Keep it Out by SionnaDehr Keep it Out by SionnaDehr
*sigh*
For some stupid reason people think that little kids (especially little kids) need to have their innocence taken away and replaced with knowledge about sex. I'm sorry but little kids don't need to know what goes on in a heterosexual's bedroom or a homosexual's bedroom. People who think that they do, are delusional and need to get their asses kicked to the curb and some idea of common decency instilled in their brains.
The first thing I learned about concerning the reproductive organs was the fact that I was going to end up having a menstrual cycle sometime or later. Even then, I didn't fully understand that and for four years after that class I was afraid of taking a shower and suddenly having blood just gush everywhere. I was ten when I went through that class.

The class barely served a purpose.

I didn't learn about what a vagina was until I was fifteen in a sexual purity class that my Christian School offered. They taught us about our bodies and, well, what basically happens when you have sex and the chances of getting STD's AID's and pregnancy even with the use of protection and birth control. We learned about the psychological side effects of abortion and the lot. In fact, we were told what we needed to know and what we did with that information was totally up to us.

I was in high school when my school taught me what I needed to know. By then, I felt ready. By then, I understood what it all was for. I got it.

Elementary kids and Middle Schoolers can't always handle that information. In fact, why are we encouraging young kids to have sex and teaching them about it when they should have better things to do? I mean, why aren't they getting more exorcize? Why aren't we teaching them more about health and the benefits of health? Why aren't we allowing them to keep busy through application of different things? Why can't we let kids be kids?

I'll tell you why. Because society today has made finding your "soulmate" more important above anything else. Society has made sex, "love", and emotions more important then reason, thinking, and finding other ways to not be bored. Everything is all about finding the right guy or girl, or who has had sex with so many partners? TV, Music, and even books have made that the most important thing above everything else and has turned our society into a bunch of weak wishy-washy sheep driven by emotion and sexual desire.

That is what life is all about these days and I say bullshit. People should keep this stupidity out of elementary and middle schools and only tell the kids what they need to know when they need to know it. Or, maybe schools should stop being made to so the parent's jobs and the parents should start parenting again?

Keep sex out of the younger grade schools and put it where the "mature" teenagers can handle it (of course, I use mature very loosely).

You are an idiot. In my state, due to lack of proper sex education, there were girls at my school pregnant! We were taught about sex in 7th Grade and it has (hopefully) saved a lot of uf from making the wrong choice and getting pregnant. When I was in 6th grade, there was a pregnant sixth grader! She was STILL a CHILD!

Elementary maybe, talk about puberty at most because it happens between 4th-5th for many. Middle school, no. Sex ed needs to be in middle schools. There was no sex ed in the middle school I was at. Everyone either learned about it from parents, learned from the internet, or didn't learn anything at all, and there was at least 6 pregnant middle schoolers. 3 of them were SIXTH GRADERS.

"In fact, why are we encouraging young kids to have sex and teaching them about it when they should have better things to do?"

Sex ed is NOT encouraging sex. It's teaching them about it, and how to be safe if they DO decide to have sex. It tells them how to properly use protection, so if they decide on their own to have sex. It's sex education, not sex encouragement. It's strictly there to teach the dangers of sex, how to use protection so if they do have sex, about STDs and STIs, pregnancy, etc. 

Face it, whether sex ed is in schools or not, teens will have sex. Which is better, knowing about it and how to have safe sex and use protection, or knowing absolutely nothing about protection and getting pregnant?

"Or, maybe schools should stop being made to so the parent's jobs and the parents should start parenting again?"

It took my mom nearly a year to finally talk to me about it. What I've seen on forums, even what my mom had said, it's a hard topic for a parent to discuss with their kid. They either don't think there kid is ready for that topic or mature enough, or don't know how to talk to it

When my friend was in 6th grade, she went to an academy.
Everybody was already pervy over there.
There was even a pregnant 6TH GRADER,
I mean, it's not confirmed but my friend told me she was getting fatter and the teachers started treating her more nicely.
Also there was a rumor going around the academy that she was pregnant but we never knew for sure.

Agree. They're not old enough, having sex at a young age can damage organs and can make you sick because you haven't hit puberttyy or whatever .-.

Elementary schools? Yes, the kids there are much too young to be taught about sex. But I disagree where middle school kids are concerned - by that time, they've hit puberty and have all the weird stuff going on with their sexual organs. Those guys need to be educated about sex, all the pros and cons, before they experiment themselves and wind up as the fourteen-year-old waltzing into an abortion clinic.

Well maybe not elementary. But middle school aren't they teenagers? I think at 12 or 13 it's good to start talking about puberty at least so no one is freaking at their weird body changes at least. That is not so bad I would think.

Emotion is not the be all and end all, but it's not like it doesn't mean jack shit either. Emotions are primal parts of our psyche, yes, but they are survival techniques and intrinsic warning signs that were very much valid when we were out in the wild ages ago, and now in society they still apply. Gut feelings matter. Anyways, if emotions were not so great for humans, why haven't we evolved out of the use for them?

Holy shit I love you. I agree with everything you said.

I'm glad I didn't sign up for sex ed in 7th grade :)
