In Georgia, an attorney for a 16-year-old student at Greene County High School is calling for the firing of a teacher who was recorded calling the student "the dumbest girl that I have ever met." Teacher Cory Hunter also said to the girl "You know what your purpose gonna be? To have sex and have children because you ain't never gonna be smart."

  1. His basketball team had 10 wins and 17 losses this past season.

    Way to bury the lede.

  2. The male teachers I had in high school were pretty blunt.I don’t think this guy should be fired,maybe a suspension.

  3. After a pause, Cory Hunter replies: “You know what? You might be the dumbest girl I’ve ever met in my life and I have been around for 37 years and clearly you are the dumbest girl that I have ever met.”

    She clearly might be the dumbest girl he’s ever met.

  4. …calling the student “the dumbest girl that I have ever met.”

    So he’s not allowed grading on a curve now? Goddamn common core.

  5. Wish somebody would have told me my purpose when I was 16. Think of how much more efficient her life will be now.

  6. At least this isn’t another case of kiddy-diddling. So that’s good.

  7. Sounds like multiple reasons he should be fired. He could always be Trump’s VP.

    1. Vrump!

  8. If he just called her dumb, I may have been able to say who cares. But he went well beyond that, at least according to this one-sided report (it’s apparently all recorded, though).

    The recording ends after the teacher rants about having sex with several women on a desert island.

    The teacher sounds pretty dumb in his own right.

    “He would get up in class the first day and tell the students that if they didn’t want to be talked about, then get out of his class,”

    Because attendance is completely voluntary.

  9. Jeez, he could have said she was a puke, the lowest form of life on Earth, not even a human fucking being, nothing but an unorganized grab-asstic piece of amphibian shit.

    1. Have more coffee. Re-read the article.

      That is exactly what he did say.

      I am going to posit that in schools where the majority of female students have a father at home this kind of shit happens much less frequently. A year after I graduated the principle at my high school got his ass whipped for pulling belittling the girls on the dance line. In my junior year one of the teachers was fired some some similar antics.

      1. Have a cup of tea and recalibrate your movie quotemeter.

          1. Come on, what else?!

            1. It’s been a long time, lol.

    2. +1 You’re so ugly you could be a modern art masterpiece. Now choke yourself

  10. It takes one…

  11. Kids are little shits. Not managing to work up many fucks to give.

  12. We had an English teacher in Jr. High who was infamous for breaking down every so often and ranting about how 8th graders were sub-human. 7th graders were new, scared and OK. 9th graders had started to mature back into humans, but 8th graders were the lowest of the low.

    None of us kids cared much, but it was a general rebuke of an entire class. Not anyone in particular.

  13. “You know what your purpose gonna be? To have sex and have children because you ain’t never gonna be smart.”

    So, she could be a teacher to…

  14. The article indicates that the girl was having eye trouble and was having surgery for it, so couldn’t read the notes, which is why she was recording.

    Realistically, though, it would be better if she simply realized that she’s surrounded by assholes and learn how to deal with it and shrug it off. It’s not as if she deserves this kind of treatment, just that allowing assholes to control your happiness is a bad strategy.

  15. “You know what your purpose gonna be? To have sex and have children because you ain’t never gonna be smart.”

    I just threw up a little irony into my mouth and had to swallow it back down.
