Save us from sex-perts

First published in Letters by

HEAVEN preserve us from interfering sex-perts wading in with their ridiculous advice.

The latest nonsense from Lucy Emmerson, co-ordinator of the Sex Education Forum, about children not giving granny and other relatives a kiss on the cheek is another a symbol of so much of that is wrong with this country.

Generations of children have been told by their parents to give a relative a peck on the cheek and yes, some are reluctant, but it does no harm – and more importantly has nothing to do with sex.

There is a heck of a difference between appropriate affection and a sex pest. We should leave parents to bring up their children as they think best.

What a surprise, a UKIP member who hasn't read the article and is jumping on the bandwagon ranting about political correctness gone mad.

Lucy Emmerson is not likening kissing grandparents to any kind of sexual perversion. What she is saying, which makes sense, is that children should not be forced into physical and intimate interaction with another person against their will. At the extreme end, this will make it harder for them to understand what is unacceptable behaviour from another adult and to feel that they can refuse to participate. But at the everyday end, why should children be forced to kiss their grandparents if they really really don't want to? Kids are people to, they have feelings and the right to make certain decisions for themselves, and if they absolutely refuse to do something and there's no good reason why they should have to, how is it a good thing to force them into it? Just to show the kid who's boss?

I've seen some UKIP websites using a filleted Kipper as their logo, its quite apt: Two faced and gutless.
