Girl kicks abusive teacher in the groin
you fucking go girl
Depending on the situation, this could be a teacher showing righteous anger and a spoiled brat unable to take criticism assaulting him for telling her she was wrong. What if she beat the shit out of some kid or bullied someone or stole the teachers stuff or ANY ONE OF A MILLION DIFFERENT REASONS THERE ARE FOR YELLING AT A CHILD. Don’t celebrate violence without a back story. Really, you shouldn’t celebrate violence at all, since her violent behavior is inappropriate either way.
You are way off base.
There is no such thing as an adult showing “righteous anger” to a child in front of a room of people, in a school setting, by public humiliation or by laying hands onto a child; especially if that child is not your own.
This teacher is at fault, no matter the situation. I don’t care if she lit another student on fire, he is going about her punishment the absolute wrong way, and she reacted appropriately.
In a school setting, you do not ever lay hands on a child. Ever. Pointing into her head, shaking her, these things are never alright, no matter what she may or may not have done.
Public humiliation is never an option. It isn’t effective; it doesn’t do anything but breed negativity, fear of authority, and fear of being wrong.
She also may not have DONE anything. You have no idea either, but you’re taking the side of an adult abusing a child? You criticize me for celebrating violence- what exactly do you call what that he is doing to her? He is treating her abusively, in a room full of people. He is humiliating her, shaking her, scaring her. It’s frightening that you can’t read her body language. FYI: It is screaming “STOP”.
He deserved what he got; she stood up for herself as best she thought she could when the situation dictated that she should.I have nothing to add.syntosenis a hero, and absolutely correct. We do not violate the children. Violence is not an option.
I never would have had the guts to shrug off his hand on my shoulder at her age - much less kick him anywhere.
Something very similar happened to me at camp when I was nine or ten. I was terrified and horribly embarrassed. I did nothing but stand still in response.
When that occurred to me as I read this, realizing that I couldn’t have reacted as she did, it scared me to death as a mother.
I would want to have that man fired or worse if he had done that to either one of my (imperfect) sons. And I would defend their actions to the school as warranted if they stood up for themselves as I hope they would.
I need to be sure they understand that on principle.
You’re all wrong.
Obviously she kicked him for mixing a plaid with a diamond pattern.
You can see her fashion sense is impeccable.
Soccer fans call it brave goalkeeping, the act of springing into a star shape in front of an attacker who is about to kick the ball as hard as possible toward the goal. As I shuffled from the field, bent forward, eyes watering, waiting for the excruciating whack of pain in my crotch to metamorphose into a gut-wrenching ache, I thought only stupid goalkeeping. But after the fourth customary slap on the back from a teammate chortling, “Hope you never wanted kids, pal,” I thought only stupid, stupid testicles.
Natural selection has sculpted the mammalian forelimb into horses’ front legs, dolphins’ fins, bats’ wings, and my soccer ball-catching hands. Why, on the path from the primordial soup to us curious hairless apes, did evolution house the essential male reproductive organs in an exposed sac? It’s like a bank deciding against a vault and keeping its money in a tent on the sidewalk.

It’s cute that Alterra, UWM, and MKE are on here. Milwaukee, represent!
What?! No “poopin, boner, balls”?
YOUR INFOGRAPHIC IS INVALID.
Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups are nice, but…
I found something better. Allow me to share it with you.
First you need access to a Lindt factory outlet store. There, you will occasionally find hazelnut shell imperfections. I don’t know why they don’t just melt them down and try again, but I’m glad they don’t. Getting a bargain on Lindt chocolate just because they think it’s imperfect is fine with me.
The label has nutrition “facts” on it. Pay no mind. These don’t concern you.
Open that sucker up and let the good
times chocolate roll.
Now grab one of those yummy globes and locate the deep dent,
not the shallow dent,
because the chocolate on the side with the deep dent is thinner. You’ll need the structural integrity on the bottom for the next step. Smear the deep dent side with the peanut butter of your choice.
Now chomp down on that thing, biting off as little of the chocolate as you can.
It usually ends up being about half the ball no matter what you do. Now fill it up with more peanut butter.
I think you know what to do next…
Being imperfections, some of them wind up being half-shells with thick chocolate at the bottom. You can skip the first step with these and get right to the fillening and gobbling.
