Everyone knows that China's sex education is poor, but when it is making progress, some people still only look at pornography and childishness


I am a student majoring in journalism, an informal journalist, a non education major, a non sex and gender expert, and a staff member of non-profit organizations. In order to complete the news assignment last year, I went to the school for children of migrant workers in the suburbs of Beijing twice to attend the sex education course, and had in-depth conversation with the public welfare organization promoting this textbook. I was lucky to know more about this sex education textbook than others. Since it is late to see the topic microblog today, there is no time to do new research. This article is mainly based on the data and experience obtained last April. If there is any discrepancy with the existing facts, please correct it.

Welcome to forward it. Please send a private message.

When this microblog turned to my home page today, I was undoubtedly angry.

Although some people have posted the full picture in the hot reviews, the impact of this microblog has been irretrievable. The yellow jokes and facial expression packs that can be seen everywhere in the comments and forwarding still become a testosterone carnival of Keyboard Man.

This book is called Cherish Life. It was compiled by the Children's Sex Education Research Group of Beijing Normal University. The students' books were listed from the first volume of the first grade to the second volume of the fifth grade.

In the textbook of the second volume of grade one, students can learn about the external and internal structure of male and female reproductive organs through cartoons; (This part does not only introduce the reproductive organs, but also the reproductive organs and other organs, such as limbs, brain, viscera and six viscera, in order to "normalize" the reproductive organs to the greatest extent.)

In the textbook of the second volume of grade two, the process of sexual intercourse between men and women is illustrated with pictures and illustrations;

 Second Year Volume II Second Year Volume II

The textbook of the second volume of the third grade explains that adolescent boys and girls will appear Spermatorrhea, menstruation Phenomenon;

By the second volume of Grade 5, the textbook will be introduced sexual orientation The concept of Homosexuality is also normal.

And every book will protect itself Prevention of sexual assault The accompanying pictures in the chapter of Adult men to boys, adult women to boys, girls, etc Multiple situations. (The picture of Li Tiegen's microblog is)

What makes me even more excited as a woman is the following:

Boys and girls are equally independent and express their own opinions. There are excellent female pilots, excellent male nurses, competent female police officers and dedicated male preschool teachers

"All men are equal, not different because of gender"

Both men and women are responsible, brave and proactive, and considerate

I was really tearful when I saw this, because this textbook was only promoted in 13 schools for children of migrant workers in the suburbs of Beijing (last April's data), and most of the parents of these children were not highly educated themselves, and were too busy working to teach children these ideas. Children take textbooks as their bible. The teacher told them that you can be a policewoman or a male nurse. How much encouragement is it for children to tell them that same-sex sexual orientation is normal, and appeal to them not to discriminate? Can it really help to improve discrimination?

My second class was in a third grade class of Lantian Fengyuan Primary School. Among more than 60 private schools for migrant workers' children in Beijing, it was a large primary school with good hardware. There were five or six bungalows in the school, and the playground was a simple cement brick floor. These children are far less well-dressed than those in the city center. But when I asked the third grade girls what they had learned, they could say generously that "breast will grow", "sanitary napkins should be used for menstruation", pointing to their bodies and saying "strangers should not touch here".

This textbook is not only sex education, but also responsibility education, gender education, and education to make children become independent individuals.

A teacher told me that in her experience, the younger children who are exposed to sex education, In the process of learning, he became more and more calm: "When we teach the children in grade one, we teach them to know the reproductive organs, and the children will treat the reproductive organs as they know other human organs. But when we teach the children in grade five, there will be girls who are embarrassed, and then boys will snicker."

When I was doing a special sex issue at the same time last year, I asked some students if they knew the difference between urethra and vagina. As a result, many of my high school students and college students (both men and women) thought that urethra and vagina were the same thing. I was really shocked. My high school was the ace high school in a second tier city, and my university was a 211 college in the capital known for its openness and diversity, All the people I asked about have grown up, and we usually open yellow tunes together.

This sex education project in Beijing has only just started for a few years. There are some problems, such as teachers can't keep up with it, funds are not available, and the education department has little support. Most of them are public welfare organizations. It is also difficult for children and parents to have positive interaction in this regard. It is difficult to promote sex education under the current system, but some people are making efforts. As a media student and a journalism student, I really appeal to the media we media. You can help us if you don't help us. You can also help us by taking out of context and stigmatizing the textbooks that people's education experts have worked hard to compile. Some critics accuse the textbook of being too "dirty", but some critics say that the "big chicken girl" is just a bunch of people praising the original picture,

I feel that there is still a lot left unsaid. I hope you can discuss it with me in the comments, and I will add what I think in the comments.
