School Kids Shown Porn Instead of ‘Paddington’

Pre-adolescence is a formative period in one’s life. It really shapes a person, you know? Things stay with you.

Like, I remember when I was a boy we watched ‘Beethoven’. The film with the dog whose name is Beethoven. The dog doesn’t speak or engage in any tomfoolery, really. He just exists – your run-of-the-mill St Bernard running into everyday household mishaps. Nothing worth remembering.

It certainly wasn’t porn, in any case. Which seems obvious – Beethoven the dog is not porn. But for a class of nine-year-olds who sat down to watch a Paddington Bear movie last week, it was porn.

An Irish school’s Year 5 class gathered at assembly for their so-called ‘Golden Time’ to watch a screening of ‘Paddington’, the incredibly innocuous and overall savoury film featuring a bear in a little red hat. What they got instead was an eyeful of the hard stuff: boobs and faginas, burning themselves into the children’s nine-year-old prefrontal lobes.

“During Year 5’s Golden Time today, whilst watching ‘Paddington Bear’ we had a failure in our filters,” reads a letter to the parents from the school. “An inappropriate image came up. School has strict measures in place to prevent such images from appearing.”

Those ‘strict measures’ weren’t quite doing the trick, apparently. The children did not see Paddington. The children saw porn. Possibly Paddington porn – it has not been confirmed. But the school seems somewhat reluctant to apologise for the mishap; and the person responsible for the smutty mix-up seems somewhat reluctant to fess up.

“You do not expect to have it in a school; you try your best to prevent it at home,” said a parent. “We asked a member of staff if they had even watched the film beforehand and they had not.”

There’s no telling what lifelong implications this brief collision of porn and Paddington might have for these kids. Experts are becoming increasingly concerned about the amount of sex education that young people are getting from porn, and the effect that’s having on their overall sexual health. But if I for one had squizzed some bukkake when I was supposed to be squizzing some Beethoven, I can only imagine how that might’ve fucked up my sex life for good.
