Well said. Well you know, if you want to be all serious about everything. :-)

Actually, I quite agree with much of this, and that's what I was getting at. I have no problem with the school frowning upon this. I'm ok with a mandatory assembly denouncing sexual harrassment. If it can indeed be proven that the ballots or list were produced or distributed on school property, I could even see detention or similar disciplinary action. But even as far as sexual harassment goes, this is just extremely tame. So I can't see taking actual legal action. I understand that some people are more sensitive to sexual harassment than others. I understand that there are different views of appropriateness. That said, I think its wrong to infringe upon one student's constitutional rights to make another student feel better. In the end, no damage was done to these girls. None at all. Maybe they feel bad, and that's a shame. But they weren't actually injured. They weren't actually even permanently emotionally harmed. There was no malice behind it. Its a tough world, out there. High school is supposed to prepare you for that. I'm of the belief that overly punishing these boys won't at all teach them a lesson other than perhaps a mistrust of the system and in reality will have the ultimate effect of giving the girls who were "victems" unrealistic views of society and the world, thus making them more fragile and susceptible to harassment in the future. In any case, I'm quite certain that if this goes much further, the ACLU will be all over it.
