Parents Outraged After Eighth Graders Asked to List Sex Acts They’d Be Comfortable Engaging In 

A Connecticut school district has apologized after high school students were given an assignment that asked them to detail the kinds of sex acts they’d prefer to engage in as part of a lesson about consent that used pizza as a metaphor.

Enfield Public Schools’ superintendent Christopher Drezek apologized to parents during a school board meeting after the “Pizza & Consent” activity sparked outrage on February 8.

The Christian Post reports that parental advocacy group Parents Defending Education shared a PDF of the assignment to their website, which they say was promptly removed from the district website after parents complained.

“Pizza & Consent” informs students that “we can use pizza as a metaphor for sex!” and details how pizza topping preferences are similar to preferences for various sexual activities and that, just as a group of friends might check who wants what on their pizza before calling in an order, individuals should check on a prospective sexual partner’s preferences for sex acts they’d be comfortable engaging in.

“You have to check in with your partner(s) and ask for their preferences,” the assignment reads. “Your partner(s) might be comfortable with one sexual activity, but not another. Maybe your partner(s) only want to be touched a certain way, or maybe your partner(s) prefer to use certain language. Or maybe they don’t like or want sex at all.  You’ll never know if your wants, desires, and boundaries are compatible with theirs unless you ask.”

This is followed by a blank pizza that students are informed to color in with their preferred “toppings,” which they are meant to equate to various sex acts. For example, “Cheese = Kissing” and “Olives = Giving oral,” the assignment explains.

Drezek admitted that the assignment had been “inappropriate” and a “mistake.”

“I know there are some who may not believe that, I know there are some who don’t necessarily maybe want that answer,” he added.

“Normally, I would take responsibility and I still do when … one of our staff members [makes] an inadvertent mistake,” he stated. “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.”

However, parents were not pleased with this explanation.

“Since when … has it become acceptable for a teacher to ask a student what their sexual wants, desires and boundaries are?” one parent asked, adding that she was not satisfied with the prior explanation that “the incorrect version of this assignment was posted in the curriculum by mistake and inadvertently used for instruction in the classroom.”

“Why didn’t the teachers that taught this assignment catch it and question it? Do they just teach the curriculum blindly, not questioning the morality of assignments required for the unit? Why didn’t our curriculum committee catch this?” she also noted.

“What is their role, if not to oversee the curriculum and make sure that these types of mistakes don’t end up as homework for our children?”

HD Editor’s Note: Why Is This News Biblically Relevant?

Elle Reynolds, an assistant editor at the Federalist, recently wrote an article explaining that parents “should assume government schools will sexually abuse their children until proven otherwise.”

Reynolds provided a long and damning list of examples that have come to light recently showing abuse, manipulation, and sexual exploitation committed by public schools across the country. 

The examples shared in the article, she underscored, “are only some of the incidents that have been brought to light — and they merely scratch the surface.”

“Exposing vulnerable children to sexually explicit material and indoctrinating them to question their own identities, often against their parents’ wishes, is nothing less than mental abuse and exploitation,” she asserted.

“The examples from all across the country, from known crazies in California to small-town red state school districts, should be enough to convince parents to be wary, epecially of what schools don’t tell them,” Reynolds insisted.

“Nothing should be more paramount for parents than protecting their children,” she continued. “If a stranger offers to babysit your child, you don’t accept the offer with the rationale that your child might be fine. You expect anyone to whom you entrust your child to first prove he is worthy of stewarding your most sacred possession.”

“Public schools are no different, and the repeated instances proving their abuses should drive your trust even further away,” she wrote. “Maybe, like many Americans, you don’t feel you have what you think are feasible alternatives. Or maybe your local school district is sheltered from some of the most radical exploitation. But it behooves you to verify that first before betting your child on it.”

In today’s day and age, we see a 2 Timothy 3:1-9 humanity doubling down on influencing our next generation. At the expense of our children’s innocence, children are being groomed in a coordinated effort, to manipulate their perception of morality and sins described in Scripture as being a key marker of a society’s rebellion against God and His design.

There is a spiritual battle behind these motivations. Satan is attempting to set children up for a life apart from and in opposition to their Creator.

Parents need to be made aware that their children are being targeted and have a Biblical understanding of their responsibility in their role to protect their kids.

Now more than ever, it is vital for parents to be Biblically educating their children and recognize their responsibility to bring them up with the unshakable and unchanging truth of God’s Word.

Ken Hamcommenting on the extreme nature of today’s “sex education” in schools, explained that Christians have a responsibility “to stand against this sexualization of our children.”

“As Christians and citizens, we need to stand against this sexualization of our children,” Ham urged. “And as parents, we need to instruct our children with the truth of God’s Word and what he says about marriage, gender, and sexuality (with age-appropriate counsel). We also need to keep these issues in prayer before our Lord daily.”

In A World Encased In Violence, Prophecy Is The Stabiliser Of Our Faith

God did not provide His Word so that it would simply die in the hands of the spiritually dead. He expected, as evidenced by Habakkuk, that it be shared – particularly that which was warning people of the two paths available – righteousness or wickedness.
