Sex Respect

My thoughts this week are (unusually) a little political. I’m concerned enough about Sex Ed in schools to get on the bandwagon. You see, without teaching boys (and girls for that matter) some proper dos and don’t, we’re in danger of seeing the already high numbers of girl-groping incidents rise. In fact, I read a startling fact today: in the UK, 1 in 3 school girls experience unwanted sexual abuse – from boyfriends, friends and relatives. How utterly hideous is that? And, I’m presuming those offenders can only claim ignorance if their education hasn’t set them straight.

So, the House of Lords is considering making an amendment to the Children & Families Bill which would require all state-funded schools to teach Relationship and Sex Education.

Hallelujah, I say.

In an era where we’re still discovering more of these Jimmy Saville types together with an infinite and readily accessible amount of Internet porn at under-age fingertips, the threat is constant. And frightening.

So let’s educate them. The kids need to learn as much as possible about sexual consent and respectful relationships.
