What I am amazed with is HOW NAIVE people think young people are in this day and age of the internet lol.... Truth is, your kids have seen things you couldn't have even imagined when you were their age.. Like lets be real..

Parents are more scared than the kids. And funnily enough, they're also the ones acting like kids.

Were a significant number of children home today? If I found out as an adult that my parents kept me from school like this I would be pissed. "We didn't want you to be educated about sex, so we thought no education at all was our only option."

I can barely understand the arguments he's making. He's all over the place.

Exactly what you said it wasn't, it mentioned homosexual sex briefly as another kind of sex you sometimes don't hear about but that is okay. What it was actually encouraging was not homosexual sex, but masturbation, and more generally that it's okay to explore your own body and sexuality while coming of age and discovering yourself as a sexual being, as we all did. It may have been a bit too sex positive and to the point for some parents, but I see nothing objectionable about that, I wish someone had been that upfront with me, I had no idea what masturbation was, what I was doing, that any other people did it, and I felt very ashamed. I wished someone had given me guidance like this, it would have made growing up easier and healthier.

You're right, there is a lot of stuff out there for kids to see, specially on the Internet. That is why I believe a curriculum like this is very much needed.

I think a lot of people can probably relate to what you're saying. I agree, kids need guidance on these matters. Obviously Parents play an important role, but for many people these subjects are not openly talked about. What better place to learn about these things than in school.

I'm starting to hear some anti gay bigotry with some of the interviews I'm seeing.

Bloody hell.

Yup, their going to just learn from Porn. Then they are going to be really disappointed when they realize it is super difficult to give a woman that many orgasms.

Lets not fool ourselves to think that it boils down to anything beyond that. It is most likely the driving factor.

Where's Art Linkletter when you need him?

An experiment with a group of adolescents in a room all chatting and texting thinking they're not being overheard, would have these same parents crapping in their drawers over how much sexual info familiarity these kids are further ahead of the curve than they were.

Sometimes it takes a contentious item like this to highlight by just how much people have failed to advance in critical thinking skills without prejudice or bias.
