Teachers from a Southern California school district are allegedly teaching children through health education textbooks that 10 sexual orientations and eight genders exist.
Fox New Digital reported that a textbook called “Comprehensive Health Skills for High School” ordered by the Newport-Mesa Unified School District makes such claims about gender and sexuality.
Alicia Beget, a mother with a child enrolled in the district, told Fox News Digital that the education system is sexualizing children by normalizing sexual behavior at a young age.
“We are placing them in a situation where they think that this is safe, that this is healthy, this is how we show love,” Beget said. “And so they are being exploited by very evil people.”
“This is part of a larger agenda that those at the very top are well aware of what they’re doing,” she added.
Teaching kids that their sexual orientation is separate from their gender identity, one textbook lists eight genders that include agender, androgynous, and bigender. Other identities listed are cisgender, gender fluid, and gender non-conforming. And to further confuse the kids, the book provides an option for them to be gender questioning.
On the sexual orientation front, the book also describes 10 different preferences.
Aside from hetero, homo, and bisexual orientations, the curriculum includes androsexual, polysexual, skoliosexual, demisexual, pansexual, gynesexual, and asexual.
Newport-Mesa district was also exposed previously by Fox New Digitial, which found that the district uses a “Genderbread Identity” man in sex education class.
Public records request by the news channel discovered that the district uses the so-called “Genderbread Identity” man to teach middle and high school students about what it’s like to be a transgender person in high school.
The character appears in a purchased curriculum called “Teen Talk,” which thousands of California students learn.
In response to Fox News Digital, the district said it follows the state-adopted health education standards, including sexual health.
“We use a state-approved health curriculum with select modules, taught by credentialed teachers. Parents can opt out their child from participating in comprehensive sex education. Parents also have the ability to review all curriculum taught in our schools so that they can be well-informed and make the best decisions for their child. We understand that there are varying viewpoints and beliefs, and we follow California State Standards for curriculum while also supporting parent choice.”
