    Hate to bring this back up, but since, you know, I live and vote here, there's a massive number of us who were blindsided by this. Out of the twenty or so states I've spent more than a month in (going on 7.5yrs w/ permanent residence in Utah), this is the only one where the major religious organization- yes, singular- owns multiple media outlets- news channels, bookstores, newspapers, etc. The local NBC is directly owned by them, for crying out loud!

    I shouldn't have to tell people what ward I go to in order to get a job. It shouldn't come up.

    For those wondering, he's talking about Mormons. Mormons control Utah.

    Wow. These last few pages.

    On the topic of the sex ed thing, I never liked it for the school to be teaching them. The parents are the one responsible for teaching their own kids what happens. If a students asks about, the teacher should be allowed to talk about it. But it should be the parents telling the kids about this stuff.

    I mean, I asked my mom and she just straight up told me sex. She told me what happens.

    I never learned about sex from my parents. Seriously, I'm pretty sure I knew about it in fourth grade. Beforewe did the sex ed course.

    see, this is the kind of thing that makes me angry. not you specifically, but the mindset that parents will always and unfailingly correctly educate/teach their children.

    sounds reasonable, but at absolute best, its coin pot luck. at worst, its total bullshit. there are people who, I kid you not, will sign papers and withdraw their children from any possible sex education. who will absolutely not only refuse to answer any questions but completely forbid the discussion of sex in their house or to their children. these children go onto high school and get pressured into making terrible mistakes that could have at least been mitigated if they knew what the hell birth control was and how it works, let alone what the letters STD stand for.

    again, I will say parents should have the first chance and option to teach their children, but this attitude of throwing your hands up in the air and saying "leave it to the parents! they cant possibly screw up a kid's life out of misguided morality or ill conceived notions about their child's sexual development!" frustrates me a great deal.

    ........did they make it themselves?
    those are like... the most random ass questions ever =_=

    @Tobi

    god.. i concur with that so much
    but then also, just sometimes parents are bad at teaching it in the first place
    it can be a awkward conversation, and some people handle it very poorly, leaving their kids with more questions than answers and just kinda screwing them over
    although at least in that scenario it seems they'd be open to letting the kids take sex ed

    The survey was actually mainly professional. Kinda personal, but not absurd. Just that bit (and maybe one other? Been ages since I took it) that was massively WTF?

    My parents dumped a sex-ed book outside my brother's door, and expected that he'd share it with me. They were obviously massively uncomfortable about the whole deal (despite my father being inclined to lecherous remarks). Meh, I'm pretty sure I'd learnt everything in there long before they gave us the book. Plus we had some sex-ed in school biology, and a few particular sex-ed classes. (And I finally encountered some government-guided, mandated stuff by the time I got into secondary school, too). No danger of me not knowing about the subject.

    i know we had sex ed in health, but it was really just talking about diseases and how the reproductive cycle works, like i don't think anyone ever taught us to "stick your penis in the vagina," or said anything about foreplay
    although college health sex ed they did tell us the EIGHTEEN steps to put on a condom

    although both cases i already knew pretty much most shit already, cept like fuckign nitty gritty gay ass biology shit they make you learn

    ...honestly can't remember specifically how or when i learned though.. cept do member i learned about cum from f*cking doujin,... which kinda skewed my perception of it for a while

    Yeah I went through some Human Sexuality class, but I already knew much about all this stuff way before I took the class. Don't ask how, but when you watch a lot of movies, anime, and shows, that's adult rated, something should hit you somewhere about how it led to that point. And some classes on tell you almost anything except about how to have sex...

    Agreed. Sure it would be great if all parents would teach their kids and the school didn't have to, but in practice, it's not going to happen.

    Well we're having a ball this this little topic, and whatever was said about this must have made somebody so angry that they had to post this, and it became our little discussion.
