South Africa – Smart Choices: A value-Based CSE-Alternative

In March 2020, a group of educationalists, motivated by the nationwide controversy and sparked by revelations of the harmful ideology entrenched in “Comprehensive Sexuality Education” (CSE), met to initiate and develop a values-based sexuality education curriculum that adopts a sexual health, wellness, and character-building approach. CSE is currently being imposed on South Africa’s public schooling system by the Department of Basic Education – despite overwhelming public opposition. Most parents and educators are deeply concerned by the age-inappropriate content and sexually explicit illustrations evident throughout the program. Sharon Slater, President of Family Watch International and the UN Family Rights Caucus were deeply disturbed to discover that the program is a Trojan Horse for abortion and LGBTQI propaganda aimed at indoctrinating impressionable young children. “Smart Choices” – the new values-based sexuality education curriculum – provides a safe and credible alternative to the harmful ideology of CSE. Smart Choices is based on traditional and common-sense values shared by most of South Africans.

Image-based abuse occurs when intimate, nude or sexual images are distributed without the consent of those pictured. This includes real, altered (e.g. Photoshopped) and drawn pictures and videos. Criminologist Asher Flynn’s surveys of people across Australia, New Zealand, and the UK suggested one in three people had been the victim of this type of abuse. Read more
