#SexEdFail Is Trending On Twitter And We're Already Cringing

By Mark LoProto

Sexual education is a pretty important part of youth education, which is why people are kind of losing their minds over information that the new government of Ontario, Canada, is looking to disseminate to students. 

In an odd ruling, the government completely discarded an updated sex ed curriculum that replaced a 20-year-old curriculum from 1998. As noted by the Buzzfeed article reporting on the range of reactions, the old curriculum “predates social media and legal same-sex marriage.” 

The newer curriculum dealt with concerns like body image, gender identity and cyber-bullying—three topics much on people's minds these days. Even more importantly, the new curriculum also provided lessons on consent. Therefore, the Canadian ruling reverting to the old curriculum takes students back in time.
