I completely agree with Bru and Ankit.
Anybody who is opposing sex education doesn't probably understand that sex education deals with adolescent growth issues, human reproductive anatomy, and spreading awareness about the STDs (sexually transmitted diseases).
The respected senior members here are probably assuming that today's children have the same psychological state as in their times. Thanks to the internet and television, today's children have gone ahead of the level of innocence. They know all about the things society forbids them to know about. Sex education is only there to provide them direction and help them to differentiate between right and wrong. It is said that 'a little knowledge is a dangerous thing'. With all the things they pick up from Internet and other media, children are ignorant enough and try to emulate those things under partial knowledge. The current media is all to blame for glamorizing sex. Sex education will only remove that ignorance from their minds and instruct them to respect the biological laws and be wise enough for their own good.
I would only request people to stop being narrow-minded and typecasting things. If the same course called 'sex education' was to be taught under the name 'Human reproductive anatomical studies', there would have been no fuss around it. Its just that Indian society is hypocrite enough to stereotype anything that has the word 'sex' before or after it.
My words may seem harsh, but being a young adult, out of my teenage just an year ago, I am in a much better position to comment on this topic. We have to attack ignorance, its only because of this ignorance and lack of appropriate sex education that sexual crimes are increasing day by day.
