Part 2: School has started and the Woke Agenda

School has started and the graphic, sexually exploitative new learning standards are now being implemented in many of the school districts across the Garden State. More and more parents and concerned stakeholders are attending school board meetings, calling school superintendents, principals, and teachers to voice their objections to the unwarranted assault on the innocence of their children.

What’s even worse, the New Jersey Comprehensive Health and Sex Education Standards are diminishing real education like math, language arts, finance, and science, along with other vital workplace skills necessary for a child’s future.

So what is so objectionable? Just what is in the “New Jersey Student Learning Standards – Comprehensive Health and Physical Education?”

We are going to highlight a few content items in this second of a series on the NJ Board of Education 2020 “woke” Sex Education Standards.

Now let’s look at 8th grade.

2.1.8.SSH.7: Identify factors that are important in deciding whether and when to engage in sexual behaviors. 2.1.8.SSH.8: Identify factors that can affect the ability to give or perceive consent to sexual activity (e.g., body image, self-esteem, alcohol, other substances). 2.1.8.SSH.9: Define vaginal, oral, and anal sex. 2.1.8.SSH.10: Identify short and long-term contraception and safer sex methods that are effective and describe how to access and use them (e.g., abstinence, condom). 2.1.8.SSH.11: Develop a plan to eliminate or reduce risk of unintended pregnancy and STIs (including HIV).

The NJ Department of Education has been promoting sexual activity to grade school children for decades. The Murphy Administration has now taken it to the point of overt sexual exploitation. The above section of standards does not even suggest waiting to engage in sexual activity. The tone and content clearly make the assumption that minor children will engage in sexual acts, including some that are extremely dangerous, leading to lifelong physical and emotional consequences. This above excerpt from the Sex Education Learning Standards is a lot to unpack. For now, let’s focus on two items.


2.1.8.SSH.9: Define vaginal, oral, and anal sex.

The above “Core Idea”: SSH (Social and Sexual Health) and its’ “Performance Expectation” Define vaginal, oral, and anal sex, is age inappropriate and sexually exploitive.

The New Jersey Age of Consent is 16 years old. In the United States, the age of consent is the minimum age at which an individual is considered legally old enough to consent to participation in sexual activity. Individuals aged 15 or younger in New Jersey are not legally able to consent to sexual activity, and such activity may result in prosecution for statutory rape.

The New Jersey statutory rape law is violated when a person has consensual sexual intercourse with an individual under age. A close-in-age exemption (known as Romeo and Juliet laws) exists allowing minors between ages 13 and 15 to engage in sexual congress with a partner up to 4 years older. The age of consent is raised to 18 if the older partner is a parent, guardian, sibling, relative closer than a 4th cousin, or an individual with some authority over the younger party (for example, a teacher or the victim’s boss).

The age of sexual consent is 16. Eighth graders are 12, 13, and 14 years of age. Schools are teaching detailed sexual (in some instances graphic) content years before they can legally consent to sex. And, as described in Part 1 a minor is not capable of making these life-changing decisions until their mid-twenties and beyond. Teaching eighth-graders sex is scientifically age-inappropriate.

The alimentary canal, aka the gastrointestinal tract, begins at the oral cavity and ends at the anus. The anus is biologically designed as an exit, not an entrance. That is its function and design. Teaching that the anus is a sex organ is patently false and can be extremely dangerous.


The Murphy mandates go further.

  • 2.1.8.CHSS.2: Describe the state and federal laws related to age of consent, minors’ ability to consent to health care, confidentiality in a healthcare setting, child pornography, sexting, safe haven and sex trafficking.
  • 2.1.8.CHSS.3: Identify the state and federal laws related to minors’ access to sexual healthcare services, including pregnancy and STIs/HIV prevention, testing, care, and treatment.
  • 2.1.8.CHSS.4: Identify community resources and/or other sources of support, such as trusted adults, including family members, caregivers, and school staff, that students can go to if they are or someone they know is being sexually harassed, abused, assaulted, exploited, or trafficked.
  • 2.1.8.CHSS.5: Identify medically accurate sources of information about STIs, including HIV, such as local STIs /HIV prevention, steps to obtain PrEP and PEP, testing, and treatment resources.

Focusing on 2.1.8.CHSS.5. Identify medically accurate sources of information about STIs (sexually transmitted infections), including HIV, such as local STIs/HIV prevention, steps to obtain PrEP and Pep, testing, and treatment resources.

Here is another medical fact: all viruses mutate! All!

HIV the human immuno virus, which targets the very trigger of the human immune system; the T cells have now mutated into multiple strains. Prior to COVID at a hearing in the Connecticut legislature on vaccine mandates, a research scientist from Yale University stated “we don’t have a vaccine for HIV because the virus constantly mutates.” PrEP and PEP are drugs. PrEP stands for pre-exposure prophylaxis and alleges to reduce your chance of getting HIV from sex or injection drug use. When taken as prescribed, pharmaceutical companies claim PrEP is highly effective for preventing HIV.

According to the CDC there are two pills approved for use as PrEP: Truvada® and Descovy®.

  • Truvada® is for people at risk through sex or injection drug use.

  • Descovy® is for people at risk through sex. Descovy is not for people assigned female at birth who are at risk for HIV through receptive vaginal sex.

Apretude is the only shot approved for use as PrEP. Apretude is for people at risk through sex who weigh at least 77 pounds (35 kg).

It is important to note that an average child in 6th grade and up can weigh 77 pounds

Notice that nowhere in this section of the standards does it even suggest or recommend parental involvement or consent!

PEP is an emergency medication and its administration requires a visit to the emergency room. Why would you need PEP? Your child can be sexually active and find out that the person they just had intimate sexual relations with is HIV positive or has full-blown AIDS. PEP is given to allegedly prevent acquiring HIV/AIDS should your child find out that their sex partner is infected.

The Murphy administration, through his Department of Education, is teaching your child dangerous behaviors that are a threat to their very lives. This curriculum will affect your children far into the future. It’s time to stop sexualizing our children!
