GREAT FALLS, VA - A grassroots movement of frustrated public school parents who want to end the sexualization of their children during class time with inappropriate and parent-unapproved sex-ed curriculum has turned their frustration to action with a “Sex Ed Sit Out” protest on April 23rd. 

Parents around the world will be pulling their children out of school for the day in this widespread protest of dangerous and graphic sex education. Parents are demanding to know why their children are being taught how to have anal and oral sex, masturbate one another, and question their gender. At least four major American cities will also be organizing press conferences and protest events, as well as cities in Canada and Australia.

Enough Is Enough® (EIE), a non-profit organization dedicated to making the Internet safer for children and families is standing behind this movement to protect the innocence and defend the dignity of children.
 “This is sex-EDploitation of our children and is tantamount to child sexual abuse!” said EIE President Donna Rice Hughes. “Parent’s concerns are being ignored in these cases and we are proud to stand with parents in saying 'Enough Is Enough®!' Schools should be a trusted ally of parents and safeguard the minds and hearts of our children. Sadly instead, many are acting as a conduit of promoting hi-risk, unhealthy and potentially harmful sexual practices – the same activities parents are trying to shield their kids from online.” 

Cities such as Rocklin, CA and Fairfax County, Va., have recently been the focus of news headlines because of controversial, gender-bending and graphic sex education and anti-bullying programs which parents say they were not informed would be taught to their children, sometimes as young as five-years-old. 

“Why are our tax dollars going to pay for curriculum and resources that teach dangerous and promiscuous behaviors which most parents find morally abhorrent and the CDC has stated are a health risk?” questioned Elizabeth Johnston, viral activist vlogger and concerned mother. “Furthermore, why aren’t administrators being transparent with parents about the content of sexuality resources? It’s as if they have something to hide. That should frighten parents everywhere.”
Ms. Hughes concluded, “Parents are already overwhelmed by and are burdened with the monumental task of protecting their kids from exposure to extreme Internet pornography that is sexualizing young children and teens, corroding childhood innocence and leading them into a potential downward spiral of sexual brokenness and addiction. Parents must be the primary educator of their child’s sexual education. Schools, in the meantime, need to stick to preparing our children for the future – not pushing the unhealthy and risky sexual agendas of special interest groups under the guise of 'sex education'.”

To date, more than 24,000 people have signed the petition "Fed Up Parents Plan Sex Ed Sit Out." For more information about the Sex Ed Sit Out in your area visit the website www.SexEdSitOut.com.
