The "stirrings" are the feelings of sexual attractions kids get when they move into adolescence. Children are required to take pills to limit any attractions they have. If a baby is not "normal" they are released or even killed within the community. Everything must conform to the narrow ideas that the Elder's impose and control the community with.
