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.
