A question about rape ends up on a biology homework assignment for ninth graders at a Houston-area high school.
Klein Independent School District confirms a teacher at Klein Collins High School sent home what the district calls an inappropriate homework question on a take-home assignment Friday.
The question was part of a biology DNA assignment and reads:
Suzy was assaulted in an alley and is a victim of rape. The police collected a sample of sperm that was left at the crime scene and now have three suspects in custody. Which of the suspects rape (sic) Suzy?
Parents along with students at Klein Collins ranged between surprised, confused and outraged.
Its upsetting and I know girls this age, just the thought ... they know that rape is forced non-consensual sex and that upsets them, said Cookie VonHaven, who has a daughter in 10th grade. Thats why I cant fathom a teacher putting that on a test.
Dana Duplantier has a ninth-grader but was unaware of whether he had received the assignment and question.
Wouldnt (the teacher) have to get that approved by the school board or teachers or something to put that in there, Duplantier asked.

According to European leaders, it is the culture of some people so just accept it and move on. If it isn’t a prosecuted crime, is it still rape?
what about male descendant/ancestor false positive? brother false positive?
Thank GOODNESS that this only happens in Blue States, or at least in blue cities.
I’d hate for this crap to spread to the ‘wonderful’ schools where I live.
Are there any alleys in Houston?
There aren’t any even downtown.
DNA tests don’t have positive/negative results. They have percentage matches. The level of match would indicate that a sample was from a relative and not the perpetrator. False positives are not a thing in DNA.
Contaminated samples or planted samples are though.
i have no solid idea but would this not also depend on the chromosome? eg, Y chromosome (versus all chromosomes)? (Everything I know about DNA I learned from TV crime drama series, so...)
And if the actor had a identical twin?
No, it’s way more sophisticated than that. Nowadays they are solving cold cases by finding familial matches (partial match indicating kinship) and then doing genealogies to locate family members that match age and location parameters, get dna on the sly from discarded drinks and then getting a warrant.
the White one
Klein is too far from Houston to be considered Houston. I’m quite sure it’s in a republican district.
If the three suspects were identical triplets ....
They now have a test for distinguishing between identical twins.
Then again, (A) rape kits are often left untested and (B) Houston’s crime lab was busted for faking and contaminating results.
>>Wouldnt (the teacher) have to get that approved by the school board or teachers or something to put that in there, Duplantier asked.
I feel the same way about gay-history, transgender/fluid grooming, sales pitches from Planned Parenthood, organized walkouts, Lenin’s Birthday, etc.
All three of them would be guilty if they were Duke lacrosse players, even if none of the DNA matched and they weren’t even there...
The psychological effects of rape are so severe it impacts the mechanism of the brain. It biochemically rewires the brain. Having a rape victim go through the rape experience with a biology assignment reinforces that trauma. For interjecting this issue in a biology class should merit legal consequences.
including relationship between jefferson family and hemings family:
“The results clearly show that the male-line descendants of Field Jefferson and Eston Hemings have identical Y-chromosome haplotypes (the particular combination of variants at defined loci on the chromosome). Scientists note that there is less than a 1 percent probability that this is due to chance. Thus the haplotype match is over one hundred times more likely when Jefferson and Eston Hemings are genetically related through the male line. This study by itself does not establish that Hemings’s father was Thomas Jefferson, only that Hemings’s father was a Jefferson.”
It is my informal understanding that current methods cannot distinguish between the alleged fathership of Thomas Jefferson versus the alleged fathership of various other Jefferson family males in relation to Sally Heming’s offspring, using the Y chromosome.
Which of the suspects rape (sic) Suzy?
= = =
That would be the male but not the two trans-males.
But we were not told if any suspects were trans-females.
Not enough information to solve.
