As part of a new county youth survey directed at the young children of Fairfax County, Virginia, children as young as 12 will be asked questions concerning whether or not they have ever had sex, how old they were when it took place, and with how many people they have had sexual intercourse with.
The 2021 Fairfax County Youth Survey, which is a collaboration between Fairfax County Public Schools and the Fairfax County Government, as reported by WJLA, will be aimed at children in 8th, 10th, and 12th grade. The platform stated that the survey was entirely anonymous and not mandatory.
Possible sample questions from the survey include:
Some people describe themselves as transgender when their sex at birth does not match the way they think or feel about their gender. Are you transgender?
Which of the following best describes you: Heterosexual (straight), Gay or Lesbian, Bisexual, Not Sure.
Have you ever had sexual intercourse?
How old were you when you had sexual intercourse the first time?
During your life, with how many people have you had sexual intercourse?
During the last three months, with how many people have you had sexual intercourse?
The last time you had sexual intercourse, did you or your partner use a condom?
Have you ever had oral sex?
The Daily Wire reported, back at the end of September, that a few books had been banned from Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) in the wake of a parent reading a series of graphic passages from them during her time at a school board meeting. The Wire reported:
The two books — “Gender Queer” by Maia Kobabe and “Lawn Boy” by Jonathan Evison — were suspended “effective immediately” this week after parent Stacy Langton revealed the graphic sexual nature of the book. FCPS released a statement saying it would review the content of the novels:
Circulation of Lawn Boy by Jonathan Evison and Gender Queer by Maia Kobabe will be suspended with immediate effect. FCPS is in the process of convening two committees made up of staff, students and parents led by our Library Services Coordinator to assess the suitability of both texts for inclusion in our school libraries. The recommendation of the committees will be put forward to the Assistant Superintendent of Instructional Services who will make a final decision as to whether FCPS continues to stock these books.
Langton went on to point out that the books contain gross descriptions of pedophilia. One excerpt from “Lawn Boy” reads:
“What if I told you I touched another guy’s d***?” I said.
“Pff.” Nick waved me off and turned his attention back to his beer.
“What if I told you I sucked it?”
“Will you please just shut up already?”
“I’m dead serious, Nick.”
“Well, I’d say you were a f**.”
“I was ten years old, but it’s true. I put Doug Goble’s d*** in my mouth.”
“The real-estate guy?”
Nick looked around frantically. “What the f*** are you talking about, Michael?”
“I was in fourth grade. It was no big deal.”
Cringing, Nick held his hands out in front of him in a yield gesture. “Stop.”
“He sucked mine, too.”
“Stop! Why are you telling me this?”
“And you know what?” I said. “It wasn’t terrible.”
