Also as a PS - What if he had a part time job as a nude model or was a nude model for an art class? What if he and his wife if he were married posted photos of themselves on an adult private website and someone hacked it and shared the pictures around the school? he would still be asked to resign when he did nothing illegal OR FOR THAT MATTER DIDN;T DO ANYTHING WRONG.
This is ridiculous. I would sue if I were him because nothing illegal happened and it resulted in the loss of his job. Monetary damages and compensation.
Consenting adult to adult photo sharing isn't illegal. It isn't even illegal to upload one by MISTAKE to his FB page. If he had done it intentionally for ALL to see including students since he knew they visited his page then yeah fire him. It was up for TEN FRIGGIN MINUTES!! As soon as it was known that it wasn;t private it was removed rather quickly.
There is a FB setting to make photos available only to yourself or someone who has been given permission to view them.
Seriously though he didn;t do anything wrong other than not make sure his photos were set as private and not public. get over it .... please.
Why did he resign for doing NOTHING illegal? Ridiculous.
Are we so politically correct now that an adult who accidentally post a nude photo intended for another consenting adult be required to resign? it was up for about 10 whole minutes ... BIG DEAL.
If I were you people I would send your children to private schools because this an example of the current stupidity allowed in today's modern public schools.
Would this still apply if adults used an adult website made for adults to post nudes of themselves and you needed to be 18 to view them? They would still probably fire him if he were married and he and his wife did it.
This is just horsecrap really.
I wonder how many teachers promote getting drunk on their Facebook pages by mentioning about partying with their brother or relative? I suppose "anything" is grounds for job dismissal these days. if I were him I would file a lawsuit against the school if they forced him to resign or be fired.
Why the hell are Americans so uptight about nudity anyway? The rest of the world has nude beaches and topless beaches with children playing on them etc. If you've ever wondered why the rest of the world laughs at us articles like this are why.
Well in fairness it is a part of the process, enough signatures were gathered to have it on for a vote again. Hopefully if it doesn't pass it will not be allowed to keep coming back over and over again. That goes for all things petitioned for a vote.
Maybe it is time to petition for a petition limit lol.
Trust me I'm NOT a racist. I pretty angry still about the Lewiston residents treatment and bigotry towards the Somalis, but that is a whole nuther discussion.
I think I need a new set of cans with string in the middle because I am hearing the same thing.
You're just like those Liberal meatwads who state things like "If you don't support Barack Obama it's because you're a racist".
Whatever, a refusal to listen is a refusal to learn. Have a good one.
Didn't state it was MY opinion, you seem to read what you to when you read. The general perception among those who either fear gays or do not support gay marriage feel that way. It isn't my opinion or many others but it exists and matters with the gay marriage issue, the main point was gays should tone down gay pride parades and act NORMAL since they are craving NORMALCY and equality.
The other "mistake" in my opinion is forcing the issue when people clearly are not ready yet in Maine, as stated above you should take baby steps to get what you want.
I don't support gay marriage because I feel it is between a man and woman because men and women procreate to make new life. Anything else to me seems like "special rights". It's just how I feel inside about it.
I disagree, it isn't immaterial to the argument. It forms opinions to straight people in a rural state that gays are freaks and not equals. Straight people do not trust that gays can raise children properly after seeing gay men in gay pride parades wearing outlandish costumes and looking like freaks. I just wanted to explain other people's thinking, if you choose to ignore it .... oh well. Many straights consider being gay a perversion and costuming like that doesn't help anybody.
Gay marriage passes .... then it is repealed. Why was that? Because everyone supports gay marriage, understands and wants it? Obviously not, if you do not wish to listen as to why straight people fear it or are against it then don't listen. You are forcing it on people instead of taking baby steps and are wanting the full package against the majority.
It'll fail again and if not will be repealed again and again and again.
I don't understand why civil unions aren't good enough, virtually all people on the planet are ok with that.
As mentioned so eloquently above about why gays would want to marry in a church that has forever wanted gays cast into hell just makes me shake my head.
I've no stigma that gays cannot raise children, be good people and be perfect citizens because they can. I think the best thing gays could do for themselves with this issue is to drop the shock and awe at gay pride parades. Straight people don;t want to see freaks in lime green garter belts with foam rubber penises dancing around like mental ward patients in the streets. It scares people who do not understand and is TOO in your face. Trust me a gay couple holding hands in a parade say a lot more than those people do.
Maine isn't New York or Los Angeles or any other huge populace. It takes time and the gay marriage movement comes across as a parent forcing their kid to eat their peas. They are rebelling against it because you are too forward with always telling people they aren't right because they are simple, stupid or bigots.
I'm not a bigot and I am know I am not.
