A sex education YouTube channel has garnered considerable backlash and controversy from conservative and religious sects for the "shocking" content they create on their channel.

Called 'Sex -Ed School', the channel is hosted by Nadine Thornhill and Eva Bloom, experts in the field. The series covers topics such as gender, puberty, consent, orientation and the like. Critics believe that the channel is "sexualizing children through sex education" and is "whacking them so hard in the head with a mental stick they can barely speak." 

The videos are produced by a Canadian group, which aims to explore "the birds and the bees with ease in today’s digital landscape". The series is aimed for the age group of 9-12 and features two of their expert hosts, "leading a respectful and authentic dialogue on sexual health, and guiding participants through fun and thought-provoking activities about specific topics." The series addresses transgender transitioning, speaks of masturbation and educates on terms such as "nonbinary". 

One particular episode seems to have sparked outrage is the one featured on the Shaftesbury Kids' YouTube channel where a transman named Kaleb is brought in as a guest to answer any questions the kids may have had about trans people. In the episode titled 'Gender,' the experts say, "gender is how you feel on the inside about whether you're a boy or a girl, a man or a woman, if you're non-binary, feel like neither or both."

Kaleb shares that he started his personal journey with hormone therapy and having a double mastectomy and had scars from it. "It changed my voice and my body a little bit,” Kaleb explained about the hormone therapy, “I basically went through a second puberty when I was in my 20’s. I have to take [the hormone injection] every week."

A religious news publication, Faith Wire, calling the channel "shocking" warned parents against such "education".
