Schools in New Jersey have approved lesson plans which tell children as young as ten that hormone blockers are a way to “manage puberty” and that masturbating “a few times a day” is a good way to relieve stress.
In one lesson, fifth grade students will be shown videos and provided with information about taking puberty blockers as a way to manage changes.
The animation entitled ‘Puberty and Transgender Youth’ tells students:
“Whether you identify as male, female, gender-queer or something else, you’re perfectly normal, and there are lots of ways to manage puberty so that it can be a fun, exciting time rather than a scary or stressful one”.
The video goes on to suggest that the 10-11 year-old youngsters might want to consider taking hormone blockers to “stop [their bodies] from changing”:
“After some discussion and counseling, you may be referred to an endocrinologist. Endocrinologists specialize in hormones, and they’re the most likely to prescribe puberty blockers for someone who wants them. Puberty blockers are medications that will stop your body from changing.”
Another lesson plan, again aimed at kids aged 10-11 years-old directs teachers to discuss masturbation with the children, even encouraging them to pleasure themselves “a few times a day” as a “physically safe way to express sexual feelings”.
The shocking cartoon entitled ‘Masturbation: Totally Normal’ shows an animated boy performing sex acts on himself under the covers.
Another clip within the video depicts a young girl admiring herself in a mirror seemingly in preparation to masturbate, before being disturbed by her mother’s calls.

Teachers are also instructed to direct children to the Amaze website, which features further video clips encouraging children as young as 9 to watch porn, advertising it to kids as “something everyone watches” and “hey, it’s free!”
Youngsters across the state of New Jersey will be subjected to this appalling material as from this coming September.
Apparently in an attempt to excuse the offensive, pornographic lesson plans, officials on behalf of Westerfield Public Schools said the curriculum in question was not mandatory by the state, but is instead a choice provided to schools:
“During a presentation at the February 22 Board of Education meeting, we provided an update on the district’s work to revise the Comprehensive Health and Physical Education curriculum. The presentation included a sample list of resources aligned to the New Jersey Student Learning Standards to be considered as school districts work on revisions to the health and PE curriculum”, said Superintendent Raymond Gonzalez.
“We made it clear at the meeting and subsequent meetings that these are resources only – they are not state-mandated – and that the district is in the process of developing its revised curriculum to meet state standards,” he attempted to reason.
New Jersey’s Democratic Governor Phil Murphy also defended the material to Fox News on Monday, suggesting that parents who oppose the lessons plans are merely attempting to “score political points and to further divide us – us vs. them – and I say that on behalf of the LGBTQIA+ communities”.
I spoke with @DanaPerino today about the concerns parents are expressing to me that New Jersey's new gender identify curriculum for little kids is way too extreme. It's clear Gov. Murphy isn't listening to parents.https://t.co/2h0BjlCrlk

Meanwhile, Republican New Jersey senator Holly Schepisi told Fox she thought the state had “lost its damn mind”.
