Orange County Board of Education: Parents can’t pull kids from new sex ed classes

School board's lawyer says “parents do not have a constitutional right to excuse their children from portions of the school curriculum that they find objectionable”

California is about to implement new abortion- and homosexuality-promoting sex education lessons, and one school district has told parents they have no choice but to expose their children to them.

California enacted the California Healthy Youth Act in 2015, but only now are its controversial provisions starting to take effect in classrooms. Under the auspices of health, the law says it will equip students to develop “healthy attitudes” on “gender [and] sexual orientation,” among other things.

RedState contributor Kira Davis, a resident of Orange County, California, warns that among the teaching materials approved for use under this law are a study guide for the transgender children’s book I Am Jazz, as well as a “sexual health toolkit.”

This “toolkit,” funded in part by the George Soros-connected Tides Center, offers kids tips on using sex toys and anal lubricant. It defines “anal intercourse,” “phone sex,” and more as “common sexual behaviors.” It teaches that “abstinence” and “virginity” can mean engaging in a variety of sexual activities, but stopping short of intercourse.

“What if you don’t have time or money to buy sex toys?” the guide asks on page C-51. “Cucumbers, carrots, and bananas (with the peel) make great dildos. Just remember to use a condom!”

It teaches that one of the “cons” of abstaining from all sexual activity is that it “requires motivation, self-control and communication from both partners.” 

The “toolkit” lists as resources Planned Parenthood and the radically pro-homosexual and pro-abortion group Advocates for Youth.

The law also mandates that lessons and materials “affirmatively recognize” varying sexual orientations, and that they “be inclusive of same-sex relationships.” Instruction must take a positive view of gender confusion, and explore “the harm of negative gender stereotypes.”

In a memo dated March 29 to the Orange County Board of Education, Orange County Department of Education general counsel Ronald Wenkart says that the California Healthy Youth Act’s opt-out provision “does not apply to instruction, materials, or programming that discusses gender, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, discrimination, harassment, bullying, intimidation, relationships, or family and does not discuss human reproductive organs.”

Parents who disagree with the state’s LGBT positions “may not excuse their children from this instruction,” Wenkart continues. He then suggests that parents still having the right to “advise their children that they disagree with” such lessons compensates for this restriction.

  1. Evil lying administrators! Parents are obligated to keep their children safe from trash like this. Oh yes, there will be lawsuits and threats to have children removed from their homes but mama and papa bears will fight back. These gov’t hacks will climb back to their hellish swamp when challenged.

    • Yes, Kristin, they are liable to feel the claws of the California pro life bear, or the claws of the Great Lion of God St. Paul, or be trampled by the pro life elephant. Christians and all good people arise and save your children. East Indians you forbade fake marriages in your country, arise and forbid them here.

    • Dianne Quiroz says:

      This is designated to protect our children. You people need to stop being so closed minded.

  2. Anonymous says:

    Will Bishop Vann say anything?

  3. Before Christ Jews were polygamous. Christianity brought women to monogamy and equal status, and was revolutionary. Soros and the Commies strike at the heart of Catholicism by dissolving the nuclear family. They already destroyed the African-American family and now come for yours.

    • And before the Nazis killed the Jews, they killed their own Aryan People who had Downs Syndrome, etc., to produce the so-called “master race.” History is repeating itself.

  4. Elizabeth M. says:

    Where are the Bishops? They have a lot to say about the border but why are they not preaching from the pulpit? This is pure evil. Corrupt the minds of the young. These so called experts feel that children should be exposed to this trash. God help us.

  5. This is another reason why I no longer vote for propositions for loans for public schools. They want a monopoly, so they can rule over us and tell us how to think and what to do, Also, in the past, many of our elderly were taxed out of their homes before proposition 13 was passed. Most of the money does not go into the classrooms or to teachers anyway, but to administration.

  6. That lawyer needs to go back to chasing ambulances for a living. He has the legal acumen of a garden snake…

  7. ENOUGH parents need to pull their kids out. Not for just one day, either. Parents don’t seem to realize the indoctrination is infused through out all subjects.

  8. Figure out how to get these termites on the BoE fired, and do away with them!

  9. They themselves act like animals.

  10. Joel Fago says:

    Children are forced to be indoctrinated with immorality–another descent into the darkness.

  11. Linda Maria says:

    America’s public schools and higher education institutions are destroying this Nation. This has been accelerating since the 1960s. An extremely immoral, and poorly-educated Nation will not survive— it will eventually collapse.

  12. Michael McDermott says:

    We need more Than Disgust – We Need to Take Over Teaching and Do it Right!

    This Requires Good People – Willing to Do Good, even at the Personal Cost the GILBERT Gaystapo seeks to make unbearable.

    I am up for the challenge – who else is willing to join?
