A while back we heard about the United Nations pact that would prohibit parents from choosing their children’s religion. Now the UN is issuing another dystopian proposal, a sex-education curriculum that would teach children as young as five about masturbation and “gender roles, stereotypes and gender-based violence.”
And those are just two elements in a 98-page report issued by the UN’s Economic, Social and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) and which includes curricula for children between the ages of 5 and 18. Joseph Abrams at FoxNews reports, writing:
Under the U.N.’s voluntary sex-ed regime, kids just 5-8 years old will be told that “touching and rubbing one’s genitals is called masturbation” and that private parts “can feel pleasurable when touched by oneself.”
. . . By the time they’re 9 years old, they’ll learn about “positive and negative effects of ‘aphrodisiacs,” and wrestle with the ideas of “homophobia, transphobia [prejudice against transsexuals] and abuse of power.”
At 12, they’ll learn the “reasons for” abortions — but they’ll already have known about their safety for three years. When they’re 15, they’ll be exposed to direct “advocacy to promote the right to and access to safe abortion.”
As to the last point, UNESCO promotes “the right to and access to safe abortion” for everyone over 15 years of age.
Well, now it’s clear why the UN doesn’t want parents to be able to choose their children’s religion. I mean, we wouldn’t want to impose values on the kids, after all.
The UNESCO report is entitled “International Guidelines for Sexuality Education” and is co-authored by a sociologist named Doug Kirby and one Nanette Ecker, a sex educator at the Nassau County chapter of Planned Parenthood, and they and its other boosters would claim that it’s needed to help combat AIDS. Yet it’s hard to see how this is anything but a sales pitch.
How will teaching children about masturbation, transphobia, the “therapeutic” effects of abortion, and the “gender” agenda reduce the spread of HIV?
In point of fact, even the theory that widespread condom use — something hailed by libertines as a veritable panacea — reduces the incidence of AIDS is full of holes (read “Harvard Academic: Pope is Right about Condoms“).
Yet the main problem with this sex-education proposal, as with them all, is not in the details but in the concept of sex education itself. As time wears on, we teach children more and more about sex at younger and younger ages, yet the effect is the precise opposite of that intended: sex-related social ills seem to increase commensurately with the carnal knowledge children are given. As to this, just consider that while the out-of-wedlock birthrate was only 3.8 percent in 1940, today it is 40 percent.
