When an older sister saw that her 14-year-old sister was coming home early from school, she wondered why. The teen thrust the controversial sex education quiz in her sisters face and told her that she was suspended because she had answered every question on the test. And when older sister Jordan Fridman, 21, took a closer look at the sex education quiz, she couldn’t help but burst out laughing. Her 14-year-old sister knew how to tell a good joke. Because it was just too funny not to share, Jordan shared the photo of her sister’s quiz with the caption, “My then 14 year old sister got suspended for submitting these answers for her sex-ed class. I’m so proud of her.” When you see what this teenage girl wrote, you’ll be on the floor laughing and you’ll understand why her school had no choice but to suspend her…
When you take a close look at the teen’s answers, you’ll realize that they’re actually correct. But she wrote them in a lewd and offensive way. That’s what got her kicked out of school. The fact that she used profanity and indecent imagery and a sarcastic tone in her answers was why she lost her privilege to learn at the school.
“As a teacher, I respect the kind of answers she gave,” one teacher wrote on Imgur. “But the language is a good reason for action. Perhaps not suspension though.”
When Fridman shared the quiz on Imgur, she never expected the quiz to go viral. But it exploded and thousands of people kept sharing it all over the internet. Now her little sister’s answers have become a sensation.
In an interview with Buzzfeed, Fridman said, “Obviously, it’s kind of hilarious, but I don’t now, we’re ben freaking out over it.”
The purpose of the quiz was to arm young women and men with a few comebacks in case their sexual partner didn’t want to use condoms. Because many people come up with excuses about why they would rather not wear one, the school wanted to prepare Fridman’s sister for that possible scenario. While condoms are not always affective at preventing pregnancy or the spreading of sexually transmitted diseases, they do a great job. They help people in the moment of sex take precaution against a consequence that could change their life forever. As more and more children engage in sex at a younger age than ever before and are exposed to sex in the news and on TV, they need to be educated on how to be safe. Condoms are a great way to protect people for a low cost.
But Fridman’s sister saw the opportunity to turn the assignment into a joke. And instead of answering the questions like the teacher wanted her to, she turned every answer into something that made thousands of people laugh.
Do you think her answers are very inappropriate? Does her suspension make sense for the offense that she committed? How would you react if your child or grandchild answered questions like this?
