Back to school gifts

A bizarre item this morning.


Penis masks! How creative! But…back to school gifts?

No no, that’s not what they meant, they said.

Whatever. I became curious about who and what “esteem acet UK” even is, so I looked for more. Their Twitter profile says:

We deliver relationships and sex education training, equipping youth workers, teachers and parents to talk to young people about relationships and sex.

What does that mean? Who are they? What is their expertise? So I clicked on the link, and then the About page. You’ll never guess.

acet UK is a Christian charity with a mission to equip and inspire individuals, schools, churches and organisations, in the UK and internationally, to transform culture by promoting healthy self-esteem, positive relationships and good sexual health.

A Christian charity!

I don’t understand how any of this works. Can random groups “equip and inspire” schools just by offering? Is this just another “Catholic League” aka one person and a laptop trying to sound important? It certainly could be – an obscure Twitter account and a website don’t necessarily add up to a real organization really shoving its way into schools to “equip and inspire” them for the greater glory of Jesus and penis masks. But who knows, maybe there are schools that take them seriously and pay them for inspiration?
