We’re proud to stand with our friends @TFN this afternoon at the State Capitol as they release a report calling for an overhaul of the state’s abstinence-only sex education. #SexEdForAllpic.twitter.com/rebG…
Deeds Not Words is proud to join @TFN's coalition to #TeachTheTruth about sex ed. It's time for Texas to:
➕ adopt a medically accurate sex ed curriculum.
🌈 ensure sex ed is LGTBQ+ inclusive.
📝 provide information on birth control.

What is worse is that we, like many thousands of students, had nothing else to correct the record. My classmates and I had no formal sex education course. So this incident ... is one of the few lone discussions on anything approaching human sexuality that my peers will remember.
“This statement is not only incredibly harmful and shocking, it also has zero basis in fact. But a class of 17- and 18-year-olds who didn’t know otherwise accepted this statement as true, even though I objected.” #TeachTheTruth#SexEducation
