My first question is, which PhD came up with this? How much are you paying them for their expertise in the sexual maturity of five year olds? Are they psychologists, psychiatrists or other mental health professionals? They of course have experience in dealing with abused children whose innocence has been stripped away and trashed. All of the children in the Chicago schools systems are products of broken, dysfunctional homes in which sex and all of its inherent intimacy issues are on display to all and sundry? I’m sure the citizens of Chicago and for that matter Illinois in general are quite proud of the over the top response to what is an endemic problem particularly in large metropolitan areas where the fabric of society has become so thin that the veneer of civilization has become like gauze. Soon it will be just like the jungle where animals prey upon the young, the old and the weak……..wait a minute…………
My second question is, does anyone really believe 5 year olds are mature enough to understand:
For the first time in Chicago, sex-ed instruction will cover sexual orientation and gender identity. Students will be introduced to terms and definitions associated with sexual identity, including those related to heterosexual and LGBT populations, in an effort to bring awareness, promote tolerance and prevent bullying, said the school board.
Under the new policy, the youngest students – the kindergartners — will learn the basics about anatomy, reproduction, healthy relationships and personal safety.
How do you explain reproduction to a 5 year old without going into the details? Do they really need to know the details at that age? What is a healthy relationship? To less than 5% of the population of the United State who are gay a heathy relationship bears little resemblance to what the other 95% think. Most major religions have doctrine condemning homosexuality. Why, because they hate homosexuals? No, those who hate others need no doctrine to excuse them. Most religions denounce sexual immorality (not just homosexuality) because it destroys the fabric of the family which is the building block of civilization. Those who live outside the societal mores want to have affirmation that they are “alright”. The reality is that without extreme medical assistance gay couples will never procreate and in order to propagate the species people must procreate. In the wild of course animals who exhibit same sex attraction do not mate and those genes are deleted from the gene pool. I do not say that as a judgement, it is simply fact.
Why would anyone responsible for the safety of children suggest they should be given information that they are not mature enough to either assimilate or understand? It’s not like they won’t act upon the information given them. After all we don’t teach 5 year olds to drive a car (just in case they should ever be in a situation where they might need to drive somewhere to safety or take someone to the hospital or police station). We don’t allow them to handle machinery or go to R or NC17 movies so they will know what to do incase they are ever captured by aliens or set upon by chainsaw murders or zombies. To me this whole idea smacks of child endangerment. It is irresponsible to expose children to things they are too young and too immature to understand. The fact that there are parents that are either incapable or too ignorant to shield their children from that which is inappropriate is a problem with the parents not the children. As far as bullying is concerned, there is no way to make someone accept something that is abhorrent to them but there are consequences to actions and punishment for that is acceptable.
I personally don’t care about another persons sexual preferences. I don’t go out of my way to flaunt my heterosexuality. I expect the same from others. I also don’t see the need for sex-ed in school. Those who experiment with sex will do so with or without instructions, they will not use condoms no matter how many times some educator puts one on a banana. The only way children are free of that kind of thing is to teach them from the beginning that human intimacy is sacred and not to be used lightly. That there is a place and time for it and that one must be both physically mature and mentally mature to handle the feelings and urges that accompany intimacy. That “marriage” is a sacrament entered into seriously and with deep conviction, not some game of chance where either side can get out when things get difficult. The family is the bedrock of civilization and the fabric of that institution is become more like gauze than canvas. Thanks to social engineering and government intrusion the family is under attack and the Vandals are winning. If we are not very, very careful we will become totally devoid of any feeling except that self-centered egotism.
5 year old being taught sex ed. It’s like handing you kid the keys to the car and telling them to drive to McDonalds and buy their own dinner. In this case the children are not even physically mature enough to put their feet on the gas and brake much less see over the steering wheel, and they aren’t emotionally mature enough to deal with the other drivers on the the road, the good ones, the bad ones and the criminally inept. The fallout from this social experiment is going to be disastrous and generation yet unborn (if they’re survive to be born) will suffer because of it.
All it takes for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing.
