    by Reagan Reese   The Virginia Department of Education (VDOE) is finishing model policies for school districts to give parents notice about lessons featuring “sexually explicit content,” according to the Richmond Times-Dispatch. VDOE policy requires schools to post all “sexually explicit content,” including all materials used for the lessons and curriculum, on the school’s website and also requires parents to be alerted at least 30 days before the lessons take place. The policy says it is designed to help parents make decisions for their children “in accordance with their customs, faith and values.” “Additionally, local school boards should develop policies that provide parents the opportunity to change their decision by providing notice to the school,” it says. Republican Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin signed an April bill mandating the adoption of the model policies by January. The public comment period on the model policies concluded on Aug. 3, according to the Richmond Times-Dispatch The American Civil Liberties Union of Virginia argued that the model policy will “lead to classroom censorship,” according to an Aug. 2 comment sent to VDOE Superintendent Jillian Balow. “As drafted, the proposed model...
    More than 600 Virginia students are urging the state’s Department of Education to change guidelines they say would classify any references to LGBTQIA+ people and events as sexually explicit content. In April, Gov. Glenn Youngkin signed SB 656, a bill that requires parents to be notified when school materials include sexually explicit content. It also requires school systems to offer a non-explicit option if parents ask for it. In a letter, students from several Virginia school systems said the state should create guidelines regarding SB 656 “that clarify that the LGBTQIA+ community is not inherently sexual.” Under Virginia law, homosexuality is explicitly defined as “sexual conduct.” And the law considers “sexually explicit content” to include “any picture, photograph, drawing, motion picture film, digital image or similar visual representation depicting sexual bestiality, a lewd exhibition of nudity, sexual excitement, sexual conduct or sadomasochistic abuse, coprophilia, urophilia, or fetishism.” As part of the bill, the Virginia Department of Education was tasked with developing policies that notify parents when such materials are used. Each school system has until Jan. 1 to adopt measures in...
    Republican candidate Ryan Kelley said that if elected, he would charge Michigan school boards with felonies if they failed to remove 'sexually explicit content.' On Monday, real estate broker and Michigan Republican gubernatorial candidate Ryan D. Kelley posted a video to his TikTok account to say that if elected, he would charge state school boards with felonies if they refuse to remove "sexually explicit content" from Michigan public schools. "One of the biggest problems in Michigan public schools is the sexually explicit content that is being offered and available to students in our schools across the state of Michigan," Kelley says in the video. "Parents are showing up all over the state at school board meetings expressing their concerns, requesting that this type of material be removed from the schools, and a lot of times it falls on deaf ears to the school boards." Kelley said that if elected governor, he would take "swift action" to charge any school boards that failed to remove such material from their schools with felonies, citing a 1978 Michigan law that made it a...
    Should parents be notified whenever their kids are exposed to “sexually explicit” content in schools? That could soon be the case in Virginia. Legislation that would require local school districts adopt policies notifying parents of any “sexually explicit” content passed the Virginia Senate on Wednesday with a 20-18 vote. More Virginia General Assembly News More Virginia News More Education News Two Democrats — Sens. Lynwood Lewis, D-Accomack, and Monty Mason, D-Williamsburg — sided with Senate Republicans in supporting the bill, which is expected to breeze through the GOP-controlled House of Delegates. What is or isn’t “sexually explicit” isn’t defined in the bill itself. According to the 2006 Code of Virginia § 2.2-2827 – Restrictions on state employee access to information infrastructure: “Sexually explicit content” means (i) any description of or (ii) any picture, photograph, drawing, motion picture film, digital image or similar visual representation depicting sexual bestiality, a lewd exhibition of nudity, as nudity is defined in § 18.2-390, sexual excitement, sexual conduct or sadomasochistic abuse, as also defined in § 18.2-390, coprophilia, urophilia, or fetishism.

    The explicit content in "Gender Queer" became the subject of a 30-second TV ad released by Independent Women's voice that showed adult voters what content was available to students in Virginia school districts. Local TV stations in Virginia refused to air the ad because of the sexually explicit content, citing federal law that prohibits pornography on air. Each of the authors of the controversial books contested the claim that their work contained pedophilia. In accordance with district policy, after receiving the formal complaint, two committees were established consisting of school administrators, librarians, parents, and students above the age of 18 to consider whether the books were appropriate for high-school age readers. After reading and reviewing the books, both committees unanimously recommended that they should remain available to students. The committee that reviewed "Lawn Boy," which contains passages in which a young adult character reflects on sexual encounters he had with another boy when they were both in fourth grade, determined that the book is "an accessible examination of race, class, socio-economic struggle, and...
    A Virginia school board is moving to remove any literature labeled "sexually explicit" from its library shelves. The Spotsylvania County School Board unanimously voted to direct staff members to remove any literature that contains "sexually explicit" content from its library shelves. The order was filed after a parent complained about the presence of LGBT content in the school's literature, according to the Free Lance-Star . "I think we should throw those books in a fire," board member Rabih Abuismail said. SCHOOL PRINCIPAL ARRESTED ON SEXUAL MISCONDUCT CHARGES Kirk Twigg, another board member, agreed, saying he wanted to "see the books before we burn them so we can identify within our community that we are eradicating this bad stuff." The directive will remove any sexually explicit content from shelves, although it remains unclear how it defines "sexually explicit." The board stated its intent to review the criteria for material being "objectionable" at a later review of the library's literary content. The incident was inspired by a parent discovering 33 Snowfish by Adam Rapp, a...
    Virginia gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe (D) on Tuesday defended sexually explicit material being used in schools without notice, saying he didn’t believe parents should determine standards. McAuliffe, who previously served as Virginia’s governor from 2014-18, made the remark during a debate with opponent Glenn Youngkin (R). Recalling that he vetoed legislation during his term that would have alerted parents to sexually explicit content in schools and provided them with options for objecting to it, McAuliffe said, “I’m not going to let parents come into schools and actually take books out and make their own decision. So, yeah, I stopped the bill — I don’t think parents should be telling schools what they should teach.” McAuliffe was misrepresenting the bill in reply to Youngkin, who said schools in the state had been “refusing to engage with parents.” He also cited a controversy in northern Virginia’s Fairfax County, where two books — Lawn Boy and Gender Queer — were removed from school shelves this week after parental complaints that they featured “homoerotic content.” The American Library Association endorsed the books for holding “special...

    Apple unveiled plans Thursday for software intended to detect and flag sexually explicit images of children in a move critics say threatens user privacy. The software, to be added to iOS and iPadOS in an update later this year, will perform “on-device” scans of users’ images that are uploaded to iCloud, and match them against a database of sexually explicit content of children, the company announced Thursday. If enough images match content in the database, Apple will manually review them and report the user to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC), according to the announcement. The company will also add new tools to its Messages app that alert children and their parents if they receive or send sexually explicit images, using on-device scans that detect sexual content in message attachments. Apple will blur the sexually explicit photo, and said the child would be provided with “helpful resources” and “reassured.” Some cybersecurity experts and privacy advocates worry the software creates an opportunity for abuse and threatens user privacy. “All it would take to widen the narrow backdoor that Apple...

    A lesbian couple have condemned Facebook after a promotional advert showing their foreheads gently touching was rejected for being 'sexually explicit adult content' - while an image showing a heterosexual couple in the same pose was allowed. Musical duo Sera Golding-Young, 36, and her wife Frankie, 32, had posted a video to announce the release of a new album - and made a sponsored advertisement in a bid to reach fans. But the post was said to have violated Facebook's Community Standards rules under its 'Objectionable Content' clause, which targets illicit images of nudity or sexual activity. The couple claim they uploaded the same video and copy but used a picture of a heterosexual couple in the same romantic pose - and it passed the social media giant's censors. Mrs Golding-Young, from Guildford, Surrey said: 'I understand that Facebook can mistakenly reject things sometimes, but when I saw the explanation, I couldn't believe my eyes.  Mrs Golding-Young, from Guildford, Surrey said: 'It's a romantic image of us with our foreheads touching, and we use this for all our profile photos...
