Going overboard with sexual harassment

Have you heard the story about the 9-year-old Gastonia boy who said his teacher was cute and then got suspended from school?

He's been Herman Cain'ed, accused of sexual harassment and everything, and he's only 9. Here's the back story, as reported by WSOC:

Chiquita Lockett said her 9-year-old son, Emanyea, spent the last two days at home.

Lockett said the principal of Brookside Elementary called her Wednesday to say the incident was a form of “sexual harassment.”

Emanyea told Eyewitness News a substitute teacher overheard him tell another student a teacher was cute.

The boy didn't touch the teacher and didn't even tell the teacher to her face that he thought she was "cute."

To save face explain their actions, the Gaston County School sent Lockett a letter explaining why a 9-year-old saying a teacher is cute constitutes sexual harassment.

In the letter, school officials say Emanyea Lockett said a teacher was fine in a suggestive tone. He said he told a friend she was cute.

The district says the comment is considered a form of sexual harassment.

What does a 9-year-old know about "suggestive language"? It seems that the adults are the ones with their minds in the gutter. Raise your hand if you never had a crush on a teacher while in grade school.
