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).

Okay, I see where you're going with this, but I disagree. While I do believe that a 1st grader should NOT, under and circumstances, learn about this, but a 5th grader who is going through/ will go through puberty should learn about that. In middle school, children, such as I, a 6th grader, will have to learn about it too. Now, if the teacher is showing porn to the kids, that's bad. If they're showing it to someone who'd too young, that's bad. Those things, and things like that are unacceptable, and disgusting. Have a wonderful day!

All the liberal arguments defending the subject of 4 year olds learning about the reproductive system and sexual relations on here make me rofl :XD: I bet half of you are too young to know what you're even flapping ya lips about. You're all such trash bags that are so full of shit, even the local dump wouldn't recognize the stench.

This is my opinion, so don't get all butthurt like you're a three year old. If you easily get offended, then ignore my comment completely.

PART ONE (the good side of sex)
There is nothing wrong with sex. It's a form of bonding between two or more adults. It shows trust (letting their partner see them nude), and how much they love each other (making them feel pleasure). It's a natural activity, everyone will most likely do it when they grow up. Why shame it? It's what all animals do. It's not only just for pleasure, it's also proven useful that if you're married and you and your partner have agreed to raise a child.

PART TWO (the bad side of sex)
Children might try it with their friends out of curiosity. Some can get pregnant and some can't. In case they can, try to not mention it in front of them.

Sorry, but no matter how much people will protest, people will still do it. You're basically saying "even though we know our children are going to have sex, we can't accept the fact that they are growing up, so we should ban sexual education from our schools." Kids will have no idea what to do during sexual intercourse, they will think that ejaculation won't make a female pregnant, they won't know there is such thing as an STD, they will think it is okay to rape, put random stuff in their vital regions such as: Leaky pens, pill bottles, jars, cups, candles, highly toxic substances, etc..

It does sound exaggerated, but it is possible. Don't teach about abstinence, because it just wastes time, and says "sex is bad, and you should feel bad." By the way, talking about men wasting their seed, sperm will die in just a couple days so new sperm can be created. Keeping sperm in a male too long can damage his health, I actually see it as a bit of sexism towards men. Why is it tolerable for women to have their periods in religion (Every time a woman has her period, an egg is released), yet, it is forbidden for a man to ejaculate outside of a woman (If fertilization was to take place, the rest of the sperm would die, and only one would get in the egg, so technically, the sperms that did not reach the egg will die and over 10 million or so sperms will be "wasted")?

That being said, where is your point? That sex is too taboo for kids? It may be for one, but that does not mean that it has to be for others.

I'm okay with appropriate sexual education being taught to elementary and middle schoolers.   An example of appropriate would be teaching students about Good touch Bad Touch.

As a teacher I use that method with my 5th grade classes so they know that if someone touches them in a way thats inappropriate they need to find a trusting adult.   Most cases of child abuse, and child sexual assault occur between the ages of 6-12 sometimes younger.  This is long before children are typically given sex ed.

That's why I don't think it inappropriate to teach children about good and bad touch so that they know how to protect themselves from all the perverts that are out there waiting to hurt their innocence.

Ithink, that perhaps it shouldn't be a big thing, but mentioned subtly, like I don't we should be teaching 7 year old about condoms but we should be teaching them about their own bodies, nothing dirty about someones body and then like teach them more as they get older. Like when I was about 13 I kept getting bambarded with diffrent sex ed lessons and stuff I'd never heard off and it confused me so much. People think there is one "sex talk" but no, it's little talks in sections. If they are old enough to be asking, they are old enough to know.

One of the only things society knows is sex. Heck, society is becoming more corrupt the more into the future we get. That's the same case when it comes to teaching children about sex. The more into the future, the younger kids get when they learn, resulting younger teen pregnancies. The only thing besides sex is drugs in society, and i knew someone who knew a 9 year old that SMOKED POT! But seriously, society literally WANTS to become worse and worse. It's obvious as well as sad. In fact, there's gonna be sometime in the future where I bet children not even in third grade will be pregnant. When I think about it, this could be a conspiracy. Also, sorry I got off topic in part of this.

Theres nothing wrong with having children outside of marriage. Marriage is too expensive for many people, & I'm personally glad my sister & I were born out of wedlock since my mother & father's relationship soon turned abusive afterwards. If they were married, he would've used this to abuse us further I'm certain. Marriage can & has been used as a tool for abuse.

You're wrong. Dead wrong. You think its all about the money, but it is not. People think that marriage is "expensive", when they don't even realize why this God-created union (which is created for one man and one woman) is beautiful. And doesn't the Bible warn about fornication? Yes it does. And yes, there is a problem with out-of-wedlock pregnancies. And you know something else? If men had kept their pants zipped, and women kept their legs closed, there wouldn't be out-of-wedlock pregnancies, and families would be a lot more stabler.

And speaking of abuse, here is a list of what will build or crumble down a marriage, before you jump to that conclusion:  What can build/crumble a marriage (UPDATED)A bride and groom being joined together as husband and wife is certainly not a big joke here. Once they enter into one, this is where they begin building a foundation on marriage, which can either strengthen or weaken it.
A Solid Marriage
There are very essential and strong attributes that build a firm solid marriage that will last, including:
    · True genuine love - One of the most essential aspects of a solid marriage, especially when choosing your own husband/wife. As Christians we are ought to be patient in all things, even in the issue of finding the right husband/wife. All these so-called shortcuts like dating sites and getting a boyfriend/girlfriend are the tools that the devil uses to draw us away from God. Also, purity before marriage is important in this day and age, and we must remember that our bodies is the Temple of the Holy Spirit and not some show-wardrobe for everyone to mess about with, and let's not forget that th

Don't shove your religion on me thank you. Don't assume others believe the same things you do.

Also, Nice bit of slut-shaming there. Exactly how are the existence bastard kids like myself a problem pray tell?

And I still stand by what I said about marriage being expensive. Weddings cost here in the west. Some people just cannot afford it.

I don't see how that post you linked disproves what I said about marriage being used as a tool for abuse. While I do agree with many of its points, I don't see how it discredits the fact that abuse still happens in marriages. And the fact that they're still used in many parts of the world to prevent the abuse victim from leaving their abuser.

Well, sex is all over the media and if they aren't taught about it in a clear, unbiased, and cohesive way, they'll start trying it out for themselves or live life not knowing what's up with what goes on with their bod. Proper sex ed can teach effective birth control methods so that no one suffers the consequences if they decide to do it anyway.
PS, bisexuals, pan, asexual, and omnisexual people exist.

I grew up with horses. I saw at a very young age my mom breeding horses every year (I wouldn't stay inside, I wanted to understand/see what was going on). I knew where babies came from (used to love looking at Lennart Nilsson's book "A Child is Born", and "From Conception to Birth: The Drama of Life's Beginnings" by (Dr.s') Roberts Rugh, Richard Einhorn, and Landrum B. Shettles), and I knew that sex was to be shared only in marriage and to respect it. Most kids aren't taught to respect sex, yet it's extremely powerful and should be treated with care, not casually like it usually is.

If I asked questions, my mom answered, but never more than what I wanted to know. And you answer the questions age appropriately. Usually a child's question is going to be somewhat age appropriate, simple and straight forward. ;) Meet 'em where they're at, but there's certainly no need to teach them HOW to have sex. Teach respect, not technique. -_- It needs to be parents to teach, NOT school teachers, but apparently being a parent in the court of "sex ed" is no longer culturally appropriate. :roll:

Teaching it in middle school is a good idea. Majority of the people in my school have had sex some time in middle school, and currently, I'm the only virgin girl in my class. :stare: My school has their own "sex ed" which is basically telling us that sex is wrong, and we should never do it or we're gonna get STDs right off the bat. Glad I never paid attention, my parents taught me about sex when I hit puberty, I never learned about it much because I had to do home school stuff up until after my freshman year of high school.

Sex ed DEFINITELY needs to be taught in middle school! Are you nuts?! :stare:

That mentality is how several of my niece's classmates had already lost their virginity at 12 years old and were pregnant at 13 and 14 years old! Kids already know a lot about sex WAY before high school because of movies, television, and their peers. Avoiding the subject won't make them NOT have sex any more than addressing the subject WILL make them have sex. Teens are more likely to NOT have sex if they're truly educated/informed about it.

No matter what the age, I think it's vitally important that kids NOT be ashamed of their bodies or sexuality. That isn't healthy for them in puberty, their teen years, OR as an adult. That being said, though:

Elementary school aged children need to be taught about sex by their parents when they ask about sex, and the answers need to be truthful, frank, and only go as far as what the child asked about. You being afraid of gushing blood from your eventual first period wasn't due to being taught too young, it was more likely because you weren't taught enough. There are plenty of companion books out there for parents to properly teach their tweens about imminent puberty.

Middle school kids ABSOLUTELY need some form of sex ed, specifically education about their bodies, how they work, what changes they are experiencing, how sexual intercourse works, how pregnancy does AND doesn't happen (i.e. yes, you CAN get pregnant your first time, no, you CAN'T get pregnant from a toilet seat, etc.), the OTHER different risks that come with sexual activity like HIV, STDs, STIs, and the importance of protection.

Moreover, the mental and emotional side effects/consequences of becoming sexually active need to be addressed as well because that is basically NEVER covered, even in high school sex ed.

Those same lessons need to be repeated in high school, in more detail and more graphically when it comes to pregnancy and STDs/STIs. They should cover contraceptives, too. The different kinds, how they work, how they're used, and with a stress on the fact that none of them are 100% effective.

The fact that you received a "Sexual Purity" class in high school is bothersome in that I really do think the morality of sex should stay out of the classroom and be the responsibility of parents. Sex ed in the classroom should be just that: education. Just the facts, plain and simple. If parents want to teach their kids that their bodies, urges, and sexual behavior in and of itself is shameful or "impure", that's up to them.

IMO, there's a delicate balance of teaching kids the importance of and risks associated with sexual activity, encouraging them to wait until they're ready (and preferably until marriage or at least until you are with the person you plan on marrying if that's your moral belief), and making sure they know — IF they choose to be sexually active — the importance of and HOW to practice safe sex. Sex shouldn't be made out to be dirty or shameful but rather the important gift that it is.

While I would do all of the above as far as encouraging my teen to wait, I would also want him/her to be comfortable enough to come to me with concerns/questions, and know that if they DO choose to become sexually active, they can come to me in order to be SAFE about it (although with additional thorough urging to NOT be active yet) without being demonized or slut-shamed. It's when kids HIDE that behavior that bad things happen.

If your teen wants to have sex, nothing is going to stop them. It would be more important to me for my teen to be educated and safe than ignorant and catch an STD/STI or — God forbid — end up being a teenage parent. There's a reason why states that require comprehensive sex ed have markedly lower teen pregnancy rates than states that are "abstinence-only".

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!

Agreed. Not talking about it doesn't keep kids from having sex. It just makes them have it stupidly. When it comes to sex, ignorance isn't bliss. It's dangerous.

When my niece was in middle school there were girls losing their virginity in the school bathroom stalls at TWELVE YEARS OLD. More than one of them was pregnant by the time they were 13.

I do not understand why in God's name ANYBODY would want sex ed to NOT be taught in middle school. That's the most critical age for it if you ask me! :stare:

Luckily, she was a senior, and didn't give birth until a month after she graduated.
