The Eleven-Year-Old Sexologists

Sexologist: an expert on sex among human beings 

Remember the days when eleven-year-old kids were learning all about geography, diagramming sentences and finishing long division problems in their fifth grade classes? I do but, sadly, those days are long gone. It seems, at least in Philadelphia, that the emphasis is now on condoms instead of contractions. 

A new program, called “Take Control Philly,” is being offered in area schools and focuses on various sexually transmitted diseases while setting forth the premise that if one uses a condom, then that person (and his partner) will be protected from such diseases. But wait a minute!

The hostess, or at least the featured star of the site, is a woman named Zelda. Zelda has a “guide” available online and also offers free condoms through the mail. The Zelda Guide is 86 pages long and has references to gay and lesbian groups, as well as to Planned Parenthood. This guide is apparently an all-inclusive sexual cookbook for kids. 

There’s a section on the web site dealing with the use of female condoms, telling young girls, “Every girl is different. Figure out what position works for you. You can stand with one foot on a chair, sit on the edge of a chair, lie down, squat, or for fun, have your partner help you out.”

The story only gets worse. Fox News reports, 

The web site, which instructs visitors to use condoms “each and every time,” also provides an interface where users can request free male condoms mailed directly to their doorstep.

“Playing it safe just got easier,” the web site reads. “If you live in Philadelphia and are between the ages of 11 and 19, you can now have condoms mailed directly to you for FREE. Maybe it’s difficult for you to stop by one of our sites to pick up condoms. Or maybe you’re just shy or feeling weird about picking up condoms.”

Jeff Moran, a spokesman for Philadelphia’s Department of Health, said the campaign was launched last week. No complaints had been received as of today, he said.

As disturbing as this latest news from Philadelphia is, it unmasks a fundamental problem we face in our culture today—the idea that human beings who happen to be children are so immersed in the sexualized society that they cannot be permitted to be children. Apparently the government has decided, at least in Pennsylvania, that adults commonly identified as parents are not responsible for their own children. These perverted experts deem from on high that every child needs to know more about sexual relations than he or she does about anything else. 

One of my favorite experts on childhood sexual development is Melvin Anchell, M.D. Regarding the latency period, which runs from six to 12 years of age, he writes:  

In the 6- to 12-year-old child, direct sexual feelings become quiescent. Because of this dormancy for direct sexual energies, latency is a time in life when the individual normally experiences the greatest tranquility. 

The dormant sexual energies in the child do not disappear during latency, but are redirected by the mind and are used to serve other purposes. For example, during latency, some redirected sexual energy is used for acquiring knowledge. This is why the 6- to 12-year-old child is most educable. 

Scholastic tests done on today’s [1985] sexually educated 6- to 12-year-olds, indeed, show that these students have accomplished less scholastically than pre-sex-education students. 

Prior to the establishment of sex programs, educators acted as though they seemed to realize that involving the child in sexual matters made the child uneducable, and they made every effort to avoid concerning the child with sexual matters. 

The scholastic problems in today’s schools cannot be corrected by spending more money for buildings, equipment and teachers. They can only be corrected by removing the sex education interferences that make students uneducable. 

Thus, while Zelda is telling Dick and Jane all about how to avoid a sexually transmitted disease by using a condom—and using your tax dollars to do so—Dick and Jane can neither read nor do math! Go figure!
