Washington State Mom Shocked, Shocked! At Daughter's "Graphic" Sex Ed Book

Ouch, my delicate sensibilities!

A mother in Washington State is protesting the school's issuance of a sex ed book that discusses, among other things, masturbation.

The book, "What's the Big Secret," which is allowed at the Oak Harbor School District, shows how boys and girls differ and talks about "different types of touching."

"This is one of the first that definitely caught my eye, talking about masturbation when you are 10 years old. What do you need to read that for? I'm not so upset about the book itself. I think they should be sending home permission slips, making sure parents are aware that the book is there," she told the website.


I suspect that the mother in question is upset that her daughter is learning about The Big Secret before she is. I'm not sure that I even know The Big Secret.

Woah, people read her last comments. She says not that the content is problematic, but that parents were not made aware the book was accessible nor up to parental decision. I see absolutely no issue with parents being made aware of the book and provided the opportunity to restrict their children from being able to access it, should they wish to. This is no different than giving fair warning to parents a sex ed course will occur and giving parents enough time to make a decision to not allow their children to participate.

I wish I had parents that involved in what their kids are learning in school or have access to in the school's library.

I'm entirely on the mom's side here.
