It’s hard to imagine something less appropriate than showing a classroom full of Second Graders a cartoon with a man with a fully-erect Johnson standing over a child….
Yet that’s what happened in Connecticut this week:
In my hometown, in my daughters age group class of second grade, they showed an animated video today of a man with an ERECTION standing over a child!!!!!
this is not OK!!!!https://t.co/B4vgSa7Qle

Of course, the school district has tried to claim it was an “educational video” protecting against things like abuse.
Trending: Timothy Dixon: “People Get Ready…”
What do you think?
Is that a good enough reason to show a giant erect Schlong to a classroom of 2nd Graders?
Could the same goal have been accomplished in a different way?
You be the judge and watch for yourself….
Is this video ok in your mind for 2nd Graders?
Here’s what my friends over at The Blaze reported:
Second graders in Greenwich, Connecticut, were shown an animated video that displays the silhouette of a man with a graphic, full erection standing over what has been described as a “sad” girl during a “lesson on social and emotional learning.”
The New York Post reported that the kids were shown a cartoon titled, “Alfred Jr. & Shadow: A Short Story About Being Scared,” during a virtual class that the Greenwich Free Press said was “a lesson on social and emotional learning.”
The Free Press reported:
The description of the video says, “All children are normalscared, but what do children who are embarrassedscared or painfulscared need?”
It explains that The Alfred Jr. & Shadow – A Short Story about Being Scared was an educational film for children aged 6-14 years. The children learn about different ways of being scared, what they need when they are scared, and suggestions for actions. Adults also get some tips on how to meet a child who is scared.
At one point in the video, the narrator says, “Some children are afraid that their mom and dad will beat them, or that their parents will fight. Other children have experienced an adult touching or putting their penis in the child’s private parts or mouth.”
As the voiceover speaks, the image displayed for several seconds on the screen is what The Washington Examiner called “a dejected-looking child” next to “a sexually aroused silhouetted man.”
The Post provided a montage to describe the video, which is provided below.
What did one parent say?
Greenwich parent and Newsmax host Carl Higbie tweeted, “In my hometown, in my daughters age group class of second grade, they showed an animated video today of a man with an ERECTION standing over a child!!!!! this is not OK!!!!”
Higbie told the Free Press that he was “relieved” that his own second grader did not see the film, but that several other “disgusted” parents had reached out to him to express their outrage.
“That somebody thought this video was acceptable for second graders was abhorrent,” he told the outlet.
