Red alert, folks!!
A pack of Democratic legislators in Kentucky has proposed a bill that would mandate comprehensive sexual education classes for all children in the state from kindergarten through twelfth grade.
House Bill 296, sponsored by Lisa Willner (D-Louisville), was introduced late last month as part of the 2020 Regular Session. It would require schools to establish minimum requirements for comprehensive sex education classes, including curriculum and instructional materials “designed to improve students’ physical, mental, emotional, social, and behavioral well-being.”
As we’ve previously written, it is not the prerogative of the teacher to use pseudo-scientific materials to attempt to “improve” students’ well-being in this manner. This is little more than a smokescreen to indoctrinate our children with pro-LGBT dogma, gender theory, and “sex-positive” ideology.
For what it’s worth, the bill would require schools to allow teachers to answer questions related to comprehensive sex education. It would also require schools to make the sex ed curriculum available upon a parent or guardian’s request and give parents the opportunity to opt their children out of class. The law also includes a clause allowing parents to sue their child’s school if they fail to notify parents or make curriculum available to them.
In addition to Willner, 12 other Democrats have co-sponsored the bill, which is currently under review by the state’s education committee.
According to Bowling Green Daily News, each school district would be required to provide students instruction covering “human anatomy, reproduction and sexual development, along with effective use of condoms and other birth control methods, such as abstinence.”
The curriculum would also touch on “healthy relationships – including how ‘gender stereotypes can limit all people’ – and the ‘affirmative recognition that people have different sexual orientations, gender identities and gender expressions,’ among other topics.”
There you have it, folks.
Rep. Patti Minter (D-Bowling Green) told the Daily News that if students don’t receive such instruction in school, they’re more likely to get inaccurate and potentially harmful information elsewhere.
Excuse me, but when did public schools get the monopoly on wisdom and human knowledge? Are parents truly incapable of educating their children on even the most basic facts of life? How dumb do they think we are??
Minter also claimed that HB 296 would help minimize the risk of unplanned pregnancies and the spread of sexually transmitted diseases, which she says are on the rise in Kentucky. Kind of like how the D.A.R.E. programs in schools helped minimize drug use in children, right? Oh wait, no, it turns out kids who graduated from D.A.R.E. programs were more likely to experiment with illicit drugs than those who didn’t. Why should “comprehensive” sex ed be any different??
Thankfully, D.A.R.E. lost its federal funding due to its nearly comedic ineffectiveness back in 1998. When will our society realize that pornographic sex ed deserves the same treatment?
