Curiosity NEVER KILLED THE CAT
So I went onto facebook (why I did it, I still don’t know, that place is a mess) and I happened upon my friend’s status. Well, it started off pretty bad just because it was ageist, in addition to talking about how wrong it is that kids are talking about sex and thinking they’re cool when they’re only 13 and stuff.
And so I keep reading. Turns out, once you hit high school age is when you should be allowed to explore sexuality, but you’re not ready until a certain age which is 17. No, really, that’s what they explained.
Oh hey guess who was 17. That person.
Now look, I’m only 19. I’m only two years older than this person. But she goes on about how 15 year olds are so immature and ridiculous and terrible. Not gonna lie here and say I don’t agree that at that age people tend to be immature and use their age as an excuse for why they can be terrible.
But sexual shaming and slut shaming if you’re not a certain age and you’re talking about sex? Yeah, no, you can fuck right the hell off. That’s not ok. It’s just not.
And then someone pulled the word “Fag” out in relation to “social justice losers” like me. Because I did reply. That thread was getting out of control.
The OP tried to justify their views with protecting innocence and purity.
Well excuse me, but protecting innocence is a reprehensible thing to do if you’re doing it by keeping children from knowledge about their bodies that they have every right to have. “Protecting innocence” didn’t happen for me because I was violated and my mother knew, but when I sought knowledge about myself, I was shunned by people like the OP.
I don’t want you impacting any children around me. It’s more like you’re the problem, causing kids to learn negative behaviors about their bodies that they wouldn’t naturally have. Shame on YOU, not shame on me.
So listen, the next time you want to protect innocent children by shunning them from learning about their bodies and having natural sexual curiosity, kindly go fuck off and jump off a bridge.
