MADISON — A Burlington High School sex education book that includes a chapter on “Kinks, Fantasies, and Fetishes” went MIA and has now been removed from the school’s library, according to a school board member.
“Sex: A Book for Teens: An Uncensored Guide to Your Body, Sex, and Safety,” includes tips and tricks for female masturbation, including sex toys, male masturbation, lesbian vaginal sex and an extensive guide on anal sex.
“As an adult, if you need to know something, it’s in this book,” a concerned parent wrote. The problem is, the book is written for kids ages 15-18.
“For a child, it is completely inappropriate. It is exposing a child to harmful material,” the parent wrote, demanding the book be removed from the library and that a full audit be conducted of the library.
Burlington School Board member Taylor Wishau said the book was added to the school’s library in 2010 and apparently had never been checked out. It was, however, listed as “missing” in the system and not replaced.
As of last week, the book had been removed from the school district’s library catalog, Wishau said.
Burlington Area School District administrators did not return several requests for comments.
Parents across Wisconsin are fighting back against such explicit content offered to their children in schools.
A bill in the Legislature would solidify the right of parents to remove their children from schools or classes that “normalize behaviors” they find offensive. That includes lessons on sexual orientation, transgender topics and questionably pornographic sexual education courses.
Opponents of the bill, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, believe children who are gay or transgender would be traumatized if their parents prevent them from attending the classes.
Rep. Donna Rozar (R-Marshfield), the bill’s author, said parents — not schools — should have the right to decide what their children are learning.
“I believe that there are very subtle things that occur in public and charter schools that tend to normalize behaviors that are in conflict with some students’ families’ belief systems,” she said.
A spokeswoman for Gov. Tony Evers told the publication the liberal won’t sign the bill.
Leftists quickly attacked the bill, co-authored by Rep. Cabral-Guevara (R-Appleton).
“To Rep. Cabral-Guevara and all those in support, if you want to truly help take care of our children, keep your harmful mandates out of our state and stay in your lane. This bill is an invasion of our student’s privacy & caters to intolerance & disrespect,” tweeted Madison radical Rep. Francesca Hong.
Scott Kelly, aide to state Sen. Van Wanggaard (R-Racine) fired back, “Apparently, she thinks that allowing parents to opt their children out of ‘gender identity and sexual orientation programming’ (her words) is a ‘harmful mandate’ (her words).”

I don’t think she knows: what “opt out”, “programming” “harmful” or “ mandate” means. https://t.co/iVXR7P39BL
