Wisconsin schools introduce masturbation in fourth grade, everything else by sixth
Wisconsin Reporter ^ | August 24, 2013 | Ryan Exvall

Posted on 08/26/2013 11:50:39 AM PDT by NYer

MADISON – Parents, do you know your elementary school’s masturbation education policy?

OLD ENOUGH?: Some Wisconsin school districts have authorized sexual education, including topics such as masturbation, at elementary schools.

OLD ENOUGH?: Some Wisconsin school districts have authorized sexual education, including topics such as masturbation, at elementary schools.

The Oak Creek School District developed a booklet for parents of elementary students to help them “understand how staff and outside resource people will handle these sensitive topics.”

Sensitive topics, indeed.

The elementary school booklet covers masturbation, sexual intercourse, sexual orientation, abortion and contraception.

The booklet is a complement to the Human Growth and Development curriculum that takes various forms throughout public school districts across the state.

It’s unclear how prevalent the Human Growth and Development curriculum is throughout the state. However, a 2012 law changed several requirements of school districts that do offer Human Growth and Development.

Those changes include:

Other topics, such as masturbation, are open to the school board’s discretion.

In Oak Creek, parents can pick up the booklet at school during registration, according to Sara Burmeister, the school district superintendent. Parents also are sent letters before specific topics are taught and can opt their children out of the curriculum, though Burmeister says that rarely happens.

School boards, too, can opt not to offer Human Growth and Development.

When it comes to a grade-schooler’s questions about masturbation, staff will first define the term “the stimulation of one’s own genitals for the purpose of achieving sexual pleasure.”

Staff, though, are advised not to answer questions of personal sexual experience.

The handbook also directs staff to explain that some people masturbate and some do not. And encourages staff to “help students understand that attitudes toward masturbation may be a strong part of family values and beliefs and opinions often vary.”

Students, according to the handbook, will “be encouraged to talk to parents in order to help them develop their own values and beliefs about masturbation.”

Burmeister said the language in the booklet doesn’t mean masturbation will be discussed with or taught to students of any grade level. Staff can decide whether they should answer a child’s questions on masturbation and other sensitive topics.

“All it does is say this is how we define these terms at the appropriate grade level when it comes up,” she said. “So parents will know if their kid asks ‘What is this?’ parents will know how our committee defines the terms as we would use them in the schools. Sometimes kids are too young and you can say to them, and I know I did with my kids, ‘That’s something you don’t have to worry about now.’”

“We are more of a conservative community,” she said.

In the McFarland School District, in addition to similar policies for discussing masturbation, an objective for third graders is to discuss suicide.

A sixth-grade objective is to “define sexual intercourse, including oral and anal intercourse.”

McFarland school officials did not return calls from Wisconsin Reporter.

How much discretion should elementary schools and school boards have regarding teaching about sexually related topics?

Is this something the schools should teach, or would you prefer the alternative: “Go ask your parents”?

How about we not teach ANY of this unimportant garbage?

Extra problem with homos. Making EVERYTHING have to devolve into discussions of sex, no matter what kind.

Why do fourth graders need to know about such things? Is the Left intentionally trying to sexualize America? Are they trying to prepare the little ones so when a pedophile attacks them, they know what to do (Islam: the religion of submission)?

I don’t know, I think teaching masturbation is a pretty good idea.

Since our worthless liberal infested school system won’t (or can’t) teach math and science, these kids will grow up in a second rate America that will be nothing more than a cheap labor pool for the rest of the world.

Masturbation may be the only thing they can afford!

“When it comes to a grade-schooler’s questions about masturbation, staff will first define the term “the stimulation of one’s own genitals for the purpose of achieving sexual pleasure.”

NO, and NO, and NO - the ONLY answer a school teacher should have for a pre-teen or an early teen is “ask your parents” and UNLESS the question comes from an older teen student in a class the teacher is giving to older teens on human sexual reproduction, then that should still be the teacher’s only answer - “ask your parents”

Excuse me, but doesn’t it seem like the Trayvons etc all seem to definitely have understood all the sex Ed they get, but not so much the English, Math, and History?

Two ways to deal with that. Focus on the subjects the kids don’t seem to understand. Or forget them all, and just teach sex, drugs, and rock and roll. And graduate every last kid with honors.

Illinois just passed the Comprehensive Sex Education Curriculum.

The Illinois Family Institute has excellent research information on the homosexual agenda/explicit sex education.

Pastors, stand up on this issue as well your congregations. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act. We all will be held accountable for our actions.

I looked it up: despair -- and the sin thereof -- at least in the Catholic sense, has a very specific meaning and is not the same as this. The specific definition involves the total loss of hope for salvation.

” Are they trying to prepare the little ones so when a pedophile attacks them, they know what to do “

Pretty much.

The left constantly retorts the argument that their push to normalize homosexuality is just a path to eventually normalize pedophilia by saying that they are not the same because a child cannot consent to sex.

What they mean is that kids dont know enough about sex to make it no big deal and acceptable when a pedo makes a pass at them, so they will pump as much sex-ed into their heads at such a young age that in 5-10 years there will be enough voters to ensure that laws will make it “ok” to engage in sex acts with minors.

Look at the news stories about “transgender” kids, or how they gush over some minor child proclaiming their “sexual orientation” on YouTube, or how a minor can get an abortion with their parent’s knowledge. Nevermind all of the sexual imagery that passes off as TV.

It’s all about making sex at that age as normal as it would be for an adult.

And if a normal (heterosexual) kid got on YT and proclaimed his/her normalcy as a heterosexual, the Left, the "news" media and the sex-baiters (similar to the race-baiters) would decry that as being "hateful" and mean-spirited" and "offensive" to homos. Too bad. Tough shi.........

At that age, I was learning cursive and boys had cooties.

Nevermind how this will be destroying childhood but it'll bring more false molestation charges against teachers.

Another stolen terminology, there is no such thing as anal intercourse, it is anal penetration.

Well according to Merriam-Webster, "intercourse" is defined as follows:

in·ter·course Definition of INTERCOURSE

1: connection or dealings between persons or groups

2: exchange especially of thoughts or feelings : communion

3: physical sexual contact between individuals that involves the genitalia of at least one person ; especially : sexual intercourse 1

Origin of INTERCOURSE
Middle English intercurse, probably from Middle French entrecours, from Medieval Latin intercursus, from Latin, act of running between, from intercurrere to run between, from inter- + currere to run — more at car First Known Use: 15th century
