When there is a problem one can either address the cause or vie to nurse the symptoms. Sex educators at UNC have chosen the latter. If there are too many teen pregnancies or too many STD-infected students, the solution is not to hand out free condoms as they suggest.
First of all, among the many false premises of the sex education sycophants, sexual health is not a communal matter. One’s health is a private, personal matter. In dealing with health issues that students have control over (i.e. getting pregnant or transmitting an STD), personal responsibility is where one’s health education should begin and end.
Secondly, the idea that students are ignorant about sex education is just absurd because they are not. However, even if they were, that is no excuse for state-sponsored sex education in college. People who want to know things know them, especially people who are older than the age of 18. Students aren’t as stupid as people at Campus Health Services (CHS) want everyone to think.
Thirdly, Campus Health and the University continually take an irresponsible stance when it comes to pre-marital sex: they condone it.
Sex education advocates never tire of making fun of people who believe in teaching abstinence in schools. They claim that it is silly and backward to take such a dogmatic stance on the issue of teenage/pre-marital sex. In fact, the name calling involved is merely a way to marginalize people who disagree with their view that sex before marriage is a good and healthy thing. Not only does CHS think sex before marriage is a good thing, it goes so far as to give tips on how “To increase sensitivity and pleasure of the receiving partner during oral sex” and other like advice.
As a showcase for what it wrong with UNC’s take on sex education, check out CHS’s webpage on abstenence. In a tone most people reserve for morons, the all-knowing sex educators explain: “Depending on your personal definition of abstinence and reasons for abstaining, any type of sexual activity may be unacceptable. The decision to abstain is one that you can make at any point in your life, even if you have been sexually active before.”
Wowzers, I had no idea!
The webpage goes on to explain some of the disadvantages of abstinence. Included among the bulleted, adverse effects of not having sex (and I quote): “This method may be frustrating.”
And that’s where we are, I guess. If it’s frustrating for goodness sakes avoid it! Never mind that one’s body has the potential for being the temple of the living God — woop! Sorry, it seems I accidently posited a truth claim.
Thankfully, sex educators are not biased at all, unlike me.
