    When I was in sixth grade they didn’t use any of those they tried scare tactics. They told us about Honeymoon death, sever allergic reactions to latex and sheep skin, plus STD statistic. My parents just shoved medical and psychology books in my hands.

    Every religion I’m aware of has strong beliefs regarding sex or sexuality. These beliefs involve anything from masturbation, fornication and adultery to gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender issues to incest, bestiality, pedophilia and even rape. Some religions are very restrictive about sexual behavior and others go as far as encouraging people to have sex whenever, where ever, however and with who or whatever they want.

    Whether you’re religious or not, it’s easy to see that sex and sexuality are highly religious issues. As such and in keeping with a separation of church and state I feel that sex education in public schools should be very limited. It should focus merely on anatomy and physiology. It should cover the physical makeup of the sex organs, how they function, and the process of pregnancy from fertilization to maturity. STDs should be taught separately with classes about other diseases like colds, flues, etc.

    Public schools should not go into details regarding when to have sex, how to have sex, who to have sex with, what behaviors and or lifestyles are socially or morally acceptable, and how to prevent the consequences of these behaviors. Public schools are not the place for learning the who’s, what’s, when’s, where’s and how’s of sex. It should not be the right or responsibility of the school board or local, state or federal government to dictate religious/moral beliefs and values regarding sex or sexuality.

    This right and privilege should belong to parents. Parents should have the right to choose what to teach, when to teach it, and from what religious/moral angle. Parents who don’t feel comfortable teaching their children about sex could delegate that right/responsibility to church groups, private instructors, community groups, etc.

    If we reach a point in our society that governments and school boards know and care about children more than their own parents do, pregnancy and STDs will be the least of our worries.

    I am the mother of three young girls, and when the time comes I want the most comprehensive and informational sex education class that it is possible for them to have.
    It was shown in a huge study published just a few months ago that preaching abstinence does NOT WORK, but that the more real, factual, biology based information that kids got, the more responsibly they behaved.
    Leaving sex ed to the parents is just plain stupid, considering how stupid so many people are. That kind of thinking is the cause of the population explosion. Where are the most children born? in the countries with the least education. Furthermore, if it’s your PARENTS telling you not to have sex, you are going to disobey them for that reason alone. But if it’s an outside source giving you unbiased information, you are more likely to consider it. It just stands to reason.
    The right-wing reactionary repressive religious evangelical prudes out there are the big pushers of abstinence. They are doing their best to ignore the study I mentioned above, or trying to discredit it somehow. But the real truth is that just preaching abstinence and safety simply is not an effective way to handle adult sexuality education.
    That’s straight talk for you.
