I wonder if he still thinks the same when his 13 y/o daughter comes home, knocked-up by her same-aged playmate from next door.

Or maybe he could teach his daughter about the most delicate parts of life himself, instead of expecting strangers to.

People always equate not wanting sex ed in schools with this laughable notion of not teaching children about it at all.

Most critics of sex ed in schools would rather teach that subject themselves, but their opponents want to make the strawman argument that there would be zero sex ed if not for schools.

Which as he pointed out, is silly. Sex ed in schools is only a recent thing and for thousands of years before that it was taught by families. Look at early US history when there was NO sex ed in schools, were accidental pregnancies and STDs more common then, or now? Were young kids having graphic sexual thoughts on their minds more common then, or now?

The answer of course is now, because sex ed in schools is taught without an ethical, moral or spiritual context, as raw physicality... and that's how the kids act these days.

I understand your point but as quoting from the article, he does not believe sex education is needed at all. I mean it is right there in the title:

"Rep. Louie Gohmert says he doesn't see the value of sex education, noting that "mankind has existed" just fine without for a long time"

also note that if you do not want your child to recieve sex ed in school, you are free to excuse them from those classes and teach them yourself.

That doesnt mean you get to kill it for others whom may feel different. Seems to me that those against it seem to want their kids out of it along with everyone elses.

Ahh I have to say I didn't read the article nor do I care for the opinions of Mr. Gohmert, I was just speaking generally about this issue.

Obviously true ZERO education is completely stupid, and if he believes in it then so is he.

I did not know you could have your child excluded from sex ed classes. This is something I'm learning more about now that I have one of my own on the way...

That would be perfectly acceptable, I have no idea why some would want to block it for the children of others... most people do NOT want to teach sexuality to their children and so the sex ed classes are good for them (better than nothing at least).
