College activists in California are demanding that sexual consent be taught to students even at the kindergarten level in order to stop sexual assaults.
According to the "Take Back the Campus" campaign, young students need to be taught not to touch others.
But Brad Dacus of the Pacific Justice Institute says teaching children at the elementary level not to touch others is ludicrous. He points out that it's normal for children at that age to touch when playing, wrestling and playing sports.
"All this does is bring more confusion at an early age," he says, "when such confusion is not productive, it's also destructive."
CNS News learned about the controversy, reporting on its website that university students "posted a list of demands" on the group's Facebook page in December. Number three on the list is "consent education" beginning in kindergarten.
"College is too late for people to learn about bodily autonomy and respect," the statement explains.
Dacus says he fears such policies would give radical groups access to young students. He names Planned Parenthood in particular.
"Which most parents would be outraged if they did," he predicts.
Lastly, Dacus says such a policy could potentially open up a Pandora's box of litigation and lawsuits against innocent students who would have no understanding of what's going on.
