Those are some good thoughts, But here's my reasons for doing it this way. You wrote: "The subcamps state the the varying views as to what type of pse there should be." EXACTLY... and that is the point of my camp. There is no way to determine WHICH people want ONLY abstinence, which want ONLY safe sex, and which want BOTH, unless you have all three as SUB camps, that people can join. The parent camp is no place to express the TYPES of education people want, because that is a contested view. It is just the place to say that we want SOME form of public sex education, because THAT is all there appears to be consensus on. The type issue is controversial, and so should be battled out in the sub camps. There is a sub camp for abstinence only, and one for safe sex only. Why should those that believe that there should be both be in the parent camp? After all, if we wrote the parent camp in that way, then the two sub camps would have to leave it, since they wouldn't agree.
Does this make sense?
