Grade 8 and 9 students at a Chilliwack, BC school were accidentally given "inappropriate" sex education material as part of a guest speaker's presentation on healthy relationships.
Chuck Lawson, the principal of C.H.A.N.C.E. Alternative School, apologized after parents complained about the "sex cards" in their children's take-home bags.
The cards define sexual acts from A to Z, using slang and graphic descriptions.
The National Post reports:
The card creators themselves say the cards were not meant to be distributed to minors in school.
“This resource in particular is for gay, bi, queer men,” said Chris Thomas, spokesman for the AIDS Committee of Toronto. “Generally, we use them in bars and bathhouses.”
The Post quoted an expert who said that the mix up could be turned into a teaching moment:
Kristen Gilbert, director of education for Options for Sexual Health, said the packing error could be a learning opportunity for parents to have a conversation with their child. (...)
She noted that the average person isn’t going to respond favourably to the information presented in the cards.
“They are going to ask, ‘Why would anyone want to do that?’ It’s an opportunity to hear that voice that goes ‘eww, that sounds gross.’ That’s a great time to listen to that voice … and be able to say, ‘That thing I heard about is not for me.’”
Ontario’s sex-ed curriculum sexualizes young children, undermines parental authority and imposes the government's morality on every Ontario family.
