Please do not attend the Concerned Parents meeting on August 12. Your time is too valuable and we will have a representative there to report back to us. Stay tuned for details on our own event!
Who are we?
We are parents and educators in the Austin area who are for proper education of our children on the subjects of safe sex education, acceptance and tolerance to children of all ages. We believe that we, as parents, have the right to give our children the right message about sex, including group discussions among their peers and qualified educators. Messages of abstinence currently being taught in schools is setting up our children for disease, abuse, and negative life outcomes, and we will no longer sit silently by. We aim to ensure schools are a safe place for all children.
What is the sex ed/LGBT agenda?
The sex education "agenda" is based in fact. This ideology fosters a healthy relationship for children with their own bodies and their own sexuality as they grow up. By introducing age-appropriate conversations from an early age, children stay innocent longer, demystifying the simple facts of life and leading to better understanding the repercussions of unhealthy sexual activities. Sex, an activity that has effectively kept modern humans from going extinct for the past 200,000 years, is a normal and healthy part of life. We know that homosexuality is normal and that issues of sexual health affect them as well. After having overtaken nearly all of society, the abstinence education epidemic is affecting those as young as preschool age.
How do I know if proper education is in my child's school?
You'll get propaganda left in your door on a Saturday morning filled with lies and hyperbolic claims about said proper education. It will make unsubstantiated statements and direct you to a website that only links to its own resources and lobbying groups.
When did this come into schools?
Abstinence only education has been federally funded for decades via the Adolescent Family Life Act. Many Local and State governments also have their own extensions of how sex education is taught. Many groups are fighting back against these laws due to a little thing called "separation of church and state" or The First Amendment and to put in place a curriculum that serves public health and our children's mental and physical well-being individually.
Why should I care?
We know teens start sexually experimenting regardless of their religion, race, gender or sexuality. We also know there is a strong correlation in reduced rates of STDs, pregnancy, and sex when early, comprehensive sex education is practiced. Our children deserve to be well-armed with the tools and knowledge to protect themselves.
What can I do?
The time is now or never to take a stand. See our step-by-step guide to making sure your child is in a safe, accepting environment where knowledge is power.
We, as parents, have the right to
raise our children with knowledge and the power to own their truths.
We must act now.
