The story is a lie and should be placed in the hoax bin.


No kidding.
A former SNL cast member turned conservative Victoria Jackson met with a bunch of crazies, misunderstood what they told her in the meeting, and wrote an entire blog post that was based on false information, causing harassment to the school district. And for this the voters should give her a job where she has to listen to constituents, create policy, and serve in a leadership position.

She spread lies, then failed to take accountability or apologize.

That kind of politics will make her fit right in with the Christian Conservative base. It is freakin disgraceful its like an SNL joke!

Doom and Gloom

Society cannot flourish with a scientific understanding alone. Turning sex into a mechanical function or in other words a means to an ends, you destroy emotion, feeling, and relationships.


I understand exactly what you mean, and looking at the issue in the way you describe makes it seem rather strange, almost alien in eventuality like the social landscape of a brave new world. What will the world look like when everyone is in control of the forces which give form to the Universe and drive life? Boring that's what! Whatever will we do without our daily fix of doom and gloom, smut, chanel #5, twerks and romantic drama!




Doom and GloomWe as a society are already conditioned to "Consume." Ever more things are required, the programming has been so successful that there is no end to it.



whacka, whacka, whacka

I respect this too, I just take note of the 'dumbing down' of our children and take that seriously as well.
You can't on one hand complain about a dumbed down world, then fear the very things that ensure education is possible.

This is my first post, but I've been a lurker on here for a long time - great Stanton Friedman thread mods by the way, really enjoying the read.

I just wanted to say is that I'm in my forties, live in the UK, and I had sex education classes in school when I was around eight or nine years old. I've just Googled some of the content of 'Its Perfectly Normal' (so I haven't read it and may be missing something) but they seem, well, perfectly normal to me. Our headteacher who took the class, used to use an overhead projector to display these kind of images onto a screen in the classroom. I can remember it being slightly odd and a little embarrassing, but I certainly don't believe it 'corrupted' me or #-ed me up. IMHO, this seems to be something the Americans would fret about a lot more than Europeans. Kids are a lot more hardy and questioning than we give them credit for. I have two boys and would have no problem with them reading this.

BTW, this was a Church of England school too, which meant prayers at the start and end of the day, at lunch and during assemblies. Certainly not liberal or progressive - actually a very old-fashioned English school.

Just my two pennies.

Schools should stick to the ABCs and 123s ... and history and science. Considering how they can't even get those things right (look at test scores in the USA), I really don't think they should be spending the time or the money on things that are best taught at home.

It's a better alternative than allowing MTV to teach kids about sexuality. There's evidence all around us that parents aren't broaching discussions about sexuality - they're leaving it to the media.

Provided classes are administered in an age-appropriate manner, it will be a good thing because it will remove the taboo of sexuality when introduced to the young. And we all know that taboos are magnets for children. Sexuality is a critical element in the human identity, and yet we find it reprehensible to attempt teaching children about it. By providing information we empower.
