Now, this is a subject that's near and dear to my heart. I already didn't think that school gave enough information on the subject of sex education. And in my highschool, the only class that said anything on the subject was biology which isn't even a required course. IN the 5th grade, we saw videos that were from the 60's. The girl's video was telling us the importance of caring for your kotex belt. My mom never even used a kotex belt! The teacher didn't even know what it was when the students asked him about it. And the guy's video mostly dealed with myths about masterbation. I can honestly say, I didn't learn a damn thing from sex ed in the 5th grade. 6th grade, I learned a little, but not much.
I honestly beleive that sex education should also cover, at least, a brief explanation on genetic problems that can occur with sexual organs. Warning signs on Prostate problems, Ovarian disorders and even Endometriosis (sp?). And for the female side of it, the only parts they even cover is basically: This is a vagina, it leads to the uterus, which is connected to the felopeon tubes, that the egg from the overy travels down once a month.
What about the rest of the stuff? There is a lot more to a vulva than just the vagainal canal... grrr....
Lets just kill underage kids who have sex with STDs instead of telling them how to prevent them, because no sex is the only thing we should be teaching kids.... Bull shit.
Sorry if I'm ranty, but this pisses me off. There is so much about the body that people should learn and I think it's stupid that the Government wants people to find this out on their own. Thank God I had parents that felt the need to explain things to me, but I know not everone has open minded parents or feel as comfortable talking to their parents as I do.
When I was helping run the GLBT club at UAA, we actually held seminars on sex education and people who weren't in the GLBT club or gay came to them because they wanted to learn more. I was amazed at the ammount of stuff people didn't know about their own bodies.
(I don't mean to be touchy, but I'm once again, really pissed off at the government)
