Sexual Rights Agenda: Confuse the Masses

Featured

Sexual Rights Advocates claim victory for the lowest teen birth rates in decades. But, why are the rates at an all-time low? Is it really due to “safe sex” education in the schools and the push to get all girls on birth control?

Or, are teens making better decisions and refusing to engage in sex, so that they can focus on their future?

It is laughable that Sexual Rights Advocates claim responsibility for the majority of teens delaying sex! Their programs do not teach Sexual Risk Avoidance (SRA) skills to abstain from sex. In fact, most of their sex programs teach Sexual Risk Reduction (SRR) skills to “avoid unprotected sex” and “to enjoy the pleasures of “safe sex.”

How can teens focus on their future in such a sexually charged climate?

The goal of the Sexual Rights Agenda is to confuse the uninformed public. They do this by masking the content of most sex programs, keeping the media hype going, and demanding that hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars continue to flow in their direction.

It is true that teen pregnancy and birth rates are at their lowest in decades. Yet, the Sex Cartels demand that “more taxpayer money is needed, state laws must be changed, and more must be done, because one unplanned pregnancy is just too many.”

This false narrative convinces school districts and legislators that only SRR (“safe sex”) programs will work, because “all teens will have sex.” These programs are pushed by the Sex Cartels, including Planned Parenthood, SIECUS, LGBTQ, Campaign to Prevent Teen Pregnancy, Advocates for Youth, and the CDC.

However, if one really looks at the data a different narrative emerges. In South Carolina (SC), SRR advocates receive millions in taxpayer dollars annually to expand into more and more schools. And, they claim that they are responsible for the dramatic 68% decrease in pregnancy rates for teens (15-17) and 80% decrease for adolescents (10-14). (SC DHEC 2015)

This decline is not a phenomenon, but consistent with national trends. Plus, the CDC’s YRBS (Youth Risk Behavior Survey) for SC reveals that for almost 20-years, most sexually experienced teens have NOT used contraception. They are not practicing “safe-sex.” There has been a:

  •  26% increase (2005-2013) in teens who did not use a condom during last sexual intercourse.
  • 83% of girls did not use birth control pills to prevent pregnancy before last sexual intercourse. (UNCHANGED since 1995)
  • 97% of girls did not use an IUD before last sexual intercourse.

The SC YRBS also reveals that only 32% of high school teens were sexually active at the time of the survey. In addition, there was a:

  • 28% decrease in high school teens who have EVER had sex. (1995-2013)
  • 49% decrease in 9th grade teens who have EVER had sex. (1995-2013)
  • 30% decrease in high school teens who are sexually active. (1995-2013)

In other words, over the past 18 years:

  • Sexually active SC high school teens have not been practicing “safe-sex.” (SRR education has failed in SC for decades and  they don’t want you to know it!)
  • The majority of SC high school teens were not having sex and/or have NEVER had sex!
  • The percentage of sexually experienced high school teens has decreased steadily since 1995.

Most SC students are not duped by the “all teens are having sex, so you better protect yourself” mantras that are chanted in sex classes. Rather, smart teens embrace the SRA (abstinence) messages promoted by their parents, churches, and agencies that teach Evidence-based Abstinence Education.

Teens will live up to high standards! So, we should set high standards for them and for ourselves.

Such progress bodes well for SC, but only if the current trend continues. SRA (abstinence) should be taught as a separate component for all school age children. To omit this vital perspective from schools is censorship.

 

“Safe Sex” education sets our kids up for failure and it defeats the purpose of quality education.

 

 

Prevention: “Consent” for Drunk Sex?

Assault 2Sexual assaults must stop on college campuses. Victims should have legal recourse and perpetrators must be prosecuted. But, teaching students to “cover their ass” by getting “consent affirmations,” will do little to protect them.  

  

There is something else going on. 

College women tell us that they only had sex because they were drunk. That they often get drunk so that they will have the “nerve” to hook up at parties. This is nothing new.

Women and men have used booze forever to loosen up socially.

So, if the feds were serious about protecting students and preventing sexual assaults, they would crack down on illegal, underage drinking on federally funded college campuses. Research has shown that college women (18-25) who consume alcohol are at greater risk of sexual assault, STIs, HIV, and unwanted pregnancies.

Add to that, hook ups and regret sex.

The feds have used the sexual assault “crisis” to advance another agenda. Under the guise of prevention, the feds have expanded Title IX regulations to mandate all colleges receiving federal funding to specifically target “sexual violence based on gender, sexual orientation, and gender identity.” 

The feds used Harvard University to force precedence for the nation in how to deal with, not prevent, sexual assaults. Twenty-eight Harvard law professors protested the new policy as nothing more than “political correctness run amuck,” and also exposed another hidden motive of the administration:

 “In addition, the new policy established a university-wide Office for Sexual and Gender-Based Dispute Resolution at Harvard composed of trained investigators who are responsible for handling sexual and gender-based misconduct complaints against students ranging from harassment to rape.”

Progressive policies are almost always about advancing the Sexual Rights Agenda. Title IX will increase protections for “consensual sex” and gender identity issues, while offering little protection from sexual assaults or the allegations of such crimes.

Think about it! Enforcing underage drinking laws will not advance the Sexual Rights Agenda. They need the free flow of alcohol, drugs, and sex on college campuses to continue in business. If the alcohol dries up, their porn, abortion, and other sex industries will also suffer!

So, colleges will comply in 2015 with expanded Title IX regulations to keep their federal funding. They will also continue to provide plenty of free condoms, rape kits, IUDs, Plan B, referrals for abortions, and counselors to assure victims that sexual assault “is not their fault.”

And, students will be “trained” on how to “consent” to drunk sex.
