Why are people against sex education?
because it's disgusting and their are more teenagers now that are getting pregnant then when there wasn't any sex education
The above statement is false and sounds like it comes from a very young teen. I would say getting a unwanted pregnancy or get a STI because I'm not educated would be much more disgusting.
The US government spent a lot of the money that was supposed to be for sex ed on teaching abstinence and the number in teen pregnancies has stayed the same. The US is not different from any other country in this world when it comes to sex ed. When taught properly to ALL students it will bring down teen pregnancies. The knowledge you get there you will bring with you into married life and for the rest of your life.
The reason many are against it is because they have fallen for the myth that if you teach it more kids will want to have it when in fact it's the opposite. Wanting sex is due to hormones and falling in love, not something you teach in a classroom. Many also think it should be up to the parents but many parents don't know how and many kids are not comfortable listening to their parents about it. Those who believe in abstinence teach their kids nothing. It's a human right to know how your body works and how to be in control of when to procreate and how to protect yourself from diseases.

You will have to decide this for yourself. Here are some questions you might ask yourself: Do you think this is appropriate? Some people - including me - would consider it against their moral education. If (for example) you are a member of a religion that considers this inappropriate, better avoid it. Do you really want to do it? Are you aware of the risks, of changing sex partners? Or of having sex with people…

Many people would be of the opinion that the main responsibility as regards sex education lies with the parent(s) or guardians. However, due to the fact that some parents/guardians overlook this responsibility, it could be argued that it is necessary to teach human sex education in school or college; preferably the former.
Educated people can think of more things to do for pleasure or recreation than have sex, and are more likely to be aware of (and successfully use) contraception. By teaching them some education, help them to be more educated student. If we teach them some education, they will not have free sex, smoking and others.

Some adults fear that with sex education, young people will be more likely to have intercourse because they know it exists. This might be true in some cases. Any academic program should be well planned and taught competently; if this does not happen it could be a waste of time or even misleading. On the other hand, there have always been some young people who did it, and with sex education, at least they know…

The straight forward answer to this is that discriminating against a person because of their sex fits the question. In some circles the question relates to simple "What is sex discrimination?" Now in the past few years society is faced with people who openly say they are not sure of their "gender" or their "sex". They do not consider themselves necessarily as "Gay", they simply aren't sure. If these people are discriminated against, it is…
Yes it do help. Today's young generation might have skewed picture about sex owing to the profileration of pornography. Appropriate education will help them in having correct pespective of sex. In any sexual education, sex should be given right place and value and not overrated. This helps in maintaining balance.
Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 protects people from discrimination based on sex in education programs or activities which receive Federal financial assistance. The United States Department of Education maintains an Office for Civil Rights, with 12 enforcement offices to enforce Title IX.
