Today we are sad to bring you yet another one of those stories that sound so completely demented and unbelievable that it would likely have been left on the cutting room floor of a dystopian movie script. And yet it’s true, and it comes to us from a very unlikely location. At a public high school in El Paso, Texas, an English teacher was caught on video telling a group of students that they cannot refer to pedophiles as pedophiles. She commanded her students to refer to them as “MAPs,” or “minor-attracted persons.” Not being satisfied with that, she further chastised one of the students to not “judge people just because they wanna have sex with a 5-year-old.” I wouldn’t have believed it either if the video hadn’t surfaced and made its way around social media. Thankfully, the Board of Trustees for Franklin High School held an emergency meeting and placed Amber Parker on administrative leave pending termination. For once we have people in a public school system declaring an “emergency” when it absolutely, positively was a legitimate emergency.
