Citizen Link Blog, Cushman, 1/10/12: National “Sexuality Standards” vs. Parental Rights? ( here)[Excerpts]— The Associated Press (Hefling, AP Education Writer, Washington DC, 1/10/12) is running a story in nationwide news outlets promoting the advent of “national sexuality education standards.”
What this actually amounts to is a wish list put together by some of the largest “safe sex,” abortion and homosexual advocacy groups in the nation—who are using this as a marketing campaign to get their agenda promoted in your local schools. [The] promoters, developers and “advisory committee” members attributed in the report, include:
• the nation’s largest teachers union, the National Education Association
• the nation’s largest homosexual activist group devoted entirely to targeting kids in K-12 schools—GLSEN, the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network
• Planned Parenthood Federation of America and SIECUS (Sexuality Information and Education Council of the United States)
So what do these groups actually want taught in schools? Here is just a sampling:
“By the end of the 2nd grade, students should be able to…identify different kinds of family structures” and “Demonstrate ways to show respect for different types of families.” [TBC: They are redefining the meaning of “family.”]
“By the end of the 5th grade, students should be able to…define sexual orientation as the romantic attraction of an individual to someone of the same gender or a different gender.”
“By the end of the 8th grade, students should be able to…access accurate information about gender identity, gender expression and sexual orientation.” (Translation: By 8th grade, students should be given contact information, Web sites and advocacy-based resources from homosexual and transgender activists groups).
“By the end of the 8th grade, students should be able to…describe the steps to using a condom correctly.”
“By the end of the 12th grade, students should be able to…analyze the influence of friends, family, media, society and culture on the expression of gender, sexual orientation and identity….”
“By the end of the 12th grade, students should be able to…compare and contrast the laws relating to pregnancy, adoption, abortion and parenting.”
Even more disturbing than these “standards,” is the lack of guidance in the report for how schools should respect the rights of parents who want to direct how, when and if their children are exposed to controversial topics like homosexuality, abortion and condom instruction.” more here
Is this what we want taught to our children in public schools? How to using condoms correctly? Is oral sex, sex? (and thank you, Mr. Clinton).
This isn’t just vile, it’s a destructive agenda.
Be informed, be diligent and be the best parent you can be. We only have one opportunity to raise our children to be the kind of adults we want them to be. And that is the polar positive of the Liberal agenda.
