How would you feel if you were the parent of a 5 year old in kindergarten and found that they were going to be taught about masturbation and that it’s okay to play with your genitals because it feels good?
Clark County, Nevada is home to the infamous sin city of Las Vegas. It is also home to the fifth largest school district in the country.
Parents in Clark County are facing the possibility of their kids, as young as 5 years of age, being taught about masturbation as the school board is considering new sex education materials. The materials they are looking at not only teaches kids as young as 5 years of age that masturbation is okay and normal, but so is homosexuality.
Prior to 2004, the school district taught abstinence-only in their sex education classes. Since 2004, they still teach abstinence, but also expose students to safe-sex practices and contraceptives just in case they decide to have sex.
The new changes to the sex education being considered are a more comprehensive sexuality model as opposed to the former conservative approach. A more comprehensive sexuality model reflects the societal decay seen throughout America where sinful lifestyles are being accepted as the norm and people who adhere to strict biblical teachings are ridiculed.
When word got out about the proposed changes, a number of parents were not pleased and quickly started to let the school district know. At a recent meeting with the school board, Julie Butler, the parent of a 5 year old angrily asked them:
“You want to teach my 5-year-old how to masturbate?”
Another parent commented that the school board only allowed those who were invited to attend the ‘community input’ meetings held by the school board. Nicole Luth stated:
“I felt it was quite limited in scope and who was able to attend,”
Pat Skorkowsky, Superintendent of the Clark County School District has done his best to calm the parental outrage he has received, telling parents that they are only looking into possible options and that nothing has been formerly proposed.
I’ve known people that live in the Las Vegas area and they tell me that away from the Strip, that the rest of the area is fairly normal and conservative, but it sounds like the influence of the decadence and hedonism that’s made Las Vegas so popular may be about to invade the quiet and normal suburbs.
Parents should be upset and make sure they let the district know that they will not tolerate the worldly sexualization and corruption of their young kids. They need to tell the school board that what goes on in downtown Vegas needs to stay in Vegas and not in their schools.
