Suspended hug

A 10-year-old boy was suspended from school in a New York City suburb for asking his fifth-grade teacher for a hug. He had previous offenses for telling the teacher she’s “sexy,” a word his parents said the boy used as a synonym for “pretty,” and for allegedly staring at the teacher’s cleavage. Dad, a police officer, and Mom, a school secretary, say Aaron is not interested in girls. The boy has been transferred to a class with a male teacher and it looks like nobody’s going to sue.

My fifth-grade teacher, who was in her early 20s, had been a beauty queen in Florida. Most of the boys in the class spent the year staring at her cleavage. It kept them motivated. That was the pre-hug era, though.

    Ms. Holt’s cleavage is about the only thing I still remember from 5th.

  2. Got it bad, got it bad, got it bad, I’m hot for teacher.

    Another American tradition flushed down the toilet in the name of political correctness.

  3. I fell in love (lust?) with my 9th grade science teacher, Miss Niwa. She wore heels and I couldn’t take my eyes off her legs when she sat at her table and crossed them. I worshiped her and would have done anything she asked. Such feverish passion drove me to get the highest grade in the class. I’ve always looked with contempt upon feminism because I know that women have exercised incredible power over men since before Samson and Delilah, and it’s a power I gladly submit to.

    Camellia Houk!

  5. I’m trying to remember the name of the novel (was it Captains and Kings?) where the boy was sent home for doodling a nude drawing in class. The kid’s father storms into the classroom with his son in tow, and scolds the teacher for dressing like a tramp.

    If his parents really told him sexy means the same thing as pretty they need to have their heads examined with a stone chisel

    Yeah, Bada. That must be why women had to fight so hard to earn the right to vote, the right not to be treated as the defendant if they were raped, the right not to be beaten by their own husbands, the right to own their own property, etc. Obviously wise men instituted all those laws to balance off all that “sex power” we have. *eyeroll*
