This is a fascinating thread.

Far more interesting, engaging, and intelligent than those Liberal post-count threads.

Perhaps the best feature of this thread is the lack of Trolls traipsing around here and pooping all over.

Strange that JSF was able to pull it up and comment on it as well.

All I saw was a blank thread title that I couldn't click on that occasionally had more posts to it.

I'm not sure how JSF pulled the thread up, but since I made the mistake of NOT bookmarking it before I deleted the thread title (DOH!) I got to it again by clicking in a thread title that was posted at about the same time to see approximately what the URL looks like. The URL is of the form http://www. fireflyfans.net/mthread.aspx?bid=18&tid=62661

I got to a number that was close to this one, and just started incrementing from the thread that I was on. It only took two tries to get back to this thread; so I added the title so people (including me) could easily access it again.

So, is that how you got an entire thread and a bunch of associated posts to disappear? By posting them under a different (but similar) ID, and then deleting the ID?

Trump said on Thursday a possible shutdown of the U.S. government over border wall funding “most likely” would not happen until after the November congressional elections.

In an interview with Fox News, Trump said he had been persuaded that closing the government would hurt his fellow Republican candidates. Et voilà! (There we are!) Hurting Republicans is entirely the reason for the shutdown. Without the hurt, Republicans won't vote for the wall.

As do you. YOU were the one who supposed that HAKEN "disappeared" your posts on purpose, remember? And my response was like Oh great you're defaming Haken now.

I'm just returning the favor of returning your defamatory conspiracy theory with mine.

For a thread largely devoid of Trolls, a valid topic of discussion:

https://ca.style.yahoo.com/boys-not-allowed-touch-principal-threatens-
expel-teen-t-shirt-130805168.html




A teenage girl is being threatened with expulsion after wearing a T-shirt asking boys not to touch her.

A Wisconsin mother took to Reddit seeking legal advice after her 17-year-old daughter was repeatedly groped and sexually harassed and at school by her male classmates. In a bizarre turn of events, her daughter is being threatened with expulsion after she took matters into her own hands.
Screencap via Reddit

“My 17-year-old daughter was a late bloomer, but she ‘developed’ a lot over the summer. Since returning to school, she has been groped multiple times by her male classmates,” the mother wrote in the r/legaladvice sub Reddit. “She reported this to the principal and after ‘conducting an investigation’ he told her that the boys were just joking around and teasing her and she shouldn’t take it so seriously.”

The mother then notes that she went to the school’s principal after her daughter continued to be harassed and assaulted, however she was told that her daughter, “wasn’t making it clear enough to these boys that she didn’t want to be touched.”

Frustrated, the mother said she is going over the principal’s head to the school board to hold the boys accountable for their actions.

In the meantime, her daughter took matters into her own hands. She writes, “Yesterday, my daughter wrote ‘BOYS ARE NOT ALLOWED TO TOUCH ME’ on a white T-shirt and wore it to school. I wasn’t aware that she did this but I don’t think it was wrong.”

Unsurprisingly, the principal who relied on the “boys will be boys” excuse decided to punish the female student, and is now threatening to have her expelled.

ALSO SEE: High schooler gets told to put on a bra ‘so guys don’t stare’

“She was sent home for the day and told that her shirt was inappropriate. I talked to the principal again today and he said that her shirt was sexist because it implied that ‘men are animals.’ He told me that he was considering expulsion over her T-shirt because it was harassment.”

According to Wisconsin State Legislature, school staff, administrators and counselors are considered mandated reporters, and are required by law to immediately report any case of child abuse, neglect, or threat of harm or violence to law enforcement.

Technically, the mother can take legal action against the principal for endangering her daughter and subjecting her to further sexual assault and harassment. Under section 5 of statute 175.32, any mandated reporter who intentionally fails to report as required can be fined up to $1,000 and could potentially face up to six months in jail.

My first impulse is to be pissed off. My second impulse is to wonder what was left out of this story. It has certainly happened often enough - where 'trigger' stories are printed, and we learn only later that things weren't so black and white. I wish I could trust the media more to go after all the facts instead of having to wonder.

OTOH it looks like the mom has recourse to bring charges against the principal. I hope she pursues it.

Given that it percolated through the he filter of social media, there might not be any "left out" of this story.

Of course, expecting the Principal to do the lawful Duty could make her the pariah of her community. But I hope she does that. Or the local Prosecutor or Sheriff. As long as he supports the Teachers Union the School Board won't touch him.


This does piss me off as well. The concept that a girl growing boobs is thought to be invitation for unwanted fondling, grabbing, etc. Is foreign to me. Has Social Media desensitized the general population?

I never really understood the serial rapists in my school getting away with it, but some adult women call this "boys will be boys"

I hope the mom has the focus and the gumption to 'go there'. And while it really, truly shouldn't have to come to that - sometimes, 'ya gotta do what 'ya gotta do.

I don't even see how this story could be real. I'm not saying it isn't, but what the hell. This guy is never going to work again. Did he forget it's 2018 and not 1958? Even I fully agree that he was in the wrong here if she was actually being grabbed constantly and he did nothing. LOL... good on her for writing that shirt. Sounds like something I would have done in that situation myself.




SIDE NOTE:

Quote:


ALSO SEE: High schooler gets told to put on a bra ‘so guys don’t stare’



One of these things is not like the other, so I'm not understanding the "Also See". Any girl that went to school when I was in high school with her nipples poking out of her t-shirts would have been sent home, and rightfully so. Dress codes these days are extremely weak for both sexes as it is compared to 20 years ago, but being in your field you have to agree with me on this one, right? Boys at that age are flooded with chemicals that can seriously screw with higher brain functions when stimulated and seeing nipples poking out of a tight t-shirt is just begging for bad behavior. I'm not even talking about groping, just not being able to focus on class work when half the girls are sitting there with their nipples protruding.



As far as this one though:

If the rip wasn't anywhere on the crotch or otherwise showing off panties or bare ass cheeks, I don't see what the problem here is.
