Truer words have never been spoken Sir Isaac Newton. And we Americans have proved it time and time again with our progression.
Industrial Revolution? Yeah that was us. What did we do? We revolutionized manufacturing. We turned refining oil into gasoline. We reinvented transit and commerce. We reinvented banking. We invented the assembly line. We forced men to work for slave wages while dying an early death at the average age of 39. We caused many “work place incidents”. We invented “capitalism” and “greed” at the cost of lives, and human suffering. But at least we were progressing.
The reaction? Well, on a negative note we introduced this world to pollution. We introduced speculation. We introduced class warfare. On a positive note, we introduced the world to Unions. We introduced the world to the middle class. We introduced the world to regulations and Governmental organizations such as OSHA and the EPA. OHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! How Evil. But what’s destroying this country? Is it the action, or the reaction?
Have we progressed past the point of common sense? When we speak of the GOP and the Tea Party, it’s easy for us to see the divide between “Them” and “Us”. They are Conservatives that want to go back to the “Good old days” All we want to do is progress into the future, right? Because progress is good. We are the reaction to their action, or are we? I am now going to paste an article that I recently read.
According to an agitated poster in Reddit’s “gaybros” forum, high school senior and Sean Cody model “Noel” has allegedly been suspended and will not graduate this year after several of his bareback flicks found their way onto the principal’s desk.
The poster, who identifies himself as the cousin of Noel’s classmate, claims the budding gay porn model (and certified hottie) has been “severely bullied” since fellow classmates discovered his side job and instead of helping, school administrators have suspended him for 10 days for “causing a campus disturbance.”
His suspension will allegedly lead to “an automatic failure from absences,” and he will not be able to graduate come June.
The post continues:
Several students planned to protest by wearing support shirts, making posters, and skipping a class. The principle [sic] is threatening to automatically expel any student who joins in.
Uh, where’s the ACLU in all of this? An of-age gay porn model partakes in a completely legal activity off school grounds, and the school decides it has the authority to ruin his life? Sorry, Mr. Principal, that’s not how life works.
Or, as the top-rated commenter puts it:
A public high school is required to accept all students within its attendance boundaries and while it can suspend or expel students for disciplinary problems, it cannot punish students for lawful activities. For example, high schools cannot punish students for drinking or smoking in property not owned by the school district provided the students are abiding by federal, state, and local law as well as any lawful restrictions imposed by the property owner.
From what it sounds like, the school is punishing “Noel” for participating in a lawful activity which some of the students, faculty, and staff don’t believe he should legally be allowed to do. The latter isn’t “Noel”‘s problem and it’s the [public] school’s job to make sure that he is not harassed during the time he is on school property or participating in school sponsored activities.
Assuming this is a public school, the ACLU will likely want to get involved and the school could possibly be sued for violating the Equal Protection clause of the 14th Amendment. As there is no requirement that one be gay/bi to work in gay porn, any lack of a nondiscrimination policy concerning sexual orientation should not be an issue.
Let’s get on it, gays! A certain principal’s days are numbered and we can’t wait to plaster this sucker’s face all over the Internet next to the words GAY PORN.
The action? For anyone who might not know me well enough. I am an LGBT activist, which all started when a close family member came out to me as being gay. Prior to that, I never gave much thought to homosexuality. I could honestly care less if a man wanted penis or a woman wanted vagina. But after the whole coming out shit with this kid, I felt compelled to act and I would like to say that I was a very small part of making gay marriage legal in Illinois.
Anyhow, you read the caption. It was copy and pasted everywhere on FaceBook. I read one where a girl commented, “If I were his parents, I would sue the shit out of that school”. My family member posted a message saying, “This is what’s wrong with America”. And he included a link to this pasted article. After reading it, I decided to do a little experiment of my own. I chose ten people. Five female, five male. Five Republicans, five Democrats. I forwarded the article from Queerty and asked their opinions and it was shocking.
The five “Conservative” friends preached to me about Jesus, the horrors of homos, and how this kid should have been expelled. The five “Progressive” friends all told me that the parents should sue for discrimination. Did you read me? Sue for discrimination.
PROGRESS! There you have it. We have finally gotten to the point in this country where websites dedicated to all sorts of minorities outnumber white supremacy. But did we really progress? You read the article, I hope. I copied and pasted it after all. And maybe you saw it on Facebook.
Now for the reaction. I wasn’t surprised by my “Conservative” friend’s reactions. Reason being? They are Jesus retards……….What surprised me the most was the Liberal reactions. Or should I say Progressive? It’s the schools fault? His parents should file a lawsuit! Really asshole? The one thing I have never heard in this debate. The one argument never raised, why is a high school kid doing porn? It wasn’t on Facebook. It wasn’t in the Queerty article. And it was never asked by the ten people I communicated with.
That is how far we as a country have progressed. One side argues against homosexuality, gay marriage, and this high school retard. While the progressive side defends his homosexuality. Defends gay marriage. Defends his porn.
So, the equal and opposite reaction of industrialization? A huge group of people picking between only two political parties. One side saying, “That’s disgusting, he should be expelled!” While the other group screams,”He did nothing wrong, the parents should sue!”
Let’s remember, This is a seventeen year old porn star.
