If you're sexy and you know it, clap your hands!

My kid's kindergarten teacher gave me a lecture one day after my daughter was singing "Possum Kingdom" by The Toadies at her school. It's a catchy song. I forgot about the repetitive "Do you wanna die?" part at the end though, whoops.

Personally, I think we should euthanize anyone caught singing LMFAO lyrics. But, because of the young age of the offender I'm okay with a suspension in this instance.

/Also some lashings.

This brings back memories of first-grader me singing Asshole by Denis Leary.

Except, instead of suspended, I won the class talent contest.

So now he's branded as a "sex offender." That kind of sets him up to become one.
 
2012-05-05 06:45:04 AM  
I have no idea what I would've sang when I was in first grade, probably something by The Doors or Rolling Stones. By third grade, I was into Metallica, Motor Head, Judas Priest, and more. By fifth, Rage Against the Machine and Tool both dominated my song lists. Most of those bands had plenty of inappropriate lyrics and themes. Let's not get bent out of shape because someone says "sexy".

I thought the teacher actually knew what Possum Kingdom was about.

the district's code on sexual harassment refers to acts that have "negative" effects on the "learning or work of others."

Their school must be filled with sexual harassment offenders. Eating in class? Talking too much? You are now considered by the district as a pervert and a sexual harraser and will be treated as such. Don't get me started on the high-school. Lord have mercy on them all.

My friend's kids go around singing this song all the time. Not only is it a stupid song, it's extra weird for 11 and 9 year old boys doing it. I blame the parents for not instilling good music in their kids like mine did.
 
2012-05-05 07:09:03 AM  
In American schools boys are defective girls to be corrected or destroyed. But - it does kind of amaze me that they actually enforced a rule, no matter how retarded, against a black child.

My first grader got in trouble on Thursday for singing highway to hell. Difficulty: private school.
Told the principal to lighten up. There is other music out there besides classic music.

He has gotten in trouble before for singing kalinka, in Russian, I sent a let me google that for you for kalinka to the principal... Good times

/ public school next year

We put individuals who lack basic common sense in charge of one of the most important functions in our society.

Plus we let absolute morons elect them. Morons that respond like trained seals and vote when they hear those magic words"zero tolerance"

I mean, do we elect the top surgeons in our hospitals? Do we elect our scientists?

What the farks wrong with people?

Show her the "I'm Elmo and I know it" version. Problem solved.
 
2012-05-05 07:54:42 AM  
I would've been singing "Don't Bring Me Down" by ELO and "Call Me" by Blondie in first grade. I remember my Mom's Dave Clark 5 record being liked by classmates, too, as I played it on the classroom Califone record player. You know, the ones with a 3 pound tonearm force?

(Sheesh...The Dave Clark 5 single back then would be like a first grader playing something from 1997 now.)

I want my boys suspended for singing "Too Drunk to fark".
 
2012-05-05 08:03:28 AM  
That song has the least worse lyrics *bad grammar aside*

I heard one by M16 or Nicky Manage or whoever that went, "She can love you good but I can f**k you better."

I mean, wow. And I'm not offended by stuff. I guess I'm getting old.
 
2012-05-05 08:15:35 AM  
As much as I actually like LMFAO, and generaly reguard them as a comedy act?

I dont think I would want a 6 year old first grader listening to them in the first place..

And it's like, that's not fair to him."

THIS. My 9 year old nephew watched the video and now does the "wiggle wiggle yeah" thing and taught it to his 4 year old sister.

Of course, it must be noted that i dont have any children so i am not allowed to have an opinion on the matter.
 
2012-05-05 08:25:18 AM  
The school clearly needs to go after the source of the problem. LMFAO needs to be suspended for 3 days. Over an active volcano. 5 feet over. By the neck.
 
2012-05-05 08:44:13 AM  
First graders are on the hook for sexual harassment now? Good lord. I could maybe see it being applied in extreme situations. Which this one is not. At all.

My daughter would be expelled. She alternates between "F*ck You", "Gimme Gimme Gimme", and "Bad Romance". She's a real charm to be out in public with.

2012-05-05 08:44:47 AM  
Oh, and as much as I want to blame LMFAO for this, the true culprit is M&Ms. Their commercial is what the kids in our school kept imitating.

(And the kid in the article had gotten in trouble for the same thing with the same girl a month earlier - this wasn't an impulsive suspension)

We used to sing 2 Live Crew lyrics when I was a kid.

Oh, how the times have changed!

I manage a group of crotchfruit after school. This comes up all the time. What are you supposed to do? react in a way that shows them they struck a chord? I play it off, tell em to pick some different language. No explanation. I'm not going to play a part in the cycle of sexualizing a young child by teaching them the word sexy has power.

/stoopid adults are stoopid.
 
2012-05-05 09:08:02 AM  
that's the problem.. "adults"

Kids (even good ones) inherently push the boundaries in order to LEARN where they are at. I mean, are they BORN KNOWING where the "invisible line" is? This "societal message" horseshiat is killing our better judgment in favor of more "conservative" thinking. It needs to go, just like a bunch of other "old" fallacious ideas.

Back when I was in school Rod Stewart's 'Do you think I'm Sexy' was popular and we would all sing it, and nobody as much as raised an eyebrow

Yep. That wording is pretty much verbatim the sexual harassment polices in place in corporate America (except the word learning wouldn't be there). It's the hyper-sensitivity promoted by political correctness and the Everyone is a delicate snowflake crowd.

At more than one large tech company I have worked for, just looking at someone - no words, no noises, no gestures, no body movement, no nothing - just looking at someone, was considered sexual harassment. No, I'm not kidding. The politically correct delicate snowflake crowd got what they wanted.
