If a Martian were to observe the human condition, he would have to conclude that the left has an agenda to deprive children of their innocence.

The Martian would have no other explanation for the premature sexualizing of children that the left has engaged in for decades, and which seems to increases almost weekly.

The most recent example is the cover of the current issue of the New Yorker, which depicts the Sesame Street characters Bert and Ernie. They are seated on a couch snuggling with Bert's head on Ernie's shoulder watching television. The TV features a picture of the U.S. Supreme Court.

To their credit, the creators of Sesame Street and of Bert and Ernie have stated that the two characters are not only never depicted as having anything but Platonic interest in one another, they are also never depicted as having any interest in females either. As indeed it should have been, they were characters for children to enjoy.

But for the left, Bert and Ernie (and whatever else the left can get its ideological hands on) are manipulated into vehicles for a left-wing cause. And no cause animates the left these days more than the social advancement of gays, lesbians, bisexuals and the transgendered.

One consequence has been the robbing of children's innocence by prematurely sexualizing them. Rendering Bert and Ernie as gay is only the most recent example.

Other examples abound.

Just one week earlier, the State of Colorado's Rights Division ruled that a first-grade boy who identifies and dresses as a girl may use the girls' restroom at school. The school had previously allowed the first-grader to use a bathroom in either the teachers' lounge or in the nurse's office, but not the girls' bathroom.

Now, first-grade girls must share their bathroom with a fellow first-grader who has a penis. There is every reason to have pity on this child. But that is not a valid reason to subject all the girls to issues such as gender confusion at such a young age.

Another way in which the left has subjected young children to sexual issues has been the widespread teaching about sexual harassment, also beginning in first grade. In addition to having discussions that do not belong in a first-, second-, third-, fourth-, or fifth- grade class, this hysterical fixation on sexual harassment has labeled innocent child's play a form of sexual deviancy.
