'What Does That Have to Do With Life?' Mom Demands to Know
A Georgia mother is furious over a sixth-grade health class homework quiz given to her 12-year old daughter, and she's pulling her out of the class as a result.
Students were asked to answer simple questions like what is a "woman who is attracted to women," and what is a "person who identifies as a man."
The answers include words like lesbian, gay, lesbian, male, female, and transgender.Â
"Why are they teaching that in school?" Octavia Parks asked Fox 5.Â "What does that have to do with life?"
"We're talking about a sixth grader who still watches Nickelodeon," Parks says. "I'm not ready to explain what these words are nor what they mean."
Parks' admission is the exact reason why the school needs to take overÂ â€“ because 12-year olds need to know about basic human sexuality.
"If a kid wants to know about the gender or know about the sex preference it should come from the parents not from the school," Â McClain tells the local Fox station.Â "I will be removing her from that class and I'm also going to take it to the board of education to see what they have to say about it as well."
One News Now, a website published by the American Family Association, an anti-LGBT hate group, says the mom "is not alone in voicing outrage after the schoolâ€™s health teacher assigned a 'sexual identity' quiz to her sixth-grade class â€“ an assignment that included LGBT terms such as 'bisexual' and lesbian."
"Now that the homosexual agenda being implemented inside the classroom has been exposed, Parks has taken a proactive step to protect her child by signing a consent form to remove her from the health class," ONN says.
