Private sex lessons for Korean students

Caption: A scene from the Korean film, “Private Tutor: Advanced Course”. I looked this up purely for research purposes.

Sex education is often a battleground topic in culture wars. Decades ago, religious groups and the political right were opposed to the very idea of sex education. Today, the political left weaponise sex education to promulgate their crazy Marxist dogmas.

Now, in what sounds like the premise for a really bad porno, South Korean parents are hiring private sex education tutors. Bow-chicka-bow? Quote:

Sex education has never been an easy subject to broach in school. You got a bunch of pubescent teenagers learning about sex in the most sanitized ways. That picture that looks like a cow head is actually the female reproductive system and a banana is a penis. Nevertheless, you come out of sex ed with a basic knowledge of how women get pregnant and the ranking of STDs from the deadliest to the just bothersome. So if you got STD symptoms you pray it?s just Chlamydia and not AIDS. But one thing sex ed doesn?t broach is the role of men and women and what constitutes a healthy relationship. End of quote.

Which, let?s be frank, is perfectly fine. Because the problem is, once you get beyond teaching the basics ?in the most sanitized ways?, you?re treading on dangerous ground. Anything beyond that is leaving the realm of objective information, and straying into the realm of ethics and morality.

Which is not the realm of high school teachers. Because, here?s the thing: not everyone agrees on ethics and morality. What may be morally correct for a Greens-voting, rainbow-flag-waving teacher, may most certainly not be for many parents. In fact, some parents in Australia are so dismayed by the whackadoodle Marxist nonsense being peddled in school sex-ed curricula that they founded a website exposing its egregious nonsense.

This is not a problem for any particular political side. Conservatives in the West are dismayed at the extreme ?progressive? ideals promoted by sex ed curricula. In Korea, parents are upset for the opposite reason: trying to impose extremely conservative views. Quote:

However, the government of South Korea has some antiquated views on women and men and they decided to implement them in their sex education curriculum?The new guidelines teach these kids gems like:

?Females sexually respond to one specific male, whereas males can have sexual intercourse extensively with women they are only sexually attracted to.?

?People of the opposite sex should not be alone together by themselves.?

?For men who spend a lot of money on dates, it is natural he would want to be compensated for the money spent. In such cases, unwanted date rape can occur.?

?Women have to work on their appearance and men have to work on improving their financial capabilities.? End of quote.

Now, you might agree with some of those claims, or you might find them outrageously sexist ? and there?s the problem.

Many parents are going to have very different ideas of what constitutes acceptable sexual and social morality. That?s their lookout. It?s not up to you or I to dictate to other people what morals they?re allowed to teach their children.

It?s most certainly not up to the government.

The family is the core of human society, and one of our most sacred spaces. Which is why, of course, meddlesome authoritarians throughout history have been so determined to undermine it. Plato wanted to erase the family altogether, and totalitarians have followed in his wake ever since. Nazis, Fascists, Marxists: all have tried to subvert the family to the authority of the state. Even today, Canadian authorities may remove children if their families refuse to conform to the crazy dogmas of gender activists. Quote:

Some parents, disgusted by the guidelines, are now enrolling their kids in private Sex education classes. Private schools that teach sex ed is flourishing with parents spending up to $45 an hour.

Additionally, teachers, now are forced to teach their own curriculum making up for the obtuse sex ed guidelines. Yim Yi Rang is one high school teacher who is teaching her students about sexual harassment, menstruation, LGBT rights, along with the myriad of other sexual topics. End of quote.


At least in Korea, parents still have the option of trying to combat state-enforced morality. In Australia, education bureaucracies go to extraordinary length to keep parents in the dark about what their children are learning. Children whose parents dissent are bullied and ostracised.

But if parents do so of their own choice, then that?s their prerogative. It?s not up to meddling teachers to decide unilaterally that their views on morality are the ?correct? ones, any more than it?s the government?s. Because, here’s the thing: if you think your opinions must override anyone else’s…you’re a bigot.
