NEW YORK, March 12, 2021 (C-Fam) — The U.S. government under Joe Biden supports “comprehensive sexuality education” in UN policy once again. This controversial UN approach to sex-education includes teaching grade-school children that homosexuality and transgenderism are healthy, and that masturbation is positive.
U.S. diplomats expressed strong support for “comprehensive sexuality education” in negotiations for an agreement on women’s issues to be adopted by the UN Commission on the Status of Women on March 23, according to insiders familiar with the negotiations.
Under the Trump administration the U.S. government had backed off promoting this controversial term. In a turnaround from only a few weeks ago, U.S. diplomats are now following the lead of the European Union and insisting that this term makes it into the agreement of the commission.
The insistence of European delegations and the Obama administration to include “comprehensive sexuality education” in UN agreements is responsible for derailing negotiations over past UN agreements. Countries who lean conservative on social issues oppose the term for fear of endorsing highly controversial sex education curricula promoted by international agencies.
The UN agency for education (UNESCO), alongside other UN agencies, released a UN-system-wide curriculum guide on “comprehensive sexuality education” in 2018. The guide endorsed by UNICEF, UN Women, UNFPA and the WHO is now used across the UN system and includes highly controversial content.
The UN agency guidelines propose teaching children as young as five that people show love and care for others “sometimes through sexual behaviors” and “the difference between biological sex and gender.” In the same age-range, the guidelines suggest pushing children to identify “trusted adults” other than their parents to “help them understand themselves, their feelings and their bodies.”
The guidelines aggressively promote social acceptance of homosexuality and transgenderism from a young age, including teaching five-year-old children that their gender does not necessarily correspond to their biological sex and that “there are many different kinds of families.”
The UN agencies even recommend telling nine-year-olds that masturbation is normal and “does not cause physical or emotional harm but should be done in private.” Read Full Article >
