California’s LGBT-Laced Sex Education Curriculum Sparks Debate

The California Department of Education approved a sex education curriculum for K-12 that further supports the LGBT sexual agenda.

In an official statement, California’s DOE tried to justify the program on moral grounds by suggesting that it is about “dispelling myths, breaking down stereotypes, and linking students to resources [that] can help prevent bullying, self-harm, feelings of hopelessness, and serious considerations of suicide.”

In reality, however, the curriculum teaches that even kindergarten-age children can identify as transgender, that masturbation is normal for middle-schoolers, and that the biological male-female sex binary should be challenged. Plus, students are not allowed to opt-out of any lessons that explain “gender identity” or cover discrimination against LGBT people.

Fortunately, there has been pushback. In Sacramento, during a public hearing on the curriculum, 200 protesters rallied outside. Patricia Reyes, mother of six, said, “It’s just scary what they are going to be teaching. It’s pornography. If this continues, I’m not sending them to school.” Opposition from parents and several organizations led to the removal of five books, one of which was recommended for transitional kindergarten through third-grade students that showed cartoon illustrations of male and female body parts and described the sex act. Another book for high schoolers on the original list described anal sex and bondage.

In the 12,000-student Rocklin School District, parents protested the sex education component that would incorporate the achievements of LGBT-identifying individuals by keeping some 700 students home from school.

“Not everything under the sun needs to be taught to our kids, with no moral judgment,” said Greg Burt, director of the California Family Council.

The final decision on curriculum choices lies with local school districts.

California Parents Participate in Sex Ed Sit Out

Informed Parents of California recently mobilized a “Sexxx Ed Sit Out” for parents and students to protest the state’s explicit sexual education program.

An open letter to school principals, lawmakers, and state Department of Education officials written earlier this month by Informed Parents of California reads, “[Children] are instructed in their rights to confidential reproductive health services and directed to local Planned Parenthood clinics for abortion, birth control and STI [sexually transmitted infections] testing without parental notice. Some children have even been prescribed puberty blockers for gender transition, and sadly, parents have been so bullied by social workers they are afraid to speak publicly about it.”

The new curriculum covers topics such as gender identity, contraception, bullying, as well as oral and anal sex techniques.

Radical Colorado Sex Education Bill Advances

A bill filed in the Colorado House known as the Youth Wellness Act wants to teach children in Colorado public schools about the different relationship models they and their peers may engage in.

The bill would allow explicit descriptions of sexual techniques used by the LGBT peers but prohibit teaching that there are two sexes, male and female, which is considered the promotion of “gender norms or gender stereotypes.” Sex education instructors would also be prohibited from “explicitly or implicitly teaching or endorsing religious ideology or sectarian tenets or doctrines” and that would include abstinence-only curriculum.

Fortunately, the state allows parents to opt their children out of sex education and, thankfully, parents have not been silent. Though the measure is backed by Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains, ACLU Colorado, and LGBT activist groups, opposition to it has been strong. Nearly 95,000 email messages opposing the bill were sent to legislators and of the 300 people who signed up to testify in last Wednesday night’s hearing most opposed the bill.

Planned Parenthood Adds AI Chatbot as Part of Radical Sex Ed

Planned Parenthood has paired with technology company Work & Co. to help teens age 13-17 find the “right” answers to questions about sex through its artificial intelligence chatbot called Roo.

Information given to inquisitive teens is based on what information the young person types in or chooses from a list of FAQs as well as which of the five available genders the young person chooses.

Why, with Google answering so many of these questions already, did the abortion giant decide to come up with Roo? Simple. The AI chatbot is billed as nonjudgmental and personalized, and of course, the answers would come from Planned Parenthood’s perspective.

Parents might want to be careful about their child’s use of an app that answers questions like “What is the right age to have sex for the first time?” and “When are you no longer a virgin?” with mushy answers that basically say it’s up to the teen to decide these things.

Interestingly, Roo is unable to process questions about when life begins and the personhood of unborn babies.

MA Legislature Weighs Graphic Sex Education Program

The Massachusetts Legislature is considering a bill that would implement a statewide sex education program for those 12 years old and older that depicts graphic sex acts, encourages abortion, affirms the LGBT lifestyle, and talks about sexual orientation and gender identity.

Called “Get Real,” the sex education curriculum is designed by Planned Parenthood and backed by NARAL.

Our friends at Massachusetts Family Institute are fighting the sex ed mandate by encouraging conservatives in their state to contact their elected officials.
