Brainwashing.. Sex Ed for Kindergarteners?

According to an article on Foxnews.com, a Helena, Montana school board of trustees is considering a sex education curriculum that would begin in kindergarten. Kindergarten! A child of that age should be learning how to behave in school, not clinical terms for body parts.

Outrageous as this is; it gets worse. First graders would learn that sex could occur between same gender couples. I think I was learning how to count money and tell time in first grade.

The coup de grace in all of this is when they get to learn about the difference places those clinical body parts can go and what can be done with them. Those lucky kids would be in about fourth grade.

What are these people thinking?! Children at such tender ages do not have the ability to handle such information nor can it possibly be healthy. It is the parent's job and right to know and decide when it is the right time to tell Johnny and Susie as much as they can handle and what they believe is morally acceptable.

This is nothing less than brainwashing propaganda.

Here's a novel idea: why not teach kids reading, writing and arithmetic, the good old basics? How about history that hasn't been rewritten to include someone's sexual orientation? Why not give actual grades based on knowledge of concepts? Schools should stick to teaching the basics and leave the rest with the parents.
