Should Comprehensive Sex Education be Mandatory?
Comprehensive sexual education can bring several social and cultural advantages.
Gender and sexuality based bullying is
within schools. It is therefore necessary that they tackle this issue directly via comprehensive sex education.
CSE leads to a decrease in early pregnancy and childbearing, both of which can force girls to drop out of education or make them unable to pursue their preferred careers.
CSE can help combat sexism and better women's lives.
Comprehensive sexual education can make societies more accepting of different sexualities and gender identities.
Differing beliefs about sexuality exist. To force a narrative, regardless of its factual reality, would be unethical.
Gender equality can be included in the curriculum across different subjects, there is no need to have mandatory CSE to achieve that goal.
