People in the Windy City are getting blown away all right--but not by the weather. Hello, I'm Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council in Washington, D.C. Kindergarteners in Chicago are learning at least three letters: S-E-X. Under a proposal from the city's Board of Education, Chicago may be the first city to force sex education on kids as young as five. On top of the regular lessons for students on puberty, STDs, and contraception, officials said the new curriculum would also include topics like homosexuality, cross-dressing, and bullying. A local health worker said, "[It's] important that we provide students of all ages with accurate and appropriate information so they can make healthy choices." She's right. Information is important--from parents, in their own time, and in accordance with their own values. Obviously, this is all part of a coordinated effort to sexualize kids. If this were really about protecting children--and not indoctrinating them--Chicago would be implementing the only sex-ed with a 100% success rate: abstinence.
