'There are 73 genders': High school suspends sex education after drag queen's shocking lesson to 11-year-old students
PEEL, ISLE OF MAN: A high school lifted its sex education after a drag queen guest allegedly told students there are 73 genders and forced a student who insisted there are "only two" to exit the classroom. The Queen Elizabeth II High School in Peel, Isle of Man, has undergone an independent evaluation after Year 7 students reported feeling "traumatized" after learning about sex change procedures and sexual acts.
Parents voiced their worries about the lesson, which prompted a review of the school's personal, social, health, and economic (PSHE) curriculum by the island's government. According to The Telegraph, the parents are concerned about the "graphic, disproportionate, indecent presentation" of sexual actions and gender identities being taught to their youngsters. It features a drag queen teaching the children, some of whom were as young as 11, that there are 73 genders.

'Children are just too traumatized'
When a student said, "there's only two," the drag queen forced the child to exit the classroom. The children were also educated about oral and anal sex, while another group was taught about sex change procedures and how skin grafts can be used on an artificial penis. An instructor allegedly had to teach Year 7 and 8 students how to masturbate. Eliza Cox, vice chair of the Marown Commissioners, told Energy FM Isle of Man, "A lot of children are just too traumatized to even talk to their parents. As a parent, you don’t know what children are being taught."
'Why was this guest speaker permitted?'
As per reports, parents have now started a petition to the school's chief teacher asking for an "immediate investigation" into the lessons. It reads, "We consider the attendance of a "drag queen" in class and alienating students clearly confused about the information discussed during this session wholly inappropriate. How, who and why was this guest speaker permitted to discuss gender issues to an inappropriate child audience by an inexperienced and untrained adult?"
'Independent review into the situation began'
As per the Isle of Man government, an independent review has been started to better comprehend what happened. It follows the island's September rollout of a revised sex education curriculum. The school's head teacher Charlotte Clarke said, "Having viewed a video which is currently circulating on social media relating to the school’s RSE curriculum and its delivery, we are concerned that there could be a number of inaccuracies with the information being shared." "Given the concerns being raised, and in order to be open and transparent, we requested an independent review into the situation. As such I am happy to take part in the independent review which is being deployed by the Department of Education, Sport and Culture and would encourage our community to avoid speculation at this time," the teacher added.
