It’s no secret that the LGBTQ community is more open about their sexuality than most, but is there a line that shouldn’t be crossed? A school district in Florida recently cut ties with a local LGBTQ youth center after it was revealed that the center was promoting a sexually explicit card game featuring pictures of penises and scrotums to children as young as 13.
The Post Millennial reported on the story after it was covered by The Florida Standard, revealing that the Jacksonville Area Sexual Minority Youth Network (JASMYN) had twice posted photographs of the adult card game on the group’s Instagram page, in one now-deleted post inviting youth age 13-24 to come and enjoy the fun.
As a conservative, this makes me absolutely sick to my stomach. How can we expect our children to grow up into well-adjusted adults when they’re being exposed to this kind of filth at such a young age?
How Can We Protect Our Children?
It’s important that we as parents do everything in our power to protect our children from this kind of explicit content. We need to be aware of what our kids are exposed to both online and offline. In this case, it’s clear that JASMYN went too far by posting these photos and inviting youth to come and play the game.
So what can we do to make sure our kids are safe? For starters, we can talk to them about what is appropriate and what isn’t. We can also monitor their internet usage and teach them how to be proactive in ensuring their own safety online. Additionally, we can support organizations and groups that share our values like Moms for Liberty, and oppose those who don’t.
As parents and taxpayers, it’s our responsibility to keep our kids safe both physically and emotionally. That’s why I’m calling on all parents to take a stand against groups like JASMYN who promote explicit content to minors. Our children deserve better than this. They deserve a bright future free from sex, violence, and all other forms of debauchery. Join me in speaking out against organizations like JASMYN so that we can create a better world for our kids.
