Sex Education

In the late 1990s I received for whatever reasons a lot of questions from people who wrote in to get answers that sex-education in school and by various bureaucracies was and had been misleading them on.

In some cases, the misleading was obviously caused by ignorance, but in others, and especially when it was done by government officials high on the ladder, it was hard to avoid the impression that it was done deliberately. I have no idea why anyone would want to go out of their way to mislead, for example, kids in school about things that are matters of life and death, for the sake of indoctrinating children already at an early age to pursue sexual freedom.

At any rate, I had so many of those requests for information and there was so much misleading information out there, that eventually I posted an article on sex-education to help clear up some of the confusion for students as well as their parents.

The web page was quite popular for a while (as many as 80 page hits a day in 2007 -- the first year for which I have usage data for this web page) but it is no longer being looked up very often (only about four times a day). I guess that kids either do not care much about sex anymore or that perhaps, thanks to our feminist governments, they now know all they are supposed to know about sex.

However, it does not surprise me that we now have an epidemic of STDs. Perhaps our governments feel that, ideally, a healthy nation is one in which no one is married, everyone is promiscuous, and everyone has one or more STDs.

Hello, my name is Rosalie [last name not shown].  I am doing a research paper on teen sex for school.  I was wondering if you could get some of your ideas on the issue in[to an] e-mail so I could use it as a source for my paper.  Any ideas that you have about sex education (and the age it is started at), parents involvement, emotional readiness, contraceptives, STDs or anything else related would be great.  It would be of great help if you could take a couple of minutes to e-mail me.  I need information in e-mail form so I can use it as a primary source.  Thank you very much.

Much has been written about sex education.  For a glimpse into the politics and history of sex education, I recommend that you read "Kinsey: Crimes and Consequences," by Judith Reisman, Ph.D..  (See Excerpts)

I'll add a few general comments.  Sex education is being promoted primarily by people who are most often liberalists and who frequently have anti-family and pro-homosexual-rights feelings.  Believe it or not, Dr. Alfred Kinsey promoted it [1] (and SIECUS [2] still does) to further promiscuity, under the premise that it would reduce the incidence of STDs (sexually transmitted diseases), and that it would make for better marriages if people would be well-versed and experienced in sexual intercourse before marriage.[3]  Of course, that's insane.  The destruction of our families and the epidemic of STDs that followed should be more than enough proof that the sexual revolution caused more harm to society than many other things that befell mankind.[4]

The problem with the current trend in sex education is that it doesn't deliver what it promised, a better society.[5]  If we teach children to use condoms, we tell them in effect that it is all right to have sex.  We should therefore not be surprised that many children become promiscuous and thereby conceive children while they are still children themselves, or that they contract STDs.

Few children realize that condoms offer no protections at all against papilloma virus infections.  Nor do they realize that condoms offer very little protection against hepatitis C or HIV infections.  All three of these diseases are incurable and contribute, to varying extents, to early deaths.  To boot, condom failures are frequent, especially if latex condoms are used in conjunction with lubricants that contain oils. [5, 6, 9]

In the case of condom failure, the result is often a pregnancy.  After all, the purpose of sexual intercourse is to cause a child to be conceived.  Of course sexual intercourse feels good, but that is for no other reason than to ensure that people engage in it, so that children will be conceived.  However, how can we have a functioning society based on unregulated, promiscuous sexual activities?  Children may be capable of having sexual intercourse, but they are most definitely not capable of being very good parents, especially not in a society in which a record number of children who become parents at best don't have more than the support by half of their extended family — on account of growing up in single-mother families.  To discuss hormone therapy as a contraceptive is pointless.  It does nothing to prevent anyone from contracting STDs.

The biggest problem with the views promoted in sex education these days is that they don't stress the best and most effective method for the prevention of either pregnancies or STDs, that is to abstain or to remain chaste. [5, 6]

What is truly wrong with preserving one's virginity until one gets married?  What blessings did the liberalization of sexual morals bring us?  Are we truly better off with a very high rate of teen pregnancies, record numbers of out-of-wedlock births and epidemic rates of STDs?[4]  We all know what the answer to that is, but few people in the education system are willing to risk their careers by promoting logic that is politically incorrect.  To do so would bring them the wrath of the homosexual rights lobby which is busy teaching children, through the sex-education curriculum and in accordance to plan, that homosexuality is a valid alternative life style -- without teaching children about the risks to their lives that the "valid" homosexual life style causes.

Just the other day I heard someone make a very good comment that sums up my feelings quite nicely.  Your body is a gift, the greatest gift that you can make to anyone.  It is like a Christmas gift, in as much that few people will appreciate a Christmas gift that has been opened too many times already, let alone one that was damaged in the process. [7, 8]

Thanks for your interest, and all the best to you,

Notes:

  1. Kinsey: Alleged "Findings" — The Kinsey Model
    By Judith Reisman, Ph.D.

Kinsey's Alleged Basic "Findings"

All orgasms are "outlets" and equal between husband and wife, boy and dog, man and boy, girl, or baby - for there is no abnormality and no normality.

As the aim of coitus is orgasm, the more orgasms from any "outlet," at the earliest age - the healthier the person.

Early masturbation is critical for sexual, physical and emotional health.  It can never be excessive or pathological.

Sexual taboos and sex laws are routinely broken, thus all such taboos and sex laws should be eliminated, including that of rape and child rape, unless serious "force" is used and serious harm is proven.

Since sex is, can, and should be commonly shared with anyone and anything, jealousy is passé.

All sexual experimentation before marriage will increase the likelihood of a successful long-term marriage and venereal disease and other socio-sexual maladies will be reduced dramatically.

Human beings are naturally bisexuals Religious bigotry and prejudice forces people into chastity, heterosexuality and monogamy.

Children are sexual and potentially orgasmic from birth ('womb to tomb'); are unharmed by incest, adult/child sex, and often benefit thereby.

There is no medical or other reason for adult-child sex or incest to be forbidden.

All forms of sodomy are natural and healthy.

Homosexuals represent ten to thirty-seven percent of the population or more. (Kinsey's findings were always very fluid on this point.) Some educators have interpreted his findings by saying that only four to six percent of the population are exclusively heterosexual so the "heterosexual" bias in the U.S. should be eliminated.

[Two recently released study reports indicate that the rate of homosexuality in the population is likely far lower.  In one study of 1007 children followed from birth in New Zealand, "Fergusson et al found that, at age 21, the 28 classified as gay, lesbian or bisexual were significantly more likely to have had mental health problems than the 979 classed as heterosexual."  In the other study, involving a sample population of 6,537 men, Herrell et al found that only 120 reported any same-sex partners (1.8%). — WHS]

  1. Sex Information & Education Council of the United States (SIECUS)

  ...SIECUS's new leader, Dr. Mary Calderone, past medical director of Planned Parenthood, was the direct link between Kinsey's university-based research, Planned Parenthood's grassroots outreach, and SIECUS as a Resource Centre [operating] Specialized Programs to Distribute Information about Human sexuality [through] learned journals, research studies, training materials for health professionals and sample classroom curricula.
    — Kinsey: Crime & Consequences, p. 178

  1. Sexual Attitude Restructuring (SAR)

    SIECUS is the driving force for the promotion of the sex-education curriculum that is being promoted in our schools.  By now in the order of 200,000 teachers and sex educators have been indoctrinated directly through SIECUS-sponsored courses and materials.  Thereby SIECUS' ideology permeates all of the education system.   SAR is at the core of the ideology promoted by SIECUS.  That is basically a brainwashing technique -- a propaganda technique -- that inures people, teachers as well as students, to outrageous moralities and moral standards that will then become acceptable in their minds and replace established "stuffy" and "archaic" moral traditions.  Click on the URL shown above to obtain an appreciation of what is at play in the application of SAR.

  1. Post Kinsey  — The Fallout of the Sexual Revolution (graphs from Kinsey: Crime & Consequences)

  1. The Family Research council reports that with respect to condoms vs. abstinence, Colin Powell and George Bush have widely differing views.   Which views will prevail, those that promote "safe" sex (that is not so safe) or those that promote a healthy life style for children, so that they may live to a healthy ripe old age?

POWELL STRAYS FROM BUSH POLICY ON SEX EDUCATION, FRC SAYS

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Secretary of State Colin Powell's remarks on MTV Thursday in which he advocated condoms to protect against the spread of sexually transmitted diseases fly in the face of research data and are inconsistent with President Bush's policy to promote abstinence-based sex education, Family Research Council President Ken Connor said Friday. "Young people need to know the truth that the only sure way to protect themselves from the spread of life-threatening, sexually transmitted diseases is to save sex for marriage," Connor said.

MTV hosted Secretary Powell for a "Q & A" session with teens from around the world. In response to a question about HIV/AIDS, Powell said, "It's important that the whole international community come together, speak candidly about it, forget about taboos, forget about conservative ideas with respect to what you shouldn't tell young people about.

It's the lives of young people who are put at risk by unsafe sex - and, therefore, protect yourself....in my own judgment, condoms are a way to prevent infection - and, therefore, I support their use...among people who are sexually active and need to protect themselves."

Mr. Powell's comments are inconsistent with the stated position of the administration and with President Bush's increased funding for abstinence-based sex education programs. In 1999, George W. Bush told a teen abstinence group: "Abstinence is 100 percent certain to not only make sure that children avoid pregnancy, but it's 100 percent certain to make sure that children avoid disease," he said.

On the anniversary of Roe v. Wade, President Bush reiterated his support for funding abstinence programs in a statement to the March for Life participants.

"Sec. Powell's remarks are reckless and irresponsible," said Connor. "Can you imagine what Powell's response would have been to a soldier under his command who made public pronouncements contrary to his own? Further, they create the false sense of security among impressionable teenagers that condoms allow for 'safe sex.' They don't. They create the 'illusion' of safe sex, resulting in an epidemic of sexually transmitted diseases in this country. President Bush should repudiate Sec. Powell's comments and publicly exhort him for his irresponsible remarks."

Last year, the National Institutes of Health issued a report which found insufficient evidence that condoms protect people from the majority of sexually transmitted diseases.

According to the panel of 28 experts who assembled the report based on data from numerous studies, condom use can reduce the risk of gonorrhea for men and HIV transmission for men and women. But no one has any evidence that condoms prevent transmission of chlamydia (which can lead to infertility and tubal pregnancy), syphilis, female gonorrhea, herpes, chancroid (which can increase the chances of getting HIV), trichomoniasis, or human papillomavirus (the number-one cause of cervical cancer).

  1. Epidemic : How Teen Sex is Killing our Kids

By Dr. Meg Meeker
Townhall.com
Review by Johannes L. Jacobse

  1. Jill Cohen Walker, in BRAINWASHING THE CHILDREN . . . A GLOBAL EFFORT - Part 3 (May 16, 2006), puts that another way.

In its alleged quest for equality for women, the feminist movement fomented the destruction of the family (especially poor families) and the creation of a global harem via the destruction of morals. Women still (as in ancient empires) rely on their physical selves to bargain for the crown jewels. Look at the prostitution rings taking shape on college campuses across this nation. Modern women have evidently found a way to put a dollar value on their virtue; and once that virtue is sold, the merchandise is no different than a used car.

  1. What about male condoms and sexually transmitted diseases (STD's)?
    By American Pregnancy Association

A condom is the only means of birth control that provides any reduction in the transmission of sexually transmitted diseases. However condoms are not "Safe Sex," but rather "Safer Sex." According to the workshop summary, "Scientific Evidence on Condom Effectiveness for Sexually Transmitted Disease (STD) Prevention," July 2001, The National Institute of Health and the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases report:

  • Condoms provide no reduction in the transmission of the human papilloma virus (HPV) or Trichomonas vaginalis.
  • Syphilis transmission is reduced 29% for typical use. It is reduced 50 to 71% when condoms are used correctly 100% of the time.
  • Gonorrhea and Chlamydia transmission is reduced by approximately 50% even when condoms are used 100% of the time.
  • Genital herpes transmission is reduced by approximately 40%
  • HIV transmission is reduced by approximately 85% when condoms are used correctly 100% of the time.

Condoms help prevent the transmission of STD's by reducing the likelihood of partner exposure through genital contact or fluid secretions. Condoms only reduce the likelihood of exposure, they do not prevent exposure.

See also other sources of information relating to the escalating epidemic of STDs and what can be done about STDs and to curb the epidemic:

Note: Many pieces of advice often don't mention that sexual intercourse is not the only way by which STDs can be transmitted.  For example, virtually all STDs (and many other diseases) can and will be transmitted when intravenous drug users share needles, but that is not all. Improperly sterilized needles used in a doctor's offices, clinics and hospitals, for instance, are one of the major reasons for the spread of AIDS in Africa and other underdeveloped nations.
   It must also be stressed that the risk of contracting an STD it far greater with anal than with vaginal intercourse.  The rectum is designed for extrusion, not for intrusion and is therefore more likely to be an avenue by which STDs can and will be transmitted.  One out of two homosexual men contract an HIV infection, and oral sex isn't safe either.

Townhall.com: You won't read it in the papers

...A pledge is not an abstinence program. As for data on risky anal and or oral sex by so-called abstainers, those too were self-described pledgers, not participants in an abstinence program.

By contrast, the Journal of Adolescent and Family Health has just published a carefully crafted study of the Best Friends program and found that it does, in fact, deliver on its promise -- to promote abstinence from sex, drugs and alcohol among its school-age participants. [And, by extension, freedom from being infected with STDs and from having to experience unwanted or inconvenient pregnancies —F4L]

  • The "Fix" That's Destroying Education In America

Have no illusions that the problems with America's education system are national ones. Once you read Tom DeWeese's article and know who's behind "The Fix", you'll come to the conclusion that you know also why  "The Fix" is destroying education in all developed nations.  You'll then know as well why the current push for sex-education is such a large part of it.

However, don't just take my word for that.  Make sure that you see also the related Heritage Foundation's Backgrounder:
