Boner Candidate #1: YOU HAVE NO CHOICE BUT TO DANCE

A Utah mom said it’s ‘unacceptable’ that her 11-year-old daughter wasn’t allowed to say ‘no’ when asked to dance. During a Valentine’s Day dance, 11-year-old Azlyn Hobson, told our media partners at The Salt Lake Tribune, a boy who makes her feel uncomfortable asked her to dance. She said no, but then she said Rich Middle School Principal Kip Motta, came over. “He was like, ‘You guys go dance. There’s no saying ‘no’ in here,’” Azlyn said. So, Azlyn said she had to dance with the boy. “I just didn’t like it at all,” Azlyn said. “When they finally said it was done, I was like, ‘Yes!'” Azlyn’s mom, Alicia, posted on Facebook after hearing what happened. “The point is that this kid makes my daughter feel uncomfortable. She should not have to stand close to him with his hands on her if she doesn’t want to. She has the right to say no to anyone for any reason or no reason. Her body is her body and if she doesn’t want to dance with someone, that’s her prerogative,” she said on Facebook. Principal Motta said he never said that the student had to dance with the boy. “No one was forced to do anything. All they had to do was communicate with me. That’s what we tell the kids all the time,” he said. The school hosts three dances a year as part of the physical education curriculum rhythm and movement, Motta said. Read More

Boner Candidate #2: IS IT THE BUS DRIVER’S FAULT THAT THE BLACK KIDS ARE NOISY?

Comal County ISD has placed a bus driver on administrative leave pending a formal investigation into claims of middle school students being segregated by their race. Steve Stanford, the district’s spokesperson, told KSAT on Tuesday that officials interviewed the bus driver during their preliminary investigation. The bus driver told officials, “the assignment of students to specific seats was based on student behavior,” Stanford said. “If there is evidence gathered that supports an intent other than student behavior for assigning seats, then appropriate disciplinary action will be taken,” Stanford said. The district said an incident happened on the bus while on the way to the school last Thursday that sparked the seat assignments. But Danville Middle School students and their parents claim that the bus driver “segregated by color.” The claims were made on Facebook in a private community group. One student said some other students were making loud noises, but she felt discriminated against after the driver handpicked students who were white to get off the bus, while selecting students of color, including herself, to remain on the bus.
