The old saying ‘when you’re a hammer, everything in the world looks like a nail’ is, mutatis mutandis, true of America’s oversexualized society. When sex is all a society thinks about, it’s everywhere in everything.
A 6-year-old boy has been suspended from his suburban Denver school for three days for sexual harassment after quoting a line from a song. School officials say the first-grader was sent home from Sable Elementary School after telling a girl “I’m sexy and I know it,” a line from a popular song.
So a tiny child quoting a stupid song which he heard (probably with the knowledge of his parents) and quoted is somehow conceived as sexual harassment by a teacher at a school who is so terrified of crossing into the dominion of political incorrectness that even an apparent infraction is a big deal.
Maybe if sex weren’t the end all be all of our society the doubtless innocent repetition of idiotic lyrics wouldn’t have become an issue at all.
The Aurora school issued a statement saying it couldn’t discuss the case, but referred to a school board policy that defines sexual harassment as any unwelcome sexual advance. There is no age limit.
Good grief. If you want to know what’s wrong with America, this sums it up perfectly.
