Juneau County DA Claims Sex Education in Schools Is Sexual Assault on Children

Share

According to a district attorney in central Wisconsin, to teach a kid how to use a condom equates sexually assaulting said kid. I can’€™t even believe I typed that sentence, it’€™s so insane.

And that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

To explain what’€™s going on here, the Juneau County District Attorney, Scott Harold Southworth, sent a letter under his office letterhead to five school districts in the region, dated March 24, 2010, regarding a recently passed law that requires comprehensive sexual education in schools (rather than abstinence only, which had been law here).

See his batshit crazy letter here.

In this letter, Southworth makes the following (not based on any normal legal interpretation of the law) claims:

Teaching a child how to utilize contraception is to engage in sexual assault with a child.

Teachers of sex ed are possibly criminally liable in that they are ‘€œContributing to the Delinquency of a Child’€ if his or her instruction is ‘€œpractically certain’€ to cause the child to engage in underage sex.

Undermines parental authority because ‘€œthe child must be instructed that it’€™s ok to seek advice on sexuality from another family member (including another child!). This can lead children to ‘€œshop around’€ for any family member who will provide the approval they want in order to justify illegal and dangerous sexual behavior.’€ A direct quote from his letter.

‘€œRequires school districts to condone controversial sexual behavior’€ — in other words it’€™s problematic to teach kids not to discriminate against gay classmates because they will be introduced to ‘€œhomosexuality’€, ‘€œtransgender’€, and ‘€œtranssexual individuals.’€

Gives the ‘€œcontraceptive industry’€ access to our kids. Apparently schools can bring in ‘€œvolunteer health care providers’€ to teach sexual education, you know, nurses and such. But, whoa, Southworth threatens that these ‘€œ’€health care providers’€ might come in the form of contraceptive industry representatives (e.g. employees of Planned Parenthood, the nation’€™s largest abortion and contraceptive provider) and who can effectively market sexually-oriented products to our children.’€

And lastly, exposes school districts to civil litigation if instruction about how to use contraceptives ‘€œlead[s] to sexual assault, unplanned pregnancies, sexually transmitted diseases, emotional trauma, etc.’€

Southworth also says at the end of his letter, in a threat to teachers of those five school districts:

‘€œI am forced to deal with the numerous sexual assaults that occur in Juneau County each year. I witness first-hand the pain and suffering child victims must endure. As you well know, I am doing everything I can to put offenders behind bars and protect our children. However, these new mandates will make my job much more difficult by converting objective human growth and development programming into a radical program that sexualizes our children as early as kindergarten. This, in turn, will lead to more child sexual assaults.’€
