Taxpayers could be getting more than they bargained for with the Victorian Government sexualising children through its $21.8 million Respectful Relationships program, according to the Australian Christian Lobby.
The classroom videos linked to and approved by the new Respectful Relationships program discussed on ABC’s Q&A program last night assume under-age students will be engaging in sexual activity and exploring all its possibilities.
ACL Victorian Director Dan Flynn said that the program purports to teach students how to make good relationship choices, but instead through the Practical Guide to Love, Sex and Relationships, developed by La Trobe University’s Australian Research Centre in Sex, Health and Society (ARCSHS), it normalises sexual behaviours for students from the age of 13.
The La Trobe centre was also behind the controversial Safe School program which teaches students that gender is fluid.
“The link between the early sexualisation of children and ‘grooming’ practiced by paedophiles, which seeks to normalise sex for children, is of concern to many Australian parents,” Mr Flynn said.
Ironically, in the midst of such disturbingly sexually explicit imagery, one of the videos acknowledges that ‘it is illegal in Australia to show a person under the age of 16 an indecent object or film’.
“The appearance of content in the classroom that most parents would banish from TV and computer screens at home, is therefore concerning,” Mr Flynn said.Share
