I believe, from the article, that a second part of the "problem" was that she omitted that tidbit on her employment application. Not all companies run background checks. Any company that doesn't, at the very least, get credible answers about a gap in employment history is nutz.

    I'm not going to continue arguing this point. It's done and over . . . unless the union steps in. The gal lost her job. I think she should have. You, of course, can believe whatever you'd like.

    I'm going to go out on a limb here and suggest that if there was an allegation that a school teacher was previously a porn star that there would be a few questions asked. I'm also fairly certain that a teacher who was accused of being a porn star would be able to prove those allegations false rather quickly... and would WANT to do so very quickly. I'm also fairly certain that any concerned parents would be informed of the truth.

    But this is all real world stuff, here. In fantasy land these situations don't really matter because a career in porn has equal merits to a career in pretty much anything else.

    No, sorry. It doesn't have anywhere near "equal merits." Those who would like to destroy our social mores may wish to believe that it does. But, as yet, it does not.

    For argument's sake, let's say 'yes'. Then what.
    I would admire your commitment to honesty, but think you are insane.

    Schools are required to do background checks so thats kind of moot here.

    The appeals process isn't done. She can still file for another appeal. But if you're done then so be it. Tis your perogative.

    I want to destroy those social mores that are based on bigotry and an irrational fear of unconventional sexuality.

    I said "in fantasy land" it has equal merits but not in the real world which you and I live in.

    I'll be the one to teach my kids about "unconventional sexuality", if you don't mind...
