Next week's Tom Sawyer: The lesson here is that when teachers insist students keep a journal of thoughts that might otherwise be self-censored, and when requested clarification upon requested clarification results in a repeat of the ambiguous requirements if the assignment, they should not be surprised when the entries contain things one might consider offensive.This teacher should either lighten up, or stop teaching (in the manner she is teaching). Either way, I could give a fark less about some middle aged woman feigning outrage when she was the one pushing the limits.
RedVentrue: You can violate someones personal space with words.
Corlett, a then 56-year-old student enrolled in an advanced critical writing class, titled his journal entries "Hot For Teacher," after a song by the rock band Van Halen, as part of assignment on diary-style composition.
The essay goes on to describe another teacher who is "tall, blonde and stacked" in a "skirt, heels, fingernails, smile," ... He basically said, in the essay he turned in to her, that her looks were distracting....In other journal entries, Corlett described sleeping in the nude with his gun and making a fellow female student uncomfortable when he looked up her number and called her home.

Virtuoso80: 'After encouraging free-thinking and honesty on campus, we found that some guy was being honest and free-thinking in a way that was intimidating and expressed stuff we didn't want to hear, so we suspended him.'

Gawdzila: He's using a writing assignment as an excuse to make extremely blatant sexual advances on his teachers and then using the assignment again as a scapegoat when he gets in trouble for it.
The Gordie Howe Hat Trick: He's guilty of being older and not very attractive.

bingethinker: It's part of modern feminism that any normal feeling that any heterosexual man has is automatically wrong.
Happy Hours: thisispete: Sounds pretty creepy, actually.It does, but so what?As long as he's not harassing them or worse the teachers should STFU and honestly grade his essays on the merits.
