Can We Save Our Children?

Many schools in the USA teach sexual education to our children. How do we know if the curriculum that is being taught has any value? You may ask why wouldn’t we be teaching the right information about sex to our children, the same children that will need to follow in our footsteps and help to ensure that the human race will continue. Many schools teach about Reproduction, Abstinence, HIV/AIDS, STD’s and STI’s. Yet with all of the teaching and changing of laws we still have some outrages statistics:

Adolescents are disproportionately affected by sexually transmitted infections (STIs). Young people ages 15 to 24 represent 25 percent of the sexually active population, but acquire half of all new STIs, which amounts to 9.5 million new cases a year. About 3.2 million adolescent females are infected with at least one of the most common STIs. Human papillomavirus infections account for about half of all STIs diagnosed among 15- and 24-year olds each year. Girls age 15 to 19 have the highest rates of Gonorrhea and the second highest rate of Chlamydia of any age group. Young males also get STIs, but their infections often are undiagnosed and unreported because they are less likely to have symptoms or seek medical care. The most recent data available, in 2000, indicates the estimated direct medical costs for treating young people with sexually transmitted infections was $6.5 billion annually, excluding costs associated with HIV/AIDS. In 2009, approximately 20 percent of new HIV/AIDS diagnoses were young people age 13 to 24.

Although we are teaching some form of sexual education to our children in schools, what they see and learn outside of school is killing them. It is not only what they learn from movies, TV, and music it is what they learn from watching their own families. You may think you hide it but children are great for seeing and learning what we do not want them to learn. If we do not stop things that not only endanger ourselves and other adults that we know are illegal then why teach our children at all.

If we are going to keep establishments open such as adult theaters, bookstores, peepshows and so called Gentlemen Clubs that allow and promote all sorts of sexual conduct to go on in these stores that are open to the public, then we also need to teach our children about what exactly goes on in these stores. How the acts that go on in these stores is not only illegal but can also bring decease and possible death to the people who frequent the stores as well as their families and friends. Along with this we will need to include in the curriculum the actual laws that are supposed to govern these stores and that although laws exists that should make these stores illegal and close them down that many in our society including the law officials would prefer to look the other way and allow these illegal stores to continue. Some of these people including law officials prefer to allow it simply because they do not know or can’t believe it actually goes on, others because they either frequent the stores or in some way benefit from allowing these stores to exist.

What goes on in these stores? Sexual acts for money. Strangers having sex of all kinds. From girls dancing and getting guys and girls off in one way or another, to men having sex with other men. Glory holes where not only are strangers having sex but now they are also having anonymous sex where the only thing they see is the man’s genitals hanging through a hole in the wall or a mouth or anus waiting to take what they stick through the hole. Now you may say well the guys that do this do not affect my family, I live in a well to do neighborhood, or that is only homosexuals that do that, but you are wrong many of the guys who would come into the store I worked at are fathers, brothers, clergy, teachers. Many lived a so called straight family life outside of the store but while in the store would have unprotected sex of all kinds with anything that walked in. How do they get away with this in a store that is open to the public? That answer is easy they pay to get in and or they keep pumping money into the peep show machines and the owners of the stores make thousands of dollars a week from allowing this to go on. When you complain to the law officials they don’t stop it and you get all sorts of reasons why it should go on in these stores or they push you from department to department saying they do not regulate these acts in the stores.

So again I will ask you two questions Can We Save Our Children? Are we teaching the right sexual education in our schools? If you cannot easily and honestly answer both of these questions with YES then we need to start moving now to change the laws that allow these stores to keep making money from sex in stores that are open to the public. We need to educate our children and our parents. We need to close these stores and not allow the license for another store to open. We need to Save Our Children Now!
