For Ubuntu's 16th birthday, Gerald agrees to teach him to drive. Helen insists, though, that he can only drive in an emergency. While shopping, Helen is convinced by her peers that it is time to talk with Bliss about sexual activity. They wander onto the local college activity fair, and Helen is horrified that Bliss chooses the abstinence group over the sexually liberal reproductive health services. Gerald goes with Bliss to a purity dance, but both of them are afraid of the religious rituals associated with the event. They make an emergency call for Ubuntu to come and get them out.
Did You Know?
I've got no problem with abstinence. It's these abstinence people. They're not like us. They wear flag pins, Gerald, and you know as well as I do what that means.
Now, come on, Helen, since the election, we can all wear flag pins.
Really? You're gonna wear a flag pin?
Er, no. My point is, maybe we shouldn't be so judgmental. Don't we always try to celebrate people's differences, and learn from them?
Sure, if they're like Native Americans or backwards rainforest tribes, but not these people.
