So the fundamentalist Christians and Muslims got their way and McGinty backed down and Ontario is going back to the tired old sex ed program that teaches kids NADA!! How do I know it teaches squat? Well, I was a student of that program and I spent that time staring at medical drawings and watching “Degrassi Junior High” kids interview 80s Toronto teens on “What they think of sex”.
Pathetic, I know. I didn’t learn about condoms, birth control, clinics, menstruation, different orientations, nothing that could be remotely useful.
And they’re going back to that! Congrats jerks, you have done a great disservice to children all over Ontario!
To make one last point on the subject, I am posting a video of then comic-genius, Bill Hicks. The video is a bit dated and he is talking about the States, but it pretty much still holds true nowadays and in many countries. (Sadly)
Replace “pornography” with “sex education” (though there are idiots out there who confuse the two) and he sums up many of the points in my last post brilliantly, as well as makes another point which wasn’t included. (Just turn it down a notch if you’re at work):
