With school board elections now behind them, the left-leaning majority of the Fairbanks North Star School Board heard a request from the school district to approve highly explicit sex education videos and graphic materials for grades 6-12.

The Oct. 19 school board heard from Chane Beam, the district’s executive director of teaching and learning. Most board members expressed serious reservations about the sex-ed materials, and ultimately asked the district to withdraw its request and reevaluate whether the suggested videos and lessons were even fit for the board’s consideration and debate.

Requested by teachers, the materials tell students, as young as age 12, how to have sex or stimulate their partner, and gives them advice on how to select appropriate contraceptives, including the Morning After Pill, which can cause early abortions.

One video emphasizes that students have the right to hormonal, surgical and manual contraception without ever having to inform their parents. Another highlights the benefits of hidden contraceptives that maximize a teenager’s ability to conceal its use.

The proposed middle school materials present sex as something most people engage in at some point, and instructs teachers to tell children about “vaginal, anal and manual (using hands) intercourse, or oral-genital stimulation, with a partner.”

Other materials introduce students to a host of contraceptives, including Plan B which can kill a newly conceived baby at the earliest stages of development.

One video tells Minors they can consent to sexual health and birth control without parental approval.

Students play bingo games to make the lessons fun, and take quizzes to see if they can faithfully restate the lesson’s main points. They are also asked to rank favorite contraceptive methods while learning that “abstinence means different things to different people,” and that it’s okay if some students want to engage in certain sexual activities while abstaining from others.

One lesson instructs middle schoolers how to properly ask someone to have sex with them. At no point is sex presented within a traditional moral framework with an emphasis on abstinence. Rather, the underlying philosophy is that sex is a biological process that just needs to be done safely and with full consent of both partners. Likewise, the curriculum uses a gender-neutral format which is easily applicable with heterosexual or homosexual sex.

A video for middle schoolers and high schoolers features OBGYN Danielle Jones stating that “50% of people have a vagina.” Jones’ video spotlights a young teen showing off her stained underwear and talking about the fact that vaginal discharge is normal. At one point Jones talks about what can happen when inserting a “toy or penis” into the vagina.

Alaska law requires that the material first be approved by the school board.

Other videos by Jones, which are not part of the Fairbanks curriculum, blast Texas’ new pro-life law banning abortion once a heartbeat is detected. Other videos celebrate transgenderism and the Black Lives Matter movement.

A proposed video for high schoolers talks about the many benefits of contraceptive pills, IUDs, vaginal rings and other hormonal and surgical contraceptives for adolescents. Many of these options can lead to low estrogen levels, thrombosis, decreased bone density, heavy bleeding and cramping. Despite these side effect, the video points out: “Minors can consent to healthcare related to sexual health and birth control. They do not need parental approval.”

A separate video for high schoolers attempts to convince teens that the Plan B (or Morning After Pill) does not cause abortions. The speaker repeatedly emphasizes that this drug “does not cause an abortion.”

According to the product label attached to Plan B, it can, in fact serve as an abortifacient by preventing “attachment of a fertilized egg to the uterus (womb).” Since a “fertilized egg” is in fact the earliest stage of human life, Plan B can kill this life by blocking access to the womb, which is necessary for nutrition and continued development.

In order for these materials to be taught in Fairbanks schools, Alaska law requires the material first be approved by the school board.

    Commie Perverts grooming children for them to abuse.

    • Chris says: (Part 1)
      ^^ There are 2 sides to a story ^^
      This article is clickbait and misleading! Dr. Danielle Jones is a Board Certified Doctor and the sweetest woman ever! There is a reason she has over a million subscribers on YouTube.

    • Crystal says:

      Look in the mirror pal, your projection is showing.

    • Luna says:

      This is inaccurate, misleading and in all honesty, rude. Dr. Danielle Jones has explained that “plan b” is not abortion, and if you take it while pregnant, it will do nothing. You should actually watch some of her YouTube videos.

      It was also pointed out by dr Danielle Jones that women are also addressed as doctor. In this article she was not.

    • Sara says:

      It’s harder for groomers to prey on kids who know the correct anatomical names for body parts and have been educated on consent and how to stay safe. Keeping kids ignorant does not keep them safe.

  • Buford Pusser says:

    You get what you accept Fairbanks

  • G Aleutian says:

    This is abusive to youngsters. These people are crazy.

  • Andy says:

    Unbelievable. We’re about to see what Fairbanks folks are made of.

  • Carrie+Harris says:

    Our test scores are the lowest in the nation. Teaching sex should be a low priority. Parents should remember that the national School board association wants them deemed to be terrorist, because a father whose daughter was raped by a transgender male and a girl’s bathroom spoke out at a school board meeting. That kid was transferred to another school and did it again. Schools don’t need to be teaching sex unless they’re teaching girls and boys how to defend themselves against rapist.

    • Sara says:

      OK, so low test scores mean kids should remain ignorant about how to prevent pregnancy and how to have healthy relationships, thereby ensuring that they will be held back even more by having multiple kids at a very young age and raise another generation of kids who will struggle and start the cycle all over again? Why not educate the kids about their own bodies and about consent (hello, stop some kids from growing up to be rapists) and give them some sort of chance to focus on those test scores?

  • Egg Nog Rising says:

    I am so glad I am not a classroom teacher. I could not present this curriculum without getting ill.

  • James says:

    Public schools need to be abolished.

  • Amanda Christensen says:

    So… this article dated Tuesday is informing us about a meeting the same day!? Not helpful. I an VERY opposed.

  • cleverclover says:

    be a parent, protect your child(ren) and pull your kids out of these indoctrination camps. it isn’t going to get any better. the schools will continue to push all the left leaning, LGBTQ+, commie, satanistic teachings they can.

  • Steve+Peterson says:

    This started with Dewey and his public education agenda, has progressed with teachers’ unions and their respective agendas, was furthered by Jimmie Carter and his creation of the DOE, and is now culminating with what we have today. Parents, lulled by the promise of the schools providing full responsibility for transporting, feeding, socializing and even clothing their children have allowed this to happen. For convenience sake they refused to pay attention, and now it is too late. If you still have your children in public school, I have news for you: it will not get better! Get your kids out of public schools! There are tons of resources out there to home-school and various private schools which will support the culture of your home. Please, before your children are totally taken from you.

  • Renee says:

    This is child abuse, all those involved should be prosecuted!

  • DoneWithIt says:

    Johnny and Sally won’t have even remedial math and English skills – but they will at least know how to put a banana on a condom and what gay anal sex is.

  • JH says:

    IS BEING WOKE A “Mental illness is at its core a disconnection from reality?” 99% OF PEOPLE THINK SO!!

    • Brielle Kramer says:

      And we all warn our children to be careful in the world because the majority of people are crazy.

  • Proud Alaskan says:

    Take your kids out of these woke schools before it’s to late.
    And your kids start being disrespectful you.

  • Janine Baird says:

    First off as a parent who is just hearing about this the same day as the meeting greatly bothers me and I feel it was planned that way so we didn’t have time to respond. This is totally wrong at every level and taking the morality out of how I am teaching my children. I urge Fairbanks parents to rise up and take a stand. Leaving your child in this type of environment is simply insane. If we don’t have a plan to train up our children then somebody else will and the child you once had you will no longer have.

  • A B says:

    Fairbanks, we need prayers, lots of prayers! Satan is walking on our land. Sodomites and their lord are trying to convert our future into hell. We have to be strong against these school teachers, university professors and other garbage with low IQ. This is all part of the message our Greatest Lord Jesus Christ is trying to send us. Stay alert! His coming is close. Armageddon is right behind your door. Are you ready? Will you fight for your Lord and your beliefs? I hope you will.
    Oh dear Lord, please send us your blessings and show all the stupid and blind your greatest power! Please show all of those who call themself “intellectuals” the real power of Yours! Amen!

      Mama Doctor Jones (The creator of the YouTube channel this article is referring to) is an OBGYN. She has spent decades practicing in her field of study. What has this author done? Nothing of the sort? He’s not a doctor, and is feeding your right-wing anger. She tells it like it is, none of which is explicit. She has this channel to educate women about their bodies and clear up common misconceptions about birth control, pregnancy, pap smears and what to expect during a visit to an OBGYN. The author did not do his due diligence and is completely ignorant about her content.
      If women knowing about how their bodies work offends you, then seriously, crawl back into the hole from where you crawled out of and stay off the internet since you can’t tell the difference between facts and inflammatory statements meant to rile up people like you.

  • Ruth Ewig says:

    In Fairbanks concerns were brought by the curriculum committee which contains three conservatives out of 17, I think. They seemed concerned. She presented a better alternative: A pamphlet given to the girls titled Sense and Sensuality by Center for Conservative Women. Fairbanks cannot seem to elect conservatives on the school board as the town is “owned” by hosptital monopoly, the labor and teacher unions and university where this perversion spreads from. Not enough Christians are willing to push back and vote, but instead are removing their kids. Smear campaigns are successful with the media being leftist and ads are cheap. The leftists do not reveal their real agenda like “managing the police” while running. Deception is a value of the left. , We had a line up of Conservatives and either Dominion was the problem that we could not get them elected, or the leftists like “Journalist” Dermot Cole are better at digging up dirt or making it up. We suspect Dominion is a problem but the Lt. Governor needs to believe that it is a problem.

  • David says:

    My sincere advice
    1 Take a breath
    2 Evaluate what is more important, your standard of living or your child, then act on that
    3 coordinate with those in your “circle “ maybe start your own very small school etc
    4 pray
    5 take another breath clear your head, you have more control than you think

  • Crys says:

    When 60-70% of Alaskan kids are failing Math and Reading this is not a priority!

  • S A says:

    The “woke” lunatic fringe is at it again. The school board needs to shut down this lunacy at once and deal appropriately with anyone suggesting the use of such materials.

  • Brielle Brown says:

    Hey this article is incredibly misleading. You should be ashamed.YOU ARE VERY FACTUALLY INCORRECT AND STRAIGHT UP LYING. I have no respect for your publication

  • Xander says:

    Completely inaccurate, out to attack an honest woman only giving sex education to people that obviously need more than you can provide. You should be ashamed of yourselves and actually learn about the things you’re talking about

  • Alice says:

    This is incredibly wrong, misleading and just disgusting. You have done no research on Doctor Jones at all from what i can see. To the people who immediately thought this was true is really sad and funny at the same time. Especially if your adults.

  • François-Xavier Racine says:

    ”OH NO!…
    An actual healthcare provider talking about verifiable healthcare information that can impact their patients, and empower them to know more about their bodies… THE HUMANITY!”
    Seriously, I am not even a woman and can point to the numerous errors about sex health and medicine in this article.
    And why complain about the contraceptives talk? You actually want teens to get kids and STDs?
    They will have sex, no matter what. Do you want them to do it responsibly, or IRresponsibly? When a lot of studies show that where comprehensive sex ed is there, there are lower rates of teen STDs, less unwanted pregnancies, and they even usually start to have sex later, with fewer partners?

  • lana del rey says:

    This article did not slay.

  • Morgen says:

    This dude needs to get his facts straight. It is DR. JONES and if you watch her video, you can see this guy is taking her quotes out of context. Not to mention he doesn’t include the fact that she is not the only people who’s videos he is referring to and who’s videos he is talking about at what times. You can confirm the info on her video here
    Please make informed choices before taking anything this guy says as fact. He doesn’t even understand how plan b works and is NOT a board certified obgyn like dr. Jones is. He likely didn’t even get a certified doctor to review this before submitting it.

  • Hannah says:

    This article is absolutely ridiculous, a board certified DOCTOR who specializes in female reproductive health knows more about sex ed than any teacher would. Choosing to educate your children in the most PG way is not going to help, in fact it’s detrimental. They’re still going to go out and do what they want, you should want them to at least know what they’re doing and how to be safe doing it. I remember girls in middle school not understand what sex even was but still participating in it. Not properly educating them isn’t going to stop them.
    The article screams ignorance.

  • Jessica says:

    I hope out of this guy’s 8 kids that none of them are girls. The Doctor mentioned in this article has done her research whereas obviously he has not. But if he has a daughter that is around the age of 12, she will be getting all of this “explicit sex talk” from her actual gynecologist should she have any questions. This is 21st Century America, not a 17th century Witch Hunt. Children need to be educated with scientific fact, and Dr. Jones is someone I would trust WAY more than the majority of the close-minded, sexist commenters in this article

  • Crystal says:

    Tell me you didn’t do your research without telling us you didn’t do your research and also tell me that you’re a right-wing sexist stuck in the 1950s, without telling us you are a right-wing sexist from the 1950s. This author outed himself.

    She’s an OBGYN. This author chose the parts HE wanted to, and ran with it. YouTube wouldn’t even allow explicit content on their platform. Everything on her channel is informative and awesome. The author isn’t even a doctor or even for women’s rights. Sit down. Seriously. Sit down. This whole article is misinformation and fake news. Take some time to self-reflect.

  • Facts are cool says:

    Fun FACT: Using “in fact” more often does not, IN FACT, make your article factually correct.

  • Isabel says:

    This article is filled with so many factual errors and misleading information. Shame on you!

  • Vicki says:

    Joel Davidson- your reporting is poor and factually inaccurate. Shame on you.

  • Carolina Figueira says:

    Bunch of lies, have you actually watched Dr. Jones videos? I have been following her for a year now, I wished I had her videos to watch when I was a teen.

  • Rob says:

    I was amazed to learn this is an actual, published, unironic article. Where is the journalistic integrity? Is basic research no longer a reasonable standard? Aside from being overtly inflammatory and partisan (which should be the arena of opinion and editorial pieces, not science or education), it contains unclear attribution of sources (who said what again?) and actual factual inaccuracies presented as, well, fact (which is not actually how facts work). If the author and/or persons responsible for its publication are going to criticize educational content and expert educators, they might consider the benefits of education in a few other fields as well.

  • Luk says:

    This article is incredibly misleading and inaccurate. Joel Davidson should be really ashamed. This is the worst kind of journalism.

  • This is horrific says:

    I can not believe you published this horrific article full of inaccuracies and LIES. You should not have your job.

    • Amanda Marcinak says:

      Proof you don’t need to be educated on the topic you’re writing on to write an article. Proof you don’t need to do any kind of research to write on the topic of the article. Proof you don’t even need any more information than your misguided, ill-informed biases to write on the topic of the article. There are so many inaccuracies in this that are presented as fact that it’s actually scary. Just even the information on the morning-after pill, or Plan B. The main ingredient is a progesterin, and it doesn’t abort an already fertilized, implanted egg. If you are ALREADY PREGNANT, you will STILL BE PREGNANT. The name literally means “pro-gestation”… meaning it’s to the benefit of the gestation (pregnancy). And that piece of information took 5 minutes to correctly research, and didn’t come from I can even provide a citation to the information. The magic of doing research.
