Planned Parenthood’s director of sex education claims all children are born ‘sexual’

An executive director of Planned Parenthood’s sex education branch claimed that children are born ‘sexual’ and called for comprehensive sex education beginning in kindergarten, as well as porn literacy for older age groups.

Bill Taverner, who has advocated for sex education at US congressional briefings, said in 2015 that “we are all sexual beings from birth to death.”

He said: ‘[We have] in our society, an assumption of the asexuality of people with intellectual disabilities.

“It’s a perpetuated myth, and in reality we are all sexual beings from birth to death,” said the executive director of New Jersey-based Planned Parenthood.

The sentiment was echoed by Planned Parenthood, which said in a guide titled “Fundamentals of Teaching Sexuality” that “sexuality is a part of life through all ages and stages.”

“Babies, the elderly and everyone in between can experience sexuality.”

But many have criticized Taverner’s unearthed comments, saying the ideas he spread in fact “promote pedophilia.”

Just three years earlier, Taverner said that children of a certain age should be taught about pornography in sex education, a position he has held until at least February of last year, Fox News reported.

In a 2012 interview, Taverner said young people crave information, adding that the Internet is a “huge influence on how people learn about sexuality.”

“There is access to erotica, to pornography, that was very different for young people 30 years ago,” he said.

‘It’s [was] certainly not as accessible, certainly not as instantaneous, so there is a lot of information that is useful.’

The interviewer interrupted Taverner and said, “something is wrong,” to which Taverner agreed, saying, “something is wrong, a lot is wrong,” but added, “there are good things, too.”

Speaking to Fox News, Taverner did not clarify what he meant when he said that, but in a 2021 interview he said that sex educators “never wanted pornography to be the primary source of sex education” but “instruction needs to be tailored to modern times”.

The comments have been criticized on social media, with some describing the beliefs as

The comments have been criticized on social media, with some describing the beliefs as “incredibly vile” and “pedophile thinking”.

‘If we talk about porn, [some think] Is it going to make people want to see it? Which is the same kind of flawed premise as if we were to teach about condoms,” she said.

“It’s going to make people want to have sex with condoms, maybe that’s not a bad thing.”

She added that porn literacy would help students clarify their values ​​on the subject and meet ‘people where they are’.

“If this is what they’re doing with their cell phones and tablets and their laptops, then we need to change our education and stop doing the banana in a condom and thinking like, you know, we’ve done our thing,” he said. she said.

‘We need to present opportunities for young people to think, for example, about their values.

‘You know, let’s do an opinion activity. Let’s do the ethics of porn. And that does not mean that there is a correct answer.

Planned Parenthood’s sex education arm hopes to provide training materials on the topic nationwide and hosts the largest conference for sex educators in the US.

Taverner has said in the past that some parts of comprehensive sex education should start in kindergarten.

“Sex education is not isolated at a particular point in a person’s life, it is an ongoing process,” he said.

Young children are learning about sexuality from the attitudes their parents display. [and] when we think of K-12 education, we may be talking about what makes a family, we may be talking about disease prevention.

‘All of that lays the groundwork for a basic understanding that is useful for future conversations when we talk about condoms. [and] pregnancy talks.

“Age-appropriate sex education is very important. And we have to let our experts guide us.’

However, not everyone agrees with Taverner, who has been dismissed by some who have described this perspective as ‘child exploitation’.

‘What an incredibly vile thing to think and say publicly and what a vile organisation. Daily in awe of the debauchery of the Marxist LEFT in the US,’ wrote one Twitter user.

Another said: ‘From the people who make money Killing Kids. What kind of monsters are we letting roam this land?’

Meanwhile, others described Taverner’s beliefs as harmful to young children: ‘That’s how you identify pedophilic thinking. When some claim that a child is a sexual being, they promote pedophilia.’

Another said: ‘No respect for children in or out of the womb?!?!?!’

Another said: ‘Human reproduction is taught in school at secondary level, that’s fine. There was a time in this country when the sexual exploitation of children was, and in my opinion still is, wrong.

While one commented on the organization’s fundamentals when discussing Taverner’s comments: ‘Pushing for it to be normal. Another step in the ruin of society. Without moral.
