LGBT Rights ‘Research’ Says 78% Parents Support LGBT-Inclusive Sex Ed in Middle School

Sex Ed

A study conducted, promoted, and cited by Planned Parenthood and LGBT-rights groups says 78 percent of parents surveyed think LGBT-inclusive sex should be addressed in middle-school sex ed programs while 85 percent of parents say it should be included in high school sex education.

According to the progressive Sexuality Information and Education Council of the U.S. (SIECUS), research conducted “by Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA) and the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) Foundation,” found that LGBTQ youth complained that sex education in public schools has been focused primarily on sex “between cisgender people (people whose gender identity matches their sex assigned at birth), and pregnancy prevention within those relationships.”

“Sex education ought to help close this gap,” the study states. “Both public health organizations and the vast majority of parents agree and support LGBTQ-inclusive sex education. Eighty-five percent of parents surveyed supported discussion of sexual orientation as part of sex education in high school and 78 percent supported it in middle school.”

On Monday, parents in cities throughout the United States – as well as in the U.K., Canada, and Australia – pulled their children out of school in a Sex Ed Sit Out protest of what they view as “pornographic” sex education in public schools that forces gender ideology on children with graphic images and descriptions of oral and anal sex and masturbation.

Sex Ed Sit Out organizer Elizabeth Johnston – the “Activist Mommy” – told Breitbart News she and other moms are “disgusted by the evidence we were seeing on social media of graphic sex ed in the schools and the stories about gender transition parties and teaching kids to question their gender.”

The LGBT-rights groups conducting the research, in fact, made recommendations for sex education such as:

  • Include depictions of LGBTQ people and same-sex relationships in a positive light in stories and role-plays
  • Use gender-neutral terms such as “they/them” and “partner” whenever possible
  • Ensure that prevention messages related to condom and birth control use are not relayed in a way that suggests only heterosexual youth or cisgender male/female couples need to be concerned about unintended pregnancy and STI prevention

“Comprehensive sex education delivered in schools from kindergarten through 12th grade is the best way to provide truly LGBTQ-inclusive sex education and ensure positive sexual health outcomes for all youth,” the groups state, adding that information about “sexual orientation and gender identity as a part of human development” teaches respect for LGBTQ people.

On Friday, the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network(GLSEN) is conducting its annual “Day of Silence,” which the organization describes as “a student-led national event where folks take a vow of silence to highlight the silencing and erasure of LGBTQ people at school.”

“K-12 students and educators should register their participation,” states GLSEN:

Among the resources GLSEN provides is “free streaming of LGBTQ-inclusive classroom documentaries.”

GLSEN was founded by gay activist and former Obama administration “Safe Schools Czar” Kevin Jennings. The organization’s website provides K-12 “educator resources” that include an “LGBT-inclusive curriculum” and lesson plans on topics such as how to celebrate “LGBT History Month” in classrooms and “ThinkB4YouSpeak,” a guide to LGBT politically correct language.

Planned Parenthood’s Get Real program is a Comprehensive Sex Education (CSE) curriculum that assumes all young people will be sexually active. In addition to teaching children about contraception and abortion, the program focuses on LGBTQ issues and terminology.

In Grade 7 of the Get Real program, for example, students discuss sexual identity and “examine the myths and facts about sexual orientation.” They also learn how to use a condom and review the use of hormonal contraception, including emergency contraception after sexual intercourse.
