Editor’s Note: The following article contains graphic material about the comprehensive sexuality curriculum being offered to school-age children across the nation. Meridian is running this article because if you aren’t aware, you cannot stand against it and the welfare of our children is at stake.
In 2013 a dear friend sent me a most shocking email message. She forwarded it from a young mother living in Northern California. The email’s subject was: The Latest Horror! The horror the young mother articulated was the fifth-grade sex education program at her eleven-year-old daughter’s public school. She felt a strong desire to educate other parents on the scandalous lessons within the curriculum, and our mutual friend thought I could help her spread her message to a wider audience. She sent me a link to the teacher’s manual for the entire eight-week Planned Parenthood-designed curriculum called Making Proud Choices! And I was shocked.
The first activity to which she alerted me was “Condom Relay Races.” In the lesson plan, the teacher is told to instruct the boys and girls on condom use and demonstrate the steps in using one. She is directed to set up two anatomically correct, fully erect adult penis models and to put her classroom full of pre-teens into two lines.
She’s told to make it a fun activity.
The two teams of children have to race—each child has to put a condom onto the penis the proper way and verbalize the steps involved. The team who finishes first, wins.
My immediate reaction to this “fun” lesson? This is child abuse, and I would resign my position before being forced to teach this deplorable lesson to children. It’s more suitable to a drunken fraternity party than a classroom full of vulnerable kids. I remember vividly what it was like to be eleven years old, and I’ve worked with eleven-year-old children for three decades. I can assert with authority that most eleven-year-olds forced to touch fully erect man-sized penis models and discuss condoms, penises, and sex would be profoundly traumatized.
A curriculum of overt sexual indoctrination
The initial page of the teachers’ manual would give a person the idea that the program simply focuses on preventing sexually transmitted diseases, AIDS, and unplanned pregnancies, (which, by the way, is too much information for eleven-year-olds), but as soon as you turn the page, the overt sexual indoctrination of children begins.
Even the rules, which are to be posted throughout the eight weeks of lessons, are a form of indoctrination and could lead to the abuse of children. The second rule, “Don’t Yuck My Yum (WOW),” states, “If someone feels the need to make a noise about a specific thing which may be a sexual activity we say, ‘WOW.’ We don’t say, ‘eww’ because we don’t want to say anything bad about something someone else likes. This would take away the safe space of the classroom and not everyone would feel comfortable sharing.”
Never mind that almost every single word and activity the teacher must present is excruciatingly uncomfortable for the teacher and an assault on the innocence and privacy of every child in the room, and “Eww” is the only appropriate response.
As I continued reading the Making Proud Choices! teachers’ manual, I felt sexually violated, and I had to repeatedly get up to pace the room because I was fuming that children and teachers are being abused with this sort of inappropriate curriculum. The lessons started out telling the eleven-year-olds: “Proud and responsible behavior includes protecting yourself by using a condom when you have sex. By sex, we mean vaginal, anal, or oral sex (VAO).”
Vaginal, anal, and oral sex (referred to casually as VAO) is introduced and normalized in every single lesson, and in one lesson, kids are taught to protect themselves during anal and oral sex by using a “dental dam.” I had no idea what this meant, so I had to look it up. I was so shocked by what I saw in the search results, I couldn’t bring myself to open any of the links, but I was able to understand enough to learn dental dams, originally created to help dentists during oral surgery, are now being used between the mouth and anus or vagina during oral sex, and our school leaders feel this is appropriate information for eleven-year-olds.
This was all so over the top, bizarre, and abusive I thought maybe it was limited to just one misguided school district in Northern California, that is until a mom reached out to me about a story of a very similar sex education program for sophomores at a high school in the suburbs north of Chicago, and a teacher friend sent me an entire website created by parents fighting the same sorts of lessons confronting children in Massachusetts. Then a teacher in my home district in Southern California called me in a panic. She told me she and her teacher colleagues were required to attend teacher trainings in February 2017 on a very similar sex education curriculum called Teen Talk….”
