Cumberland County School Board has adopted and is considering keeping Get Real, a sex education program written by Planned Parenthood which is aimed at middle school students aged 11-14:
• It engages 6th graders with discussion about how feeling “comfortable and ready” is the primary criterion for sexual activity.
• It infers that anyone who disapproves of homosexual behavior is “against homosexuals” and is “cruel.”
• It gives a sexually explicit description of “technical abstinence” to reduce the risk of STI’s.
• It provides flash cards for 7th graders outlining proper condom usage, one of which reads "have vaginal, oral or anal sex."
• It recommends the usage of "non-microwavable saran wrap" as a prophylactic for certain non-reproductive sex acts, many of which we can't include here because of the vulgarity.
Does the school board think this is "age appropriate" for 12 year olds...?
