‘Democratic’ School Takes Students On This Shocking Field Trip; Parents LIVID

School administrator takes students on field trip to adult toy store.

Starri Hedges, executive director of Gaia Democratic School in Minneapolis, Minn., and the school’s board members stand by their decision that a recent field trip Hedges and students from the school took was in fact educational.

In a statement posted on the school’s website, they state: “Gaia Democratic School’s board of directors stands behind the premise of the field trip; we view it as a legitimate learning experience that relates directly to topics covered during our year-long Sexual Health class. Our in-class discussions paved the way to a store visit and the participants communicated to us that the trip was a positive educational experience. No student was required to attend.”

The field trip was to an adult toy store in Minneapolis called Smitten Kitten. Hedges took roughly a dozen students ranging from middle school to high school age. However, parents reportedly did not receive notice of the field trip before it took place. One parent, Lynn Floyd, is not satisfied with the school’s explanation of and justification for the trip. He filed a police report and has removed all three of his children from the school. Two of his children did attend the field trip. The younger of the two who attended is 11 years old.


In an interview on the FreeThinking Forum, Hedges discusses the ideas and principles behind the school, and the way the school views education. Being a child of the democratic school system herself, she believes in the idea of free-thinking learning in a democratic environment. During the interview, she stated: “The more you study the educational system in the United States, and the history of it, the more you will find that many things that we are still practicing in our schools today are really out of date, and are really much more about creating an obedient person, than about learning on a deep level.”

Hedges stated in her interview with the Minneapolis Star Tribune: “It was certainly the first time we have taken that kind of field trip and it will probably be our last, which I feel bad [about] because the kids had so much fun.”

My thought:  when your goal is to educate everyone on intimacy - there is no intimacy involved in your own heart - otherwise, you wouldn't be able to expose others to a clinical alternative.  Sad for the educators/board that they are so out of love with their own identities' existences that they have no idea of what intimacy means anymore.

Well you get what you ask for, a parent that would send a child to a school like this is so far beyond any person with a modicum intelligence would know that this is completely unacceptable !  and who ever came up this atrocity should be fired and put in jail, if this is not the biggest testament that Liberal Left have gone completely mad ! and will do anything to poison the mind's of our children, this is nothing more then steeling the innocence of these young people and must be stopped !  

The question is the store for a least 18 years or older. If so a law was clearly broken as we know one of the children take to this store was only 11. If the City code says no one under 18 should be sexually provocative written, photographic, printed, sound or publish materials harmful to minor. This clear is and has now tainted this individuals thinking about sex and how it was presented to them. NOT A GOOD THING, the school should be closed down!!!

If anyone of them would have been my son or daughter I would wait for that teacher after school follow her or him and once we were in an area no body was around I would kick the living shit out of them.That teacher would be lucky if he /she could ever walk again and I'd find the biggest dildo and stick it whre the sun don't shine.I am sick of these progressives. But you parents that sit on your hands and do nothing just goes to show me this country is full of cowards

Im with you Robert....Then Id jerk all of my kids outa that liberal Poophole and sue the heck out them!!!!

*Edited Offensive Word, Please Re-Read the Members Rules*

This borders on pedophilia and should be considered criminal LUDE conduct with a minor... not a field trip.

If I would have taken an 11 year old into a Porn Shop I would have been arrested.  The same should go for Hedges.  

Then old Starri should be fired & her teaching license revoked.   She sounds more like a Pedophile than a teacher.

The School Board should be fired & replaced, as well as the Principal and anyone & everyone who approved this PORN field trip.    Parents need to find out what else old Starri was teaching their children!    I bet they will be shocked!

Taking children into a sex toy shop... is LUDE CONDUCT WITH A MINOR... it is a criminal act and needs to be prosecuted fully... time for a Parent or a Parent organization in the school area to call the local prosecutor and file a complaint.

I think parents ought to start going after the teachers and principals PERSONALLY, and not just suing the school or the board.  If these people have to start fearing they'll lose their  livelihood and savings and serve prison time, and there's nobody to cover their ass, they'll be less likely to mess with our kids...  They need to be held PERSONALLY accountable.

Criminal prosecution should be forthcoming in this incident... Parents of the involved children need to all show up at the local prosecutors office demanding the teachers and principal be charged with 'lude conduct with a minor' and 'child endangerment or abuse'.

Eggzactly......Thats what Id do.....Id sue school and the sicko teacher.....

I have to agree 100%. What is next, gay bar, horehouse?

Racism -> Emergency Medical Doctor Rails Against Whites: “White People Can Be Exhausting” – ‘Racism Towards Whites Doesn’t Exist’ 

 Esther Choo (pictured above), an emergency medical doctor and professor in Oregon, took to Twitter to rail against white people and after getting called out for her racism, she asserted that it’s impossible to be racist towards whites.

According to Choo’s bio, she’s an emergency physician and associate professor at the Oregon Health & Science University.

Choo is the daughter of Korean immigrants and uses social media to talk about racism and sexism in healthcare, according to her bio.

“White people can be exhausting. Just an observation,” Choo said in a tweet on Friday.

When she received backlash for her racist tweet, Choo continued to taunt and disparage whites.

“Observation #2: white people are going to prove my point on this very thread,” Choo said responding to the backlash.

She also bragged that Twitter took her side when people reported her tweet.

“Observation #3: when people try to convince Twitter that white people are experiencing reverse racism, Twitter understands that is not a thing.”

Twitter may not have a problem with racism against white people, but what about the medical community?

Dr. Choo received huge backlash on Twitter.

Joe Biggs   @Rambobiggs

This is coming from an Emergency Medicine Physician who is considered a "leader" in her field. She's scheduled to be a speaker at the American College of Emergency Physicians in October. She runs a website called FeminEM prompting Feminist causes in EM and a racist.

Pretty racist statement, TBH.

Protected groups being immune to being called out for blatant bigotry is exhausting, just an observation.

Replace “white” with any other race, and Dr. Choo would be out of a job.

Update: Dr. Choo deleted her racist tweets and set her Twitter account to “private” after she received backlash from hundreds of people.
