Parents’ ‘Sex Ed Sit Out’ Protesting Forced Gender Ideology in Schools Spreads Across Country
Parents across the nation will pull their children out of school on April 23 to protest sex education programs that have become steeped in gender ideology due to an agenda forced by pro-abortion and LGBT rights organizations. Dubbed “Sex Ed Sit Out,” the protest has been organized by parents who want to know why their children are learning graphic details about oral and anal sex and how to masturbate. The protest is taking off from Charlotte, North Carolina, to nearly a dozen other cities, reports the Washington Times, including Austin and San Antonio, Texas; Spokane, Washington; Sacramento, California; Bloomington, Indiana; and Martinsburg, West Virginia.
