Coercive Indoctrination or Sex Education?

The controversial books "King & King" & "Who's in a family" were on the hot-seat in Lexington, MA yesterday, as two sets of parents filed suit in US District Court in Boston against the principal, the superintendent, and other school officials.

The lawsuit stems from the two controversial books being taught to a couple of school-aged children. The Wirthlin's second grade son and David Parker's kindergarten aged son were read the stories during class time without any parental notification given to the parents regarding the material that focuses on sexual orientations and different types of families including those that are headed by same-sex "parents".
''I think it's right to have books and materials that reflect the children in our school," Lexington Principal Joni Jay said in an interview earlier this week. ''We're not talking about sex here. We are talking about families."
Let's back up for just one second here. So books about same-sex "weddings" and same-sex families are being read to second grade and kindergarten aged children? Why are weddings and different types of families being taught to this age group? Never mind the sexual orientations of the characters in the stories, Lexington schools are talking about ADULT themes to young children. I don't remember being taught about weddings or about families until I was at least in middle school sitting in a sociology class.
Why is it that we are all of a sudden teaching about sexual orientations to children? Does it really have to do with teaching them about diversity and tolerance or does it have to do with a Los Angeles PR firms recommended agenda of “equality” in which is the case with the homosexual community’s fight for equal rights?
Why do children need to be coercively indoctrinated about homosexuality? When a topic, such as sexual orientations or even a math equation, is TAUGHT in schools impressionable CHILDREN are going to think that the lesson is useful knowledge and something they should believe in or possibly experiment with and use in their daily lives. I can see how an arithmetic lesson could be useful in life but why would we want our young children to experiment with different types of sexual orientations? I have presented a similar question on a previous post of mine and have not received an honest and irrefutable answer.
"Students begin drawing pictures and writing stories about their families in kindergarten, and at some point a child will sit next to a classmate who has two mothers, and that's going to prompt questions" Jay said.
It is also going to prompt states of confusion. Shouldn’t the schools that have students with same-sex parents be telling those students who have 'questions' about someone that they should ask their parents about their concerns? Why is it that schools are answering questions regarding the sacred institution of marriage and the issues of sexual orientations? When did the schools start being the primary ‘parents’ to our children? Do not give me the argument that many parents are not going to talk about these issues at home. How can they, everything is being done in the schools without the parents knowing about it.

How is the media in MA handling this issue? Do parents who are not necessarily following the gay marriage debate aware of this?

The media in MA is all over this issue like 'white on rice' Jennifer.

The weak argument that is proposed is that if these books are deemed offensive by parents than "Little Red Riding Hood" should be yanked because it has themes of transgenderism with a male wolf dressing up as an old lady. "Cinderella" is another fairytale that should be banned from the classroom as well as it depicts beastiality as a result of Cinderella kissing a frog.

It is just ridiculous with how many different avenues and translations people can come up with.

I ask a question to those who hold these translations of fairytales:

When did you ever have a teacher read you "Cinderella" or "Little Red Riding Hood" in a classroom setting? Yes, there are many fairytales in the libraries of schools, but when did you ever hear them in the classroom?

These fairytales where introduced at home, not in the schoolhouse.

So yes Jennifer, parents who are not following the gay “marriage” debate know about stories like these, except they are only getting the agenda driven journalism side of the story.

The mainstream media’s agenda is if you tell a lie enough times it will become the truth. Funny, the Nazi’s used the same concept.

Thanks for answering my question. So then, hopefully, more parents like the two in your post will stand up for their children.

I agree with you that this whole thing about Cinderella and Little Red Riding Hood is absurd. Even IF they were read in a K or 2nd grade classroom, unless the TEACHER pointed out the off the wall interpretations the children would NOT come away from hearing those stories thinking anything of the like.

The continued downward spiral into utter absurdity is disheartening. Thank you for the stand you are taking.

Thanks for stopping by.

It's funny how intolerant homosexuals are when it comes to traditional family values or extreme views like a man and a woman getting married.

Forget about sex-education...how about teaching history, geography, reading, writing or something useful that is completely neutral?
