There are two ways to get caught up in the fun weirdness of early sex education: sitting here and then sitting in school meetings where it’s discussed.
I was able to experience both. Between fifth and twelfth grade, I wasted the time of my life watching funny videos on human sexuality and listening to teachers preach the gospel of tolerance: as long as it’s acceptable and legal, it’s fine and you’re fine. seriously. Don’t judge and don’t think that you are being judged by your parents or some higher power. you’re so sweet.
Then, during my short time in high school, I attended some meetings where this curriculum was discussed. Parents, you won’t be surprised to learn, aren’t happy about it. In perhaps the most sensitive topic parents have to deal with, the liberal values that educators decide to act as a substitute for parents because children may not get that message at home.

“As a teacher, I’m not interested in talking to kids about their sexual preferences, especially at the age of 12,” Basinger said, adding that she felt that schools taught kids about their sexual preferences. Encouraging them to influence identities they would otherwise not consider.
“Developmentally, middle school kids want to be fit — maybe more than elementary or secondary school kids,” Basinger said.
“And so he…
