Don't Teach About Sex

Don't teach them the basics:
The “heterosexist” complaint stems from student beliefs that sex education focuses too much on the fact that sex is a reproductive activity which often results in pregnancy. Students say they’d prefer that their sex lessons instead highlight how exciting and fun sex is.

Students also grumble that sex education portrays women as passive participants in sex and fails to feature discussions of gay and transgender sex. Thus, it “is out of touch with many young people’s lives.”

“Young people’s feedback indicates that when sex education is negative, heterosexist — or in any other way seems irrelevant to their experiences, or judgmental — they switch off,” explained Pandora Pound, the study’s lead author, according to NBC News.
Nature is sexist-keep it out of the classroom!
