The Left’s Scorched-Earth War Against Sacred Sexuality

On May 20, 2022, Bill Maher, the host of “Real Time with Bill Maher” on HBO, spoke out very boldly against the LGBT community’s stance on children. He stated:
I think we should applaud Bill Maher for his defense of children. His comments also highlight one of the central questions of the twenty-first century:
As many parents have finally realized, the Marxist Left’s track record in Soviet Russia, China, North Korea, and now America demonstrates their belief that children are owned by the state.
But this is not a new phenomenon. It stems from the much larger controversy that has raged for millennia:
When militant anti-theists state that there is no God and thus no basis for morality, unfettered arrogance and hell can quickly follow. As I wrote in the essay “Marriage and Family and the God Who Created Everything,”
The Left pushes the idea that children have the right to be emancipated from the oppression of their parents. But they never suggest that children have sacred, inalienable rights that come from God—rights that must never be violated by a monolithic dictatorship or parents who want to bend reality for their own pleasure or convenience.
Children have many sacred rights, but two of the most important are these:
These are sacred rights, but they have also been the foundation for the maturation of emotionally healthy and loving children since the beginning of the human race. It is true that not every child sees these rights fulfilled. Some children lost their parents and had to be adopted. But unfortunate happenstance is very different from the normalization of systems in which the child is denied these fundamental rights because of the personal desires of adults.4
With the fulfillment of these two “Sacred Rights of Children,” children can grow into emotionally mature and healthy adults who have a better chance of finding love, getting married, and having beautiful children of their own.
The Marxist Left rejects the sacred rights of children entirely. As Maher stated, children are cannon fodder in a war waged for the total control of human life. Vladimir Lenin declared, “Give me four years to teach the children, and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.”5
The Left is determined to own our children because then they will own them as adults. For example, how does the masking of our school children benefit children? It’s not for the prevention of Covid. It’s all about training children to submit to control. Seth Dillon, the CEO of the satire website The Babylon Bee, recently stated that satire is getting more difficult because reality has become increasingly absurd, like the real headline that he quoted: “Stanford students are more likely to wear masks on bicycles than helmets.”6
Forcing the wearing of masks is bad enough, but it pales next to the Left’s efforts to destroy sacred sexuality, gender, and the two-parent family structure. Now, in 2022, parents have become painfully aware of the evil and destructive hypersexualization content placed in front of their children in K-12 schools. I won’t go into those horrifying details here.
Instead, I will address two questions: Where did this rancid material come from and how did it happen?
The Left has been waging a scorched-earth war against sacred sexuality for decades. It’s also important to state that not all of the individuals and leaders who are complicit in the spread of hypersexualization are Marxists.
The primary messages in hypersexualization are that “children are sexual from birth” and “any and all sexual activity is normal.” There are no boundaries.
Those messages were given the weight of professorial documentation in the 1940s and ’50s, starting with Alfred C. Kinsey and Wardell B. Pomeroy. They co-authored the books Sexual Behavior in the Human Male and Sexual Behavior in the Human Female. Their books have had an enormous impact on sex education professionals, to such a degree that we can accurately state:
In their text on the human male, in Chapter 5, “Early Sexual Growth and Activity,” Kinsey and Pomeroy focused on “the activities of the younger, pre-adolescent boy.”7 Their research documented sexual activity with boys as young as five months old. They wrote (in describing the boys’ behavior during orgasm) that in some cases, there were symptoms of:
Kinsey’s comment immediately following the above passage revealed his deep callousness to the children’s plight:
One of Kinsey’s charts documents a four-year-old boy having twenty-six orgasms in a twenty-four-hour period.9 He wrote that “Even the youngest males, as young as 5 months in age, are capable of such repeated reactions.”11
The material in The Kinsey Reports is repugnant and shocking. What is worse is that the reports created a false academic legitimacy around aberrant sex that was then taught to so-called professional sex educators across the country. The Kinsey Institute has been going strong for seventy-five years11 and collaborates with many sex education organizations like AASECT, the American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors, and Therapists.13
AASECT’s Sexuality Educator Certification requires that educators attend a “Sexuality Attitude Reassessment” session, known as a “SAR.” Their website states:
What happens at a SAR session? George Leonard, a reporter, attended a SAR event forty years ago and wrote in an article called “The End of Sex,” published in Esquire in December 1982:
After Kinsey died in 1956, Wardell B. Pomeroy became even more prominent and in 1982 promoted the SAR program in an interview with the British Journal of Sexual Medicine. He described the SARs this way:
Lest anyone think, “That was forty years ago!” one of AASECT’s SARs vendors in 2022 is the Institute for Sexuality Education & Enlightenment. Their current description of the SAR program states: “This course has been developed and is based on a method first developed in the 1970s . . .”17
Earlier, in 1968 and 1970, Pomeroy had written two books, Boys and Sex and Girls and Sex, that were placed in many school libraries across the country. In Boys and Sex, he wrote:
In 1977, Pomeroy wrote an article called “A New Look at Incest.” In it, he stated:
We can see then that the crisis in 2022 of the hypersexualization of school children has been building for a very long time. Sex educators in America who adhere to views like those articulated by Kinsey, Pomeroy, and AASECT are not our children’s friends.
To me, they are like drug pushers, but instead of pushing heroin, cocaine, and fentanyl, they are presenting innocent school children with sexual materials and practices that will damage many of them almost beyond repair.
In their attack on sacred sexuality, purity, and morality, this army of sexologists has created a civilization-shattering, existential crisis that parents and others must resolve.
When we examine the radical sexual materials and theories that are presented to our school children in 2022, are there action steps that we can take? Should we ban sex education that includes hypersexualization materials? Should all sex education be banned? Should it be banned for all age groups?
Even parents who oppose hypersexualization might think that banning all sex ed for all ages is extreme and that it’s enough to ban sex education from the lower grades.
The problem is that the sex education industry can’t be trusted in its current form. It’s almost impossible to have complete confidence that any particular school and set of teachers will not teach radicalized hypersexuality. Teaching radical sex education to seventh graders, as their hormones start to rage, is just as problematic as teaching that content to children under twelve years of age. It’s far safer to remove all sex education from schools until the entire hypersexualization industry can be dismantled.
Thus, I recommend these four action steps:
Whatever action steps parents feel are right for them, one thing is clear. Parents must take ownership of their children’s sex education. Our children are not “owned by the state.” Thus, it is far past the time for parents to push back against the Left’s war on sacred sexuality—to push back and to win.
