This is the path that the left-wing have been trying to accomplish with the entire gay marraige and homosexual rights agenda.

1.) They are trying to establish that they can take away the peoples ‘right to representation’ on an issue of how sexuality is dealt with publically. Thus the left are trying to use the Courts to override the process of legislation made by our representatives.

2.) They are trying to establish sexuality (in any form?) as an issue of rights that the government needs to protect from discrimination and never legislate against.

3.) By establishing homosexuality specifically as a right that the government needs to protect and introducing it that way in schools the left is establishing precedent to turn children against so-called homophobic parents and to have the government step in between parents and child in order to protect a child’s right to sexual expression.

4.) Then extend this so-called protection of rights to all sexual expression by children and thus also much more strongly insert the government and their children. Evidence of this is even in the recent HHS statement on their website telling parents to treat their children like ‘sexual beings’.

The ‘age of consent’ laws are determined the same way that marraige laws have been determined, through our ‘right to representation’. If as a people we have no right to representation on how gender is dealt with in public then why will be able to maintain a ‘right to representation’ on the ‘age of consent’?

Typical lines from the ‘gay marraige’ debate used by leftists will be used again. “How does it hurt you if another family decides that their children are ready for sexual relationships?” “Why should be allowed to tell another family how to raise their children.”
