    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?
    Back in high school we used to get a day off to study for exams at mid-term and end of semester. A bunch of us boys went to Hooters to study. It's not like they were at the damned Sugar Shack. The most perverted thing about Hooter's is that horrid sauce they put on those fatty, gristly things they call wings.

    No, she should not have been suspended. Especially not over the complaints of one kid's mom.

    You should try going to the Hooters in Anchorage, Alaska. All the waitresses there are the rejects that weren't hot enough to work at the Bush Company or The PJ Club. And the one in Palmer? Hehehe, I don't think there's a full set of teeth between the entire wait staff.

    Sexuality is a sensitive subject. That's why teachers tend to avoid sexual tainted comments, eventhough they may be widely used outside the classroom. You want to keep a certain distance, as these kids are required to respect you.

    I know once one of our classmates started boning our drama teacher in high school, no one really respected her much anymore. We pretended to respect her so maybe we could bone her too because she was hot. But we didn't really respect her.

    No, but parents who read the Bible to their kids should be charged with giving minors access to adult material since it contains passages about incest, rape, bestiality, murder, prostitution, etc.

    lol

    I highly doubt a parent would be reading select passages about rape, incest, bestiality, murder, and prostitution to their kids. Let's not be hysterical now.

    I think this woman was quite young. It is quite naive, I agree, that she didn't realize that there is quite a broad spectrum of society that has children in the school system. I'm sure this will be a learning experience for her.

    I was being sarcastic. But whoever got offended by this needs to get a fuggin life or just get laid. The human body is not evil, Xians! If God thought it was, he would have made us all Angels.
