A Florida father is speaking out after discovering a bizarre and inappropriate question on his high school daughter’s anatomy homework. While glancing through her assignments, Omar Austin noticed one question used the words “baby daddy” and “revenge sex.” His curiosity piqued, naturally, he read on:
“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 9 months later. Ursula has type O blood, her ex-boyfriend is type AB blood, and his best friend is type A blood. If her baby daddy is her ex-boyfriend, what could her baby’s possible blood type(s) NOT be?”
Austin initially assumed the question was a joke of some sort but quickly realized that it was a legitimate part of the assignment. His daughter attends Westside High School in Jacksonville, and he demanded answers from school officials.
“The words ‘baby daddy’ and ‘baby mama’ being used, that’s foresight,” Austin told WTLV. “The fact that she’s having sex with one guy and to get revenge on this guy she has sex with his best friend the next day? I mean, that’s just not something that I want to teach any student.”
Duval County Public Schools, the school district where Westside High is located, has released a statement thanking Austin for bringing the issue to their attention. It assured parents that the “highly inappropriate” question “was not part of a district assessment” and that an internal investigation had been launched to uncover how the question landed on the homework. School officials promised that “appropriate and corrective action will be taken” when the culprit is found.
