If you missed the disgusting sex-ed that Hawaii was teaching its 11-year-olds, never fear. It’s back.
In December, we wrote about “Pono Choices” a program that teaches sex-ed to middle school students aged 11, 12 and 13.
The program claims to reduce the number of teen pregnancies and incidents of sexually transmitted diseases. Perhaps, but they do it by teaching about anal sex, homosexual sex and oral sex.
After complaints, the program was pulled for “modification.”
Now it’s back with a few minor changes (more on that below) but one major change: Students are being bribed to participate in the program with $10 and $20 gift cards.
Administers of “Pono Choices” claim the “research” is designed to get feedback through the student surveys. But one local lawmaker doesn’t buy it.
“This is a shameless manipulation of the data – giving 11-year-old kids a $10 dollar gift card, and then asking them how they liked the program,” Rep. Bob McDermott said.
“Hawaii’s parents are in the unique situation of having their own tax dollars used to propagandize the ‘value’ of this deceptive intrusion into their public schools, to ‘sell’ them on a program they didn’t ask for and don’t want. Paying to be brainwashed so you will consent to pay more to have your children brainwashed is not a good use of tax dollars.”McDermott has a 12-year-old son in public school.
McDermott said families were told Pono Choices was a “new curriculum” being tested or a “pilot project,” but were never told their students were participating in a research project.
“Their kids were being used as human subjects for research. This is a horrible breach of trust between the DOE and the owners of the system, the parents,” McDermott said.The curriculum still teaches about anal, oral and homosexual sex … the changes they made were relatively minor. They did stop classifying the “anus” as a “genital,” which seems appropriate to change and wildly inappropriate to teach to 11 year-olds anyway – especially when they talk about anal sex.
