In May, parents of students at the elite Columbia Grammar and Preparatory School in Manhattan were enraged at a porn literacy workshop held for the pupils. Now, it's been revealed that the teacher who held the workshop had also shown sex education videos to her first grade students from another private school in New York City last year.

Identified as Justine Ang Fonte, the teacher is under fire after parents of the school told the New York Post about a sex education video their wards were shown that, they alleged, included the topic of masturbation. The video is reportedly part of a sex education series for children called AMAZE and shows a cartoon boy ask about erections among other topics.

Who is Justine Ang Fonte?

The health and wellness teacher at the Dalton School has been slammed by parents of the school for showing their kids videos on sex education, gender identity, and consent. The videos are said to instruct children that their parents and grandparents shouldn't touch them without their permission. Outraged parents complained to school administrators about the video and were told they misinterpreted the lessons. Fonte also maintains in her statement to the outraged parents that she does not use the word "masturbation."

The educator was also in the limelight earlier this month, after she held a workshop on porn literacy at another elite private school in Manhattan, which had formerly been attended by Barron Trump. The $47,000-a-year private school allegedly forced their students to attend the compulsory workshops on pornography covering lessons on incest roleplay and also OnlyFans. The Fonte-led workshop entitled 'Pornography Literacy: An intersectional focus on mainstream porn' faced major backlash after parents of attending students who were all 16 and 17 years old saw the graphic and explicit lecture on a Zoom call.

Fonte's website describes her with the degrees M.Ed and MPH, detailing the educators holds a Bachelor's in Psychology and two Master's, one in Education in Teaching and another in Public Health in Sexuality. On her LinkedIn profile, Fonte writes in her bio: "Filipina. Feminist. Foodie. Doing my part as a global citizen to nuture self-reliant students, educate sex-positivity, and advocate sustainable social justice programs through education and health. And eating deliciously fuels these passions." Fonte is also the founder of Justin Fonte Consulting - a platform for "Intersection Health Education." 

Video on erections shown to first-graders

In the videos shown by Fonte to her students, a cartoon boy can be seen asking, "Hey, how come sometimes my penis gets big" and points in the air. To that, a cartoon adult responds "That's called an erection." The boy then adds, "Sometimes I touch my penis because it feels good." Another cartoon girl chimes in "Sometimes, when I'm in my bath or when Mom puts me to bed, I like to touch my vulva too."

The adult cartoon character then intimates the little girl, "You have a clitoris there, Kayla, that probably feels good to touch the same way Keith's penis feels good when he touches it." She then adds: "Have you ever noticed that older kids and grown-ups don't touch their private parts in public? It's okay to touch yourself and see how different body parts feel - but it's best to only do it in private."

'Pure indoctrination'

These videos were part of a series created by the Washington DC-based nonprofit Advocates for Youth and the organization's Answer and Youth Tech Health. Based on YouTube statistics, the channel's videos have been viewed 619,938 times so far. According to anonymous Dalton School parents the video was "quietly removed from the curriculum," reported the New York Post. The outlet also added that hedgefund billionaire Bill Ackman's Pershing Square Foundation funds Fonte's work through a $450,000 donation made to the school. His wife is also on the school's board of trustees.

"I'm paying $50,000 to these a**holes to tell my kid not to let her grandfather hug her when he sees her?" an anonymous parent was allegedly told by another. "Kids have no less than five classes on gender identity – this is pure indoctrination. This person should absolutely not be teaching children," complained another. 

The publication also noted that one mother said, "Ironically, she teaches kids about 'consent' yet she has never gotten consent from parents about the sexually explicit, and age inappropriate material about transgender to first graders." Slamming the school administration further, she claimed parents were "gaslit" into thinking they were "confused" by the lessons. "We are in fact just seeing very clearly for the first time what a 'progressive' education really means at Dalton," the mother said.
