We have been warning about the radical ideology behind so-called “Comprehensive Sexuality Education” (CSE) for many years and in that time, it’s only become more mainstream and commonplace in America’s schools.
Now, we have learned of a school in Minnesota using a curriculum that involves several role-playing activities for teens involving fictional scenarios between straight, gay, and trans teen couples.
The curriculum was designed by Advocates for Youth, a group that is partnered with Planned Parenthood, and also written in large part by a former Planned Parenthood employee.
The role-playing activity is part of the “3R” approach, which stands for “rights, respect, responsibility.”
And while it is purportedly meant to instruct students about boundaries and healthy sexual relationships, like the majority of CSE programs, is decidedly supportive of all manner of teen sexual relationships and very distinctly normalizes sex acts between minors.
The students are given a backstory on the teens and their desire to have sex and told to role play a conversation in which the individuals decide whether or not to have sex.
Some examples (you can read the full text here):
“Terrence” is described as “You date girls you like, but haven’t done much sexually with them; you’ve kissed a couple of them, but didn’t find it very exciting. Now you feel very attracted to Morgan. When you kissed him last week, it felt wonderful, but also confusing. You just can’t stop thinking about Morgan and imagining his touch. You think you want to have sex with him, but you don’t want your family or friends to find out, because they would disapprove.”
“Graham” feels “lucky” to have “Marina” as his girlfriend. “She is beautiful and so nice to you. You like the fact that you come from different cultural backgrounds. You love touching Marina and want to have vaginal sex with her.”
Two girls, “Andie” and “Diana” are alone in a basement and considering having sex. Andie thinks Diana “is great and feel that this could be the relationship you’ve always wanted. You’ve never felt like this before and don’t want to do anything to turn Diana off. You feel open to all kinds of things with Diana, including commitment and sex. You plan to use protection if you and Diana decide to have sex.”
On Zee, who is considering having sex with trans teen Sydney, a biological male who identifies as a girl: “Biologically you were assigned female at birth but you hate all of the boxes that society puts people in and identify as genderqueer. You work hard to have a gender-nonconforming appearance and style. You enjoy gender-bending and you feel like with Sydney you have finally met someone who really ‘gets you.’”
Alpha News notes that should some students “have a homophobic response” to being asked to role-play LGBT characters, “it’s important to stop what you are doing, notice the interaction, and ask for the class members to reflect on what’s happening and why. Direct the students back to your class ground rules — and reinforce the agreement to be respectful — and that making homophobic comments is not respectful.”
While parents are able to opt their children out of the class, it’s hard to imagine that the personal moral convictions of students who are involved will clearly not be respected and any objection to homosexuality — or any extramarital sex, perhaps — would be strongly discouraged.
Although CSE curricula typically tout their goal of promoting safe sexual relationships, Julie Quist, a member of the Child Protection League, told the Richfield School Board this week that “programs like 3Rs are not effective.”
“The Institute for Research and Evaluation conducted a comprehensive study on the effectiveness of programs such as this,” she said. “Out of 60 school-based studies, no credible evidence of effectiveness was found for sustained reductions in teen pregnancy or STDs. There was no evidence of effectiveness for increasing consistent condom use. Failure rates included 88% failure to delay teen sexual initiation and 94% failure to reduce unprotected sex. 12% of these programs found significant negative effects on adolescent sexual health and/or risk behavior.”
“Claims that explicit sex education has been proven effective are not supported by the evidence.”
This is truly shocking stuff — but sadly, not surprising on our end as we’ve been following this trend for some time. CSE has absolutely no place in our nation’s schools and is clearly not working to promote safe sex — just a radical, decidedly ideological perspective on sexual relationships and gender identity.
Are you ready to stand up against this perverse use of tax dollars and perversion of the minds of our youth?
