LEXINGTON PARK, Md. (ChurchMilitant.com) - A Planned Parenthood-certified sex educator will present a "teens only" talk where they can ask anything in an "LGBTQIA+ inclusive sex-ed" seminar, and the Republican County Commission is paying for the police presence to ensure parents do not enter.
Bianca Palmisano will present "Straight Talk Sex Ed for Teens" to teenagers Jan. 19 at Lexington Park Library in St. Mary's County, Maryland.
Palmisano is the founder of Intimate Health Consulting and has this professional description online:
Bianca Palmisano (she/they) is a sex educator, medical consultant, and the owner ... [who] specializes in training health care providers around issues of sexual health, as well as LGBT, sex worker, and sexual assault survivor competency. In Fall 2018, they [sic] are beginning a Masters of Nursing program at Johns Hopkins School of Nursing in Baltimore.
"The County Commission, GOP Republicans, have been completely aware of the nefarious activities occurring at the library," Georgia Kijesky, president and founder of Personhood Maryland, told Church Militant.
"In 2017, the county commissioners were aware the library had intended to host Bianca Palmisano," said Kijesky.
"In 2019, I let the County Commission know of a library official who wrote an article outlining tips and tricks for librarians to sneak in LGBTQ agenda," she added.
Kijesky also explained there have been two arrests, both involving protestors, in the last two years owing to police surrounding the building during the sexualization of children. The County Commission allotted taxpayer funds for police presence during these LGBTQ events at the library "to ensure that no parent, no adult enters the room." She emphasized:
They claim that it's for the safety of children but that's insane. If they were really concerned about child safety like they are about tobacco use on library property, they would ban the sexualization of children as well as banning tobacco. They are concerned about children breathing the air and polluting their lungs with tobacco smoke, but they have no concern about perverts polluting the minds of children.
She also told Church Militant Catholic leaders in the area have done little to fight this corruption.
In 2017, according to her, one Catholic who works with youth even placed freedom of speech above the safety of children in defense of the presentations.
"While we disagree with the message on sex they plan to present, we do recognize their right to use the library's public meeting room space and their right to free speech," said Rich Olon, minister of religious education and youth ministry at St. John Francis Regis Church.
Teens have questions about sexual health, whether it's birth control, lubricants, STI testing, LGBTQ relationships, or something else completely. This will be an informal workshop where your teen can ask ANY sexual health question you want and get an honest answer.
Parental consent will be required for the teens to attend. The workshop format is "Teens Only," by registering your child you are agreeing to this format. Parents are welcome to wait in the general Library areas, or in the other room where we will be putting on a program about the importance of science-based, LGBTQIA+ inclusive sex-ed.
Anyone wishing to speak out about these events can contact the commissioners.
