These Horrendous \'Sexual Health\' Flyers Found In A School Show Just How Damaging Bad Sex Ed Can Be

These Horrendous 'Sexual Health' Flyers Found In A School Show Just How Damaging Bad Sex Ed Can Be

The Debrief: Do they actually teach teens THIS?

In today's horrifying sex ed news, a public school administration worker found these sexual health flyers in a storage rooms box and posted pictures of them on Reddit. They are from 2012 (although they may as well be from 1912) and although it's unclear whether they were intended to be handed out through the school or elsewhere, this flyer is the most ill-informed, factually inaccurate things we've ever seen. And it's meant for children.  

Here are just a few gems from The World's Worst Sex Education Flyer (TM). Also, their grammar is awful, just FYI. 

1. Women don't get aroused in the same way as men (and French kissing is evil)

'Males are stimulated differently than females. A behaviour like "French Kissing" will lead a guy to become sexually aroused but a girl will simply feel more affection towards him'

2. 'No' doesn't always mean no

They seriously said this - 'Everybody has three types of language- verbal, body and what you wear. When it comes to saying “No” in dating relationship, your words, your body and your clothes all must be saying it!'

3. The only form of 'safe sex' involves waiting until marriage 

‘Those who are engaging in sexual intercourse and are relying on condoms, pills or any other form of contraception are playing ‘sexual roulette’. It’s like loading six-shooter with one bullet, spinning the barrel and pulling the trigger when the gun is pointed at your head. You may end up ‘safe’, or you may end up dead.’ 

'Sexual relationship belongs only in marriage where a man and a woman have made a life-long commitment to each other and are open to the gift of children.'

4. Oh, and BTW, condoms don't really work guys... 

'A condom has a failure rate of 14% in preventing pregnancy, [and] is ineffective in protecting against six out of eight most common sexually transmitted diseases.'

So next time you're wondering why we still live in a world where consent is chronically misunderstood, sexual harassment is rife in the workplace and people are handed a six-month sentence for rape, remember that kids are still being given dangerous information like this on the regular.
