Hall Shame

United Nations UNESCO

by Catherine Frakas 28 Feb 2010

The United Nations and is Economic, Social and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) is inducted into our hall of shame for its unabashed perversion of proposing sexual training to children. The following Fox News article explains: U.N. Report Advocates Teaching Masturbation to 5-Year-Olds Wednesday, August 26, 2009 By Joseph Abrams (Fox News) NEW YORK 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 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. Under the U.N.’s voluntary sex-ed regime, kids just 5-8 years old will be told that touching and rubbing one’s genitals is called masturbation and that private parts can feel pleasurable when touched by oneself. By the time they’re 9 years old, they’ll learn about positive and negative effects of ‘aphrodisiacs, and wrestle with the ideas of homophobia, transphobia and abuse of power. At 12, they’ll learn the reasons for abortions but they’ll already have known about their safety for three years. When they’re 15, they’ll be exposed to direct advocacy to promote the right to and access to safe abortion. Child health experts say they are wary of teaching about the sticky topic of abortion, but stress that as long as messages stay age-appropriate, educating kids at a younger age helps better steer them into adulthood. The adults are more leery of [early sex-ed] than the kids are, said Dr. Jennifer Hartstein, a child psychiatrist in New York. Our own fears sometimes prevent us from being as open and honest with our kids as possible. Hartstein, however, who didn’t see much harm in explaining basic concepts that kids of all ages will have questions about, was baffled by some of the ideas the U.N. hoped to introduce to kids as young as 5 years old, who will be taught about gender roles, stereotypes and gender-based violence. I want to know how you teach that to a 5-year-old, Hartstein told FOXNews
