An Illinois mother gave her local school board an earful over new sex education standards that she claims will “sexually [groom] young children by introducing sensitive and inappropriate topics.”

According to WGEM, both chambers of the Illinois legislature recently passed S.B. 0818, a bill requiring schools that teach sex education to use the National Sex Education Standards (NSES).

The bill is awaiting a signature from Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker, a Democrat.

At a school board meeting, Becky Swan, a mother and graduate of Illinois District 87, stated that the bill imposes a “form of sexual harassment” and “destroys local control over curriculum.”

Swan’s remarks were captured in a video of the meeting released by a local news outlet.

Swan read a sample of curriculum from the standards, demonstrating that students in kindergarten through second grade are expected to “list medically accurate names for body parts, including the genitals” and “define gender, gender identity, and gender-role stereotypes.”

“You have a hard time hearing this from me, but this is for 10 years old and up, and this bill was passed for five-year-olds,” she said.

Further, the curriculum will require students between sixth to eighth grade to define vaginal, anal, and oral sex.

By the end of fifth grade, students will be made to “explain common human sexual development and the role of hormones (e.g., romantic and sexual feelings, masturbation, mood swings, timing of pubertal onset),” as well as “differentiate between sexual orientation and gender identity.”

Swan also showed the board pictures from It’s Perfectly Normal: Changing Bodies, Growing Up, Sex, and Sexual Health, a book used under the standards in some schools. According to NPR, the book includes several full-color illustrations of naked people and sections discussing sexual orientation.
