Without sexual feelings, no one would be motivated to make babies. That's part of how it works.


Okay, this debate has now gone WAY past anything which could be considered reasonably logical in any sense of the definition!!

You've totally confused emotion with instinct. Emotion plays little to any role in procreation in the rest of the animal kingdom. The same holds true for early evolutions of humans...or do you deny this too??? Dogs don't mate because they love each other, they mate because this is what they do instinctively.

Masturbation is also usually discussed, as in, it's normal and you won't go blind - not how to do it.

I'm not talking about romantic love, but we've gone way off topic here. The point is, teachers don't have to have specific degrees in all the subjects they teach.

I think my brain is about to explode! That, or go into some kind of electrical fault status. Good Gawd!!

Maybe we should add in some classes like:

- Necrophilia
- Beastiality
- ...(and, oh I dunno, maybe)...
- The joys of serial killing
- Mainlining drugs

(thud)

While I agree you shouldn't make a child feel terrible about masterbating , I think it is wise to start at an early age to teach self discipline and self respect regarding this issue.

You say teaching transgender to young children has nothing to do with sexuality... yet you say that they are also taught about masterbation ? Something doesn't equate and I see an agenda to hyper sexualize young children all under the guise of scientifically proven normal behaviour.

Makes one wonder how many pedos are actually in the American Association of Paediatricians 🤔

What the heck are you talking about? You are mixing several different subjects together. I get it, we went off topic, but please try and keep up.

Masturbation is not discussed around 5 year olds in school. Gender dysphoria itself is not about sexuality. One can discuss topics like transgender people and even homosexuality around little kids without it being about sex. Sex ed is much later, around the age of puberty, when those feelings are starting to happen.

Explain to me how you tell 5 year olds about homosexuality without bringing sex into the equation. Many men love each other ... children see that in family and friends but they all don't want to have sex with each other. You can't truly explain homosexuality without explaining the sex aspect of it.

Why isn't sex ed being taught to kindergarten kids?

Leave it to an adult to complicate things.

To kid: people love each other. Sometimes there's special love between 2 people (no gender needs to be mentioned at this age).

No one talks SEX to a 5 year old.

My 9 year old granddaughter: "Gramma, is gay when a boy likes a boy or a girl likes a girl?" YES. "Oh, OK" - - then she ran outside to play.

Some kids might have 2 mommies, and some might have 2 daddies. The Prince might fall in love with another Prince instead of a princess. It doesn't totally explain the subject, but could introduce the subject without talking about sex.

Define SEX.

Children become aware of their differences as early as age 3.

Because no kindergarten kids have sexual feelings yet, nor will they have to deal with other kindergarten kids who do. Gender dysphoria is sometimes experienced by kindergarten kids.

If my 5 year old had a friend with two mommies - - and asked me why.

I'd tell him "Because they love each other". Nothing more needs to be said.

That could get confusing as hell when one set of 2 mommies is actually a woman and transgendered male.

Two daddies could mean two gay women ?

The whole LGBTQ community and its 100's of genders is confusing as hell to many adults .. I hardly think explaining it to 5 year olds using prince and princesses is going to be any less confusing for them.

Being aware is not synonymous with understanding.

We as adults barely understand, so how can a 3 year old?

Understanding what?

What do you think a 3 year old is supposed to understand?

How can a 3 year old underestand what dysphoria is when they don't even understand what a gender is?

Understanding their differences.

NOTHING. That's my point.

And I know five year olds who would say " but my mommy loves her friends .. why didn't she marry them instead of daddy? "

You might actually scare the child away from saying " I love you " to anyone because she will be afraid it means being something she is not.
