@Zah its fantastic to hear, I do hope it makes a positive change and shifts towards accurate information being provided. Here is a talk from the CEO of “The new sex ed” program in the States. The statistics she talks about are alarming https://youtu.be/Y4-__tsWRh0
@mak_trouble891 – I’m familiar with the speaker and her multiple TEDx talks… yes she did say that. In some states the conservative types encourage the phrase “sex outside of marriage will make you pregnant and kill you” (note the absolute in that phrase).
Well my rather embarrassed PE teachers (who got stuck with the sex-ed classes too), all advised not having sex until we were at least 18, and that waiting for marriage was a good idea. I pretty sure it wasn’t part of the syllabus, but was still flung upon us with a lot of guilt and shaming (I also don’t think any of them had taken their own advice during their youth) – and when combined with the pregnancy lecture….
The thing is having teachers not ready for the conversation, or who bring their own personal hang-ups into the lessons, teaching the subject can be seriously damaging to the students involved (I just hope that classes have changed a bunch since I went through them).
