Hetro- or Homo- sexual, I do not care. If you and your partner are over the age of consent, generally accepted as 18 years, you may do as you like. All I ask is that you keep your bedroom theatrics in the privacy of your own home.
I realize family dynamics have changed; we have single parents, nuclear families (a female and a male parent), we have dual sex parents (two females or two males), and a host of imaginative genders, as well as polymorphous parenting. In each of these parenting relationships comes the risk for divorce, death of one or both parents, long and short-term disease, extended family, and abuse of all types and sizes. No single parenting relationship is immune, especially to death and disease.
We can find the same family organizations, the same risks, and the same problems with abuse throughout history. Nothing in the modern family is new or unique. Greece, Rome, Egypt, Babylon, Israel, all communities of ancient date report the same problems in family dynamics, mainly to the detriment of the society practicing any family relationship except nuclear families. I am not the morality police, I am not the thought police, and I am not going to tell you how to live your life and handle your consequences. Heck, I have enough trouble just keeping my consequences dealt with; you may do as you see fit.
June has been taken over by “Pride” month, and the entire month set apart for the expression of sexual freedom and taking sexual freedom to parade bedroom lifestyles in public. Frankly, as long as your partner is over the age of consent, you may act as you want; please keep your lifestyle in your bedroom and out of the public square. However, “Pride” month refutes this plea, demands attention, and refuses to allow the privacy of choices to remain private. Herein lay the problem. Imagine a heterosexual “Pride” parade; would it even be allowed; I have my doubts. Celebrations honoring the role of the nuclear family in society would be and have been attacked by the same people preaching Pride, unity, fairness, and demanding their rights to act foolishly in public.
Here is the problem, opportunistic people have made and continue to make a lot of money detailing their lifestyles and bedroom practices. I do not mind, provided the adult restrictions remain in place on adult topics. But, when specifically peddled to children, in schools paid for through forced taxation, the schools should not be grooming children and providing materials that are more specifically adult related topics. K-12 education has sexualized the children of the world so much that it is being reported that first-graders are being taught how “good it feels to touch themselves.” Essentially, children barely able to walk, talk, and sit still, are being taught masturbation. Their organs have not developed, their understanding remains cloudy, and they are being groomed for sexual perverts and abuse. Either from themselves, family, or strangers. We should weep for the lost innocence of the children!
Want the true horror story; long-term studies on sexualized children support the facts that many of these toddlers will commit suicide, attempt suicide, or fall into destructive relationships and cycles of abuse. All because from their earliest memory, their lives have revolved around some mystical belief regarding sex being the answer to all of life’s problems. When the reality of sexual accountability, responsibility, and the dangers and damage sex can bring to a body, it will be too late.
Childhood depression is up, anxiety, PTSD related to sexual encounters and personal abuse is up, drug use is out of control, and the root causes are the disconnect between reality and personal belief that sex comes without cost or consequence. Entire smut markets have become open to the youngest of children selling sex and sexual lifestyles, and many times the child is not ready for these consequences. Tom Sawyer is banned reading material, but 50-Shades of Gray is not; consider what else is in the child’s library at school. As a substitute, I was appalled when a box of suggested reading materials was delivered to the classroom, where 99% of the books were about homosexual relationships, coping with homosexual feelings, and discovering homosexual lifestyles.
To fully understand the sexualization of children, one must first cut through the hype. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC), which is another topic entirely, was cheering the drop in statistics of live births of children to mothers in the 10-14-year-old age range from 8,500 in 2000 to 2,200 in 2016. Would someone please tell me why the CDC counts live birth statistics in the 10-18-year-old range as if a pregnancy was a disease akin to chickenpox, malaria, Ebola, while the Health and Human Services (HHS) report pregnancies for adults? Next, why aren’t pregnancies, including abortions, in 10-14-year-olds considered what they are, a tragedy of epic proportion? A ten-year-old girl should not be having sex as her body is not ready for the burdens of pregnancy, her mind is not prepared for the hormone dump, and she runs a considerable risk of just having sex, let alone getting pregnant.
I have reports from family court proceedings where young girls are pressured into having sex and getting pregnant as early as possible to increase welfare funding—taking a moral issue and making it a legal matter and a social problem. Where is the criminal justice system in holding the parent/s responsible for pressuring children to become grown-ups? Why is the education system, paid for through forced taxation, allowed to groom children for sex but cannot be held accountable for failing to teach reading, writing, and arithmetic?
I am not a girl, obviously, but all through junior high and high school. I watched my friends who were girls suffer over when to have sex, how to have sex, and the resulting depression, anxiety, pregnancy, sexually transmitted diseases, and other consequences of active sex lives. More than one girl suffered abusive relationships or sexual partners who left physical wounds, emotional and mental wounds behind after sexual captivity. I had acquaintances with guys who suffered from fathering a child, but the mother went and had an abortion. The psychological and physical pain of being excluded from this decision destroyed the fathers. Yet, the father’s rights are never part of the equation in making these decisions, even though it took two to create the pregnancy.
High school, Camden, Maine, Senior Year; I became good friends with a bi-sexual couple. Together they were lesbians, but their relationship allowed sleep-overs with guys. One member of this couple discussed how she became a lesbian and the physical pain she endured to become “comfortable being sexually active in a lesbian relationship.” In fact, the horror stories she related are not anything new in the homosexual community, as I discovered over the years in counseling people both inside and outside the military. The grooming of young boys for adult men is even more tragic and heartbreaking! Yet, the LGBTQ+ communities refuse to discuss these experiences, the consequences, and the lasting mental and emotional scars, especially during June’s Pride celebrations.
What is worse, none of the literature discussing physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual injuries is not allowed in public schools. It would disturb the mythical instruction and grooming of innocent children about the realities of having sex too early or the problems with homosexual sexual relations. Parents, celebrate June Pride month if you want, but please watch your children and teenagers. Please, for the love of your children, help them to make intelligent and informed decisions. Better still, remove them from the perverts in K-12, so your child has a chance to learn how to read, write, and think logically through mathematical equations before it is too late.
