[quote=shannon e]Nice post, Ana.
Although we haven’t been completely stifled, have we?
An actual lot has been said… before it goes away…
I think those who have read and posted have benefited.
Of course, if the threads have truly disappeared, then someone new who wants to talk about these topics won’t be able to access them in a Search-- and will start the topic all over again. The Moderators seem to be unwittingly setting up a Catch-22 situation?
Sweetchuck, I can relate to your frustration… but in all honesty-- don’t you think we could manage to talk about this stuff in a way that is somewhat less explicit? I dunno, I thought that last thread went well… Maybe posters will eventually arrive at a way to talk about this stuff in a way that will still safeguard the innocent.
[forgive the slight off-topic detour Sweetchuck-- but I just have to mention to Ana-- I love your signature quote :yup: It’s so true! And sadly I think the opposite is true, too ]
Thanks for the kudos on the quote. I found it recently and knew I had to use it.
As for the explicit nature: I have not seen ANYTHING explicit. Moreover, even if it does have some degree of explicity, EVERYTHING posted here is certainly less explicit than what kids are exposed to at school, during primetime TV, and among their peers. Now, I suppose parents who homeschool, don’t let their kids watch TV and don’t let them have friends may be bothered by these threads. But society is out to educate children about sex.
Now tell me this:
Is it better to have someone educate your child who says to your child:
“There are 5 types of sexuality (hetero-, homo-, bi-, trans- and a-) and all are equal morally. Which one are you?” ?
Or is it better to have someone educate your child who says:
“God has created this wonderful gift of sexuality and has designed it to operate in a certain way, and it is governed at all times by moral and natural law, regardless of what culture says.” ?
Who would you choose? None of the above is not an appropriate answer. Because teens WILL learn about sexuality. It’s kind of biologically forced upon them. That first explanation is likely to take hold. Mothers, fathers, talk to your kids before Planned Parenthood does! Do it for their souls. PPFA cares nothing for their souls. They see your children as potential future clients. And they have certainly “educated” some of your children’s peers. In this case, a child’s ignorance on this topic is NOT bliss.
