Buy That Kid A Pair Of Western Boots
Flopping Aces ^ | 12-03-11 | Skookum

Liberalism Run Amuck

A seven year old boy takes the John Wayne image of manhood seriously, and is now in big trouble.

A 7-year-old boy is being investigated by his South Boston elementary school for possible sexual harassment after kicking another boy in the crotch.

A seven year old boy was being choked and robbed of his gloves, when he kicked his attacker in the nuts. Thus he ended the assault and prevented the theft.

The school system now claims that the response was an example of sexual assault and they are conducting an investigation.

The mother of first grader, Tasha Lynch:

“He’s 7 years old. He doesn’t know anything about sexual harassment.”

Mark Curran the perpetrator, said his attacker had been bullying him all week on the bus.

His mother says the boy reported to her:

“He just all of a sudden came up to him, choked him. He wanted to take his gloves, and my son said, ‘I couldn’t breathe, so I kicked him in the testicles,'"

“He couldn’t breathe. He was trying to defend himself, I don’t find that sexual harassment. I find that defending himself.”

Ms Lynch says she received a phone call informing her that the incident will be treated as sexual harassment because of inappropriate touching.

My post makes perfect sense. Your belief that women are incapable of functioning as human beings is what makes no sense. It may reflect the reality of your world, but not all women are dismal failures.

I know a female principal in one of the local schools who is a totally no nonsense, can kill with a look, type. Honestly, she could have made a great drill instructor in the military and I wouldn't be surprised if she had been. The kids in that school are scared of her.

She stands head and shoulders in character above the (male) wimps who were her predecessors.

And she's a good looking female to boot. Very intimidating and very common sense and wise.

your post

BykrBayb to goat granny.... My post makes perfect sense. Your belief that women are incapable of functioning as human beings is what makes no sense. It may reflect the reality of your world, but not all women are dismal failures. If you are the kind of person you claim all women are, it’s your own fault. Stop blaming God for making you be born female. At some point, you have to take responsibility for your own actions, and stop using the excuse that you can’t help it because you’re just a female.

My post:

Women in charge of schools is nutz...all the crappy decisions they make should be an embarrassment to them. Too many of these types of decisions are made by females in charge....The touching was totally appropriate for the incident...I’d have done the same thing...

As I said your post has no relation to mine...You obviously have a reading conprehion problem. Your problem not mine>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Continue to post to me if you like,just don't expect an answer. Your too confused to respond to and love to call people liars when they respond to your sillyness. really not worth the time it takes to type to you

Congratulations to your wife and bro's wife.

If someone assaults you, the rule book goes out the window. I cannot believe the assaulter ended up being the victim and the poor kid he was assaulting ended up with performing a sex crime cause he kicked him in the crotch...truly crazy..

No, women in charge of anything is not nutz, this woman meaning this principle being in charge is nutz. Let's not start the general "women shouldn't be in charge" crap.

You gave good advise.

My mother told me to never start a fight but by God don't you ever run from one.

Got sent home from school once 9th grade but I didn't start it :O) the other gal did, also got sent home

...It was funny cause the principal sent us out of school 15 minutes apart...I waited for her cause she was my girlfriend and we just had a little spat and walked home from school together...:O)

We learned that, too - but you don’t get sued for sexual harassment or inappropriate touching with the windmill.

The reason I said you lied is because you did. You may believe that respect for the truth is just silliness, or may be lying about that too, but most FReepers hold the truth in high regard. You accused me of saying exactly the opposite of what I said. You denied saying what you said. You’ve displayed a complete disregard for the truth. You even took issue with the suggestion that you believe your own posts. I won’t make that mistake again, and I doubt very many others will either after reading your verbal manure on this thread. You can’t make up your mind whether or not you even spewed that crap about women, much less whether or not you believe it. Do you really believe that women shouldn’t be allowed to vote, or is that another lie? If you answer that question, will it be with another lie?

I guess choking someone, in an attempted robbery, is considered appropriate touching.

The attacker was just teaching the kid about the government and taxation.

Your right, not all women in power handle it poorly, but lately on FR there has been several such articles posted.

They were all females in one position or another and their victim seems to be young boys that are called sexual harassers for just being young boys...I am talking elementary school age kids and if the woman carries it far enough, a child ends up on a sex offender list....its not just a silly thing when some one calls a kid a sexual predator for hitting some little girl on the playground on the butt and a female prosecutor is charging the boy as a criminal sex offender at age 7. Prosecutor and principal are both females...as I said they should be embarrassed by the way they perform their jobs. I could cry for those boys. Hey but no big deal let these women stay in their jobs and lets just shut up cause they are females and some females can do a good job... I never meant an indictment against all females. When I was in school, 99.9% of all teachers were females and I loved my teachers as most kids do. I am a retired nurse so worked in a profession with mostly females...

But it seems a lot of the story's about boys being harassers is coming from schools run by a female principal. Again I am speaking of elementary age kids.... Hope you never have a son in a school like this boy has... Thats the kind of crap I am talking about....and its always the boys fault isn't it...

You mean like the fact that men are more likely than women to leave the toilet seat up, proving they are inconsiderate and should not be placed in positions of authority?

It's not that men "leave the seat up" as you say: that's where it SHOULD be, so that it doesn't get urine sprayed all over it.

Women keep putting the seat *down*.

Which makes no sense unless you think of men as merely sitzpinklers.

Like some pathetic female that wrote and said all sex is rape. That goes back to the rabid lib days...too bad she never met a man that knew what he was doing and she got published.

Consider that line STOLEN. I'm going to use it at the next opportunity.

Thanks, goat granny.

Cheers!

See post 48. We’ve moved beyond the “women shouldn’t be in charge” crap to the “women shouldn’t be allowed to vote” crap.

G.K. Chesterton was against women's suffrage because he felt they were too easily swayed by emotion reliably to vote rationally (note the awkwardness engendered by the lack of a split infinitive); and that their political influence should be used on their husbands at home.

God only knows what he would have said given the demographics of the single-mother vote as a monolithic lib-Democrat constituency.

Cheers!

As I expected no one has addressed the fundamental problem.

The problem:
If we treat kids like prisoners, herd them into prison-like buildings, and provide insufficient adult supervision, we **will** see PRISON SOCIAL PATHOLOGY!

Fundamentally, I believe that our human ancestors, all 150,000 years of them, would be both amused and horrified that we treat children as cruelly as we do. I doubt that there is any documented account of any historical culture educating children as we do now. Even in my father's day, it was more likely that children attended extremely small one-room-schools of mixed aged children and they were finished by the 8th grade. The very idea of kindergarten did not exist. ( He was born in 1913.)

I've been going to the beach since I was an infant. As they say in Philly, “Down the shore!”. One day I was watching my children and the other children playing on the beach and it occurred to me that I had never, in more than 40 years, seen bullying on the beach among the elementary or middle school aged children, or experienced it myself. Why was that I wondered. I observed the following:

** There was more than enough adult supervision. Drowning is always a danger on a beach, and because of this there are enough adult eyes watching what is going on. I suspect that the children subconsciously know this.

** The older children were eager to teach the younger children the new skills they had mastered on a year or two before. One afternoon I watched a ten year old work with a 6 year old for literally the entire day on doing cartwheels. Geeze! That trashes the idea that children have short attention spans, or that children are only interested in their narrow age group.

** Mixed ages of children commonly played together. The most common range seemed to be within 4 years.

** When children were tired or hungry, they freely left the play group and took a rest.

** When younger children threw sand or accidentally stepped on a sand project, the older children gently taught them beach manners.

** Older children organized team games, and agreed upon rules. I concluded that the “real world” team skills and cooperation are learned in **PLAY** not in any hot house, school-created, and artificially created project.

Please, metmom, you KNOW that only straight kids are capable of bullying and only gay kids can be bullied. /s

A straight kid bullying a straight kid is not noteworthy, sadly. Bullying is only an issue if a minority is the victim.

Besides, I find myself wondering, not to be racist or anything, just being realistic: was the attacker a minority? Black? Muslim? Or even—gay? (can 7yr olds be gay, even?) Because if the attacker was a minority and the defender was white, then you know the school board is going to make a big deal over it.

And if the attacker is a minority, it’s almost certain that this fact will not be in the news.

Choking someone isn’t “inappropriate touching?”

More and more the crime is the resistance to the criminal.It makes perfect sense in a Liberal worldview for a couple of reasons.

Philosophically it is because the criminal is not responsible for his actions, he is a product of society or reacting to being dissed, the unforgivable sin, and is not rational- therefore blameless. It is rational to resist when attacked so that makes any harm to the attacker a product of a rational act, thus the resister deliberately harmed the person who "couldn't help it."

Practically, liberals fear a population that reacts against abuse because liberals are determined to be the Rulers and they will brook no opposition. They believe a totally passive population is required for a peaceful society that can be molded into Utopia. The only way they can get this totally passive society, however, or the nearest to it they can get, is in use of The Terror, not what is officially termed terrorism but classic Terror as deployed by Le Directoire during the French Revolution and by the USSR during most of the 206h century and by China and various other communist regimes.

It is not just Boston, it is the whole Homosexual State and the Schools get the most concentrated and enthusiastic LGBT activism. Massachusetts and California get the lion's share of the educational horror stories with Massachusetts being pretty well ahead of Cali.

Putting ones children in public school is prima facie child abuse, especially in Massachusetts.

Bullies, thugs, and criminals are not dangerous to the State. People who resist bullies, thugs, and criminals are dangerous to the State and therefore are much more serious problems for society than mere murderers and thieves.

Let me be perfectly clear. In no way, shape or form did I in any way take up for this evil, sick person.

All I said was that you should not have used a blanket statement about women.

Personally, I’d have killed the demon for laying a hand on any member of my family, but that’s just me.

I know you were not sticking up for that idiot principal.

Blanket statements is not the best way to word something...but as I said, FR has had several articles posted about young boys being put on sexual offender lists

. The principals names were females, not males...This idea of 7 year olds being sexual offenders is stupid and they should all be fired...I feel sorry for the young child that gets one of these idiots for teachers or principals.. It appears to me that they are out to prove something and the boy is the one these vicious females descend on.

Once on the offenders list, you stay on. This effects the boys future totally..and he will be stuck with being on that list the rest of his life...including his getting a job...that is criminal and these sick females are totally responsible for that....

You an I agree.

Charging a child (who was being bullied by the way) as a sexual offender is beyond moronic. I hope that the parents fight this all the way.

Whether female (as the principle in this case was) or male, all these libs need to stop the crap they’re doing. And, the parents need to “step up” for their kids.

I have been noticing that these acts are usually females...Could be a male idiot, but have not noticed male names...that was why I wrote what I did...probably should have better phrased it, by saying the one's that have been written about are mostly females...it just burns me up at the hard hearted women doing something so vicious...

Boys are not as quiet as girl students. I think there is a prejudice against the boys if the women have no children of their own or only girls....my daughter was so easy compared to her 4 older brothers...but they were just being active while girls can sit for hours with a doll house and play..It would take a boy about 10 minutes before he learned how to bomb the house. GG

PS there was a story a week or so back that a boy hit a girl on the bum as he ran by...The female principal turned it over to a female prosecutor and she is charging the boy criminally for inappropriate touching...another 7 year old boy on a sex offender list....the prosecutors excuse was there is no age limit to the law and the kid is going to trial unless someone in the office gets a brain and pulls their head out of their ass.....
