What is it with liberals and their need to turn our innocent children into “sexual beings” to try and push their agendas? They approve of young boys acting like “Naughty Nora“. They want to strip them of their gender identity. Then they turn around and make them into sexual beings in order to try and make pedophilia acceptable?
HHS: Children Are ‘Sexual Beings’
Via CNS News: The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is offering advice to parents and teens about sex education, including assurances that teens may “experiment” with homosexuality as part of “exploring their own sexuality,” and that masturbation should be of concern only “if a child seems preoccupied with it to the exclusion of other activities.”
The information, located on a “Questions and Answers About Sex” link on the “Quick Guide to Health Living” (link no longer available and I couldn’t locate) portion of the HHS Web site, also describes children and infants as “sexual beings.” Under the question “When Do Kids Start Becoming Curious About Sex?” the answer notes that infants have curiosity about their bodies.
“Children are human beings and therefore sexual beings,” the Q&A Web page says. “It’s hard for parents to acknowledge this, just as it’s hard for kids to think of their parents as sexually active. But even infants have curiosity about their own bodies, which is healthy and normal.”
As for masturbation and “what sort of ‘sexual’ behavior do young kids exhibit?” the page says, “Parents should only be concerned about masturbation if a child seems preoccupied with it to the exclusion of other activities. Victims of sexual abuse sometimes become preoccupied with self-stimulation.”
A link at the bottom of the Q&A page, entitled “Sexual Attraction and Orientation,” includes information on sexual experimentation, including homosexuality. (This link takes you to Nemours, one of the nation’s leading pediatric health systems, dedicated to advancing higher standards in children’s health. They state, “…treating every child as if they were our own“.)
“Thinking sexually about both the same sex and the opposite sex is quite common as teens sort through their emerging sexual feelings,” the page says. “This type of imagining about people of the same or opposite sex doesn’t necessarily mean that a person fits into a particular type of sexual orientation.”
Peter Sprigg, senior fellow for policy studies at the conservative Family Research Council, said that the HHS Web site does include some positive information, such as statements about abstinence being the best way to avoid pregnancy or sexually transmitted diseases and the need for parents to teach their children sexual facts.
But some of the information has no place on a federal government Web site, he said. “The idea that ‘children are human beings and therefore sexual beings’ is one of the most destructive myths of the sexual revolution,” Sprigg told CNSNews.com. “To a large extent, this myth may be traced to the ‘research’ conducted by Alfred Kinsey, including the infamous ‘Children of Table 34’ experiments, which involved the deliberate sexual abuse of children as young as 6 months old under ‘experimental’ conditions.”
“The fact that young children are aware that their bodies include genitalia hardly makes them ‘sexual beings,’ and it is improper (and potentially dangerous) to treat them as such before puberty,” he said.
Sprigg added that encouraging teens to become sexually active in any way is wrong: “Sexual ‘experimentation,’ whether same-sex or opposite-sex, should be discouraged for all teens,” he said. “Sex is sex, whether ‘experimental’ or not, whereas abstinence is abstinence –and the latter should be the expected standard of behavior for unmarried teens.”
The HHS Web site reassures teens and parents that having homosexual tendencies as a young person is “common” as teens “sort through their emerging sexual feelings.”
Infants have curiousity about their bodies – duh! They have curiousity with everything that comes in their eye sight! That hardly makes them “sexual beings”.
Since when did it become the role of federal government to preach this nonsense? It is the role of the parents to teach their children about sex education, when the parent feels it is appropriate. I understand there are some parents that need some guidance when it comes to this subject. That is why they have family, friends, their pastor or other local resources to assist them.
This is all part of a greater agenda by the liberals to “dehumanize” children, make them into sexual beings, and corrupt the morals of our society.
