Whatever Happened To "Reading, Writing And Arithmetic"?

Remember those three words?  They were considered to be basic bulwarks of subject matter taught be our schools.  But that was back in those antiquated days when the average American regularly (and correctly) used words of four syllables or more and when he/she could write sentences without the aid of a "spell-checker" or "grammar checker".  That was back in the days when academic achievement was valued, not belittled so that "under-achievers" wouldn't get their poor widdle feel-bads thrown out of joint.  That was when "esteem" was earned by effort rather than considered "granted" because you occupied a school desk.

Well, thanks to the National Education Association (another union that needs to be thrown in the trash), new ideas are emerging for a "brave new world-order"!  Oh, yippeee!  And with what are those three staples (reading, writing and arithmetic) being replaced?

Be sitting down, have the smelling salts handy, and understand that I'm not making this up!

The new staples of modern, progressive education are:
  • Oral sex
  • Masturbation
  • Orgasms
That is precisely what Diane Schneider of the National Education Association told a United Nations panel this past week.  The panel was on "combatting homophobia and transphobia".  Read it at this Lifesitenews article.  She's arguing for "more inclusive sex education".  Moreover, she says and I quote "She claimed that the idea of sex education remains an oxymoron if it is abstinence-based, or if students are still able to opt-out."   Not only that, but "opposed to homosexuality are stuck in a binary box that religion and family create."

That's right!  You Christan parents are knuckle-dragging neanderthals who know nothing - absolutely nothing at all about raising your own children, and you need these, uh, "enlightened, progressive" NEA types to brainwash your children of any scintilla of morality - for their own good, of course - to free them from the "binary boxes"!  Got that?

Of course the other panelists just ate it up.  I would expect nothing else from the United Nations, another monstrosity that needs to wither in the dung heap of history.  I am not being facetious in opining that for the good of the future of civilization, both of these monstrosities - the NEA and the UN, need to be scrapped.
