    But Navy, slapping someone is also an assault.

    Did you notice that the kids were in a mall rather than a school?

    It's Utah Valley University in Orem, UT. I used to live right across the street. It does look like a mall.

    I'd say that depends on who is doing the touching, speaking or whatever. I've seen several women go from sweetheart to stone cold bitch just by meeting an ignorant prick.

    But in all fairness I can see, by your posts, how you'd hold your opinion- most women must seem like bitches to you...

    Hold on to TGND, she is literally one in a million....

Maybe he was disruptive in class in a sweet and affectionate way (hitting on girls (his own age) or chatting with his teammates when he should have been sitting quietly with his mouth shut). I'm just spit balling but there are literally any number of infractions that could have resulted in him being disciplined that would lead one to question his sweetness toward or affection for other people. Of course, the kid could also be a raging, violent, misogynistic asshole, or anywhere in between - we just don't know.
    The very fact he has been disciplined and suspended for lengthy intervals,(whatever that is), is all we need to know. Doesn't matter what the other suspensions were for. Does it matter what other crimes a defendant was convicted of in the three strikes rule?

    Fact is he has had multiple suspensions and should have known better. I think any flat footed person would see a hug from behind with his face buried in her neck- her reaction of a firm push-off was not a friendly hug. Who does that to an adult teacher???!!!!

    I'd opine 99% of all sexual harassment can have defenders claiming just that, "Oh he is just REAL affectionate, he constantly pins girls against the lockers to give them hugs to 'brighten' their day!"

    If we are spinning tales then about dumb jocks then perhaps he thinks because he is a jock he can get away with crap the rest of us mortals can't.

    But bottom line is after multiple suspensions it is silly to think he can just continue on without escalating consequences.

    The circumstances between the two are completely different. It doesn't even make sense to compare the two.

    Just joking. Didn't mean for it to be taken seriously.

    students who believe it is OK to approach a female teacher from behind and embrace her - against her previously expressed wishes

    students who insist on expressing their fondness for an authority figure physically, despite having been told not to do so

    there is legitimate reason to fear those students, because if they are willing to defy the expressed rules with such an authority figure, what is going to prevent them from similarly being fresh with female peers who do not want that embrace or young girls who should not be subjected to such harassment. this fellow does not accept that when a female says "NO" that it is not acceptable to be forward. he, and others like him, need to learn that lesson; otherwise he remains a menace to female society
