Allison Wint was a substitute art teacher at Harper Creek Middle School in Michigan up until she recently taught a lesson on George O'Keeffe to an eighth-grade class, WMMT reported. Anyone who has seen some of O'Keeffe's more famous works will immediately recognize O'Keeffe's unique and vaginal take on flowers.
O'Keeffe (which conveniently rhymes with queef) and vagina go hand-in-hand, so of course Wint dropped the v-word a few times.
She said vagina "maybe 10 times" during the lesson, Wint told the Detroit Free Press. “But it was never in a vulgar capacity.”
Nonetheless, Wint was reprimanded after the school caught wind of the dangers that were happening in the classroom. Wint's lesson went against school policy, which demands that teachers receive approval before touching upon the terrifying topic of reproductive health.
Another stipulation to this policy is that parents must be notified of the impending lesson, and can remove their kids from the class.
Wint wasn't aware of this old-fashioned rule, as she explained to school administration. Nonetheless, she was canned.
“I thought if I used a euphemism, that would make it into a joke,” she told WMMT. “And I don’t think that’s a word you should be afraid of.”
Wint said she "harbor[s] no ill will against" the school, but Facebook commenters do.
In sum, vagina.
