No sexual identity in sex ed, Agency of Ed advises teachers

Planned Parenthood, Outright Vermont helped write teaching guidelines

by Guy Page

A January, 2019 Vermont Agency of Education guideline to sex ed teachers recommends never using the terms “boy” or “girl” or other sex-identifying terms.

“Full Spectrum: Educator’s Guide to Implementing LGBTQ+ Inclusive Sex Ed” was prepared by Outright Vermont and Planned Parenthood and distributed to teachers on Vermont Agency of Education letterhead.

The directives included say referring to condoms as male or female is “exclusionary.” Instead, teachers should use the “inclusive, non-gendered” alternative: “external and internal condoms.” They also prod teachers to use words that ignore differences between the sexes. For example:

Use Language That Is Gender Neutral:

Folks, Friends, Y’All, Everyone (instead of ‘Boys and Girls’ or ‘Ladies and Gentlemen’)

Use ‘They/Them’ pronouns by default, including in introductions for everyone.

Body-First Language:

When two people are having vaginal sex (instead of ‘when a guy and a girl have sex.’)

People with uteruses often experience this during puberty (instead of ‘girls often experience this during puberty’)

The guidelines also explicitly recommend confidentiality, i.e. students not telling their parents about other children’s sexuality.

Build in confidentiality
• In your ground rules, from day one
• Be sure students know how confidentiality works in your class and with their parents
• Establish group norms or guidelines for class that explicitly recognize and include respect for LGBTQ+ identities

Vermont Daily Chronicle asked Agency of Education Secretary Dan French what information, specifically, should be kept from parents. He responded in an October 14 email: “If [hypothetical student] John discloses his personal information, another student in the class should respect that as being private. What John shares with his parents is his business,” French explained.

  1. This is just plane stupid! Perhaps, asinine is a better description. Who are these people that come up with this garbage. I believe their names, addresses, phone numbers, Email addresses should be published, not just hidden behind some board, committee, organization, corporation or business. Why should they not claim responsibility for the products they sponsor. Mr. Page why doesn’t your publication provide this information to your readers?

  2. If this isn’t a reason for parents to pull their children out of VT Government run education systems then I’m not sure what is. Why would anyone entrust their children to these Orwellian indoctrination centers disguising themselves as “schools”. The only way to cripple these Central Planners is to shift to other choices outside of Government run facilities.

  3. Females Girls/Women ARE NOT people with uteruses. We are NOT Front holes. We are NOT people with vaginas, We are NOT menstruators. We are NOT chest feeders. We are NOT non men. We are NOT non prostate havers. We are girls or women. Woman: Adult Human Females. Stop reducing females to our body parts. it’s dehumanizing and offensive. You can NOT change your sex and changing language to be inclusive of some who believe they can is a violent attack on females. If using the wrong pronouns is actual violence then what is changing an entire vocabulary to describe girls and women? FEMICIDE!!!!! Stop the madness of the Trans Identified cult.

  4. I doubt you think Planned Parenthood and Outright Vermont “helped right (correct, bring back on course) teaching guidelines,” as the headline says. If you meant that they “helped write” the guidelines, you have permission to skip sex ed and head straight to remedial English.

  5. Indoctrination not invasion. These people believe they can twist society whichever way they choose. Given enough rope they will hang themselves and unfortunately, take a number of innocents with them. It is time to remove all funding and revenue sources. Without money, they will starve and their plans fail. Slam the wallets shut and no more funding – cut them off.

  6. The government justified comprehensive sex education (CSE) to prevent unwanted teen pregnancies. I think most Americans and Vermonters agreed that was a prudent decision. However, we did NOT agree to have the government teach our children HOW to have sex. Pull your kids out of public school! Save your kids from the public schools!

  7. How close to child abuse is this? How many parents actually know this is what is being taught to their kids? Time everyone wakes up and stand up for the young children of all ages in our schools. Whenever government gets involved in anything it gets destroyed.

  8. Not to worry your State Government has all bases covered. (So to speak).

    Oct 14, 2020 · Vermont will become the first state in the nation to make free condoms available in public middle and high schools next year after Gov. Scott signed a bill last week that expands access to contraceptives across the state.

    Now your 14 year old sons can safely experience the joys of anal sex as they are educated in all the various gender options available to them.
