INDEX OF AUTHORS

infection persist for many years, and even when the syphilitic 

husband is no longer capable of infecting his wife he may still 

perhaps be in a condition to effect a disastrous influence on the 

offspring. 

 

In nearly all these cases there was more or less ignorance--which is but 

another word for innocence as we commonly understand innocence--and when 

at last, after the event, the facts are more or less bluntly explained to 

the victim he frequently exclaims: "Nobody told me!" It is this fact which 

condemns the pseudo-moralist. If he had seen to it that mothers began to 

explain the facts of sex to their little boys and girls from childhood, if 

he had (as Dr. Joseph Price urges) taught the risks of venereal disease in 

the Sunday-school, if he had plainly preached on the relations of the 

sexes from the pulpit, if he had seen to it that every youth at the 

beginning of adolescence received some simple technical instruction from 

his family doctor concerning sexual health and sexual disease--then, 

though there would still remain the need of pity for those who strayed 

from a path that must always be difficult to walk in, the would-be 

moralist at all events would in some measure be exculpated. But he has 

seldom indeed lifted a finger to do any of these things.
