So, I am beginning to wonder, what with the thin air and legalized pot, if everyone in Colorado is perpetually high or just lacking in a normal dose of common sense.
Seems that Canon City Public School District officials have suspended one of their own, a 6 year old little “sexual harasser” for allegedly kissing a fellow 6 year old female student on the cheek. Not only that but apparently the officials want the sexual harasser label to be recorded in the kid’s permanent record (you know the one file we all wish we could sneak a peek at to see what dirt really follows us all around). When questioned by local news reporters the same school district officials asserted that the young boy’s actions “fit” the legal definition of sexual harassment within their school policy and he got what he deserved.
Yeah, go get ’em Canon City school officials. You gotta stop this sort of juvenile delinquency in the bud before it/he blooms into a full, pouty-lipped kissing bandit by the time his Kindergarten graduation dance rolls around. Not that there may be other more pressing matters that should be taking your resources, time and energies. No, make sure the full force of the law smites this little rascal and sends a clear message to all other 6 year-old would-be “cheek-kissers”-keep those cherubic lips in check or Johnny “Canon” Law will come down hard.
Now, as the kid’s Mom makes clear, her son is apparently a “two time” offender. He apparently kissed another little girl on the cheek once before and was previously suspended. So, now the Canonites are out to teach him a lesson about sexual harassment he’ll never forget. Of course, they may have to tell him what the words “sexual” and “harassment” mean first but it appears that this lovely little whitewater rafting community of about 16,000 “free lovers” has plenty of time on its hands for this sort of thing.
Look, real, adult sexual harassment is of course, no laughing matter. But then lots of adult stuff is no laughing matter. But as adults we do learn by then (hopefully) even without being suspended from our Kindergarten and being officially branded as a sexual harasser for all the world to see and having it recorded in our (gasp) permanent school record.
Nice touch there Canonites. Way to pervert a kid’s innocent behavior into a bona-fide criminal act.
Do I want any little or for that matter, bigger girl to have to accept unwanted affection or physical contact? No. Is there a better way to address a 6 year old boy’s kiss on the cheek habit? Yes. I can think of about a dozen.
Let’s see when this kid grows up to be totally screwed up in his relationships with women of all ages I suppose he can simply have them read his Canon School official record and ask for their forgiveness and sympathy.
Maybe it’s for the best though. Canon City is known for having 9 federal and state prisons and penitentiaries in its comparatively small city. Seems the quicker they brand kids as criminals the quicker they’ll make sure those prisons stay filled.
Stay classy Canon City. Stay classy.
