    School outed teen to parents, said it was ‘legally obligated’: lawsuit

    By Daniel Tencer
    Thursday, December 23rd, 2010 -- 8:05 pm


    Two softball coaches at a Texas high school are being sued after allegedly confining a teenaged girl in a locked room, forcing her to admit her sexuality, then outing her to her parents before ejecting her from the softball team.

    The lawsuit states that the school district defended the actions by saying the teachers were "legally obligated" to inform the parents of the child's sexuality.

    According to the suit (PDF) http://www.courthousenews.com/2010/12/22/CivRts.pdf filed in an east Texas federal court, in March of 2009 a junior at Kilgore High School -- identified only as "SW" -- was ordered to a meeting of the softball team. The coaches, named in the lawsuit as Rhonda Fletcher and Cassandra Newell, then dismissed everyone but SW, ordered her into an empty locker room, locked the door and confronted the teen about her sexuality.

    "Fletcher asked SW if she was gay, and accused her of having a sexual relationship with another girl. She also claimed that SW was spreading gossip about this other girl being 'Coach Newell’s girlfriend," the lawsuit states.

    The libs are outraged about this. Seems to me that the coaches were just in the liberals playbook.....it's better to be "out", and it's OK to "out" someone if you don't agree with them.

    Is Lindsey Graham about to be outed?


    http://wonkette.com/433064/loathsome-southern-dandy-lin...

    Lindsey Graham, South Carolina’s favorite lifelong bachelor and former military prosecutor, is always reliably against homosexuals having any basic human rights in America because Lindsey’s a Republican, y’all. Anyway, famous outer-of-self-hating-queers Mike Rogers says he’s got pictures of one of Lindsey’s boy toys leaving Lindsey’s house. This would be SHOCKING because come on, everybody knows Republicans cannot be gay because Jesus did not make gays.

    Mike Rogers says on his Twitter:

    I wonder if Lindsey Graham knows I have pictures of a man who spent the night at his house. pls RT

    Just reached lawyer at home. Meeting set for Tues. on releasing pix of man who spent night at Lindsey Graham’s.

    They'll have all kinds of rationalizations about why it is OK to "out" one person but not another but it all comes down to their own warped sense of what is "just", "rational" and what serves their political purposes. "Outing" is "outing" no matter the rational, and it's either OK or it's not OK.

    Another way of looking at it is not who is being outed but who is doing the outing. A school teacher is supposed to have a much different and trusted relationship to the student than a journalist or activist is to a politician or self righteous hypocritical religious jackass.

    spin. Either outing=bad or outing =ok. Saying it is okay depending on who is doing it and to whom is relativism of the worst sort.
    Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.

    By that logic, execution is murder by contract and the governor should be imprisoned.


    These teachers are going to need to find new careers independent of the outing aspect of this. From the skim of the article, I would think that their trickery and imprisonment of the student could land them in jail.

    Little kids and teens don't have any sexuality worth talking about. No matter who or what they are doing it with, their immaturity is too great to make any definitive statements about their sexuality in the long term.

    The class slut can become a born-again virgin, the asexual can turn into a horn dog, the effeminate token gay boy can become an ordinary masculine heterosexual, and plenty of girls who play around girls grow up to be card-carrying heterosexuals.

    The school should never have even considered the girl's "sexuality". Her behavior? Sure.

    STRAWMAN. Deal with the issue at hand and stop trying to build false comparisons.

    Do you not see a difference between a teacher outing a teenager and a gay activist out some hypocritical piece of shit who votes against equal rights for gay people?

    Personally I don't think anyone should be 'outing' anyone else. Someones private business is their private business. And please save the bullshit claims that gheys don't have equal rights for the leftist forums. That kind of bullshit is not gonna fly here.

    I can't count all the times that activist magazine, or group has forced their way into someone's life and outed them. People's private lives are just that, private.

    I will not pushed,filed, stamped, briefed , de-briefed or numbered !!!
