Imagine your sweet daughter, barely into puberty, coming home from school and showing you a photograph she took with her phone of a sex poster at school; a poster that lists the many ways people “express their sexual feelings," including "grinding," "anal sex", "oral sex", and just about everything else you can think of. And imagine, even further, that the school district representative, when asked about the poster, shrugs and says it is part of a health and science curriculum that “aligns with national standards” of sexuality education.

You’d be right to be mad.

Only this isn’t a thought experiment. This is real life “sex ed” in the heartland of America.

Mark Ellis, a dad whose daughter attends a public middle school within the Shawnee Mission School District in Kansas hit the news when he found out the truth about what goes on in America's schools these days. He was shocked at the explicit nature of the school-authorized poster and perplexed by the school’s claim that the school’s sexual education curriculum is meant to promote abstinence. “This has nothing to do with abstinence or sexual reproduction,” he observed.

He’s right. But, sadly, many of our nation's public schools teach the lurid propaganda every day.

Most sexuality education curriculum materials are designed not to promote abstinence but to encourage children to experiment with sex. Any kind of sex. Programs like the one Mr. Ellis protested present all types of sexual activity as equal and perfectly normal for the youngest of children to engage in, from male-female intercourse to masturbation to homosexual practices.

The reason is quite simple.

For the left, children have a “right” to have sex with no guilt, no consequences, and no commitments. And they are going to teach them how to do it, by golly.

Educators, school boards, and school districts have been snowed by “sex education” experts who peddle the claim that “comprehensive” sex education programs are designed to promote abstinence as much as “safer sex.” They are not. Sprinkling a few words about abstinence into a curriculum loaded with explicit “how to” information is simply a subterfuge. The real agenda is to expose innocent children to sexual practices that they couldn't even imagine at their tender ages without some adult planting the idea into their heads.
