Oppose; this will actually help pedophiles

If our kids aren't taught age appropriate terms about sexuality and relationship and their mandated reporters are now unable to talk to them how will kids report abuse? How will they identify what is and isn't okay at home? How many kids have suffered abuse bc their 'uncle licked their cookie' and a teacher didn't pick up cookie meant vagina. And now we can't even talk about consensual relationships? Sex and relationships are part of life, kids are curious, kids are gay and know it, and it doesn't matter how uncomfortable it makes adults it's still true. Let's actually protect the children, including the gay ones, but giving them access to knowledge and compassion. Ffs I can't believe y'all are considering this, I'm going to remember that next election.
