A disturbing story is making its way out of a small community in Washington State, where residents are outraged over a school lesson that was delivered to fifth-grade children. During a sex education class led by the Onalaska Elementary School principal, graphic descriptions of oral and anal sex were purportedly delivered.

According to Fox News’ Todd Starnes, the 11-year-old students were being given a lesson on HIV-AIDS. However, the lesson took a bizarre turn when a student reportedly asked about other forms of sexual activity. At that point, the principal then delved into subjects many would deem too advanced for the children.

While the school hasn’t offered comment, Superintendent Scott Fenter defended the principal’s actions, claiming that she only gave “factual information” and “no demonstrations.” Fenter also claims that the lessons that were offered came from “state-adopted curriculum.”

“In reality, she stuck to the curriculum,” the district leader told Seattle’s Q-13 Fox News. “It’s pretty difficult to talk about STDs or sexually transmitted diseases without explaining what that is, or how it’s transmitted.”

Parents are reacting harshly to the lesson, though, claiming that the principal went too far.

“I’m one pissed off cowboy, I didn’t appreciate them teaching my daughter – who is innocent of that – at all,” James Gilliand said in an interview with Starnes.

“Basically, how I feel is, it’s just the same as raping somebody, but you’re raping their innocence instead of their physical being,” he added in the Q-13 appearance.

Another parent, Curtis Pannkuk, believes that the curriculum must be changed. Echoing Gilliand’s declarations, he said, “children were traumatized.”

Starns provides the graphic details of what the parents claim their children heard in the classroom:

“You take a man’s penis and you put it in your mouth – that’s what the girls do to the boys,” their daughter told the couple. “The boys spread the girls legs apart and put their mouths down on the vaginas.”

Pannkuk said he became enraged as his 11-year-old daughter recounted what the principal had told the classroom.

“Steam was coming out my ears,” he said. “I was very, very upset. I understand that they need to teach these kids sex education – but 11-year-olds? I have a problem with that. The wife and I were very – very upset.”

Gilliland said another child explained to their parents that it “was basically like a lollipop.”
