Top 5: Sex Ed in Schools
In 2015, the province of Ontario modernized its sexual education curriculum, which had been designed in 2009. Kathleen Wynne´s government aimed to adapt the new curriculum to reflect the reality of today´s youth, especially with the advent of the Internet and the social media boom that followed, with sites such as Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. The decision caused much uproar and heated debate between those who believe sexual education has its place in schools and those who think it is the parents´ responsibility. Christabelle Sethna, professor at the Institute of Feminist and Gender Studies, gives us five reasons why sex ed classes should be part of the school curriculum.

CHRISTABELLE SETHNA, professeure à l'Institut d'études féministes et de genre, présente «5 raisons d'avoir des cours d'éducation sexuelle dans les écoles».
5. Une matière fondamentale du curriculum
Ma recherche a montré que nous
utilisons l'éducation sexuelle
comme un cas d'urgence.
Par exemple, on a besoin de
l'éducation sexuelle pour les
maladies vénériennes ou pour les
grossesses non prévues. Et donc,
je pense que l'éducation
sexuelle doit être une partie
fondamentale du curriculum.
Une partie fondamentale,
comme les autres sujets,
l'histoire, la géographie.
4. Avoir des discussions sur les défis sexuels
Il y a les problèmes de la
pornographie, le problème du
sexting, il y a le problème
de l'intimité et l'Internet, la
violence faite aux femmes dans
les relations, le viol. Je pense
qu'on peut commencer avec nous
même. Quels types d'expériences
est-ce que nous avons vécues
vis-à-vis de la sexualité. Mais
sans crainte de les partager,
sans jugement, dans des classes.
3. Avoir une éducation sexuelle respectueuse
Les enfants ont besoin
de l'éducation sexuelle à
l'école, parce que de temps en
temps, leurs parents ne sont pas
capables, ou les parents sont
embarrassés ou gênés. Je pense
que pour les jeunes gens, de
temps en temps, c'est difficile
pour eux de parler franchement
avec les parents. Donc, l'école
peut être un endroit pour les
enfants d'avoir des discussions
avec des enseignants et des
enseignantes sans crainte,
sans être embarrassés.
2. Avoir une éducation sexuelle positive
Les humains sont
des êtres sexuels.
Donc, dire "non" ou "ne pas" aux
jeunes gens, ça ne veut pas dire
l'éducation sexuelle. Je pense
aussi que les jeunes gens sont
très, très curieux au niveau
sexuel. Ils ont des sentiments
sexuels, les désirs et les
besoins. Pourquoi pas leur
donner l'information saine
et claire vis-à-vis du sexe?
Parce qu'ils vont
expérimenter un jour.
1. Connaître la diversité sexuelle
Quand je parle de la diversité,
je vais parler de la diversité
des familles. Parce qu'on peut
avoir des familles gaies ou des
familles hétéros. La diversité
religieuse ou culturelle. La
diversité vis-à-vis du genre. Et
quand je parle du genre, je veux
dire: qu'est-ce que ça veut
dire, la masculinité? Qu'est-ce
que ça veut dire, la féminité?
Qu'est-ce que ça veut
dire, le transgenre?
Et c'est une façon d'apprendre
que la vie sexuelle peut être
ou peut porter aux jeunes gens
la beauté, l'amour et l'égalité.
