Hamilton Parents Protest Sexual Grooming Cirriculum, Police Called In


Here is the Toronto Star's summary of what's in the sexual grooming cirriculum:

"Lets talk about sex: What’s actually in Ontario’s new health curriculum:"

Grade 1: Correctly naming private parts; recognizing “exploitive behaviours” such as inappropriate touching. A “teacher prompt” encourages students to talk about “all body parts with respect” so they understand that “If I’m hurt or need help, and I know the right words, other people will know what I’m talking about.” 

(The kids are SIX YEARS OLD at this point!)

Grade 3: Same-sex families, in the context of reflecting all families and respecting differences; introduction of gender identity (the curriculum refers to six kinds of gender identity — male, female, two-spirited, transgender, transsexual and intersex).

Grade 4: Puberty and social/romantic relationships; online safety, text messaging and “sexual pictures.”

(They are 9 and 10 years old here!)

Grade 5: How pregnancy occurs.

(They are 10 and 11 years old here!) 

Grade 6: Building healthy relationships, the notion of consent, and combating stereotypes. If asked, teachers can say masturbation is “common and is not harmful and is one way of learning about your body.” 

Grade 7: Learning to communicate that they don’t want to have sex, including anal sex; how delaying sexual activity is best. Also, how STIs are transmitted during sex, including anal sex. Also, risks of “sexting.”

Grade 8: Understanding gender identity, including transgender identity as well as various sexual orientations; identifying how to “help individuals of all identities and orientations develop a positive self-concept.” Contraception/preventing pregnancy
