The Myth of the Sexual Revolution: “The Kids Will Be OK”

An Interview with Helen Alvare


John Stonestreet

The controversy over the sexualization of young girls in the Netflix-aired film “Cuties,” is the latest incarnation of the pervasive myth of the sexual revolution: “The kids will be ok.”

No-fault divorce? The kids will be ok. Graphic sex education at a young age? The kids will be ok. Letting kids determine their own gender identity, same thing.

Well, the kids are not ok. Today on the BreakPoint Podcast, we re-air an interview John Stonestreet conducted with Helen Alvare of the George Mason University Antonin Scalia Law School. She is the author of Putting Children’s Interests First in US Family Law and Policy, and discusses the catastrophic consequences of the law shifting from protecting children and families to catering to adult sexual preferences. 

This interview first aired May 9, 2018.
