(NEW YORK – C-FAM) The World Association of Girl Scouts and Girl Guides hosted a no-adults-welcome panel at the United Nations this week where Planned Parenthood was allowed to distribute a brochure entitled “Healthy, Happy and Hot.” The event was part of the annual United Nations Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) which concludes this week.
The brochure, aimed at young people living with HIV, contains explicit and graphic details on sex, as well as the promotion of casual sex in many forms. The brochure claims, “Many people think sex is just about vaginal or anal intercourse… But, there are lots of different ways to have sex and lots of different types of sex. There is no right or wrong way to have sex. Just have fun, explore and be yourself!” The brochure goes on to encourage young people to “Improve your sex life by getting to know your own body. Play with yourself! Masturbation is a great way to find out more about your body and what you find sexually stimulating. Mix things up by using different kinds of touch from very soft to hard. Talk about or act out your fantasies. Talk dirty to them.”
Recall from an earlier post that PP uses the following definition of young people:
“IPPF uses the terms young people, youth and adolescents interchangeably to refer to people who are between 10 and 24 years.” – From the IPPF document Stand and Deliver.
So now it’s the Girl Scouts. The systematic corruption of youth. The Girl Scouts Betrayed by their own leadership.
Admittedly, there are serious problems in the Third World that need to be addressed. Children are fair game in many societies, and the UN feels compelled to act on these children’s behalf.
This isn’t the answer.
This document is vile. It goes so far as to suggest to young people that they do not have a moral obligation to disclose their HIV status to a potential partner, and calls for abolishing mandatory reporting laws extant in some countries.
Think about that for a moment.
The same organization that calls for safer sex, Planned Parenthood, is calling for teens to make a judgement call about who should be told their HIV status. Incredible. It does, however, have its own internal logic.
PP is all about divorcing sex from a loving commitment and from the possibility of procreation. In almost all of their publications aimed at young people they take great care to refer to sex as “sex play”. Well, if it’s only a game, if hedonism is the central organizing principle, then disclosure becomes a “choice”. Killing one’s partner with HIV and killing one’s baby are merely “choices” attached to “sex play”.
You play, you pay. Welcome to the new morality. Of course, PP takes great pains to bundle the new hedonism with legitimate concerns about social ostracization of those with HIV. A spoonful of sugar helps the hedonism go down.
But Planned Parenthood isn’t the sole demon here. This filth was welcomed by the Girl Scouts under the guise of ’empowerment’. “I’m in charge of my own orgasm,” isn’t empowering. It’s degrading. It’s great training for a failed marriage. Rather than exploring together in the early days of marriage, which teaches patience and respect, having a bride dictate the established protocol, or the husband doing the same, makes of the other more of a performer in a well-rehearsed play-rather than a cocreator of a mutual expression of love.
Not a few feel entirely degraded by being expected to replicate what their spouse has created through masturbation or sex with different partners. There’s nothing so degrading as being a stand-in for the last half-dozen guys or girls ahead of you in line.
Hiding HIV from sex partners that young girls shouldn’t have in the first place begs the question of how they got HIV. It’s also a despicable thing to do, the height of narcissism and hedonism.
We were all set to have our daughters join the Girl Scouts this coming September. Seeing the new-age campfire stories, Regina and I will pass. The corrupt leadership simply can’t be trusted.
