The New York Times, a “woke” newspaper, has come to the defense of a radical feminist and social justice warrior who teaches “pornography literacy classes” to little children.

Justine Ang Fonte, who describes herself on LinkedIn as an “intersectional health educator fighting for a more sex-positive world,” provoked outrage among parents of children at an elite Manhattan private school when the New York Post revealed that she was teaching their kids about masturbation and porn.

The lessons on porn reportedly included an overview of porn genres, including “incest-themed,” “barely legal,” “kink” and “BDSM,” and a look at the most searched pornographic terms of 2019, including “creampie,” “anal,” “gangbang” and “stepmom.”

The lesson on masturbation, meanwhile, included a disturbing cartoon showing little children talking among themselves about “touching themselves” for pleasure.

The outrage that ensued following the publication of the Post’s report led to Fonte resigning in disgrace early last month.

Weeks later, the Times is now trying to rehabilitate her career.

“Multiple sex educators interviewed for this article said there was nothing inappropriate about her classes there or at Columbia. All of it was in line with current National Sex Education Standards and the World Health Organization’s International Technical Guidance on Sexuality Education,” the paper wrote Wednesday.

“The national standards are also used in public schools in New York City, where students in grades 6 through 12 take lessons on sexuality as part of their health education. Parents can opt out of certain aspects of the program,” the paper added.

The Times neglected to mention that the World Health Organization is no longer considered a credible organization.

The paper also failed to mention Fonte’s lessons about porn genres and pornographic terms. It did however address her masturbation video.

“The material for her first-grade class never used the term ‘masturbation,’ Ms. Fonte said recently. The lesson was about private parts being private and included a cartoon in which two characters use anatomically correct names for their genitals and say that sometimes it feels good to touch them,” the paper defensively wrote.

After publishing the piece, the Times tweeted the story and claimed that “pornography literacy classes … teach students how to critically assess what they see on the screen.”

This tweet was quickly ratioed by critics, including parents, asking “what were they thinking.”


A number of prominent conservative blue checkmarks on Twitter also slammed the piece, including Live Action founder Lila Rose and former Trump administration speechwriter Billy Gribbin.


The Times’ rush to defend Fonte is, it would appear, yet another example of elite left-wing discourse and desires not even closely matching the discourse and desires of everyday Americans.

It’s a dichotomy increasingly seen in every single issue. The elites say “defund the police,” but the working class votes for a former cop. The elites say “teach the kids masturbation,” but the working class drives the teacher out of school.
