Austin Independent School District in Texas is falling under fire after offering anal sex and oral sex be taught to students....STUDENTS!
Parents and pastors in the area have openly expressed their opposition to the curriculum. However, the district's trustees voted on Tuesday morning, and chose to move forward with the new pornographic sex education policy.
The father of a fifth grader demanded to know who gave the school district the right to teach his child how to have anal and oral sex.
“Who gave you the right, Austin ISD? You have overstepped,” the rightfully frustrated dad said.
Teachers will be teaching (in graphic detail) on gender identity, anal sex, oral sex, abortion, and how to get birth control without parental consent.
This is absolutely absurd. If I was a parent in that district, I would pull my child immediately. It is one thing to teach normal sexual education, where students learn about their bodies and reproduction. Key word in that sentence being "NORMAL." However, this is far from that mark.
As if that wasn't bad enough, the district also decided that they will be teaching students to stop using words like "mother" and "father."
The material says: “Use gender inclusive language. It is important to avoid terms which refer to only ‘male’ or ‘female’ identities when speaking with young children as this can limit their understanding of gender into binaries and can exclude children who may not identify within these identities.”
They want people to use words like "parents" or "guardians" to be more integrating.
Texas Values, one of the state’s leading family advocacy groups, warned that the Austin ISD was sending a message that people of faith are no longer welcome in the school district.
“Austin ISD has broken the sacred trust between school and parent,” Texas Values spokesman David Walls said in a statement. “Austin parents have no reason to entrust their children to a school district that welcomes sex criminals and sexually explicit materials in the school.”
This is just one more reason that I plan to homeschool my children. I don't live in Texas, but if policies like this are being implemented in one place, it's only a matter of time before it is pushed on other school districts.
