Schools are closed and the kids are home, but they are still prey to the Comprehensive Sex Ed monster.
While parents work to ensure that their children stay on track with their English, math, and science lessons, SIECUS says they should also be prioritizing their kids’ sex education. “Let’s be real,” writes SIECUS, “Not too many children grow up to use algebra in their daily adult lives. But they will certainly apply the knowledge and skills they (should) learn through sex ed.”
Undeterred by the global pandemic, SIECUS, along with Advocates for Youth, AMAZE, and Planned Parenthood, are fighting hard to get Comprehensive Sex Ed into homes in order to advance their agenda of sweeping and uncompromising social change.
“Need some homeschool-style sex ed resources? We got you!” SIECUS exclaims!
Another recommended resource is the Growing Into You Puberty Workshop, which is designed for tweens “of all gender identities” between the ages of 8-12. This workshop is an online format via Zoom.
And of course, SIECUS recommends AMAZE.org where kids can watch colorfully animated videos to learn about their sexual and reproductive rights. Don’t miss this video which promotes Planned Parenthood and tells children how they can access birth control and abortions without their parents’ knowledge: Accessing Sexual Health Care for Minors https://youtu.be/VMhHx-9zwD8 .
Perhaps you’ve heard of Scarleteen, https://www.scarleteen.com/ , a popular go-to website for teens which presents every imaginable sexual behavior as harmless. It’s on the recommended resource list.
Some resources for parents include Sex Positive Families, which provides parents and caring adults with the “education, resources, and support they need to raise sexually healthy children using a shame-free, comprehensive, and pleasure-positive approach.”
And of course, AMAZE for parents: https://amaze.org/parents/ .
The “10 Best Sex Ed Resources for Families” links to https://sexpositivefamilies.com/ where you can watch videos like this one: https://youtu.be/WknicADMPg8 and learn about “Roo,” Planned Parenthood’s app for kids. Based on actual questions teens ask, this interactive app https://www.plannedparenthood.org/learn/roo-sexual-health-chatbot is a free and confidential chat bot which can answer questions about sexuality, identity, abortion, and more. The Roo app “breaks the taboo” around sexual health, ensuring “no topic is too awkward or embarrassing.”
Resources for educators include Sex-Ed School – Let’s talk about sex education!, https://sexedschool.ca/ which has a library of videos like
Episode 8: “Love is Love,” in which children learn about “self-love,” AKA masturbation. There are also videos here about consent, gender expression, and sexual orientation.
Are you wondering why SIECUS, Advocates for Youth, and AMAZE want to expose kids to graphic sexuality and push so hard to get kids to subscribe to radical ideas? You’ll find the answer in the general reading section, which includes this article: https://www.rewire.org/sexual-health-educators-activism-online/ Why These Sexual Health Educators Took Their Activism Online | Rewire. It’s eye opening.
Not to be outdone, Advocates for Youth has launched “At-Home Activism: Going the (Social) Distance for Sexual Health & Rights.” Kids can connect with “youth activists” around the country during this month-long series. Programs include everything from trivia games and virtual movie nights, to “youth activists” teaching about reproductive justice & op-ed writing: “This is meant to be the youth-focused sexual health & rights extracurricular you always wanted.” Advocates for Youth is also pushing their notorious “3 Rs” CSE program online.
