BELLINGHAM, WA- You simply cannot make this stuff up.
According to the Daily Mail, the director of a school board in Bellingham, Washington is hosting sexual education classes at her sex shop called the oddly-named Wink Wink Boutique. Guess the “wink-wink” means “don’t tell the cops that we’re a bunch of sexual deviates committing child abuse on minors.”
The school board director, an unhinged woman named Jenn Mason is hosting the sex education classes at her shop, with classes broken down by age with children aged between nine and twelve in one class and children thirteen to seventeen in another.
Some of the topics of discussion include “sexual anatomy for pleasure and reproduction” and “safer sex practices for all kinds of sexual activities.”
Now of course one must understand that only days removed from “pride” month, the “boutique” offered all manner of sexually depraved courses, and Mason didn’t disappoint. Last month the den of depravity hosted a Queer youth Open Mic Night, which gave children between “0-18” a chance to share poetry and songs.
The sex education classes are being offered in August during what is called the “Uncringe Academy.” Not for nothing, but it all sounds pretty “cringy” to us. The classes come at a cost of $50 which is probably about $49.99 too high, however scholarships are apparently available.
The event page explains the classes are intended to be “honest, supportive, and inclusive sex education classes to help young people of all genders and sexual identities understand this important part of their life.”
The website continues that the classes are to provide “sex education that’s based in empowerment and information rather than shame, fear and judgment.”
“We use an accepting, informing, and affirming framework,” the site says. “Our focus is helping young people feel comfortable around these topics so that they can advocate for their own bodies, health, and well-being.”
Quite understandably, Mason, who many believe shouldn’t be within 100 miles of children, is being referred to as a “child groomer” (if the shoe fits) as well as a “deviant” for the events. The Daily Mail highlights the fact that the classes are being held in her capacity as a store owner and not as the director of the school board.
Fair enough, but would you have had Ted Bundy acting as an advisor for a sorority or had Michael Jackson working as a counselor at a boy’s day camp?
Mason as expected has defended the upcoming classes.
In an interview with Jason Rantz of KTTH-Radio Seattle, Mason described the courses as “an introduction to topics related to how puberty works, consent and personal boundaries, defining ‘sex’ and discussing why people may or may not choose to engage in sexual activities.”
“This course includes understanding the basics of sexual anatomy, including the names and function of the body parts related to reproduction and pleasure,” she said. “We also cover the basics of biological sex, gender expression, and sexual orientation.”
Mason also explained that “safe sex practices” is “not generally covered as a main topic in this course, except as it relates to consent, communication, and safety.”
She also claims that sex has “no set” definition, and different people can define it in different ways.
“While some people think of sex as only being when a penis goes in a vagina, sex can really be any activity that a person does with themselves or others to become aroused,” explaining further that there’s no such thing as “real sex.”
Mason is apparently self taught, as she has no specific training in the ways of adolescent sexuality, however she apparently worked for a number of years at a rape crisis center, where she “developed, oversaw and delivered ‘consent and healthy relationships workshops’ to thousands of middle age and high school students,” the Mail said.
She is apparently also a “certified sex educator” through the American College of Sexologists, a certified sex coach through the Sexology Institute, and a certified sexual assault victim advocate.
During last month’s queer open mic night, the event was described as a celebration of “youth pride by holding a space and stage for young queer voices in the community.” Remember when calling someone a “queer” was hate speech? Not anymore apparently.
Mason explained that the open mic event would be “physically separated” from the sex toys in the shop, while also confirming the store doesn’t sell pornography or age-restricted items.
She also told Fox News that since the event was being held at a private business, those who were uncomfortable with the location could make the decision not to attend.
On its website in the “About” section, the boutique is described as a “sex shop delighting in expertly curated sex and body products, lingerie and books.”
“We believe that normalizing, accepting, and affirming all bodies, identities, and gender experiences is an inherently political act. Pleasure is our revolution,” it reads.
The site also explains the store is not age restricted, noting: “Many young people feel like they can’t ask questions about sex.
“Everyone eventually learns about sex from somewhere (or someone); unfortunately, what they often get is inaccurate, unhealthy, and dangerous information that puts them at risk.
‘We believe that all people deserve to have a place where they can ask questions in a nonjudgmental setting and get answers from sexuality educators that have their well-being in mind.”
The store emphasizes however that although it is “open to all ages doesn’t mean young children are shopping with us.
“Consider that just because Home Depot is all-ages, 5-year-olds aren’t showing up in droves to buy chainsaws, just because they can.”
As expected, a number of parents are taking Mason to the cleaners, especially given her role with the school board.
One Twitter user said:
“Nine year olds don’t need to be associated with a sex shop for one, at all, let alone how to’s/what/why sex is pleasurable.”
Another user compared Mason to a “child predator and groomer who should have no [position of] authority over children.”
Mason has been a member of the Bellingham school board since 2017.
For one of our prior reports about the number of teachers arrested for the “grooming” of children, we invite you to:
AMERICA — As parents worry about what schools are teaching their children, another aspect to reflect on is whether they are physically safe from teachers, teaching aides and substitutes.
At least 135 teachers, teachers’ aides and substitutes have been arrested so far this year on child sex-related crimes in the U.S., ranging from child pornography to raping students.

A Twitter account, @DaltonReport, has maintained a list of pedophile educators that suggests the number could be much higher.
According to a FOX News report, statistics show that since the beginning of the year, there has been an average of about one sex-crime suspect arrested each day:
“An analysis conducted by Fox News Digital looked at local news stories week by week featuring arrests of teachers and teachers’ aides on child sex-related crimes in school districts across the country.
“Arrests that weren’t publicized were not counted in the analysis, meaning the true number may well be higher.

“The analysis found that at least 135 teachers and teachers’ aides have been arrested in 41 states between January 1 and May 13, which works out to about an arrest a day on average.
“The vast majority of the arrested educators were men.
“Of the 135 arrests, at least 102, or 76%, involved alleged crimes against students.
“The 135 educators included 117 teachers, 11 teachers’ aides and seven substitute teachers.”

According to the same FOX report, there were several disturbing examples of alleged crimes committed by the arrestees:
“On April 11, police in California charged Anthony James Phillips, a 61-year-old former teacher at Cupertino Middle School in Sunnyvale, with aggravated sexual assault of a child, forcible penetration with a foreign object, and forcible penetration with a foreign object upon a child.
“Phillips is accused of raping a student in 2009 when he was still a teacher at Cupertino.

“Doty is accused of repeatedly raping a 16-year-old female student and threatening to kill her. He is scheduled to stand trial in January 2023.
“Danielle Fischer, a 29-year-old former substitute teacher in the Roxana and Alton school districts, was charged with criminal sexual assault and aggravated criminal sexual abuse on Feb. 4.
“Fischer is accused of sexually assaulting two teenage male students at her home in Edwardsville during summer break last year. A Madison County grand jury later added child pornography to the charges.”
In a statement, Erika Sanzi, director of outreach for Parents Defending Education, told Fox News Digital that the issue of teacher sex crimes against students needs to be better addressed by the federal government.
Sanzi cited the outdated Department of Education’s 2004 report, which claimed that nearly 9.6% of students are targets of educator sexual misconduct sometime during their school career and noted:
“Educator sexual abuse is a major problem that largely gets ignored because it’s so uncomfortable to talk about. While a very small fraction of educators and school employees prey on the children in their care, one bad actor can do damage to many students.

“The last federally commissioned study on the issue was in 2004, pre-smart phone and those who study the issue closely say that the problem has been exacerbated by the ease of communication that a smart phone provides.
I honestly think we should fire any teacher who speaks about sexual identity to our children. Straight or not, kids do not deserve to be indoctrinated by pedophiles and weirdos. Instead, they should be prioritizing basic education they USED to teach 🤦♂️#libsoftiktok #education pic.twitter.com/bmlykua7QI

“We need to get much more honest about the problem, study it again and ensure that we have policies and laws in place that protect children.
“It is currently legal in Massachusetts and Rhode Island for teachers and other adults in positions of authority to have sexual relationships with students once they turn 14. After a 5-year effort, RI finally appears poised to change that this year.”

There is a bipartisan bill in Rhode Island that would make it a crime for a teacher or person of authority to have sexual contact with someone under the age of 18, FOX News reported.
Jeez… this person should be as far from safeguarding as possible. Who the hell appointed her and have they had their hard drive checked?

Christopher Rufo, a senior fellow at the Manhattan Institute, said the lack of research on teacher sex crimes against students is a “travesty.”
Stands to reason that President Pedophile @JoeBiden and his administration @DNC ran by other pedophiles have been grooming your kids for sex. https://t.co/cHczN4tNmY
— Mo Gulett (@realMoGulett) May 20, 2022
In a statement to FOX News Digital, Rufo suggested the federal government needs to research the issue and release timely reports about it so that there is an updated way to address and stop the sex crimes against students:
“The public school system has a serious child sex abuse problem. The last significant federal study on this topic, which was conducted by the Department of Education in 2004, suggested that millions of American schoolchildren are victims of teacher sexual misconduct in each generation of K-12 students—and there hasn’t been any significant research since then.
its nothing but porno. America needs to stand as one and show up by the tens of thousands and protest this filth being taught to babies, it's so disgusting, I've got to go take a blood pressure pill, this is the lowest scummiest trash….this teachers are a bunch of pedophiles.. https://t.co/OAR8yLL86h

“This is a travesty. Parents deserve to know exactly what’s happening in the public school system and deserve to have tools for protecting their children from abuse.
“Congress should immediately fund a $25 million research program into child sexual abuse in public schools and provide complete transparency for parents. The first duty of public schools is to keep kids safe—and, tragically, that’s not happening in far too many cases.”
