I warned 7 years ago that Progressive sex ed is intended to destroy your child’s sense of physical inviolability and privacy. It’s gotten worse since then.
Sex and children have been in the news a lot lately, and I don’t just mean the endless stories of surprisingly pretty female teachers, many in their 20s and 30s, having sex with their middle school and high school students, both boys and girls (or just being too sexy). Bad as that is, there’s something worse. Instead of isolated incidents of horny, predatory women, Leftist culture is mounting a significant attack on your child’s sexuality.
A dispiriting article reporting on parents who took to YouTube to show the graphic ways in which they teach their elementary school aged children to masturbate helpfully sums up a series of other examples of Progressive sex ed, all of which is part of a concerted effort to sexualize children as early as possible:
Two notable attacks on the sexual innocence of children took place this week: Teen Vogue‘s disgusting promotion of “the right way to do” anal sex, and a popular YouTube video in which parents tell children about masturbation, complete with sex toys.
“So, sometimes people will say ‘playing with themself,’ or ‘jerking off,’ or ‘choking the one-eyed trouser snake,” a father tells his son, who looks to be about 8 years old. “Masturbating is when you touch your privates in different ways to make yourself feel good,” a mother tells two young ladies, who might be 8 years old and 10 years old.
The YouTube video flits backs and forth, showing five different parent-child groupings, with parents telling children about masturbation, including how-tos, discussions of how many times they masturbate, and sex toys. Many times, the parents mime the actions of sexual intercourse and masturbation to illustrate how dildos and other sex toys are used.
Many conservatives see videos like this one, and articles like the one in Teen Vogue, as blatant attempts to sexually corrupt children. “The left wants to turn your child into a sexual deviant,” commentator Matt Walsh warned at TheBlaze.
Unfortunately, it seems that much of that fear is well-placed. Parents have protested “graphic” sex ed classes for their kids. Bill Nye’s Netflix show featured a segment encouraging all sorts of sexual deviance. Oregon has an official sex guide for teens, written by teens. Last December, National Geographic put a nine-year-old transgender girl on the cover of a magazine marketed to children.
Last month, children as young as 5 years old were exposed to the sexual gyrations of a drag queen at a grade school talent show. Oh, and a Bloomington, Indiana, library is hosting an event this month where drag queens will read to children between the ages of 2 and 6.
Although the above examples of Progressive sex ad are disgusting and inappropriate, none of them surprise me. Indeed, as I wrote seven years ago at American Thinker, this type of Progressive sex ed is precisely what we can expect from a political party dedicated to a Borg-like effort to strip people of their individual identities and assimilate them into a tightly-controlled, monolithic state. Incidentally, you can see in the essay, which I reprint in its entirety below, that I made references to the then-nascent “transgender” movement that, like some carefully buried IED, is now dominating our cultural conversation.
