    Re: Hooters - should this teacher be suspended for this?

    i feel most sorry for the kid whose parents complained

    and it's a bogus suspension, assuming there was no minimum age of entry which was not achieved by the students who went ... indicating it was open to the public

    we've become a nation of the easily offended

    What do you think? Should this teacher have been suspended for this?

    Here is the article: Paradise Valley High School teacher who took students to Hooters in Phoenix is put on leave


    Personally, I think it is ridiculous. "Hooters" is not a strip club. It is a restaurant, not reallly different from Chili's or TGI Fridays and I doubt the teacher would have been suspended for that.

    The reality is....the parents of ONE boy complained.
    Which raises a bigger question....should the parents of one child dictate what is "appropriate" for everyone else?
    Not maybe the best of choices, but it's nothing bad. It's time to quit listening to people being unreasonable and bitching about stuff. Sure, there are legitimate things to bitch about; but if we follow all the bitching then the most unreasonable of people start setting the rules. And **** that.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    I totally agree. It seems to me, that people like being offended these days. It doesn't make much sense to me.

    Oops. I accidentally voted for "Yes," so subtract 1 vote from that.

    I don't think the teacher should be suspended for taking the kids to Hooters. However, I don't think the teacher should have taken the students to Hooters. It's not because I have any disdain for Hooters. It's that this is 2009 and if you don't anticipate the sensibilities of the most sensitive parents, you're in a lot of danger for reactions like this. That's just the way it is.

    Silly suspension. I've seen kids plenty of times at Hooters. If the waitresses were at all nude, I could understand parental concern. But as it stands, it looks like one kid's overbearing parents had to spoil a harmless trip to eat some wings.

    But those are probably kids who go there with their parents. Parents who don't go to Hooters probably don't go because they disapprove of the restaurant, and so disapprove of anyone else taking their kids there too.

    Or they don't have a clue as to what "Hooters" is and are basing their "outrage" on misconceptions that they have heard.

    For what reason? I cannot think of one legitimate reason, so please help me out. It sounds like the parents made an emotionally charged argument(OMG IT'S HOOOTERS!!!1!!!1!) and got the teacher in a tough spot.

    I did vote yes. Why, because after being a teacher for 23 years, she should have know that the parents would go batsh$t crazy over her taking there "virgin little boys" to a Hooters.
