I csn understand how some would find this disturbing and a bad thing.
Let me exercise your mind before we judge what the mind of our young should or shouldn't learn about.
In ancient cultures teenage men, we're Pharoah, kings, princes, in control of armies.. very young man throughout our ancestry, have had the capacity to handle human choices and responsibilities.
Humanity within society, more so in yhe western world, are Bombarded with sexuality and sexual impressions via media. Even Walt Disney has sexual impressions..
Teenage pregnancy is outrages in yhis current era. Chuldren behave like sexual bunnies.. the influence of visual media and audio media talking about sex and revealing much skin and sex appeal of grown woman and men, encourages thus said behavior.
These children, are expanding minds in a universe of unlimited choices and avenues. They will be fully ripen men and women in short time.. life is short.
I believe teaching them about their bodies, emotional and mental states when engaging with another human being, is vitaly important.
Today's culture and of past; have been brainwashed to hide their natural self and beauty of the body they exist with. . Alot of unbalanced has come from hiding our bodies and self from others..
It's as if a male or female body has top secret parts that shall never be revealed to other humans. This is closing off to the world in general, and stuns what I believe is spiritual growth.
These said children; are minds, hearts, consciousness, within a body. I think the sooner they learn about themselves, the better and quicker they can develop and make the right choices in a world of un limited choices.
But if biology disturbs you, and human intimate relations. . I understand how this curriculum could.make you uncomfortable and speak out for these children

Whats wrong with educating kids on how men and womens bodys work to procreate, or to educate them on what sex is.
Better in schools than on the internet.
The "OISE- the place where many of our teachers are trained- has invited James Kincaid, author of "Child Loving" to speak at an upcoming conference Sat Oct. 19 at 9 am. Mr. Kincaid's objective is to "demystify pedophilia", and he claims that our society has falsely demonized child-molesters."

To a degree I can agree with this. Matters dealing with the more explicit aspect of sexuality are better suited to the home for education.
That said, being gay in school is incredibly difficult. Its hard enough to come of age in an environment where people don't see you as abnormal.

The state should stay out of the bedroom.
The only role the state should take is to enforce that rape is always wrong and children are not for sex. Ergo, the state has no business sexualising children or childhood.
