#WaronBoys – the pathologizing of normal boy behavior continues [Darleen Click]
What do a six-year old boy and former San Diego Mayor Bob “Filthy” Filner have in common?
Permanent records of sexual harassment.
His mother says it’s a crush and the two children like each other. But the school is calling it something else; sexual harassment.
First grader, Hunter Yelton, told us he loves science and phys-ed. Also…that he has a crush on a girl at school, who likes him back.
It may sound innocent enough…but at six years old Hunter now has ‘sexual harassment’ on his school record.
“It was during class yeah. We were doing reading group and I leaned over and kissed her on the hand. That’s what happened,” said Hunter Yelton.
Six year old Hunter was at home on Monday instead of at school.
“They sent me to the office, fair and square. I did something wrong and I feel sorry,” he said.
“She was fine with it, they are ‘boyfriend and girlfriend’. The other children saw it and went to the music teacher. That was the day I had the meeting with the principal, where she first said ‘sexual harassment’. This is taking it to an extreme that doesn’t need to be met with a six year old. Now my son is asking questions… what is sex mommy? That should not ever be said, sex. Not in a sentence with a six year old,” said Hunters’ mom, Jennifer Saunders.
Both hunter and his mom, Jennifer, admit he’s had some trouble at school in the past. Hunter has been suspended for rough-housing, and for kissing the same girl on the cheek.
Who benefits and who loses when the consensual, affectionate behavior of this little boy is conflated with the forced assaults on adult women perpetrated by Bob Filner?
At six years old, I guarantee you that most of the little girls at Hunter’s school have a best (same-sex) friend they hug or hold hands with. Yet it is this little first grader who is now officially labeled what the Left-gender-feminists consider all males –
This boy wasn’t involved in anything dangerous, illegal or even immoral. He didn’t even “steal” the kiss. But hey, he’s a BOY and being the kisser makes the female kissee a “victim.” I note in the article that the boy has been in trouble for “rough-housing”. Just what the heck do these Soviet drones think little boys do when acting naturally?
Rhetorical question, that. Instead of channeling the energy, the Leftist educrats are determined to pathologize and punish it.
And just like the imaginary arrow shooting I posted about earlier, what scares me to death is that the school came down like a ton of bricks because other kids saw this and tattled to the teacher.
Boys are not only being isolated for their non-girl behavior, but even their relationships with best friends of the same sex are now being portrayed as latent homosexuality.
The family of Norman Rockwell is waging a fierce campaign against a new biography of him, bristling at the book’s suggestions that Rockwell, artist of small-town Americana, could have been secretly gay or harbored pedophilic impulses. [...]
In the book, Ms. Solomon raises the question of whether Rockwell was gay, writing that he “demonstrated an intense need for emotional and physical closeness with men,” and that his marriages may have been a strategy for “controlling his homoerotic desires.” She described a camping trip in Quebec that Rockwell took with his male assistant, during which the men swam and played cards together late into the night, and Rockwell noted in his diaries that his assistant looked “most fetching in his long flannels.” There is nothing, Ms. Solomon cautioned in the book, “to suggest that he had sex with men.”
Later in the book, Ms. Solomon writes that “we are made to wonder whether Rockwell’s complicated interest in the depiction of preadolescent boys was shadowed by pedophilic impulses.” She again added a disclaimer: “There is no evidence that he acted on his impulses or behaved in a way that was inappropriate for its time.”
The iconic paintings of Norman Rockwell that poignantly and playfully portray all manner of boys, girls, teens and adults have the males pictures now used as examples of homoerotism.
Makes you wonder, now that Ray Bradbury is dead, when Something Wicked This Way Comes is declared “twink fiction” and Bradbury as a latent pedophile.
Punish boys for exuberant behavior and the dreaded heteronormative behavior, but also cut them off from having close, emotional relationships with a best friend least it be “homoerotic”, and one successfully destroys a creative and, most importantly, independent and self-reliant human being.
Big Government cannot function properly with those in the mix.
