Here’s why schools shouldn’t teach on sexuality

Brian Noble, FPIW’s Executive Director, appeared on local television a few days ago to discuss the dangerous new curriculum coming to Washington’s public schools in 2025.

Senate Bill 5462 was signed into law by Governor Jay Inslee and will require public schools to teach students about the “contributions of underrepresented groups in school, including those in the LGBTQ+ community.” Due to the bill’s intentionally vague language, many citizens didn’t even realize the curriculum would include LGBT content. The bill used terms like “diversity,” “equity,” and “inclusion” – buzzwords that are quickly becoming notorious in the education system and business world – to hide the fact that an entirely new lesson plan would be created that focuses on LGBT history and filling our childrens’ minds with lies.

“I don’t believe that’s the state’s responsibility. When you break down our main reason for being opposed to more or less the sexualization of children at that very young age,” Brian told KOMO News on Wednesday.

This agenda is indoctrination, plain and simple: Normalize. Desensitize. De-stigmatize. This curriculum wants to promote the LGBT lifestyle, teaching our children that they have options to choose from when it comes to their sexuality – an inappropriate discussion at best with children who have yet to even reach puberty. This Woke Agenda is planting seeds of sexual confusion.

“I have no problem with us informing [students] about [different] cultures,” Brian shared. “But when it comes to our sexual behavior, those histories and what we’re heightening as acceptable, and as normal, I do believe the conversation should happen between the child and their parent or parents.”

Let’s be clear: the education system is not responsible for the moral or religious upbringing of our children, and it is still parents’ responsibility to teach their children about life, morality, religion, and sensitive topics like sexuality.

It is during discussions like these that we reflect on a story told by Corrie Ten Boom in her memoir, The Hiding Place:

“And so seated next to my father in the train compartment, I suddenly asked, ‘Father, what is sexsin?’

He turned to look at me, as he always did when answering a question, but to my surprise he said nothing. At last he stood up, lifted his traveling case off the floor and set it on the floor.

‘Will you carry it off the train, Corrie?’ he said.

I stood up and tugged at it. It was crammed with the watches and spare parts he had purchased that morning.

‘It’s too heavy,’ I said.

‘Yes,’ he said, ‘and it would be a pretty poor father who would ask his little girl to carry such a load. It’s the same way, Corrie, with knowledge. Some knowledge is too heavy for children. When you are older and stronger, you can bear it. For now you must trust me to carry it for you.’” (emphasis added)

In the same way, our schools should not be tasked with teaching children about sexual topics from a young age, with no regard for each child’s maturity and readiness for such a discussion. That responsibility lies solely with the parent. Topics of sexuality, specifically regarding the perversion of homosexuality and transgenderism, are difficult for children to comprehend, and oftentimes far too heavy for them to carry. Let’s let parents decide when the right time for their child to bear that burden is. They are the most equipped to do so.

Brian discussed this concept in his interview with KOMO news, explaining that conversations about sexuality and other mature topics should be had within the family unit at the appropriate age for each child, which may even be after that child turns 18 years old; it is entirely dependent upon their personality and maturity, which schools do not take into account.
