The Negative Effects of Early Childhood Sex Education
HB-13-1081, passed last year in the Colorado State Assembly offers Colorado schools grant money to include “comprehensive” human sexuality education for all children, K-12. One must wonder whether the Democrats who pushed this bill have any understanding at all of early-childhood development, and how government-run sex education programs often serve as how-to manuals for juvenile sex predators.
In 2013 the Democrat-controlled Colorado Legislature passed a new School Finance Act which includes the toxic HB-13-1081. This act, despite fevered opposition from Republicans, passed along party lines. I can’t tell you when Democrats became the party of sexual perversion, but I believe it was sometime in the late fifties. The old guard LBJ, JFK, RFK, et al, who limited their sexual deviations to mere serial infidelity, gave way to the man-haters, lesbians, fetishists, homosexuals, bisexuals, zoosexuals, and all other sexual aberrations that now populate the Liberal mainstream. It has taken decades of militant feminist indoctrination in America’s colleges to get us here, but here we are. Thank you Liberalism for ensuring that our 4-6 year-old public school kiddies will know all about condoms and Plan B pills, self exploration, abortion, all their potential sex partners, and all the wonderful options they have for their own sexual identity. From Curious George to condoms on cucumbers in one generation, made possible by Democrats.
Babies are born innocent, but they learn to do the things to which they are exposed. A generation or two ago the ethos of innocence dominated American culture. Children were shielded from the complications of adult sexuality. When I was a child, growing up in a conservative family in the 1960s, sex was scary! And it’s good that sex was a frightening concept to my very young self. When you consider the physical, emotional, spiritual, and mental implications of sex, it should be obvious that it is not territory for kids. Even fully developed adults find love and sexuality daunting and often painful. Children are not prepared, no matter how many times they practice putting a condom on a banana, view pictures of genitals of the opposite sex or read “Heather has Two Mommies” or “Daddy is a Drag Queen,” to handle the ramifications of sexuality. But because children can feel sexual, and have strong emotional needs for love and nurturing, they sure as hell can be exploited–or become exploiters–long before their minds, spirits, and emotional regulation are sufficiently developed to handle to powerful impulses brought on by early sexualization.
Since evidence doesn’t matter to Liberals, they won’t care that as sex education has been injected into elementary school curricula, and concepts of God and personal morality have been banned, the Juvenile Justice system has been filling to the brim with young–sometimes VERY young–sex offenders. These offenders are generally younger and more violent than in years past, and girls are increasingly committing sexually aggressive crimes.
Early sexualization is identified as one of the contributing factors to the burgeoning problem of juvenile sex offenses. Juvenile sex crimes are an area of social decline that can be correlated to inappropriate and excessive exposure to sexual images and activities at young ages. Despite this, Leftists, especially the Feminist lobby, have pushed for decades to make explicit sexuality instruction mandatory in public schools. But success, when measured against the offerings in American universities and colleges, is a measure of perversion that past generations could not have imagined. At the end opposite Kindergarten in the education process, Liberalism has produced a plethora of absurd major fields couched as euphemistic “women’s studies.” LGBTQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer) Studies, Feminist Thought, Gender in a Global Context, Queer Theory, and Variations in Human Sexuality are but a few.
Missing from these modern study areas are courses on nuclear family, the importance of fathers, morality, and personal responsibility. The “revolutionary” ideas of Feminist professors and militant homosexual activists, though widely accepted and touted in popular culture and elite educational circles, are simply inchoate contrivances designed to satisfy a generation of unregulated, frustrated, and commitment-averse knuckle-head young people.
A September 2013 report cites that cases of rape at Harvard have almost doubled in only two years. These are the early sexualization chickens coming home to roost in their coops of origin. When shocking and frightening trends overflow the Juvenile Justice system and pop up on progressive campuses, Liberalism, which embraces nebulous theories of human nature and behavior yet rejects the tried and true absolutes of Judeo-Christian doctrines, is simply reaping what it has sown.
There is no law to guide those who stubbornly cling to the failing ideas vomited out by the American Left. The only cure for the moral implosion we’re now experiencing lies in those precepts Liberals has battled for years; traditional families, abstinence from sex before marriage, personal morality, chastity, and the God who instituted them all as His law. The Juvenile Justice system can process, house, and even try to rehabilitate young sex offenders, but until there is a revival of godliness and morality in the United States, there will be no reversal of this catastrophic trend.
