From Andrew Bolt which has the lead in, “The Andrews Government is mad, you know”. It’s about an article from The Oz today which I saw but skipped over. It is no longer safe to skip a thing if you are going to keep up with each new step into depravity. This is the story, Year 8 kids to study sex ads under ‘domestic violence’ curriculum, and I will just repeat the same quote from Andrew:
Students as young as 12 will study sexualised personal ads and write their own advertisements seeking the “perfect partner’’ as part of a new school curriculum supposed to combat family violence.
The classroom material includes an example ad from a “lustful, sexually generous’’ person seeking “sexy freak out with similarly intentioned woman’’.
Another ad — to be analysed by Year 8 students aged 12 and 13 — is from a “30-year-old blonde bombshell, wild and sexy, living in the fast lane’’.
“Can you keep up?’’ it asks.
A third example cites a “hot gay gal 19yo’’ who is seeking an “outgoing fem 18-25 into nature, sport and night-life for friendship and relationship’’.
Children are instructed to “write your own personal ad for the perfect partner’’.
The Building Respectful Relationships material, which is meant to prevent family violence, is replacing religious education lessons during class time in Victorian state schools this year. The Andrews Labor government yesterday announced it would spend $21.8 million over the next two years to expand the program to kindergarten and primary schools as part of its $572m package to combat family violence. The funding will target 120 “lighthouse schools’’ and train thousands of teachers, and up to 4000 childcare workers, to teach the respectful relationships program.
Are there really people in our departments of education who think this makes sense? Our students may need a safe space at school after all, but unfortunately, they may need it to keep themselves safe from their teachers.
