    Beyond belief, if true. Oh, wait -- this is Tennessee, where Republicans passed a State law making it illegal to speak the word "gay" in schools. I guess that extends to the written word, too. icon_rolleyes.gif

    I'm going to say gay and then stick my penis inside these Tennessee lawmakers' ears so they can build a quick and painful association with the word.

    Don't bother -- half of them would probably like it.

    But at least they could no longer exclaim "Oh my virgin ears!" icon_wink.gif

    Sad. The principal, the one who should lead by example and be a role model, is a bully himself.

    This doesn't surprise me. Surprise he didn't try and beat the gay out of him.

    So after this and reading about the gay guys who got attacked at church in Tennessee, does that officially make Tennessee the least gay friendly state?

    I guess it takes hearing something like this to appreciate the fact that even if I was bullied and called "gay", "nerd" or "fag" in middle school, at least the establishment and members of authority were not doing it. Jeez

    Hopefully, the principal will get reprimanded and even suspended....but I doubt it.

    That's ridiculous.. he asshole should be fired. What he did was absolutely unprofessional. I hope the student considers legal action.

    For god sakes, these anti-gay Sons'a bitches need to be sterilized because producing more of them will not well serve the world... I think the student should sue for punative damages.. They want to act like assholes, make'em pay. Then maybe they'll pay attention.

    That story is so outrageous and I beginning to doubt its truth. If that were true, the principal should be arrested for assault.... or he should be fired.... that is outrageous. If that were my son, I cannot conceive of how much I would have a conniption fit.

    If this were my kid, I would call my lawyer and tell him to meet me at the courthouse, then go beat the living crap out of this principal.

    Anybody still think we need to reason with the bullies and try to change them?

    Hmmm.

    Something seems a little fishy with this story.... but if it is true, that principal ought to be in jail awaiting arraignment or bail.

    Remember. You're not allowed to have children. You're a second class citizen.


    Oops. I forgot for a minute. icon_cool.gif

    What a failure of a human being.

    I feel shame for him.

    Yeah, the kid should have punched the principle in the face, so he could get arrested and have a criminal record for the rest of his life. That would really show that bully. icon_rolleyes.gif

    Hey, here's the Principal's email (the one who assaulted the student):

    Sequoyah High School
    3128 Hwy. 411
    Madisonville, TN 37354

    Maurice Moser, Principal

    moserm@monroe.k12.tn.us

    I encourage one and all to email him and tell him what you think of assaulting minors who dare to think for themselves and stand up for minorities.

    BTW, I taught for a while at the college level, and assaulting a student was the one sure way to be instantly fired. I hope this guy loses his job -- at the least.

    Everybody needs an iPhone that's has an app that
    1. allows them to turn it on with a simple gesture (e.g. shaking the iPhone in your pocket)
    2. streams audio (and video if light was detected, i.e. outside a pocket) to a massive hard drive somewhere safe, or a cloud service

    Nobody will ever lack evidence in a court of law from then on. No more he said/she said.

    The student should have kicked the principle's ass. Yeah he woulda got in trouble, but the media coverage would have gotten him out of it.

    I think it's safe to say he's way past "bitter" if he's assaulting the students of his own school.

    Thanks for the email. Sending him a lovely little letter.
