Sex ed.


Do you think it sounds sensible that sex education in UK schools “.. should be accurate and balanced”, that the subject should be “taught in a way that is appropriate to the ages of the pupils concerned and to their religious and cultural backgrounds and reflects a range of religious, cultural and other perspectives”, that it should “be taught in a way that endeavours to promote equality, encourages acceptance of diversity and emphasises the importance of both rights and responsibilities”?

Does that sound reasonable to you?  Is that a screamingly immoral or rabidly atheist agenda?

No?  Might it have the teeniest glimmer of common sense in it…?  Perhaps…?

You fool!  You weak-minded lapdog of Lucifer!  It’s an outrageously godless manifesto of sin!  It’s a one-way path to hell and damnation!  It’s designed solely to drive innocent children off the rails and have them all pregnant by the time they’re 15!

Personally, I think it sounds fine, but religious groups in the UK (mainly a big Christian one beginning with “C” operating from a very swanky HQ in Italy…) have kicked up such a howl of protest that the government have been forced to exempt so-called faith schools from this particular bit of blatantly Satanic doctrine.

God forbid (if you’ll excuse the pun) that sex education should be accurate and balanced, taught in a way that is appropriate to the ages of the pupils concerned and their religious and cultural backgrounds; that it should reflect a range of religious, cultural and other perspectives and be taught in a way that endeavours to promote equality, encourage acceptance of diversity and emphasise the importance of both rights and responsibilities.

I mean, who wouldn’t want their children to be taught lies and nonsense by scary dogmatic lunatics in dresses who’ve never actually had a sexual relationship, and whose textbook is a 2000-year old mishmash of made-up contradictory nonsense?

I’m going to demand that Millie and AmberG be taught maths by innumerate hunchbacks using nothing but the works of Aristotle and an abacus.
