In the U.S., we have battles over proper sex education.
In Turkey, they’re having battles when it comes to teaching kids about their own body parts.
A psychology expert who once ran a local teachers’ union realized that a page in a sixth-grade biology textbook that used to show anatomy-book drawings of genitalia is no longer there:
In the new version of the book, genitalia have only been drawn on the cell level, while the reproduction chapter has been “evaded” with photos of a mother and a baby, as well as cute animals such as polar bears, he added.
Tunalı also claimed that the same section is now being taught “shortly, superficially and in a slapdash manner.”
