California Parents Pull Children Out of School to Protest State’s ‘Gender-Inclusive’ Sex Education Curriculum Promoting Transgenderism and Masturbation

Parents across California kept their children out of school on Friday to protest the state’s sex-ed curriculum that supports the belief that some people are born in the wrong body and can change their sex.

Those are just two topics being taught to children as part of the state’s “gender-inclusive” comprehensive sex education curriculum and related materials.

Parents in the Golden state are resisting the implementation of the California Healthy Youth Act (AB 329), particularly Comprehensive Sex Education, and many decided to withdraw their children from school on Friday.

In addition to keeping their children home from school, parents across the state gathered at their respective County Board of Education buildings to protest public school system overreach, including the teaching of “gender-fluid theory” to pre-kindergartners, said the Informed Parents of California in a statement shared with CP on Friday.

The group said that AB 329 is a model for other organizations that back these kinds of curriculum materials that sexualize children and promote destructive social change that undermine families.

“We will not tolerate the state’s overt attempts to push their extreme and damaging agenda,” IPOC founder Stephanie Yates said. “We will not allow our kids to be sexualized in the classroom and our parental rights stripped. We will not allow our children’s hearts and minds to be stolen and used for political social experiments and radical activist agendas. We will stop at nothing to protect our kids.”

The materials also assert that biological sex is not necessarily determined by DNA but is “assigned at birth,” Yates added.

In California, school officials are being pressured to accept the health education framework under threat of lawsuits from the ACLU and other groups, sources told CP on Thursday, noting that not every school administrator is so familiar with the actual flexibility they have legally at the district level, and schools generally want to avoid negative attention.

Writing at the Federalist on Wednesday, Mary Hasson of the Washington-based Ethics & Public Policy Center noted that transgender activists are publishing educational materials arguing that puberty is “gender-inclusive.”

Activists at Gender Spectrum — a group whose stated mission is to “create a gender-inclusive world for all children and youth” by helping “families, organizations, and institutions increase understandings of gender and consider the implications that evolving views have for each of us” — released a publication earlier this year called “Principles of Gender-Inclusive Puberty and Health Education.”
