You see no value in "in teaching such poems to students at a high school". Girls in Aussie High Schools are just going to have to get their intro to thoughts and ideas about sex outside of the classroom then? As they mostly do anyhow. Isn't it a bit of a cop out to simply brush such things under the carpet and tell them that your religion says you have to get married first, and whatever you do don't read about Jacob's shenanigans or Dinah's little foibles. Doesn't education this day and age have to include full and varied discussions on issues like sex-as long as they are under the supervision of a teacher in a proper context. eg. in a literature class? Or should they continue to rely exclusively on peer pressure, film media and the web?
