- "LEARNING OBJECTIVES: [...] By the end of this lesson, students will be able to: Describe the three types of sexual intercourse, including whether/how they are related to human reproduction." [It is later made clear that these three "types" of sexual intercourse are vaginal, oral, and anal.]
- "A NOTE ABOUT LANGUAGE: [...] You may notice language throughout the curriculum that seems less familiar - using the pronoun “they” instead of “her” or “him”, using gender neutral names in scenarios and role-plays and referring to “someone with a vulva” vs. a girl or woman. This is intended to make the curriculum inclusive of all genders and gender identities."
- "Explain to the students that when they get older, they may have a boyfriend or girlfriend. Tell them that when they are in those kinds of relationships there may be different ways they will want to express their affection or love – which may be doing something sexual together."
Say NO to HB 2184 and Comprehensive Sexual Health Education!
I write today to urge you to oppose HB 2184 and the implementation of compulsory “comprehensive sexual health education.”
The lessons that this bill would force into schools’ curricula are not only age-inappropriate, but harmful to vulnerable young people’s sense of reality. Learning to refer to “someone with a vulva” rather than “girls and woman” is demeaning and insulting to women, and warps the truth of basic biology that should be taught in schools. Furthermore, the lessons on sexual expression dangerously sexualize children and could interfere with the morals and values taught to them by their parents, their primary educators, in their own homes.
Our kids should be taught real biology and not ideology. Please vote to oppose this bill.
