 Quebec Makes Sex Ed Mandatory at Age 5, Will Teach About Same-Sex Couples in Kindergarten

The Canadian province of Quebec has become the latest to make sex education mandatory for children in all stages of school, starting in kindergarten.

As CBC News reported on Saturday, starting in September 2018 children as young as 5 "will get a brief explanation of the steps involved in making a baby."

"They will be told that an egg and sperm unite to form a zygote that will grow into an embryo and then a fetus, and they will learn about the different types of families, including those involving same-sex couples," the article added.

"They will also be given the proper terms for male and female body parts, including the vulva, penis, scrotum and testicles."

Lisa Trimble, a McGill lecturer specializing in sexual education, said that learning such terms at a young age can protect children from sexual exploitation.

"If we are all using the same language and we are removing some of the charge around it by calling it the name that it is supposed to be called, then children are able to articulate if they are having problems," Trimble said.

British Columbia, Alberta, and Ontario have all implemented or are preparing to introduce the curriculum that is to be made mandatory at all of Quebec's 3,114 schools in the fall.

Canadian laws concerning children have been scrutinized by conservatives on a number of occasions this past year.

In June, for example, Ontario passed legislation that allows the government to seize children from families that refuse to accept their child's chosen "gender identity" or "gender expression."
