‘Build ab *** h’: Religious school told boys to rate girls on ‘looks and virginity’ in bizarre lesson that saw being ‘caring and generous’ ranked low
- Boys at prestigious school said to award points for what they look for in a girl
- Grade 10 students were asked to award 25 points based on traits such as popularity
- This category was worth six points but only one point accumulated for sincerity
- Some of the male students who participated in the activity called it “build ab *** h”
Boys in a religious school were asked to award points for the qualities they look for in a girl in a classroom activity that students mockingly described as “building ab *** h.”
Grade 10 students at St Luke’s Grammar School on Sydney’s North Beaches were asked to award 25 points by choosing categories such as popularity, loyalty and attractiveness to build their ideal wife.
While these categories were worth six points each, traits such as generosity and “caring for the world” were only worth one.
Some of the male students who participated in the lesson called the grading activity “build ab *** h”, The Sydney Morning Herald reported.
Grade 10 students at a prestigious religious school on Sydney’s North Beaches were asked to award points for the qualities they look for in a girl during an in-class lesson
HOW TENTH-GRADE STUDENTS WERE ASKED TO BUILD THEIR IDEAL WOMEN
Six points: Popular, loyalty, good looking, strong Christian, trustworthy
Five points: sense of humor, wisdom, fitness
Four points: sporting prowess / sexiness, honesty, friendliness
Three points: “Good pedigree”, ambition, work ethic, the ability to embrace
Two points: height, academic success, social confidence
One point: Sincerity, sense of adventure, “concern for the world”, generosity
Students in the class could also spend five points to make their ideal woman “fit”, and four points to make them “sporty / sexy”.
Two points were awarded for their game to be socially strong or at the right height.
“All the girls were disgusted and really offended,” said one student.
Meanwhile, the 10th graders received a separate lesson in which they were told to protect their virginity until marriage and warned of Satan’s role in encouraging casual sex.
The school principal has since apologized and said the teacher who led the activity was “saddened” that it offended.
“This term, students examined the complex issues of consent and toxic masculinity and compared the negative images portrayed in society with God’s plan for strong and healthy relationships where people respect each other as equals,” he said. said St Luke’s manager Geoff Lancaster.
Categories that male students could choose from during the course at St Luke’s Grammar School to build their ideal wife included popularity, loyalty, and attractiveness.
In a public statement, he admitted the activity was a “good example of how the best of intentions can go horribly wrong.”
He said a teacher was voluntarily removed from his post while the lesson was under investigation.
