Sex Education in Public Schools: Sexualization of Children and LGBT IndoctrinationBy Cathy Ruse Senior Fellow and Director of Human Dignity
**DISCLAIMER: This brochure includes some graphic descriptions of sex education class content.
Not so long ago, sex education in public schools involved a couple of uncomfortable hours looking at simple line drawings showing human growth and development and listening to advice on how to be careful, respect others, and save sex for marriage.
Things are very different today. The "facts of life" have not changed, but "inclusivity" and "sex positivity" and other popular buzz-word concepts have changed sex education.
Despite studies showing that modern sex education fails to achieve its stated goals and results in increased student sexual activity, school systems are devoting up to 70 hours of classroom time per child to sex education.
Well-funded international pressure groups have been extraordinarily successful in pushing what they call "Comprehensive Sexuality Education" (CSE) into American public schools, an agenda-driven curriculum that sexualizes children. In CSE, youth sex is normalized, and the concept of "sexual rights" and radical sexual ideology for youth is advanced.
Education has given way to indoctrination. Consider the emergence of no-opt-out laws and policies that revoke the right of parents to opt their children out of sexuality-based lessons in some states.
Parents have two main concerns about sex ed today: That it sexualizes children and that it is loaded with LGBTQ indoctrination. This pamphlet will reveal troubling examples of each problem, will discuss the powerful organizations behind it all, and then will offer some action steps for parents to consider in their fight to protect the health and innocence of their children.
