Today on The View, Sherri Shepherd asked Bristol Palin how she planned to reconcile abstinence with "raging hormones." Bristol's answer was sort of equivocal — unlike her views on her mom's presidential hopes.
Palin told Shepherd — who's talked about her own abstinence in the past — that her experience of being a teen mom was enough to keep her from sex. Her recent PSA for the Candie's Foundation aimed to use this experience to dissuade other teens from sex as well — although she did say earlier in her View appearance that the Foundation doesn't have an abstinence-only focus. Regardless, Palin didn't offer any concrete tips on avoiding sex, or a real analysis of why teens should choose abstinence over contraception. She was much more definite on the topic of her mom's future. She thinks a Sarah Palin presidency would be "awesome" — which is not the word we'd use.
