Middle School Workshop: Girls Ordered To Kiss Each Other

At Red Hook Middle School in New York during an "anti-bullying" workshop, teen girls were forced to pretend to be a lesbian couple and kiss each other.

Parents of children attending a Red Hook, New York, middle school are outraged after a recent anti-bullying presentation at Linden Avenue Middle School. [...]

Parents say their daughters were told to ask one another for a kiss and they say two girls were told to stand in front of the class and pretend they were lesbians on a date.

"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,'" parent, Mandy Coon, told reporters.

Coon says parents were given no warning about the presentation and there was no opportunity to opt-out. Both the school principal and the district superintendent are defending the workshops and advising they will schedule more.

The boys were also forced to attend a workshop. Only in their forum, they were taught to always keep a condom handy and how to spot girls who are "sluts."

And no, that isn't sarcasm. That is actually the workshop presented for the male students.
