Never Mind Sexual Morality

UK Minister says, talk to your kids about sex, but never mind morality.

PARENTS should avoid trying to convince their teenage children of the difference between right and wrong when talking to them about sex, a new government leaflet is to advise. ...
The leaflet comes in the wake of the case of Alfie Patten, the 13-year-old boy from East Sussex who fathered a child with a 15-year-old girl and sparked a debate about how to cut rates of teenage parenthood.

Just what we need in the wake of the 13 year old father.
The leaflet provides technical information on different forms of contraception, from condoms to implants, and will reignite the row over the government’s “value-free” approach to sex education. ...
Linda Blair, a clinical psychologist, said educating older children and teenagers about sex had to be a process of negotiation. “We do not know what is right and wrong; right and wrong is relative, although your child does need clear guidelines,” she said.

I wonder where you will come up with "clear guidelines" if you "don't know what is right and wrong." Do we know smart and stupid? I think we do. That's why I wrote a book called Smart Sex: as a protest against all the Dumb Sex going on in our world.

I think we can also recognize dumb health ministers...
