Sex ed, 1950s-style  

I stumbled across a Top 10 Most Bizarre Sex Ed Videos list at, and wow. Compared to some of these creepy and outdated videos from 50 or so years ago, even abstinence-only education doesn't seem that bad.

My favorite was the video that tried to educate children on "the homosexual," usually an older mentally disturbed man who picks up little boys in his car and drives them to motels to force sex on them. It warns the viewer: "One never knows when the homosexual is about. He may appear normal." Shudder.

What next?

    The sex advertisement is ridiculous. It is sad to think that this is how some people view “The Homosexual”. However, I do find comfort in that fact that this ad was aired over half a century ago and in a time where televisions were not as common as now. It shows how times have changed and how people’s opinions can change too. I could not imagine growing up in a time where this type of ad filled television screens. Now, anti-homophobic ads are featured on the television. I am glad that there was such a change-around between the times.
