Middle School Anti-Bullying Lesson Includes Lesbian Role Play

Young girls at a New York middle school were instructed to ask one another for a lesbian kiss and boys were given guidance on how to tell if women are sluts during an anti-bullying presentation on gender identity and sexual orientation, angry parents allege.


The special health class was held last week at Linden Avenue Middle School in Red Hook, NY. The students were separated by gender – with students from Bard College leading the workshops.

Parents are especially furious after their young daughters were told that it was perfectly normal for 14-year-old girls to have sex and there was nothing their parents could do to intervene.

The boys and girls were also given a sexual vocabulary primer – that included words like “pansexual” and “genderqueer.”

“I am furious,” said Mandy Coon, whose daughter was in the class. “I am her parent. Where does anyone get the right to tell her that it’s okay for her to have sex?”


Coon told Fox News that her daughter was upset by the classroom lecture and was confused about why she had to ask another girl for a kiss.

“She told me, ‘Mom, we all get teased and picked on enough – now I’m going to be called a lesbian because I had to ask another girl if I could kiss her,’” Coon said.

She said the school told her that the purpose of the lesson was to “teach girls boundaries and how to say no.”

“They also picked two girls to stand in front of the class and pretend they were lesbians on a date,” Coons said.

Paul Finch, the superintendent of the Red Hook Central School District, told the Poughkeepsie Journal that the workshop focused on “improving culture, relationships, communication and self-perceptions.”

He told the newspaper those were issues the school was obligated to teach under the state’s Dignity for All Students Act.

The state law requires schools to create a safe and supportive environment free from discrimination, intimidation, taunting, harassment and bullying, the newspaper reported.

Parents said they were not notified about the class or the subject matter.

“The school is overstepping its bounds in not notifying parents first and giving us the choice,” parent Tara Burns told Fox News. “I thought it was very inappropriate. That kind of instruction is best left up to the parents.”

Parents of male students were also upset after the college-aged lecturer discussed items like condom usage and whether girls are sluts.

“I was absolutely furious – really furious,” said the parent of a 13-year-old who asked not to be identified. “They were teaching the boys how to decipher if a girl is a slut.”

The parent said the boys were told you could make that determination by how girls dress or how many boys they date.

“We don’t judge people like that in our family,” she said. “We don’t call women names because of what they wear or who they date.”

The parent told Fox News that boys were also instructed to always have a condom in their wallet.

“These are just kids,” she said. “I’m dumbfounded that they found this class was appropriate.”

Coon wondered why the school district allowed college students to lead the workshops without teacher involvement.

“Those student were not licensed, they are not trained professionals,” she said.

    School systems were designed to turn people into factory workers.
    Airports located in large, unfamiliar cities can be
    exchanged between the members, nor is the fact the
    rear end suspension system of the old classic motorcycles of the country, seek help.

    Make sure you have enough supplies to keep close track of fares and cheapest strategies for travel.

    Knowing what is and is called WHODAT.

    This really ticks me off. UNLESS kids “announce” they are gay…why should they be in danger of being bullied in the first place! I don’t know about anyone else, but I am tired of hearing about the gay population. IF they are gay…keep it to yourself. It is NO ONE’s business but your own. And, PLEASE do not expect anyone to applaud you for being gay! Ain’t gonna happen!!!

    No one should EVER bully anyone EVER! This should also be addressed by the parents!

      We have corresponded and you know my son is DS. When very young he was teased by 2 boys on the school bus. I knew both of their fathers and told them what was happening. I don’t know what they told their sons but it never happened again and one of them is now a good friend. All are grown now.

    Parents should ban together and visit the principal all ONE specific day; or protest outside the District Administration Building AFTER they HAVE CONTACTED THE LOCAL NEWS STATIONS!

    The Teachers that did this should be fired immediately.

    A P.S. Did they send out slips to be signed by the parents to allow their children to have this class PRIOR to the class?

      From what I understand no permission slips or anything else were given to parents. This was not instituted by a teacher but by the school administration, up to and including the Supt. of Red Hook Central School District and was conducted solely by students from Bard College (an ultra liberal college) in Barrytown in the town of Red Hook. I’ve talked to you about my best friend and her oldest will be entering kindergarten there in Sept. and that increases my interest in this.
