This sexual brainwashing of our children must be resisted

Maybe it was inevitable that once same-sex marriage was on the books activists would double down on their goal of indoctrinating our children with postmodern notions of sexual experimentation and gender change.

Well, inevitable or not, that’s the stage the sexual revolution has now reached. Under the guise of reducing bullying and improving self-respect, the promotion of ‘family diversity’ has moved into schools with disturbing rapidity. It joins the already prevalent pushing of libertine attitudes to sexuality on to teens.

As of September 2020, Relationships Education will become mandatory in all primary schools in England (both state and independent) and Relationships and Sex Education will become mandatory in all secondary schools. The government has made no secret that one of the principal aims is to promote the acceptance of LGBT lifestyles and identities, with Ofsted having already placed this controversial agenda at the heart of its school inspection regime.

Parents will retain an absolute right of withdrawal from sex education in primary school but will lose it in secondary school, where head teachers will have the final say. Children themselves will be able to overrule their parents from the age of 15. In addition, the new mandatory subject of Relationships Education comes with no right of withdrawal in primary or secondary school, yet the subject is already being used as a vehicle to promote LGBT lifestyles to children as young as 4.

The loss of this parental right is significant. Until now it has allowed social conservatives to protect their children from school-based indoctrination. It has also protected all pupils insofar as schools have had to operate in the knowledge that parents can withdraw their children if content is outrageous or indecent. With the right gone, there is no meaningful check on the elites’ pursuit of their sexualisation agenda.

Concerned parents have been calling on the government to amend the draft regulations to restore the absolute right of withdrawal. One petition in particular reached the required 100,000 signatures and was debated in Parliament on Monday. Labour MP Chris Bryant, a longstanding advocate of compulsory sex education, used the debate to welcome the change, the BBC giving him a platform to make all kinds of grand unsubstantiated claims for sex education including its supposed role in lowering teen pregnancy.

The legality of the move has been questioned. Campaigners have pointed out that the 1998 Human Rights Acts enshrines the right of parents to ensure ‘education and teaching in conformity with their own religious and philosophical convictions’, and that the European Court of Human Rights has consistently upheld the right of parents to withdraw their children from any classes they deem objectionably indoctrinating.

The difficulty for campaigners is that this agenda is coming from the very top. The drive towards compulsory sex education is part of a global campaign led by the UN to bring Comprehensive Sexuality Education to the world by 2030, embedding the ideology of the sexual revolution across the whole of humanity.

The World Health Organisation in 2010 published its Standards for Sexuality Education in Europe – a model of how to pass off an ideological manifesto of pansexuality as neutral science. ‘Sexuality education is based on a (sexual and reproductive) human rights approach,’ it explains. ‘Sexuality education is firmly based on gender equality, self-determination and the acceptance of diversity.’ Very importantly: ‘Sexuality education starts at birth.’

The document sets out what children of different ages should be introduced to and taught, including encouragement to masturbate from as young an age as possible. Here’s a summary of the recommended curriculum, courtesy of the Stop RSE campaign (Warning: explicit language).

Age 0-4: right to explore nakedness and the body and gender identities. Learn to differentiate between good and bad secrets and learn ‘my body belongs to me’.

Age 4-6: name each body part – caregivers are instructed to ‘wash each body part’ and ‘talk about sexual matters in sexual language’. Children should be given information about enjoyment and sexual pleasure when touching one’s own body in early childhood masturbation, taught about friendship and love towards people of the same sex, secret love and first love and an awareness of rights.

Age 6-9: informed about menstruation and ejaculation, choices about pregnancy, different methods of contraception, sex in media, enjoyment and pleasure when touching one’s body, difference between friendship, love, lust, same-sex love, STDs. Children should examine their body, use sexual language and accept diversity.

Ages 9-12: 1st sex experience, variability of sexual behaviour, contraceptives and their use, pleasure, masturbation, orgasm, differences between gender identity and biological sex, learn about STDs, HIV and sexual rights. Acquire media competence using internet, phones and deal with pornography. To talk about sex and make decisions to have sex experiences or not.

Age 12-15: learn skills to obtain and use a condom (in reality this is taught in primary schools in UK), communication skills to have safe/enjoyable sex, deal with shame, fear, jealousy, disappointments. Modern media competence and deal with porn.’

Such an explicit and hedonistic curriculum will clearly contribute to the early sexualisation of children and to their vulnerability. What is never explained is how such relentless encouragement from birth to regard sexual pleasure as an available leisure pursuit is supposed to protect children from abuse, from risky sexual behaviour, and from regret for immature sexual adventures – all things unhappily prevalent in our society.

The old wisdom that humans thrive best when sex and child-bearing are kept for maturity and preferably marriage – and all the research that proves it – is deliberately suppressed in favour of a bewildering array of choices and identities that children are transparently not in any position to make informed judgments about. No wonder, then, that sex education programmes have been shown by numerous academic studies to have no impact at all on improving rates of teen pregnancy and STIs.

What such programmes undoubtedly do have an impact on is young people’s readiness to become sexually active and experiment with risky forms of sexual behaviour as well as to change their sense of what is normal as opposed to transgressive. Such ‘education’ plants ideas in children’s minds that might never have occurred to them otherwise – such as that they might really be the opposite sex, that they might be sexually attracted to people of the same sex, or that it might be a good idea to have sex underage and sleep around.

This is wonderful, of course, for adults who push an extreme libertarian agenda, or worse who want to sexually abuse children or seduce teenagers (all consensual, naturally), but it’s very hard to see how it is good for the children themselves. Watching teenagers have sex has even now become mainstream entertainment, at least as far as Channel 4 and Netflix are concerned. Makes a mockery of all this concern about safeguarding children and young people, if you think about it.

Time to draw a line and push back. This move by the least conservative Conservative government in history shows how at odds Parliament is with the people, and it’s another power grab by an over-mighty state over children determined to indoctrinate them, at the expense of parents and traditional family values. All real conservatives should oppose it.

  1. All of which is an argument for why we must all be more involved in schools as Governors, as people who take assemblies, as mentors, in short as those who serve our children. Our children will be receiving information from all sorts of places & one could argue that the secular authority has taken a while to catch-up. If the church and its people is THE go-to place for love, truth, care and nurture, we will have nothing to fear from those who have other agendas.


  2. Great article! Our experience of school sex Ed in primary is that unhealthy stuff is snuck in by being mixed up with good bits.

    I had to request copies of the ciriculum to preread to be sure of what was being taught. We removed our then 7 year old from one session.

    Parents with kids in school must be vigilant – attend meetings and be confident to request information. Attending these meetings will give clues to the real adgenda and philosophical and ethical position of teachers (most likely liberal) that write and teach these topics. For instance the guy who wrote “All about me” being used in many primary schools in Warwickshire when delivering the parents meeting wore a Stonewall promotional T-shirt.


  3. Thank you so much for this article. I have been concerned about this for 4 years and seen the Ontario sex Ed which the people have now managed to overturn by voting out the Liberals and the lesbian leader who was pushing horrendous stuff at young people. But who do we vote for, when it is supposed conservatives who are putting this into law?
    Parents must stand firm and resist like the Ontario parents did. You cannot guard the innocence of your children against these people and leave them in a school environment without being pro active.
    I have been giving copies of your article to inform other people.
    I have been looking at “Educate and Celebrate” the programme that the C of E have agreed to allowing in their schools. The whole ideology is to be embedded in the curriculum so that say when you are doing geography in KS1 or 2, the story of the 2 male penguins is recommended. Can you do an article on this topic.


  4. Excellent, as ever, Will. Please never stop exposing this dangerous indoctrination and other strains of ‘progressive’ thought like it.
