What is Sex Ed Sit Out?
A grassroots movement of frustrated public school parents is turning their frustration into action. These parents want to end the sexualization of their children during class time. To achieve that purpose, they are holding a “Sex Ed Sit Out” protest on Monday, April 23rd, 2018. This protest was initiated by a few moms on social media who were troubled by the graphic nature of current sex education resources in schools. It has since grown into a global movement with protests being planned in the U.S., Canada, and Australia.
Why Sex Ed Sit Out?
The Sit Out strategy is our way to make your voice heard. When the parents of our nation unite to exercise their rights, those in power will hear…
- We will not accept pornagraphic material in sex ed.
- We will not stand by and let activists skew education
- We will not let our tax-dollars be spent this way.
- We will not let our kids be helplessly sexualized in their classrooms.
Will You Add Your Voice to Countless Others Across the Nation?
Parents are demanding to know why their children are being taught how to have anal and oral sex, masturbate one another, and question their gender. Caryl Ayala, a former public school teacher and organizer of the Austin, Texas protest, said, “We are uniting with parents across the globe to demand that our rights as parents be respected regarding the teaching of sexuality and sexual orientation. Hands off our kids!”
Cities such as Rocklin, California and Fairfax County, Virginia have recently been the focus of news headlines because of controversial, gender-bending, and graphic sex education and anti-bullying programs. Parents say they were not informed that these programs would be taught to their children, sometimes as young as five years old.
“Why are our tax dollars going to pay for curriculums and resources that teach dangerous and promiscuous behaviors which most parents find morally abhorrent and the CDC [Centers for Disease Control] has stated are a health risk?” questioned Elizabeth Johnston, viral activist blogger and concerned mother. “Furthermore, why aren’t administrators being transparent with parents about the content of sexuality resources? It’s as if they have something to hide. That should frighten parents everywhere.”
Education Chairwoman of the Indiana Liberty Coalition and one of the protest organizers, Rhonda Miller, stated, “Follow the money. Comprehensive sex ed is being rolled out across America, often sponsored by special interest LGBT groups like Human Rights Campaign, and disguised as anti-bullying programs. If it’s not okay for special interest groups like the NRA [National Rifle Association] to be buying classroom time to push their agenda, then how is it okay for HRC monies to be buying schools off to teach gender-bending ideology and anal sex tutorials?”
On April 23rd, parents around the U.S., Canada, and Australia will be pulling their children out of school for the day. They will be protesting dangerous and graphic sex education and uniting at various locations to hold press events and field media questions. Let education decision-makers and government leaders know you are here, you are aware of what’s happening, and you are fighting for the youth of this nation. The list of participating cities holding special events on April 23rd around the globe is growing quickly.
