A New Jersey lawmaker has revealed that sex ed curriculum suggested for children as young as third grade is directing them to watch videos that normalize and encourage them to consume pornography.

The Twitter account Libs of TikTok shared a video from the website Amaze, which the New Jersey state sex ed curriculum reportedly recommends to children as young as third grade.

Amaze professes to produce “medically accurate, age-appropriate, affirming, and honest sex education” but one video it features lets kids know that it’s “normal” to consume pornography.

“Is it normal to watch porn?” the video says. “Yes. It’s normal. Lots of people watch porn. After all, it’s right there and it’s free. And anyway, many people are curious about the sex stuff.”

On her Facebook page, New Jersey state Senator Holly Schepisi revealed that she had reviewed the school sex ed standards and found that some lessons were “unnecessary sexualizing children” and was stunned that kids were directed to watch Amaze’s videos.

“Although I voted against the legislation mandating certain sexual education classes for even the youngest of children I’ve taken a measured approach and have waited to further comment until I saw what was proposed,” she wrote.

“Today I reviewed all of the model school instruction materials and I truly think New Jersey has lost its d*mn mind,” she stated, noting that she included a Dropbox link which enabled parents to review what their children would be taught.

“For me the most outrageous part are teachers are instructed to promote a website Amaze and its YouTube channel to kids as young as 9 for them to get additional information on sex ed,” she noted.

Included in the lessons for children “by the end of Grade 5” are gender identity lessons which tell students that “Our gender has to do with being male, female, a combination of the two or neither. Our gender identity is our inner knowledge of what our gender is.”

The lesson, which goes on to explain heterosexuality, homosexuality, and bisexuality, also tells children that “Even though the phrase ‘sexual orientation’ has the word ‘sexual’ in it, in many cases, people have strong feelings of love before feelings of sexual attraction or before acting on those feelings. You don’t need to have done anything sexual with someone to know your sexual orientation.”

This comes as Florida’s Parental Rights in Education bill has brought sexual education instruction in schools to the forefront of the national conversation.

Here at Elizabeth Johnston Ministries, we have been working for years to expose just how in depth public school sexual education curricula can go both in normalizing lascivious sexual lifestyles and indoctrinating children into secular sexual ethics and gender identity.

Parents’ voices are finally being heard by local lawmakers, so its never been more important to know what is being taught in your local schools and to let public officials know they are accountable to you.
