Love, Debbie Downer xox
Has anyone seen the vids that Florida teacher posts on Tik Tok? She is clearly not well.
Can you be more specific?
I’m not on TikTok because I’m an adult.
I just followed the link provided in the Guardian story. Did you read it? You can see for yourself.
I watched two and one half minutes of the 6.
She does seem a few apples short of a bushel.
She also knew exactly what she was doing showing that movie.
Guess she found the trouble that she was looking for.
Did you read about the obese tiny ticked ex president found guilty of sexual molestation and his silly name calling is costing him 5 million dollars and that all his so called religious followers are still supporting this douchebag? And the stories of him lying constantly like most people breathe. It is unbelievable how gullible some rubes are. Thinking they fooled anyone going on sites to troll, dumbass
I read the Guardian story. I saw nothing negative or controversial about anything the teacher was reported to have done or said, on TikTok or elsewhere. What are you referring to?
She showed an animated film. It’s about an explorer and his son who explore the world around them. Sort of an Indiana Jones without the danger. As one site describes: “Throughout the film, the message of accepting others is strongly pushed. For example, Jaeger Clade cannot accept that Searcher Clade does not want to be an explorer. This disagreement is what leads to them falling apart. 25 years later, Searcher Clade does the same with his son, Ethan, who wants to be an explorer. In the finale, the Clades are able to put their differences aside during their expedition and finally accept each other.”
There are people of various races depicted positively and there is one, extraordinarily brief scene in which the son, Ethan, who is multiracial, says he has a crush on another guy, to which his grandfather makes a quick comment about how to impress him. And that’s it. That’s the gay content, the only gay content. It’s a sweet little moment of acceptance which, of course, is enough to get the Million Moms (all 3 of them) and their knee-jerk pearl-clutching nut job friends to have fainting spells and rush to their Facebook pages demanding the teacher be drawn and quartered in the town square.
barryaksarben, He was found guilty in a civil trial, where the burden of proof is much much lower. He’ll appeal and we’ll see if it holds up. If she was to traumatized by this event, then why did she tweet on April 22, 2012 “I’m a MASSIVE Apprentice fan.” ??
Talk about somebody who is not clearly well. You’re such a loser.
DeaconMac, She is making a fool of herself on those videos. She doesn’t seem like a rational person with her dressing up and acting like a child.
As far as what she did, she is strictly forbidden from doing that in the Florida education curriculum. She says she got all the parents signatures on letters allowing her to show the students PG films, but in Florida she has to also notify the parents if there is gay/trans/sexual content in the film, which she failed to do. She knew what she was doing was wrong, but did it anyway.
Why would anyone look for a link or video that Sahver would recommend? You really are pathetic. BTW, Desantis needs a new poolboy—you’d be perfect. I’m sure his wife will cater to all of your desires.
No, I think she’s fine. I thought there must be someone else who isn’t well, besides ShaverC that is.
Y’all know Shavers hyping anti-gay fascist politician DeSantis, right?
Someone please tell her that Olive Garden is hiring. Imagine……..all the Tirimisu and rubbery ch parm you can eat.
abfab, You think people who work at Olive Garden are lesser than you? Good to know.
You’re lesser than me.
She’s fine. I certainly don’t think we need homophobes like you telling us what is mentally healthy.
Isn’t Chris Appleton a hairstylist?
Obviously not a good one, judging from the poor kid’s lid.
well, he is so much more successful than shaver and got a very cute talented husband there instead of the lonely sad existence of shavers
Shaver gets plucked…he doesn’t know how to shave.
Shaver has no hair at all, hence his name.
Someone here once called her duller than a bag of hair. I think that fits.
SEX probably seems mild these days.
The big tour is coming up soon.
Have they finished deflating her head yet?
Yes, they have. Happy now?
She’s Madonna, her head doesn’t care what you think.
I’ll never forget the release. Ted Kopple had her on NIGHTLINE and the show lasted 3 hours. FAB!
And the same GOP TROLLS said the sky was falling because Madonna showed some skin.
Any chance we can be a little more specific on ‘some’ proceeds going to charity?
She should call Martha Stewart to see who does her work.
Quick response to drumpf. Just kill the MFkr.
