A Connecticut high school suffered a massive backlash after news broke that it had given kids an assignment where they had to combine sex acts with pizza ingredients.
The assignment appeared at the John F. Kennedy Middle School in Enfield, Connecticut, according to reports. In the assignment, kids were asked to use pizza toppings as metaphors for sex acts.
“We can use pizza as a metaphor for sex,” the assignment said, adding, “When you order pizza with your friends, everyone checks in about each other’s preferences, right?… The same goes with sex.”
The Daily Mail added that the assignment then told kids to define sex acts using pizza ingredients: “Here are some examples: Likes: Cheese = kissing, dislikes: Olives = Giving oral.”
The kids were then instructed to “draw and color your favorite type of pizza. What’s your favorite style of pizza? Your favorite toppings? What are your pizza no-nos? Now mirror these preferences in relation to sex.”
The assignment then noted, “for those of y’all who don’t like pizza or sex at all, feel free to draw out another food favorite, or include non-sexual activities.”
But after the group called Parents Defending Education exposed the assignment, the Enfield schools quickly removed the assignment then claimed it was all just a big ol’ “mistake.”
“The simple truth was it was a mistake. And I know that there are some who may not believe that. I know there are some who don’t necessarily maybe want that answer,” Schools Superintendent Christopher Drezek said. “In this particular case, I didn’t even get a chance to because the person who made the mistake jumped ahead of it before I was even notified that it had happened.”
He said that the content in the assignment was “inappropriate,” and insisted there’s no “hidden agenda,” Fox News reported.
“There was no secret cabal to indoctrinate kids on something. They sent the wrong document,” Drezek. And I’m not going to perpetuate this story any longer on their behalf. So that’s what happened. And none of us are happy that it happened. No one feels worse that it happened and the person that did it.”
Of course, there isn’t any agenda, huh? Why pizza used to describe sex acts is done every day, right?
