A Florida School Offered 6th-Grade Students Instruction On Reproductive Parts Not Matching Who They Are

As Florida’s Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis battled Disney and other leftists over forcing the LGBTQ agenda on the state’s youngest children, sixth-graders at a public school in Gainesville were being told “people can have reproductive parts that don’t match who they are.”

As Florida’s Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis battled Disney and other leftists over forcing the LGBTQ agenda on the state’s youngest children, sixth-graders at a public school in Gainesville were being told “people can have reproductive parts that don’t match who they are.”

The conservative website Campus Reform reported Thursday that students at the P.K. Yonge Developmental Research School, an affiliate of the University of Florida, were informed about “people with a penis” – instead of boys – and “people with a vulva” – rather than girls – during a class on “human growth and development education.”

Campus Reform noted that the presentation discussed gender dysphoria, gender identity, and sexual orientation.

It included ideas such as:

“Most people who have biological male reproductive parts are boys and most people who have biological female reproductive parts are girls, but sometimes people can have reproductive parts that don’t match who they are.”

Sexes “assigned” at birth include male, female, and “other/intersex.” People also can be attracted to men, women, and “other gender(s).”

As for one’s church, “Regardless of your own religion, a faith-based organization may have biases based on their own beliefs and teachings that may limit the extent of the sexuality-related information.”

The list of genders includes cisgender, transgender, non-binary, and genderqueer. Those were a “few examples” of gender identity, but “not all.”

Similarly, the list of sexualties encompassed heterosexual, gay/lesbian, bi-sexual, pansexual, asexual, and “aromantic.” Again this was a few examples, but “not all.”

It added, “The only way to prevent STDs and pregnancy 100% is abstinence.”

The course was “opt out,” which means parents could ask to have their children excused.

The course also was taught as DeSantis and Disney bickered over the new Parental Rights in Education law, which bans school districts and classroom teachers from implementing lesson plans on gender identity and sexual orientation to students in grades K-3.

The law would not have stopped this class because it didn’t take effect until July 1, and it applies only in K-3 classrooms.

UF Interim Director of Strategic Communications Cynthia Roldan defended the instruction as “age appropriate.”

“The University of Florida’s P.K. Yonge Developmental Research School’s human growth and development curriculum aligns with state and federal guidelines to ensure that its content is age appropriate and grounded in science,” Roldan told Campus Reform.

The “curriculum in question is currently under review by P.K. Yonge administration in anticipation of forthcoming technical guidance from the Florida Department of Education to ensure its instruction continues to be in compliance with state law, with the goal of completing the review before it is taught again in Spring 2023,” Roldan added.

But Campus Reform reported that UF’s LGBTQ+ Affairs Office provides materials for classrooms that, among other things, offer advice on how to create “inclusive environments” and “safe spaces” for students, “regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression.” And apparently regardless of grade.
