A 14-year-old girl was suspended from school for giving brutally honest responses to possible excuses a partner may give for not wearing condoms.
Jordan Fridman, 21, decided to share a photograph of her younger sister Mariah’s homework for a sex-education class at her school in Montreal on Imgur.
Fridman uploaded the image with the caption: “Two years ago today, my then 14-year-old sister got suspended for submitting these answers for her sex-ed class. I’m so proud of her.”
The homework assignment, entitled ‘Objection to Condoms’, asked students to list a few responses of their own.
One of the possible excuses included: “Condoms are gross, they’re messy; I hate them”, to which Mariah, now 16, responded: “So are babies”.
The excuse “just this once; we hardly ever have sex” was followed by “now you know why”, while “I don’t have a condom with me” was met with: “I don’t have my vagina with me”.
Explaining her decision to post the homework assignment, Fridman told BuzzFeed: “It came up in my Timehop. This was kind of funny, I thought: Let’s post this to Imgur."
However, she wasn’t expecting it to go viral. “Obviously, it’s kind of hilarious, but I don’t know, we’ve been freaking out over it,” she said.
Mariah's answers were applauded on Imgur. One user wrote: "Can confirm, babies are gross and expensive. Your sister was wise beyond her years," while another added: "'I don't have my vagina with me' give this girl a Nobel prize."
Her choice of language did raise a few eyebrows, with one teacher noting: "I respect the kind of answers she gave, but the language is a good reason for action. Perhaps not suspension though."
