Ontario’s new sex-ed curriculum was tossed for Ontario’s new anti-prostitution law. Now, newly elected mayor of an Ontario community is under fire after posting a message on a now-deleted Facebook group asking if a woman’s contraceptive, COVID-19, had changed her menstrual cycle.
“I don’t see anything wrong with asking ‘what’s going on with you?’ I’m a dad, and the maternal instinct takes over in a mom’s womb,” wrote Sandro Perri, the mayor of the southeastern Ontario town of Metcalfe. Perri’s co-policies commissioner, John Miller, added that a “clear and modern” curriculum is needed for “the protection of the most vulnerable.”
Perri’s message to a concerned mother:
“Hey Mayoral personality Sext Life Quiz? What’s going on with you?” wrote the mayor, whose username, and the posting, are still live. “Of all the pills and injections you received in the 1990s, none changed your menstrual cycle? If not, please explain why.”
As per PC Tree, which named Perri to his current position of mayor, he’s certainly not the first to use Facebook to sell casual sex, though — a 2009 Wayne County, Michigan driver’s license showed just that, for example.
Conducting casual sex apps and brothels isn’t illegal, but potentially causing dangerous situations behind closed doors can get you in trouble, just ask the residents of Renton, Washington. Per reports, Renton officials are investigating the town’s police chief, officer, and assistant chief after residents commented on a private Facebook message posted by one of the latter that asked them “to think about having sex with me tomorrow.”
Renton Police Chief John Elmore told the Seattle Times that “some of the feedback was hurtful” and “we are taking this very seriously.” Though he believes the message was sent in jest, Elmore is nonetheless moving to have all three officials’s and communications director’s security clearances suspended.
“[The chief, communications director, and assistant chief] will be on administrative leave until we can determine what the appropriate action will be,” Renton Police Department spokesperson Jeff Bobock told the AP.
The Washington city has reportedly had its own drug-related problems in the past, though none of them involved sexual activity. Like many others, Renton’s Police Department hasn’t implemented comprehensive sex-ed curriculum and instead relies on “parental guidance.” That was the case when two city councilors introduced a sex-ed resolution — submitted through a letter — in September; it didn’t receive enough support to move forward.
