My Sex Education Experience
Myself

Posted on 08/11/2004 4:13:13 PM PDT by AVNevis

If you can believe it or not, Planned Parenthood teaches the sex education classes at my middle school. (Yes, the school board actually allows an activist organization to teach sex ed.) It was amazing some of the things they said. They actually let us know that sex before 18 was illegal. However, then they told us not to worry about breaking it because the police will never catch you. As the week went on it actually seemed like they were promoting juvinile sex. The instructor gleefully talked about how to put a condom on. She explained how flavored condoms could make oral sex a more enjoyable experience. I had to practically force her to say that lying to your parents about sex was a bad thing(I did this by asking her if lying to your parents about sex was a bad thing during annonymous question time.) Even then she didn't seem too sincere. If you have a middle or high school student in the Sacramento Unified School District or many other school districts, this is what your kids are learning. Please, for their sake, give them a good talk about not having sex until marrage before this is taught at your child's school.

P.S. I am planning on starting a Conservative Club at my High School sometime this upcoming year after I get to know the school(I'm an incoming freshman.) Getting PP out will certainly be a priority

Thank you for the eye opening account, and welcome to FR. Good luck with starting your conservative club.

By the way, have you discussed what was taught in class with your parents? Perhaps they could complain and get this person from PP out of your school.

Just out of curiousity, how old do you think the gal was that was telling you these things? (I'm betting she is unmarried and under 25)

Reminds me of Gary Aldridge in Unlimited Access. He said he always gave a lecture to people who were given access to the White House. He would tell them that the White House will not tolerate breaches of the law in any form. If you are doing drugs, we will find out and you will be out. And prosecuted.

But in the Clinton White House he was pre-empted by a speech telling the newbies that if they do drugs or they're fooling around to be sure and not let anyone find out. Be discreet.

If I were you I would demand to be excused from that class and fill the hour with study hall. Your parents can do that, and other kids' parents as well.

Sure would be a slap in the face to that PP broad if half the class "opted out."

Define "strange." Are we talking the sixties hippie look with beads, tangled and braided hair with multi-color clothing plus some kind of weird symbol dangling from her neck?

Excessive make-up, dresses resembling those worn by Mrs. Frizzle on Magic School Bus. Hard to describe.

I'm speechless....especially since my son is starting 8th grade next month. Fortunately, since learning of some of the things that are taught (and not taught) at school, we've had several discussions on this subject.

Thank goodness my kids are all grown!!!! They asked me about sex, I told them the truth, how ever much information was appropriate for their age level. My daughter started asking questions at age 5, and I just told her the truth. We don't NEED Planned parenthood.

Back in the 70's, my high school teacher made us ask her husband questions about their sex life. Seriously. It was an assignment. I remember being so embarrassed and just writing down the same questions other people mentioned. At least it was an elective class, one that my sister recommended. It was definitely not the right class for me.

I had a psychology teacher who had us draw up our own astrology charts. She was into wicca. We did all sorts of weird things in that class. None of this was approved educational material, but high schoolers rarely tell their parents what's going on. I didn't. But I grew up, had a son, and chose to home school for just these sorts of reasons.

Welcome to the world of government-controlled institutions. Lucky for you, God put something inside you to help you fight it, something that will stick with you throughout your whole life... a soul.

It's just another one of those topsy-turvy things when the student is more mature than the teacher. I see that stuff happening more and more often these days.

A pity you can't tape this class and get it to a media outlet. Can you slip a tapeplayer in a purse or back pack? This would simply be dynomite.

we had a smiliar deal in St.Paul schools a few years back.
A guy running for school board actually was employed by the
"clinic" that was allowed to dispense BC . Furthermore, they
want to give it without parental consent to minors. Keep in mind you can't even get a school nurse to give a kid a friggin' asprin.
good luck to you.run for school board when you graduate.
you'd be the most in touch with reality of go'mint edumacation.

I'm sure I'll have the same thing this year in high school, so I'll think of how I can sneak a tape-recorder in. Might see if any talk radio hosts would help me get the proper equiptment to do it without getting noticed(example, give me one of those things news anchors wear and I'll pin it on the inside of my jacket.)

Very good post and article. I too have an incoming freshman this June (my youngest). He has been homeschooled totally up to now so I do have some worries about public high schools. The H.S. he will be going to is one of the better in this liberal hell they call Oregon.

His Mom and I feel he has a VERY solid conservative and religious base and will do very well.

Welcome to FreeRepublic! My congratulations and best wishes in your upcoming years of education and conservatism.

A Radio Shack pocket tape recorder in your backpack would do just fine. Make sure to use fresh tape and write the date and time of the class. Also, write down any specific information about the instructor, any other organizations they belng to (ie. NOW, GLAD, GLARP etc.). Make sure to ask the questions during class so they can be recorded and do not under any circumstances voice your opinions until you have documented what has been said.

Thanks for the report. I'm curious to know (if you don't mind discussing it), how much did this "instructor" instruct on homosexuals and homosexual sex?

Btw, these classes are starting at an earlier grade than eighth. A friend of mine has a 10 year old daughter in the public schools who has already been subjected to a sex education class. Only they called it "life skills" to hide it from the parents.

Those ar high functioning pieces of audio equipment.

Radio shack used to have some stuff that is priced in your range and would work. Sound acutated tape recorders and the like that fit in your pocket and are made to pick up "faraway" sound sources with less echo.

There is also a DAT (digital audio tape) stereo microphone (mic) that looks like eyeglasses or fits into a hat. These can be gotten for less money today because DAT is getting old. People used to use them for recording concerts and such. They work with battery powered DAT decks.

Talk to your parents about it--it may be illegal!

That was probably the only good thing about the week. I don't recall even hearing the word homosexual mentioned.

My first sex-ed class was at age 11 in 6th grade, but it taught strictly about the sex organs, nothing about condoms or abstinence. And PP didn't teach it.

Thanks for the report. Stay alert and be strong. Remember the motto of the left: speak up even if your voice trembles. We should heed that motto, too.

Just out of curiosity, has she discussed abstinence at all?

If you wanted to provoke her, you could suggest that it is a "conflict of interest" to have an organization teaching "how to do it" that also provides "the" service of getting teens "out of trouble" when the instructions successfully produced the result they are designed to produce (pregnancy). It would be similar to the owner of "Fred's Used Cars" teaching the driver-ed class.

Good luck and team up with others like yourself!!

You are right.
An eighth grader would not be spelling "juvinile" and "strangeley" incorrectly.
Most likely an idiot adult.

Sounds alot like the schoolboard near me that got slammed for wanting to implement a curriculum that would've taught sex-ed to 3rd & 4th graders.
To the point that they were teaching them some rather 'out of the norm' things.
5th graders here are taught the mechanics and such of it already.

Your point being that even some liberals (such as your good self) are ignorant, you apparently never having heard of flavored condoms?

Of course, your self-absorbed ignorance makes the whole idea hilarious, right? Of course.

So, taking a poster at face value when he (or she) reports something they experienced? You call this "propaganda?" Yet again, you libs are true to form. Resorting to name calling when you can add nothing of substance.

Checked out DU recently and all of the conspiracy theories they subscribe to? And, by default, you subscribe to also? Or, perhaps the correct title should be "leftwing propaganda."

And, if you have not read the newspapers out here recently, there was a school board trying to decide about "gender stereotyping" and "gender indentification" policies that were being promoted by a school district. The idea that someone from PP would be teaching such a class is more likely than not here in CA.

Oh no, I've certainly heard of them. It just seems a little far-fetched that a sex education teacher, even one pushing a (poorly) hidden agenda, would tell eighth grade students to use flavored condoms to make oral sex more enjoyable. Don't you agree?
