HONOLULU, Hawaii – There’s little doubt that the progressive idea of sex education goes well beyond sex education.

Progressives want to cultivate public approval of alternative lifestyles and gender identities. And they’re determined to use public school sex education classes to accomplish that goal, regardless of how parents feel about the matter.

In his new report on this topic, Hawaii State Rep. Bob McDermott quotes several radical progressives who make no secret of their intention to win the battle for the hearts and minds of America’s children.

It’s the Parents vs. Progressives, coming to a classroom near you.

“Why would we push anti-bullying programs or social studies classes that teach kids about the historical contributions of famous queers unless we wanted to deliberately educate children to accept queer sexuality as normal?” gay activist Daniel Villarreal wrote in 2011, according to McDermott’s report.

“We want educators to teach future generations of children to accept queer sexuality. In fact, our very future depends on it. Recruiting children? You bet we are.”

That’s a real problem in communities and schools throughout the nation, as McDermott explains in “The McDermott Report Part III, The Indoctrination of our Children, (Forced Acceptance of Unhealthy Behaviors).”

McDermott has become a major figure in the cultural war with progressives in recent years. He gained notoriety for suing the state over its legalization of gay marriage, and for battling Hawaii’s middle school sex education program (Pono Choices) because it taught that the anus is a sexual genital.

For McDermott, the battle is shaping up in his own back yard.

“Hawaii parents who hold traditional values face an assault on two fronts,” McDermott wrote. “On one front, the Hawaii State Legislature is considering H.B. 459, a bill which mandates that the State offer ‘Sexuality Education’ starting in Kindergarten. The bill makes little sense, since we have no relevant Hawaii State standards in place for Grades K-5. There is no curriculum to review. Parents have overwhelmingly testified against the bill.

“On the other front, the State of Hawaii’s full Board of Education will soon consider a measure that will (1) abandon the BOE’s long-standing abstinence-based sex education policy in favor of comprehensive ‘Sexuality Education’ and (2) nullify the Department of Education’s newly adopted opt-in regulation (which requires parental permission before a child receives sexual education).

“Make no mistake about it: The purpose of “Sexuality Education,” especially at young ages,is to indoctrinate children with the politically correct view of Planned Parenthood and the LGBT advocacy organizations: That homosexuality, transsexuality, and promiscuity are viable lifestyle choices that are on par with heterosexual monogamy.”

Millions of Americans believe lessons in morality belong in homes and/or places of worship. It is not the role of the state, through government-run schools, to teach children what’s right and wrong when it comes to sexual behavior, according to McDermott.

“Kids will be told that notions of being male and female are myths, and are stereotypes foisted upon the young by a repressive culture,” McDermott wrote. “In the politically correct world, one’s anatomical structure is irrelevant compared to one’s ‘gender identity.’

“Another goal is the removal of the traditional sexual restrictions, inhibitions, morality, and roles that parents try to instill in their children. Such a removal creates a cultural conflict in the home between parents and their children.

“Sexuality Education is not about health; it is about promoting a specific, far-left worldview that is at odds with the principles of risk avoidance and basic human anatomy. In a world where pseudoscience reigns supreme, biology becomes irrelevant.”

When ideology becomes more important than biology, the entire reason for sex education – risk avoidance for naive youngsters – goes out the window, according to McDermott.

“Sexuality Education curricula teach about behaviors such as anal sex, yet fail to teach about the astronomically high health risks of these aberrant behaviors,” McDermott wrote. “I have yet to see a ‘progressive’ textbook that says anal sex carries 1800% of the HIV transmission risk of penile-vaginal sex.

“The highest rates of HIV transmission are among homosexual and bisexual men, yet curricula often treat homosexuality as just another lifestyle. Topics like anal leakage are fully ignored. In an age where conservatives are bashed for waging a non-existent ‘war on women,’ leftists see no problem in the inherent misogyny when a woman is pressured into ‘pleasing’ her man through anal sex, an act which can cause her injury.

“Sexuality Education likely won’t mention that a woman faces a 250% increase in the risk of contracting oral cancer if she performs oral sex with five partners.

“Many curricula fail to disclose that females who have a persistent infection of HPV-16 have a 40% risk of developing cervical cancer. Girls are misled; they are often NOT told that early sexual activity will most likely give them HPV due to an immature cervix – even if their partners wear a condom.

“Among homosexual men, the verdict is staggering: 73% of men having sex with men (MSM) have HPV (genital warts). Among MSM who are HIV positive, 93% of them have genital warts. Yikes!

“So much for medical accuracy and information and education. The new sexuality programs often fail to emphasize that the only safe sex is that which is in the context of a long-term, monogamous relationship. In fact, such a view is considered ignorant and unenlightened.”

Social progressives love to label McDermott as ignorant and unenlightened. The website “PrideSource.com”called McDermott the “Creep of the Week” in a recent article, and referred to him as Bob “Anus” McDermott.

But others, including some experts in the medical field, refer to him as a hero.

“Rep. McDermott should be awarded the appreciation of all parents and families, not just there in Hawaii, but in the whole United States of America,” said Dr. Joe S. McIlhaney, Jr., founder of the Medical Institute of Sexual Health. “His commitment to young people is enormous, passionate and active. He is for them and intent on protecting them, so that they may achieve their full potential.”
