Training Your Child to be a Gender and Sexual Rights Activist
Dear Friend of the
A gathering at the UN's
Commission on the Status of Women was the perfect venue to introduce
International Planned Parenthood's new Comprehensive Sex Education
Curriculum. The room was filled with NGOs from around the world - groups
with the capability of helping organizations like Planned Parenthood,
Population Council, and International Women's Health Council - do a
worldwide rollout of their new "It's all One Curriculum: Guidelines and Activities for a
Unified Approach to Sexuality, Gender, HIV and Human Rights Education."
"If we can just get this
new comprehensive sex education program into every school and fully implemented
around the globe, we can all stop working and go home!" remarked the
smiling moderator to a full room full of what she thought were like-minded
feminists and gay rights advocates. "It would solve all our
problems!" A pretty grandiose statement, our United Families
International representatives concluded.
But after returning home and
spending hours and hours reviewing the curriculum's 281-manual/textbook and the
188-page "Activities Book," we can safely say that her statement was
not grandiose. This new comprehensive sex education curriculum not only
trains students in "pleasuring themselves and others" with
masturbation, oral and anal sex, and the techniques for achieving an orgasm,
but it is well-constructed, comprehensive, and highly effective manual for training your children to
become gender and sexual rights activists.

things adolescents need to consider when deciding to engage in sex is whether
or not they desire it, they feel they are in control, they feel they are

learned. They are not innate or 'natural.' In fact, almost everything that
males can do, females can also do. And almost everything that females can do,
males can also do."
* "Pregnancy can occur by means other
than vaginal intercourse." A male and female in a
relationship are not necessary to have a child because now there are forms of
gender confusion as normal. "As
children become aware of their bodies, they may explore their sexuality with
friends of either sex."
* Marriage and
religion are repeatedly mentioned in the context of "sexual coercion"
- right next to "war and conflict situations," "prisons",
and "prostitution" (sex trafficking).

The program is intended for a
global student audience and claims to be "culturally
sensitive." However, the only thing in this curriculum that is not
straight out of radical western feminist thought and dogma is the smattering of
photos of adolescents from around the world. Even at that, a large number
of the photos in the curriculum show adolescents in groupings that depict
teaching of "Abstinence" included?"
You might remember that we
recently wrote a
blog post about a young woman in attendance at this presentation who asked
if abstinence was part of this new curriculum. Well now that we've had
time to look it over, we can verify that there are few mentions of abstinence.
"abstaining" is mentioned primarily in the context of it being a
possible method of contraception. Or consider this one lone sentence in
the curriculum: "The
surest way to prevent an STI is not to have vaginal, oral, or anal sex."
That's the most positive thing stated about abstinence.
The other couple of
references view abstaining from sex until marriage in a negative context:
"Girls may be
discouraged or even punished for being sexually active. In most settings,
girls receive contradictory messages about sex. Many are taught that they
should not be sexually active prior to marriage."
* Here's a
proposed discussion question from the manual: "What messages do abstinence only
education, child marriage, and female genital mutilation send about sexual
Yes indeed, abstinence is
positioned right there with child marriage and female genital mutilation.

to tell your parent about your same-sex attraction, parents can be a barrier to
"receiving contraceptive services," parents can pressure girls to
have abortions, can marry children off at a young age, parents may feel
embarrassed to talk about sex, etc.
Is this the type of teaching
regarding parental involvement that you envisioned for your child?
As parents, we thought the
purpose of our schools is to teach core subjects such as math, science,
history, reading - not the teaching of political activism with a predetermined
agenda. We're not even sure someone else's version of sex education
is a necessary component of a quality of education - let alone a program
that has a heavy focus on sexual relations outside of marriage or on how to
"pleasure" one's self.
The vast majority of this
curriculum teaches children the exact opposite of what it should be teaching
and cloaks it all in misleading terms such as "pleasure,"
"equality," "compassion," and "building a just
We at United Families
International regularly deal with the perversion, worldview, and propaganda of
the sexual rights crowd. But even we were shocked at the content and
focus of this curriculum. These groups have created a product that will
use schools to neutralize any objection to same-sex behavior, normalize any
form of sexual activity, promote abortion, dismantle marriage and family,
deconstruct gender roles, and perform social engineering on a major scale - all
the while training the next generation of gender and sexual rights activists.
Watch for this curriculum
coming to your school. We often run into parents who believe that
comprehensive sex education programs - rather than abstinence only - are an
acceptable option for schools. They sincerely believe that such programs
are critical to the effort to reduce the numbers of teen who contract sexually
transmitted infections or become pregnant.
If you or anyone that you
know is in that camp, I urge you to get a copy of this comprehensive sex
education program and decide if this is what you want taught to your
children. This is the curriculum or the prototype for the curriculum that
is now being promoted in schools both domestically and internationally.
This is something that every
parent, educator, and policy maker needs to be made aware. Please help United
Families International spread the word. It has to be stopped.
Thanks to all who support
our efforts at the UN - much was accomplished! Without your support, UFI
would not have been present to watch this particular program unfold and then
mount a campaign to prevent it from spreading to our schools.
Please consider a
donation to continue UFI's crucial efforts. It takes all of us to
protect the family.
