Recently, a young girl was punished by her school for hitting a boy in class. While a setup like that does not seem like a big deal, the story is bigger than that.
And now that her mother knows why she hit the boy, she is ready to go ten rounds with the school for what they did to her daughter.
The unidentified girl had been sitting in front of a boy in class who was pulling on the back of her bra and snapping her. When the girl complained to the teacher, the instructor reportedly told her to “ignore it.”
She continued to tell the boy to stop, and the next thing she knows, the boy undid the girls bra. At that point she turned around and hit him.
It was then that the teacher and school administrators stepped in. However, instead of punishing the boy for, what could easily been presented as sexual assault, they decided that the girl had no justification in hitting him.
And that is when her mother stepped into the ring.
After the principal called her in to discuss the girl’s actions, accusing her of attacking another student, the mother went on the offense, saying “No, she defended herself against a sexual attack from another pupil. Look at them; He’s a foot taller than her and twice as heavy. If the person who was supposed to help and protect her in a classroom couldn’t be bothered what should she have done?”
Calling the boy’s actions “sexual assault”, she stated that she would be pressing charges. The school administrators then admonished her for overreacting, with one teacher saying “I don’t think it was that serious,” and a school behavioral counselor saying “Let’s not over-react.”
Of course, that might be the last thing you should say to a mother whose daughter is being punished for defending herself against sexual assault. Especially when there were adult authority figures present who could have easily stopped the incident .
The mother responded “You let him do this? Why didn’t you stop him? Come over here and let me touch the front of your trousers,” the mother said to the teacher, who said no. “Does that seem inappropriate to you? Why don’t you go and pull on Mrs. [Counselor]’s bra right now. See how fun it is for her,” she added.
