Madness in early childhood education?

Carolyn Moynihan reports about alarming studies in childhood innocence concerning sexuality. Apparently, from seeking to right the injustice of "heteronormativity" that children seem to born with, to the premise that childhood innocence is an "erotic fantasy".

Carlyn points to this inconsistency in society:

 So here we have a really absurd situation. On the one hand, clerics and others being jailed for treating children as sexual agents and destroying their innocence. On the other, academics training childcare teachers to believe that childhood innocence is a myth and that they must actively shape the sexual awareness of their little charges.
