Netflix just threw some major shade at the Ontario government's sex ed curriculum

Netflix has thrown some shade at Doug Ford’s government.

As the Ontario government continues to work on the Education Ministry’s decisions for the 2019-2020 school year, teachers in the province were advised to use a revised interim curriculum, which will include a health and physical education curriculum used from 1995 to 2014.

Ford also issued a warning to teachers considering whether to teach the current sex-ed curriculum introduced by former premier Kathleen Wynne in 2015, saying the province “will act” if a teacher fails to do their job.

The modernized sex-ed program, which has been referred to as “controversial,” is opposed by social conservatives, covers topics like sexual orientation, same-sex relationships, sexting, and consent.

“We expect our teachers, principals, and school board officials to fulfil their obligations to parents and children when it comes to what our students learn in the classroom,” Ford said.

“We will not tolerate anybody using our children as pawns for grandstanding and political games. And, make no mistake, if we find somebody failing to do their job, we will act.”

And this December, Netflix brought back a classic, and decided to let Canadians know in the best way possible.

“Since the Ontario sex-ed curriculum has gone back in time, you can ‘learn’ about sex the way teens in the ’90s did: all the American Pie movies are now on Netflix,” they tweeted.

And if all else fails, remember, this one time, at band camp…
