    Link: Teacher Suspended For Starring In Gay Porn - It is not illegal & was done in between teaching jobs, but it is causing an uproar. Should he still be allowed to teach?

    Been over this before. Who cares? Is he doing a good teaching job? Then leave him alone. Fire him because he`s gay. After all, that`s what he does, right?

    This is outrageous. The news station, and the school board should both be ashamed of themselves. Nobody knew about it, it was not interfering with the teaching of his students, it was utterly irrelevant.

    And yet "Fox undercover" had to go and dig it up and get him suspended from his job.

    I`m sickened by this.

    I would fire him, not because he is gay, but because he showed a serious lack of judgement in appearing in porn movies. Like it or not, teachers are role models and are held to a higher standard of moral behavior than some professions (lawyers, real estate agents, and car salesmen.)

    I totally agree about Fox News and how they pretend to be all for the public good when it`s all about ratings. BUT, Fox merely dug up the dirt, because the dirt was there to be dug. It`s maybe not a good idea to make a porn movie that anyone can buy if you think there might be issues when the facts are made public.

    This is drating disgusting. Not him, what he does in his spare time is up to him. As long as the kids aren`t subjected to it who cares? If he teaches under age then they can`t see it legally, and if he teaches over age then there is no problem. He didn`t drag this up, they did. drat you fox.

    Why`d they have to put clips? I`m intrigued now and want to watch it :( Whoever called him out for this is a jerk. Being in a porn movie when you`re not a teacher shouldn`t make it impossible to work imo. It has nothing to do with his teaching. Unless it was one of those old perv with barely legal teens or something, then you might question whether he`s doing something like that with the students.

    @ bomb tom - 4Q , you`re an idiot

    That`s said, I am torn. On the one hand no laws were broken and there are no victims so who cares.

    But on the other hand we have to take the consequences of our actions. Hitch rooster was an idiot. He knew he`d get fired if it was ever found out and why gamble away a career to get rocks off on camera? Dumb Dumb Dumb. The internet is NOT known for keeping secrets.

    P.S. Ambushing people with camera`s is tacky.

    Anyone else read this as `fired for staring at gay porn`?

    If this remained unknown, then I`d have no problem. But now that he`s been outted, I don`t see how the students won`t eventually find out about it and how that can`t possibly affect his ability to teach. Were it college, it`d be a different story, but we`re dealing with minors here and hormonally fueled, gossipy high-schoolers at that.

    I`d feel no differently about this if it were a female teacher who`d done straight porn. Ultimately, I`d leave it up to the school district and/or parents to decide. If it were my kid, I`d want a different teacher.

    Not sure how I feel about the media reporting on this, but it is at least a factual event that parents would probably want to know about...and not the typical op-ed crap that passes for news these days.

    Doesn`t surprise me in the least that a Faux "News" reporter was in the gay section of a porn store.

    For all my joking around, I have the utmost respect for people that are willing to be openly gay.

    Those faggots at Faux "News" need to stop taking their sexuality issues out on other people.

    He did nothing illegal, and he`s clearly doing his job fairly well, otherwise he wouldn`t be head of the English department now would he? Unless some students started coming forward with sexual assault stories, there`s no reason that the porn vids should have been relevant.

    To all the people touting gay rights: GROW UP.

    I do not give one s**t that he is gay.
    What I do care about, is the fact that he IS A PORNSTAR.
    Not a `gay` pornstar, but that he is a pornstar, period.
    Do you honestly think any students would be able to take him seriously? NO. Therefore, kids won`t perform (no pun intended) as well as they would have with a different teacher.
    Seriously, you ridiculous GDIs. PORNSTAR. TEACHING YOUR KIDS. You ok with that? Alright, let me get Sasha Grey or some other `star` to teach your kids and lets see if they actually pay attention.

    PORNSTAR. TEACHING YOUR KIDS. You ok with that?
    Does he have a teaching degree?

    Does he have references that show that he is a capable teacher?

    Does he DO HIS JOB?

    Then what`s the problem? As long as he`s, you know, TEACHING and not "performing" while at school, then there is no issue as far as I`m concerned.

    As for "students taking him seriously," he obviously commands some degree of respect considering his position in the school and the opinion the couple parents had of him before they learned of this. It`s not like he`s "Generic Teacher #5," he has to have SOME ability in order to build himself up that quickly in this world where students don`t take school seriously anyway.

    I had a guy that worked at my high school as a substitute teacher, and I had heard a rumor that he was an ex porn camera man. I asked him once in private when he was a sub for my class and all he said was to "keep it quiet" because he doesn`t want it getting around too much. Not sure if he was just messing with me or not but he seemed like he very possibly could have been one.

    Seems kind of like cherry-picking to me. Granted this indiscretion is more public than most, but of the many high school teachers that are friends of mine, they all engage in less `reputable` behaviours such as when my one friend was writing report card comments while very drunk. They just don`t get caught.

    If you had a class full of racist white kids, would you suspend or fire their black teacher because they`re not listening to him?

    Porn stars are people too. This economy is getting rough on people. Being in a porn or two or three is a good way to make easy cash(sometimes LOTS of cash). There`s no need to judge people who had some low income moments. Obviously he`s trying to move on with his life and start a career. There`s no reason why he shouldn`t be allowed to do so. Just my two cents on this bs.

    So... who brought it to someone`s attention that he was in a gay porn? We all know it was someone very stupid, and possibly gay themselves for looking. No one seems to check sources anymore before spilling stupid banter that really doesn`t apply to anything but their ratings.

    Micheal Jackson, sick freak? F*ck yes, but did he molest those boys? No.

    Kobe Bryant, accused of beating a woman. Didn`t actually happen.

    Justin Beiber, accused of having sex and producing a child. This one makes me laugh, he`s under no real legal scrutiny other than the fact that he might have to pay a small portion to support the child while the woman faces possible statutory rape charges. Will the kid be his? Would be hilarious but its probably not.

    Now, can anyone name who any of these victims were off the top of their head, Bieber doesn`t count, that`s current.

    Nothing? Of course, because no one in the end will actually question who was truly wrong and admit they r

    this whole thing is ridiculous - posing in porn of any kind should have no bearing what so ever on kids. if posed with kids, that would be different. i hate it when people bring up morality - but have no definition of it. so they put their own meaning.

    if he posed in an underwear ad, would that be ok? if he was a priest but raped a child - would that be ok? there are so many ways to ask it. it just amazes me that people would react in this way.

    is he a good teacher? yes? then ok. his past has no relevance. he did this to make some money. i can`t believe that all teachers need to have a strong moral character, whatever that means.

    What the hell is an ex-pornstar going to do which may alter these students health and/or safety.
    I seriously doubt he`s teaching the kids Gay porn tricks, I think he should keep teaching.

    If he was doing it at the same time as teaching, that`s when there may of been a problem.
