I think some aspects of sex education are appropriate for a school forum and others that are more personal deserve a different, more private forum. I don't have the answers specifying particulars but I was one of the people deprived of any objective information both at home and since it did not exist in school when I was at that age. However, I remember the lack of maturity among my classmates regarding mutual respect and conduct of integrity in general so I know it is not an easy question to resolve. I, personally would like to see some sort of program instituted that could identify and help resolve the degree of personal dysfunctionality that pervades American lifestyles. I hope it may prevent the unfortunate anti-social, emotional and psychological development of people who would otherwise be positive contributors to society. In my case, I deal with what I consider are "socially induced" (by family members or otherwise) predilections toward shame, guilt and other personal insecurities that fifty years of life-experience has indicated were unwarranted, unjustified and inexcusable spin-offs of a system of competition that favors alpha-male superiority attitudes and rewards the actions of those willing to engage in predatory behavior for the sake of profit and selfish interests. Well, congratulations, the condition of the world today is the fruit of your efforts.When are you going to wake up and realize that humanity is only going to be able to sustain itself when it embraces appropriate disciplines able to meet the responsibilities imposed by the freedom to function as a unified species. If you can't learn that lesson then we all may as well look toward Armageddon as the only saving grace to our own insurmountable capacity for selfishness and corruption .View Thread
