This week Ontario's Premiere Doug Ford announced that when students return to school in September, they will be taught the old sex-education curriculum rather then the modernized one introduced by Kathleen Wynne's Liberal Party in 2015. This decision by Doug Ford, Education Minister Lisa Thompson and the newly elected Progressive Conservative majority government is nothing short of a disgrace. The curriculum that our so-called "leaders" are reverting back to is from 1998. Which means that not only will Ontario students no longer be taught about sam-sex relationship, there will be no discussion about consent, gender identity, gender-based violence, sexual harassment, homophobia, sexting, cyberbullying and online predators. Putting aside my personal sadness that one day a future child of mine could be sitting in a classroom and wonder why his parent's relationship isn't talked about publicly, I am far more disturbed by the child who will grow up not being taught about the many different colours across the LGBTQ+ spectrum. #EDUCATIONMATTERS. Hate, violence, ignorance and discrimination only flourish where inclusivity and differences are ignored and pushed to the shadows. Ontario students and families deserve better. . . . . . #dougford #LisaThompson #regression #middleages #sexed #education #ignorance #pcparty #ontariopoli #canada #yourstodiscover #ontario #fordnation #pc #shameful #teachscience #onpoli #supportsexed #onsexed #madasf #sexed #sexeducation #sexedmatters #family #children #kidsmatter #markitproud #lgbtq #loveislove #lovewins

What a soft landing for your space probe.

It’s criminal to deprive our children of education and knowledge. It’s even more criminal doing it while knowing that their ignorance could easily turn to hate as they grow. Here are some of the topics that our kids will no longer learn about: - Consent - Online bullying and sexting - Same-sex marriage - Gender identity - Masturbation #shameful #teachscience #onpoli #supportsexed #onsexed #madasf #sexed #sexeducation #sexedmatters #dougford #family #children #kidsmatter

Why do we have armpit hair? It helps wick sweat from your underarms and it also releases sexy pheromones which can come in handy when attracting a potential partner. #sexy #bodyhairdontcare #armpithair #gurlstalk #illustration #ink #paint #sketch #pencil #girl #sexeducation #sexedmatters

What came before razors and wax strips? Dating as far back to Egyptian times people would self groom using flint, seashells and pumice stones.. freakin ouch! It’s also interesting to know that both men and women removed hair from all over their bodies in those times! #bodyhairdontcare #history #egyptians #hairremoval #historyofhairremoval #genderisasocialconstruct #dontgenderbodyhair #seashells #flint #pumice #pubichair #illustration #ink #colour #pink #illustrator #sexeducation #sexedmatters

Equipping kids with the skills necessary for understanding their bodies establishing their boundaries will help them have open conversations about consent when they're older! #consent #nomeansno #permission #sexeducation #sexedmatters #talktokids #parentingadvice #parentingteens #thetalk #haveit #thetalkinstitute repost girlology

I'd put money on it that whoever wrote this had simply experienced a delayed ovulation, and was now well into the luteal phase of their menstrual cycle 😉 • While we laugh at this (because let's face it, it IS a funny meme!), it's also a sad indication of the extreme lack of menstrual cycle awareness among women worldwide. • What is to blame? A lack of education. If Fertility Awareness methods were taught effectively in high school Sex Ed classes, this woman could have known exactly where she was in her menstrual cycle and whether there was a risk of pregnancy. She also likely would have realised long ago that there are a multitude of ways you can support your health right throughout the different phases of your cycle so as to minimise or eliminate symptoms of PMS. • Knowing which menstrual phase you're in is as simple as tracking cervical mucus and basal body temperature, and then interpreting your observations using a studied FABM (Fertility Awareness Based Method). • One woman doing her best to combat this lack of education is Demi of @brightgirlhealth - she has recently launched a wonderful initiative to take menstrual education seminars into high schools nationwide here in Australia. • Her seminars are a wonderful start in terms of educating our teens about their endocrine system, and even include an overview of charting!
