Children are learning a lot of things in school these days that they were never taught before. For instance, a new video documentary created by CNN and hosted by Lisa Ling contains scenes of high school students being taught about anal sex, performing oral sex, and transitioning to a new gender.
The documentary, titled, “This Is Sex with Lisa Ling,” features a segment they call “Sex 101.” But this is not your grandmother’s sex education class. It’s a new curriculum that includes explicit information about sexual practices that many consider to be sodomy.
In the video, CNN’s Lisa Ling sits in a classroom with high schoolers, listening to a lesson where a teacher quizzes students on the proper term for a woman receiving oral sex, among other graphic questions.
Other topics taught in this classroom include how to use condoms for anal sex between same-sex couples. Lisa Ling, who admits that she was raised in a traditional Asian home where such matters were never discussed, characterizes teaching homosexual sex and transgender issues as “inclusive.”
Noting that some of her students are currently “transitioning genders,” the teacher in the video said that she’s careful to ask them their “preferred pronouns,” such as he, she, they or a host of other “gender pronouns” of which most people have never heard. For instance:
- Ze/hir/hir (Tyler ate hir food because ze was hungry.) Ze is pronounced like “zee” can also be spelled zie or xe, and replaces she/he/they. Hir is pronounced like “here” and replaces her/hers/him/his/they/theirs.
The teacher also discusses how California passed a new law on sex ed that is creating these discussions in the classroom.
Pronoun usage used to be a lesson for English class, but these days, schools from kindergarten to college are stressing the importance of using the “correct pronouns” when speaking to people who no longer understand the difference between males and females. Such societal norms have become twisted in just the past few years to the point that even young children are being taught that gender is something you are “assigned” at birth, and you can change your assignment, if you so desire.
According to the University of Wisconsin’s LGBT Resource Center, it’s important to ask and correctly use someone’s pronouns, calling it “one of the most basic ways to show your respect for their gender identity.”
“When someone is referred to with the wrong pronoun, it can make them feel disrespected, invalidated, dismissed, alienated, or dysphoric (often all of the above.),” according to the center’s website, which goes on to note, “It is a privilege to not have to worry about which pronoun someone is going to use for you based on how they perceive your gender. If you have this privilege, yet fail to respect someone else’s gender identity, it is not only disrespectful and hurtful, but also oppressive.”
In California, they’re actually working on making it a crime to “mis-gender” someone. The law is currently limited to nursing homes and intermediate-care facilities, but if passed, those who “willfully and repeatedly” refuse “to use a transgender resident’s preferred name or pronouns” could be slapped with a $1,000 fine and up to one year in prison, according to the California Health and Safety Code.
The state Senate passed the bill 26-12 at the end of May. Since then, the Assembly Judiciary committee recommended the bill unanimously and the General Assembly held its first hearing on the legislation Wednesday.
