The Left has used our educational institutions for decades to increase its control and influence over politics, culture and the media. By controlling the curriculum at all levels of the educational system, students from preschool to graduate school can be taught one single view of religion, sexuality, economics and political ideology. With each subsequent generation, the effect of this indoctrination increases and the methods can become more extreme.
Now, at an accelerating pace, elementary schools and even preschools, are promoting a radically liberal view on sexuality and gender. This radical sex education agenda teaches children, years away from hitting puberty, that gender is entirely fluid, that concepts of masculinity and femininity lead to violence, that homosexuality is both common and enviable and that their parents are bigoted for believing in traditional families.
The news is filled with stories of preschool and kindergarten-age children being subjected to lessons about gender-bending and homosexuality before they are old enough to comprehend them.
One of the earliest examples in this wave of homosexual and transgender indoctrination occurred in 2006 in Lexington, Massachusetts when second grade students were taught about homosexuality through a book in which two princes get married.
Parents Rob and Robin Wirthlin told reporters at the time, "We are outraged. This is a highly charged social issue." They went on to question why the school chose to introduce the topic to children so young and were told that since homosexual marriage is legal in Massachusetts they would not be able to opt out of the instruction that promotes homosexuality.
In 2009, as pro-homosexuality lessons were enshrined in the California curriculum, Judge Frank Roesch of Alameda Superior Court in California not only denied a request by parents to have their children excluded from pro-homosexual instruction in elementary school but publically labeled the parents as bigots. Citing the fact that gay marriage is now legal, education directors and judges are able to force all students to take part in lessons that not only teach about homosexuality but actively promote it and the homosexual lifestyle.
More recently, the Bewsey Lodge Primary school in the UK stirred up trouble when teacher Sarah Hopson required students to write letters from the perspective of Prince Henry to a character in their story, a male servant named Thomas, asking the servant to marry him. This lesson not only promoted gay marriage and the destruction of the class system but by putting the 6 year-old students in the role of a gay prince writing love letters, stepped over the line into promotion of homosexuality for children too young to understand.
Students in the Bewsey Lodge attend school in gender-neutral uniforms and must agree to a code of conduct stating that anyone's gender identity, marriage and sexual orientation are to be accepted without question. The Bewsey Lodge may be on the fringe for its promotion of homosexuality and transgressive gender politics, but it is far from alone.
In 2013, an organization called Stonewall Scotland was given funds from the national lottery system totaling $20,000 so that it could distribute an "alternative families" DVD to every primary school in Scotland. These DVDs were then shown as part of a pro-homosexual marriage and homosexual family curriculum that parents could not opt out of, teaching students as young as five that it is perfectly normal to have two father or two mothers.
California's Rocklin Academy become a lightning rod for transgender criticism after students in elementary school began officially to 'change genders'and their classmates were presented with books such as "I am Jazz," by the transgender reality TV star Jazz Jennings, and "Red: A Crayon's Story," about a blue crayon that identifies as a red crayon. Some parents reported that their young children came home confused and afraid that they too would begin to "transition" to the opposite gender after a male classmate left to change into a dress and announce his change of gender.
At the end of the 2017-2018 school year, parents in 16 cities across 4 countries protested what has become increasingly radical and transgressive sexual education with a Sex Ed Sit Out. Students were held out of class and parents gathered to protest the curriculum changes with signs that read "Let kids be kids" and "How dare you take funding to destroy my child's innocence!" to call attention to the fact that students as young as five years-old are being forced to learn about transgenderism, respect for homosexual families, masturbation, contraception and the elements of sexual pleasure. Critics have labeled this ever more "progressive" curriculum, designed by pro-abortion and LGBT radicals, as pornography masquerading as sexual education.
But are these isolated incidents of certain states, school districts and gender organizations that have crossed boundaries, or is this part of a larger, more organized movement towards radically inappropriate sex education across the world?
A recent article documenting the efforts of The United Nations' Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) exposes the orchestrated attempt to implement this curriculum worldwide for children as young as Kindergarten age. In March of 2018, UNESCO published what it is calling "comprehensive" sex education guidelines to be used in countries all across the world, and they leave few moral boundaries untested.
The document lists learning objectives for different ages. For those unfamiliar with UNSECO's new comprehensive sex education program, ask yourself if you would want your five-year-oldson or daughter learning this, or your nine-year-old child learning their set lessons. Here are a few of the learning objectives for five, nine and twelve-year-old children, as published by UNSECO:
At 5 years of age
- Boys will be able to "describe" non-traditional families, such as lesbians raising a child or homosexual men as parents.
- Little girls will be able to "define gender and biological sex and describe how they are different."
- Children will recognize gender as a mere social construct and verbally "reflect on how they feel about their own biological sex and gender."
- Children will "express respect" for homosexual parenting and follow the maxim, "all people should be able to love whom they want."
- Children will seek out "trusted adults" other than their parents to learn about "themselves, their feelings, and their bodies.
At 9 years of age
- Boys and girls must understand that traditional masculine and feminine concepts are harmful, "gender-role stereotypes" that contribute to violence.
- Children should demonstrate respect for diverse practices related to sexuality.
- Pre-adolescents will be taught that masturbation is fine and not a self-centered misuse of sexuality.
- Young girls will be required verbally to articulate how they communicate and understand their different sexual feelings.
- Children must describe male and female responses to sexual stimulation and summarize key elements of sexual pleasure.
At 12 years of age
- Children entering adolescence will state that sexual feelings, fantasies and desires are healthy, without judgment regarding their desires.
- Children must support the right for everyone to express their sexual feelings.
- Children will learn how to use condoms and other contraceptives and express the wisdom of this choice
- Boys and girls will learn non-penetrative sexual behaviors, so they can experience sexual pleasure without getting an STD or becoming pregnant.
- Children will be taught by their school that sodomy is both a pleasurable and wise practice to avoid infection.
Do these standards align with what you believe children should be learning at the ages of 5, 9 and 12? Far from a few scattered examples,the numerous and extreme examples of school systems and states has now been joined by a written set of guidelines from the United Nations. Radical and militant LGBTQ organizations are infecting the educational systems of countries across the globe, and with the empowerment of the United Nations.
It may be time to counter the radical left's influence in education with another radical direction.. homeschooling.
In an article on homeschooling a few years ago, National Review's Kevin Williamson summed up the social power of homeschooling:
"There is exactly one authentically radical social movement of any real significance in the United States, and it is not Occupy, the Tea Party, or the Ron Paul faction. It is homeschoolers, who, by the simple act of instructing their children at home, pose an intellectual, moral, and political challenge to the government-monopoly schools, which are one of our most fundamental institutions and one of our most dysfunctional. Like all radical movements, homeschoolers drive the establishment bats."
