Closing Thought–14Mar18

One of the most controversial programs in our schools is sex education…..OMG!  they will teach our children how to have sex?

That is one of the dumbass questions that is asked when the subject of sex education is brought up at a school board meeting…..that is not what the program would be about…..

The program would teach our kids what happens when they have sex…unwanted pregnancy….it would also teach the kids about STDs….safe sex would be the aim of the program….but to some that would be tantamount to teach our children to be prostitutes….

For most of the religious types there is only one acceptable way to have safe sex and with the Trumpian thought process ….the only thing would be abstinence…..

Abstinence-only education — encouraging adolescents to wait until marriage for sex — is making a comeback under President Trump.

In a marked departure from the previous administration, conservatives at the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) are putting an emphasis on abstinence to reduce teen pregnancy rates.

“We definitely are seeing a shift,” said Kelly Marcum, a government affairs legislative assistant at the Family Research Council in Washington, which supports abstinence-only education.

“We’re really excited to see that the administration is giving some tools back to us to keep pushing that fight.”

The last time abstinence only program was to the forefront the incidents of anal sex among teens went way up.

My point is that teens have raging hormones and they are going to have sex so why not teach them all about the act….knowledge would go a long way to preventing unwanted pregnancies….

We cannot blame Trump as much as I would like to…..ignorance does more damage…….. many babies are born out of ignorance….besides what is better than sex?

Gotta bounce…..peace out and look for more stuff….chuq

  1. I hated the class because there were no live demonstrations and I hated it more when the place where I worked started their anti-sexual harassment program because sexual harassment was the only attention anyone ever paid to me at work except when I botched a job or something.

      1. Southern Puritan attitudes only hold water so far as they are being observed by others who can judge them. Even Baptists raise Hell but the secret is to catch them at it.

  2. We had liberal sex education, back in 1963. They taught us separately, and with the girls too. They covered most topics, and dispelled all the myths. I think it was and is essential.
    Best wishes, Pete.

      1. It was London in the 1960s, a very progressive place. Teachers talked to us about erections and masturbating. When we stopped laughing, we realised that they were the same as us. And we also discovered that girls couldn’t get pregnant from giving blow jobs, or sitting on toilet seats. It was a revelation, at the time. I like to think it all made me more considerate with women, and made me understand about periods, and unwanted pregnancies too. Well done to those teachers, I say.
        Best wishes, Pete.

      1. I ain’t been around much,sorry. Too much work here…trying to keep on top of things,but you are never far from my mind. 🙂 take care.
