Are There Any Solutions?

Rather than push pleasure-based fringe perversions on children who don’t want it, schools should go back to what sex ed was originally designed for, such as the Family Life Education of the 1950s. Instead of focusing on sex and pleasure, with the latest kink trends, society should teach young men how to be good husbands and young girls how to be good wives. Radical, I know. But even from a secular perspective, it’s simply practical. A country is comprised of family units, and there is no better structure on which to build a growing and healthy society than the traditional family.

States should focus on opt-in policies, rather than opt-out. This strategic approach will put those with perverted agendas on the defensive. Make them answer why they oppose parents being in complete control with opt-in policies. If there’s nothing wrong with what they are teaching, they should be happy that the parents know about it and must approve it before it’s taught to their children. This should be a bare minimum, but it’s a crucial step.

Lastly, prosecution is a necessary deterrent to protect our children, but it’s strangely ignored today. Imagine what would happen if the things taught to kids in the way they are taught today were done in the 1950s. Imagine adults teaching kids how to have more pleasure and kink practices, and then couple that with the practice of schools keeping things like gender transitioning secret from parents. What would happen in the 1950s? People would be arrested. No new laws would need to be written. They would just be prosecuted under existing child endangerment laws among others.

Why don’t we do this today? Why aren’t we protecting our children? This is abuse, and the practice will not stop unless there are real consequences, like all detrimental societal practices. In the future, our children will look at how we responded to the assault on their innocence and judge our inaction unless there is a decided change.
