A YouTube channel with over 220,000 subscribers is pushing sex education for kids that includes topics like pornography, abortion, gender confusion, and masturbation, as reported by The Federalist.
Amaze Org says on its website that it hopes to “take the awkward” out of sex education for children with its free, animated videos that leverage…the expertise of master sexuality educators, the creativity of animation professionals, the input of young people, and the power of the internet.” The site also features “Amaze Jr.,” which targets preschool-aged children through the third grade.
The organization’s mission, according to the site, is to “provide young adolescents around the globe with medically accurate, age-appropriate, affirming, and honest sex education they can access directly online.” They also supply curricula for schools, parents, and “allies.”
Amaze Org’s colorful, animated videos have already been viewed by over 60 million people through their website, YouTube, Instagram, Snapchat, and TikTok.
One video features a purple monster who tells viewers that abortion is always appropriate if it is what a “pregnant person” desires. The video goes on to list several reasons why it might be advantageous to end a preborn baby’s life and advises minors that they can sometimes bypass parental consent to have an abortion by going directly to a judge. The narrator reassures viewers that abortion is “very safe” but cautions adolescents to carefully research abortion providers so they can avoid pregnancy crisis centers described as “fake clinics that exist only to try to talk a person out of an abortion.”
Another animation shows that Queer couples can have children through surrogacy provided by a “person with a uterus,” if they like.
The organization’s list of partners includes the International Planned Parenthood Federation, Queer Lexicon, and the UNFPA, the United Nations sexual and reproductive health agency whose objective is “to deliver a world where every pregnancy is wanted.” Advocates for Youth, Amaze Org’s managing partner, aims “to shift the societal paradigm of adolescent sexuality away from a negative emphasis on fear and ignorance toward the acceptance of sexual development as healthy and the belief that adolescents are a valuable resource.” The videos are also used as curriculum in several schools throughout the country.
The mother of a nine-year-old in New Jersey Public Schools recently posted to Twitter one of the videos her child saw in class. The video, featuring animated sperm and a gay male couple with a baby, elicited several responses.
“Do they ever consider kids are more sexually active ‘younger’ because of stuff like this? Instead of doing everything they should to delay that behavior? Like….letting them be KIDS!! Just my opinion…” one user tweeted.
“Let’s put aside the obvious problem with this insanely stupid policy for a minute. There are far too many 9 year-olds who can’t read or write at grade level, but let’s give them a crash course on this,” wrote another.
“For 9 year olds?! This is ridiculous,” a user chimed in, adding “A better use of their time would be how to learn how to properly construct a sentence using the English language.”
“It’s almost like Planned Parenthood would stand to increase profits, from many preteen and teen girls getting pregnant,” wrote another.
The dissemination of the videos on YouTube seem to directly violate its own content policy, which forbids material “that targets young minors and families” that “contains sexual themes, violence, obscene, or other mature themes not suitable for young audiences.”
