Liberals go too far with textbooks

The Westford Public School District in Massachusetts has a bad idea. Each year, the district sends a letter to elementary school parents with a list of resources for students that it recommends they consult to complete their sex ed curriculum. One of the books he recommends is Sex is a funny word : A Book about bodies, feelings and YOU by Cory Silverberg. The district recommends this book for ages eight to 10. I found out when I filed public records requests for sex ed programs for nearly every school district in the state for NewBostonPost a few months ago.


I read the book. This confirmed what I assumed: it’s disturbing.


The book contains cartoons of genitals, tells children about masturbation and the differences between a boy and a girl. It doesn’t tell them it’s the chromosomes and the genitals. It tells children that they can choose their sex and that their gender identity now might not be their gender identity later.


A school district should not recommend a book to eight-year-olds that contains drawings of genitalia. If that was the worst part of the book, that’s reason enough for a school district not to recommend it. I’ve seen many claim that teaching minors to masturbate constitutes grooming. At the very least, it’s immoral. Abuse in the porn industry is rampant.


And transgender stuff is unforgivable. Eight-year-olds don’t need to know the intricate details of what makes someone male or female. It would be bad enough if the book said: men have penises and XY chromosomes and women have vaginas and XX chromosomes. Instead, the book explains the woke ideology of the genre.


Transgender handouts for kids usually state that if they identify with the opposite sex, that makes them a member of the opposite sex (or they can identify with a made-up gender on Tumblr ). This strangely reinforces traditional gender roles. For example, if a boy likes pink, plays with dolls, and likes to knit, he’s doing things typically associated with girls. That doesn’t make him a girl. Biology has already decided it.


Although some people suffer from gender dysphoria and deserve compassion, we don’t know what causes it. Content like this is also why I don’t understand why every time a school board or library says a book doesn’t belong in a school, it becomes national news. We hear spiel about book burning and Nazis. However, sometimes school boards screw up and impose something that doesn’t belong. Would love to see the liberal reaction if a school wanted kids to read Charles Murray The bell curve or another controversial right-wing headline.


As we continue to hear about critical race theory, I expect this so-called comprehensive sex education will soon become a bigger issue. The Supreme Court could overturn Roe vs. Wade this year and return the abortion law to the states—or he could maintain 15-week bans. Proponents of legal abortion often say that comprehensive sex education (which I do not support) and expanded access to birth control (which I support) are what the country needs to reduce the abortion rate. People may think comprehensive sex education sounds good. However, people could do what I do in one of the most liberal states in the country and research programs. Schools don’t need this CSE waste.


Some elected liberals and progressives, many of whom are Democrats, think showing eight-year-olds pictures of nude people and telling them they can change their gender is okay. They think teaching 12 year olds to eat ass is okay because Planned Parenthood says so. They think it’s okay to teach kids that there are unlimited genders. They think it’s okay to tell children that abortion prevents pregnancy; anyone who argues that it is legal does not want society to view it as a form of birth control.


Politically, playing with education is a losing strategy for liberals and democrats alike. Inflation is high. President Joe Biden’s approval rating is currently in the toilet. And local politicians pushing woke ideology on children helped Glenn Youngkin become governor of Virginia last November. Liberals can’t control Biden’s approval rating and inflation isn’t entirely Biden’s fault. However, they may stop being weird in schools. And I say liberals because my state Republican, Sen. Pat O’Connor (R-Weymouth) supports a bill that would update the state’s sex-ed curriculum to include this woke trash. The letters after people’s names don’t tell you everything; a few of my favorite state representatives are Democrats.


Instead, being weird puts the National Democratic Party at a disadvantage in November. So while Medicare cheat and Sen. Rick Scott (R-FL) wants to scrap welfare benefits for single moms and raise taxes on 60% of the country, Democrats will have to play defense against the stupid, unpopular people who support their party in public. education.
