Sex Ed in MA

MFI believes that the best place for youth to learn about sex is in the home, within the context of a loving and trusting parent-child relationship. Parents are the primary teachers of their children and as such, they are uniquely qualified to provide the moral framework needed for healthy sex education. In our hyper-sexualized culture, students receive many negative messages about sex. Meaningful conversations with parents are the most effective way to counteract these destructive messages and to equip and empower young people to remain abstinent until marriage.

We do acknowledge that not every student has the support they need at home and some students might benefit from biologically based sex education in school. Research has shown that Sexual Risk Avoidance (SRA) programs produce the best outcomes by encouraging youth to avoid risky behaviors that lead to emotional, physical, and spiritual harm. SRA programs emphasize developing healthy relationships and delaying sexual activity until marriage, communicating the clear message that sexual delay is the only 100% effective way to avoid pregnancy, STIs and other negative consequences of teen sex.

Unfortunately, instead of implementing a healthy SRA approach to sex ed in our public schools, our state legislature, the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE), Planned Parenthood, and others are pushing to mandate a much different approach to sex ed through the use of Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE) curriculum. CSE is a specific type of graphic sexuality education that promotes sexual rights for children and serves as a how-to manual, encouraging teens to become sexually active. In fact, nearly 1 in 4 teens who receive this type of sex ed say that it makes them feel like having sex is an expectation. Equally concerning is that CSE is designed to change the sexual and gender norms of society by promoting diverse sexualities and perpetuating the dangerous transgender trend affecting our youth.

Currently in the Commonwealth, teaching sex ed is at the discretion of local school districts and those that do choose to teach it have full control over what curriculum they use. If our legislators and Planned Parenthood have their way though, local control will be taken away and put into the hands of bureaucrats. The Sex-Ed Mandate, SB 2459 and HB 410, give full authority to DESE to dictate the use of only CSE curriculum for those districts who decide to include sex ed in their health lessons. The MA State Senate passed this legislation with a 33-2 vote on January 16, 2020. The House version of the bill has not yet been brought for a vote.

In an effort to mobilize a grassroots movement of parents and concerned citizens to sound the alarm about the implementation of CSE in our schools and to push back against the loss of local control over educational decisions, the Massachusetts Informed Parents (MIP) initiative was launched in the fall of 2019 as an outreach of MFI. MIP endeavors to equip parents to protect their kids through the sharing of relevant information, including articles, research, and exhibits from the curriculum, and by providing tools and strategies for helping parents to effect change in their local communities. MIP is growing a large coalition of parents and faith and community leaders by leveraging the power of social media and by fostering one on one relationships through parent forums being held across the state. To stay informed on issues related to sex education and for updates on the Sex-Ed Mandate legislation, join the MIP group on FB. Contact Mary Ellen Siegler if you would like to schedule a parent forum for your church or community group.

🔥 WARNING – GRAPHIC CONTENT 🔥

Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE) does not refer to sex education in general, but rather to a specific type of graphic sex education that is designed to change the sexual and gender norms of society. CSE promotes "sexual rights" and the "right to sexual pleasure" for youth and purports to advocate for sexual health for teens. But you determine for yourself if the kind of content being included or if the types of resources kids are referred to will increase their health. Keep reading.

The Sexuality Information and Education Council of the United States or SIECUS is a major pusher of explicit CSE. Contrary to the official sound of their name, they are NOT a federal agency, but an advocacy organization that works in partnership with groups like Planned Parenthood, Advocates for Youth, Sex Positive Families, and many others to promote the use of pornographic CSE in our nation’s schools.

SIECUS standards were used by the MA Department of Elementary and Secondary Education in writing the health frameworks. The frameworks provide guidelines for schools on what should be covered in sex education.

Take a look at this article posted on SIECUS’s FB page, 5 Stigma- Busting Accounts to Follow this #LetsTalk Month. bit.ly/2HiT9kP

SIECUS is ALL about de-stigmatizing all things sexual, including STIs, sex work, masturbation for children, sexting, and more. Sexelducation is one of the social media accounts recommended in the above mentioned article. Take a look at some of the screenshots I grabbed from Sexelducation. Here are the low-lights:

1. Encourages sexting and suggests taking photos or videos to text as "sex play"
2. Suggests meeting up with a stranger
3. Encourages casual sex
4. Normalizes STIs
5. Promotes masturbation
6. Promotes the use of sex toys
7. Undermines family and traditional values

Is this the kind of content that will promote health and well-being for our children? Most parents understand that sexualizing a young person with this kind of pornographic content is not healthy OR ethical. CSE is not sex education. It is grooming.

Oppose CSE in your school district. Opt your child out. Find a sample opt out letter to use in the files section of this group.

This is unconscionable!

Too scary

Mary Calderone, major architect of contemporary sex education and former Director of Sex Information & Education Council of US said: “The real question facing sex education is this: What kind of person do we want to produce to take the place of human nature as we know it today? And how do we design the production line to create this advanced creature? ….the best thing we can do for our children is to prepare them to view all notions of right and wrong as tentative, changing, and relative. Then, loosed from the old values, they can be inculcated with the values of a scientifically trained elite (consisting of ‘professionals’ like herself, of course) who know what makes a human being truly healthy.” How Now Shall We Live, Charles Colson pages 241-242

Why the hell is any of this in public schools?

Ridiculous, disgusting what this world turned into. Vote RED, vote REPUBLICANS THEY MIGHT SLOW THIS PROCESS DOWN. DEMOCRATS WILL SPEED IT UP AS THEY WERE DOING IT BEFORE.

People need to start returning to the power of God. Start asking Him back into their lives and into their families. You know, it seems the more they pushed God out of the mouths of the people in our country the more it really affected our ability to make a righteous stand against these evils. And make no mistake. This is evil. But more so, its spiritual. It covers over the minds of people like a virus and this is the result. Start praying again folks.

Has no one ever watched 13 reasons why? The girls life was ruined and she killed herself and it all started with a pic text that he took (where she still had clothes on) sexting should never be encouraged, especially for girls who are more typically victimized. School aged relationships don’t last and kids are mean and impulsive when they get hurt. Only an idiot would think telling middle and high school aged kids to sext is a good idea.

Ya because Genitial Herpes isn’t painful at all with bursting stinging boils on your vaginal /private parts. Casual encounters lead to this … teens should be taught to not have sex until marriage /or at least a form of deep commitment… Imagine having open skin/painful blisters all over the outside of your vagina or penis, the one night stand wouldn’t be worth it .. They should be teaching how painful mentally, financially and physically it is to be a single mother /father. I belong to many mom groups and the emotional pain is the worst to feel abandoned by the person who was suppose to love and care for you and your child the most .. many men cheat while their woman is pregnant, beat them while pregnant, the numbers are staggering.. I guess they don’t care about the dangers of casual sex because you know Abortion just kills the innocent baby and solves all the teenagers problems right ? Don’t teach about the horrible lifelong regret of killing your first blood child in your womb .. I’m so disgusted with our society

This goes against everything I am teaching my middle school aged daughter. Never take pictures of your private parts, never mind send them to someone else. I told her that I wouldn't even do that with my husband. They want kids to sext… more pictures for the pedophiles to possibly obtain. Yet another way to desensitize society.

Where is Secretary of Education Betsy Devos on this. I would like to share some of this with her.

So, I was just scrolling on FB and look what appeared in my feed. I took a screen shot. Advocates for Youth, Planned Parenthood ally, recruiting girls ages 11-14 to participate in a birth control pill study presupposes those girls are sexually active OR encourages them to become sexually active. They. Are. Paying. Them. Unethical, despicable, criminal, and predatory. 😡😡😡

BTW, AfY’s comprehensive sexuality education curriculum, the 3Rs, is being used in some MA schools. Find out if it’s in your school district. If it is, email me at massinformedparents@gmail.com.

Comment on Facebook So, I was just …

Parental consent?

Will it never end?

What!!!! 11-14!!!

Evil

I think the purple skin is a good indication of the evil

They should be prosecuted.

Criminal!!!

Criminal!

This is beyond disgusting.

Fire and brimstone.

The Devil's workshop 👹

These people are sick!

It’s Criminal, Sick & Just Plain. Evil. They are overstepping boundaries & should be arrested. Parents need to be teaching their children about these predators & teaching them at a Young age .

Thats not necessarily true. I was put on birthday control at 11 due to unbearable mental cycles and it was the ONLY thing that worked. Noone is telling them to get out there and have sex. Some also use birth control for acne treatment.

How is paying other people's Minor Children to take drugs LEGAL?!

Some girls that age haven’t even started menstruating yet. I was a few months away from 13 when I started. My OBGYN said she doesn’t give BC to girls until they’ve been menstruating for 2 years.

Mary Siegler, there was an arrest just made of a 18 year old molesting his 7 year old cousin during a Zoom class, teacher and classmates witnessed it. I had not thought of this before, with the attempt by PP to teach young children that sexual pleasure is a right, how vulnerable to sexual assault will hundreds of thousands of younger children become in their own home??

🔥 WARNING: GRAPHIC CONTENT 🔥

‘Sex positive’ is a term that I keep coming across as I research Comprehensive Sexuality Education curricula. Many of the groups that promote CSE, like Planned Parenthood, Advocates for Youth, SIECUS, and others use this descriptor. If you look it up online the definition reads: ‘having or promoting an open, tolerant, or progressive attitude towards sex and sexuality.’

I have attached screenshots of posts from the FB group Sex Positive Education. These graphics will give you an idea of what is considered ‘sex positive.’

Here’s a list of some of what is included (not an exhaustive list):

1. Dangerous transgender ideology
2. BDSM – bondage, discipline (or domination), sadism, and masochism (as a type of sexual practice)
3. Normalization of STIs
4. Normalization of non-monogamous relationships and polyamory
5. Using sex toys
6. How to engage in oral sex

So, is this the type of content you think your child should be exposed to in school? This isn’t education. It is grooming. STOP CSE NOW!

Thank you for sharing!

As someone who had an STI 5 years ago it’s not something you want to talk about. It’s embarrassing. I got it from a cheating partner and I didn’t even know he was cheating on me.

To be honest, I’m glad my kids are all grown. This is so disturbing 😡

This is insane

they need to stop this madness!!!!!!!

Pure insanity!

WTF!!!!!

complete indoctrination

So confusing for our children

When should I start checking school? My oldest is in 4th Grade. Any one here from Framingham or Wayland area?

‼️ 🔥 Attention Parents – Beware of Planned Parenthood and Social Emotional Learning 🔥 ‼️

Planned Parenthood gains access to students in MA schools in multiple ways, through their Comprehensive Sexuality Education curriculum taught in about 150 schools across the state, by partnering with organizations like Girls Inc. and Advocates for Youth who also push CSE curriculum, by recruiting students to become peer sex educators in the schools through their Get Real Teen Council program, and by offering training and classes for teachers, just to name a few.

See the training they are offering to educators below. This webinar will help teachers learn how to incorporate Social Emotional Learning (SEL) into sex education classes.

SEL is the vehicle being used to psychologically prepare your students to accept sexual orientation and transgender identity lessons by focusing on feelings as facts and doing away with the notion of objective truth, like believing that there is such a thing as male and female and that no one is born in the wrong body.

SEL replaces parents and seeks to capture the heart and mind of your child. Parents don’t suspect a thing, because SEL teaches things like kindness, empathy, and compassion – all values that are important to all of us.

But, SEL uses these shared values to manipulate children into rejecting what their parents have taught them about sex and gender. SEL teaches that kindness, empathy, and compassion requires consensus on issues of sex and gender. SEL promotes group think. Disagreement = hate.

Is Planned Parenthood in your child’s district? Has your child’s health teacher ever attended a training by PP? Find out.

Opt your child out of CSE classes. Use the sample Opt Out form found in the files section of this group.

The SEL is running rampant on distance (virtual) "learning". It takes up the first hour of the day. It even includes yoga for mindfulness. I may be the only one here to say this, but I'm not a big fan of the teachers calling the children "my friends" . To me it seems like they're putting themselves at the same level as the children. When they should be at a level of mentorship.

Haven't seen anything on sex ed….. yet.

Thank you for all your work that reveals the agenda of SEL and sex Ed.

Wow it's crazy. We are new to public schools system. How do we find out b which schools have those program? Do we just ask the school we are in?

We know if our school is one that’s participating

When can we start the witch trials again?

Hey Mary, What grades are they presenting this to?

I was a teen advisory board member 30 years ago for PP and we only went to schools in which we were invited. Usually to help peers become better educated in safety regarding things they were already doing. We were invited by the schools that typically did not have the ability to teach safety because of some communities back then believing that abstinence only methods were the best. Which we knew then and definitely know now are not. The people we listened to and helped answer questions were in attendance because they wanted to be our their parents wanted them to be. Don't believe they are there to control kids minds, they are there to support and help those make safer and better decisions if the situations arise.

PARENTS BEWARE, is sex on the school calendar in your district?

All year long there is a day, week, or sometimes even month set aside to promote sexual ideology. Many public schools advertise and promote these national and international events.

When you look at these events listed together in the info graph posted below, the picture becomes very clear. There is a real and persistent agenda aimed at sexualizing our children and pushing dangerous and harmful transgender ideology on them.

Schools need to go back to teaching academics and stop inundating our children with sexual content.

Parents, it is time to show up and speak up to protect our kids. If we don’t, who will?

Special thanks to Linda Harvey of Mission America who gathered these dates. A link to her website is below in the comments.

Deedee Clark Dorrington FYI.

Oh my

Why do they get so many days and weeks? This has nothing to do with school.

Heather Hamelin

This type of corrupt school board system should be dismantled.

The original source for this is our Mission America article from last September. We just updated all this information! www.missionamerica.com/article/school-corruption-propaganda-calendar/

Mary do you know what districts these are in MA?

Ugh

I don’t understand this was this document made by Massachusetts informed parents? Is it a mock document to point out what our children are being taught?

What ever happen to children learning Math History. Not sex let them make those choices on their own. When old Enough to do so. Don’t shove it down these throats . So grateful my grandchildren go to Catholic Schools. I have a boy genius. In school skipped a grade. Because his parents watch everything he does and gets reports. Thank God My son and daughter in law. Are wonderful Parents !!!!!what ever my grandkids choose is find with me. Love them to the moon and back ! School is not what it use to be , sad that today’s kids go threw this because someone wants to make a choose for them 😢

In our school in Winchester they are promoting this kind of crap.

While I understand that this should not be taught in such length I do however see ma ny closed minds after reading the article. For example "So, if the goal is to reduce harm, why not discourage prostitution among gender confused people (usually males posing as females)? There are other jobs out there, folks" a majority of people are not gender confused. This is who they are and should be embraced like every individual. Please be .sure to talk to your children regarding these differences in all people

This is so sick

Thank you!
