In response to Caroline Farrow: Sex lessons for infants are a cultural Marxist assault on the family, General Jack D.Ripper wrote:
These sex education lessons sound hilarious more than anything. The idea of teacher standing there talking about how sex organs work, how to put a condom on, or how boys should approach girls, not “put their hands on them” and all this kind of thing, is just hilarious. Now we’ve got transgenderism thrown into the mix too, so we can all have a rip-roaring laugh at the idea of boys dressing up in skirts, knickers and make-up.
As the article points out, it’s the family set-up at home and the behaviour of the parents that will shape children’s attitudes to sex more than anything. I’d encourage kids to just treat sex education for what it is, that is, a huge joke, worthy of nothing more than laughter and ridicule. Parents can use this as an opportunity to get their children to think about why a government would want to teach them this stuff and try to control their behaviour in sexual situations, and recognise that that is an attempt at a gross intrusion into children’s personal lives. That’s the more worrying aspect of this that kids should be aware of.
