Sex Education in New Zealand = Madness (Part 1)

I recently watched a very interesting presentation about sex education by Dr Miriam Grossman.

Grossman is a child, adolescent, and adult psychiatrist. She writes and speaks to parents, students, educators, and health professionals internationally on the dangers of political correctness in her profession.

Grossman recently gave a presentation to a group of school teachers and principals in Auckland, hosted by Family First and introduced by spokesman Bob McCoskrie. She raised some extremely interesting and alarming points which I want to share with you.

Firstly, Grossman makes known to us that Family Planning and Rainbow Youth (which are both endorsed by our government) are on one hand telling the parents of our children what is being taught in our sexual education classes in our schools, and on the other they are teaching  totally different ideologies. Basically saying one thing…and doing another! Grossman calls this a “hoax”.

Example number one

Grossman quotes Family Planning Chief Executive Jackie Edmond as she states “We support telling people to have loving, caring relationships and young people to delay having sexual onset“. Now this is a good thing but then in one of Family Planning’s pamphlets called Your Choice it says:

Only YOU should control your sex life. Make sure it’s your choice if, or when, you sleep with someone. Make sure you’re really ready. Only YOU know when it is right for YOU.

Contradictory? I’ll let you decide.

Example number two

In another Family Planning pamphlet for pubertal aged young people they state:

There is no ‘right’ age to have sex. The age someone chooses to have sex is different for everyone. It needs to be when it feels right for that individual person.

I hope that you can now see the hypocrisy.

On a website called The Word which is linked to Family Planning they state:

Remember, it’s best to use condoms AND lube AND contraception until you are in a long term committed relationship.

I have underlined a key part of this statement which implies that promiscuous behavior is assumed and acceptable, and furthermore does not encourage “young people to delay having sexual onset.”

Grossman doesn’t stop there…oh no.

She put’s herself in the shoes of the young person and asks “how do I know when I’m ready?” Well here’s what Family Planning have to say to that:

I think you’re ready to have sex if you feel it’s right. If you like hear little voices…you know, – don’t do it, don’t do it -… you should hold off. But you know, if it’s like ‘yeah I’m ready’, then OK.

Ummmmmmm? Are you thinking what I’m thinking?

Don’t worry…so is Dr Grossman. She responds to this information by saying:

According to this advice, you could have a thirteen year old girl who meets a sixteen year old boy and after a few days if she hears little voices saying ‘I’m ready, I’m ready, do it, do it’, so long as [she has] a condom it’s just fine. This is certainly not encouraging kids to delay sexual activity.

We live in a culture that is looking for love and freedom in all the wrong places. It has gotten to the point where this idea of sexual freedom is being promoted and encouraged to our young people through their curriculum. Love and freedom are found in one place…and that is in God.


45     Man is made to live in communion with God in whom he finds happiness: When I am completely united to you, there will be no more sorrow or trials; entirely full of you, my life will be complete (St. Augustine, Conf. 10, 28, 39: PL 32, 795).


I apologize for the lengthy post today but this is important to me and I hope it might strike a nerve in you too.

But please tune in this time next week when I will dive into the second part of Dr Miriam Grossman’s presentation which looks at the biological evidence which disproves Family Planning’s sexual education campaign.

The battle is not against disease, but against ideas

Dr Miriam Grossman

God Bless
