Another day, another bizarre proposal from our activist sexperts. These guys are on a crusade to sexualise our kids whether we like it or not. Today we have yet another call to have condom vending machines in our schools. The proposal has thankfully been met largely with disdain and disbelief.
In an updated version of the story in the Herald Sun, we find this report: “Both major political parties are strongly opposed to Family Planning Victoria’s radical proposal to hand out free condoms at high schools. As revealed in this morning’s Herald Sun, students as young as 12 could get free condoms at high schools in a radical plan to reduce teenage pregnancies.
“Prime Minister Julia Gillard dismissed the idea today. ‘It is completely absurd,’ she said. The idea was also opposed by the Federal Coalition Government. Opposition Leader Tony Abbott said the idea of providing condoms in schools was not on his agenda. ‘I have no plans to go down that path,’ he said.
“Family Planning Victoria wants condoms made available for years 10-12 – and to younger students in special circumstances. But according to the results of a heraldsun poll, almost 70% of readers believe that children as young as 12 should not be given free condoms. The taxpayer-financed group said they should be kept in student common rooms, or distributed by machines.”
These types of proposals are always idiotic and counter-productive. All they do is put up the white flag of surrender. They in effect tell kids that there is just no stopping sexual activity, and that they should just give in to any passions and lusts that grip them.
We are simply telling our kids they are no better than animals with such counsels of despair. We are sending our children a clear message that they do not have the ability to say no, to exercise self-control, to learn to resist sexual pressure.
Yet those are exactly the sort of messages we need to be giving to our young people. They need to be taught to respect themselves, and taught how to resist sexual pressure, not cave into it. They are human beings with the ability to make choices.
As it happens, I just debated on radio the sexpert in question. She was predictably out to lunch as she sought to justify this sexual suicide. She said we should leave questions of right and wrong out of all this. Great, just what we need – an amoral approach to one of the most moral issues facing our young people.
It is a moral framework with which to discuss these issues which is so desperately needed. Yet these so-called experts think it is nothing but a biology lesson. Sorry, our children are human beings with a moral nature who do not just need bare information, but the ability to make moral assessments.
But this proponent of the condom culture was out of her depth in other ways. She tried to claim that studies show that sex-ed and condom handouts reduce teen sexuality. But as I said on the radio debate, the very opposite is the case. In fact, I cited a major study from the world premier sex-ed outfit, Planned Parenthood International.
According to their own research, kids who take comprehensive sex education programs are in fact more likely to be sexually active, more likely to fall pregnant, and more likely to have all the other problems associated with teen sexual activity.
And how did the big cheese from Family Planning Victoria respond? Incredibly, she just said ‘No! That’s not so’. I was staggered. Here she simply denied in public the research done by her own side. She is either living in complete denial, or deliberately seeking to mislead the public about all this.
Indeed, I cited another study, this time from England, which found that teen pregnancy rates soared wherever government programs featuring comprehensive sex-ed and condom distribution were promoted. Once again, she was totally unable or unwilling to respond. But how could she? She had an ideological agenda she was trying to push, while I had the data.
But this is so typical of these sexual revolutionaries. They want to cram their mad hatter programs down the throats of our children, and live in la-la land as to the actual facts and evidence. Radicals pushing social engineering agendas cannot be bothered with mere trifles such as facts and data. They are on a crusade.
On occasion however some reality breaks into this dream world. Consider this story: Some 800 sexologists were asked at a world congress whether they would rely on a condom for protection if they had available the partner of their dreams and knew the person carried HIV. After a long delay, one hand was timidly raised in the back of the room. The speaker was irate. She told her audience that it was completely irresponsible to give advice to others that they would not follow themselves.
Quite right. Merely relying on condoms is simply offering our teens a go at Russian roulette. With around 16 per cent failure rates, this is the last thing we should be throwing at our kids. But this is the best our sexperts can offer. Our kids deserve far better.
They deserve to be told the truth about themselves, about sexuality, and right and wrong, and about personal responsibility. They do not need to be sold a bill of goods by these social engineers who will simply destroy our children and their innocence. Indeed, why they want to simply throw around condoms seems incomplete at best.
As I said on the radio interview, why don’t we just go the whole hog, and offer beds in our schools, maybe even red-light districts? That is certainly the direction these activists are taking us in.
