Comprehensive Sex Ed: Total Waste of Our Money!

Featured

By Mary S McLellan, SRAS (Sexual Risk Avoidance Specialist)

Do you ever wonder why our culture is more sexualized and pornified than eight years ago?

Nearly a BILLION DOLLAR$ of our money was funneled to Comprehensive Sexuality Education under the Obama administration. 


Comprehensive Sexuality Education is not about science, biology, or reproduction. It is about teaching minor children the pleasures of sex, Sexual Rights, and that sexual risks are no big deal. 

Most so-called Comprehensive Sexuality Education downplays STDs and solves every pregnancy with abortion. It is total indoctrination into a hedonistic lifestyle. Maybe that’s why condom use has flat-lined for twenty-years! (CDC YRBS)

Using terms like “medically accurate” and “age appropriate” are red flags when defined by Planned Parenthood, Advocates For Youth, or Obama’s complicit media. 

Today’s “Comprehensive” Sexuality Education leaves out the many benefits of and skills needed to delay sex until one is educated, self-sufficient, and ready to form a healthy family. That’s not comprehensive enough for most parents and grandparents, who want only quality education for their children. 

We need to defund Obama’s Sexual Rights Agenda so that America’s children can thrive and enjoy the freedoms they deserve.

RECALL: “Making A Difference!”

Featured

by Mary S. McLellan, MS, SRAS ~ Sexual Risk Avoidance Specialist

massive-recall-for-takata-airbags1-791x445 Would you let your child’s life depend on an unreliable product that claims to only Reduce the Risks of harm? READ the research on “Making A Difference!” before you allow your child to take this course in middle school.

 

Back in 1998, the research design for “Making A Difference!” was considered strong and still, those results from a single study showed that the program only delayed sex for 3 months, in a small sample of 11-13 year old African American urban students, who – had NOT had sex.

However, at the 6 and 12 month evaluation, there was no impact on sexual initiation, sex, condom use, or unprotected sex. NO IMPACT!

“The study found that three months after the program ended, adolescents participating in the intervention who were sexually inexperienced at baseline were significantly less likely to report having had sexual intercourse in the previous 3 months. The study did not find any statistically significant program impacts on rates of sexual intercourse for adolescents who were sexually experienced at baseline, or on frequency of sexual intercourse, condom use, or unprotected sexual intercourse for the full sample. The study found no statistically significant program impacts for the follow-ups conducted six and 12 months after the program ended.”

This 18 year old program had only been evaluated ONCE; there were no replication studies to show that the same thing could happen again. (This is shoddy research.) Why was it deemed an Evidence-based Teen Pregnancy Prevention Program and put on the US Health and Human Services’ and CDC’s list to push in public schools?

“Making A Difference!” has been promoted in public schools for eighteen years!

“Making A Difference!” has NEVER been officially evaluated in a school setting, but only in after-school and community settings (poor inner city minorities.) YET, it is widely used to teach all minors in school settings. Again, shoddy research and application!

“Making A Difference!” is touted as an “abstinence education program,” but uses the term “abstinence-approach” to fool school districts into thinking they have a proven effective abstinence education program.

An authentic Evidence-based Abstinence/Sexual Risk Avoidance Education program sets clear boundaries to avoid all sexual activity. Boundaries such as commitment, monogamy, and marriage. However, “Making A Difference!” does not set boundaries for how long the minor child is to delay sex. They teach…When you feel ready for sex. That could be today – right after school, this weekend, prom night, etc.

“”Making A Difference!” is an Abstinence Approach to Prevention of STDs, HIV and Teen Pregnancy is an eight module curriculum that provides young adolescents with the knowledge, confidence, and skills necessary to reduce their risk of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), HIV, and pregnancy by abstaining from sex. The curriculum is designed for middle school youth and is delivered by trained facilitators.”

“Making A Difference” is written by the Jemmotts, the same authors who wrote “Making Proud Choices!” and “Be Proud! Be Responsible.” They used a Sexual Risk Reduction approach, rather than a Sexual Risk Avoidance approach. Several of the Jemmott sex programs are advocated by Planned Parenthood, SIECUS, and other Sexual Rights Groups.

Sexual Risk Reduction means that as long as “protection” is used (condoms, birth control, alternative sex) then sex can be safe. Really? Is this what minors, who legally cannot consent to sex, need to hear? How has that been working for us over the past 20 years?

Is Marriage Still Legal in the U.S.?

Featured

by Mary S. McLellan, MS, SRAS – Sexual Risk Avoidance Specialist

married-familyI thought marriage was still legal in the U.S. It seems the only kind of marriage that is legal and talked about anymore is Same Sex Marriage. What about Heterosexual Marriage? You know, the kind that has been proven the best method of family formation for children and adults for centuries?

Did you know that Heterophobia is a thing? It is the “fear of straight people.” The dictionary states that “it is an irrational fear of, aversion to, or discrimination against heterosexual people.”

In many states, marriage was taken out of Health Education Standards eight years ago. Is it any wonder that kids grow up thinking that relationships and heterosexual marriage don’t matter? That it is normal and expected for them to have serial sexual relationships and babies by different parents throughout their lives?

Aren’t you sick of all the phobias? Following the Golden Rule would solve a lot of civility issues in our culture.

What about the children? Finally, someone cuts through the noise and focuses on the rights of children. Margaret Somerville, a professor of Bioethics in the School of Medicine at The University of Notre Dame Australia, writes in It’s about children’s rights, not sexual orientation,

“But when, as in same-sex marriage, we are faced with a conflict between children’s rights and adults’ claims, ethically we should choose in favour of the weakest, most in need, most vulnerable persons. That means choosing what is best for children.”

If this is true, why is it that traditional Heterosexual Marriage cannot be discussed in public schools? If children fare best on all social indicators when raised by their own two marriage biological parents, then why not teach about heterosexual marriage in Health Classes or Sex Ed? Why is it censored?

Is it any wonder that the U.S. ranks as a third world country on many social indicators?

We need to get back to the basics of building strong families. Jobs, civility, and national security matter, but the U.S. is fundamentally broken because of a disregard for marriage.

Heterosexual Marriage, that is.

Parents, Time to Opt-Out?

Featured

While many parents are glad that their kids are back in school, they worry about what their kids will learn.  Will their kids excel in academics and sports? Or, will the Sexual Rights Agenda convince their little girls to become boys?

This year, many states and their school districts across the nation have caved to the US/Planned Parenthood/LGBTQ demands for explicit Sex Ed in all grades. Even Kindergarten students will be taught that gender is fluid and that they can begin the lifelong medical process of transitioning to the opposite gender than they were born. Students will learn that sex is just like brushing teeth; if minors want to engage in sexual activity, they can and should. Sex is a Human Right.

What’s a parent to do?

Find out quickly if your school’s administration pushes the Sexual Rights Agenda. Don’t ignore this. Don’t procrastinate. You must parent your child on sexual issues, or someone else will!

Find Out Your State Law for Sexuality Education Content

What is required in your state or school district? Unfortunately, the information from the US Department of Education is psycho-babble and of little help to parents. For example, Safe Schools – Healthy Schools Initiatives sound really great until one finds out that they are obsessed with promoting sexual deviancy and normalizing sex.

Each state has a Sex Ed Law that should govern what can and cannot be taught in publicly funded education. Often, the Law and the policies conflict, because SexPerts in the system subvert the Law. Find out what the Law is and compare it to your school district’s policies. Law should take precedence over policies.

The best source for information about the LGBTQ/Sex Ed Agenda is found on their advocates’ own websites. LGBTQ/Sex Ed advocates work nonstop to overturn Laws and policies at every level of government and they are very proud of their success. Guttmacher Institute promotes “research” to only support explicit sexuality content aimed at your child. SIECUS (Sexuality Information Education Council of the US) promotes sexually explicit Sex Ed programs and the LGBTQ lifestyle to school districts under the guise of anti-bullying. Both Guttmacher and SIECUS are spinoffs of Planned Parenthood, the largest purveyor of LGBTQ/Sex Ed in the nation. Hundreds of other surrogates may be found at the National Coalition to Support Sexuality Education.

Promoting sex to your children is their Bread & Butter!

Parents can find out the type of Sex Ed allowed/not allowed in their state using the following links.

Guttmacher provides information about parental notification, consent, or Opting-Out. If Sex Ed is taught in your state, find out if teaching about contraception, abstinence, importance of sex only within marriage, sexual orientation, negative outcomes of teen sex, and/or Life Skills are required. If HIV education is mandated, information is available about whether condoms and/or abstinence must be included.

The SIECUS link provides progress updates and future goals on sexual issues in your particular state and legislation in the works.

Read Those Notification and Consent Forms!

By now, parents should have received a stack of papers from their school to read and sign. If not, check your child’s backpack! Read the papers carefully. Some schools may only reveal that your child will receive Sex Ed this year. They may have a fancy name for the program and never tell you the title of the actual curricula used to indoctrinate your child into the world of sexual lifestyles.

Other schools may wait until closer to the time sex classes begin to notify parents. This means that parents only have a week or two to look into the Sex Ed provided and make a decision. This popular tactic puts peer pressure on the parents to just let their child attend the classes to avoid “embarrassment” or “offending” the teacher or school.

Be sure to check the Guttmacher link (above) to find out about the “role of parents.” Most states are only required to notify parents that students will receive sex ed during the school year. They may not need your consent at all. This is how millions of kids are indoctrinated every year.

What Type of Sex Ed Is Taught?

It is important to find out the type of Sex Ed in your school. The information from your school district may be intentionally vague and confusing. Ask to see all curricula including posters, videos, teacher manuals, etc. There should be no hesitation by the administration to show these programs to parents. At the same time, many schools would rather parents Opt-Out than know what is really in the curricula!

Sexual Risk Reduction – Does your school district teach Sexual Risk Reduction (SRR) education? SRR is the same as Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE) and might include a statement or two that abstaining from sexual activity is the only 100% way to avoid pregnancy and STDs. The remaining content in the curricula is about so-called ‘safe sex’ or ‘protected sex.’

Parents beware…Don’t be duped by Sex Ed programs claiming that they are “Abstinence-based” or have an “Abstinence-Approach.” These programs usually spend less than 5% of their content on abstinence and 95% on promoting reasons to have so-called “safe sex.” Many school districts, teachers, and parents are deceived by this type of marketing.

CSE/SRR education cannot claim to prevent pregnancies and STDs, because it does not discourage sex. SRR might reduce the risks. CSE/SRR programs normalize LGBTQ and transgender lifestyles. Check to see if your school provides any of the CSE/SRR programs, (except for Heritage Keepers® Abstinence Education,) on this Teen Pregnancy Prevention Programs list.  If you find a program on this list, check out the research to see if the program even worked to increase condom/contraception use, reduce number of partners, and/or reduced frequency of sex. How long did their results last? Was there any effect at the end of the program? How many studies were done and what were the sample sizes? Was the program evaluated in a school setting or in a community/after school setting? You may be shocked at what you learn.

Sexual Risk Avoidance – Some states mandate or at least allow schools to offer a separate course on Sexual Risk Avoidance (SRA) or Abstinence Education. SRA/Abstinence Education is a public health approach that advocates teaching all students, regardless of sexual history or sexual orientation, the benefits of abstinence, the life skills to avoid sexual risks, and how to plan for their future.

If your school district says that they offer a proven-effective SRA/Abstinence Education curricula, it should be on this Authentic SRA Curricula list. Any SRA/Abstinence Education offered must be taught as a separate course! Otherwise, the medically accurate information and life skills contained will be obscured by the illicit content in CSE/SRR programs intended to entice kids to have sex. Mixed messages do not work for kids!

ExposeSexEdNow ONLY supports the SRA/Abstinence Education Approach. And, Heritage Keepers® is the only Abstinence-Outside-Of-Marriage curricula on both the Teen Pregnancy Prevention Program and the Authentic SRA Curricula sites. This program should be welcomed in all public schools!

After one year, Heritage Keepers® Abstinence Education students

initiated sexual activity at a rate that is 67% lower than students not receiving the program.

 

Write an Opt-Out Letter, Today!

If SRA/Abstinence Education is not allowed in your school, parents must resist the pressure to conform to the LGBTQ/Sexual Rights Agenda. Seriously consider Opting-Out of all Sex Ed in that school!

Write a standard Opt-Out letter each year. This letter specifies what you, the parent/legal guardian, will allow and/or not allow regarding sexual content taught to your child. Get other parents in the school to do the same. The more parents that will Opt-Out of CSE/SRR education, and all sexually explicit content in any course, the safer your child will be.

Opt-out letters can be as simple or detailed as you want. Some excellent examples of opt-out letters can be found at these sites:

Experience has taught us that Opt-Out letters need to include the following to be effective:

  • Ask for a written response by a defined date indicating that the administration received and agrees to your requests
  • Address your letter to the Superintendent and copy all members of the School Board and principal
  • Send letters by registered mail so that you have a signed confirmation that it was received
  • Keep a dated and signed copy each year

If all else fails to reveal the true intent of your school’s administration, ask to sit in on Sex Ed classes BEFORE you will allow your child to participate. Don’t let anyone tell you that they are the experts and “not to worry!”

If your school’s administration “drank the LGBTQ/Transgender Kool-Aid,” you may need to seriously consider Opting-Out of all public schools in your state.

It is up to you to protect your children.

No one cares more about your children than you do!

No one!

 

 

Sex Slavery expands in Georgia

Featured

Mary S. McLellan, M.S., SRAS ~ ExposeSexEdNow.com

 

Sex Trafficking in GA Georgia is well known for having a human sex trafficking epidemic. Sex trafficking in Atlanta and other hot spots in Georgia have been reported for years and it’s only getting worse. So, why are children and families in Georgia so vulnerable to sex trafficking?

To make matters worse, recently Gov. Deal (R) caved to economic tyranny imposed by the Human Rights Campaign’s (HRC).HRC is one of the main proponents of normalizing sex for minors in the nation. As a result of HRC’s bully tactics, religious leaders must now marry couples against their church’s doctrine, thus promoting sexual practices that violate religious liberty guaranteed by the GA and US  Constitution.

The HRC is a member of the National Coalition to Support Sexuality Education and author of the so-called  federal Healthy Youth Act. Their goal is to mandate Comprehensive Sex Education (Sexual Rights-only) in all public schools. One method of achieving this goal is to make it illegal in Georgia to teach students the benefits of delaying sexual activity and the importance of marriage for raising healthy families. California has already passed such legislation.

FLASH is a sex program listed on Planned Parenthood’s website and the primary source of sexual health information for students in DeKalb County schools in metro-Atlanta. FLASH curricula has been used for years in Seattle and Kings County, Washington throughout elementary, middle, and high schools. FLASH normalizes sexual activity among and with minors.

FLASH sex classes are required to be co-ed so that students can learn to feel comfortable talking about sex with their friends. Teachers are trained to “norm” the classroom so that students feel safe asking  questions and students are told not to talk about content or discussions outside of the classroom. “Family” is defined without including a traditional family model.

A review of FLASH videos and information for teachers reveals that minors, who cannot legally consent to sex, learn about the following subject matter:

  • LGBT Youth: Reteaching Gender & Sexuality

    • This film won awards from Gay and Lesbian film festivals in San Francisco, Seattle, London, and Rio.

    • It normalizes gay, lesbian, transgender relationships – everyone is queer. If you are not queer, you are the odd one.

  • STD Prevention: STD Myths from SexEtc.org, a project of Answer at Rutgers University (YouTube.)

    • While this film has some medically accurate information about STDs, it promotes sexual activity as normal among and with minors.

    • STDs are either treatable or manageable.

    • Condoms and dental dams are the “best protection,” if not practicing abstinence. However, abstinence is not recommended as the best sexual health option nor is it presented as the norm for teens, which CDC data supports.

    • SexEtc.org/Answer is funded by the US Health and Human Services Maternal and Child Health, an author of the National Sexuality Education Standards, and a member of the National Coalition to Support Sexuality Education. All of these entities promote sexual activity.

  • HIV-Focus on Testing: Sexual Health

    • This film depicts sex acts among and with minors using comic book style storytelling.

    • Contains foul and coarse language. Portrays parents as idiots.

  • HIV-Focus on Communication, only for 12th grade: Your Body. Your Rules

    • Normalizes sex among and with minors.

    • Teaches that assertiveness is good, but only if you are demanding condom use.

    • Girl says that she only has one rule for having sex: Use a condom.

  • Talking with Partners About Prevention: Just Like You Imagined?

    • Normalizes sex among and with minors.

    • Portrays normal life of a teen as chaotic.

None of the content we found in FLASH curricula teaches minors the benefits of avoiding risky sexual behavior. FLASH violates basic public health policies by normalizing sexual activity that has long-term health consequences for the general public. FLASH also undermines the authority of parents by portraying them as ignorant, out of touch with reality, and incapable to providing wise guidance to their children.

By normalizing child sex in public education, adolescents and teens are groomed to accept and engage in sex. This makes them most vulnerable to pedophiles, sex traffickers, and pornographers. Georgia is conducting state sponsored sexual exploitation of minors and no one seems to care.

Georgia now owns your children, their education, their faith, and their future. Under the guise of Sexual Rights, your children are now sex slaves to the state.

 

So-called War on Women

Featured

Mary S. McLellan, M.S., SRAS ~ ExposeSexEdNow.com

No, we don’t punish women who have had or will have abortions. We never have.

That is why Pregnancy Care Centers should be supported. They care for the woman and the baby, and stay connected for as long as necessary. Women, who decide to carry their babies, find out how amazingly strong and beautiful they really are.

And, they are grateful for life-affirming options.

The real problem with abortion is it fails women. The entire Reproductive Rights Movement tells women they cannot control their own bodies. If they are not sexually active, use contraception, and have abortions then they are just not as valuable, independent, and free as a man.

The real War on Women creates victims, increases dependence on welfare, and enslaves women and their children to more and more so-called reproductive health services.

That is not freedom.

Sexual Rights Agenda: Confuse the Masses

Featured

by Mary McLellan and Robert Swain

Sexual Rights Advocates claim victory for the lowest teen birth rates in decades. But, why are the rates at an all-time low? Is it really due to “safe sex” education in the schools and the push to get all girls on birth control?

Or, are teens making better decisions and refusing to engage in sex, so that they can focus on their future?

It is laughable that Sexual Rights Advocates claim responsibility for the majority of teens delaying sex! Their programs do not teach Sexual Risk Avoidance (SRA) skills to abstain from sex. In fact, most of their sex programs teach Sexual Risk Reduction (SRR) skills to “avoid unprotected sex” and “to enjoy the pleasures of “safe sex.”

How can teens focus on their future in such a sexually charged climate?

The goal of the Sexual Rights Agenda is to confuse the uninformed public. They do this by masking the content of most sex programs, keeping the media hype going, and demanding that hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars continue to flow in their direction.

It is true that teen pregnancy and birth rates are at their lowest in decades. Yet, the Sex Cartels demand that “more taxpayer money is needed, state laws must be changed, and more must be done, because one unplanned pregnancy is just too many.”

This false narrative convinces school districts and legislators that only SRR (“safe sex”) programs will work, because “all teens will have sex.” These programs are pushed by the Sex Cartels, including Planned Parenthood, SIECUS, LGBTQ, Campaign to Prevent Teen Pregnancy, Advocates for Youth, and the CDC.

However, if one really looks at the data a different narrative emerges. In South Carolina (SC), SRR advocates receive millions in taxpayer dollars annually to expand into more and more schools. And, they claim that they are responsible for the dramatic 68% decrease in pregnancy rates for teens (15-17) and 80% decrease for adolescents (10-14). (SC DHEC 2015)

This decline is not a phenomenon, but consistent with national trends. Plus, the CDC’s YRBS (Youth Risk Behavior Survey) for SC reveals that for almost 20-years, most sexually experienced teens have NOT used contraception. They are not practicing “safe-sex.” There has been a:

  •  26% increase (2005-2013) in teens who did not use a condom during last sexual intercourse.
  • 83% of girls did not use birth control pills to prevent pregnancy before last sexual intercourse. (UNCHANGED since 1995)
  • 97% of girls did not use an IUD before last sexual intercourse.

The SC YRBS also reveals that only 32% of high school teens were sexually active at the time of the survey. In addition, there was a:

  • 28% decrease in high school teens who have EVER had sex. (1995-2013)
  • 49% decrease in 9th grade teens who have EVER had sex. (1995-2013)
  • 30% decrease in high school teens who are sexually active. (1995-2013)

In other words, over the past 18 years:

  • Sexually active SC high school teens have not been practicing “safe-sex.” (SRR education has failed in SC for decades and  they don’t want you to know it!)
  • The majority of SC high school teens were not having sex and/or have NEVER had sex!
  • The percentage of sexually experienced high school teens has decreased steadily since 1995.

Most SC students are not duped by the “all teens are having sex, so you better protect yourself” mantras that are chanted in sex classes. Rather, smart teens embrace the SRA (abstinence) messages promoted by their parents, churches, and agencies that teach Evidence-based Abstinence Education.

Teens will live up to high standards! So, we should set high standards for them and for ourselves.

Such progress bodes well for SC, but only if the current trend continues. SRA (abstinence) should be taught as a separate component for all school age children. To omit this vital perspective from schools is censorship.

 

“Safe Sex” education sets our kids up for failure and it defeats the purpose of quality education.
