“Why not teach them how to analyse it?”

By Amy Packham

Dame Jenni Murray has called for changes to the education system, including “abolishing” sex education and introducing “gender lessons”.

The Radio 4 presenter, 66, said school children should watch pornography and “analyse it” – just like they would do with a book in an English lesson. 

“I would abolish sex education,” she said during the Cheltenham Literature Festival, according to the Daily Mail. “I would put the ‘what goes where and how and how things are made’ and all of that into biology because that is science and no parent is going to say: ‘Oh, I don’t want my child getting involved in biology or science.’

“What we would then have is a compulsory subject called gender education, so it doesn’t have the word sex in it so nobody can complain or be upset.”
