Yeah, she's not wrong, but if abstinence is all ya got, it's a disservice, especially coming from a nurse. I've never watched her, so I don't know how she presented her information.

We know from the history of human beings that preaching abstinence is and has always been a huge flop. Has never worked and will never work, even amongst her target audience, for all they like to preach it.

 

How do you define "flop"?

How do you know what her target audience does?

Meaning it doesn't stop people from having sex. Nothing stops people from having sex. All abstinence-only education does is leave the sexual beings unprepared for STDs and pregnancy. Doesn't matter who her "target audience" is-they are all human beings. Human beings have a sex drive that doesn't respond to shame or finger wagging or moral pronouncements.

And before you say "well I was a virgin when I married," I'm not talking about any particular individual. I'm talking human race terms. No matter the culture, no matter the religion, telling people they "shouldn't" do something and just leaving it at that just doesn't work on a global scale.

"Influencer" is a buzz word of the millennials to designate someone that has a lot of followers on various social media platforms like Instagram, TikTok and Facebook, that they influence to a certain point of view.   An example of an influencer would be Gwenth Pawltrow, and her quackery advice her gives her social media followers.

TikTok has about a billion downloads and is a social media app used mostly by tweens and teens, but people like Will Smith and Jennifer Lopez have gotten on the bandwagon.  It's huge and has made celebrities out of some users.  It's particularly influential in the music industry.

I'm 60 and even I know this.  LOL

Well, I guess at 60, you are more hip than me.  And I have a teenager.  Who is this “nurse influencer” influencing exactly, if this is tweens and teenagers?  I guess that’s what I don’t get?  I think we all know tweens and teenagers can only afford likes.  Not $$.  
 

Where have we come as society that “likes” become more important than dialogue or even money?

I don't think I'm "hip" or even strive to be, just aware of what an influencer is.  I'm still old school and active on Facebook and Instagram but lucky to get 10 likes when I post.

Influencers get money from advertisers and product placement, not necessarily from the tweens and teens themselves.  Kylie Jenner has over 150 million followers on her various social media and all she has to do is take a picture with a certain product, say a perfume, and she makes a million dollars.  Crazy right?

But yes, "likes" seem to have become important to people.  People do some crazy stuff to go viral.

Also, to answer your question, if she's preaching abstinence until marriage to avoid STD's then her target audience is indeed the tweens and teens she wants to influence to her way of thinking.   Like I said, the money (if any, it could just be ego driven, or a sincere desire to help) comes from elsewhere.

And there is nothing wrong with saying abstinence is the only 100% way to prevent pregnancy and STDs. It's the thinking that preaching abstinence is the only information one needs to provide to teens and tweens in order to prevent pregnancy and STDs that is the problem.
