Posted on 03/13/2012 5:36:06 PM PDT by bigbob
Oakland University in Michigan has denied the appeal of a student who was barred from campus, suspended for three semesters, and required to undergo "sensitivity" counseling for authoring a class assignment in which he stated that he found his instructors attractive. While the assignment specifically permitted students to write creatively about any topic, the university bizarrely classified his "Hot for Teacher" essay as "unlawful." Joseph Corlett came to the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE) for help.
"Oakland University made up its own definition of the 'law' in order to punish a student for his creative writing," said FIRE President Greg Lukianoff. "The special irony here is that Joseph asked several times if it was really okay to write anything, and several times he was told it was. Now, because he took that instruction seriously, he is being kicked out of school and facing mandatory counseling. Having taken many, many writing classes myself, I know that essays often have racy topics, from drugs, to sex, to violence, but apparently a riff on a Van Halen song that seemed to be everywhere when I was a kid is a capital offense."

This student must be part of the "war on women"...
If he had written that he found his male teachers attractive they would have made him Valedictorian.
Hear dat’ ;-)
He would have gotten an A.
Amen to that!
Or if he’d (ahem) urinated on the teacher, it would have been considered performance art and given an “A”.
His mistake was not in writing that he found his MALE teachers attractive. He would have gotten an A+ and gold star.
Actually, he should not be seeing his teachers as sexual objects...or at least admit it for attention.
Teachers have made the public schools and students into sexual objects for the gay agenda so I guess you can not blame the boy for “sharing” his inner most porn desires with his teacher. He should have done it in “comprehensive sex education” and then he would have gotten an A.
Humility and inhibitions are good things.
And endless phone calls from those male instructors.
Was the teacher upset because her name appeared in the essay?
Or because it didn't?
Maybe she don't swing that way.
Or is it HE instead of SHE?
I learned long ago that college profs are essentially closed-minded dictators - if you can discern what they believe and feed it back to them, you'll pass every time...
Another Democrat step down the Progressive road to Communism.
This wasn’t in a public school it was in the University in Michigan.
Hate to tell you but the U of Mich is a publicly funded school. :)
Public schools go from K to University.
So what? They are all adults.
Aren’t you full of yourself tonight. :)
So what, they are adults...being sexually disrespectful of the teachers.
He was in an Advanced Critical Writing course and "the boy" as you called him is 56 years old. You would also know that he had vetted the subject with the professor several times before he finished his essay and that it was fiction based on a Van Halen song not his actual instructors.
I'd rather be full of myself than full of crap. lol
I had a writing class in high school and the teacher was an extremely attractive 30-something married woman. We had a similar assignment and one of my buddies wrote a story (LOL! I still remember it) called “Piggly Wiggly” about working for the summer in the produce section of the local grocery store. He described the young attractive housewives that would come through the store regularly and how they would smile and wink at him which, of course led to his fantasizing. He showed it to me before we turned in our papers and though he kept it clean, he described one suggestive encounter with a lady that matched the teacher’s description perfectly. The only change was the name. I thought his butt was cooked.
The next day, the teacher glided down each row of desks giving our graded stories back. When she got to my buddy’s desk, she paused. My friend was practically sweating as he nervously lifted his head. The teacher smiled, shot him a wink, and handed him his paper. The sumbitch got an ‘A’! I went back and read it again and it was a grammatical nightmare. But dang if she didn’t give him his one and only ‘A’ for the entire semester!
He should only be suspended if she wasn’t really hot . . .
Why not? Everytime some whore pedophile teacher seduces one (or several) of her male students, the FR perverts come out and cheer her on. Garbage that they are.
