208 ratings | 9232 views
Thousands of Ontario students protested changes to the sex-ed curriculum by walking out of their classes on Friday. Students say the curriculum, created in 1998, is out of date and doesn’t address issues including same-sex relationships, consent and sexting.

Frank's repeating the proper liberal buzzwords. Tough words from someone who hasn't left high school. The indoctrination is almost complete. I'm sure no teachers were involved in pushing their agendas. LOL!

So children run the education here now? Just brainwashing them at an extremely formative age to grow up and finish this coyntry off. What a joke, get poisonous feminism out of schools.

If these kids want to learn about men sticking one another in their alimentary canals, they can do so on their own time.

Go to the library and read some books about the 1940s. Look at issues far away from yourself.

What does the "consent" part of the curriculum cover? Does it teach students that you can always say no but the perpetrator can always ignore your no? Or that you should be a responsible drinker so you can protect yourself? Or that you should never leave your food or drinks unattended, just in case?
Jim F (2 months ago)
Kids have always done this stuff. It's so meaningless. Doesn't anyone on cbc remember being a kid and getting all fired up over totally insignificant issues, or just plain old using it as an excuse to not be in school? Only difference is now the lefty teachers are using the kids to further their own agenda. Pump the story all you want, but they're just kids when you don't agree, and when it suits your agenda, it's "the voice of the future". No one really gives a dam.

We need a govt that is reflective of the people, rather than a govt who raises our children to be reflective of them. We live in a country where youth are raised according to how the govt wishes them to vote.

The average intelligence of the CBC amounts to about the age of fourteen. using children is truly sick! Something the CBC does all the time. Look how confused they are! Defund the CBC and save our children from this form of child abuse! If your a child taking part in this you are truly being brainwashed. Way tog go Doug Ford! keep fighting against these sicko minded liberals. Maybe it's truly time Canadians stopped paying taxes if this form of brainwashing mind control propaganda they are going to force upon our children. I believe an investigation into the CBC and pedophilia along with our school system might be needed Canada. We will probably be disgusted at what we learn.

Based on science there are only two genders. Social constructs should not be taught as educational literature. That should be based on awareness programs. Not to be taught in schools. It’s just ridiculous

Watch or read The Lord of the Flies to see what happens when the kids make their own rules. They're mad that the indoctrination that they've already been subjected to won't be applied to the next bunch of innocent minds. It'd be a shame the young children won't be lied to about how many genders there are because they really want to alter truth,

Why is it absolutely so that it's the parents job to explain about sexuality when they can not even explain their own prejudices in life. You should learn for life at school, right?

I was driving in Toronto Near St. Joseph's hospital aproximately 1:15pm Friday afternoon. I was shocked by a group of students from nearby elementary school shouting at cars and pedestrians holding protest signs. I rolled down my window for a very young student 12yrs old was yelling at ppl paasing by on the side walk and flashing his banner in their faces. I asked why are they out of class? He replied... we were given permission to skip class today by our teachers to protest our rights. I then asked where are their adult supervision for they were not old enough to be doing this on their own. I was given no answer. This was troubling to witness. Do their parents know that their young children were skipping class to part take in a protest without parental or adult supervision by their teachers and schools. Not impressed by these teachers actions. Something happens to these children who do their parents sue? The school board!

Cyber bullying and sexting can often be avoided. Teach respect, kindness, and the golden rule, which is: "Treat others the way you want to be treated," there would be no need to talk about consent. There are only 2 genders, and homosexuality is not normal or good, because it ceases procreation. Those who believe otherwise have mental, physical, or psychological illnesses or disorders.

Probally any kid that wanted to stay behind and learn was bullied and peer pressured
JT VJ (2 months ago)
Teaching kids about consent will prevent situations of molestation. A child should know what to do in those situations. Also, they used to be against mentioning of homosexuality in schools. Don't be afraid of different points of view, give kids some credit they can handle seeing different points of view.

They look like brainwashed dummies to me.

Dear conservative old people, congratulations for living in the YouTube CBC comment section. In your old age, that is positive. Even though I would argue, you might want to leave your comfortable seat to loose some weight and prejudice and go out into the world, talk to REAL PEOPLE (!), especially anyone younger than 25 TO LEARN a thing or two. These kind of demonstrations have nothing to do with you! There is no reason to hate on children (!) publicly. Have you no shame? Imagine the arrogance one needs to have judging a whole generation from the comfort of your own home about things you have no clue about. Why are you so bitter? Who hurt you? I just hope we don't end up like you, when you're long gone. Never stop learning. Always keep listening. And maybe visit a gym more than disliking every non-conservative youtube video you see? Might be important for your health :)

The government removing a curriculum about consent and being considerate without consent and without consideration. How can you NOT get angry?
Derek Woodford (2 months ago)
Because most people are already adults and we can see right through this agenda. There is nothing innocent or informative about the curriculum being removed, it's depraved and sick and will lead to the end of human civilization, if they had their way.

As a parent, I care for my children and their generation. To me, that means encouraging people, when they are old enough and mature enough, to have loving, long term relationships that will hopefully usher in the next generation. I understand that traditional marriage may not suit everyone, but for the sake of our society, it should be encouraged ahead of the LGBTQ...... Ideology. It is the people that voted for Ford ( and I'm sure some that did not) that care about the next generation. By the way, we are also the ones paying for this education system and we deserve a say.

The committee which created the curriculum was headed by a PEDOPHILE. How many of these kids know that? Lol they are still going to update the curriculum with proper consultation. It was done too hastily and constructed by the wrong people. The ignorant talking points coming out of that kid's mouth at the end were just insufferable.

Bottom line, as long as the government placates the uber religious right and it's aversion to human sexuality we hurt our kids and leave them in the dark. Knowledge can only empower our kids, keeping them naive and ignorant only holds us back.

I'm all for that as well, as long as it's not preaching, just facts and you teach about all different religions and not just the the big three.

That doesn't make sense, teaching your children about human sexuality doesn't sexualize your children, it enlightens then about human sexuality. Nothing to be afraid of.

I agree with the knowledge part, but you can't just force the ideology of being anything other than heterosexual down kids throats. Don't make this or that sexuality seem cooler than the other, maybe just tell them what there is and let them decide. Be indifferent when educating kids.
