Sexual Education

My friend and I had a debate the other day on sexual education in schools.  His debate was that fat kids shouldn't get sex education because they are fat and less likely, if not completely unable, to get laid.  By educating these fat kids, it would depress them because they would never be able experience sexual intercourse.  My argument was that everybody should be educated in case they ever do have intercourse.  Some people have a genetic predisposition to be heavier, and that should not be held against them.  My friend retorted that in the case that these fat kids were to ever become skinny, that they would be instated to receive the education. In short, my friend argued to not educate fat kids with sexual education in order to keep them happy, while I argued that everyone, regardless of any issues, be it genetic or social, be educated in case that the situation arises where intercourse is imminent.  What do you think?
