    Default SCHOOLS QUIZ TWELVE-YEAR-OLDS ABOUT GAY, ORAL, AND ANAL SEX

    A public hearing is taking place Wednesday morning in the Massachusetts State House to look into a controversialsex survey given to middle school and high school students.

    Developed by the Centers for Disease Control and called the “Youth Risk Behavior Survey,” the survey asks students as young as 12 a series of very personal and highly ideological questions.

    The survey asks students if they are homosexual and if they are transgender. It also asks if they have had oral or anal sex and if they have performed such acts with up to six people.

    Whether or not they have carried a gun, smoked cigarettes, consumed alcohol and how much also appear on the questionnaire, as well as whether they have taken drugs, such as OxyContin, Percocet, and Vicodin. It asks how often their guardian uses a seat belt, if the youngster has a sexually transmitted disease, and where they sleep.

    The group MassResistance says the survey is “psychologically distorting” and will lead the child to think he is “abnormal if he is not doing it all.” The groupstated that “having children reveal personal issues about themselves and their family can have emotional consequences.” They also complain that “the survey results are used by radical groups from Planned Parenthood to LGBT groups to persuade politicians to give more taxpayer money [to] these groups.”

    Though students fill out the survey anonymously, MassResistance warns that “they are administered by the teacher in the classroom and there is often pressure for all kids to participate.”

    The test is given nationally and not without controversy. The Chicago Tribune reported two years ago that a Chicago teacher was reprimanded for telling students they had a “constitutional right” not to fill out the survey.

    the way the article is written makes me really wonder about the motivation of the writer. Do all students get the same quesions? Or are the questions age specific? The write said as young as 12 and then lists all of the most mature topics i imagine but doesn't say when those topics are asked about. I don't mind a 12 year being asked about some of those topics, others I think are too much for that age.

    this part of the article made me laugh.

    Didn't take much digging to find out that the questions are age specific.

    Here is the middle school version: http://www.cdc.gov/healthyyouth/yrbs...stionnaire.pdf

    • Have you ever had sexual intercourse?

    • How old were you when you had sexual intercourse for the first time?

    • With how many people have you ever had sexual intercourse?

    • The last time you had sexual intercourse, did you or your partner use a condom?


    It asks whether they wear a seatbelt and if they have ever gotten into a car with someone drinking.

    The high school survey is here: http://www.cdc.gov/healthyyouth/yrbs...stionnaire.pdf

    There is also a state and local one that I did not study too hard, but I am not sure the difference unless this is the one they can add to or amend: http://www.cdc.gov/healthyyouth/yrbs...stionnaire.pdf

    I didn't find any of the homosexual questions or anal sex questions. Maybe Massachusetts added them?

    If the source is breitbart, then it's a safe bet that a highly conservative agenda will take precedence over the facts.

    I don't think Andrew Breitbart would like his site today, but it's not all bad. Just like anywhere you've got to check sources. That's the way all journalism is now, it seems.

    I have to be honest, LM, I don't make a habit of reading the site - I'm just going by the instances when I've had the misfortune to have something from there shared to my Facebook timeline...Always guaranteed to make me want to tear my hair out!

    Def have a point of view, but I'm fine with that if you're up front about it and write honestly. Doesn't always happen at Breitbart, but it doesn't ways happen at a lot of places.

    I may hardly ever agree with Lawrence O'Donnell, but at least he's up front about bias (he's a socialist) and while I don't make a habit of watching his show, I've never found obvious dishonesty when I have. So I'm okay with that.

    Yeah, I feel you. If you ask parent permission you get a skewed number, but then again you get a skewed number if some kids decline to participate.

    Ultimately if there is a sex problem in that age group it's a parent problem.

    Typically anywhere from 11/12 to as old as 14/15.

    I don't have a problem with 11 - 15 year olds being asked such questions, providing the survey is being done anonymously and under the right circumstances.

    I think 11 is quite young for that sort of survey. at 15 i don't have an issue with it. But the outrage is a bit much for me. The survey isn't gonna mess up the kids. Shitty parenting will.

    We had sex ed. lessons in school at age 8, so, personally, I don't really consider it that much of an outrage. Also, bear in mind that a lot of girls have started their periods at age 11, so (certainly over here) the majority of them will have already have been supplied with various biological facts (including the mention of sexual intercourse).
