Planned Parenthood sex education for teens: 50 Shades of Grey, sex shops, scatology

posted at 12:01 pm on July 15, 2014 by Ed Morrissey

Live Action has released the second undercover video in its new series, Planned Parenthood Exposed, which so far has focused on its sex education to teens — efforts that earn them millions in federal funding. Last month, teen sex education included instruction on sadomasochistic practices, which initially prompted Planned Parenthood to announce that the “educator” had been terminated, a claim that turned out to be false. Education has improved since that last tape, as we see below from the Colorado office of Planned Parenthood. It’s been expanded to discussions of golden showers, scatology, and encouraging underage teens to browse at sex shops, which is illegal:

Again, remember that the student in this educational setting is supposed to be 15 years old. The counselor encourages the teen to pursue pornography and hide it from her parents. Some of this wouldn’t be very good advice even for an adult, but for a teen it’s entirely inappropriate. Sex education at that stage should consist of the basics, encouraging safety rather than deviant and dangerous activities for thrills.

One piece of advice that really should offend across the spectrum is the suggestion that the teen should read 50 Shades of Grey as a textbook on how to explore sexuality. The book features a series of submissive fantasies involving the main female character, a motif that drew some considerable criticism on publication for its message to adults. Should taxpayers fund education that encourages young girls to learn submission to pain-inducing practices as a normal part of sexual expression?

Life Site News notes that this isn’t just a single misstep:

LiveAction says a number of extremely questionable and disturbing marketing practices and counsel from Planned Parenthood are seen on its web site.

Examples include the “resource” website Go Ask Alice! (describing, among other things, how sexual partners can beat each other) and the sponsorship of a seminar for educators called “50 Shades of Safe” (seeking to explain “how a BDSM relationship is successfully navigated between sexual partners”).

“The Planned Parenthood-approved advice of ‘do whatever you want, but just use a safe word’ glorifies kids acting out rape scenarios,” Rose said.  “It’s extremely dangerous counseling: they’re undermining and invalidating the crucially important rule of no means no.”

Live Action is calling on Colorado residents to contact their local officials, including school administrators.  “Parents need to get on the phone right now,” Rose said, “and ask their principals and superintendents, ‘Do you have a relationship with Planned Parenthood?  Are you okay with this sort of behavior being pushed on my children?’  This won’t stop until people take action locally for their kids.”

It’s bad advice for adults, and worse for teens. And your tax dollars are funding it.

verbaluce is so predictable.

Remember “Brave New World”?

To think later in life Huxley thought he got it all wrong with “Brave New World”. Little did he know that he just got the time period wrong.

Orgy-porgy and all that stuff.

You take your children to a dentist, because they offer services that you as a parent don’t provide. Giving your child sexual advice (SAFE SEXUAL ADVICE) is something a parent can and should offer their children. Unless you are okay abdicating your parental responsibility to an institution. Good luck with that– When you son comes home arrested for date rape, or your daughter gets abused- remember that you abdicated this responsibility.

+1

Also, if verbaluce doesn’t want us railing against PP then I’m sure verbaluce would support not forcing us to fund it.

gwelf on July 15, 2014 at 2:53 PM

I’d want my daughters to be properly and intelligently informed.

verbaluce on July 15, 2014 at 1:04 PM

Then ummm … why don’t you inform them?

darwin on July 15, 2014 at 2:18 PM

Progressives abdicate such things to their betters.

Really? I’d only talk to my daughter about anal sex and bondage if she asked about those topics. My guess is few parents would bring up these subjects. Are you saying that you’ve spoken to your children or grandchildren about those things and that you initiated the conversation?

But I have spoken to them about normal sex, so I don’t consider that abdication of my responsibilities–or make it more likely that my daughter gets abused.

There are nuances here that you’re missing.

I know of NO teenager that thinks past slot A goes into slot B. And your children are exposed to subjects like anal sex and bondage on television then you had better be talking about it. If you somehow think that Planned Parenthood is giving your children advice then your daughter is MORE likely to get abused.

But I have spoken to them about normal sex, so I don’t consider that abdication of my responsibilities–or make it more likely that my daughter gets abused.

If you don’t understand that an outside institution teaching your daughter about BDSM practices (which involve piercing, bloodletting, burning, whipping, and branding) doesn’t make her more likely to be abused- you are off your rocker. A teenage girl does not understand the “nuanced” difference between consensual play and real abuse.

I would tell her not to follow your advice on anything. You should not even be commenting here.

The hyphen is just to set off what I’m responding to. People in the past have said there wasn’t enough difference between the two, so I’ve tried to do better.

Here’s a couple more you should mention:

No one was murdered at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

Akzed on December 15, 2013 at 9:17 AM

What happened to the rubble? There were seven WTC buildings that disappeared, did you know that? Seven?! Not just three, seven. Where is the 400+ floors of rubble? 1,000,000 tons of steel in WTC 1 & 2 alone- where’d it go?

jim56 on July 15, 2014 at 3:45 PM

My fifteen year old son recently asked about anal sex. I told him it can be more dangerous due to the presence of blood, and that it can hurt the girl a lot.

Funny that. Telling someone to go eff themselves and their kids is what got jimbo banned previously.

Planned Parenthood sex education for teens: 50 Shades of Grey, sex shops, scatology

These Leftists don’t even want the individual Prole to develop his/her own kinks and fantasies on their own.

But, maybe by doing this, they’re actually living out theirs.

Dr. ZhivBlago on July 15, 2014 at 4:19 PM

I’m shocked! Another leftist organization exposed for lying and inappropriate behavior? Say it isn’t so!

conservativecaveman on July 15, 2014 at 4:34 PM

Jim’s a nasty loser. So quick to give up his job.

“Inappropriate” is what our Regime is all about.

Appropriate is the new inappropriate, don’t you know.

Sherman1864 on July 15, 2014 at 9:10 PM

I’m sure we’ll get to see all of Live Action’s footage.

verbaluce on July 15, 2014 at 12:19 PM

You know, you SAY that, and yet, for so many of these stings, the unedited footage was posted online. So actually, my money’s on yes, because I am not exercising selective memory about these things.

You’d like to see PP shut down. I see their advocacy and efforts as hugely beneficial to public health…esp. for low income women.

verbaluce on July 15, 2014 at 1:04 PM

Great. Then go kickstart them or something. I could compile a laundry list of organizations that are “hugely beneficial” to the public but most of them don’t do it on the public dime, nor would I insist on such.

SO… you want PP out of the crosshairs, then get them off the government dole. And maybe one day you’ll see how much more free you’ll be to let these guys talk all the 50 Shades they want and cheer them on because it will be nobody’s business but theirs.

The Schaef on July 15, 2014 at 11:03 PM

My allegedly “pro-life” and “fiscally conservative” rep voted thumbs up to include about $500MM for the pervs at PP.

How on earth are we not able to field a few reasonable candidates who can articulate the nonsense in funding these creeps??

I reckon Paul Ryan and company like this crap.
