School assigned "sex game" to kids, so parents fight back
A recall effort is underway after several sick allegations
Parents have begun organizing efforts to recall the Eugene, Oregon school board after several allegations of explicit sex acts being discussed in the classroom with children, including allegations of a sick “sex game.”
Some parents say that their high schoolers were given an assignment to write a “sexual fantasy” story that merely restricted students from mentioning “penetration of any kind or oral sex (no way of passing an STI).”
The 10-point writing assignment was given to students who had missed health class coursework at Churchill High School and as Fox News reports, also called upon them to choose items such as candles, massage oil, feathers, or flavored syrup to use in the story.
One parent whose daughter was in class, however, say that students in the "Health 2 Human Sexuality” class were asked to choose pieces of paper that had sex acts on them out of a hat.
In another instance, the teenagers were asked to play "With Whom Would You Do it,” a game which involved a spinning wheel labeled with sex acts.
"My daughter told me it was literally up on the board and it mentioned you know who are you going to have anal penetration with, oral sex, licking of the ear, kissing and vaginal sex," one parent told Fox, decrying the assignment as "disgusting and wrong."
Another parent told Fox about a passage in a book her son, before being pulled out of the district to be homeschooled, had been assigned in which a young man becomes aroused while wrestling with other boys.

The Kentucky state legislature has successfully overridden Governor Andy Beshear’s veto of a bill banning transgender treatments for children, but the move was met with a crush of protesters storming the state Capitol building last week.
Hundreds had convened outside the legislative session to voice their opposition to the bill, but as a local reporter for the Lexington Harald-Leader noted that "protesters moved inside once the legislature gaveled in, chanting and jeering loudly from the Capitol’s halls."
The event came just two days after a transgender person shot and killed six at a Christian elementary school in Tennessee and evoked comparisons to January 6, 2021, when pro-Trump protesters stormed the U.S. Capitol to protest the certification of the 2020 election.
The Kansas State Police arrested 19 individuals for criminal trespassing.
The Republican majority state legislature met on Wednesday to override the veto from Beshear to pass Senate Bill 150, which bans so-called “gender-affirming” healthcare for children.
The bill also prohibits discussions surrounding gender identity and sexuality in public schools, requires schools to restrict bathrooms on the basis of biology, and allows teachers to decline to use a student’s preferred pronoun.

The Build-A-Bear brand has launched a collectable tribute to famed drag artist RuPaul, a move which was hailed by transgender advocates on social media.
RuPaul revealed the bear in an “unboxing” video on Instagram video last week, exclaiming “I feel like a proud parent.”
The prestuffed product is fashioned after the drag persona and sports long blonde hair, gold sequined gown, and dramatic drag makeup.
The New York Post reports that the bear will only be available online, in a section of the Build-A-Bear website’s “Bear Cave,” which is “filled with unexpected collabs and unique plush gifts, intended for shoppers 18 and older.”
While many on social media reacted with positive amusement at the launch of the RuPaul bear, others pointed out that its release coincided with the passage of a law in Tennessee which banned “adult cabaret performances” in public or within the presence of children.
“At a time in which drag is being criminalized in the US, Build-A-Bear has released a RuPaul bear and I think that’s just FANTASTIC,” one opponent of the law wrote.
One the other hand, others pointed to this being one of the latest examples of a well-known U.S. company taking sides in a raging cultural battle over whether or not it is appropriate to incorporate LGBT culture into children’s culture and public education.
“Latest member of the go woke, go broke club,” one reader commented on The Post’s website.
The adults who assigned the sex game probably get their “jollies” reading the students’ papers. Those sex games that students are required to participate in and papers that students are required to write should fall under the statutory rape law but it probably doesn’t.
