Florida teacher, Shawn Loftis, with gay porn past gets job back
New York Daily News ^ | March 11, 2012 | Michael Sheridan

A part-time teacher's gay porn past isn't reason enough to keep him out of the classroom, according to Florida education officials.

Shawn Loftis, who was booted from the Miami-Dade public school system last year, can go back to teaching, the Florida Education Practices Commission in Orlando ruled Friday.

He could even turn it into a full-time job, the commission decided.

Loftis — who starred in gay porn films under the name Collin O'Neil — was teaching at Nautilus Middle School when the principal learned of his past, according to WPLG 10 News.

The district suspended the substitute in January 2011, then his teacher’s certification was revoked in April, despite the fact that he’d left his porn career behind.

“despite the fact that he’d left his porn career behind”

What the hell is a ‘porn career’? How do you leave a ‘career’ behind?

This should open the door for admitted drug addicts, alcoholics, sex addicts, and part time pornographers. Thank goodness my children are grown and I'll make sure my grandchildren are either home schooled or attend private religious school.

Apparently the guy aged out of his “porn career.” From the sound of it, he has no other regrets. Since his future students are virtually 100% certain to find out all the details, he can probably share with them some tips about getting into the industry, which might be their only hope after they finish public education.

That's where the principal made his mistake. Never ever fire an employee for the obvious reasons. This was a substitute which means his work days depended upon the secretary to call him to offer him the day of work. Easy enough to just not call him and he'd have eventually found other more reliable employment. Now, the school has paid tax dollars to the legal problems and are now stuck with him.

So, who was watching the gay porn when they discovered his previous acting venture?

I seem to recall a Florida (IIRC) teacher being fired for ‘moonlighting’ as a bikini babe on fishing expeditions.

I guess being paid to wear a bikini and help men land their fish is more of a stain on a woman's reputation than being in gay porn is a stain on a man's reputation.

Flori-DUH.

Nope. She is bent the wrong way. In this politically correct world, one has to have a preference for the same sex. now if she was a carpet muncher... that would be a horse of a different color.

Maybe some parents ought to stand outside that school and demand he be fired. Handing out information to the people who wait in cars to get their kids might have an effect.

Of course, our society is so degenerate now, I bet a lot of parents would say, “He was in gay porn? So what?”

Another huge victory for GLSEN, founded by Obama’s former “Safe Schools Czar” Kevin Jennings.

This should rocket him right to the top of the state’s education bureaucracy, forget about getting him a mere teaching job back. This guy needs to be setting education policy for the state, like the pervs in the white house are for the country.

Better to just wave a sign than hand out leaflets. Leaflets could be considered littering, which would then be used to attach a "hate crime" escalation to the penalty.
