A Texas middle school is apologizing after sixth-grade students were sent home with a questionnaire assignment asking them to rank how comfortable they are with going to a gay bar or meeting a “female-to-male transsexual.”
The teacher who gave out the “inappropriate” 41-question assignment has been disciplined, according to the Birdville Independent School District.
“I wasn’t ready for my son to be exposed to these type of things,” said Ashley Brent, mom to a 12-year-old boy who brought home the assignment.
What were some of the questions?
Students were asked to rank how comfortable they were on a scale of 1 to 4 in these types of scenarios:
- “Your dentist is HIV positive.”
- “A friend invites you to a gay bar.”
- “Your sister invites her new boyfriend home to dinner. He is a female-to-male transsexual.”
