Several parents appeared before the state Board of Education on Tuesday to complain about the Pono Choices sex education curriculum for middle-school students.
Many parents were upset by some of the graphic content in the curriculum. But Marissa Capelouto, a conservative Republican who is running for Congress, stood out.
Capelouto, who has two children in Kapolei Middle School and Kapolei High School, opened with: "I'm really mad. I'm pissed off."
It went downhill from that point.
I think you guys should all quit. You guys don't deserve our tax money.
I want to make sure that money that went through you guys to do this Pono Choices ...be done. Get rid of it. You don't need money for this. This is a madness. You guys took our rights out of our hands. You guys endanger our children. You guys completely crossed the line. You need to be sued.
OK? I don't know what statute you guys really violated in our Hawaii statutes. I want to choke people, I am telling you right now.
I'm from the Philippines -- born and raised there -- we never had things like this. We don't even know what the heck condom is.
OK? My daughter didn't have her period til 12. OK? I didn't have my period til 13. You guys show this to 11.
Somebody need to get skinned ...I'm really out ...Oh, my God. God ...don't give me anything to my Second Amendment. I don't want to lose that.
I am so serious. That's how bad it is.
I bet you you got your children probably in private school.
God. OK? You guys got to get rid of it. It needs to be burned!
I swear. I swear. I spoke to my daughter. My daughter is like ...Oh, my God. I don't know how to undo it.
Might as well you bring two gays in the school and have them go ahead and do it right there. Go do the penetration in the classroom.
That's why you guys need to leave. You need to quit.
Mrs. (School Superintendent Kathryn) Matayoshi, I seen you at (unintelligible). I want to choke you there. I'm sorry.
Because my daughter went through it. It hurts. `Cause I don't do that to my kids.
I don't even kiss my husband. You can ask my husband last time I kissed him on his lips.
You guys really crossed the line.
