Uptight parents with sex on the brain will always have a problem with a matter like this.

This is a Psychology class and not Sex Ed so where do they get the sexual innuendo's and conductation from. I swear alot of parents nowadays have their heads into the gutter that they forgot what it's like to be a human being.

The issue isn't whether or not the quiz is relevant to a psychology class. I also think that indirectly calling me small-minded and making the assumption that I "have no wish to understand why we are who we are" was a little uncalled for.


Indirectly being the key here; I didn't actually call you anything, you assumed I had because of the wording. You could take my post as an insult or not.



The issue here is whether this quiz was appropriate for children. Or, rather, whether it was appropriate for an adult to give the quiz to children. Or, even further, whether it was appropriate for an adult teacher to give the quiz to children in a school setting. And Lemon.Fresh, AP or not, they are still minors. I was reading The Grapes of Wrath at the age of six. Does that mean I was ready to date an adult? My point being that just because you're intellectually at a certain point doesn't make you emotionally on the same level. Teenagers are even younger emotionally than they are biologically, in my opinion, and it's gross for an adult to be speaking to them this way, through a quiz or not.


Blah blah blah. It is innuendo. It is harmless as there is no sexual meaning to any of the questions unless placed there by the mind. The only way the questions become sexual is if the person reading it already has sex on the brain. PERIOD.


Yes, pun intended there.



A lot of very young kids are being taught what sex is. I took sex ed in sixth grade, but I knew what sex was years before then. Does that mean that third graders should be given the quiz because if they understand the innuendos they've already been exposed to sex anyway? I'm guessing there are no parents in this thread.

Then your issue is with kids learning what sex is too early; not the test. And yes, there wouldn't be anything wrong with giving a third grader this quiz; either they answer the questions or they giggle then answer the questions.




This test isn't sexual anymore than what the readers mind ascribes to it. That is the basic definition of innuendo.
End of discussion.

A perverted test is given to children under the guise of AP, and all I see is adults saying it's funny and harmless? No wander the morality of our education system is going down the drain, too many stupid parents who think everything is funny and harmless. One day, they're going to start handing out dildo's to your daughters and rubber vaginas to your sons, and you'll still be laughing and giving the OK.

If you think the school system should take it upon themselves to expose kids to perverted teaching techniques, maybe you should not have any kids.

Giving this quiz was not wise. What happens then when a sutdent says something like this to a student in the hallway? Does he or she get by with telling the principal that it wasn't meant in a sexual way when that student is accused of sexual harassment? How about preparing students for the real world? If he/she says this in the workplace there will be a lawsuit.

Is it safe to say that children in highschool are already sexually aware? And as such, the very first thing that might pop into their minds, upon reading this quiz, is sexually related? Even elementary kids would be able to connect the dots in that quiz. Could there have been a better way to teach that concept without degrading to perverted pornographic filth?

I don't know about you people, but I sure don't want my kids taking ANY class that talks about blowing, sucking, swallowing, eating, spreading and ejaculating as a means to convey simple psychological concepts. I mean, come on! Are you people for real?

And that would be the point. Anybody who is already exposed to the ideas will put those ideas into the questions.


Also, what do you mean "you people"?

These questions are taken directly from the game "Dirty Minds" - they are obviously meant to have sexual innuendo, and the answers are logical (and hilariously surprising if you have a "dirty mind"). This said, it does come across as a bit explicit - but frankly, it's nothing these kids haven't heard or talked about before. The parents need to get a clue - their child is most likely not the innocent, pure little angel that they think, especially at that age.

So I think the kids, rather than the parents, should have the say on whether it offends them or not. Treat your kids with a bit more maturity - you're smothering them with misguided values.


Yeah these are straight from dirty minds, I've played the game before. Parents need to get real their kids are exposed to much worse on their tv's and computers.

yes teenagers are sexually aware, but that doesn't mean they should be encouraged.
the legal age for adults is 18. then they can read ands laugh and joke about it all they want.
now i wonder how many of the people here that say it all right for him to let their kids read this,
would want him taking their daughters out and schoolin them.

Could there have been a more academic approach to teach the same psychological concept? Or is this the best they could come up with?

Britney Separs, Ke$ha, Nicki Minaj, Lady Gaga and Beyonce videos are way more suggestive and explicit yet parents have absolutely zero complaints about them. Until parents take more charge over the media that their kids are exposed I will consider taking them seriously until then no.

Are those videos being shown in classrooms?

This does not matter because one stance shall apply universally. Not pick and choose the cause of the moment. Shows like Oxygen's The Bad Girls Club, MTV's Jersey Shore are actually allowed to be discussed about that leads to tween and teen students dressing provocatively.

I'd say give the teacher a raise. it's a psychology class, and testing one's own perceptions is pretty damned standard.

The parents need to grow the hell up, frankly. Either that or start wearing belt buckles on their heads so the rest of us can see what stodgy puritans they are, and mock accordingly

So a parent has no right to stand up against sexually inappropriate educational material, because they, according to you, haven't properly stood up to the sexually inappropriate musical industry first? Therefore, rendering them hypocrites unworthy of deciding what is appropriate for their children's education?

Come on, please tell me you're joking or that you didn't thoroughly think your response through.

How can you know what all parents do? Meanwhile how about showing a little respect to those students who do not live and be entertained in this way? There are still young people who do not search the internet for sex and who do not watch these things on TV.

Yeah you're absolutely right. There is only one way to teach kids about perception, and that is by making them read about fingering holes, going 'down', blowing and swallowing. I can't think of any other intelligent way to teach kids how to learn about psychogical perceptions. After all, sexual suggestion is the best way to stear the academic minds of our children. Plus it's fun for everyone, especially the brain dead parents who watch harmless porn all day anyway. (rolling eyes)

This has everything to do with parents keeping their kids sheltered from everything and when the item they should've been prepared for happens whereas they weren't prepared for it they want to cry foul.

Parents also do not want to teach their kid anything which will lead t problems.

Parents of those who endorse openess is less likely to be a drug addict, alcoholic and be sexually promiscious as the kids are taught that they won't get demonized nor attacked for bringing an item up.

I had simply said to protest the entertainment industry before you protest a part of a schools ciriculum.

I endorse shows like iCarly, Victorious, Big Time Rush as they are not selling kids on sex.

this quiz is bothersome. i get what the teacher is trying to do...but this was not appropriate for the classroom. i dont care what kids are exposed to outside of the classroom on a daily basis. thats not what we're talking about here. in this situation we're talking about the classroom and what is and is not appropriate for that setting and this quiz was really not appropriate for that setting.

i honestly dont think it matters that these are AP students. being intellectual does not necessarily mean also being mature. these kids might be in a higher academic level than their peers but that doesn't necessarily mean they're more mature and/or emotionally or psychologically developed as well. the message may be missed due to the approach used to teach it...

and i also want to mention that if these questions are taken from the game "dirty minds" its marketed (well, at least where im located anyway) as a game for ADULTS. ie, 18+. its in the adult section of the novelty store in the local mall. i dont think its appropriate for a high school setting..

You are absolutely right about every one of your points here. But what a parent does or doesn't do is their business. What can not be denied, however, is the absolutely stupidity and morally irresponsible notion that our school system should use sexually perverse material to convey scientific concepts to children. That is, unless, you consider highschool kids as full grown and mature adults.

Would you want your science teacher giving your daughter a dildo and calling it a rocket ship? do you think that would be a groundbreaking teaching method? How about Spanish teachers teaching bad words? After all, kids swear anyways, we wouldn't want these kids to live sheltered lives would we. And let's allow the teachers to prescribe these teaching modalities without parental consent. Who cares, it's all fun and harmless right?

I have a better idea, in biology class, let's give highschool kids penis shaped lolipops and teach them about the body's natural gag reflex. Why not? It's harmless AND educational, It would be entertaining for the kids plus the parents can have a good giggle. (this is sarcasm)

We can go on and on with this path of insanity. And that is exactly the path our educational system is taking. While the parents laugh and giggle their way to absolute brain dead stupidity, their children slowly become low-evolved sexual animals, incapable of understanding anything without reference to fornication and oral sex.

This shouldnt be a high school psychology test, it should be for 20+ because they are more mentally mature than teenagers in heat.
