Oakland Child Sex

Second graders in an Oakland public school have been caught naked and having oral sex in the classroom. The teacher has been suspended and an investigation is underway. Why would children this young be left alone in a classroom long enough for this to happen? Certainly the classroom can’t be so large that the teacher can’t see the entire room from the front.

How did the children learn how to do this? Is the teacher, their parents, their mother’s boyfriend or older siblings or babysitters molesting the children or performing inappropriate acts in front of the children? Certainly the police and child services should be investigating these events.

Our society has been sexualizing children for too long. Shows like “Skins” and others show children as sex objects. Even the Jon Ramsey case showed a little girl who was dressed up and made up as a tiny adult, rather than as a cute little girl. Children are not sexy and should not be exposed to sex acts; that’s the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
