Why Do Some Adults Want to Sexualize Children?

Is there to be no boundary between what is for adults and what is for children?
Hundreds of Houston-area parents are outraged over a new sex education program that teaches 12-year-old children about oral, anal and vaginal sex – and uses graphic curriculum to instruct students on how to use condoms.
I don't get why some people think it's so important to teach children about graphic sex.  12 year old children.

I felt the same way; until I met the first fourteen year old with her toddler in tow. (Not, I should add, the last.)

I mourn for the need for education, and I mourn for the children, and I mourn that the fathers of these toddlers - the sperm donors who are typically legally adults and should bloody well know better ... - I mourn that these sperm donors are not languishing in prison, all their prison wages going to the children involved.

It is one thing to teach kids the basic mechanics of where babies come from (something I might add that parents should be doing.)It is quite another to give them creative options. It is almost like grooming them to be sexually active which is appalling. But remember that Houston has its first lesbian mayor and a very liberal inner city council. No doubt they feel this is appropriate even in the face of parental protests.
