Why We Need Medically Accurate Sex Ed in Schools!!!
on July 28, 2016
If you doubt the reasons behind teaching medically accurate sex ed in classrooms, take a minute to read the one star reviews on this very basic children's book.
The amount of body shaming they wish to impart upon children is horrifying. They're apoplectic that a children's book would suggest that "It's perfectly natural to be curious about your private parts and to want to touch them. But this is something you should do only in a private place, like your room."
The horror that a book would use medically accurate terms and show cartoon drawing of genitals was so offensive to one woman she said she burned it and "that no child or even adult needs this much info unless they're a doctor!"
I included photos of the most technical this book gets, which is still extremely basic and stuff EVERYONE should know. How this can be offensive is completely beyond me.
Parents- there are too many unwanted pregnancies, STDs, and sexual abuse victims out there to allow your child to grow up in ignorance and shame when it comes to sex. Start early, start often. This book is an excellent place to start, even though it leaves out intercourse completely.
