Kids In The UK Are Now Being Asked To Define Different Types Of Porn During Health Class

Source

A mum is 'fuming' over her 11-year-old daughter's school work which asked children to define hardcore pornography - among other 'inappropriate' topics.

Two words that we Americans don't utilize enough. Mum and fuming. Tremendous words that just aren't used enough in our society, carrying on.

Children in Years 7, 8 and 9 at Archbishop Sentamu Academy in Hull were set the work in their Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE) class as part of their home learning.

I feel like the parents aren't exactly in the wrong here. One could argue that kids will find out about this stuff anyway and while I agree, that doesn't mean you should be teaching 11-year-olds about it. Just stick to the basic, old school lessons and we should be gravy.

The health classes - this school calls it PSHE, pretty much whatever your shitty school calls the class where they teach you about puberty - that kids have to take in school are the absolute worst. It's usually just the same song and dance about how drugs and alcohol are bad for you. 

You do, however, get to a certain age where you know the subject matter changes. It moves into the puberty aspect of life. I mean, who could forget the first time they heard their teacher say "testies", followed by hysterical laughter? I know I'll certainly never forget it. 

Teachers have asked the 11 to 14-year-olds to 'define' pornography, soft pornography, hardcore pornography and transsexual pornography, as well as female genital mutilation, wet dreams, trafficking, male circumcision, breast ironing and more

However, that is - or was - what we learned about. The most I was ever learned in health was that - cover your ears kids - a penis goes into a vagina and babies get made. Perhaps there were a few more lessons than that one but who on earth remembers anything else from those rather useless classes. That's honestly all I ever learned (besides the extreme knowledge I gained about PCP for that one slideshow). I was certainly never asked to define various types of videos in which the penis goes into said vagina. 

That subject matter also just seems like a very slippery slope. By giving kids this list of words to define, you know they're gonna go the logical thing and just google the answers. It's what every student who has defined anything has done. 

It will NOT be fun when kids have to explain to their parents why their search history is littered with searches for "hardcore porn" and "genital mutilation". At that point, you might as well just have them define categories too. Bukkake, gangbang, the whole nine. Make sure they really know what goes on. 

Luckily the mum of children aged seven, 11 and 16 was warned about the work in a Facebook post by another parent before her daughter began working on it.

You know something is a big deal if it makes it into the local Facebook group. 

"Hell has no fury like an angry mom on Facebook"

As soon as something like this goes to Facebook, it's curtains. Every last mother from this school with comment on the mega thread designed to shit on this individual teacher. No one will leave their voice unheard, this teacher will be lucky to have a job after the Facebook parents get to her. I've seen literal companies fall, victim, just because posts in my local Facebook group snowball and virtually turn into a cancel parade. It's some of the most insane shit of all time.

There is a part of me that thinks it's not a bad idea to teach kids about the 'dangers' of online pornography, how to avoid blowing up your family computer with the deadliest virus of all time, and whatnot, just maybe wait until they're a little older and not 11 fucking years old. I could barely even understand the concept of another gender when I was 11 years old, let alone all the details that come along with it.

PS - This would make for an unreal episode of South Park. Mr. Mackey being forced to teach all of the kids about hardcore porn and whatnot would be all time.
