    7-Year-Old Accused Of Possible Sexual Harassment For Kicking Bully In Groin

    BOSTON (CBS) – A 7-year-old boy is being investigated by his South Boston elementary school for possible sexual harassment after kicking another boy in the crotch.

    The first grader’s mother, Tasha Lynch, says she was shocked by the school’s decision.

    “He’s 7 years old. He doesn’t know anything about sexual harassment,” she said.

    Lynch’s son, Mark Curran, said the boy that he kicked had been bullying him on the school bus ride home from Tynan Elementary last week.

    “He just all of a sudden came up to him, choked him. He wanted to take his gloves, and my son said, ‘I couldn’t breathe, so I kicked him in the testicles,’” said his mother.

    Lynch described a phone call she received from the school explaining that the case will be treated like sexual harassment, due to what it considers inappropriate touching.

    “‘Your son kicked a little boy in the testicles. We call that sexual harassment,’” Lynch said the school told her.

    I call that self defense.

    The only question I have is:

    Would the child have kicked the bully if the bully had not been bullying him?

    Seems pretty cut and dried to me.

    Once when my kid poked another kid with a pencil they called me up and said that he had stabbed another child with a pencil. I came racing to the school in a panic because I was picturing a bloody wound. When I saw the "wound" it was non existent. The only reason they knew where it was was because they put a bandaid over it and that's the "spot" there wasn't even a pencil mark on the kid.

    Pencil stab wounds can be horrible for children not to mention the fear of lead poisoning etc. I was very upset with my son who was five. He said the kid was pushing him at the table and he accidentally hit him with his pencil.

    So basically the kid was hitting my son and jabbed the pencil with his hand. They tried to say he "assaulted the other child with a weapon." According to the school the pencil was a weapon.

    I can understand their need for protection and zero tolerance etc. But they don't seem to ever get their stories right.

    100% self defense!

    BTW:
    Pencils contain no lead.
    They contain graphite.

    You can not get lead poisoning from pencils.

    Everyday we get closer to full blown idiocracy...how do we expect kids to learn to be reasonable adults when current adults handle situations like this in such a manner?

    The update to the article states:

    A 7-year-old boy accused of sexual harassment for kicking another student in the groin will be transferred to a new school in the city of Boston.

    I don't blame this mother 1 bit!

    She's moving both of her kids to another school.
    They will not go to school until the transfer is complete. Should take around 2 days.

    He was defending himself!

    Its funny how adults put a sexual spin on everything. That kid probably just kicked at someone who was hurting him. Its the adults with single track minds that had to label it with something sexual.
