Safe Schools: Sorry, chef, but the entire sex-ed menu's off!

We are told the Safe Schools Coalition Australia (SSCA) program is to prevent bullying of GLBT students. It was certainly sold as an anti-bullying program.
Staff from the Australian Research Centre into Sex Health and Society (ARCSHS) at La Trobe University in Melbourne, which produced the Safe Schools program, identified the safety theme (that is, “Safe” Schools) as an effective marketing strategy: “The marketing of this research was consciously directed towards creating and supporting processes of social change. … The safety paradigm endowed the cause with respectability; anyone could get behind such a banner without fear of suspicion and criticism.”
But Roz Ward, one of the main architects of Safe Schools in Victoria, has publically admitted that the program is not about bullying, it’s about gender and sexual diversity.
SSCA has been exposed by Queensland Nationals MP George Christensen as recommending to students organisations and websites with pornographic content and which promote the use of sex toys and oral and anal sex, and offer advice on chest binding and penis tucking for transgender students.
What has all this to do with preventing bullying?
And now we have a further offering in the sex-education stakes based on preventing “gender-based” or “domestic violence”. Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews has announced $21.8 million for a new program, “Building Respectful Relationships” (BRRs), which includes activities such as writing sexualised personal advertisements and answering questions such as: “Who has responsibility for making decisions about sex and romance in your relationship?”
“You don’t have to be a certain way just because you have a penis. You don’t have to be a certain way just because you have a vagina.
“We’re not gonna care about that. We’re gonna do what we wanna do. We’re gonna be who we wanna be.”
And Years 7/8 are asked the highly intrusive question: “How do people learn what they enjoy sexually?”
There is also a lesson on pornography. So the Practical Guide to Love, Sex and Relationships could be the first introduction to pornography for an 11 or 12-year-old student, regardless of whether that child would have gone on to view pornography.

Every child comes from and needs BOTH a mother and a father. Same-sex "marriage" intentionally keeps either a mother or a father from the child. Government should protect the child through upholding traditional marriage.
There is “a time to be silent, and a time to speak”. (Ecclesiastes 3:7). Now is the time to speak, so please speak up and defend children, truth and freedom.
