    who the **** knows. seems like a lot of he said she said.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    It doesn't matter what we consider sexual harassment. It's what the school district considers sexual harassment, and obviously, and grown student, coming up behind a teacher and hugging her, even after she's warned him about it before, constitutes sexual harassment.

    Well my wife likes hugs but she didn't like what she saw of the teen's hug- from BEHIND, arm wrapped around the upper breast of that teacher. It seems quite apparent the teacher never saw it coming and didn't give her permission for it. She is seen pushing the teen away. (was on the news last night)

    The year long suspension isn't for just a hug. The teen has been suspended before, apparently long term and repeated. Most schools have stronger punishment for each additional infraction, sort of like the three strikes rule in the adult world.

    So at the very least he isn't a sweet affectionate boy who gave a single hug and is out for a year.

    A simple life lesson for us all- just like in here, if you have built up enough infraction points to see the line without standing up, perhaps you shouldn't call the mods names and question their actions upstairs....

    No, not under Title VII. It might be a violation of the school code though

    Sexual harassment laws/rules are always stupid, imho.

    In other words just bend over and accept any schools policy as gospel from above.
