California enacted the California Healthy Youth Act in 2015, but only now are its controversial provisions starting to take effect in classrooms. Under the auspices of health, the law says it will equip students to develop “healthy attitudes” on “gender [and] sexual orientation,” among other things. It also says it will inform students about the “effectiveness and safety of all FDA-approved contraceptive methods,” and facilitate “objective discussion” about “parenting, adoption, and abortion.”

RedState contributor Kira Davis, a resident of Orange County, California, warns that among the teaching materials approved for use under this law are a study guide for the transgender children’s book I Am Jazz, as well as a “sexual health toolkit.”

This “toolkit,” funded in part by the George Soros-connected Tides Center, offers kids tips on using sex toys and anal lubricant. It defines “anal intercourse,” “phone sex,” and more as “common sexual behaviors.” It teaches that “abstinence” and “virginity” can mean engaging in a variety of sexual activities, but stopping short of intercourse.

“What if you don’t have time or money to buy sex toys?” the guide asks on page C-51. “Cucumbers, carrots, and bananas (with the peel) make great dildos. Just remember to use a condom!”

It teaches that one of the “cons” of abstaining from all sexual activity is that it “requires motivation, self-control and communication from both partners.”

The “toolkit” lists as resources Planned Parenthood and the radically pro-homosexual and pro-abortion group Advocates for Youth....


Orange County School District won't allow students to opt out:

In a memo dated March 29 to the Orange County Board of Education, Orange County Department of Education general counsel Ronald Wenkart says that the law’s opt-out provision “does not apply to instruction, materials, or programming that discusses gender, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, discrimination, harassment, bullying, intimidation, relationships, or family and does not discuss human reproductive organs.”

Parents who disagree with the state’s LGBT positions “may not excuse their children from this instruction,” Wenkart continues. He then suggests that parents still having the right to “advise their children that they disagree with” such lessons compensates for this restriction.

He also cites judicial precedent to claim that “parents do not have a constitutional right to excuse their children from portions of the school curriculum that they find objectionable.”

It's not that easy. If your kids are in these schools, you seem to have lost your rights as parents.

Reason #2,675,329 why we're home schooling our kids.

If the law in question made this instruction mandatory in public schools, then this school district is correct as far as what the law says. There are grounds on which it could be challenged, e.g. religious families, but the reality of California and 9th Circuit courts is that challengers will lose in every court up to the US Supreme Court, at which point they might have a chance for a fair hearing. And that process will take YEARS.

Speaking in all seriousness, the promiscuity and alphabet-soup-sexuality activists are running the PS asylum. The only outs are private schools, homeschools (which under CA are private schools or Independent Study Programs of campus-based private schools), or, for those who have credentials for the grades they teach, tutoring.

The sad reality of this world is that there is pretty much nothing well-intended or decent that malign people and activists cannot worm their way in and hijack to their malignant purposes. In the case of PSs it started in the 60s or 50s, with activists of multiple agendas; their agenda was greater than the education of children to lead productive lives, so children became their ideological cannon fodder.

Im a little surprised and very disappointed that Orange County which is highly conservative is pushing this.

So much for the lie from the gay mafia that they just want acceptance and that they are not forcing their lifestyle upon us...

Sacramento rammed it down the throats of every public school district in the state. Orange County had a choice between violating or complying with state law. I'm not saying I agree with the law, just that it is the law until common sense somehow manages to overturn it.

Pretty much. The Ds have a super-majority, so if they all vote party line the few Rs are irrelevant.
