whoever ever this is.. pushing this agenda.. we the people need to crush it like whack-a-mole~!!!
This is not an easy issue, but i think its important to leave the emotional, knee-jerk, reactions at the door and approach this issue with a rational mind. Like it or not, but children are exposed to sexuality and pretending they are not will only make the problem worse. I don't have the answer except to say that education is the key to preventing disaster.
Preventing disaster is fine but they aren't even doing that - no word at all in there about abstinence. Liberals don't want religion taught in schools but it's o.k. if you can tell a 10 year old in school that it's Perfectly Normal for a male to have anal sex with another male !! ???
That's Exactly like teaching Religion. It's forcing an opinion on a impressionable child that discourages the kid to think for himself but just to simply and blindly believe everything they are told.
That's Not education. That's Dictation by a Dictator.edit on 25-2-2014 by JohnPhoenix because: sp
Listen up people, it's time to crawl out of your caves and into the sunlight!
Actually, its well past time that people like yourself should be driven back into whatever holes your crawled out of.
I was actually referencing Plato's Allegory of the Cave, which rather appropriately is a comparison between education and the lack thereof and the effect it has on human nature. Have you ever seen the movie, The Croods? Thoroughly enjoyable.
TheConspiracyPagesThe people that believe teaching this kind of stuff to 8 year olds is a good thing, are monsters
TheConspiracyPages and I doubt very seriously that it's the children's benefit that they're looking out for.
So you believe that an entire generation of psychologists, health professionals and educators have a secret agenda to corrupt a child's innocence by educating them on the generalities of sexuality?
What about statistical, peer reviewed, evidence which shows that comprehensive sex education is effective in reducing teen pregnancy, sexually transmitted diseases and the instances of adolescent intercourse?

Advocates for YouthYoung people need honest, effective sex education – not ineffective, shame-based abstinence-only programs.

You don't have to send your kids to a public indoctrination establishment, formerly known as a school. less kids in public school, less money they get, the less personnel they can hire and the public indoctrination establishments can DIE on the vine. funny thing is, why does the union agenda (communism) always get a pass? and the parents are villified if they even speak up. and the "educators" (I wanna barf for having to type that) wonder why parents NEVER want to talk to ANYONE from the schools they're kids attend. we get enough arrogant crap from our elected officials. don't need any from the commizars we call teachers. like the one that showed up to school so drunk she could barley stand. the cops probably told her fellow union hacks to keep her in the parking lot so it wouldn't make the union look bad. union hacks always thinking ahead and sticking together.
And they wonder why kids are having sex and end up pregnant at younger and younger ages these days ...this is just rediclious.
I bet if someone sent this book to all of the lawmakers kids they would end up in jail or worse .
"Perverts and degenerates" -- you use this term quite a bit. Do you have any basis for the belief that very well educated people that study trends and statistics are perverts and degenerates? I don't think you'll find any quantifiable numbers to support your accusations.
I'll respect your belief that professional people with years of both education and experience in the educational system may be what you claim, but please back your claims up somehow.
"In a little grassy bay between tall clumps of Mediterranean heather, two children, a little boy of about seven and a little girl who might have been a year older, were playing, very gravely and with all the focussed attention of scientists intent on a labour of discovery, a rudimentary sexual game. "Charming, charming!" the D.H.C. repeated sentimentally. "Charming," the boys politely agreed. But their smile was rather patronizing. They had put aside similar childish amusements too recently to be able to watch them now without a touch of contempt. Charming? but it was just a pair of kids fooling about; that was all. Just kids. "I always think," the Director was continuing in the same rather maudlin tone, when he was interrupted by a loud boo-hooing. From a neighbouring shrubbery emerged a nurse, leading by the hand a small boy, who howled as he went. An anxious-looking little girl trotted at her heels. "What's the matter?" asked the Director. The nurse shrugged her shoulders. "Nothing much," she answered. "It's just that this little boy seems rather reluctant to join in the ordinary erotic play. I'd noticed it once or twice before. And now again to-day. He started yelling just now ..." "Honestly," put in the anxious-looking little girl, "I didn't mean to hurt him or anything. Honestly." "Of course you didn't, dear," said the nurse reassuringly. "And so," she went on, turning back to the Director, "I'm taking him in to see the Assistant Superintendent of Psychology. Just to see if anything's at all abnormal."
