The Department of Education announced that all 5- to 16-year-old students will be required to take sex-ed classes that are “sensitive” to all sexualities and identities. Critics say that children are too young to understand adult sexual relationships such as homosexuality and transgenderism, so the “appropriate” understanding will be taught based on the social and ethical standards of government employees, including those who are gay and transdgender. Input is invited from parents, but it is clear from the literature embedded in the program that views opposed to the announced objective are not welcome. -GEG

Students in the U.K. will have to take mandatory classes about sex that include lessons on gay and transgender issues.

Starting in September 2019, all 5- to 16-year-old students will be required to take sex ed classes that are sensitive to all sexualities and identities, according to a Tuesday announcement from the U.K.’s Department of Education, the Telegraph reports.

The Department of Education explained it is also analyzing exactly what material will make up the new program and fully “expect[s] all schools to ensure that young people, whatever their developing sexuality or identity” feel comfortable with the program.

Many gay, transgender and queer activists, and some parents are happy with the new program. “We very much welcome the opportunity for all teachers, parents and young people to feed in their views on what relationships and sex education should look like,” said an LGBTQ  Stonewall spokesperson, according to the Telegraph.

 Others are skeptical of the program’s appropriateness for such young children and don’t think children who don’t even have a firm grasp of vocabulary and numbers should be taught such material. “There is no ‘age-appropriate’ way to teach primary school age children about homosexual relationships or transgenderism,” Campaign Director of the Coalition for Marriage, Thomas Pascoe, told the Telegraph.

He posits that schools including various sexual preferences in educational programs when students are not old enough to understand such concepts fully is not appropriate. “We should be teaching young children broad values of respect and tolerance, not ordering them to accept adult sexual relationships which they are far too young to understand,” he added.
