I heard about this story on The View one morning last week and couldn’t believe it and then I was surfing around and found it again and thought, what the hell. If you haven’t heard about this you can read it and there’s also a video.
I personally find this whole thing horrific. This woman did everything by the book. She’d been trying to get this thing resolved for months. She went and had meetings and set up sexual harassment and bullying workshops and still couldn’t get this thing resolved.
Her daughters sweat pants got pulled down to her ankles in gym class. By a boy who does this EVERYDAY to kids. He sometimes does it to other boys. This little girl kind of squealed and all her friends gathered around her and she got her pants pulled back up.
Nothing was done about it. So she gathered up a group of supporters and went to a school board meeting. At this meeting, the school superintendent asked her if her daughter had been wearing a thong. He said he had to know what body parts were exposed. Can you even believe that? So the mother lost it and cursed the guy out. I can honestly tell you that I may have done the same thing. What does it matter what she had on under her sweats? Boxer shorts, long johns or granny panties. It makes no difference. You don’t lay your hands on other people NOR do you pull down their pants. It had gone on for a LONG TIME.
Now this mother faces disorderly conduct and could pay a hefty fine. Do you think this is right? I know life isn’t fair so I won’t say I think it’s unfair but man, I can’t stand bullying and by asking that question, it makes it appear that this little girl somehow asked for it “if” she had been wearing a thong.
