Why Do We Need To Teach Sex Ed In Schools, Anyway?

As the debate rages about Ontario’s new sex-ed curriculum, John Robson asks a “radical” question:

Why do we want, and need, schools to teach our children about sex in the first place?

Shouldn’t this be the primary responsibility of families?

    I have a real big issue with what they want to teach 6-8 year olds.

    • Especially since Ben Levin’s statement of facts contain passage that sound awfully like the approach taken by the new Sex-ed curriculum.

        When I was in high school around 25 years ago they did teach sex ed now it was nothing like this not even close but at that time what they were teaching some said it was teaching to much.

    Nobody taught me nuttin but I figured it out in 2 minutes with the help of the internet.

    Why . . . grooming.

  • Norman_In_New_York

    The rationale is to prevent STDs and unwanted pregnancies. Whether this is the way to do so is highly debatable.

      There were less of those before the big push for sex ed started. So I question if the sex ed isn’t the cause of the problem that want to use sex ed to “fix”.

        In my time there was no such thing as sex ed in school, but biology covered the basics, yet for some reason none of us were stumped when it came to sex. Furthermore unwed mothers were extremely rare (I only heard of one case at the time) and the same for STDs. Furthermore we were well aware of condoms and did not need instructions as to how to use them. The one thing that really made a big impression on us boys was that if you got a girl pregnant you would be held responsible and accountable, which meant at least 18 years of financial responsibility. There was also the issue of bringing shame to you, to the girl and to both families. All that was very effective in cooling biological urges for both parties.

          I must be the generation after you, sex ed was just coming in and in high school it suddenly was the big push.

          It had to be right behind me that the change happened. Our high school had 1 pregnancy in the previous 10 years and then in my grade 12 year they used a spare class room for a group of kids who had legal troubles. They were all grade 9 but were taking a special IOP program to get them up to speed to enter high school the next year. They had like 20 kids and by the end of the year all 12 of the girls in that program had dropped out from getting pregnant.

    Oh well, here’s a typical example of what today’s “modern” progressive parents endorse for their eleven-year old kids. Not to mention the parents raising kids in gender neutral households and dragging them to adult gay pride parades every year. Funny? Never thought I’d end up being such an old closed – minded prude. Here’s a young Christopher Gray for you and what the hell does he know about bondage? WTF?

      Picture and his mom is a teacher also.

    B/C they want to turn all the little boys into girlymen with their pinkshirt days, LBQT agitprop

    Back in my teenage years a few nervous minutes reading the little booklet in the condom box taught me the proper method of use. The rest was figured out through trial and error.

    I’ve been asking this for the last 50 years. When I was young in the 40s and 50s, they didn’t have sex education in schools. I learned about sex from older kids and the family health book kept in my Mother’s bureau. My parents didn’t have to tell me anything. We understood enough to stay out of sexual trouble since we didn’t want to shame our parents. Teaching about sex in grades 1-12 validates sex for kids of that age and makes it more likely they will act out what they’ve learned rather than wait till marriage. IOW, sex education has provided a result opposite to the one that was intended.

    The genocidist elites are trying to be patient with their methods. A lifetime of sex, booze, and drugs but no kids is all they require from 90% of the wage slave common herd prepared to cooperate. Of course if the decreasing numbers start falling way short of expectations, some more energetic directed options are likely to be implemented.

    Let’s just stop this and look at it again if all the kids are grade A in math, english and science, then we reconsider.
