Whaat????  OUTRAGE!!!   NEVER!!!  KERFUFFLE!!!!!

Wait… maybe I should read up on the facts….

CPS [Chicago Public Schools] insists the curriculum will use language children understand and focus on topics like bullying, correct names for external body parts and the difference between appropriate and inappropriate touching.

“As you identify body parts, you talk about should you be touched here or not.,” said Stephanie Whyte, the CPS Chief Health Officer. “And if someone touches you, and it’s uncomfortable, you should tell a trusted adult.”

Oh.  Ok.  I should have noticed the headline which reads:

CPS Mandates Sexual, Health Education For Kindergarten

Well, I'm sure the Christian right wing news is reporting this in a sane, honest and responsible manner:

Chicago Public Schools Mandate Sex Ed Classes for Kindergarten Students

They are much, much too young to even be thinking about sex and sexual acts at their age are the worst form of pedophilia, but Chicago public schools think little boys and girls in kindergarten are ready for sex ed classes

Not to quibble,, but kindergarteners performing sex acts isn't technically pedophilia.  That's when an adult is involved.

And also, I'm not aware of any sex classes — at any age — where the students perform sex acts.

But you know, you gotta crank up the outrage machine.  Who cares about being, you know, honest?

Let's keep reading:

But parents are already up in arms about not only how appropriate the classes are but whether they distract from real education.

Oh, well, sure.  Wouldn't want this "fake" education to get in the way of….

“The new policy calls for 300 minutes of instruction or about 30 minutes a month,” the report says.

30 minutes a month?

We're taking 30 minutes a month to tell kids what their genitalia is called, and how they shouldn't whip it out, etc. and to be tolerant of each other…. and this is a problem?


BONUS KERFUFFLE:  The socialist Nobama is in favor of the program.
