>I just had to make a comment. My comment is: Are you all mad??! She is a
>public school teacher, responsible for little children. Taking nude
>pictures is not the issue. Posting them on a public internet site is the
>issue!! Come on people! Nude! Public! Accessable to everyone. Have we
>lost all sense of moral compass? Would YOU post nude pictures of yourself
>on a public website for all to see? At the very LEAST, she is an
>exhibitionist. It never ceases to amaze me that people cannot think
>clearly. The issue is NOT: freedom of speech, nudity as art, her right to
>pubish nude photos of herself. The issue IS: A public school teacher,
>young and beautiful, posting public nude pictures of herself for the world
>to see and teaching young kids. PUBLIC ON A WEBSITE, NUDE. She wanted
>strangers to see her naked. You do not post yourself nude on a website and
>then cry foul when it gets seen by people who shouldn't see it, like little
>children. It is a moral issue. NOT THE RIGHT TO PHOTOGRAPH HERSELF, the
>moral issue is being a public exhibitionist and a public school teacher at
>the same time. Do I want my kids having a teacher with the total lack of
>common sense, and the exhibitionist tendencies to do such a thing? No
>thanks. The school did the right thing. In this atmosphere of sexual
>exploitation of children, don't we need to be a lot more sensitive? Look
>at the previous year and how many young female and male teachers have been
>arrested and convicted of having sex with very young kids. This country is
>sooooooo very screwed up.
