I wanted to comment on the recent front page article on folks wanting to stop sex education. I grew up here, and when I did, we had the standard, physical mechanics of sex education. So no one talked about STDs or pregnancy or any other stuff.
Didn’t seem to stop the good or bad girls, or boys. And I still don’t understand why if we don’t acknowledge what is a human desire why we think it will change what has never changed. We are biologically built to want to have sex in our pre-adult and adult years. It’s natural. And what better than to have folks talk about what it is, how we feel, and making better choices based on what is there. God knows this.
It’s so strange that we don’t believe that we must not give students a good education about something so natural. If we don’t, and there are indisputable stats on this, we don’t arm them with what they need to choose to not have sex. Because we all know that which we deny will raise up in us.
So let’s just let God and education together let students make good choices. And some parents are uneducated, too, so why leave it to them? We shouldn’t be so afraid. If we believe God takes care of us, why not believe he takes care of us in all the ways he should? With our sexuality intact and with our morals taken care of.
