Quick updaterness…

To Tyra’s comment post about the defamation article, I unfortunately must side with the principal. I’m often forced into a situation where I become an authority figure to adults AND children. I face lewd defamation daily but unsatisfied people who act like babies when they don’t get their way. I agree, to a point, that even kids should be allowed freedom of speech, especially on a forum that is generally limited to their own peers (like MySpace is), however, by posting photos of this woman that implied questionable behavior and homosexuality on her part, along with her name, does warrant a defamation suit. Imagine if someone you don’t know well posted such a thing about you, photo and name, with such an embarrassing accusation. As a person who supervises children all day long, an accusation such as that one could have made members of the PTA nervous (not everyone is comfortable with homosexuality) and potentially caused embarrassment for her family.

If comments made about this woman had been limited to part-of her name (not full use of her entire name) or a reference to her job title without her name, even allowing mention of the school name (although I would caution against allowing children even into their teens to post any information about where they live) and no photos of her, a defamation suit would have been unwarranted. But this act by these kids was like putting her face and her name up on cnn.com over a list of accusations for the whole world to see and judge.

That’s my two cents. Poor woman, I hope she wins.
