I have written columns about how public schools are sexualizing children at a younger age. Florida is leading in this area and the FL Department of Education and local school boards, like the Sarasota County School Board, are complicite.
Eric Ernst from the Sarasota Herald-Tribune reports:
When he picked up his son from Woodland Middle School in North Port the other day, Greg Brown was a bit surprised by the boy’s question.
“Hey Dad, what’s a condom?” he asked.
“Why do you want to know that?” Brown responded.
“We took a survey today and they wanted to know if I use one,” the boy said.
His son’s classmates, seated at the table with him, soon peppered Brown with more inquiries inspired by the questionnaire.
Brown’s concern is this: While the two had touched on the origin of babies, he hadn’t discussed sexual intercourse or condoms with his son, who just turned 12. He was waiting until the boy reached puberty.
Now, however, the school had forced his hand, and he resented it, in part because he did not know it was coming.
Another parent had a similar reaction.
Public school children are being exposed to sex via multiple sanctioned programs, including Common Core. I wrote in my July column “Florida Middle School students reading child pornography“:
Parents at Laurel Nokomis Middle School in Sarasota, Florida became outraged when they learned their children were reading the child pornography book Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson. Speak is about a 13-year old being raped.
One of the parents submitted a complaint to the Sarasota County School Board to have the book removed from the Laurel Nokomis reading list. The book is used in a “gifted language arts class” taught by Jewell DeMarco. It is the language used in the book that the parents object to.
Speak promotes ”group rate abortions” on page 30. Other examples of bad behaviors in the book are: “Student steals late passes” (theft) – page 26, ”sleep with the football team on Saturday night and be reincarnated as virginal goddesses on Monday” (promiscuity)- page 29; ”slit my throat” (child suicide) – page 32, and ”the crowd bumping and grinding the horny Hornet heinies” (group sex) – page 141.
Speak also contains graphic language including: ”bitch”- page 20, “Asshole” – page 28, “pissed” – pages 30, 64 and 74, ”Bitchy”- page 163. Other words and phrases used throughout the book are too graphic to include in the column.
Dr. Judith Reisman has researched how this has come about. In her column “How Our Public Schools Came to Promote a Social Disease” Reisman states, “Not so long ago, American high-school students were educated in ‘sex hygiene.’ They were told, ‘Save the conjugal act until marriage or you’ll get horrid diseases; if you’re a girl, you might become pregnant; and, boys, don’t marry an easy girl.’ The lessons yielded low rates of STDs, illegitimacy, abortions, fatherless households, and welfare dependency. They saw high rates of virginity (even Hugh Hefner was a virgin in college) and social stability.”
“But after World War II, a new ‘science’ arose that transformed sex education into an ally for the sexual revolution. Leading the radicals was the closeted sexual psychopath, Professor Alfred C. Kinsey, ‘the father of the sexual revolution.’ Backed by Indiana University and the Rockefeller Foundation, Kinsey’s pseudoscientific claims in Sexual Behavior in the Human Male (1948) and Sexual Behavior in the Human Female (1953) would displace the Judeo-Christian worldview in sexual criminal law, public policy, medicine, art, and entertainment, and would lead to the creation of a new ‘sex education’ field,” notes Reisman.
By the 1970s, public schools in the U.S. were flooded with radical sex “education.” Thomas Sowell and others have noted that teen “pregnancies soared as ‘sex education’ spread pervasively throughout the public schools.” This all helped to erode the barriers to legalized abortion, until Roe v. Wade wiped them out in 1973. That same year, Planned Parenthood’s president, Alan Guttmacher, noted, “The only avenue the International Planned Parenthood Federation and its allies could travel to win the battle for abortion on demand is through sex education.”
We are now reaping what we have sown.
