An Oct. 13 screen shot of the Ryan Middle School website show links to highly explicit LGBTQ websites that are tailored students.

Ryan Middle School in Fairbanks is using public resources to encourage youth to question and explore their sexual orientation, gender identity and how to engage in various sexual acts, while directing kids with sexual questions to speak confidentially to school counselors.

The school’s website provides links for students to visit five specific LGBTQ activist websites that advocate for same-sex locker rooms and bathrooms, as well as allowing biological boys to compete on all female teams. One website helps students discover whether they are gay, lesbian or bisexual, while providing explicit details on how to have anal and oral sex. It also includes “first time sex stories” and tells students how to prevent pregnancy through pulling out, abortion and the morning after pill, among other options.

In addition to providing direct links to highly explicit LGBTQ content, the school website also encourages students to talk about sexual matters with school counselors when questions arise.

“Don’t hesitate to talk to the counselors about sexual orientation concerns, questions, or needed support,” the school website states. It adds that any services provided by school counselors is confidential, so long as students don’t reveal “an intent to harm yourself or others.”

“Please feel free to approach the counselors about any concerns you may have, but understand that everything will remain confidential unless it places yourself or others at risk for harm,” the school website states.

Given the school is clearly using its official website and paid counselors to promote LGBTQ sexuality, state law may have something to say about the matter.

According to Alaska State Statute parents must be notified “not less than two weeks before any activity, class, or program that includes content involving human reproduction or sexual matters is provided to a child.”

Parents have the right to “review the content of an activity, class, performance standard, or program” and withdraw the child if they see fit, the law states.

    They have no business doing any such thing. Shame on the school board of Fairbanks.

      Shame on the school board in Fairbanks.
      Well stated!
      Don’t forget the assistant superintendent Luke Meinert who is suppose to oversee the middle schools.

  • Friend of Humanity says:

    Is this one of the reasons that NEA is pushing back against a constitutional convention? I hope that people across the state speak up against this happening in Fairbanks. If it happens there, where else is it happening? Are the villages going to be teaching this crap? It is terrifying to think that in villages where there are problems with rape and incest that young adults may now be getting pornography to learn to do unspeakable things. This is not okay.

  • Andy says:

    Parents still allow their children to attend knowing this? This is perversion and borders on grooming under a thin veil of “education”

  • Clark says:

    You may need to go back to school so someone can explain the difference between a school teaching something as part of its curriculum and a teacher answering a question about an lgbt issue. Hate to break it to you, but 99% of our time being gay is spent NOT having sex. You guys need to stop obsessing about gay sex. Straight people do everything gay people do too.
    Lgbt adolescents are at higher risk of suicide, substance abuse and stds. Its entirely because of familial abuse/denial, and religious misinformation. They need affirming support and comprehensive information to protect themselves.

    • kirk says:

      No the “gay” community needs to stop grooming children period. This is not normal and we are seeing an enormous uptick in “gender” confusion brought on by this exact tBS that the activists are promoting. Sorry grooming is the word. Any sane person with children knows this.

      Did you know that back in the 70’s the Man/Boy Love Association was marching along in the gay pride parade? Pedophilia is accepted in the gay community even if they don’t like to admit it.

  • DavidH says:

    Has the school changed its website? When I follow the links given above to the school’s page, none of the links shown in the screenshot are there. All its says is “LGBT SUPPORT Here at Ryan Middle School we want to ensure all students are in a safe environment regardless of their sexual orientation.”

  • CD says:

    The schools in Fairbanks have been trying to make the homosexual lifestyle the norm for a long time. Just look through a yearbook. 10 years ago, I did and was shocked at the push of making sexual perversion the norm.

  • Jon and Ruth Ewig says:

    People who talk about sexual orientation are confused. There are only two genders. God created them. Gender Ideology is meant to confuse all people. Gender dysphoria is a mental illness that can be cured through counseling. The government will pay for it.
    Those who have this mental illness and are in denial will continue to try and convert the rest of us and our children and grandchildren just as in Sodom and Gomorrha. When I was young sodomy was against the law for a good reason. Who is the author of confusion? Who brought order out of chaos? If the schools are breaking the statutes of this state then the parents involved need to get together and bring a class action lawsuit against whoever is breaking the law.

    • Clark says:

      The shocking inaccuracy of your post is not something you should be proud of.

      Physically, based on genitalia, the absolute minimum number of sexes is three. On the genetic level, based on chromosomes there are at least 5 distinct sexes. Thats not considering brain chemistry which is what determines peoples gender. Learn some science and drop the fake religion. The bible never says there are only 2 sexes. The bible only says he created a man and a woman. he literally took a piece of a man and turned it into a woman. That is divine proof that men and women can be changed to the opposite sex. The bible doesnt talk about gender identity at all.

  • Wayne says:

    I went to this school in the mid 80’s. Pleasant memories. Its a shame it has evolved this way. As if last year when i looked into this, only 11 states in America have a parental rights bill. Alaska is not one of them. Parents we need to call our governors office and get organized. We need Parental Rights. As of now the school supersedes parents rights when our children are on school grounds.

  • Richard Eide says:

    Randy Smith School posts flyers on walls throughout the school inviting curious kids to their meetings. Bob Lockwood and Principal Dershin push this. Kids form new, harmful friendships with parent’s being unaware. Anybody seeing irreparible harm, lawsuits and overhaul for the Fairbanks North Star Borough School District?
