Hunter Yelton case: Girl’s mother says conduct “IS SEXUAL HARASSMENT”

Hunter Yelton case: Girl’s mother says conduct “IS SEXUAL HARASSMENT”

If roles were reversed, and little girl kissed a little boy, would school district have reacted with “sexual harassment” charges?

We reported on the 6-year old boy who was suspended for “sexual harassment” for kissing a girl in class on the hand and cheek.

The school has since downgraded the charge, and dropped the “sexual harassment” claim. That always was a ludicrous charge given the age of the students involved, and likely the result of federal guidelines putting funding at risk for districts that do not address sexual harassment.

James Taranto has an extensive column about that:

Clearly buffoons are in charge of the school and the district, but what does that have to do with Obama? The answer is that these buffoons are following orders from Washington.

In April 2011 Russlynn Ali, then assistant education secretary for civil rights, issued a directive in which she threatened to withhold federal money from any educational institution that failed to take a hard enough line against sexual misconduct to ensure “that all students feel safe in their school.” The directive’s preamble declared: “The sexual harassment of students, including sexual violence, interferes with students’ right to receive an education free from discrimination and, in the case of sexual violence, is a crime.” …

“If a school knows or reasonably should know about student-on-student harassment that creates a hostile environment, Title IX [of a 1972 civil rights law] requires the school to take immediate action to eliminate the harassment, prevent its recurrence, and address its effects,” Ali wrote. The music teacher and other school officials were faithfully if ridiculously executing that command when they investigated the tip from the kids who tattled.

Now the girl’s mother is speaking out, defending the school district. She took to Facebook to insist the conduct was sexual harassment (emphasis added).

Jade Masters-Ownbey Not once but over and over… not with her allowance, sneaking up on her, not without warning and consequences prior to suspension. There were 2 boys originally and they kept her from playing with other kids and fought with each other. I had to put restrictions on her about who she was allowed to be around at school. Ive had to coach her about what to do when u dont want someone touching u but they wont stop. Her big brother has even felt he needed to protect her at school. Elementary school, a boy kissed a girl on the cheek and the response of other kids is oooooooooo…. so y do the other kids rush to tell? Because they’ve seen it over and over, they’ve seen the boy repeatedly get in trouble, they’ve seen the girl repeatedly tell him to stop, they know its wrong. I seriously hope people r not going to start bashing the school that is doing a good job protecting my child from what IS SEXUAL HARASSMENT.

Canon City Mother of Girl Facebook Comment

She also gave a local television interview:

Seems to me what we have here is a little boy who may have behavior issues that should be dealt with, but not by labeling him a sexual harasser.

That’s just a politically correct way of addressing somethign that was not sexual, and a reflection of how school administrators — as in Zero Tolerance “gun” cases — have lost touch with reality.

We also have some reverse sexism going on. If the roles were reversed, and a little girl repeatedly kissed a little boy, would the school district have reacted with sexual harassment charges? I doubt it.

Soo, Jaded, as Bubble Boy stated: “How about taking your top off”. Oopps!

Huh, the federalization of interpersonal issues? The Feds apparently have too much time on their and resources on hand that they think that this is a worthwhile to interfere in childhood crushes. My Son and daughter, both under 5 get kissed on the check all the time, whether they wanted it or not, but for some reason I have yet not called the cops or demanded suspensions. A real behavior problem would be if the kids were being sent home with injuries. This is just absurd and their mother is a fruit cake who is obviously taking out some issues she has on a little boy.

    If the kid was black, or it was a boy kissing a boy or a girl kissing a girl, the school would have told the whacked-out, man-hating mom to hit the road immediately.

It’s an epidemic.

Stupidity is an epidemic.

Apparently, the source of the outbreak is somewhere within the educationist establishment, but it’s now spreading to civilians.

Beware, people. Beware!!

Shoot the kid with that 2 inch gun from the stuffed monkey and be done with it.

    No, use what’s in Marvin’s pig*. can’t take chances that the kid might pass on his genes.

    * watch RED.

“In April 2011 Russlynn Ali, then assistant education secretary for civil rights, issued a directive in which she threatened to withhold federal money from any educational institution that failed to take a hard enough line against sexual misconduct to ensure “that all students feel safe in their school.”

The fourth branch of government, the unelected regulators, has no business whatsoever giving out these “directives” or threatening people at any level. This is HARASSMENT.

The boy is good. Maybe the boy was looking for attention. Maybe he is a tactile learner.

Whatever the case may be, his mom and dad can have a sit down with him and tell him that not everyone likes to be touched.

And the buffoons are clearly in “charge of the school and the district”… and U.S. Education.

    re: “The fourth branch of government, the unelected regulators, has no business whatsoever giving out these “directives” or threatening people at any level…”

    Completely agree! This is why just removing Obama, Reid or Pelosi will not really solve much — a riptide of regulations will still be destroying our liberties, unseen until we’re caught up in their grip.

    SMALL government is a partial answer, furthered by closure of entire branches of the federal bureaucracy. These regulations, in effect, have the same impact as any law passed by Congress or a City council.

    My daughter teaches in an inner city school where there are not enough desks. Her teaching assistant ended up in the hospital with his jaw wired shut for trying to break up a fight in the hall. She has students who have gunshot wounds.

    And we are concentrating on this horseshit!

    Juba Doobai! in reply to jennifer a johnson. | December 13, 2013 at 9:38 pm

    The boy is a product of his home environment, which seems to be a very affectionate and respectful one. I imagine he gets into the requisite number of fights, like little boys tend to do, which the school has amplified into “behavior problems”.

    There is a war on against heterosexual masculinity. Little boys who want to play with dolls are fine. However, little boys who act like boys, who are affectionate and complimentary towards girls, these boys are to be beaten and scarred into submission by those who want to take the masculinity out heterosexual males.

Makes you wonder what Elmo and Dora are up to on the kid’s iPad. Like, I mean, seriously.

If a kid threatens another kid and demands that his victim give up his cupcake or get beat up, are we going to charge the bully with extortion? I doubt it. If we accept the mother’s story at face value, the kid needs to be corrected, but on a kid level, not an adult level.

    Anchovy in reply to windbag. | December 12, 2013 at 9:27 pm

    If we prevent the younger generation from threatening to force another person to give up their cupcake, where are we going to find the next generation of union leaders and democrat politicians?

    BannedbytheGuardian in reply to windbag. | December 12, 2013 at 9:49 pm

    He was cautioned at kid level with another boy who has has accepted it & not re offended.

      He was reprimanded however the description of the crime is not correct. I would agree with harassement just not sexual harassement. The other problem I have is if these 2 students had a history of issues why were they not supervised better. It’s really simple you seperate the kids and keep one of them in an adults view at all times until they have learned the needed restraint themselves.

      JackRussellTerrierist in reply to BannedbytheGuardian. | December 13, 2013 at 9:03 pm

      “re-offended”? Oh, please. (rolleyes)

Is there a husband?

The National Husband and Father figure was caught (1) with a string of interns and other females doing more than kissing. That was then (JFK) and then (Clinton). (2) Caught childishly flirting with a hot blonde at a international funeral of a “great man”. Zero tolerance only applies to the non-elite.

    MarkS in reply to bvw. | December 12, 2013 at 9:02 pm

    Doesn’t every thing apply only to the non-elites?

    Juba Doobai! in reply to bvw. | December 13, 2013 at 10:02 pm

    JFK demanded the women wh0re themselves with his aides, brothers, and whomever. Hillary and Betsey Wright blamed the women. Obama’s gonna blame Helle for the selfie and the flirting. This kid, 6 years old, if he learns the lessons taught by Democrat presidents, he will abuse women and blame them for it with the full knowledge that the law and the NAG’s will only come down on him if he’s affectionate to and respectful of women.

Fair and Square.

Fair and Square circa 2013.

Perhaps even Kafka wouldn’t be able to comprehend.

Is there no adult in that girl’s home? This Jade person needs both sides of her face slapped.

Who complained about the kiss? If the girl did that’s one thing but if the girl didn’t object then where’s the harassment? Besides one little smooch really doesn’t fulfill the definition of harassment, does it? During the Clinton years weren’t we told that you get one bite of the apple on the house so to speak? Just askin’!

    Juba Doobai! in reply to MarkS. | December 13, 2013 at 10:03 pm

    The other kids in the class, programmed into rejecting normal childhood behavior, ran to tell the teacher. We are raising a generation of children in the Russian and Chinese mold.

Could it be the mother is jealous of her daughter?

She’s got an “education” degree. That explains she sounds like a bimbo (see her Facebook page. Her profile picture is more attractive than the one above, too).

BannedbytheGuardian | December 12, 2013 at 9:22 pm

Thanks for bringing this back into the main page.

The first to bring this public was the boys mother who complained to the local media. The girl’s mother has been brought into this . ( she was not part of the proces of categorising the charges & was commenting before they were changed to ‘ misconduct’. Now I see some are attacking her here.

What I found disturbing yesterday on this thread was that LI peeps completely overlooked the girl or if they acknowledged her ,at all usurped her & saw it from their eyes . Now you are throwing shit at her by saying ‘oh what if it were her that was doing the kissing attacks ?” Well it is not her .when asked she was reported to have said ” I just want him to knock it off ” .

You have dragged an unknown little girl into your agenda .i think that is called bullying.

    Sorry but IMO the little girl’s mother is the one who has made a public issue over this. She seems to be starting early to push a feminist mindset into her child.

    I thought the little boy’s comments sounded coached – from a mother who seems to not understand that her son has problems behaving. Before all the current parenting education the little boy would have been told ” stop annoying Susie or you’re going to get paddled.”

      From my reading , the first I saw it was both here & in foreign press – the boy’s mother interview with the local tv station .

      It here are a few days between that & the girl’s mother statement on Facebook. I don’t go to personal Facebook sites so maybe there is previous mentions . . Please include any other info you have.

BannedbytheGuardian | December 12, 2013 at 9:43 pm

I would like to point out that not one commenter was at all negative about the boy’s mother yesterday .
Here the girls mother is attacked multiple times & nasty comments on her looks ( which are fine to me & certainly better than the other mum) . But motherhood is not a beauty contest .

I am at a loss as to why this is happening & I certainly hope she does not read this bile .

Six-year-olds are totally familiar with sex and harassment. No wonder they can charge him with sexual harassment with a straight face.

The girl’s mother is a moron. So are the people running this school. Either that, or rabid leftists bent on destroying our culture.

Either way, why are we tolerating them running a school?

This madness has to end, and the only way it will is when we collectively act, and act decisively. The boy’s parents should pull the kid out of that school – home school him if necessary – and/or call for public support to educate this kids in a sane environment.

The movement to absolutely not tolerate this insanity has to start.

I remember Newt Gringrich and others before him promising to dismantle the Department of Education… and there were others before him. But they’ve had their chance.. it’s never happened.

About 7 or 8 years from now, that particular young girl is going to be wondering why all her friends have boyfriends, but none of the boys will ask her out. And it will come down to this incident. All the mothers of the boys in her class will be warning their sons: “Stay away from that girl. Her mother’s a bitch who will try to destroy your life.”

If your kid were harassing my daughter both the school and you would get a visit from me, and it would stop. Right away.

    What if your daughter enticed the kid? What if she was dressed in an alluring manner? What if she asked for it and then changed her mind?

    I’m just curious. Or as Frank Zappa said in the song Suzy Creamcheese, “What would you do, Daddy?”

    Would you cover that girl in chocolate syrup, like Frank suggests?

It’s interesting that on episode 9 season 5 of Modern Family which aired 12/5, this was handled completely appropriately and without becoming the mess that it did for the little boy in this story. The teacher pulled the parent aside and explained what was going on and left it up to the parent to deal with the situation…

    BannedbytheGuardian in reply to aerily. | December 13, 2013 at 12:46 pm

    I saw this only after the next post . Do you have any info that states the mother of the boy was not informed here & in the tv show did the offender re offend?

    If no then the situation is completely different . I am guessing thee would be oproar if the little gay family girl were attacked by a member of the opposite sex at school.

    Or how would this sit have been handled if it was Kelly &/ or Bud involved? What would Peggy & Al do. That would be funny.

BannedbytheGuardian | December 13, 2013 at 12:34 pm

So now the 6 year old girl is being attacked on LI in a sexually aggressive manner . ( see Platypus ) .

So there is one admission above the girl was harassed ( & one stating they would not stand for it either ) .

But you say it is not sexual harassment . Then you sexuallize the 6 year old girl .

And this is not a problem Bill?

    Were where the teachers? The teachers and administrators failed their students by not monitoring the situation. Obviously the teacher failed because they were informed by other kids of the transgression. When you have a problem you don’t try to sweep it under the rug until it blows up.

      BannedbytheGuardian in reply to gmac124. | December 13, 2013 at 2:27 pm

      So you are admitting hunters kissing attacks are so that teachers must be overseeing him at every opportunity.

      Are you saying hunter needs a restraining order?

        “So you are admitting hunters kissing attacks are so that teachers must be overseeing him at every opportunity.”

        Nope. I said when you have a problem you seperate the individuals and keep an eye on them to ensure that your correction worked. Notice also I did not say which student needed to be watched. Correcting a behavior and than doing nothing more allows a child to revert to the old behavior.

          BannedbytheGuardian in reply to gmac124. | December 13, 2013 at 6:05 pm

          But maybe they are in the same elementary class & one cannot separate them. Who would you exile from the peer group & leave stranded.

        “But maybe they are in the same elementary class & one cannot separate them. Who would you exile from the peer group & leave stranded.”

        Nice extremism there, I do believe that kind of attitude is what most people are frustrated with. A child is not conforming to my norm well lets just expell the kid because we don’t know how to redirect and take steps to insure a behavior is corrected. Not hard to seperate kids, in fact I remember that being one of the solutions (besides spanking) when I was growing up. No need to exile one or the other just place them at desks on opposite sides of the room.

We did the SAME THING in about kindergarden or first grade. We had recess where grades kindy – 5th would play outside. I chased, caught and kissed Ricky S. and he exclaimed “eeeeew…!” Game over. No harm done.

We also played on metal bar jungle gyms directly over concrete – if you fell you would get hurt. We were motivated NOT to fall.

Kids are TOO CUSHIONED these days and not allowed to be actual kids.

Political correctness and namby-pamby-ness by way of leftism is destroying America.

Take your kids out of public school and home school if you can.

good luck

So the mother expected her six year old daughter to handle the situation? Instead of going to the principal herself and asking for the parents of the boy to be informed and the situation to be resolved via the adults?

No wonder she thinks it’s sexual harassment. This dingbat who appears to be a single mom loves the drama and attention…who in the hell would allow their six year old to be identified on the internet in this matter and then publicly discuss it, unless they are vying for their chance to be a pretend reality mom, a la Kris Kardashian.

    So you have the complete timeline of the offenses ( plural ) that you can further your deep insight ?

    You know this how?

BannedbytheGuardian | December 14, 2013 at 4:48 pm

Then would need to be an extra restraint on contact throughout the whole day. 6 year olds do not spend that much time at a desk . In fact classes don’t have desks but stations & tables.

You have not been in a elementary school for some time I take it.
