    Why isn't this sensible? Don't we want transparency?

    NEW VIRGINIA LAW MANDATES PUBLIC SCHOOLS ALERT PARENTS TO SEXUALLY EXPLICIT INSTRUCTIONAL MATERIAL

    A new Virginia law will mandate that every family in the state will be alerted if their children could be exposed to sexually explicit content in public schools.

    Officials with the Virginia Department of Education (VDOE) said the regulations, which school boards have until January to adopt, are aimed at reinforcing parents in their right to decide what their children are exposed to and at protecting their innocence, according to local Richmond outlet WTKR. They also noted that the law is not intended to censor books or instructional material based on the sexual orientation of characters in such books.

    The policy mandates that public schools in Virginia, which has been a hotbed of conflict between parents and school boards, must give parents prior notice if they intend to use any material with sexually explicit content, which it defines as "any description, picture, photograph, drawing, motion picture film, digital image or similar visual representation depicting sexual bestiality, a lewd exhibition of nudity, sexual excitement, sexual conduct or sadomasochistic abuse, coprophilia, urophilia, or fetishism."

    Parents will be allowed to review the potentially objectionable material and be given the opportunity for their child to be given an alternative in a process that schools will be required to create before the start of each school year.

    Just like with CRT, why are they upset when they claim they aren't teaching such things in the first place?

      First they laugh and sneer saying that it isn't taught and is nothing but some delusion pushed by the right, but when it gets prohibited then they freak out and declare it's censorship and akin to book burning.

        Right, they are not teaching, but it is a good thing that they are teaching it...

          Because they are bullies and when you don't go along with the bullies, they get the whole bully gang together to bully you harder.

            The libs really need to get over this notion that children are subjects of the state.

              Cover their eyes so they can't see us play
              Get out of the way

                      From what I could find the issue is specifically that Virginia defines homosexuality in and of itself as sexual conduct. Obviously it doesn't make sense to not have homosexuality equal to heterosexuality in any policy involving government institutions.

                        I don't see that distinction in the bill, not that I read it all...

                        Since homosexuality is abnormal I wouldn't object to the distinction...

                          Haven't we been told for years that the only difference between a homosexual and a heterosexual is their sexual preference? What other differences between us are you aware of?

                            I would dearly like to know which specific schools [and in which precise classes] are teaching:

                            "sexual bestiality, sadomasochistic abuse, coprophilia, urophilia, or fetishism."

                            I also am amused by the rather twee notion that the regulations are:

                            aimed at reinforcing parents in their right to decide what their children are exposed to and at protecting their innocence,


                            Those officials at the VDOE do not seem to have any idea of what often goes [either inside or outside school play-grounds]

                            Did they never play "doctors and nurses"?

                            It ain't necessarily so
                            ."
