CBS’s “The Talk” doesn’t say exactly where these compulsory lessons are going to be taking place (if they’re not canceled first once word gets out), but The Daily Mail covered compulsory self-touching lessons in a piece Saturday, and it seems to be limited so far to the U.K.
The program is called “All About Me” and is set to be rolled out to 241 primary schools by Warwickshire County Council.
“The Talk,” which airs on CBS in the afternoons, wants to know how people feel about children as young a 6 being given “compulsory self-touching lessons.”
Children as young as six are to be given compulsory self-touching lessons that will teach them about touching or ‘stimulating’ their own genitals.
🗣What do you think?

We did check “The Talk’s” Twitter feed to see if they’d uploaded video of the segment so we could learn more, but no luck. So, people will just have to go on what they know from the tweet … and they’re weighing in in droves.
Nope. Nope nope nope.
No stranger is going to teach my kid how to masturbate then sit back and watch them do it. https://t.co/luDzym6LlE

They might use puppets. Yeah, they’ll probably use puppets.
This is just straight up pedophilia and any teacher or administrator involved should be arrested as sex predators https://t.co/xrpQ9M11XZ

No way on earth that I would send my 6 yr old baby girl to a place where anybody is talking to her or teaching her how to do this. We have laws against this behavior. We use to educate our babies on recognizing such actions against them as abusive and to tell a trusted adult.

This is sick. Leave kids alone. They can figure out things for themselves. Sounds very inappropriate in every way
— Anthony (@AnthonySpradl12) November 22, 2019
This sounds predatory. I refuse to believe the people who come up with this sort of idea are anything but pedophiles. There's no other possible motivation for wanting to engage with children in this manner.

The more important question to ask:
How did we get to a point where this needs to asked and we don't just collectively know what each other think about this?

Anyone willing to teach that to little kids should be put on a predator list and kept away from children.

I think the inmates are running the asylum. The sexualization of children needs to stop. Now. What is wrong with people?
— BombshellSquad (@RedStateBlonde) November 23, 2019
This is disgusting and criminal. Everyone of these children’s parents needs to remove their child from the school.

And people wonder why homeschooling is getting more and more popular…
— Santa Cl-Austin 'Badg3rman' Smith (@TheBadg3rman) November 23, 2019
That's what I think.
And I'd punch the teeth of anyone who dared to do that to my child.

This behavior is taking steps toward grooming and normalizing pedophilia – society will never accept this.
— IrritatedWoman (@irritatedwoman) November 23, 2019
The term for this is grooming.
Get your kids out of the public school system immediately.
Homeschooling is actually great. I was terrified at first, but it was awesome. My kids are in school now for high school and doing great!
— Lorelee Siemens (@LoreleeSiemens) November 23, 2019
Sexual Child Abuse!
This is beyond something we should be “talking” about.
We should be putting a STOP to this. We should be protecting our our children. This is disgusting!
Trying to normalize this kind of behavior is EVIL.
Lord help us.

This is the single most messed up piece I've read today. If this is remotely true and not a prank, I can only imagine there will be serious trouble if they try to approve this. This is insane!
— Ramón Velásquez✝️ (@RamnVelsquez7) November 23, 2019
Kids should be kids and allowed to mature naturally.
What we should be teaching them are reading, writing, history, civics, and math which based upon my latest interviewees they are failing abysmally.

Arrest everyone who was involved in setting this program up and interview any minors who they have come in contact with.
— Paul “TᕼE ᗷOOK GᑌY” (@PaulTheBookGuy) November 23, 2019
I reported this tweet for threatening harm. This isn’t a question, this is a powerful news outlet trying to normalize pedophilia & threatening the safety of our children & our rights as parents to protect them. I suggest everyone do the same. We can’t tolerate this. We won’t.

This world makes me sick. My sweet innocent 3 year granddaughter will be corrupt if she goes to public school. What will they be teaching her when she attends???
— Rebecca Reece (@BeckyKwake) November 22, 2019
Whoever implements this practice will have to answer for why they are sexualizing children. There is not medical reason for this. This is not a crippling social issue where children are unifying, demanding to be taught this. Whoever does this is sick, truly
— Jody Nilsen (@JodyDraws) November 23, 2019
Children should be taught how to listen to to their instincts and protect themselves from pedophiles instead #TheTalk
— Quirky&Smart💙🇺🇸🙏 (@SmartpplMatter2) November 23, 2019
Outside of school it would be sexual abuse and molestation. Inside should be the same. Stop. It. Now!
— Laura Rambeau Lee (@_RightReason) November 23, 2019
What do I think? I think we should burn the building this occurred in to the ground, and hang every adult involved in designing and implementing this program in public square.
Gosh it's a good thing I'm not in charge.
— James Fox Higgins (@jamesfoxhiggins) November 23, 2019
No way. It's a private activity that kids figure out all on their own. I can't imagine a reason to do this, or a way to do it that wouldn't be super inappropriate, and awkward for the kids. Who thought of this and why?
— Cathy Jeanne McGuinness (@JoyFelize) November 21, 2019
First, anyone tries to teach my child about this, and it will be the last thing they ever teach.
Secondly, anyone sexualizing children is evil.
Lastly, fire your social media director.
