Watched ‘Glee’ last night. Was thouroughly entertained. Also came one step closer to deciding in favour of homeschooling my daughter.
Woke up this morning. Attempted to email a client to the sound of my daughter chanting, “Mommy, what are we doing today? And what am I wearing? Mommy. Mommy-mommy-mommy! Where are we going today? And what am I wearing?” Email attempt failed. Perhaps a public education wouldn’t be so bad.
After breakfast, read this article:
Children as young as five should be taught about explicit sex acts, according to guidelines from the United Nations.
The advice also calls for youngsters to learn about abortion, same-sex relationships and sexually transmitted diseases.
Yep. Chalked another one up to the “homeschool” column.by
Yeah . . . junk like that convince me more and more that when I have children I’ll have to homeschool as well. I’d rather let my children keep their innocence.
But I watched Glee last night as well and end up saying to myself, “but how will they get to have a wonderful high school musical experience like that?” Hahahahaha. (But then I’m reminded, most of my music education was extracurricular, far superior, included Europe tours, AND no boys, so it’ll be okay.)

I suggest you ignore anything you read in the Daily Mail. It’s a very tabloid paper, prone to exageration and sensationalism. I wouldn’t only be unsurprised if it is distorting the guidelines in order to create a sales-raising moral panic, I would be surprised if it wasn’t.
Besides, even if the claim is every bit what the DM claims, this is only a non-binding recormendation. It means precisely nothing.
As the UN representative says, “‘It doesn’t mean that teaching about masturbation must take place at five years old. It may be mentioned, but it is up to parents and teachers about whether this is done.”
Denial is the greatest sin in Canadian society today. Denial allows us to believe the UN are the ‘good guys’ without acknowledging their persistent and heavy handed pushing of contraception worldwide – from condoms to abortion. Denial allows us to believe that carbon emissions are an acceptable excuse for the UN’s population control policies (see WaPo today). Denial allows us to pooh-pooh concerns over the UN’s penchant for ever more radically perverse and repressive policy proposals, not to mention their bullying tactics with politically vulnerable gov’ts.
The UN absolutely means every bit of their sex education proposals. They are totally serious, and have in fact chastised some recalcitrant countries for NOT teaching young children about homosexuality as an acceptable alternative, and for NOT passing legislation making abortion legal.
The UN are not the ‘good’ guys. They are part of the myth we grew up with…you know, the one where ‘we’ are the ‘good’ guys too.
