I defend business owners (salons, restaurants, etc.) doing everything they can to make money before I defend people congregating. Get on Zoom if you need to see people; the business needs to be open to survive (and the family that owns it and the people that work there too).
Would you support including stories like these in Sex Ed? Yes, most kids and teens have access to plenty of info on this topic, but most of it comes from Hollywood and doesn’t tell ‘the truth’ of what firsts are really like.
It’s hard for me to intentionally quit a book, especially if I’m already 50 pages in and even if it’s not that good. But I unintentionally leave many books in my Kindle library that I don’t immediately get into within the first few pages. Out of sight, out of mind.
Also, I heard about a rule that you really shouldn’t read nonfiction less than 10 years old, which is probably hard for tech but easier for history, self-improvement, biography, etc. What stands the test of time is worth it.
