Students Told to Use Pizza Toppings As Metaphors For Sex
My pizza would have no toppings. None. 😂
I guess people should be taught about sexual consent (which was presumably one of this assignment’s goals) – but this seems… a little inappropriate? And maybe that should be taught by the parents at home.
Can’t the concept of consent be taught without pressuring each student to list their sexual preferences? That seems to be pushing things.
As I read this further, it does say that students who sort of want to opt out of this can draw a non-sexual related image.

Students at a Connecticut middle school were reportedly instructed to use “pizza as a metaphor for sex” and asked to cite their favorite toppings — including cheese for “kissing” and olives for “giving oral.”
The eighth-graders at John F. Kennedy Middle School in Enfield received the “Pizza and Consent” assignment, which compared ordering a pizza to receiving consent, Fox News reported.
“We can use pizza as a metaphor for sex,” the assignment said, according to Parents Defending Education.

Idiot Associate Professor Accuses Juedo-Christian God Of Being a “MeToo” Violator, Saying Mary Did Not Give Consent
Sprankle is one of those moronic Non-Christians who has a stick up his ass about religion, and so he enjoys harassing and trolling religious people (Christians are usually a favored target with people like this), so he can sit back and watch them foam at the mouth or get upset over his put-downs of their faith – which doesn’t exactly make his atheism or Satanism or whatever he’s into look very good.
The following story – about Sprankle saying that God took sexual advantage of Mary – was all over social media the last day or two.
When will Sprankle Tweet something about Islam’s Prophet Mohammed being a child molester?

Various articles about consent apps for sex.

Not only are they far from sexy, which can hamper use, they miss the mark on discussing what consent actually is.

(Link): People are talking about sexual consent. Would an app help?
Smartphone apps We-Consent and Sa-Sie were among the first to attempt a digital solution with apps that allowed partners to check “yes” when they agreed to sex.
Now, LegalFling is joining the consent-by-click market, with the added cachet of being blockchain-based. The company says it will be available for download in the Apple and Android app stores in the next month.
Sure, it can be awkward to stop and talk about consent in the heat of the moment, which is why partners rely on non-verbal cues to give and interpret it.

How one teenager turned the worst night of her life into ‘Lauren’s Law’ – a state bill that could change the way high schoolers are taught about sex
by Glyn Peterson
Lauren Atkins has had to repeat the story of the worst night of her life so many times that she can now tell it in three sentences.
So, when an Oklahoma legislator asked Lauren to share it at a recent committee hearing, she was nervous but prepared.
Sentence number one: she went to a party last spring. Number two: she was incapacitated and a boy at the party told her friends he would take care of her. Three: after she finished throwing up, she recounts, he helped her onto a bed and raped her. “The word rape is hard for some people to hear,” Atkins says, “but I feel like me saying it is what actually catches their ear.”
If passed, Oklahoma House Bill 2734, nicknamed “Lauren’s Law” after Atkins, would provide high school teachers with the training and resources required to have nuanced, evidence-based conversations with their students about consent.

…Is #MeToo Enough?
“Carelessness” and “brutality” are two words that certainly typify the sexual “moment” we are in as a culture. How we expect to live in a 50 Shades sexual fantasy world while also managing to avoid it’s unintentional (but by no means unforeseen) ugly consequences totally escapes me.
…I rejoice that with the #MeToo movement we are seeing at least the beginnings of a reckoning—of society’s attempt to say, with a unified voice, “This we will not tolerate.”
But is #MeToo enough? It seems obvious to me that it is not.
As long as the roots of the problem are left unaddressed, the same ugly fruit will continue to spring up from polluted earth—now in one way, now in another. We will keep recycling brutality and abuse.
