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

    Please read the linked story; there are some disturbing facts. WTF "legal obligation" could there be?

    Your thoughts?

    there is no 'legal obligation'... there are only homophobes who are so filled with hate that they're ok with seeing a the girl victimized.

    cause you know, maybe they'll be able to beat the gay out of her. :cuckoo:

    Did I understand the story correctly that one of the female Coaches was dating that girl? If true the coach should be fired just for that.

    I also heard there was sexual contact between the girl and 1 of the coaches, how come no one is talking about that?

    My reading of the story is, the coach and her coworker confronted the victim and accused her of spreading a rumor that the coach was dating a student, a girl. This seems to have been what fueled the woman's anger -- understandable -- but that anger seems to have clouded her judgment very badly.

    I'm not sure if any of the females in this story are lesbians, but you're right....allegations of teacher on student sexual contact (if there actually are any) should be investigated criminally.

    The whole thing sounds like a dramafest on steroids to me.

    Interesting. You do realize that she was 'outed' to her PARENTS. Why is that such a problem with anyone here? Is it a bad thing that the parents know of a secret relationship? I am not saying they should have done so but I am saying I cannot see why the big deal or the reason for a full blown lawsuit. It stinks of bullshit to me. The story even states that the family is ok with being publicaly identified. THAT screams of pining for attention and money. If they were so concerned about privacy they would not want to be publically known. It seems to me that there should be FAR more worry about dealing with this publically than dealing with her parents.

    When K D thought she was going to be outed she went public hard time. I don't agree with "outing". Out of the blue KD "came out" rather than having been outed.

    Now it has all turned out for the best, but I think only because she confronted the situation so bravely.

    But Lang brought the hell fire with her and went with it to the max. And she changed a lot of lives.

    Having been in the industry there were a lot of DADT moments in my life.

    Whatever happened at a Holiday Inn stayed in the Holiday Inn....:eusa_angel:

    Don't even ask what happens after an award show.


    But a child in school with teachers outing her? Dear lord, what have we become?

    It's wrong.

    Surely you jest.

    Holy freaking toledo. Being outted to your parents for any reason is horrid.

    I am seriously thankful I was an only child because I witnessed too many of my friends getting nailed by a sibling.



    I'm lucky my dad liked rock n roll otherwise I'd have been grounded for life for the shit I pulled growing up.

    Yes, the horror of your parents knowing what you are doing and being there to guide you. The terror at the thought...
