Are Parents of High School Students Too Permissive About Parties?

The existence of a "Fantasy Slut League" at Piedmont High School has parents and students wondering who is to blame for a contest where varsity athletes collected points for sexual activity with female classmates. Could it happen here?

In a letter to parents Friday, Piedmont High School’s principal revealed the existence of a “Fantasy Slut League” where varsity athletes collected points for sexual activity with female classmates.

"It has been reported that students on some of our Varsity Teams have set up a "Fantasy Slut League" in which our female students (unbeknownst to most of them) are drafted as part of the league," Principal Rich Kitchens' letter said. "Male students earn points for documented engagement in sexual activities with female students."

The letter failed to specify what teams participated in the practice, only that “over the past 5-6 years such a league has existed in one form or another as part of ‘bonding’ for some Varsity Teams during their seasons of sport.”

Commenters on Piedmont Patch identifying themselves as current and former students argued that the sexual activity would have happened even if the league never existed. “What the Parents need to understand is that you should be blaming the parties your 15-18 year old daughters go to not the league,” wrote someone who claimed to be a recent alum of the school.

Other commenters were dismayed by the principal's claim that the participating students now know the league was wrong because the possibility of discipline may damage their prospects when it's time to apply for college. "It is incredibly SAD that PHS students are most concerned about how this might affect their college applications and NOT that they regret harming another child," wrote a mother of two children in Piedmont schools.

The principal’s letter noted that the idea behind the league “was not unique to Piedmont High School.” What do you think? Could something like the Fantasy Slut League be part of Lamorinda's high school athlete culture? Are parents and guardians too permissive when it comes to alcohol at high school parties?

This "conversation", this thread, consists of 10 pseudonyms and 2 possible actual nyms, plus a patch "editor". As the Doonesbury character said of the arrival of the first prostitutes in the virgin territory..."That's progress".

Nothing wrong with pseudonyms.

Who am I to disagree with the wisdom of that? I am not bleeping Jose! JD, my sometimes hero, on the other hand, was seeking something better, something better than bleeping Jose. When he failed, we all failed. You are not wrong for using a pseudonym. It just seems that we are all a little smaller for it.

I see people who post on here with their real names and their comments are some of the dumbest/worst. Using your real name does not correlate with quality, accuracy, or integrity.

The kids who talk about having sex are usually the ones not getting laid. I'll bet more than half of the alleged sexual encounters never occurred.
