The story on Fox News shows how people who are brainwashed can believe they are resisting evil when they are firmly planted in evil’s digestive tract. It also shows that our eugenic legacy is alive and well. Hat tip to “Joffre the Giant’s” blog for pointing this out.
A father said if his 13-year-old daughter hadn’t taken a picture of a questionable public poster and shown him, he’d never have known the content. Now that he knows, he’s not happy.
Mark Ellis says his daughter goes to Hocker Grove Middle School in the Shawnee Mission School District. She was so shocked by what she recently saw on a poster at school, that she took a picture of it home and showed her parents.
Her dad initially assumed it was a student prank, until he called the school and found it was part of the curriculum.
“Why would you put it in front of 13-year-old students?” he asked.
He thought the poster, which lists things like “oral sex” and “grinding,” might’ve been a prank until he contacted the school principal. He was told it was a teaching material. But Ellis is now concerned that what’s on this poster is being taught to his daughter in school
“It upsets me. And again, it goes back to who approved this? You know this had to pass through enough hands that someone should have said, ‘Wait a minute, these are 13-year-old kids, we do not need to be this in-depth with this sexual education type of program,’” he said.
District spokeswoman, Leigh Anne Neal, says the poster needs to be viewed in the context of a bigger curriculum, which she calls abstinence-based for students in middle school.
“The poster that you reference is actually part of our middle school health and science materials, and so it is a part of our district approved curriculum,” Neal said. “However the item is meant to be part of a lesson, and so certainly as a standalone poster without the context of a teacher led discussion, I could see that there might be some cause for concern.”
She said that the approved curriculum is in line with what other schools around the country do as well.
“The curriculum it is a part of, it aligns with national standards around those topics, and it’s part of our curriculum in the school district,” she said.
OK, just stop. Claiming the poster and curriculum “aligns with national standards around those topics, and it’s part of our curriculum in the school district” isn’t a defense. It is a confession to criminal conspiracy.
Furthermore, the Fox News story only mentioned a couple of terms and put a warning to viewers at the beginning of the story. The school never gave any warning.
The Fox video story briefly flashed the poster on the screen. Here’s a screen capture from Joffre’s blog. You can click on it to make it larger.
You notice that real sex is drown in a menu of choices that are not means of loving one’s spouse but “how do people express their sexual feelings.” The entire context of that poster is porn culture, not an ethic that could possibly sustain a family.
(I have to wonder if part of the design of this is to encourage childless couples.)
But the real tragedy here is how the Fox story ends:
But Ellis thinks if that’s the case, the curriculum needs to change.
“This has nothing to do with abstinence or sexual reproduction, actually, a lot of these things,” he said. “I would like to see that this particular portion of the curriculum is removed from the school.”
And if the curriculum doesn’t change, Ellis plans to remove his daughter from the sexual education classes.
As Joffre comments:
Here’s what surprises me every time even though it shouldn’t. It’s a testament to the efficacy of the state’s brainwashing regarding education. The father’s big plan in response to this outrage is to take his daughter out of the class. Not out of the school, mind you. Just go sit in the library and wait for the next wholesome class.
I don’t know what economic pressures Ellis feels that he has to put his daughter in that school, but he’s not grasping the situation. He has just discovered that his daughter is being trained by an organization run by perverts. Not only did they display the poster but they defended it and appealed to an entire culture that produces this stuff, approves it, and calls it “abstinence based.”
Those people don’t deserve your trust, Ellis. If you are stuck between a rock and a hard place then at least admit the truth: You’re a captive in a system of truancy laws, public records, de facto licensure arrangements, social expectation, and taxes that make it hard for you to find options that you think will make your daughter better off.
You may not see a way out yet, but you won’t ever find one if you don’t admit the problem. Having her sit in the library just makes school administrators smile.
