CA Education Board Approves ‘Pornographic’ Sex Ed

‘Now we are teaching kids how to have a robust sex life.’

By Katy Grimes, May 9, 2019 7:25 am

Despite hundreds of parents protesting and testifying, on Wednesday the California State Board of Education approved highly controversial changes to the state’s health and sex education framework including teaching children about bondage, anal sex, pederasty, sex trafficking, sexual orientation and transgender and non-conforming students.

“How are they helping kids find themselves when they are confusing them about who they are, or they could possibly be nothing at all,” said Stephanie Yates, founder of Informed Parents of California.

What is being taught as sex ed to California school children ironically cannot be spoken on television or radio.

The curriculum changes stem from the 2015 Healthy Youth Act (AB 329) by Assemblywoman Shirley Weber, which was sold as “updating the HIV and AIDS prevention education to reflect today’s understanding of HIV and AIDS.”

The bill also made comprehensive sexual health education mandatory. “Current law does not mandate sexual health education, but places requirements on instruction that is voluntarily provided to students. While this instruction is voluntary, research has shown that nearly all (96%) school districts offer a program of sexual health education. In contrast, HIV/AIDS prevention education has been mandated since 1992,” bill analysis said. The bill was passed along party lines, and signed into law by Gov. Jerry Brown.

However, the “voluntary” instruction is not how this is playing out, according to parents, and Jonathan Keller, President of the California Family Council. “Parents did not sign up for this type of sexual indoctrination,” said Keller. “The state of California should not force moms and dads to chose between participating in public school and protecting their children’s innocence. No student needs to be exposed to this graphic and explicit material. It’s child abuse.”

The California Family Council reported:

Parents and leaders of the Informed Parents of California have problems with large portions of the 1000+ page Health Education Framework, which guides curriculum development for the next decade, they highlighted four recommended books to show how offensive, reckless, and immoral the framework is. The links below provide book excerpts to these recommended books. (Be forewarned. Some of the curriculum is very sexual explicit.)

The Sacramento Bee reported:

One book, titled “Changing You,” which was recommended for removal, shows cartoon illustrations of male and female genitals to educate students on the terminology. It also explains what “having sex is.” The book was recommended for transitional kindergarten through third grade.

“There are all kinds of alternatives, but they want to teach sex ed with the guise that they were trying to prevent sexual transmitted diseases and prevent teen pregnancy,” said Greg Burt, director of California Family Council. “Now we are teaching kids how to have a robust sex life. Not everything under the sun needs to be taught to our kids, with no moral judgment.”

Legislative attempts to offer parents opt in or out out options have failed. Sen. Mike Morrell (R-Riverside) introduced a bill to have school districts offering sex ed in elementary school require parents to make a formal request, or opt in, to have their children be given the instruction. He withdrew the bill after it became clear it didn’t have the votes to pass the Senate Education Committee, EdSource reported.

Informed Parents of California pulled together the most objectionable portions of the 1000 page framework document in a 24 page summary with excerpts for K-6th grade health lessons, complete with pictures of some of the recommended supplemental materials, included in a California Globe article.

This curriculum also includes:

  • Kindergarten books that introduce 5-year-olds to families with members who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender.
  • First grade gender vocabulary lessons on words such as third gender, trans, queergender, non-binary, gender fluid, gender neutral, agender, bigender, and two-spirits.
  • Lessons for 1st graders that provide detailed descriptions of sex with these quotes such as: “The man’s penis goes inside the woman’s vagina,” and “sperm can swim out through the small opening in the man’s penis – and into the woman’s vagina.”
  • Pictures in a book for third graders showing a cartoon drawing of a penis ejaculating sperm while inserted into a vagina.
  • Lessons which teach third graders that sexual reproductive organs don’t always match a person’s gender.
  • Recommendations that fifth graders are taught sexual health lessons that must include examples of same-sex sexual activity. Students should not be separated by sex during these lessons to avoid “misgendering” students.
  • Books that introduce 10-year-olds to anal sex, and the slang for male and female genitals.

Parents warn that if the state continues to push this sexualized curriculum on their kids without opt out options, they will pull their children out of school in protest, causing schools to lose the “Average Daily Attendance.” The state of California funds school districts based on each student’s daily-recorded attendance.

  1. Okay, it’s enough already, you creepy perverts. You’re determined to corrupt and abuse children, aren’t you? I know, I know, you’re thoroughly corrupted and miserable yourselves and have no one but yourselves to blame for it, thus you want everyone else to be corrupted and miserable too, don’t you? These children are supposed to be in your care, you’re supposed to be protecting them; do you feel any sense of responsibility about that? Guess not. And you force teachers to teach this garbage too, and the more they don’t want to the more you like it.

    At least The Globe is covering it, thank goodness. And PressCalifornia.com posted about it yesterday. So the word is getting out about this unacceptable stuff, and people are NOT going to like it when they learn about it. Who would?

    I hope and pray that parents will remove their kids from the CA public school cesspool en masse ASAP. Starve the beast. They will likely change their tune when they lose huge chunks of their Average Daily Attendance $$$$. Because lots and lots of money is one of the few things on earth they care about.

    1. Please count me in. I am an agnostic by default and yet a strong defender of Christian values because they are the bulwark against the decadent sickness of public school educators who worked themselves into the bureaucracy where mediocre minds without the spirit of self reliance and enterprise find jobs. Mediocre minds are liberals, who live bring influencers (I might be one after all) have none of the value system that made this country powerful and great. It is a DNA thing as if they are from a different planet but it is also an acquired deficiency. I didn’t use to swear but by association I do. Every Netflix movie is now required to use the word F*ck profusely, show sex between two people of the same sex, show proclaimed minorities in position of power (lawyer, judge, HR boss etc), lead detective has to be a woman (get more viewership) and if possible there should be a jab at Pres. Trump. Will he be replaced by revolutionary strident idiot like AOC? Their first would be to open up FEMA camps for the opposition. History repeats itself. Mediocre minds want power too. Her IQ and qualifications are in the same average or lower league as Obama (IQ:118 vs Bush 137). But where an approved politician lacks, it is promptly made up by press lies of unearned glorification.

  2. Thank you Kathy for covering the true story of what is happening in CA. I children need more reporters like yourself to sound the alarms of state sanctioned child sexual abuse, institutionalized grooming and SOGI indoctrination.

    1. Thank you Stephanie Yates for founding Informed Parents of California. I know I’m not alone in gratitude for fine organizations like yours. Thankful also for the California Family Council.
      Also appreciate Katy Grimes so much. She faithfully covers the important but under-reported stories in California. There are a lot of those!

  3. I’m against all these changes .and I think teach kids about sex and earlier age is a big mistake.

  4. 🔴I’m against all these changes for a teaching kids about sex in earlier age. In the future there will be no kids any more.
    From baby to adult.
    Please don’t do that.

  5. We are opening the door to children being inappropriate with other children, we are going to be having lots of lawsuits over things that kids are going to be experiencing with other kids. Thanks to the garbage that the school system is implementing. What do they think? That kids are just going to let them teach that stupidity and not be curious?

  6. I can’t believe this!!! My son is getting ready to start kindergarten and I’m just now learning about the “ sex Es” and I’m discussed! This is NOT okay. We as parents should have the right to teach our child or children about sex the difference between men and women. I am a Christian and we believe same sex relationships are wrong however we don’t hate by any means. Nor do we try to change anyone. People are who they are and believe what they want. But the schools should NOT be having any kind of conversation with my child about same sex sex that Isent okay. Nor confusing them if they are a boy or girl when we teach our children there sex at home and church. We raise them a certain way then the government comes along and wants to confuse them and add more issues! We have enough people committing suicide, being bullied, and having issues with weight why add more! Let’s focus on important topics. Like how to eat healthy and exercise how to talk appropriately instead of cussing and bulling other children! Why not teach them to want to be someone like have firemen come to school and police officers lawyers nurses doctors encourage them to want to be someone in life! Instead of being ghetto or a rapper or gangster or drug dealer!
    I have lived in the same town my entire life and over the last 32 years it’s gotten worse. There are so many homeless and young men in gangs people getting robbed stores getting broken into Lets educate our children about that! Why do we have to enforce something that NO ONe agrees on. I don’t know any parent that thinks this LAW is ok! Not one! So how dare the government make this change without our ok! There our children!
    If there is any kind of walk out of school or meeting we can attend someone please notify me! I will be there!
    No wonder why everyone is moving out of California. This state is going down hill so bad it’s so sad. We used to be where everyone wanted to be we used to be a stage that everyone looked up to now look at us. This is sad!

    1. I agree with you that it is our right and duty to raise our children the way we see fit. This garbage is unacceptable. My husband and I are also Christians. When our children were school age we decided that our Christian values were important and our children education was so important that we refinanced our house so that we could send our children to a private christian school. My oldest son is almost 42yrs old and our youngest is almost 34 yrs old and we have only 2 more house payments left to go from our refinance of our house. We sent 3 kids to private school which was 22 yrs from the first one to the last one to graduate high school. We believed and still do that private school was and investment in their future. So many people would ask us why we would spend so much money on private school in stead of public school which our taxes paid for. We were considered low income for our family of 6 but that didn’t matter because our children’s education was more important than going on vacation or having stuff. We never had a vacation or bought a new car or anything. We have now been married for almost 48 yrs and are finally getting our house paid off. Six of us lived in a 2 bedroom 1 bath house but we made it work because of our priorities. Boycott this filth they are trying to teach your kids. Make a lot of noise. Be a leader if you have to. My opinion.

  7. If you bother to follow the link, you’ll see that All the books mentioned were actually cited because they had been REMOVED from the curriculum. This “reporting” is just inflammatory BS. Learn to do your own research, especially when something strikes a nerve right out of the gate.

    “On May 8, 2019, the State Board of Education took action to adopt the Health Education Framework with the revisions of removing the following resources:

    My Princess Boy
    Who Are You?: The Kids Guide to Gender Identity
    Changing You!: A Guide to Body Changes and Sexuality
    The What’s Happening to My Body?: Book for Boys
    The What’s Happening to My Body?: Book for Girls
    S.E.X: The All You Need to Know Sexuality Guide to Get You Through Your Teens and Twenties”

    1. The four books removed were overshadowed by new guidelines textbook publishers will use over the next decade to create curriculum just like the books the board removed. And despite the removal of some of the offensive books, the framework still includes recommended books with similar content. Here are a few examples:

      Sex, Puberty, and All That Stuff: A Guide to Growing Up (2014) by Jacqui Bailey. This book is for 4-6 graders provides instructions on how to masturbate, teaching on erogenous zones and how kids who french kiss also touch each other’s genitals.
      2. It’s Not the Stork!: A Book About Girls, Boys, Babies, Bodies, Families and Friends (2008) by Robie Harris The framework encourages teachers to have their first grade students “write short reports” about this book, which introduces kids to the clitoris in print and in pictures, as well as details descriptions of sex.
      3. Sex is a Funny Word: A Book about Bodies, Feelings, and YOU by Cory Silverberg (2015). The framework says this 4-6 grade book can be used by teachers to “initiate dialogue for the group chats.” This book covers how great masturbation feels and what it means to be queer, asexual, bisexual, etc.

    2. They will push to have them come back , believe me . These books were written without ANY parental imput . They were
      written with a great deal of imput by groups like Glaad, Glysen , as well as Planned Parenthood and the basically Marxist
      ACLU .

      This is outrageous . Write or email the Department of Education Board members . Their addresses are on the
      California Board of Education website . Kindergarten through fourth grade ? This is indoctrination , not teaching .

  8. Very misleading article.

    Not mandatory. Not showing pornography. All the books mentioned above were removed from the guidance.

    Here is a more level-headed account of what actually happened. This is poroviding GUIDANCE for teachers, not hard cirriculum. It discusses how a teacher should deal with kids coming out to them and many other things that may happen in a classroom when sex-ed is taught.

    It’s a shame Ms Grimes decided to do the knitting-circle, create drama version of this article to scare conservative parents.

      1. Can someone please provide the link (not another article) to the official State of CA department. where this can be found. I don’t believe things like this unless I have a legit source to follow up with. Thank you.

  9. This kind of behavior is exactly what I do not want my kids to learn. It takes a very sick individual to use a child, it takes an even sicker individual to try and use their educational needs as a crutch in order to use the child.
    Consider this happening outside of a school enviornment.
    A stranger walked up to your children and decided to show them pornographic photos, questioned their knowledge of sexual intercourse, discussed masturbation, gender orientation, sexual terminology, sexual slang terminology, described the act of sex in detail. (Along with anything I may have missed here.) Their excuse being they felt the need to “educate” YOUR child(ren) and is not concerned wether you approve or not.

    What is your reaction?

    If it is anything less than immediately removing
    your child(ren) from contact with this perverted pedophile, by whatever means necessary then you are neglectful to your childrens well-being. You allowing someone like this around your children is the same as being this kind of person yourself. These are the people we as parents are obligated to protect our kids from.
    Disguising inappropriate behavior disguised as education does not make it any less inappropriate. It is a childish act of justification and a poor attempt at that.

    Example:
    “I didn’t steal the cookie, I knowingly took it without permission because I feel like you don’t need more sugar.”
    (Same thing as)
    “We aren’t providing inappropriate sexual material and information to your kids. No, we are educating them “using” inappropriate sexual material and information because its what we decided its best for them to learn it now.

    This is a lewd & innapropriate act with a minor. A lot of minors. If I find out that my kids are being introduced to this by a teacher or anyone else you can rest assured I will be in that office removing my kids from class, and I will also address it for what it is. An adult is presenting my child with porn and teaching them about sexual conduct.

    Imagine what my reaction will be. Then multiply that reaction by the total number of legal gaurdians each student has.

    What the hell are you trying to accomplish with this. Future porn stars, prostitutes, perversions sexual assaults/harrassment concerns, teen pregnancy, or looking to raise the population of registered sex offenders? What the hell is wrong with “YOU PEOPLE?” Come near my kids with this garbage and I will ensure you will be dealing with sex crime charges, (Legal, Parental, or both) while I will be dealing with assault charges. This is not your place to teach this and I suggest you learn where the lines are drawn so you dont cross them again. You all need help. The fact this was suggested at all is unbelievable, but passing it through without notice or opt out options to the parents, tell your mothers what your doing without feeling ashamed of yourselves…

    Thats what I thought….

  10. I am really proud California is adopting such comprehensive sex education. Children experience sexual abuse too and not having a space to talk about it or even know what it is makes it easier for perpetrators to perpetrate against them. By not teaching them about their bodies and what is safe/unsafe touch, it makes them way more vulnerable to predatory people.

    Also the average age a child is exposed to pornographic content is age 11 with some studies indicating it can be as low as 9. I would want my child to hear about sex from a trained adult instead of being exposed to content online or from their peers.

    It’s sad we live in a world where people molest and rape children and that pornography is so readily available at a young age. So I choose to protect my children through education and open and honest dialogue. I’m am excited to be able to have conversations with my child about what they learned at school and be able to add to the already wonderful education they are going to be learning.

    1. You’re the most pathetic cluster of body parts I’ve ever come across. Want them to learn about something so personal from anyone other than a parent? You are lazy, ignorant, sick, and completely disgusting. I hope your children see that before becoming the creep that masturbates in class after trying to fist girls on the playground. Go to hell. Stop encouraging things that create hell on earth.
