Through a series of very dumb ideas and unfortunate misunderstandings, a birthday party held at a kindergarten in the Taiwanese city of Zhanghua turned into a prepubescent scandal last week when teachers posted photos online of kids engaging in some rather intimate forms of play-time.
One Facebook photo shows two boys licking cream off a girl’s cheeks, while another shows a boy and girl kissing while passing a cherry around:
And there are a whole lot more just like those:
It is likely that the innocent kids had no clue about the gravity of their actions, and the fact that the teacher encouraged it, allowed it to happen and then posted the pics to Facebook has naturally angered many parents. The kindergarten has since apologized for the incident.
Bizarrely enough, an employee of the school, surnamed Cai, appeared to try to play off the incident as an impromptu class to “educate” children on proper sexuality education, TVBS News reports. Sounds like President-elect Tsai Ying-wen has her work cut out for her.
Watch a Taiwanese report on the scandal below:
The incident is reminiscent of one last year in Henan, where a kindergarten teacher made all her boy students pose naked for pictures, which she later uploaded to her Wechat Moments.
