After a grade 7-8 teacher in Toronto posted graphic “safe sex” pamphlets in his classroom, at least one of which was originally designed for “mature” venues like gay bath houses, the Toronto District School Board has put him on home assignment, but defended the teacher for having “good intentions.”
"They were put up by the teacher in an attempt to speak more directly to youth on what is a sensitive topic," TDSB spokesman Ryan Bird told Sun News.
Bird told LifeSiteNews that Vroom has been removed from the school and is "on home assignment pending a review," but would not give any more details.
One of the pamphlets depicted two men apparently engaged in a sex act and gives explicit advice on oral sex. The pamphlet was produced by the AIDS Committee of Toronto (ACT) and is intended primarily for distribution to homosexual bars and bathhouses across the city. It is not intended to be given to children, said an ACT spokesman.
"We do use explicit language because we're targeting a specific community where this kind of language is warranted and needed," ACT spokesman Andrew Brett said.
Other pamphlets in the classroom reportedly included an ad for female condoms and the morning-after pill.
