No mature adult wants to talk with other mature adults about the comprehensive sex education curriculum that is moving through the Illinois General Assembly, pushed by groups such as the ACLU and Planned Parenthood. Embarrassing or not, it’s a matter of public policy. Public policy that the public expect to discuss openly with lawmakers, since the people of Illinois will be paying for it.

Harmon, coincidentally, oversees the committee through which the sex ed curriculum was to pass this week. The mom, Tammy Schulz, says Senator Harmon told her in Springfield that the committee agenda was full for the day, and since the curriculum had been previously discussed in committee in 2011, there was no need to bring it up again. The legislation passed committee along party lines, 9 Democrats voting yes and 5 Republicans voting no.
So the question was raised as to whether Mrs. Schulz’ concerns were founded, or if she’s just an old-fashioned fuddy-duddy that needs to get with times, something Republican State Representative Kay Hatcher urged the House do during her floor speech last week on HB 2675. Hatcher urged her colleagues to vote yes to explicitly teaching eye-brow raising, hands-on sex activities to Illinois’ school children.

“We need to modernize the curriculum,” Hatcher said, since “It hasn’t been updated since the 1980s.” Only one other Republican - Minority Leader Tom Cross - crossed the aisle to join Democrats, Planned Parenthood and the ACLU in promoting HB 2675’s "age-appropriate" and “medically-accurate” sex information for kids in Kindergarten through Grade 12.
Some “age-appropriate” classroom projects HB 2675 includes using the “Horizons” sex ed curriculum for African-American classrooms, which includes teacher instructionsfor the “OPRaH” activity:Remember to explain the use of lubricants and little in the tip of the condom to give him pleasure). You can open a few lubricants and the participants to taste-remember some of them might not have ever used lubricants or may not know that they come in flavors. … Do the condom Vaseline demonstration…

From the looks it what is being taught is sexual permissiveness and how to go about it rather than how to deal properly with sexual issues and the prevention of engaging in it and the consequences.
This is for children from the age of 10 on up.
