The Sex Ed Secrets Schools Don't Want You to Know
May 20, 2020
It's no wonder American students don't know basic history -- they're spending 70 hours of classroom time studying something else: sex!
That's just one of the astonishing revelations in FRC's pamphlet, "Sex Education in Public Schools: Sexualization of Children and LGBT Indoctrination." Cathy Ruse's new release, which hits just in time for "Sex Ed for All" month, takes a behind-the-scenes look at the shocking content, agenda, and broad effort to keep this information from moms and dads. Tuesday, on "Washington Watch," she sounded the alarm that every parent needs to hear: "It's not just New York. It's not just California. It's everywhere."
We're talking, she explains, about graphic -- almost pornographic material. And while her pamphlet came with a content warning, the real irony is that most of the curriculum she covered for kids doesn't. Not only are parents unaware about what's being taught -- they're not being told where it's being taught. Make no mistake, Cathy explains, this isn't just a radical sexual ideology that's popping up in health class. It's in the hallways and on the calendar and in history class. "It's spreading beyond sex ed class into the whole environment of the school."
"And that includes things like transgenderism, born in the wrong body, the lessons of the LGBT crusade, which has really become the heart of sex ed lessons today. So [we're] fighting on two fronts... because it's not only the sex ed classes, but it's also the policies" that are permeating education."
Of course, that's what we should expect when the main providers of this content are groups like Planned Parenthood and the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC). "These are powerful, wealthy, and in some cases, international pressure groups that are using sex ed to push a political agenda. And they're even candid about it. They're not even shy about that anymore... It's not about education anymore. It's about promoting social justice warriors. It's about gender ideology. It's even about eradicating white privilege... It's indoctrinating them and using sex education as the tool to reach them. And it's all behind parents' backs."
But there are plenty of things parents can do. Cathy details a lot of them in her brochure, but the biggest advice she can give any mom and dad is this: We need to exercise the power we have. There are tools parents don't even realize they can use to protect their children. Find out what those are by reading Cathy's research -- and then sharing it with other families. The time to act is now.
