Parent Gives Fiery Speech Against Unsolicited Sex Ed For Young Kids (WATCH)
An enraged mother in Bloomington, Illinois, recently came out against school standards that require children to learn about masturbation, anal sex, and transgenderism before they reach teenage years.
According to WRPW, a conservative radio station in central Illinois, Becky Swan, a parent and alumni of District 87, spoke out against the sexualization of young children during a school board meeting last week.
Swan made the comments in reference to S.B. 0818, a new measure that requires schools teaching sex education in the state to follow the National Sex Education Standards. The measure has now cleared both houses of the Illinois legislature and is awaiting Governor J.B. Pritzker’s signature.
The law is a “unfunded mandate that destroys local control over curriculum” and “sexually grooms young children by introducing sensitive and inappropriate topics.” according to Swan.
Swan slammed the measure at the board hearing, accusing it of taking away parental educational control, exposing children to sexually explicit information, and indoctrinating them with transgender ideology.
Students in kindergarten through second grade are required to “list medically accurate names for body parts, including the genitals” and “define gender, gender identity, and gender-role stereotypes.” according to an example from the NSES.
The expectation increases for students in grades 3-5, who must “explain common human sexual development and the role of hormones (e.g., romantic and sexual feelings, masturbation, mood swings, timing of pubertal onset).”
These children are also taught that “gender expression and gender identity exist along a spectrum” and are expected to be able to “distinguish between sex assigned at birth and gender identity” as well as “describe the role hormones play in the physical, social, cognitive, and emotional changes during adolescence and the potential role of hormone blockers on young people who identify as transgender.”
By the sixth and eighth grades, students are expected to be able to “define vaginal, oral, and anal sex” and they are flooded with knowledge on the role of drugs in “sexual decision-making” and the specifics of sexually transmitted diseases.Swan, on the other hand, was not yet done.
She went off on the district superintendent, Barry Reilly, for trying to cut her off and rejecting her concerns at a prior meeting before her time ran out.
Swan, who was holding a book that was presumably used in Illinois schools’ sex education curriculum, said that if the subject was too delicate for discussion at a board meeting, it was certainly too sensitive to be taught to young children.
“It’s Perfectly Normal: Changing Bodies, Growing Up, Sex, and Sexual Health,” has already sparked outrage and controversy. Illustrated portrayals of nude teenagers and adults, sexual intercourse, various kinds of birth control, homosexuality, and masturbation are among the themes explored.
The book, which is still extensively utilized in public school sex education programs, was routinely prohibited beginning in 2014 due to its sexual nature.
