In the Ottawa media, some protestors have told the media they are thinking of moving their families to Quebec over the sex ed.

Which has to be one of the first times in living memory that people have actually talked about going from Ontario to Quebec to get away from sexual permissiveness!

Please explain how any of that is not normal.

I have no idea what the big deal is. Any kid that is not blind, deaf and dumb is exposed to sex/ sexuality and realted topics through tv, magazines and the world around them. I totally think kids are way more of aware of these issues then parents of even the most sheltered child thick they are. If you have strong opinions of certain things then express that with your kids at home. I grew up in the family that would never in a million years talk about topics related to sex and sexuality and went to a religious school. It would have been way more beneficial to know about the details before actual trial and error. Not sure if I am a fan of the idea that ignorance is bliss on this topic. I would rather have the topics be brought up in a neutural/ fact based environment then to have "the talk" with my own kids.

I was in Toronto this weekend and literally couldn't finish my streetcar trip yesterday evening, nor cross the street in a dignified way because of these clowns and their protest march.

Who would these "clowns" be? And since when do people you don't agree with not have the right to protest?

The clowns are the protestors, and sure, everyone has the right to protest, but some things are just so ridiculous that I can't support them.

When did you attend this "religious school" - the 1920s? Most parents nowadays drew up during the 1980s and 1990s, and the youth of that time were growing up in an already highly sexualized environment and I somehow doubt that they as parents would suddenly become oblivious to the issues facing their children. So the real problem here is not the fact that parents nowadays don't know how to talk to their children or want to keep them in a state of "blissful ignorance". It's the fact that The State wants to wants to impose a set of values and engage in social engineering. So while The State expects parents to feed, clothe, house, and protect their children, It considers parents too stupid (or ideologically backward) to "properly" to teach their children about responsible sexual behaviour. It's funny how if what The State is doing were under the auspices of religion, the people would be bleeting about seperation of Church and State; but if it's under the auspices of secular leftist ideology, there's no concern about infringements on personal liberties and rights. Ontario is quickly becoming a Nanny State. It seems to me that many people are deceived by the fact that the governing party is the Liberals, which many people complacently believe are moderate centrists. But Wynne and many of her cronnies are redical leftists very much intent on steering Ontario towards becoming a Socialist state.
