Porn Being Taught As ‘Normal’ To Children Via At-Home Sex Ed Digital Media

OPINION | This article contains political commentary which reflects the author's opinion.

Great, because, what better advantage to take of being stuck at home, with only social media and the internet to keep occupied for a majority of the time, than to encourage children to watch some hanky-panky right before their very eyes?

The school systems don’t teach children about taxes but…priorities, I guess.

What a way to encourage children to be contributing, productive members of society.

Just because something has been normalized by society doesn’t mean it is necessarily good. People used to have public executions via hangings in the United States up until the 1900s as a normal method of punishment, too.

According to Breitbart:

Digital media platform Amaze has launched an at-home sex ed video series on Facebook that teaches children home from school during the coronavirus crisis that watching porn is normal.

This at-home sex ed video literally compares how unrealistic porn is … to superhero movies. Yeah, because that’s going to make kids be more responsible about it…

There’s a difference between something being normal and something being glorified without appropriate boundaries.

According to an email to their subscribers, Amaze announced:

In light of COVID-19, we’re rolling out an at-home sex ed series via our Facebook page. Every weekday we’ll share helpful videos, infographics, and resources to help spark important conversations at home.

This week we’re all about general framing to prepare you for conversations, and then in forthcoming weeks we’ll dig deeper into specific topics.

Also, be sure to check out My AMAZE custom playlists (which offer a great way to engage with kids at home!) and our parent resources.

How can this video be considered educational when the ONLY negative aspect it chooses to depict is the fact that porn isn’t real from a physical standpoint?

I can understand that a majority of the clarifications should be up to parental discretion but there are other very obvious negative aspects of porn. For instance, it is very addictive and inevitably skews the perception of the sanctity of sex. In other words, it can be very desensitizing.

Oh, and the whole “love” component… which is pretty important… is very nonexistent in porn.

More from Breitbart:

On Amaze’s website is a New York Times op-ed by Peggy Orenstein from March 2016 that assails abstinence or risk-avoidance sex education, the public health approach to sex ed.

“President Obama is trying – finally – in his 2017 budget to remove all federal funding for abstinence education,” Orenstein wrote, advocating for speaking to children often about sex, to “normalize” it, and “integrate it into everyday life.”

In a post about Amaze’s new sex ed at-home series, Massachusetts Family Institute (MFI) observed:

Is this what amaze.org considers “honest sex education?” Telling kids that it’s perfectly normal to watch porn doesn’t sound medically accurate or age-appropriate to me, and researchers agree. Studies have shown that porn is highly addictive and has negative and detrimental effects on the brain and behaviors of youth.

Studies and organizations address how a hyper-sexualized society will increase the likelihood of boys to normalize violence and sexual harassment towards women, and will increase the likelihood of girls to develop eating disorders and high-risk sexual behavior.

Amaze wants to talk about age appropriate information? How about we teach more about safe-sex, pregnancy, and sexually transmitted diseases before we glorify promiscuity?

While we won’t see pornography disappear from our society, and children/teenagers will inevitably stumble upon it someday, a public health approach for education purposes would be far more effective, according to the National Center on Sexual Exploitation.
