Red Hook, New York – A recent anti-bullying presentation at a middle school in New York that focused on homosexuality and gender identity has angered parents after their daughters have come home to tell them they were forced to ask another girl for a kiss.
According to reports, the session occurred last week at Linden Avenue Middle School in Red Hook, New York, near Poughkeepsie. A group of students from Bard College led two workshops for the youth, separated by gender.
During the workshop for girls, the 13 and 14-year-olds were told to ask one another for a kiss. They were also taught words such as “pansexual” and “genderqueer.”
Parent Mandy Coon told reporters that her daughter was very uncomfortable with the exercise.
She told me, Mom, we all get teased and picked on enough; now Im going to be called a lesbian because I had to ask another girl if I could kiss her, she lamented. “They also picked two girls to stand in front of the class and pretend they were lesbians on a date.”
Coon stated that she was especially irate over the matter because parents were given no warning about the presentations, nor an opportunity to opt out. She is also dismayed that college students were granted the right to come into the classroom and encourage her daughter to be sexually active.
“I am furious, she declared. I am her parent. Where does anyone get the right to tell her that its okay for her to have sex?
The school is overstepping its bounds in not notifying parents first and giving us the choice, another parent remarked. I thought it was very inappropriate. That kind of instruction is best left up to the parents.
According to reports, during the workshop for the adolescent boys, the students were counseled to keep a condom in their pocket at all times, and were taught how to identify a woman who is a “slut.”
I was absolutely furious really furious, an anonymous parent told reporter Todd Starnes. “These are just kids. Im dumbfounded that they found this class was appropriate.
However, both the school principal and the district superintendent are defending the workshops, and are advising that they will schedule more. Superintendent Paul Finch told The Poughkeepsie Journal that the presentation was “focused on improving culture, relationships, communication and self-perceptions.”
“[We] may require more notification to parents” in the future, he said, contending that the sessions are required under the state Dignity for All Students Act, which prohibits harassment and bullying in the classroom.
He advised that Principal Katie Zahedi and guidance counselors at the school worked with Bard students to plan the workshops. Likewise, Mark Primoff, a spokesman for Bard College, said that students had volunteered to give the presentation after the school invited the institution of higher learning to participate in the workshops.
Zahedi asserts that the sessions were rather about saying no to unwanted advances as opposed to encouraging homosexual acts.
In planning the discussion, we made it clear that absolutely no discussion of any sexual acts is appropriate to middle school, and they used the examples of a kiss,” she wrote in an online forum for parents. It was a separate activity for boys and girls and ultimately about respect and safety.
However, parents remain livid over the matter. A public meeting was held this week for residents to express their concerns.
It is not known whether girls actually had to kiss one another, or if the exercise stopped at the request.
Of course it's known. Everybody there was a witness or a participant. Why isn't it being reported?
If I had a daughter in this so called “school”, I’d be down there kicking some @$$ right now.
I am pretty certain that Katie is very practiced at kissing other females. I wonder how many of her students she's already molested.
Who else but a homosexual would be so blatantly recruiting in a middle school?
Notice that the entire "anti-bullying" thing was about sex!
The Second Law of Homosexulaity:
To the mentally healthy (heterosexual), sex is something you do.
To the mentally diseased ('homosexual'), sex is everything you are.
Sexual abuse of children. Someone should be hanged.
We are close to SHTF time.....you can smell it in the air.
Uh ... seems you are not .... new Lefty/Prog rules:
"So part of it, we have to break through our kind of private idea that kids belong to their parents, or kids belong to their families, and recognize that kids belong to whole communities".
A few years ago a 6 year old boy was expelled for kissing a girl on the cheek.
Obviously the school authorities are biased and hate boys.
And that is exactly how I handled government schools when mine was a kid. I got a Vice Principal fired once because I raised so much heck. Started with her and went straight up the ladder to the top. A month later she was gone.
My daughter got suspended for a week under their ‘rules’. I told her and them that was fine if that was the rule but what followed after was completely unacceptable. I never let teachers/admin, etc. intimidate me. They were no better or smarter in my view and I would tell them so. I also could back it up with a much more rigorous education than they had. They backed up pretty quick when I walked in.
Private school... Made the jump 2 years ago and haven’t looked back. People are telling us the things that now go on after we left. Yikes.
Mom, we all get teased and picked on enough; now Im going to be called a lesbian because I had to ask another girl if I could kiss her, This is their ultimate goal however that you will not be teased but accepted and the normal people will be teased and ostracized. This is in progress now.
“Send out your visitors so that we can have sex with them!
Keerful what Ya ask for! Those were Bardies, after all.
Bard has devolved over the years, as have most educational centers in America. I speak from a limited experience, as the Bardie I dated was a dance major (ballet) and an exception to the blond stereotype. She was even rather conservative, though she was a bit unusual in that aspect, even than.
Since then, devolution has occurred.
However, at least they were not instructing safe sex with animals. Speaking of sex with animals - what would a Bardie say about sex with a Muslim?
Questions, questions . . . . .
“But... all boys/men know the definition of slut. Its a female who has sex, but wont have sex with YOU.”
Aren’t you required to post a Keyboard Alert before such posts?
So much for the “actions of consenting adults in private” and the “born that way” arguments. Stalinists lie. Always.
You are right. She may be forcing them to accept her own perversions.
Bullying = not being accepting of the perversions of others.
And the homos always tell us that they won’t indoctrinate our children into homo-sex.
“And the homos always tell us that they wont indoctrinate our children into homo-sex.”
It’s always a slow played sort of thing.
You know, “Just the tip, just for a second, just to see how it feels.”
Hey nobody sending kids to public school should complain.
If you don’t mind the government indoctrination and demonizing of the Founders why should anyone care if they also try to change your kids sexual orientation?
1) Home school if you have the time
2) Private school (conservative) if you have the money.
3) Charter school (again conservative) if you can find one.
4) Sit back and just watch what the Dept Of Indoctrination (aka Dept. Of Education) can do when it uses your tax dollars to pay commie unionized teachers to teach your kids that SSAD (Same Sex Attraction Disorder) is normal and the founders were just evil white men.
That’s what I’m thinking; I would have just said ‘hell no and you can’t make me!’
Those preaching “anti-bullying” are bullies themselves. This is literally hazing.
