Middle School Sex?

I've been grading avoiding work, and I started watching the show "Private Practice". One of the storylines is that of a middle school student (in a plaid uniform, peter pan collar) who is having consensual sex. It's obvious that someone in the production company wanted to make a point that there's nothing wrong with allowing children TOO YOUNG TO CONSENT TO SEX to receive confidential medical services - without parental knowledge.

Never mind that a student of that age cannot make that decision. Never mind that the overwhelming majority of 14 and under girls that are sexually active are being exploited by a much older man (21+).

God forbid that they should not be able to conceal evidence of the crime from their parents.

Can you tell I'm against this? And that I object to television that uses the media to propagandize?
