My Lesson About Reproductive Systems

Biology was certainly interesting today. Right now we’re in a chapter about the endocrine system, basically the system that releases hormones to trigger certain responses in the body. Today was the day we learned about the reproductive systems, both male and female. Fun.

To start off the class, Mrs. Houtman spent about ten minutes talking about the male reproductive system. She briefly explained the different parts, talked about testosterone and sperm production, and that was it. Then she proceeded to take the rest of the class to explain the female reproductive system. Apparently it took longer to explain because it was more complicated – I had to admit that, since everything to do with females is always more complicated, that she was right, but still, it shouldn’t take five times longer to explain their reproductive system than it took to explain the male reproductive system. It was stupid.

For most of the class, she went into graphic detail about ovulation, the growth of the egg, something about follicles, and then into the menstrual cycle. Then, she talked about the hormones estrogen and progesterone for about five minutes. Now I have a question: why did we go into so much detail about the system when we’re not even talking about the actual reproductive system, but rather the hormones? Answer: feminism, plain and simple.

Now, I’m not faulting Mrs. Houtman, but she is the product of feminism. Almost all females today are. They’ve been brought up in a day and age when,…Continue Reading

Parenting Class

I have to make this fairly short since I’m on a restricted time limit (I have to leave for work in about 10 minutes), but I also just need this daily writing time to reflect on the day and sometimes get some stuff off my mind.

In Parenting class today, we talked about sex education and whether it should include more than abstinence, teaching stuff like contraceptives and everything – which it does currently in our public school systems. We were reading about a couple differing opinions, one which believed that only abstinence should be taught, and another opinion which said that education should include topics like contraceptives. While everyone was sort of offering their own opinions, though, the topic of parental involvement came up. It sort of hit me. In today’s culture, kids learn about sex long before they even hit puberty – especially for the guys since they hit that point later than girls do. But parents, I’ve noticed, tend to shy away from discussing it with their children. So I got to thinking: why are parents letting their kid’s peers and teachers tell them about sex? And then why are they blaming the sex education programs for corrupting their kids? Shouldn’t they be the ones to teach their kids the values they want to instill within them about sexual activity? If parents, especially Christian parents, want their kids to have the same values as they do about sex, then they need to teach them about it –…Continue Reading
