MojaveMike: There was a high school in Washington state where the teachers all showed up one day wearing BLM teeshirts to show that they were all SJWs. I wonder what would have happened if a group of teachers had decided to show up wearing All Lives Matter teeshirts. Seems to me that freedom of speech is freedom of speech... or is it?

mrfish: Double standards without a doubt, but it sounds like a hypothetical situation and so it probably depends on where it happens. Some places showing up with an All Lives Matter t-shirt might get a teacher fired and other places no one would give a darn. Even within the same city there might be completely different reactions all depending on which individuals hear about it and how big of a stink they raise.

MojaveMike: I seriously doubt that a teacher could be fired for wearing an All Lives Matter t-shirt, although some school districts might attempt to dismiss the teacher. The dismissal would fail since teachers have first amendment rights just like anyone else. In the case where other teachers were allowed to wear Black Lives Matter t-shirts, a teacher who a district attempted to fire for wearing an All Lives Matter t-shirt would have a viable lawsuit against the district for obvious reasons.

SCOTUS to rule on transgender bathrooms, schools
Biology is simple, but people like to make things complicated. Only in the case of rare genetic anomalies is there any ambiguity.

First graders share their thoughts on Trump and Clinton
These kids seem to be convinced that Hillary Clinton is a liar and that neither Trump or Clinton acted like grownups during the debate.

wildrose: Kids tend to parrot whatever their parents say. That's even more true when we're talking about very young children like first graders. It is funny how it gets mixed up in the retelling though. Kids say the darndest things!

Spring Valley teacher accused of dragging student
Teenage piece of shit disrupts class, the teacher deals with the worthless punk, and the kid's retarded mom whines about her baby being roughed up. The kid ought to be placed in a juvenile detention camp and given some legitimately rough treatment and extremely harsh discipline. The mom is completely worthless and is the reason why the kid turned out to be such a waste of oxygen in the first place!
