This is outrageous. "Educators" in Hawaii say they can't show a state legislator their sex-ed curriculum because it's too confusing and he might misinterpret it. But it's fine for 11 year olds?
Not only does it promote the homosexual lifestyle, it also goes into detail about oral and anal sex. Perfect for 11 year olds, right?
Rep. Bob McDermott (R, Ewa-Iroquois Point) said he heard from concerned parents during the state's debate over marriage equality that middle school students were being taught about same-sex relationships and oral and anal sex as part of the curriculum for a pilot sex education program called Pono Choices.Nutjobs.
It is one of seven programs approved by the Department of Education for middle schools to use for sexual health education. It was funded by the federal Office of Adolescent Health and developed by the University of Hawaii at Manoa Center on Disability Studies to help reduce teen pregnancies and prevent sexually transmitted infections.
McDermott said he asked the state Department of Education this week for copies of the curriculum, including teacher lesson plans, student workbooks and handouts, but was denied. He said the University of Hawaii also denied his request for materials.
"It's outrageous that a state legislator ... as an elected official and a father of public school children, cannot get this information," he told reporters at the state Capitol Wednesday.
McDermott said he was invited to instead review the materials with supervision, which he declined.
Holding up an enlarged copy of a student's worksheet provided by a parent, he said he's troubled that students are being asked to define such terms as anal sex and oral sex.
It used to be when someone talked dirty to kids they got a pop in the chops and a quick trip to the hoosegow. Now they get federal funds.
