Yet One More Reason I'm Glad I No Longer Live in Texas

I used to work for the museum where the teacher saw the "nude art." From the NY Times:

But Ms. McGee, 51, a popular art teacher with 28 years in the classroom, is out of a job after leading her fifth-grade classes last April through the Dallas Museum of Art. One of her students saw nude art in the museum, and after the child’s parent complained, the teacher was suspended.

Why would anyone want to teach in a state where these whack jobs have so much power? No offense to my beloved brother-in-law who actually teaches nearby, but not in the same town. Maybe things are different where he is.

The DMA doesn't really have controversial art on display. The objects mentioned in the article were not created for erotic purposes.

But mark my words, the fundy parents who got this teacher fired shouldn't be surprised when the kid they are raising to believe that all images of the human body are erotic becomes sexually neurotic.

There's nothing that surprises me in this state anymore. It's so sad that the parents who let their kids play extremely violent video games are the probably the same ones who complained about this trip and want to burn Harry Potter books. Texas is awful on so many levels.
