You will of course remember the massive amounts of gay blog coverage Tennessee’s Don’t Say Gay Bill received when it passed a Senate Panel last month. The bill, and those like it, seek to pretend gay people don’t exist as a means of creating an agreed up societal morality. Or something…
Shelby County Sheriff’s Office detectives arrested Stacy L. Hopkins late Thursday and charged the 28-year-old teacher with two counts of statutory rape by an authority figure and two counts of soliciting sexual exploitation of a minor.
An assistant principal at Arlington told authorities Thursday that she got a call from Hopkins’ ex-boyfriend, who told her that the teacher sent nude photos of herself to the cell phones of two Arlington High students, according to a court affidavit.
The male students, now 16 and 18 years old, told school officials that they received the text messages. They also said they had sexual intercourse with the teacher, according to the affidavit. The 18-year-old was 17 when the incidents occurred.
Ah yes. It’s important to protect impressionable children from the idea that gay people exist, but Tennessee teachers are free to rape their students. I see. For the record, Hopkins has been placed on unpaid administrative leave, not fired, even though she has admitted to the statutory rape of two students in her care.
Hopkins described her relationship status as “complicated” on her Facebook page. Describing her job, she wrote, “Teaching high school students what not to do or how to do it without getting caught.” — ending it with a smiley face.
How not to get caught, indeed! At least we can all breathe a sigh of relief that she didn’t say “gay.”
