Parents and parental rights supporters have recently brought attention to their cause by pointing out that the material taught in their children’s schools is so obscene that television networks refuse to broadcast it.
What Some Schools Are Teaching Kids Is So Obscene, Parental Rights Activists Can’t Even Read It On TV https://t.co/jajRDT788H via @DailyCaller

The Federal Communications Commission prohibits obscene content “at all times of day,” and parental rights advocates say this law has led television and radio networks to restrict them from talking about obscene content in school curriculums.
Erika Sanzi, director of outreach at Parents Defending Education, described how obscene the material must be to get to this point.
“When my kids were younger or just in my earlier life, I can’t think of a time that I would be talking about a children’s book, and I couldn’t discuss it on the radio,” said Sanzi. “This is a new phenomenon where you cannot discuss what is in a book used for children.”
In one instance, Sanzi described an encounter with a television producer who would not allow her to bring up the “Human Growth and Development” curriculum taught to 10-year-olds in a Wisconsin school district.
“There was anal sex, oral sex, and vaginal sex,” Sanzi explained. “She was like, ‘Oh, my God, like you can’t say that.’”
“The main thing that she was telling me was that I couldn’t use explicit terms for body parts and I couldn’t describe these different types of sex that the kids learn about,” Sanzi said.
Schools in New Jersey are teaching fifth graders how “pregnancy can be achieved” and introducing eighth graders to different types of sex, including anal sex, and the material is so obscene that parents cannot discuss or display the content on the television or radio.
At a recent protest, Scarlett Johnson, head of Ozaukee, Wisconsin’s Moms For Liberty chapter, held a sign with the pictures and words used in a Wauwatosa School District’s sexual education curriculum. She was told by a cameraman for a news station, however, that they would not be able to show footage of her sign due to the obscenity.
“He said, ‘I am going to have to blur the images so much that no one will be able to tell what they’re looking at,’” said Johnson. “The language on there, there was anal sex, there was erection, wet dreams.”
“There were the graphic images of the condoms and then the images of the vulva, vagina, penis,” she continued. “And they all came straight from the curriculum.”
