One sex ed pusher really was after your kids.

If you have ever wondered about the motivations of those who push perverse variations of sex education on young children . . . well, it’s not paranoia if they really are out to get your kids.

The former Ontario deputy education minister who oversaw the development of a controversial sex-ed program before facing child sex charges will plead guilty to a number of those charges.

Benjamin Levin, born 1952, was arrested in 2013 in the wake of an international child porn sting that led to his North York doorstep. He was not only accused of making and distributing child pornography, but also of arranging for a sexual offense with a child, and with possessing and accessing child pornography.

Levin’s lawyer Clayton Ruby confirmed Friday in court that his client will plead guilty to some of the seven charges, without clarifying which ones, reported the Toronto Star. Ruby also indicated that a guilty plea means there will be no trial.

Levin will be sentenced in March.

Under his watch as Ontario’s top education official from 2004 to 2009, Levin oversaw the development of an update to the provincial sex-education curriculum. Critics immediately slammed the proposal for encouraging the early sexualization of children and promoting a homosexual agenda.

Under the umbrella of “sexual diversity,” the curriculum teaches children to question whether they are a boy or a girl . . .

And I don’t want to type anymore of that.

Look, I know not everyone who writes or chooses sex education curriculum has bad motives.  And I do think there a paranoia about men working with kids that drives off good men and thereby impoverishes education, in both secular and church contexts.

But, without going into sordid details, a lot of the garbage pushed on kids under the guise of sex education is madness and does beg the question of the motivations of those who push said garbage on children.

And in this case, the motivation appears to be, at least in part, predatory.
