Last Tuesday, beyond frustrated parents decided to pull their children from San Diego Unified School District over the school’s continued refusal to replace its sex education curriculum that is completely inappropriate for children.
“The sixth grade curriculum includes lessons on gender identity, birth control, the stages of sex, STDs, HIV and pregnancy. Parents are calling the material “too much, too soon” and age-inappropriate,” according to the Daily Caller.
Parents are saying the sex education curriculum is material written on an adult level and not something that children should be studying. The curriculum also contains a lesson on gender identity and sexual orientation for children as early as sixth grade. In the curriculum that is offered to six graders, students are taught that vaginal sex, anal sex, and oral sex are low risk sexual behaviors as long as condoms are used. No risk behaviors promoted by the sex education curriculum encourage students to bathe together, and solo or mutual masturbation.

In eighth grade, the curriculum is very heavily focused on gender identity and sexual orientation. The first lesson is entitled “Blue Is for Boys, Pink Is for Girls … or Are They?” and is on gender and gender identity. The second lesson is also on sexual orientation and gender identity, and discusses how feelings and actions supposedly shape one’s sexual identity. Students are also taught to avoid certain terminology that is offensive to those with gender dysphoria, and to “red flag” it. In the fifth lesson, students are instructed to compete in a “Jeopardy”-style game in teams to answer STI- and HIV-related questions, and then relate what information they learned from the game. Students are also taught to use various forms of contraception including abortion inducing drugs.
Parents previously rallied in the beginning of March, protesting the San Diego Unified School District’s decisions.
The curriculum also includes a Sexually Transmitted Infections game and male reproductive system crossword puzzle.
“We’re going to ask them to suspend this new curriculum because it’s not a curriculum for the adolescent brain, it’s an adult curriculum,” said mom Angela Beaver.
Nearly 4,000 people have signed an online petition demanding that the San Diego Unified School District pull the sex education curriculum.
