Calif. School District Forbids Parents to Remove Kids From Graphic Sex Ed Class

California passed a law in 2015 known as the California Healthy Youth Act, part of which expanded and overhauled sexual education classes to include information about homosexuality, gender identity issues and abortion, and which is just now being implemented in schools across the state.

The new sex ed course is intended to help students develop “healthy attitudes” with regard to such issues as “gender (and) sexual orientation” while also informing students about the effectiveness of various contraceptives and spurring an “objective discussion” about “parenting, adoption, and abortion.”

According to LifeSite News, there are some parents who don’t want their children being exposed to everything the curriculum offers.

There’s plenty to object to.

The curriculum includes a study guide about transgender issues and a “sexual health toolkit,” which teaches young students about such things as sex toys and anal intercourse, downplays such quaint notions as “abstinence” and “virginity” and relies heavily upon left-wing organizations such as Planned Parenthood and Advocates for Youth — which are pro-homosexuality and pro-abortion — as resources.


The 2015 law recognized that “parents and guardians have the ultimate responsibility for imparting values regarding human sexuality to their children,” and as such had expressly allowed for parents and guardians to “excuse their children from participation” in the courses as a whole without any sort of penalty.

However, if parents allow their children to take the course at all, they can only keep their children from some aspects, specifically dealing with the physical organs. Otherwise, the children must be exposed to every part of it, including sex toys, anal sex and homosexuality. And parents will be in no position to object.

So, having a kid learn about sexual health means having the kids learn about homexuality and anal sex, too?

That’s the intepretation the Orange County Board of Education — more specifically Orange County Department of Education general counsel Ronald Wenkart — has reached anyway.

That’s because a statement in the law specifically exempts from the parents’ opt-out power “instruction, materials, presentations, or programming that discuss gender, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, discrimination, harassment, bullying, intimidation, relationships, or family and do not discuss human reproductive organs and their functions.”

In a memo published in full by the San Juan Capistrano Patch, Wenkart indicated that students could only be excused from the portions of the courses that dealt directly with human reproductive organs, and all other information imparted by the courses was mandatory.

Wenkart did, however, suggest that parents retained the right to “advise their children that they disagree with some or all of the information” put forward in the courses and were permitted to “express their views on these subjects to their children.” Gee, thanks for the permission.


The attorney also cited judicial precedents at the conclusion of his four-page memo that claimed “parents do not have a constitutional right to excuse their children from portions of the school curriculum that they find objectionable.”

Needless to say, there are rumblings of pushback brewing among parents .

According to LifeSite News, Heidi St. John, an author who runs a Facebook site called The Busy Mom, advised that parents in California raise the issue with their local school boards, as well as contact their local political representatives in order to make their displeasure at the decision known.

“These are our children!” she wrote in a Facebook post in April. “They do not belong to the schools.”

This episode is just the latest example of how public schools have become little more than indoctrination centers designed to cram as much of the progressive agenda and beliefs into students’ heads as possible, indoctrination that is increasingly being made mandatory.

This also serves as a glaring example of the notion held by far too many progressive leftists that they know what is best for everybody else, even more so than parents know about their own children, and everyone should just be quiet and accept their great wisdom, even if we wholeheartedly disagree.

Not just the sexuals, but the dreaded homos and the butt stuff they do. :eek

Apparently it's still offensive to learn about sexuality in sex ed class, indoctrination according to Hairy because right-wing buzzword against having a healthy attitude towards something social conservatives still get the vapors over or something. :shrug

And they call liberals "snowflakes" lol.

So what do they mean by "Graphic" sex ed. Do they give them copies of Hustler? or let them watch Story Daniels take it up the butt?

Nevermind I just saw that they will be showing guys taking it up the butt, I'm sure that's OK,

The main take-away here is that the Government is FORCING children and parents to do what the GOVERMENT wants. Hairy is right, this IS indoctrination. And on top of it, they will not allow guest speakers to talk about abstinence from sex and drugs as the best way not to get aids.

Why is it that Liberals are always OK with the government forcing social change on people?

Would they be OK with the Government forcing kids to learn gun safety? wouldn't that save lives?

Jump immediately into shrieking that social conservatives are opposed to all sex education at the suggestion they object to parts of the curriculum. Parents after all must submit to the radical Leftist agenda indoctrinating their children. Any objection will plunge us into the dark ages. ;)

Exactly! The key word for me was "Graphic" sex ed. Apparently sex ed needs to be graphic now-a-days. And they are not allowed to teach abstinence, cause that is horrible! And above all, parents should NOT be able to question government.

I have a feeling more charter schools will be popping up in California, if the government allows it.
