This is a question My sex misconceptions

Freddy Woo writes, "aged eight, a boy from my class told me everything these was to know about sex: male prostitutes are called destitutes and women use tampons to stop men sticking their willies up them. Also, women pee out their bums, something I didn't realise was wrong until I was about 18 and my first girlfriend looked at me aghast."

Children are self-righteous little bastards.
I must preface this by saying that as a child, I was convinced that I knew everything and that anything I didn't know I could find out myself.

So, I firmly believed that babies came from God watching a couple get married, seeing how much they loved each other, and then making the woman pregnant on their wedding day. I didn't really think about how multiple children would come about from this, but as I only had a half-sister (different mum), the whole thing still made sense from my point of view.

I didn't realize that I had anything between my legs that was used for more than peeing. I thought of my nether-regions basically how most people think of their elbows: they are there, they don't do a lot, so don't think about it. I knew that boys had things different between their legs, but I just put this as a diversity issue, much like if all boys just happened to have giant moles on their faces. I didn't think they actually did anything.

I knew the word sex was a bad word, and I thought it was a synonym for rape, but I didn't actually know what rape was, clearly. I seem to remember thinking it was something about a man sticking something up a woman's butt.

I believed this until I was twelve. My mum never corrected me because I was so utterly sure that my self-formulated ideas were the truth that I never asked where babies came from.

One day, I got bored and started reading my baby book. In it was a question and answer article from parents to this parenting expert person, and one of the questions was about what to do if your child asks where babies came from. It had different answers for different ages; I read all of them. The last was fairly graphic, and I thought it was a joke. I went to my mum, horrified.

"Mommy, is this really true?" I asked.

"Er...um.....um.....yes?" Was her response.

I felt completely disgusted and betrayed by both my mother and God. I still refused to believe it for a few days.

Also, when I first got my period I didn't really know what it was and the second month I had it, I was shocked again because I was convinced that I had dreamed the first time and women didn't really bleed out of their vaginas.

And this is why you do not homeschool anti-social children.

Oh dear
You have a bad mother, I take it she is religious?

She's not religious at all.

you don't home school anti-social children,
because if you do, they end up on b3ta.
