STOP Sexualizing our Children!

What are Illinois National Sexual Education Standards?

On January 9, 2012, four leading health organizations released the first-ever national standards for sexuality education in schools. Published in the Journal of School Health, the ground-breaking National Sexuality Education Standards: Core Content and Skills, K-12 provide clear, consistent, and straightforward guidance on the essential minimum, core content for sexuality education that is developmentally and age-appropriate for students in grades Kindergarten through grade 12.

The standards focus on seven topics:

Anatomy and Physiology
Puberty and Adolescent Development
Identity, Pregnancy, and Reproduction
Sexually Transmitted Diseases and HIV
Healthy Relationships
Personal Safety

The National Sexuality Education Standards are not a mandate and they are not a sexuality education curriculum. Topics are presented using performance indicators—what students should know and should be able to do by the end of grades 2, 5, 8, and 12—and are based on the National Health Education Standards.

New proposed bills will violate the constitutional rights of parents in Education and Medical. Illinois Supreme Court has made it clear that parental rights are fundamental rights, therefore, they receive strict judicial scrutiny in Illinois.

Analysis of National Sexuality Education Standards 2011

15 Harmful Elements Commonly Included in CSE Materials:

  1. SEXUALIZES CHILDREN
    Normalizes child sex or
    desensitizes children to sexual
    things.
  2. TEACHES CHILDREN TO
    CONSENT TO SEX-May teach children how to
    negotiate sexual encounters or
    how to ask for or get “consent”
    from other children to engage in
    sexual acts with them.
  3. PROMOTES ANAL AND ORAL
    SEX-Normalizes these high-risk
    sexual behaviors and may omit
    vital medical facts, such as the
    extremely high STI infection
    rates (i.e., HIV and HPV) and the
    oral and anal cancer rates of
    these high-risk sex acts
  4. PROMOTES HOMOSEXUAL/
    BISEXUAL BEHAVIOR
    Normalizes or promotes
    acceptance or exploration of
    diverse sexual orientations,
    sometimes in violation of state
    education laws.
  5. PROMOTES SEXUAL PLEASURE
    Teaches children they are
    entitled to or have a “right” to
    sexual pleasure or encourages
    children to seek out sexual
    pleasure.
  6. PROMOTES SOLO AND/OR
    MUTUAL MASTURBATION
    While masturbation can be part
    of normal child development,
    encourages masturbation at
    young ages, which may make
    children more vulnerable to
    pornography use, sexual
    addictions or sexual
    exploitation.
  7. PROMOTES CONDOM USE IN
    INAPPROPRIATE WAYS
    May inappropriately eroticize
    condom use (e.g., emphasizing
    sexual pleasure or “fun” with
    condoms) or use sexually explicit
    methods (i.e., penis and vagina
    models, seductive role plays,
    etc.) to promote condom use to children.
  8. PROMOTES PREMATURE
    SEXUAL AUTONOMY
    Teaches children they can
    choose to have sex when they
    feel they are ready or when they
    find a trusted partner.
  9. FAILS TO ESTABLISH
    ABSTINENCE AS THE EXPECTED
    STANDARD
    Fails to establish abstinence (or
    a return to abstinence) as the
    expected standard for all school
    age children.
  10. PROMOTES TRANSGENDER
    IDEOLOGY
    Promotes affirmation of and/or
    exploration of diverse gender
    identities.
  11. PROMOTES ABORTION/
    CONTRACEPTION TO CHILDREN
    May present abortion as a safe
    or positive option while omitting
    data on the many potential
    negative physical and mental
    health consequences.
  12. PROMOTES PEER-TO-PEER
    SEX ED OR SEXUAL RIGHTS
    ADVOCACY
    Note: While learning to advocate for dignified and respectful treatment,
    awareness, and acceptance of others can be a very good thing, in many CSE
    programs, this kind of standard is usually aimed at recruiting students to be
    LGBT allies, sexual rights advocates, and promoters of sexual diversity.
    May train children to teach other children about sex or
    sexual pleasure, through peer-to-peer initiatives.
  13. UNDERMINES TRADITIONAL
    VALUES AND BELIEFS
    May encourage children to
    question their parents’ beliefs or
    their cultural or religious values
    regarding sex, sexual orientation
    or gender identity.
  14. UNDERMINES PARENTS OR
    PARENTAL RIGHTS
    May instruct children they have
    rights to confidentiality and
    privacy from their parents. May
    teach children about accessing
    sexual commodities or services,
    including abortion, without
    parental consent.
  15. REFERS CHILDREN TO
    HARMFUL RESOURCES
    Refers children to harmful
    websites, materials or outside
    entities.
