Sex between 13-year-olds is NORMAL, says controversial 'traffic light tool'

traffic light tool
Daily Mail UK: Sex between 13-year-olds is ‘safe and healthy’ behaviour, according to controversial guidance offered to schools to teach youngsters about relationships. Family campaigners warned teachers were being urged to encourage behaviour which was against the law, while MPs said youngsters should be told that under-age sex is ‘harmful’ and ‘dangerous’.
The ‘Traffic Light Tool’ produced as part of sex and relationship education lessons also suggested masturbation and ‘consensual kissing’ was a ‘Green behaviour’ for child as young as nine.
Recently-published supplementary guidance on sex and relationship education (SRE) for schools included a link to the ‘Traffic Light Tool’ from sexual health and advice service Brook. The tool on sexual behaviours, which is available online, is meant to help professionals assess whether children and young people’s sexual behaviours are healthy or unhealthy. It sets out green, amber and red ‘behaviours’ for different age groups.
Under the 13-17 age group, it lists a number of green behaviours, which are described as behaviours that reflect ‘safe and healthy sexual development’ displayed between children and young people of similar age and developmental ability and ‘reflective of natural curiosity, experimentation, consensual activities and positive choices’.
The approved list of behaviour for 13-17-year-olds includes ‘having sexual or non-sexual relationships’, ‘sexual activity including hugging, kissing, holding hands’ and ‘consenting oral and/or penetrative sex with others of the same or opposite gender who are of similar age and developmental ability’.
Sarah Carter, of the Family Education Trust, sounded the alarm about the guidance, warning that sometimes what is taught in school sex and relationship lessons is against the law.
She told the Commons education select committee, how the Brook’s tool ‘states that young people who are consensually sexually active from the age of 13, this is normal behaviour and development, whereas actually the law states that young person should wait until they are 16 at least, never mind if they are ready or not’.
Miss Carter added: ‘That’s awfully unlawful behaviour, and so quite often what’s taught in SRE isn’t always lawful.’
The supplementary guidance on sex and relationships education (SRE), which contained links to a number of resources that could be used by schools, including the Traffic Light Tool, was developed and published by the PSHE Association with Brook and the Sex Education Forum.
Graham Stuart, the Labour MP who chairs the education committee, warned that critics might argue that to send out messages that 13-year-olds having sex together is part of growing up and ‘not to send out a message that it’s wrong, that it’s harmful, it’s dangerous, is in fact to almost to collude with something which we know is damaging to young people’.
Joe Hayman, chief executive of the PSHE Association, said that all the resources that the PSHE Association produces are clear about teaching about the law. ‘I think the only challenge with dealing with these subjects, and this is why we need really well-trained teachers, is that we’ve got to deal with children’s realities,’ he told the committee.
Mr Hayman said: ‘What I was saying was that it’s really, really important that a dictatorial-from-the-front lesson on what one should and shouldn’t do is less likely to have an impact and I think we’ve got to start from where children are, their reality. There’s no one in our community who feels we should be trying to sexualise children, or any of those kinds of things.
‘What we want is children to develop healthy and safe relationships and it’s really important that teachers are provided with the necessary training in order to do that.’
Questioned further about Brook’s Traffic Light Tool, Mr. Hayman insisted it was difficult for him to be accountable for every piece of information linked to in the PSHE Association’s supplementary guidance, which has many links within it. He agreed to write to the committee about the issue.

One word: DEMONIC.


Much of the Ten Commandments was written to keep us from doing things that are “natural”. Come to think about it, much animal life, if not all, needs self control of one kind or another.


[…] Sex between 13-year-olds is NORMAL, says controversial ‘traffic light tool’. […]


I spoke with an 8 year old last night… she told me simple jokes, sang a cute song, and played a small prank on me while asking about my crochet….
Tell me again how is a 9 year old needs to learn masturbation from a government run school??

The deviant has become the norm, and this is demonic. Let’s be clear: They are coming for our children.
Please investigate the UN’s Rights of the Child Treaty, another bad piece of legislation in the works.


Note also that they use the same sentence to say homosexual sex between 13 year olds is normal (apparently homosexuality and pedophilia/hebephilia are working together, again). Both outright lies. Children of the “tweens” are especially unstable, the last thing they need is to be having sexual encounters that can drastically alter (and retard) their development, but then this whole scenario was planned, first the sex ed classes, then the cameraphones and the sexting followed by sextortion, then a clamor from the politicrats to do something to fix the problem, which is then more perverse sex ed to “make sure they… Read more »


I’m starting to see a pattern here. Teaching other people’s kids every kind of debauchery and perversion imaginable at very early ages-but WHY?


Hey, I thought we had an age of consent because folk shouldn’t be having sex below a certain age… when did that change? (Thanks, liberals!! When your 6th Grader is pregnant and doesn’t know who the father is be sure to blame Bush… )


It appears that it isn’t just this one incidence that is pushing this whole thing, a recent article posted on Mr. Makow’s site shows planned parenthood is aiming to sexualize kids as well: Also it seems that these “light” standards are not just confined to this one sector either: As you can see from this site alleging to “keep children safe” (but sponsored by the “global children’s fund”) they are pushing the same set of corrupted standards with a bit different wording consider “Lying on top of each other naked or ‘sleeping’ together naked” given as normal child… Read more »
