    Angry parents descended on a Clark County School District Board of Trustees meeting this week after discovering the content of a proposed new "comprehensive sex education" curriculum that includes teaching 5-year-olds about masturbation. The proposed curriculum would include education about homosexuality as early as ages 5 through 8, teaching children to give everyone “respect regardless of who they are attracted to.” School children in kindergarten through grade 3 would also be taught that “touching and rubbing one’s genitals to feel good is called masturbation.” “You want to teach my 5-year-old how to masturbate?” challenged parent Julie Butler. "We certainly should...

    In Great Britain, the Liberal Democrat party is proposing that "age appropriate" sex education classes be introduced to include internet porn and social media for students as young as seven years old. The party wants to implement new courses that address sites and apps like Twitter and Snapchat, which can contain sexually explicit material. The party says it wants to avoid "extreme" subjects and make the courses age appropriate. "We're not saying as politicians children should be taught XYZ or ABC, as we're not the policy experts," Spokesman Ben Rothe said, according to the UK Mirror. "We're not saying children...

    Led by state representative Bob McDermott, outraged parents in Hawaii continue to fight valiantly to get an explicit sex instruction program coauthored by Planned Parenthood out of their middle schools. Rep. McDermott has just released his second meticulously researched report detailing the impropriety of the curriculum and violations of state and federal law regarding the testing and implementation of the program. At the same time, television ads have begun airing that feature a Hawaiian grandmother extolling the virtues of Pono Choices—dubbed Porno Choices by those who are familiar with the content.

    A new video probe by the group Live Action, known for exposing shocking abortion clinic techniques, reveals some Planned Parenthood counselors and associates pushing curious teens to engage in domination, sadism and even asphyxiation. “If it’s consensual, it’s OK,” said an unidentified Planned Parenthood counselor on a video trailer of a longer version due out Wednesday. Another warns that whipping during sex can leave “welts across the back.” And a third advisor tells the Live Action videographer posing as a teen seeking sex advice, “It just depends on what type of pain you can take.” The video preview can be...

    BATON ROUGE, LA, May 27, 2014 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Abortion providers will no longer be permitted to distribute sex education material in Louisiana's public schools, once Gov. Bobby Jindal signs a bill that passed the state Senate today. Senators approved H.B. 305, which bars any employee of an abortion facility or its affiliates from speaking about “human sexuality or family planning,” by a 31-5 vote. It passed the state House 91-6 on April 16; all six no votes were Democrats. The bill, which applies to both public and charter schools, now goes to Gov. Jindal, who has promised to sign it...

In the US it’s very simple: You do it through sex education,” former abortion clinic owner Carol Everett told participants at the Rose Dinner following the National March for Life on Thursday in Ottawa. Everett, who ran a chain of four abortion clinics in Texas from 1977-1983 — where an estimated 35,000 unborn children were aborted before her dramatic conversion and departure from the industry — told about 430 participants at the dinner that she had a goal of becoming a millionaire by selling abortions to teenage girls....

Francis Howell School District is facing a backlash for placing "It's Perfectly Normal," a book that includes images of naked people, intercourse, and other pornographic material, in its libraries. One parent told a local reporter that most parents "were shocked" when he "showed this to" them, and that "their next reaction was outrage."

    A pamphlet, intended for use in schools, has been called homosexual pornography and indoctrination by some concerned parents in the region of Reggio Emilia. Earlier this month, the national homosexual lobby group Arcigay distributed a leaflet at the Istituto Superiore Cattaneo-Dall'Aglio, a high school in Castelnuovo Monti, that included highly explicit language giving information on the best method for homosexuals to “have sex without risk.” The leaflet was aimed at “children up to 15 years” and includes instructions on oral and anal sex and the advice to “get a gay doctor, and be vaccinated against Hepatitis B.” It also details...

    Fertility is the missing chapter in sex education. Sobering facts about women’s declining fertility after their 20s are being withheld from ambitious young women, who are propelled along a career track devised for men. The refusal by public schools’ sex-education programs to acknowledge gender differences is betraying both boys and girls. The genders should be separated for sex counseling. It is absurd to avoid the harsh reality that boys have less to lose from casual serial sex than do girls, who risk pregnancy and whose future fertility can be compromised by disease. Boys need lessons in basic ethics and moral...

    Alliance Defending Freedom issued two letters Thursday concerning Planned Parenthood’s involvement in sex education curricula that an Arizona school district has considered in recent weeks–curricula that, if adopted, would likely violate a state law that requires preference to be given to abstinence, childbirth, and adoption, not abortion.  One of the letters exposes falsehoods in a recent Planned Parenthood Arizona e-mail about the pro-abortion group’s involvement in the Tempe Union High School District’s sex education curriculum considerations. The other letter asks the school district to recuse one of its board members from any consideration of the district’s adoption of sex education...

    A member of Hawaii’s House of Representatives is criticizing an ambitious, federally funded sex education program currently in use in 12 of the state’s public schools. The pilot curriculum, called “Pono Choices,” targets 11- to 13-year-old students. (“Pono” is a Hawaiian word that basically means “good” or “moral.”) Its creators include the University of Hawaii and, of course, Planned Parenthood. Rep. Bob McDermott, a Hawaii Republican, claims that the curriculum is “not age appropriate and not consistent with state policy” for a slew of reasons, reports EAGnews.org. McDermott’s biggest complaint is that the curriculum is wrong on a pretty major...

    Getting a reluctant child to give an elderly relative a kiss often requires some gentle persuasion. But parents who force their sons and daughters to give granny a peck on the cheek may be doing them harm, it was claimed yesterday. For instead of helping a child learn about showing affection, it may blur the boundaries of what is acceptable when it comes to physical contact, according to Lucy Emmerson, coordinator of the Sex Education Forum. She even claims that encouraging a youngster to blow a kiss, high-five or wave to a relative instead will help them avoid future sexual...

    "Safer sex curriculum” is a very inaccurate term for the salacious instructional fare promoted and taught by Planned Parenthood. A simple reading of the instructional materials shows that these programs are all about sexually stimulating even very young students—teaching them, in embarrassing graphic detail, and in mixed gender groups, the fun of sexual foreplay and sexual intercourse while attempting to persuade them to use condoms. One woman is standing up to fight Making Proud Choices!—one of the most graphic sexual foreplay curricula—and making a huge difference by doing so. Mary McLellan is fighting the implementation of this program in Charleston,...

The resource has drawn attention to the fact that “sexuality” is already included right through each year level of the health curriculum. Even in Catholic schools “sexuality” education is compulsory, although parents do have the right to be informed and are given the option of removing their children from these classes.

Aside from pure hubris, satisfying Gay political groups is a good guess, but the simple answer is because they can. The Chicago’s public schools are more than 85% Black or Latino and just 8.8% White. A combined 87% of Black and Hispanic Chicagoans live in poverty so they are as dependent upon White liberals as house pets are on their owners.

But linking to it on a website gets around that for now, while enlightened liberal educators wait for repressive laws and backward bitter clingers to catch up.

    It’s a useful distinction to consider. A particular moral idea governs left-wing views on social and health matters, and the left’s purpose with political advocacy is to put the power of government behind that view. By examining the left’s very different policy approaches to eating and sex, we can discern the features of the morality at work.The left’s governmental approach to sex today involves, among other things, the following:1. Advertising it to children through the public schools and encouraging them to explore and participate in it.2. Basing policy on the assumption that no solution to any problem lies in individuals...

    A Whig Manifesto ^ | Feb. 10, 2012 | Chuck Morse
    My co-host Patrick O'Heffernan stated on our program “Fairness Radio” that conservatives are concerned with morality while liberals care about “outcomes” and he is absolutely right. In his new book “Ameritopia” conservative radio talk show host Marc Levin makes this vary point when he observes that conservatives focus on “process” while liberals focus on “outcome.” Levin accurately views conservatism as libertarian and liberalism as utopian. Obviously there is no “outcome” except death, and for us believers, an afterlife. Indeed life is a process and civilization is and will remain an unfinished endeavor that is advanced by individual initiative operating in...

    Young elementary school pupils should use the proper names for body parts and know by the end of fifth grade that sexual orientation is "the romantic attraction of an individual to someone of the same gender or a different gender," according to sexual education guidelines released Monday by health and education groups. The nonbinding recommendations to states and school districts seek to encourage age-appropriate discussions about sex, bullying and healthy relationships, starting with a foundation even before second grade. Most U.S. children enter first grade at age 6. By presenting minimum standards that schools can use to formulate school curriculums...

    Madison - Schools that teach sexual education would have to promote marriage and tell students abstinence is the only reliable way to prevent pregnancy, under a bill the Senate passed Wednesday. The Republican-backed measure passed on a party-line 17-15 vote and now goes to the Republican-run Assembly. It would allow schools to teach abstinence-only courses, which has been banned in Wisconsin since last year under a law Democrats passed when they controlled state government. Also Wednesday, the Senate passed a bill creating an elected comptroller to keep an eye on Milwaukee County's finances. A law approved last year requires sex...
  • Mandatory Sex Ed Details May Be Too Racy for Parents: Report

    Details about the new sex education curriculum in New York City public schools are out -- and some are concerned the lessons are too racy.

Middle school students will be assigned "risk cards" that rate the safety of different activities, the paper says, from French kissing to oral sex. The workbooks for older students direct them to a website run by...

    California Schools Scrambling To Add Lessons On LGBT Americans Many are flummoxed about how to carry out a new law requiring California public schools to teach all students, from kindergartners to 12th-graders, about lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Americans. David Columbus, a senior and president of Downtown Magnets High School's Gay-Straight Alliance club, said he was pushed around and called names since he was 3 because he liked Barbie dolls. But, he said, he has thrived in the school's supportive environment. Teresa Watanabe October 16, 2011 At Wonderland Avenue Elementary School in Laurel Canyon, there are lesson plans on diverse...
