Controversy on stick people

Officials at Pine Tree Elementary School in Monroe, New York say a hand-out of male and female stick figures in sexual positions spelling the alphabet was a mistake. A spelling curriculum was handed out with the acrobatic and suggestive figures. "The school received several calls of concern from parents who read it when they got home", the Middletown Times Herald-Record reported Tuesday.

Parents were assured the students had not seen the curriculum, and letters were sent out explaining the teacher who used the font "did not do so intentionally or maliciously," the report said.

Stick people are around us forever. For instance, this is how you spell YMCA with stick people - \o/ |o| /o_ /o\

But as far as the racy alphabets go, my heart is with the concerned parents. How dare the school institution try to pollute our children's minds? In order to show my solidarity with the parents, I have created the following banner for the concerned parents. Please feel free to use this in your demonstrations!
