“As sure as the earth is 6,000 years old and tomatoes are poisonous, we will be reverting to the old sex-ed curriculum this fall, while we research what the Dead Sea scrolls have to say on the subject.” By @paulmakingway via @outandabouter: https://t.co/t54nBsscHn pic.twitter.com/nSVE0nDXyH

To make a long story short, Ontario’s new premier is making good on his promise to scrap the sex ed curriculum we’re currently using in Ontario….leaving us to fall back on the 1998 version of the curriculum…which was pre smart phones and snapchat let alone important legal changes – doesn’t talk about gender diversity or sexual diversity – and doesn’t use the word consent. So:
Here’s sex educator Nadine Thornhill’s @NadineThornhill plan to put the content of the new – now old – curriculum into a set of videos on her youtube channel.
Also, all the thank yous to everyone who’s supported #SaveSexEd project. The series will launch in September on my YouTube channel. You can help by subscribing to my channel and asking folks you know to do the same! https://t.co/s9j9ukJm0j
