What the hell, why not?
Parents at the posh Columbia Grammar & Preparatory School are outraged they were never told of a fourth “R” being added to the curriculum: raunch.
In addition to the usual reading, ‘riting and ‘rithmetic, the school this month launched lessons on porn — without informing families or allowing them to opt out, parents fumed.
When juniors at the $47,000-a-year Manhattan school showed up for a health and sexuality workshop, most thought it was “just going to be about condoms or birth control,” a student told The Post.
Instead, it was something called “Pornography Literacy: An intersectional focus on mainstream porn,” taught by Justine Ang Fonte, who’s the director of Health & Wellness at another elite prep school, Dalton.
Fonte’s presentation, some of which was seen by The Post, included a list of the most searched pornographic terms of 2019, including “creampie,” “anal,” “gangbang,” “stepmom” and more.
It may seem odd, but I don’t have much of a problem with any of that. Why? Because so far, although there’s definitely some kink to be found, I see no mention of the words “transgender,” “cis-het,” “genderqueer,” or other such Wokistry on the list. While certainly not what anyone would call plain-vanilla, it’s still straight-up heterosexual. Makes for a refreshing change of pace, and not at all what I would expect.
One part of the porn presentation involved something called the “marketability of Only Fans,” the hot new app used mostly for sex work. One slide included a photo of a pretty young woman who appeared to be promoting OnlyFans-type work.
“I identify as non-binary,” she is quoted as saying, “but because that hasn’t hit the general consciousness of the adult industry, I say ‘girl,’ because that’s what people who want to buy my content will be looking for.”
Dammit. Oh well, so much for that, I guess.
On a more serious note, it would be easy to miss what I consider to be the crucial issue here. See if you can spot it.
The female Columbia Prep student said most of the kids, aged 16 and 17, watched the lesson on Zoom from home — which is what alerted some parents to it — but some were at the school and made to assemble in the gym together to watch it on their laptops.
“We were all so shocked and mortified,” the girl told The Post. “We were all like, ‘Why are they doing this? Why do they think it’s OK?’
The girl spoke to The Post with her mother. Both spoke on the condition of anonymity.
“No one wants to be cancelled or lose their livelihood and that can be done in an instant,” the mother said. “Most parents feel the same way I do about not going public but at the same time we’re incredibly frustrated by what’s going on. None of the parents knew this was planned. We were completely left in the dark. It makes us wonder what else the school is up to.”
So this is where we are in 2021 “America,” folks: parents don’t dare utter a peep of complaint concerning the ethical propriety of having some freaky-deaky lesbo “teacher” indoctrinate their kids into the world of hardcore porn for fear of being “cancelled.”
Think on that for a minute or two. Incredibly, it does get even more appalling from there, but I’ll let y’all click on over for that.
