On 29 March 2018 Paul Murphy TD, Solidarity, moved the first stage of the Provision of Objective Sex Education Bill 2018 in the Dail. The Bill will be debated in the Dail tomorrow, Wednesday, from 4pm-6pm.

https://www.oireachtas.ie/documents/bills28/bills/2018/3418/b3418d.pdf

Among those supporting the Bill are -

National Women's Council of Ireland
Shout Out
Daltaí 4 Choice
Rape Crisis Network
UCD Students Union
Irish Family Planning Association
BeLongTo
YouAct Europe
Irish Second Level Students Union
Atheist Ireland

Not surprisingly the Catholic Primary School Management Association is opposing the Bill - claiming it could be unconstitutional (its not).

Video from Solidarity TD's Ruth Coppinger, Paul Murphy and Mick Barry outlining the reasons why Solidarity is proposing this Private Members Bill

In light of the recent rape trial in Belfast and the protests around the country in reaction to the trial, this Bill comes at an opportune time. I urge everyone to lobby their TDs to support this much needed initiative.

Good stuff. Still some way to go to demystify the old in and out even after Ireland turned its back on the Catholic codology.

Unless we have a humane, practical and sensitive attitude towards human sexuality, we only replace Catholic rubbish with internet rubbish.

It should have something on giving and receiving pleasure. That's what sex is all about.

Location of the clitoris and g-spot, and a man's most sensitive areas. These are skills that are hard won.

What to do if your mot has a clit the size of a finger joint. Is it a sign that she's all excirra, or have we more to do.

Then conception, leading to the finished product: a PhD student that can pay its way for at least the next 20 years.

Will it be teachers, or professional porno actors having sex with each other ? Or will they cut costs by using a DVD...

Fair enuff that students are under 18, but will there at least be oral exams ?

Thee's something deeply uncomfortable about watching those three in the video speaking about sex. It's like watching bishops or nuns talking about sex. Very creepy.

Talking about sex is all most people do, what do you expect...

Have the Holy Trinity* spoken yet?

They're waiting to hear back from God and Jesus (Ronan and Mattie) before they, (snigger), adopt a position.

What has the issue of consent got to do with the Belfast trial? We know the verdict in that trial.
We also know that much of the online discussion surrounding it revealed that a lot of people are deeply confused about what consent means and how important it is.
