What the F---?
13 March 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode is about sex education; the character of Mrs. Garrett teaches a sex education class (without actually talking about sex) to 11-16 year old girls. Molly hits puberty, which coincidentally, aligns with Mrs. Garrett having a Sex Ed class. Blair just wants to experiment and have a good time, and the guy she's seeing, Steve, who is handsome but 'slow' (his word) actually wants a long term relationship with Blair. Giving her a necklace of his that is sentimental to him, and talking about being a coach at a high school etc.,

Basically what the episode is about, centering mainly on Steve and Blair.

My problem with the episode is Steve turns out to be the responsible guy until Blair says she just wants to have fun then Steve sexually assaults her (implies rape) but then it turns to Blair being in the custody of the police but not because of the assault but because apparently Steve kicked her out of the van and took off, and the police found Blair wandering around. At the end the moral was: Blair, her chirpy self, learned a life lesson, and that Mrs. Garrett was right about taking it slow.

What the f---? It shows Blair being sexually assaulted, she tells Steve to stop etc., and it cuts away, mentions the police but everything's alright, and Blair's okay and learns a life lesson for the better? Did they have a different ending that actually makes sense but cut it and made a happy ending where Blair was just left and wasn't actually assaulted? Then why not leave out the assault? Otherwise, it seems to say: girls deserve to be assaulted if they choose to "play the field". That's the moral I got. Unless Blair talks about it in another episode and she was pretending to be alright? I don't know...perhaps there's two versions to this episode, or Blair mentions it later in another episode but how the ending was cut, for me, and not actually talking about sex in the "Sex Ed" class; they talked about how some guys take advantage, how one should take it slow, and that playing it fast could have dire consequences and that's all fine; actually I agree with most of it but that's not Sex Education, that's Life Lessons which every episode of this show is. And that's fine. I have no problem with that but I dislike good characters being turned into bad guys, and even more: nothing being said about it afterward, as if it never actually happened or who cares if it did. Where's the morality in that?
