Canadian school districts want to know the sexual orientation of their teachers. Mike Antonucci of EIA Intercepts parodies the search for sexual diversity in Halifax schools and then wonders if it’s impossible to parody when Toronto’s school board joins the fun.
“In the six-question survey being distributed Monday, teachers, administrators and support staff will be asked to identify themselves as bisexual, gay, heterosexual, lesbian, transgender, transsexual or two-spirited (an aboriginal term).”
I’m sorry, even this is much too limiting. Why no category for metrosexual? Butch or femme? LUG? Bi-curious? Or the cutting-edge technosexual?
I’ve never heard of a sexual orientation survey in U.S. schools. I think “mind your own business” still has some currency here.
