Sex-Ed Absurdity

Our leaders in government and education are adamant that children receive sex-education classes.  By sex-ed, they don't mean lessons on the mechanics of sex, which is something that students learn in biology class, but rather a curriculum aimed at pregnancy and STD avoidance.  Some support programs that emphasize abstinence, while others advocate contraception.  What none of our "sex-educators" in the classroom or in Congress seem to realize is the horrifying implications of sex-ed.  If society and the family are so utterly broken that children need the state to instruct them in matters of sex, then pack your bags, hop on a boat and get the heck out of here because we are living in a dystopia!

If so many parents are incapable of informing their children that pregnancy is a result of sex and that sexually transmitted diseases are, well, sexually transmitted, then our civilization has obviously decayed so far that it cannot be salvaged.  The reason that I haven't relocated to Malta yet is that I don't think our society has reached the point of no return.  Sex-ed should be removed from the curriculum.  If it turns out that our civilization cannot survive without sexual instruction from the state, then it doesn't deserve to exist anyway.

  1. I don't believe the issue is as black and white as you make it. I went to the same high school as you and we didn't have sex ed. Have you noticed how many people from our school have had children and how many said they had sex in high school? I've also talked to a number of friends who also have contracted an STD or had abortions. Frankly, it sickens me to think that people I know and care about made that decision, but I think they could have prevented having as many consequences from sex if they had been better informed.

    The fact is not everyone in our society is going to practice pre-marital abstinence. People are human, we all commit sin on occasion; I'd much rather someone be well informed and if they are going to have sex use preventative contraception. I think that is better then to have them kill an innocent unborn child.

    Finally, lots of parents are misinformed or cannot teach their children in an effective manner- not just about sex, but about academics as well. We have schools to teach students about math, science, etc.; I think the more informed they make students the better it is for society.

    1. You are right that parents are not equipped to teach their children about everything. However, if they cannot instruct their children in something as basic as sex, what can they teach them? Some teenagers are going to have sex regardless of what anyone, teacher or parent tells them, but most teens do care what their parents say. It is the child's responsibility to obey his or her parents, but if those parents are totally incapable of teaching them about sex then they shouldn't be parents in the first place. I don't think that the number of such unfit parents is so great that sex-ed must be imposed on the masses. If the proportion of incompetent parents is that large, then we really are living in a sort of dystopia.

    2. Also, I definitely agree with you that non-abortafacient contraception is preferable to abortion, but it is one thing to prefer an evil and another thing to promote it.

  2. What is being promted as sex ed by the government is actually promoting Planned Parenthood's agenda. Remember, abstinance based education is fought by the experts at every turn & only allowed when required to by laws that they fought tooth & nail to prevent being passed. This government promotion allows Planned Parenthood to come in & say we have just what the government wants. They tell the victims (students) abstinance doesn't work all that well, a much disproven lie when the studies have been unbiased. Studies have proven abstinance based sex ex does reduce unwanted pregnanvies. They then tell them all about the various forms of contraception, available from the local Planned Parenthood of course, without honestly telling them about the actual failure rates. Then when the girl is pregnant because the contraception failed, as they knew it would eventually, Planned Parenthood is waiting there to provide the abortion.
    As the Catholic Church rightly teaches, it is the parents' responsibility, not the school's, to provde the proper sex ed for a child.

    1. An especially evil example of "sex-ed" in Ottawa:
