Children are never too young to learn about rainbow sex

By Lyle Shelton - posted Monday, 9 May 2016

With preparations for the plebiscite on marriage shelved until well after the July 2 election, the Turnbull Government clearly wants voters to focus on the jobs and growth narrative outlined in last week's budget.

But one of the big consequences of any possible change in the definition of marriage – homosexual sex education in schools – is already proving a major distraction from the government's election agenda.

Hardly a week goes by without revelations of a new program designed to teach children that their gender is fluid or that they might be same-sex attracted.


It seems that children are never too young to be inducted into the bright new world of rainbow sexual concepts.

An avalanche of homosexual and transgender material is flooding into the curriculum from high school to pre-school – all without parents' knowledge.

This rainbow sexual indoctrination is even starting before pre-school. Day care centre workers are being taught to see the toddlers in their care as sexual beings.

A new manual produced by Early Childhood Australia (ECA) for early childhood educators mentions masturbation 21 times in 36 pages.

ECA's "start early" program resource also examines cross-dressing, thanks to funding from the Baird Government in New South Wales.

Encouraging child care workers to see toddlers as sexual beings is creepy.


And in Victoria, a Melbourne University academic, Kylie Smith, wants pre-schoolers taught about gay marriage and the idea that their gender is fluid, not biological.

These controversial ideas which are contested by leading feminists and paediatricians are all being implemented with state and federal government funding.

The Safe Schools Coalition of Australia resource, The Gender Fairy story book, tells four-year-olds that "…only you know whether you are a boy or a girl. No one can tell you." Not your teacher and certainly not your mummy or daddy.
