The middle school’s health teacher assigned a quiz that defined 10 “sexual identity” terms, such as gay, lesbian, and transgender. The quiz required the sixth graders to identify and differentiate between various sexual orientations and identities, FOX 5 Atlanta reported.
This was a health class. Perhaps, she should have asked students to define “barebacker,” “versatile,” and “power bottom.”
There’s something just plain creepy about adults who get off on teaching twelve year olds about sex. But aside from that, why even spend time and resources teaching this? Every hour a teacher spends teaching, “there are 86 genders, and they are all valid, can you name them all (extra credit if you identify as more than one)” is an hour not spent teaching math, science, or history. You can bet Chinese schoolchildren don’t spend class time learning “to identify and differentiate between various sexual orientations and identities.”
The educational value of this is nil, but it makes teachers feel like good little Social Justice Warriors to devote class time to trendy social issues instead of practical learning.
Next week, she’ll be teaching how to kneel for the National Anthem while avoiding knee injuries.
