There are ALOT of people pissed off with Ontario's new sex ed curriculum. Alot of them are framing it as an issue of personal choice and freedom. Bullshit.
Here's the reality: "your kids" eventually grow up to be my problem. Why? Because we live in a society where we affect each other.
What happens when little Timmy grows up to be a homophobic asshole because you didn't teach him to respect people's differences? What happens when little Sally feels ashamed and disgusted of her burgeouning sexuality because you taught her its "sinful"?
"My kid, my choice" works well if neither Timmy nor Sally leave your damn house. The minute they do, they become my problem.
Knowledge saves lives and improves the quality of life for us all.
I have some cool friends who are speaking up in support of education over ignorance. Take a listen.
