Obama on Kindergarten Sex Ed

ABC reports Barack Obama thinks kindergarteners should be taught sex ed.

ABC News' Teddy Davis and Lindsey Ellerson Report: Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., told Planned Parenthood Tuesday that sex education for kindergarteners, as long as it is "age-appropriate," is "the right thing to do."

"I remember Alan Keyes . . . I remember him using this in his campaign against me," Obama said in reference to the conservative firebrand who ran against him for the U.S. Senate in 2004. Sex education for kindergarteners had become an issue in his race against Keyes because of Obama’s work on the issue as chairman of the health committee in the Illinois state Senate.

"'Barack Obama supports teaching sex education to kindergarteners,'" said Obama mimicking Keyes' distinctive style of speech. "Which -- I didn’t know what to tell him (laughter)."

"But it’s the right thing to do," Obama continued, "to provide age-appropriate sex education, science-based sex education in schools."

Here is a link to the video where he says this.

Maybe if our education system spent more time on the basics (reading, writing, arithmetic, etc.) it wouldn't be turning out so many illiterate young adults who are clueless about anything important.

The last thing in the world kindergarteners need is sex ed of any kind.

They won't even hit puberty for many years, much less be old enough to responsibly engage in sexual activity. They won't hit the age of legal consent for more than 10 years.

And if kindergarteners do need sex ed, then our society is farther gone than even I realized.

There's a bad day coming for these liberals who are so eager to hyper-sexualize our culture and lead people into dangerous and immoral behavior.

They ought to be ashamed...but they're so far gone, they have no shame.

Barack Obama supports sensible, community-driven education for children because, among other things, he believes it could help protect them from pedophiles. A child's knowledge of the difference between appropriate and inappropriate touching is crucial to keeping them safe from predators.

So what Obama is referring to is teaching five year olds about inappropriate touching. The Obama campaign also says that parents would be able to opt out.

What you're talking about is "Don't talk to strangers" and "Don't let anyone touch you down there."

Real complicated; far beyond the ability of average parents to handle.

It also isn't sex ed. Liberals are so obsessed with sex, maybe Obama's just confused.

Bob, so your not against what Obama is supporting. Your just against calling it sex ed?

I agree parents should do this job. Under Obama's plain they can op their child out if they've talked to them about it or if they think they don't need to know about pedophiles.

Pedophiles pray on innocent children. I wish we lived in a world where we didn't have to teach children about them but we don't.

As I said, what you're talking about is "Don't talk to strangers" and "Don't let anyone touch you down there."

That isn't sex ed.

I already took care of that with my children, like any halfway-decent parent would.

We don't need government programs to do what anyone with an IQ above 70 could handle.

But then, His Lordship Obama the Beneficent is such an elitist, maybe he thinks that's as smart as the rest of us are, eh?
