Liberal government in Ontario to introduce more explicit sex education in schools

Story from the left-wing Globe and Mail.

Excerpt:

The days of euphemisms and innuendo in Ontario’s classrooms are numbered, with the province set to roll out a new sex education curriculum next fall built on clear and explicit language that has raised objections from conservative parent groups.

The revision, outlined in 208 pages that were quietly posted on the Ministry of Education’s website in January, will for the first time teach Grade 3 pupils about such topics as sexual identity and orientation, and introduce terms like “anal intercourse” and “vaginal lubrication” to children in Grades 6 and 7. The new curriculum begins in Grade 1 with lessons about the proper names of body parts.

And the response from Liberal party Premier (governor) Dalton McGuinty?

The Premier stood by the curriculum, saying he has confidence in the judgment of school principals and teachers to present the information in a thoughtful and responsible manner. If sex education is not taught in the classroom, he added, students could get information from potentially uninformed sources, such as their friends.

“If we can provide it in a format and in a venue over which we have some control … why wouldn’t we recognize that we live in an information age and why wouldn’t we try to present this information in a thoughtful and responsible and open way,” Mr. McGuinty said.

Yes, if the teachers don’t teach the kids about sex, then the children could hear about it from their know-nothing religious fanatic parents. The horror!

More details:

Some of the most controversial changes are in the Grade 3 curriculum. In a discussion on human development and showing respect for people’s differences, for example, teachers are invited to discuss “invisible differences,” including gender identity and sexual orientation, in an effort to reflect the fact that more and more students have same-sex parents.

[…]In another key change, the topic of puberty will be introduced in Grade 4, a year earlier than in the old curriculum, in recognition of the fact that many children reach puberty at younger ages. The description of physical changes is also more explicit in the new version, including the development of breasts and body hair.

Ontario is the province that also boasts one of the worst Human Rights Commissions, as well as taxpayer-funded in vitro fertilization, abortions and sex changes. The new curriculum has no opt-out mechanism for concerned parents. Ontario parents will pay for the indoctrination of children and their vulnerable children will learn about sex using materials from the extreme left.

  1. “in an effort to reflect the fact that more and more students have same-sex parents.” Ah yes. First, we grant homosexuality equality status, assured that it will change nothing. Once it’s in, it is the justification for changing everything.

  2. I’m here and my son is in first grade in a Catholic School next year. I have a call into the school board and I will fight tooth and nail to make sure this government doesn’t sexualize my child. Actually on the phone now with someone.

    1. It’s good, but what about all the other children who will be taking this stuff in uncritically? Your child has to live among them. That’s what worries me about the way these education bureaucrats think. I can protect my child, but the laws are made by the majority, and the majority is going to be trained by the schools. My child will will have to live by those laws.

  3. May 10th, a group is arranging for parents to keep their kids out of school on that day as a protest. What I can do now is work with my school and school board. Then, I can work province wide, by presenting a reasoned and, for lack of a better word, loud protest.

    Also, yes, my child has to live in the world at large, but at least I can teach him values and self control before they get their claws on him. He won’t be alone, either.

    1. I think Christians need to get serious about marrying people who are sensitive to these problems, who take them seriously, and who are willing to fight to protect their family from the tax man and the secular-leftist teachers. It takes two parents to protect the children from threats like these. What a headache. And to think you are being forced to pay these people to do this to you and your family.

        Thank heaven my son is in a Catholic school, even though we’re Protestant.

        The woman I spoke with on the phone danced around the issue a bit. I’m looking through information she sent me before I write out a response.

        So far, the closest answer I get is that they follow a program called “Fully Alive” that looks like a decent program, and that although they are subject to this power grab from the Ontario Government, they will not teach it “like it’s being presented”, but in a Biblical Family orientated way. I asked what the family orientated way to teach a 12 year old about anal sex is and the told me she would send me the “Fully Alive” program information. More to come.
