On a radio show yesterday, Texas congressman Louie Gohmert said, "Let the kids be innocent ... You don't have to force this sexuality stuff into their life at such a point. It was never intended to be that way. They'll find out soon enough.  And, in fact ... mankind has existed for a pretty long time without anyone ever having to give a sex-ed lesson to anybody." Here are some other things that mankind existed without for a pretty long time and which Gohmert presumably also finds unnecessary.

Antibiotics

Racial equality

Cars

The Internet

Airplanes

Democracy

Phones

Gender equality
