Constitutional Emergency

Warning: Graphic content included below

It’s happened again. Another disturbing example of public schools and advocacy groups intruding into areas they shouldn’t without parental notification and permission.

This time a Washington, D.C., middle school (Hardy Middle School) is eliciting heartfelt, and even tearful, complaints from parents for distributing a sexually graphic survey to kids as young as 11 or 12 years old. (Parents found out about the survey too late to ask for permission to exempt their children from taking it.)

First of all, the survey asked the children to indicate their gender, giving them an array of choices including “Transgender (M to F)” and “Transgender (F to M)”. The survey then asked “How do you identify yourself?”, giving children choices such as “Bisexual” and “Not sure/questioning” and “Other.”

Parents are raising concerns about age-appropriateness. After all, how many 11 year olds do you know who understand what a male-to-female transgender is? But that’s not even the worst of it. The survey also included explicit questions, such as:

*”How sure are you that you … Know the difference between oral, vaginal, and anal sex?”

*”How sure are you that you … Can convince a reluctant partner to use barrier protection (i.e., condoms, dental dams) during sex?”
*“How old were you the first time you had sex (oral, vaginal, or anal sex)?”

According to this news report, some of the children were emotionally distraught, even traumatized, by questions that confused them and introduced them to adult topics they did not understand. Some children reportedly had to ask for definitions.

“Children ventured guesses as the instructor—brought in on a DCPS [DC Public Schools] contract—started to define ‘anal sex’ and ‘oral sex.’ ” Afterward, “upset parents called, texted and e-mailed each other to try to understand what had happened. One child was so upset by the test, a parent told The Georgetown Dish, he hyperventilated.”

The survey was developed by a local advocacy group called Metro TeenAIDS, which thus far has remained unapologetic, telling Fox News that most of those 12-year-olds are much more experienced sexually than parents might think. (The group might want to check its stats on that—Focus’ sexual health analyst, Chad Hills, says that statistics from the Youth Risk Behavior Surveillance Survey show that, actually, only about 6 percent of all children nationally report having had sexual intercourse before age 13. Hardly a majority that warrants giving every 7th grader a sexually explicit survey.

But this illustrates a larger trend that’s frightening—it’s yet another example in a growing list of incidents involving public schools and advocacy groups foisting a highly sexualized, adult agenda onto young children in the name of trying to protect them—whether their parents like it or not. ( It brings to mind, for instance, the recent controversy in Helena, Montana, where a school board wanted to introduce condom instruction to 5th graders and homosexuality lessons to kids as young as first grade. Or the survey given to high school students in Wisconsin a few years back, which asked them: “If you have never slept with someone of your same gender, then how do you know you wouldn’t prefer it?”)

At Focus on the Family, we believe parents are the ones who have the most intimate knowledge of their children—and as such they should have the legal authority to direct when, how and if their young children are exposed to controversial and personalized sexual questions. Schools and
advocacy groups are not the ones who comfort these children at night, after they’ve felt their privacy and innocence grossly invaded and overstepped by strangers in their public school classroom during the day.

So the question must continue to be raised, do “surveys” like these actually protect kids—or further desensitize them in a way that makes them more vulnerable to violations of sexual boundaries?

Damned, for once I am shocked to hear about this turn of events. I talked with my children about certain things when I knew it was the right time it discuss it with them. It is not the school's responsibility to usurp the responsibilities of a parent. That is unless the parent has the child in a boarding school. Even then the parent has to sign permission papers to say he or she will allow the school to teach sex education to their child.

If the parents want to sue the crap out of the school and the school district, I would back them on that.
Question. I have who allowed this survey to be given to the students and what is the policy in the school district was this survey approved by the board members and if it was parents should have been notified so the students could opt out these schools are to educate the children that's their job only
Those poor kids. This is a form of emotional abuse and the parents should sue the school.
I agree with you Suzann this is not appropriate. For young students. To have a survey like this with. Out patent consent
Actually, according to the standards that were in practice while I was in therapy for sexual abuse, that's exactly what that would be considered: sexual abuse of the children! 7th graders SHOULDN'T know the answers to such questions, and shouldn't be being "tested" on them at school!
It sounds to me like sexual asault on children. I beleive they are as bad as perverts showing their private parts at a public park. I tell you if I had children these days they wouldn't be teaching my child.
At what point is the line crossed and this considered sexual abuse? Just because a child isn't touched, doesn't mean they do not suffer from trauma. When the old man doesn't touch the little girl, but gives her a lesson in masturbation, that's abuse. When he talks to her about anal sex, it's abuse. When he asks her if she prefers oral sex, it's abuse. But if the school does it, it's okay. Go figure.

This highlights the reason I will not bear children until I can afford to homeschool them.
I have a 'Survey" I'd like the Teachers to take on their "Sexual Beliefs".
And then I would post, with names, in the local paper.
But then, that would just give them more "Dates" from the perverts that like that sort of junk.
I know that many of you ask the question, “How did this happen? Who authorized this?” Well… you did!
You did through your tolerance and apathy.
You did by putting your own personal needs before that of your children.
You did by letting your children spend countless hours in front of the TV and their video games, so long as they were quiet and out of your hair.
You did by putting your emphasis on the SUV in front of your McMansion, which the government has you believing that you can not only afford, but are entitled to as well.
You did by worrying more about the ‘big game’ or who got kicked off the Island or who’s the Survivor or who’s boffing who in Hollywood, rather than attending a school board meeting.
You did by spending your time playing on-line video games rather than writing to your state and local representatives.
You did by not voting.
You did by being comfortable with and accepting the status quo.
You did by not reading the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, the Declaration of Independence; and God forbid… the Bible.
You did by allowing the government to dictate terms and make changes to the Constitution that have slowly eroded your God given rights and freedoms.
You did by letting the state run education system dictate terms as to what is and is not morally objectionable.
You did by letting them tell you that you, the parents, do not have the qualifications of a state trained teacher, thus eliminating home schooling in many states.
You did by removing all traces of God and morality from our classrooms, our media and our society as a whole.
You did by drinking the Kool-Aid.

Me? I’m a Tea-totaler.

Teaching sex education to children and young people only teaches the children bizzare sexual practices and how to
engage in them.
Only a parent or trusted family member should teach a child about sex and be there to answer any questions.
Parents who allow this are parents who have no idea just how bad things are in the public school systems.
Jo Dermody

According to the state, no parent is as qualified as a state certified public school teacher. This is why many states have either banned home schooling or have made it so difficult that most parents just give up.

They also cite the benefits of interaction with other students. Their interaction consists of texting each other. Now there’s real interaction.

Besides, I don’t want my kid learning “Street-Speak” or wearing his pants below the crack of his butt or learning that telling me to go F___ myself is his right.

If I ever said that to my father, there wouldn’t have been enough left of me for a dental records check…. As it should be!

Laus Deo
We need to vigilantly pray because our country will never be the same again.
God Bless America!
