Charleston, SC: The Horns Come Out!

Featured

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

mens-scary-devil-horns-long-halloween-fancy-dress-9748-pLast week, the Charleston County School District had the audacity to protect the innocence of middle school students from the Sexual Rights Agenda. They voted unanimously to REJECT the Appendix to Making A Difference!, a Comprehensive Sex Education curriculum. The Board said that the Appendix contained inappropriate information for students in middle school.

 

Maybe it’s Halloween, but all Hell has broken loose! The horns are out from every Sexual Rights organization in and outside of South Carolina. How dare the school district defy them! The Sexual Rights Cartel is livid and won’t stop until parents and taxpayers tell them to shut-up and keep their hands off of children!

Who are these Sexual Rights organizations in SC demanding that minors learn how to have so-called “safe sex?” According to the media buzz, they are Women’s Rights & Empowerment Network – a new organization established by New Morning Foundation/Tell Them SCFlorence Crittenton, and Charleston County Teen Pregnancy Prevention Council, which is part of the SC Campaign to Prevent Teen Pregnancy. They all work in concert with the media: Post & Courier, Charleston Currents, and the National Coalition to Support Sexuality Education to promote the Sexual Rights Agenda through taxpayer supported government infrastructure.

The so-called “revised” Making A Difference! curriculum has not been evaluated for effectiveness and it is doubtful that it is any different or better from the original 1998 version. The original version was never evaluated in a school based setting. Even then…

“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.”

Making A Difference! is touted as an “abstinence” program, but the title tells the true story: “Making A Difference!” An Abstinence Approach to Prevent STDs, HIV and Teen Pregnancy.” It is not an authentic abstinence education program because appropriate boundaries for sex, such as commitment, monogamy and marriage, are not discussed. Without boundaries anything is permissible! The term “abstinence approach” is often used to deceive school districts, teachers, parents and taxpayers into thinking that they are supporting an effective sex ed program.

Why is this program not age appropriate? Middle school students are typically 11-13 years old. They are minors, which means that they are legally incapable of consenting to sex. Laws are written to protect minors from sexual predators or anyone that would make them vulnerable to enticement into sexual activities. This is a very serious matter in our culture.

Charleston County School Board is more than justified in nixing the Making A Difference! Appendix. It includes information about sexual orientation (which is a violation of state law), inaccurate and misleading information about the effectiveness of condoms, and ambiguous language about the definition of abstinence. It also suggests that sexual foreplay is an appropriate alternative to intercourse, and it normalizes sexual relationships for minors.

Judge for yourself! Here are just a few examples found in the Making A Difference! Appendix:

  • Pg. 222-225. Role Plays about Gay, Lesbian, and Bisexual relationships.
  • Pg. 228 #9. (True) or False. “Anyone who has unprotected sex or shares needles can get HIV.”
    • While this is technically a true statement, it is also true that ‘Anyone who has protected sex (condoms) can get HIV.’ People still get HIV, even when using a condom. Condoms do not make sex safe enough.
    • Adolescents are primarily concrete thinkers and their brains have not developed to the point of higher abstract and critical thinking. Most adolescents (11-13) will not notice the discrepancies in their statement, which implies that using a condom is ‘just about’ as safe as abstinence.
  • Pg. 229
    • #16. Implies that condoms are 100% effective at preventing HIV transmission.  This is medically inaccurate, in fact fraudulent, information. Condoms can only reduce the risk of HIV infection.
    • Pg. 229, #20. Suggests sexual foreplay ideas and defines all of the listed behaviors as “sexual behaviors.”
      • Legal minors are asked to select 3 “sexual behaviors” that will not exchange bodily fluids.
      • Avoiding bodily fluids is not the only danger of having sex. This activity implies that sex is OK as long as bodily fluids are not transmitted.
      • 11-13 year old minors are legally incapable of consenting to sex. To normalize sex for minors makes educators complicit in contributing to the delinquency of a minor.
    • 252. The definition of abstinence is inadequate, misleading, and narrowly focused only on sexual intercourse.
      • In Making A Difference!, as well as in most Comprehensive Sex Education programs, abstinence is often defined as “not engaging in sexual intercourse of any type (oral, anal or vaginal).” This definition allows for sexual foreplay, which can transmit STDs, and often leads to sexual intercourse.
      • The medically accurate and age appropriate definition for abstinence is “not engaging in any sexual activity of any type, including oral, anal or vaginal.

The Sexual Rights Cartel has exposed their horns. They are not interested in protecting kids. They only want access to them.

Write the Charleston County School Board today and tell them thank-you for protecting the innocence of children. They need support from parents for this decision.

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?

PP-Network Takes Credit for Teen Abstinence??

1 in 4 girls has ever had sexWhile the Planned Parenthood Network (PP-Network) pumps out endless propaganda bashing abstinence-until-marriage education and takes credit for the dramatic decreases in teen pregnancies, CDC data shows that teens (15-17) have been abstaining from sex, at increasing rates, over the past decade. The most recent data shows that almost 75% of teens (15-17) nationally surveyed by the CDC, have not had sex.

To the PP-Network, the only problem with sex is that it makes babies and BABIES ARE A REAL PROBLEM for them. Sexual Rights is the PP-Network’s agenda. Therefore, whatever it takes to prevent babies from being conceived, developing or born is the goal of the sex and abortion industry.

Why is the PP-Network so OFFENDED by abstinence-until-marriage education?

Because, abstinence-until-marriage education promotes MARRIAGE and FIDELITY WITHIN MARRIAGE.

The PP-Network has no problem saying that they believe in abstinence, as long as they get to define what abstinence means. To them, oral sex, anal sex, and mutual masturbation are the same as abstinence, because these sex acts do not make babies.

And, these SexPerts have no problem telling kids to abstain, as long as there are no restrictions on how long they must wait. Abstinence to them can be until teens are 13, 16, 18 or whenever they feel they are ready to be “proud and responsible” enough to use condoms and take toxic hormones.

This is why Comprehensive Sex Education is such a farce. It is not, and cannot be, “comprehensive” since it would have to teach all views on the purposes of sex.

The PP view of sex ed is to promote hedonism without forming a family while Abstinence-Until-Marriage Education promotes romance and healthy family formation, within marriage, resulting in connected generations of families.

There is no comprehensive program or curriculum that could attempt to teach both views, with a straight face. It would be ludicrous! Which view do you think will provide the best future for your child?

Proponents of Comprehensive Sex Education claim that it covers abstinence and contraception and everything in between. Except that it doesn’t. What they hide from the public, and especially parents, is the fact that they do not teach about marriage, family formation, or the responsibilities of raising children. They teach sex.

Proponents also do not want it exposed that add-on programs, like Making A Difference! and Making Proud Choices!, both listed on PP’s website, teach sexual foreplay and intercourse, under the guise of STD prevention, so that condoms can be taught to younger and younger kids. However, sexual foreplay also spreads STDs. Medically Accurate?

Abstinence-Until-Marriage education is the exact opposite of the PP-Network’s Sexual Rights Agenda in the following ways:

Abstinence-Until-Marriage programs are holistic, meaning that humans are viewed as whole beings with value and uniqueness. The act of sex biologically impacts the mind, body, emotions and spirit as humans engage in it, even if there is no intercourse. This is why humans are different. We are not animals.

  • The PP-Network’s Sexual Rights Agenda views humans as genitals to be fondled, and maybe if convenient, protected from disease with condoms. Little girls and women are to use hormones to prevent or get rid of pregnancies. In the end, humans are simply sex toys for someone else’s pleasure. This is why the PP-Networks want no limits or restrictions on sex.  

Abstinence-Until-Marriage programs teach students that abstinence means not engaging in sexual activity until marriage, including vaginal, oral, anal sex and mutual masturbation. Such programs also teach about the dangers of porn, sexting, and cohabitation.

  • The PP-Network’s Sexual Rights Agenda promotes unbridled sexual activity – at any age – with anyone or anything – as long as there is “consent” – whatever that means.

Abstinence-Until-Marriage promotes life-long, faithful marriage. The social sciences have proven that there are at least Thirty Benefits of Marriage and that children fare best on all social indicators when raised by their own two married parents.

  • The PP-Network’s Sexual Rights Agenda seeks to destroy marriage as an institution and therefore the traditional family. Even the gay marriage movement is just a Progressive ploy to gradually redefine the family and get rid of marriage as an institution and a societal good. None of the sex programs for schools listed on the PP website promote marriage, even for gay couples.

Abstinence-Until-Marriage promotes the fact that sex is wonderful and creates intimacy – within the context of marriage. When sex takes place within a marriage, it is more likely to be safer than outside of marriage. Research has shown that married couples have more sex and more satisfying sex than singles.

  • The PP-Network’s Sexual Rights agenda promotes sex without boundaries, especially without the restraints of marriage, monogamy, or commitment. They portray an unrealistic, unsatisfying, and false view of “Hollywood” sex to get people of all ages hooked on sexual pleasures.    

Abstinence-Until-Marriage promotes the fact that waiting until one has finished their education, and married before having sex and children is the best way to become an economically self-sufficient and prosperous member of society with a stable family life.

  • The PP-Network’s Sexual Rights agenda teaches that humans are sexual from birth and need to have sex in order to mature properly. (Alfred Kinsey/SIECUS) They target poor, minority, inner city neighborhoods to push their sex without boundaries, contraception and abortion agenda. This increases the risks of generational poverty, drop-out rates, and unwed childbearing. 
  • Planned Parenthood receives millions of taxpayer dollars annually to promote their agenda, plus they are large part of Obamacare so the revolving door of poverty and dependency will continue to spin out of control.

So, why are teen pregnancy rates declining? For many reasons.

According to several CDC reports, more and more teens are choosing to delay sex and those who are having sex are being more selective. The PP Network cannot take credit for the increase in abstinence, because they do not seriously teach it.

Real credit needs to go to the smart teens themselves who are choosing to abstain. Also, to parents, faith leaders and educators who really care about kids and are not afraid to tell them to delay sex until marriage.

Let’s not give credit to those who are promoting a Sexual Rights Agenda and are being paid by the sex industries.

That would be a farce.

Sex Ed: What can I get away with today?

RedYellowGreenLightsWhat are kids learning about avoiding risky behaviors?

Are we teaching them that some risks are worth the consequences?

This is not how prevention  approaches the use of tobacco, drugs, and alcohol. Parents and teachers use every scientific argument known to be directive and adamant about abstaining from these substances and there are laws designed to prevent youth and adults from engaging or promoting such risky behaviors. This approach is the reason that tobacco use among teens has dramatically decreased over the past twenty-years.

Yet, when risky behaviors pertain to sexual activity, parents, teachers, and even law enforcement, become ambivalent and provide wishy-washy guidance, at best, leaving young people exposed to the consequences of sex without boundaries. Why do we shrink back from using every medically accurate, scientific fact to teach our teens and young adults how to abstain and set clear boundaries for appropriate sexual activity?

Why are we, in fact, doing just the opposite?

Many parents tell us that they feel like hypocrites telling their teens to delay sex, even until marriage, because they did not do so. This is exactly how societies go from bad to worse! Adults need to know that this is no longer about them and their sexual history! They have a chance to effect their child’s future. They need to refocus their attention onto what is best for their children and their peers. They need to give them the best sexual health messages, because that’s what most good parents do.

Many Comprehensive Health Ed programs in our schools add-on pregnancy and STD prevention curricula found on the Planned Parenthood website. These curricula teach sexual foreplay techniques with condoms to 11-16 year old teens, under the guise of HIV/STD prevention. Rather than teach clear, protective boundaries, they teach what teens/adults can get away with in our culture. With the clear and unambiguous boundaries of marriage and monogamous life-long fidelity rapidly disappearing from our culture, Sexual Rights have become the predominant message.

However, even with hormonal birth control and condoms, sexual activity still leads to predictable consequences such as pregnancy, disease, and life-long regret. Planned Parenthood, and other abortion services, benefit financially when the inevitable happens. No wonder they push these programs in our schools.

For at least the past three decades, Sex Ed in our schools, military, and colleges has abandoned the science of reproduction, and the medical and social benefits of abstinence and pregnancy prevention. Sex Ed is almost entirely about how to reduce the risks of sex, while still having “erotic, fun, and pleasurable” sex with condoms.

Sex education is an integral part of a worldwide Sexual Rights Agenda that fails to protect the rights of its victims to be really safe and free from harm.

While adults can legally make decisions about their sexual risks, minors and teens cannot, and they deserve legal and social protections from this dangerous agenda and from the adults who indulge in it.

Just two decades ago, military and civilian personnel were effectively trained on sexual harassment using actual court cases, so that they would know the clear boundaries they must follow to stay out of trouble. In recent years, Red, Yellow and Green Light trainings deal with tolerating the sexual behaviors of others and how far a person can go without violating “consent.” Or, how to obtain “consent” without being charged with harassment, sexual abuse or rape.

The lessons taught are about how to avoid the consequences of behavior, not about how to avoid the behavior leading to the consequences. This strategy has never worked for alcohol, drugs, and tobacco use.

Why do we insanely insist that it will work for out-of-bounds sexual activity?

Click on the pictures below. These are very similar sex lessons taught to students, under the guise of HIV Prevention. These sex lessons are known as Red, Yellow and Green Light Activities, found in Making A Difference! (pg. 120) for middle schools and in Be Proud! Be Responsible! (pg. 54) for high schools. Both curricula are produced by Select Media and are provided “FREE” to school districts and “Safe Sex-only” agencies around the nation with Federal and State grants using our tax money.

The purported goal of these lessons is to encourage the use of condoms (protected sex) while engaging in so-called “safe sex.” All of these activities are openly discussed in class as “safe” or “unsafe” ways to express sexual feelings. The Yellow Light activities are presented as “safe,” as long as condoms are used consistently and correctly at every incidence of sex. Even some of the Green Light activities are suspect, and the Red Light activities are really not off limits, as long as “protection” is used.

Even the CDC has stopped using percent effectiveness of condoms against HIV/STD transmission in their most recent Fact Sheet. They only claim that condoms are “highly effective.” However, condoms are only effective if used consistently and correctly during every act of vaginal sexual intercourse. The CDC warns about anal sex, yet promotes condoms for this activity, especially for gay and bisexual men.

Factor in normal human behavior, and the consequences from engaging in these sexual activities are just a “roll of the dice.” One does not get to choose which consequence(s) – STDs, pregnancy, depression, school failure, suicide, or nothing – they would prefer to endure.

“Better to be safe, than sorry” use to be the prevailing wisdom.

Now it is simply, “What can I get away with!”

This is not wisdom and it protects no one.

Summerville, SC: Sex Ed Ploys

Summerville 1Summerville 2

After attending 2 orchestrated meetings this week in Summerville that should have exposed the Planned Parenthood Sex Ed agenda, I am convinced that the power brokers in the school district are either in denial or complicit in promoting sexual foreplay education to our 11-17 year old youth.

The first meeting was a forum for candidates running for state office. The audience was asked to submit questions which were completely ignored if they pertained to challenging the sexually explicit sex ed programs being used in the middle and high schools.

Therefore, Rep. Jenny Horne and Rep. Chris Murphy got off having to explain why they are promoting 4-Planned Parenthood Sex Ed programs in Summerville schools and why they are pushing for the state to mandate at least 11 of these programs throughout the state.

These Saul Alinsky tactics also prevented the other candidates from outing Horne and Murphy. Slick!

The next meeting, several miles away, was the district School Board meeting. Their agenda indicated that there would be a report on their “workshop” held last week – where questions, comments and discussions were not allowed – to explain how they were going to change how they use Making Proud Choices! and other sex ed programs in the district to make them more “palatable.”

At this “workshop” Superintendent Joseph Pye stated:

“We have shared this (Making Proud Choices! sex ed curriculum) with [Rep] Jenny Horne and she is fine with what we are teaching.”

Last week’s “workshop” was quickly put together and did not allow for adequate public awareness. As a result, very few people attended and those that did were not allowed to participate as one would expect.

Back to the School Board meeting… after 2 hours of business, the Board chair asked if anyone had signed up prior to the meeting to speak. Since no one had, the topic of sex education was brushed aside and ignored.  The meeting was over. No one knew that they had to sign up to speak on the topic in order for the Board to follow their own agenda!

So much for transparency and accountability!

 

 

 

Exposed: “Making a Difference!”

Making a Differnce MAD 001Beware!!! Just because a sex education program says it is “abstinence” or “abstinence-only” or “an abstinence approach” does not make it so. The Planned Parenthood/SIECUS Networks in SC, NC, TX, HI, AZ, KS, NY, FL, WA, CA, OH, etc. are already teaching this in public schools as abstinence!

“Making A Difference!” does not teach middle school students (11-13 year olds MINORS) about MARRIAGE, so where is the context for sex? Until you want to?

Without context, there are no boundaries for sex.

Exposed: “Making A Difference!”

Making a Differnce

Making A Difference!, one of the sex education curricula in the news, out of Kansas and South Carolina, plainly states on its cover that it is an “Evidence-Based, Abstinence Approach to Teen Pregnancy, STD and HIV Prevention.”

The authors, Jemmott/Jemmott and their Select Media company, are responsible for this Sexual Foreplay curriculum, as well as, Making Proud Choices!, and Be Proud! Be Responsible!, in school districts across the nation.

The same sexually explicit content found on the Making A Difference! poster can be found in Module 2, pg. 65 of the Facilitator Manual, and similar verbiage is repeated on pg. 149, 150 in Making Proud Choices! and pg. 54 in Be Proud! Be Responsible!

Proponents of Making A Difference! defend its poster by saying that it’s content is taken out of context. So, let’s look at the context. The RATIONALE for this “brainstorming” lesson in Making A Difference! is in a sidebar on page 65 and states:

“Understanding that there are many behaviors that express sexual feelings help participants choose sexual behaviors that do not result in pregnancy or sexually transmitted infection.”

So, 11-13 year old minors are instructed to “choose sexual behaviors” and given a list of options to “brainstorm” about in class with mixed genders present. This lesson is all about introducing and normalizing sex acts to adolescents. As long as the risk of a pregnancy or STD is reduced, the sex act is OK. This is classic condom use and sexual foreplay instruction and it is found in most of the Jemmott/Jemmott and Select Media programs.

Where is the so-called “Abstinence Approach?” It appears to teach kids that, while abstinence is the best choice (disclaimer), PROTECTED SEX is just as safe when it comes to preventing pregnancy and disease.

Is this medically accurate, age appropriate instruction?

If this were in any other setting, there could be criminal charges against the perpetrators for sexual exploitation of minors. As it is, public school districts and their teachers are exempt when instructing your children about sexually explicit subjects under the guise of Pregnancy and STD Prevention.

These types of curricula play with your child’s mind and mold him/her towards sexual exploration. The content also labels mostly innocent behaviors as “sexual” so that the boundaries between nonsexual behaviors gets blurred with sexual foreplay behaviors.

Behaviors such as hugging, talking, saying “I like you,” dancing, holding hands, kissing, caressing, and massage are listed as “sexual behaviors” along with oral sex, sexual fantasy, anal sex, touching each others genitals, vaginal intercourse and grinding.

They are all on the same list.

Adolescents have a difficult time with boundaries, as it is. What are they to think when their teacher states that these innocent behaviors are also “sexual?” Why shouldn’t they “cross the line” into those other more exciting sexual behaviors?” After all, they are all listed as “sexual behaviors.”

Sex education in the schools has been out of bounds for decades and our culture is reflecting it. The Jemmotts, Select Media, and many other authors and publishing/distribution companies have made fortunes with federal CDC HIV funding contracts and by peddling their wares to school districts across the nation.

The federal government and the Planned Parenthood/SIECUS Networks continue to use your tax money to fund and approve these programs and to influence legislation to mandate them in all schools.

It is all about the money. The earlier an adolescent begins to have sex, the more sexual partners they will have, and the more sexual partners they have the more likely they will get pregnant and have an abortion.    It is all about the money.

No one cares about your children more than you do. Right? Sexual Climate and Peer Group are significant predictors of teen sexual activity. And, your school may be providing the perfect sexual climate (cesspool) and negative peer pressure to entice and seduce your child and their friends into engaging in sexual behaviors.

Now that you know, what will you do about it?
