Sex education

Sex Education is classroom instruction on human reproduction and sexuality. It is typically taught by both public and private schools, with parents usually given the option of withdrawing their children if they feel the content to be inappropriate or have personal or religious objections.

The appropriate content for sex education is a subject of political dispute within the United States, and within other countries. The greatest division is between the comprehensive and abstinence-only schools of thought. Proponents of comprehensive sex education believe that instruction should include education on methods of contraception, as a means to prevent the twin threats of pregnancy and the transmission of sexually-transmitted infections. Proponents of abstinence education maintain that instructing unmarried teenagers on contraception is implicitly endorsing sexual activity outside of marriage, (a claim which is supported by research in the U.S. and U.K.)[1] and so sex education should omit contraception and instead concentrate on helping teenagers to avoid pressure towards pre-marital sexual activity, and to wait until they are in a monogamous, married relationship to begin sexual activity.

Sex Ed as part of the business plan

Organizations like Planned Parenthood lobby state legislatures in order to mandate their Sex Education curriculum. They make the most money from women under thirty and especially from return customers who had their first abortion as a teenager. Abortion would not be as big of a business if not for the sexualization of children through Hollywood, media, government and esp. public schools. That's why they sell the "safe sex" lie and promote a worry-free message of sex without consequences. One result ends up being millions of teen pregnances which lead either to abortions or to sexually transmitted diseases. Young clients often go to their clinics to get help for treatment of their STD while certain medications can be quite expensive. From a business standpoint, it makes sense that Planed Parenthood, with more appropriate name "Preventing Parenthood," aims for young impressionable kids with developing hormones by promoting promiscuity and sexual experimentation. The concepts of abstinence, purity, and self-restraint are nowhere to be found. Their message is the blatant indoctrination intended to increase Planned Parenthood's business income. One employee lectured students at Ramona High School, Riverside, CA, saying: "At Planned Parenthood you can also get birth control without the consent or knowledge of your parents. So, if you are 14, 15, or 16 and you come to Planned Parenthood, we won't tell your parents you've been there. We swear we won't tell your parents."[2]

Liberals vs. Conservatives

In general, comprehensive education is favored by liberals while abstinence-only education is favored by conservatives.

Specific components

As well as subjects directly related to physical sexual acts, sex education may also include instruction or guidance on relationship management, self-control, pregnancy, the physiological changes of puberty, so called "sexual orientation", the term of LGBT+ gleichschaltung used for masking sexual disorientation, and sometimes the morality of sex. This variety adds to the political controversy, with varying groups advocating the inclusion or exclusion of specific components.

Sex education is typically taught at varying points throughout education, either as a separate short course (often with a visiting specialist teacher) or as a module in the science curriculum. Thus an individual student will go through several sex education courses, each one imparting information considered appropriate for their age at the time.

Abstinence Only

Federal funding for abstinence only education across the country has increased during the decade, but still does not equal the amount of money the government gives to Planned Parenthood, a single organization, each year.[3][4]

It should be noted that, while teens can benefit from abstinence-only sex ed in school, prudent parents may still want to take the precaution of informing their children of basic contraception. No matter how strong the will to resist one's physical urges, it cannot be denied that some children will inevitably give in to their desires and that they ought to know how to prevent unplanned pregnancy in this eventuality.

Sex Education in England

In England the National Curriculum [5] requires all schools to offer comprehensive sex education as part of Personal, Social and Health Education, from junior school on. These classes are opt-out: All children take the lessons unless their parents have previously requested otherwise.

Sex Education in America

Sex education in America is dominated by SIECUS and its "cohorts" AFY and Planned Parenthood.[6]

Miriam Grossman, M.D. wrote:

  • Modern sex ed began in the sixties. It was based on Alfred Kinsey’s model of human sexuality. Thanks to the brilliant and courageous work of Dr. Judith Reisman, we now know that Kinsey was both a fraud, and a deeply disturbed individual.
  • For Kinsey, it was anything goes when it came to sexuality, and I mean anything. He believed, for example, that pedophiles were misunderstood, and their punishments unjust.
  • "Sexuality is not an appetite to be curbed", Kinsey insisted. He taught that, and he lived it.
  • His official biography documents the beliefs on which he based his work, and his personal life: The "human animal" is pansexual. Traditional morality is destructive.[7]

Dogma

  • that desires are "needs," to be acted upon and satisfied
  • that behaviors considered aberrant by society and medicine are natural, while self-restraint is not
  • that regular sexual behavior - with or without a committed relationship - is necessary and healthy
  • that any and all of these activities can be free of consequences, as long as they're "protected"[8]

Intimacy and trust

Miriam Grossman wrote, "Like it or not, hard science suggests that intimacy initiates a trusting bond." Unprotected, p. 12[8]
