"U.N. Report Advocates Teaching Masturbation to 5-Year-Olds"

The characterization of this as "absurd" is exactly right:

The United Nations is recommending that children as young as five receive mandatory sexual education that would teach even pre-kindergarteners about masturbation and topics like gender violence.

The U.N.'s Economic, Social and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) released a 98-page report in June offering a universal lesson plan for kids ranging in age from 5-18, an
"informed approach to effective sex, relationships" and HIV education that they say is essential for "all young people."

The U.N. insists the program is "age appropriate," but critics say it's exposing kids to sex far too early, and offers up abstract ideas — like "transphobia" — they might not even understand.

"At that age they should be learning about ... the proper name of certain parts of their bodies," said Michelle Turner, president of Citizens for a Responsible Curriculum, "certainly not about masturbation."

Turner was disturbed by UNESCO's plans to explain to children as young as nine about the safety of legal abortions, and to advocate and "promote the right to and access to safe abortion" for everyone over the age of 15.

"This is absurd," she told FOXNews.com.

The UNESCO report, called "International Guidelines for Sexuality Education," separates children into four age groups: 5-to-8-year-olds, 9-to-12-year-olds, 12-to-15-year-olds and 15-to-18-year-olds. . . . .

So, let's see. We're teaching sexuality to children who probably can't even pronounce the word.

Yeah. This is exactly what you get with public schools. Courts have ruled that parents have no say in what their children are taught. Some schools give opt-out forms, but those are just for show.

In Novato, CA, a group of gay activists demanded that they be allowed to teach 7 year olds about homosexuality. The children don't even know about their own sexuality, let alone what homosexuality is. The school pointed out the opt-out forms but the gay activists claimed the opt-out forms would violate their civil rights. So the school caved.

Another reason for home schooling.
