    OH..did I fail to mention....it was an inflatable penis costume.

    ------

    STEILACOOM, Wash. -- A Steilacoom student is fighting a decision by school officials to suspend him for three days after he appeared in an inflatable penis costume outside another school's homecoming dance, KIRO 7 Eyewitness News reported.

    Pioneer Middle School student James Watkins bought the costume last weekend and later showed up outside a dance at Steilacoom High School wearing the outfit.

    His parents described Watkins as a straight-A student, an athlete and a "good kid" who made a mistake. They said the three-day suspension, along with a sexual harassment citation, are too severe.

    "He wasn't even on his own school grounds," said Mark Watkins, his father. "Poor decision, I agree. Disciplinary action? I agree. I think they went way too far."

    "The thing I felt was wrong was that they weren't giving us any rights for a first offense," said Lori Watkins, James' mother. "I don't like the sexual harassment on there. That really bothers me."

    The family has spoken with representatives of the American Civil Liberties Union about possible legal action in the case.

    District officials said they disagreed, but wouldn't talk about the incident because of student confidentiality.

    Pioneer Middle School student James Watkins' parents obviously did not love him enough to beat him when he was little...

    Seriously though, more power to the kid to have that kind of balls. Thats quite possibly the funniest thing ive ever seen. I wonder if a girl would have gotten sexual harrassment for wearing an inflatable vagina costume?

    ya, but after yelling at you they would have went to a back room and laughed their asses off. At least mine would have. My husband started laughing right away and we have a son in middle school.

    I agree with the suspension, but not the sexual harrasement and certainly not legal action. Come on, it was a stupid joke/stunt, that's all.

    Let's not forget the lewd and lascivious liberal society that this kid is growing up in. Kids are not growing up in a void. They are bombarded with sex from all sides these days. Heck, in Seattle here we've even got builders building penis-similar buildings up at one another. And during Halloween there is always a group of prostitutes (ok, Madonna wannabees) at my door. :boobies:

    You're right..and when adults ask, "what is wrong with kids these days?", we need to get in their face and say "LOOK IN THE F'ING MIRROR"!

    Right....and then we need to stomp out pornography and destroy the ACLU perverts in the process.

    And bring back God into the schools.

    there is quite a difference between being perverted and sexually harrassing vs just being a stupid kid doing stupid kid things...yes he should have paid the price for stupidity...but charging him with sexual harrassment...geez...if this is the standard...well "shit howdy" we are all guilty...Judges included!
