Stop CSE in South African Schools

Comprehensive Sex Education is not approved by South African parents and is being taught in schools behind their back. The nature of the curriculum is destructive to children. Most CSE programmes include components such as:

  • Teaching that promiscuity is a right;
  • Promoting dangerous "alternative" sexual practices which increase the risk of sexually transmitted diseases;
  • Encouraging children to experiment sexually with members of the same sex and of the opposite sex;
  • Teaching children to advocate for so-called "sexual rights";
  • Exposure to explicit and p*rnographic content;
  • Encouraging children to use condoms at an early age without informing them of potential failure rates;
  • Disregarding parental values and parental involvement in education; and
  • Demeaning "traditional" moral, religious, and cultural values shared by families and the community.
This is a dangerous proposal that must be stopped. South African children should be taught holistically about sex, not from an agenda-driven ideological perspective that demeans our traditional cultural values.

We are deeply concerned that multiple UN agencies, federal and local governments, and school administrations are implementing, promoting and/or funding controversial comprehensive sexuality education programs that sexualize children and take away their innocence.

These programs go way beyond regular sex education and are designed to change all of the sexual and gender norms of society. They openly promote promiscuity, high-risk sexual behavior and sexual pleasure even to very young children.

Stop dangerous child sexuality programs in South Africa!

I write to express my concern at the continued attempts to indoctrinate South Africa's children with harmful and illicit ideas on human sexuality. This is being effected through a curriculum known as Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE).

CSE is not traditional sex education. It bypasses the values and authority of parents and teaches young children to experiment with high risk sexual practices and attempts to change the sexual and gender norms of African society.

I am distressed that international agencies and local supporters are again seeking to surreptitiously impose this objectionable curricula on the most vulnerable population of our nation – our children.

I am therefore calling upon you to:

  • Withdraw all on-going or intended programmes containing any and all elements of CSE;
  • Ban the re-introduction of any and all elements of CSE in its various connotations from any curricula or programme in South Africa;
  • Revise the curricula to teach including age-appropriate sex education that promotes:
  1. Wholesome, evidence-based, risk-avoidance and harm elimination,
  2. The ideals of abstinence, of sex within marriage, zero tolerance for all kinds of sexual activity for children (that is, persons under the age of consent),
  3. A biological view of gender, not gender fluidity, while offering compassion and assistance for those struggling with their sexuality.

This form of sex education curriculum should recognize and respect the rights of parents and guardians in guiding and influencing the education of their children.

I respectfully ask that you give this matter your urgent action. Decisive action is necessary if South Africa is to protect our vulnerable children from illogical philosophies with proven unhealthy outcomes. The future of our nation - and our nation's children - is at stake.

Sincerely,
[Your Name]
