We Are Not Doing Our Kids Any Favors by Teaching Them to Be Sexual Degenerates
Planned Parenthood, along with far-left organizations like the Human Rights Campaign and SIECUS are determined to make your 10-year-old more sexually aware than a 45-year-old porn actor. (Some of their "educators" may actually be 45-year-old porn actors.) Kids are facing two immediate problems: bullying and technology woes that lead to isolation and rage, and over-sexualization by educators who should know better. This is clearly our fault. We are the adults. And somehow, we adults allowed maniacs and perverts to take over what our children learn about sexuality. It's time for the adults to put a stop to it.
Using tech responsibly with restraint is something that must be learned. Handing a smartphone to an 8-year-old and saying "have fun!" is not an option. Two of my children, ages 12 and 8, are in the midst of facing technology dangers. It is a world filled with landmines for parents. I am not ashamed to say I need help. In talking with a friend with similarly aged girls, we both discovered how much we approve of slime videos but have banned pranks and Truth or Dare videos (that bring us the Tide Pod challenge and snorting condoms). You can't keep kids off technology totally. Technology is great, until it isn't, and learning how to self-police is a Herculean task. I have no idea how to do it (sorry if you were looking for answers). But I do know that it's going to take parents working together and sharing information when they find it. In our house, we limit screen time during the week but let up on the weekends (during winter) as long as chores are done. But when I see information like the Facebook post below, I want to pull the plug and go Amish.
These apps are being used by kids to hide pornography, spread rumors and torment others, chat with strangers, hook up for sex, and more. I looked up all of these apps and did not find Calculator%, Omegle, or Burn Book, but the rest of them are in the App Store.
That brings us to problem number two: the over-sexualization of children in public schools by Planned Parenthood and far-left organizations that have managed to get their obscene sex programs federally funded and inserted into the schools via "anti-bullying" programs. Instead of teaching these kids how to not gossip and spread rumors and how to respect one another, they're busy teaching them to have sex with one another in every conceivable way (including all the gay stuff). It's not enough to love our gay friends and accept them; we must now participate in gay sex by letting our kids experiment with gay fringe fetishes, like rimming and other indecent and dangerous sexual practices including BDSM and asphyxiation.
They're not kidding.
They want your kids doing this stuff because they claim "they're going to do it anyway so let's make sure they're safe." Except there's nothing safe about any of this stuff. My kids are NOT going to experiment with auto-erotic asphyxiation because I'm going to scare the crap out of them with the reality of what can happen to them using the popular examples of Michael Hutchence and this poor kid. That's what parents do. Parents are rightly paranoid about anything that can kill our kids—call us crazy! But my whole job is keeping them alive, first and foremost. My favorite app, Dumb Ways to Die, has opened up so many conversations with my kids about not dying an embarrassing and needless death. Not only do we not stick forks in toasters, but we don't stick our private parts in anyone or anything until we are married because it's equally dangerous. Sexuality is a powerful gift not to be given away carelessly or casually.
How does training children for sex work help them be nicer to one another? Will it stop them from using gossip apps? Or will this sexual free-for-all lead to more sexting, and more bullying, isolation, and rage? Minors who engage in meaningless casual sex are more likely to suffer from depression. Psychology Today reported on this fact in 2013: "A recent longitudinal study published in the Journal of Abnormal Psychology suggests that teenagers who engage in casual sex are more likely to suffer from depression than their peers who don’t engage in casual sex."
Yet these sex ed programs endorsed by the federal government (that we all pay for) not only show them how to engage in kinkier sex than Caligula could imagine but tell them they should be doing it in any way they want in order to be happy and fulfilled. It's simply a dangerous and damaging lie. Despite "safe sex" education, one in four female teens has an STD. This is not because there is not enough education about "safe sex" but because it's not very effective. Abstinence works every time it's tried, contrary to the lies Planned Parenthood tells. Do you know what Planned Parenthood does in the face of skyrocketing STD rates? They teach kids how to be unashamed of their STDs. There's even a cake for celebrating your herpes. Former Planned Parenthood volunteer Ella Dawson loves telling people all about it.
A few days shy of my 21st birthday, I woke up to find a cluster of painful red sores on my labia. I tried to convince myself I was having some sort of allergic reaction to a new pair of underwear, but Google-searching my symptoms pointed in one, very specific direction: an STD. This didn’t make sense, as I’d never had unprotected sex in my life. Plus, I wasn’t the sort of person STDs happened to. I was a Planned Parenthood volunteer, a sexuality studies major, and everyone’s go-to friend when they had questions about losing their virginity. How could I have caught something when I had always been so careful?
Well Ella, that's because condoms aren't safe and don't protect you from herpes. And boy am I sorry no adult in your sex ed class told you that to save you from the pain you are now experiencing. Because the adults failed you, you now have an incurable disease and have to struggle through relationships like this:
A soft-spoken and adorable nerd on OKCupid invited me out for drinks, but we parted ways when I brought up the fact that I'm herpes-positive on our third date. He apologized and said he had just gotten over chlamydia and wasn’t in a rush to gamble with his sexual health again."
It's a damned plague! I am sorry for her. This cannot be what she wanted for her life—trying to justify disease and social stigma. This is not the future we want for our children. We want them to go into their marriages healthy and whole and not covered in weeping sores and regret. Middle schoolers and teens are not emotionally mature enough to navigate the very adult consequences of sex. The organizations educating our kids have taken sex, the beautiful act that bonds married adults and creates families, and turned it into a carnival sideshow worthy of ridicule and disgust. It's shameful.
