Mitt Romney’s Dirty Mind
Mitt Romney continues to make the most inane statements. I am just amazed that he has ever been elected to any office. He has, of course because he is rich and money will ultimately buy any office in the country.
On Thursday, while campaigning in South Carolina, he criticized Democratic rival Barack Obama for supporting age-appropriate sex education for children as young as kindergartners.
“Senator Obama is wrong if he thinks science-based sex education has any place in kindergarten,” Romney told some 150 people at a restaurant in the northern part of the state. We should be working to clean up the filthy waters our kids are swimming in.”
I’m sure that is a popular thing to say among the backward, bible thumping conservatives but the fact is Mitt, it’s a stupid thing to say. Social scientists have agreed for decades that age-appropriate sex education should begin at age 4-5 or even earlier depending upon the precociousness of the child.
Let me tell you something, Mitt. Sex education is not “filthy waters.” Filthy waters are created by adults and it is adults who love to swim in them. Its not the kids who made Playboy and Penthouse and Hustler hugely successful companies. It is not the kids who turned the adult movie business into a multi-billion dollar industry. It is not the kids who have made porn sites the most visited sites by far on the net. Nope, thats us, the adults. Why? Because we love all this juicy substitution sex. Why? Um, maybe because we never had any proper, healthy sex education when we were young?? Ya think?
The only thing filthy is that we continue to teach our children that good, healthy, feel-good sex is filthy. Just like we were taught. God, are we ever going to GROW UP? When are we, as supposedly civilized and educated adults going to finally be able to admit that sex is a healthy and important part of life, that the sexual urge is a natural and powerful one that we all share (yes, even our children have it just like we did then) and that there is nothing “dirty” about sex.
The plague of STD’s and teen and even earlier pregnancies are not the result of sex education, they are the result of NO sex education.
Jesus, this guy is more dangerous than Bush! Can you imagine how far back he would turn the scientific clock if he became president? It’s absolutely frightening! And the Repub’s are sure to make him the frontrunner because of it.
Mitt better hope that we don’t find any skeletons in his sexual closet (but wouldn’t it be fun if we did?)
