Florida dad queries 'revenge sex' in biology question
Created : 30 April 2018
One Florida dad shared his daughter's biology exam question which referred to 'revenge sex' and asked students to determine the child's blood type based on the 'baby daddy'.
According to a Newsweek report, Omar Austin, of Jacksonville, was shocked to learn the question was actually part of his daughter's anatomy class assignment.
The question asked, "Ursula was devastated when her boyfriend broke up with her after having sex. To get revenge, she had sex with his best friend the next day. Ursula had a beautiful baby girl nine months later."
"Ursula has type O blood, her ex-boyfriend has AB blood and his best friend is type A blood. If her baby daddy is her ex-boyfriend what could the possible blood type(s) of her baby NOT be?”
Austin said it was not the term 'baby daddy' which concerned him but the sexual behaviour being promoted within the framework of the question.
“What truly upset me is the fact that they’re talking about revenge sex,” Austin said.
“Talking about a teenager having revenge sex, or a person for that matter, having revenge sex to get back at someone, is not something I think is appropriate at any level. It’s not something that’s accepted in the workplace and it’s not something that is typically accepted socially. So, why should it be accepted on a scholastic level?”
The issue was brought up with the principal at Westside High School in Jacksonville where his daughter goes, and he said he would look into it.
Duval County Public Schools has since released a statement calling the question “highly inappropriate” and said appropriate and corrective action would be taken.
