Are school officials unable to think for themselves anymore?
It’s a line that has likely helped earn LMFAO piles of cash … but all it got a 6-year-old Colorado boy is a three-day suspension for sexual harassment. First-grader D’Avonte Meadows apparently voiced the line “I’m sexy and I know it” to a female student while in the lunch line. And he didn’t even sing it—”I only just said the song,” he tells 7News. His mom is none too pleased, and explains that she sees things like “fondling … looking up her skirt” as sexual harassment, not quoting an MTV favorite. “They’re going to look at him like he’s a pervert. And it’s like, that’s not fair to him.” Sable Elementary School issued a statement saying it couldn’t discuss the case; the district’s code on sexual harassment refers to acts that have “negative” effects on the “learning or work of others.”
The story notes that the boy said the same line to the same girl in the lunch line a month ago. But we’re talking about six year olds. They’re probably friends, and he’s probably thinking of the M&M’s commercial that features the LMFAO song. It’s been a big hit. It played during the Super Bowl and everything. Sable Elementary’s administrators ought to take a look at it.
Instead, they turn their brains off:
School officials issued a statement saying they couldn’t discuss the case, but they pointed out a school board policy that defines sexual harassment as any unwelcome sexual advance. There is no age limit.
Fire everyone involved with suspending this boy. They’re idiots and should lose their posh government jobs.
