A Florida high school student was expelled and arrested after she continued to carry on a same-sex relationship with a minor student after she turned 18.
Kaitlyn Hunt was arrested in February at the behest of her 15-year-old girlfriend’s parents and charged with two felony counts of lewd and lascivious battery of a child 12 to 16 years old.
A judge ruled that Hunt could still go to her Sebastian, Fla., school if she did not have contact with the 15-year-old. Unhappy with that decision, the girlfriend’s parents also made an appeal to the school board, and Hunt was then expelled from Sebastian River High School just weeks before her graduation.
Her mother, Kelley Hunt Smith, claims State Attorney Brian Workman offered her daughter a plea deal that she has until Friday to accept or face trial. The plea deal includes “two years house arrest and one year probation.”
Her father, Steven R. Hunt, said the school disapproved of the relationship from the beginning. Hunt reportedly had good grades and participated in cheerleading, chorus and basketball. She was voted “most school spirited.” But when she began dating another girl from the basketball team, her coach dropped her citing that the relationship would cause “drama.”
Hunt’s family started a petition on Change.org asking people to “Stop the prosecution of 18 year old girl in a same-sex relationship” and calling it a “cruel waste of our taxes.” The petition, addressed to the Indian River County State Attorney’s Office, has more than 28,500 signatures so far.
“They are out to destroy my daughter, because they feel like she ‘made’ their daughter gay,” Smith said. “They see being gay as wrong and they blame my daughter. Of course, I see it 100 percent differently. I don’t see or label these girls as gay. They are teenagers in high school experimenting with their sexuality – with mutual consent. And even if their daughter is gay, who cares? She is still their daughter.”
Some other information: the 15 year old’s mother initially said that the relationship was fine as long as it was consensual. But the minute Kaitlyn turned 18, she was filing charges against her. If found guilty, she faces jail time or house arrest and will be labeled as sex offender for the rest of her life.
HTHTHITHIHISHISIHS MAKE S ME SO ANGRY I USUALLY TRY TO REFRAIN FROM ADDING ON TO THIS KIND OF STUFF BUT??? THE FACT THAT SHE COULD POSSIBLY BE LABELED AS A SEX OFFENDER FOR BEING IN A CONSENSUAL RELATIONSHIP WITH SOMEONE OF THE SAME SEX THATS PROBABLY ONLY 2 OR 3 YEARS YOUNGER AT THE MOST IF FUCKING DISGUSTING. SOOOO MANY MEN GET AWAY WITH NONCONSENSUAL RAPE WITH MINIMAL CHARGES AND THIS SWEET GIRL MAY HAVE HER ENTIRE LIFE RUINED FOR DATING SOMEONE ONLY A FEW YEARS YOUNGER THAN HER IS FUCKING DISGUSTING. THIS WOULDNT BE A PROBLEM IF IT WAS A BOY/GIRL RELATIONSHIP BECAUSE I SEE THAT SHIT ALL THE TIME AT SCHOOL AND AS LONG AS THEY ARE HAPPY AND HAVING A HEALTHY RELATIONSHIP ITS NO ONES FUCKING BUSINESS
teachers who complain about grading work
are you fucking kidding me.
no you sit the fuck down.
LET ME EXPLAIN YOU A THING
do you know how hard it is to be a teacher in the current economy? do you know what it’s like to frantically prepare students for standardized tests that contain literally nothing you feel like they need to learn but you have to ensure that they score well on them otherwise not only could you lose your job but also the school could lose funding
which means that funding for resources like
- subsidized lunches
- computers for the lab
- the fucking librarian’s fucking salary
could dry up?
do you know what it would be like to be hired expecting twenty children in a class but then half of your colleagues get fired so you suddenly have forty children in a class? and then if you’re an average middle or high school teacher you have five or six or sometimes seven classes?
yeah in case you can’t do math because you were too busy making fun of your teacher to pay attention, that’s 200 or 240 or fucking 280 students. and at least 75% of them turn in every assignment. and then you have to grade them, knowing that if you don’t assign x amount of papers your class could get audited and, unless you have tenure (which some teachers now don’t get until seven years after they have the job - that’s SEVEN FUCKING YEARS OF NOT KNOWING IF YOU’RE GOING TO HAVE A JOB THE FOLLOWING YEAR) you could lose your job if the administration doesn’t find your class adequate?
also, on top of grading papers, some districts require teacher regularly undergo retraining for students with disabilities, students with english as a second language, sexual assault counseling, bullying prevention, and community relations? and they’re supposed to do all of this on an average salary of $45,000 a year (which is only slightly more than one year of university, aka in order to pay for their undergrad student loans plus their grad school loans they would have to do nothing but pay down loans with their salaries for six fucking years and not buy food or shelter)?
also, side note: teachers do not ever “get the summer off.” they’re planning the shit out of the school year, and attending training days, and researching ways to make their teaching more effective, and handling panicking parents whose students will be entering their classes next year. “summer off” my ass. teachers work as hard during the summer as they do during the school year.
people on this website complain about being stressed out for a lot of things - some serious, some not.
but imagine the stress of having in your care the education of over two hundred people while paying off an astronomical debt to do an often thankless job
AND THEN GIVE ME SOME PISSANT MEME OF A CRYING GIRL YOU FUCKERS
a lovely explanation for why the op can go fuck themself.
Morphological Typology (illustrations from SpecGram)
Descriptions adapted from The Lingua File:Analytic languages: also known as isolating languages because they’re composed of isolated, or free, morphemes. Free morphemes can be words on their own, such as cat or happy. Languages that are purely analytic in structure don’t use any prefixes or suffixes, ever. However, it’s rare to find a language that is purely analytic or synthetic since most languages have characteristics of both. Morphological typology is like a spectrum in which languages fit in somewhere from analytic to polysynthetic (a subtype of synthetic languages we’ll get to in a moment).Types of synthetic language (i.e. languages that have prefixes/suffixes):Fusional Languages: Similar to agglutinating languages, except that the morpheme boundaries are much more difficult to discern. Affixes are often fused with the stems, and can have multiple meanings. A prime example of a fusional language is Spanish, especially when it comes to verbs. In the wordhablo ”I speak”, the -o morpheme tells us that we’re dealing with a subject that is singular, first person, and in the present tense. It’s difficult to find a morpheme that means “speak”, however, since habl- is not a morpheme. Fusional languages can be tricky!Polysynthetic Languages: These languages are undoubtedly some of the most difficult to learn. They often have verbs that can express the entirety of a typical sentence in English, which they do by incorporating nouns into verbs forms. For example, the Sora language of India has one word that means “I will catch a tiger”. Many Native American languages are polysynthetic.
depression is when you don’t really care about anything
anxiety is when you care too much about everything
and having both is just like what

Eurovision feels like watching your grandparents go wild, singing songs about their youth and getting drunk with their old folks: you don’t understand anything, but it’s still hysterical to watch.
