The public school curriculum in Canada has ‘evolved’ greatly in the last few years with some major changes occurring last year and another round of even more devastating changes proposed. The Canadian equivalent of SIECUS is called SIECCAN, it is the main provider of content for Canadian public schools.
We would highly recommend that all parents read the books and magazines that our children are reading. One of the main school boards in GTA, Toronto District School Board (TDSB) issued the strictest guidelines to teachers to date in 2011, the guidelines include:
“If a parent asks for his or her child to be exempted for any discussions of LGBTQ family issues as a religious accommodation, this request cannot be made because it violates the Human Rights Policy,” Religious freedom, they write further, “is not absolute” and religious accommodation in the school board “is carried out in the larger context of the secular education system.” Furthermore, it says schools ought not to send home notes or permission slips to parents before dealing with “LGBTQ issues” because treating sexual orientation differently in this way could be deemed “discriminatory.”
TDSB guidance to teachers for recommended reading for JK-3 (4 to 9 year olds)
1. Gloria Goes to Gay Pride (“Usually my mommies don’t hold hands when we go out, but today we do because today is Gay Pride Day, and that makes them smile”)
2. Heather has two mommies – http://books.google.ca/books?id=vlN-PwAACAAJ&dq=heather+has+two+mommies&hl=en&sa=X&ei=JbLTUKDdE7K-2AX274GYDg&ved=0CD4Q6AEwAA

TDSB guidance to teachers for Grade 4-7 (10 to 13 year olds)
1. Teachers are encouraged to show the students XTra and other magazines – http://www.xtra.ca/
We do not want to provide the links to the other recommended content for 10-13 year olds and high school students (14-18 year olds) due to their explicit nature, but our children are being shown this content.
Due to its great participation, contribution and float in the Gay Pride parade, the Toronto District School Board (TDSB), the supervising body responsible for the teaching and training of our children, won the following accolade:
In order to promote homosexuality, SIECUS has developed lesson plans and exercises for teachers that help youth question what is normal sexual behavior, here is one of the recommended by SIECUS to teachers for 14 year olds (Grade 8 students); this exercise is meant to teach students that homosexuality is as normal as hetrosexuality.
Please answer the following questions as honestly as possible.
- What do you think caused your heterosexuality?
- When and how did you first decide you were heterosexual?
- Is it possible that your heterosexuality is just a phase you may grow out of?
- Is it possible that your heterosexuality stems from a fear of others of the same sex?
- If you have never slept with a member of your own sex, is it possible that you might be gay if you tried it?
- If heterosexuality is normal, why are so many mental patients heterosexual?
- Why do you heterosexual people try to seduce others into your lifestyle?
- Why do you flaunt your heterosexuality? Can’t you just be who you are and keep it quiet?
- The great majority of child molesters are heterosexual. Do you consider it safe to expose your children to heterosexual teachers?
- With all the societal support that marriage receives, the divorce rate is spiraling. Why are there so few stable relationships among heterosexual people?
- Why are heterosexual people so promiscuous?
- Would you want your children to be heterosexual, knowing the problems they would face, such as heartbreak, disease, and divorce?
I apologize for the explicit nature of this post but since our children are learning these concepts in schools, we as parents ought to understand the ideaology being promoted to them.
Pomeroy, Vice President of SIECUS’s Board of Directors stated, “It is time to admit that incest need not be a perversion or a symptom of mental illness.” Pomeroy continued, “Incest between . . . children and adults . . . can sometimes be beneficial.” John Money, also a SIECUS board member said, “Childhood sexual experience such as being the partner of a relative or of an older person need not necessarily affect the child adversely
The Times magazine wrote an expose on it in April 14, 1980, titled “Attacking the last taboo” and SIECUS had to change their position on inscest, nevertheless, as of today their declared ideology on other related topics mentioned on their Web Site is as follows:
SIECUS believes that masturbation is a natural, common, and non-harmful means of experiencing sexual pleasure. Masturbation can be a way of becoming comfortable with one’s body and enjoying one’s sexuality, whether or not in a sexual relationship. Masturbation is a safe alternative to shared sexual behavior. SIECUS believes that no one should be made to feel guilty for choosing or not choosing to masturbate.
SIECUS believes that every woman, regardless of age or income, should have the right to obtain an abortion under safe, legal, affordable, easily accessible, confidential, and dignified conditions. Every woman is entitled to have full knowledge of the options available to her, and to obtain complete and unbiased information and counseling.
SEXUALLY EXPLICIT MATERIALS
SIECUS believes that sexually explicit visual, printed, or on-line materials can be valuable educational or personal aids when sensitively used in a manner appropriate to the viewer’s age and developmental level. Such materials can help reduce ignorance and confusion and contribute to a positive concept of sexuality while supporting the sexual rights of all. However, the use of violence, exploitation, or degradation, or the portrayal of children in sexually explicit materials is reprehensible.
SIECUS believes that individuals have the right to live in accordance with their sexual orientation whether they are bisexual, heterosexual, gay, or lesbian. The legal system should guarantee the civil rights and protection of all people, regardless of sexual orientation. Prejudice and discrimination based on sexual orientation is unethical and immoral.
The modern Sexual Educational Curriculum for public schools was conceived and designed by an organization called SIECUS (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sexuality_Information_and_Education_Council_of_the_United_States) , it is the largest content provider for educators and was the chief evaluator of all Sex Ed curriculum in public schools in USA. SIECUS was created at the Kinsey institute (refer to part 10) with the co-author of Kinsey research, Wardell Pomeroy, as one of the group founders and Dr. Mary (of Planned Parenthood) as the main founder.
Who supported this organization? Before mentioning the name, let us ensure you that it is not a conspiracy theory, whether we chose to believe it or not, it is a fact admitted and documented by all sides.
The organization was established by an initial grant from “Playboy Foundation” and according to Hugh’s daughter it has received several grants and ‘outreach’ money since then. Hugh Hefner, the ‘father’ of modern pornography supports causes which fight censorship and having public school children get a certain view of human sexual behavior was indeed a very worthy cause for him.
This is what some of the most popular authors for children think about God and life, their books have a profound impact on the young minds and help shape their attitudes towards life and relationships.
1. Philip Pullman – Author of golden compass and other very popular children books, 15 million sold – Self-proclaimed proud Atheist
“I am all for the death of God.”
“My books are about killing God.”
2. J.K. Rowling – Harry Potter series
Admits to having lots of doubts about God, although she does claim to believe. She has played a key role in acceptance and glorification of ‘white magic’. There are Islamic fictional books about children fighting magic with Surah e Nas, but after reading Harry Potter which child would not want to be a good wizard? Quran, Hadith and Ahle-Bait (AS) have condemned magic in the strongest terms, Imam as-Sadiq (a.s.) said, ‘He, who learns something of magic whether little or much, disbelieves”
3. Dan Barker – Author of a number of children books and the famous “Mary had a little lamb” poem – Self-proclaimed proud atheist
“How happy can you be when you think every action and thought is being monitored by a judgmental ghost?”
“Just say NO to religion.”
“Faith is a cop-out. It is intellectual bankruptcy. If the only way you can accept an assertion is by faith, then you are conceding that it can’t be taken on its own merits”
4. Richard Dawkins – Bestselling author, his new book published last year is climbing the charts and expected to become an all-time best seller for middle school children
“I am a fairly militant atheist”
“Faith is one of world’s greatest evils” (according to him, religion is analogous to a virus of the mind, compares it with smallpox)
“Religion is both a source of conflict and a justification for belief without evidence”
Alfred Kinsey, the ‘father’ of the sexual education curriculum in the western schooling system had a profound impact on how the society and educational institutes look at human sexuality, since our children are being taught curriculum greatly influenced by this man’s ideology and philosophy, at minimum we should know who he was:
Alferd Kinsey was a professor, teacher, sex researcher, a child molester who advocated adult-child relationships, self-mutilation for pleasure and all forms and means of free sexual relationships , he also participated in the ‘sexual research’ personally and personally recorded a number of ‘experiments’. His experiments included 5 year old boys and girls and also included paying a father to rape his daughter. Chapter 5 of his groundbreaking book, which served as the basis for the sex revolution and the sexual education curriculum in America and Canada, talks about how even an infant has the capacity for sex related pleasure and that having sex with children even at the earliest of ages does not harm them as ‘it is natural for human animal’
Some of the novels for high school students in Ontario

TDSB Guidelines for the Accommodation of Transgender and Gender Non-Conforming Students and Staff
A few points from the guide
1. A transgender student or staff member should be allowed to use the washroom or their choice (not of the their sex at birth), asking a doctor’s letter or other proof is prohibited, self-identification is enough, e.g. a boy/staff member who now identifies himself as a transgender girl can use a girls washroom (see page 7)
2. “There are very few transgender role models in schools. School leaders should make an effort to hire and retain transgender and gender non-conforming staff.”
3. “Board staff will send an annual advisory to all schools to ensure standardized forms are appropriately amended to reflect these guidelines. The advisory will reinforce the expectation that schools use gender-neutral language and offer gender-inclusive choices. (E.g.,” Select the gender identity that best fits you: Female, Male, Trans.”)”
Advice for teens, How to decide whether you are ready for sex?
If you think you might have sex, ask yourself the following questions:
· Does it feel right?
· Do I love my partner?
· Does he/she love me just as much?
· Have we talked about using condoms, and was the talk OK?
· Have we got contraception organised to protect against pregnancy?
· Do I feel able to say ‘no’ at any point if I change my mind, and will we both be OK with that?
If you answer yes to all these questions, the time may be right. But if you answer yes to any of the following questions, it might not be:
· Do I feel under pressure from anyone, such as my partner or friends?
· Could I have any regrets afterwards?
· Am I thinking about having sex just to impress my friends or keep up with them?
· Am I thinking about having sex in order to keep my partner?
The law says that it’s legal for you to consent (agree) to sex from the age of 16. If you’re under 16, you can get confidential contraceptive and sexual health services, including abortions. You can get free condoms from some GPs, community contraceptive or young persons clinics, and Brook Advisory Centres.

From TDSB’s “Challenging Homophobia And Heterosexism: A K-12 Curriculum Resource Guide
Junior Kindergarten to Grade 3: Broaden the students’concept of family diversity; familiarize students with terms such as gay and lesbian; read the book Who’s in a Family, which looks at same-sex relationships/single parents/divorce; teach a drama activity that encourages“girls and boys to role-play opposite roles” in order to create diverse family tableaux for a pretend scrapbook; discuss bullying and the use of words such as“sissy, fag, gaylord, batty man, poofta, tomboy, lezzy, lezbo, dyke, homo, queer”; explain Pride Week by showing pictures from the parade and reading Gloria Goes to Gay Pride; ask students to make posters for the TDSB float in Pride Parade; help students host their own Pride Parade.
Grade 4-6: Show the children images from LGBTQ publications such as Out, The Advocate, Curve, Xtra, Siren and Fab; discuss case studies such as “Siobhan’s Story,” which is about a young woman who was called a “lezzie” and “dyke” for joining an anti-sexism club; discuss gender-role stereotyping.
Grade 7-12: Activities include setting up a Kissing Booth — a stamp on the cheek, or a few chocolate Kisses — where students broadcast a slide show of anti-homophobic messages. The guide also recommends certain school-wide activities, including creating an anti-homophobia education display and mentioning contributions of LGBTQ community members during daily morning announcements.
