New commercial tells parents how to raise their children  

4 comments


HOLY CRAP, TRYING TO TALK ABOUT SEX WILL TURN YOUR DAD INTO A MIME!

Thank goodness we don't have to talk about "the parts." I was worried for a minute that I might have to explain to my children what's going on with their bodies, or explain how sex works before I tell them to "wait."

4parents.gov is an appalling website that can basically be summed up in five words: "GET MARRIED OR NO SEX." They have an entire section about loving and accepting your child should s/he turn out to be gay, and then they blatantly exclude same-sex couples by preaching marriage as the best thing since sliced bread. Look at this:

What do you want your son or daughter to know about the benefits of marriage? Talking about the value of marriage now can help your son or daughter make good choices that will impact their future. Make sure you let them know what you want for their future. Marriage can be a positive part of your child's life. Research supports this!

Talk about some of the benefits listed below. Through discussion, you can help them think about their own future.
What are the benefits married people enjoy?

* Live longer.

* Have better physical and emotional health.

* Are happier.

* Earn more.

* Enjoy better sex lives.

* Save more so they have fewer money worries.

Uh. What about the people who are pushed into marriage by their parents, society, and stupid websites like 4parents.gov, and end up unhappy because they simply married for the sake of marrying? Why does it have to be "wait until marriage" to have sex? It is so much more realistic and inclusive to simply promote waiting until someone is ready and has found the right partner.

Then again, I don't want to die young, poor, depressed, and sex-less. Hot damn! I'm gonna go get hitched right now.

What next?

    Marriage: "Enjoy better sex lives."

    ???

    Clearly there people have never heard the no-sex-after-marriage jokes.

    How's it going,

    I like your site. I found it through Blogcatalog. I have a debate site that encourages people to express their thoughts and opinions towards controversial topics. I feel as if this is a way where we can have our thoughts and opinions heard.

    I would be honored to hear some of your insight. Also, maybe we can do a link exchange. If you would like to do one, feel free to email me and let me know. If not, your insight on some issues would be appreciated.

    This goes for all visitors to this site as well, everyone's opinion counts!

    Sincerely,
    Jason

    I don't understand how a parent can talk about sex with their child without talking about the "parts". Thank goodness my mother was not into this sort of thinking while I was growing up!

    Live longer? That's the one I don't get. Is marriage before sex the secret to a better lifestyle, and not exercise and a good diet?
