Norwegians woke up Tuesday morning to news that a respected Oslo pre-school teacher, backed by child psychologists, thinks children should be allowed to openly express their own sexuality, not least through sex play and games in the local day care centers known as barnehager, or kindergartens.
It goes on to quote a "well-known pre-school educator" who says children should be able to:
look at each other and examine each other's bodies. They can play doctor, play mother and father, dance naked and masturbate.
But their sexuality must also be socialized, so they are not, for example, allowed to masturbate while sitting and eating. Nor can they be allowed to pressure other children into doing things they don't want to.
The cruel irony is that these same so-called children's advocates fail to grasp the painfully obvious reality that the non-establishment of boundaries will inevitably lead to children pressuring other children to do things they don't want to do.
