Egypt integrates sex education ‘to stop homosexuality’

09/17/2022 | The New Arab

The Egyptian education ministry has ordered educational directorates to integrate concepts of sexual education, sexual harassment and sexual violence into the basic education curriculum, local media reported on Thursday. The move is an aim to protect children following increasing public concern that they may imitate “deviant” sexual behaviours – which many in Egypt consider to include homosexuality – as children watch content online, according to Sada El Balad and Egypt Independent. Egypt has banned films containing homosexual references and its Supreme Council for Media Regulation (SCMR) recently issued new regulations on “online streaming platforms such as Netflix and Disney”, to ensure content adheres to “societal norms and values”. This comes as the SCMR announced the number of subscribers on streaming platforms in Egypt has witnessed “large and unprecedented increases”.
