the 9th grade.

And people wonder why so many of us get so pissed at that school of thought.  People think education is expensive, yet ignorance (especially willful), can sure have more severe consequences.
