Despite the beliefs of many people, shielding children from sexual education isn't going to keep them from becoming sex fiends. It's better that children become educated on what happens so that they won't be ignorant when they are older. Granted, I don't know if a kindergarten student has the mental capacity to understand sexual education, but I wouldn't be opposed to having it taught when kids reach puberty.

5 year olds are not old enough, and mentally mature enough (Their brains aren't very rational yet either) I don't understand why liberals want to destroy the innocents of children. Let them be 5. My goodness... they don't need to know about sex at age 5! Obama is just an idiot.

The sad reality is that sexual predators exist, and some even prey on young children. The only thing that could be done is for those capable of doing so to protect children from those kind of people and to be strict against sexual predators. I may agree with Obama on certain issues, but because of the lack of mental capacity to understand sex at that age, I'd have to disagree with him on that regard.

Good, I believe the Netherlands uses a similar thing... They begin at about the age of 5 or 6 discussing things like "what is love" and different types of relationship. Every year they get told more and more until they start learning about the actual mechanics of sexual intercourse.

They have the lowest rate of teen pregnancy in Europe.

The results do not lie. :D


"Let's let our 5-year olds be 5-year olds," said Romney's spokesman Eric Fehrnstrom. "When students are old enough for sex education they should be taught abstinence as part of their health curriculum and that marriage should come before babies.


That's not sex education! That's not sex education at all!

Wow. First of all, that article is obviously very conservatively biased. It makes it sound like Obama wants to show pre-schoolers how to do various sexual poisitions when in actuality, HE'S NOT.

His goal, of course, is to protect kids from sexual predators and he is allowing this by giving the OPTION for parents to allow their children to be educated in ways to protect themselves. Sex education when it teaches how to give a proper blowjob and when it tells you not to let strangers touch your special area are DIFFERENT.

Lastly, that abstinence plan is bull, as it doesn't work.

Ah, I like the idea about discussions about love and relationships because talking about it at a younger age helps you to understand it better. That way you won't be as much of a sucker in that regard, and you'll know how to protect yourself. Also, it's important that they progress to the mechanics of intercourse later on because it'd help them to understand that sex is best reserved instead of having sex indiscriminately.

Also, the abstinence only plan doesn't work. Teenage pregnancy is just as prevalent as ever. That's why that information on how to protect yourself should also be implemented along with advocation for abstinence.

They're going to learn about it from the media and older kids at that age anyway, so it's better that they get all of the facts at that age, instead of the just romanticized perspective of sex that they would get from older siblings. I think if this generation's teenagers were properly taught about sex at that age, then they wouldn't be screwing like rabbits now and there'd be less teenage pregnancy, since they would know all of the possible consequences and they'd know how to protect themselves.

5 might be a little too young for them to understand it since they probably don't even know they have genitals at that age (I know I didn't), 9-10 might be a better age.

Obama Supports Sex-Education in Kindergarten, Romney Strikes Back
"How much sex education is age appropriate for a 5-year-old? In my view, zero," Romney declares

By Elizabeth O'Brien

COLORADO SPRINGS, July 20, 2007 (LifeSiteNews. com) - As the presidential vote approaches, Democratic candidate Barack Obama and Republican candidate Mitt Romney are pitted against each other over the issue of the appropriateness of sex-education for kindergarten students.



Pro-abortion Senator Barack Obama addressed a Planned Parenthood Action Fund group on Tuesday, saying, "It's the right thing to do," to provide "age-appropriate sex education, science-based sex education in schools." Obama said he believes that children need information when they are young so that they can protect themselves from sexual predators.



Romney struck back while campaigning in Colorado Springs, asking, "How much sex education is age appropriate for a 5-year-old?" Romney stated, "In my view, zero is the right amount. Instead of teaching about sex education in kindergarten to 5-year-olds let's clean up the ocean of filth, the cesspool in which our children are swimming.

"

"Let's let our 5-year olds be 5-year olds," said Romney's spokesman Eric Fehrnstrom. "When students are old enough for sex education they should be taught abstinence as part of their health curriculum and that marriage should come before babies.

"

Obama defended himself saying, "All I said was that I support the same laws that exist in Massachusetts and New Hampshire, in which local communities and parents can make decisions to provide children with the information they need to deal with sexual predators," the Boston Globe reports. As Illinois State Senator, Obama approved legislation that would allow sex-education in kindergarten rather than grades 6 to 12 only.



During his governorship of Massachusetts, Romney actively supported abstinence education in addition to sex-education (see http://www. boston. com/news/education/k_12/articles/2005/12/2...).

On the other hand, ABC also reports that in a 2002 Planned Parenthood questionnaire, Romney checked yes to the following question: "Do you support the teaching of responsible, age-appropriate, factually accurate health and sexuality education, including information about both abstinence and contraception, in public schools?"

Romney, who professes to have had a demonstrative, but recent turn-around in his moral views, has called himself "firmly pro-life". Despite this and his present conservative stand against Obama on the matter of sex-education, Romney has met with considerable suspicion from conservatives and is being forced to work hard to reassure many voters who are uneasy due to a history of waffling on traditional values.

Is this somebody you would really want in the white house? I mean, come one people. Seriously.


Did you know that because of Bushes abstinence only education, the previously declining teen pregnency rate is now going up? And also along with that, the amount of teen abortions are going down! This is what i call counter productive.

Right, someone who went to Harvard Law School, and was on law review is an idiot.

Well I think that's better than letting kids hear it from other kids or other sources. At least having sex education at that age would give them a fair idea of what it really is instead of them being clueless and super curious about it and then later on their curiosity might endanger them.
Freud's Psychosexual Stages of Development is a good justification that children as young as 1 are sexual in a more subtle way. It's not like they'll teach the type of sex education that's usually given to high schoolers. Obviously, they would adjust it and make it more "appropriate" and more understandable to kids at that age.


And the mentality of kids nowadays are changing drastically... I mean....lose your virginity on prom night, pregnant 12 year olds, bla bla bla =____=

Kill the sexual curiosity of the children as early as you can. Oh well, the end justifies the means. If Obama becomes president, let's just see how the society will change...better or for worse...let's see.
