A southern California school district curriculum is teaching children that there are over ten sexual orientations and nine genders, according to a Fox News report on Wednesday. Some parents expressed outrage, stating that such teachings are “sexualizing our kids and normalizing sexual behavior” at a young age.
The Newport-Mesa school district in Orange County has introduced new textbooks called ‘Comprehensive Health Skills for High School’, which suggest there are nine different gender identities: agender, androgynous, bigender, cisgender, gender-nonconforming, gender fluid, gender questioning, nonbinary, and transgender.
It also identifies over 10 different sexual and ‘romantic’ orientations, which include androsexual, skoliosexual, demisexual, gynesexual, polysexual, and asexual, as well as heteroromantic, gyneromantic, homoromantic, androromantic, and skolioromantic.
The school district was previously reported to have used ‘the genderbread man’ in sex education classes to instruct middle and high school students on gender. The ‘Genderbread Identity’ man is part of the ‘Teen Talk’ sex-ed curriculum purchased by the Newport-Mesa Unified School District, which is also taught to thousands of students in California.
