Berlin axes plan to establish 'sex rooms' for toddlers in state-run day-care facilities

Leftists desperate to sexualize toddlers in Germany have gone after the country's day-care facilities.

Last year, two nurseries in the German state of North Rhine-Westphalia introduced masturbatoriums for toddlers so that they could experiment with "childish sexuality." When Die Welt asked about the initiative, the children's ministry for the state indicated that it could not and would not intervene to stop "sexual behavior by children."

Bild reported in June that a day-care center in Hanover announced plans to create a "body exploration room" where children could "caress and examine" themselves and other kids. After significant backlash, the Lower Saxony State Youth Welfare Office shut down the project.

A recommendation for similar toddler sex rooms recently appeared in an unpublished draft of Berlin's new day-care education program. According to the newspaper Junge Freiheit, this proposal — which was emblazoned with the Department of Edcuation's logo and made its way through various educational institutions — suggested that children ages 3-6 ought to be afforded spaces where they can live out "feelings of pleasure."

While Berlin has long been a city pulled toward social and political extremes, it appears this was a bridge too far.

Falko Liecke, the state secretary for youth and family in the Berlin Senate's Department of Education, recently made clear to Junge Freiheit that there will be no such rooms and that the proposal, advanced by supposed specialists, "has now been withdrawn."

An English translation indicated the Liecke told the paper, "In Berlin day-care centers, there will expressly be no separate rooms for educational sexual explorations for children among themselves, nor any guided or free other sexual-educational concepts."

Liecke did, however, acknowledge the recommendations, indicating that they were "given to us from the scientific field represent[ing] a different perspective."

"We expressly do not share these views and will not include these recommendations in the Berlin educational program for day-care centers and day care," said Liecke. "This does not correspond at all to our ideas about a child-friendly educational mandate."
