Actual charges? Probably really really slim.
The scare of charges? Higher than really really slim.

Though still not high.

Not at a level that we should give it any concern

The idea of a shitstorm is possible but only in the literal definition of the word "possible."

It is NOT going to happen.

Something of the extreme picture Martino is painting?  Not a chance.  All of us having our reputations sullied in the eyes of a certain number of administrators and parents if someone actually pulls out this lesson plan in a school or hakwan near you?  Very good.

True, but I'm sure whatever guy back in 200-whatever that snapped those pics of him and some girls at the club thought the same thing...

Martino the Korea panic doomer. What's going on? Worlds are colliding. Human sacrifice. Dogs and cats living together. Mass hysteria!!!

Yes, but why weren't just the offending comments removed and the sound advice left?  That's the part that confuses me.  And now it's been left up and locked, which, as DMart says, seems to be an endorsement.  Forget whether you agree or disagree with Pride celebrations.  We all know that if anyone does this with little kids there is going to be blowback for that teacher.  And it very well may be blowback, especially at a hakwan, that gets them swiftly booted.  The mod that wiped the entire thread and locked it should be explaining their decision.  They seem to have gone A.W.O.L. on this.  It's clearly something that has drawn a lot of attention from a variety of the waygook community, so what's with the silence?  Dumb things done by one or two teachers affect the whole teaching community over here.  They don't look at it as isolated instances, but rather as an indication of all our behaviours.  ESL teachers have a vested interest in some idiot NOT using those materials.  We're not just shooting the sh*t on this one. 

Because one of the moderators (not Kyndo) seems to think he's judge, jury, and executioner.  And by the way if someone opposes certain lifestyles due to their faith, that does not make them a 'bigot'.  Christian, Muslim, and maybe some other faiths too.  But no one has the right in modern democratic society to interfere with how consenting adults live with each other as long as they don't force it on each other.  Have whatever view you want, but don't be a dick about it.  The mod went too far.  Otherwise mind your own business.  But forcing it or any kind of sexuality on innocent kids is a bridge too far.  Ron DeSantis got it right in Florida.

If you want to be gay or trans or whatever, fine, but you knew when even Liberal Bill Maher talks about it, it has gone too far.

I also nominate Aristocrat as the next person to be caught accidentally falling on a penis. But he should still be allowed to express his opinion.

While not doubting the validity of this prediction and sanctity of free speech, one cannot forget the need to maintain the esteemed reputation of our profession in Korea.  :blank:

Dude, you have nothing to add to this. You spent half a thread with homophobic crap, going on about how BTS fans must be teeny girls or gay.

At least Aristocrat was straight-up with his views and not some two-face.

And we wonder why there are so few younger NETs and women in the comments...

Not really sure why my comment was deleted. I'm personally very much in favour of the gays even though I forget what all of their letters stand for these days, and I would fully support Aristocrat regardless of what he ended up falling on.

I can only assume there's something going on between him and VI.

I too was an admirer of Aristocrat . His sanctimonious indignation was priceless irrespective of his sexual identity but I can understand how his somewhat extreme views would have earned the censure of the moderators.  If he returns it would be wise of him to work on his tone. He has struggled with this in past if I recall correctly.

Well, I appreciate Aristocrat. He was the first person to call me a nerd. 60 years of waiting for such a compliment. Though he didn't mean it in a nice way...oh well, I'll take it.

At the end of the day we all know Aristocrat is better than us, because he told us so often. All of his lifestyle choices were better than ours.  I'll also miss how he can work his sprinting regimen into almost any conversation.
