Parents keep fighting left-wing push for sex-ed lessons

children in schoolParents in Washington state are fighting again to stop a bill in the state legislature that would mandate radical sex-ed program starting in kindergarten.

Informed Parents of Washington, a grassgroups group of parents, says the curriculum is more about LGBT-positive lessons than sex and biology. 

Stephanie Curry of the Family Policy Alliance says that accusation makes sense.

“What the Left is seeking to do, I think, is normalize their behavior, make it socially acceptable, and get advocates and people on board,” she warns. “And what better way than to reach them as young as kindergarten."

It is not a new left-wing idea. OneNewsNow has reported on parents in California, for example, fighting liberal state legislators who are pushing pro-LGBT lessons on young children, and also fighting public school leaders who are openly working to keep parents in the dark. 

"Celebrate Diversity" bannerProponents of the graphic sex-ed lessons claim it gives students “accurate” information about sex and reproduction, but parents are often aghast that such lessons teach their children about anal sex and orgasms, for example.

In a Facebook post, citing the state bill, Informed Parents says sixth graders will learn about "gender identifies" and the use of "they" for "her" or "him." 

The group warns in another post that "'comprehensive' doesn't mean what we think it means," referring to unknowing parents.

Curry says parents around the country have had enough and are pushing back.

"They had success in Ohio. They're having success in California,” she says. "And they had success in Washington last year where they defeated this comprehensive sex-ed bill because they rallied, they came together.”
