can you believe someone could be fired for a job they had in the PAST!?!?! I mean, yeah obviously, a job as former porn star is going to raise eyebrows and whatnot. But it still seems unreal in 2012 that a person would actually be fired and even have a certificate revoked because of a former job. I read this article "Florida teacher, Shawn Loftis, with gay porn past gets job back" (by the way if that's an article title, why don't they capitalize all the words? must be an online rule.. maybe some journalism person knows..) I also saw this dumb, i mean really DUMB, interview with some loud mouth woman on CNN trying to make a point about nothing and as usual trying to bring out the scandal of it all instead of the rights the guy has to teach... video is no longer posted . however, it's interesting the way her whole interview said "porn star" and leaves out the "gay" part. another interview with dr. drew here. tries to make some kind of point, still unclear.
Seems to me that like the guy says, if nobody would have mentioned anything about his big.... uh... secret porn star past in the first place, no child ever would have known or looked anything up online in the first place.
I can't think of any legal basis for firing a substitute teacher or revoking a liscnese based on past employment, but I'm not sure about current money made off personal websites, although I suppose substitute teachers are allowed to have other jobs on the side. all very strange.
I like what the one lady says along the lines of, hey this is Miami and who cares? ha
