An 18-year-old Sebastian River High School senior is reportedly being charged with a felony and expelled from high school as a result of a consensual relationship with another female student. Kaitlyn Hunt started dating a 15-year-old student from her high school basketball team when she herself was 17. Kaitlyn’s father, Steven R. Hunt, Jr., claims his daughter was kicked off the basketball team because the coach feared a same-sex relationship would bring unwanted drama. Steven Huntexplained, “The girl’s mother found out about the relationship, and, as the track coach and Criminal Justice teacher told me, the girl’s mother said that there’s no way her daughter could be gay. The mother then took reigns and is now attempting to place felony charges upon my own daughter.” According to her family, Kate’s girlfriend was a freshman student enrolled in courses with upper-classmen and a fellow player on the Varsity basketball team with Kaitlyn. While Kaitlyn was 3 years older than her girlfriend, they were friends in the same social circle.
On Kaitlyn’s 18th birthday, her girlfriend’s parents sent the police to the Hunt residence where she was arrested. Kaitlyn’s mother told The Examiner, “They are out to destroy my daughter, because they feel like she ‘made’ their daughter gay. They see being gay as wrong and they blame my daughter. Of course, I see it 100% differently. I don’t see or label these girls as gay. They are teenagers in high school experimenting with their sexuality – with mutual consent. And even if their daughter is gay, who cares? She is still their daughter.” Kaitlyn’s father wrote about the arrest, “My daughter was ripped out of her mother’s arms, hysterical. The police finally told us she was being arrested on probable cause.”
Oh look, people from my hometown being bigoted, sneaky, litigious assholes. This whole case is totally absurd, and the parents who are pressing charges against this girl deserve to go to whatever the lowest rung of hell is.
I had the privilege of shooting Taylor Hoff’s home in San Francisco. Such a beautiful and well organized space.
This but pink xo
Aroressa, located in southern Ethiopia’s Sidama zone, is a beautiful, verdant, and mountainous area dotted with small coffee plantations that are irrigated by natural waterfalls and meandering streams. In the valleys, cattle graze and children play outside the onion-shaped huts typical of the area.
But Aroressa’s beauty obscures the very serious medical issues with which its population must contend. Health centers are scarce, as are qualified medical personnel. Maternal and child mortality rates are high. The mountainous terrain makes it difficult for pregnant women to trek to their nearest health center, which could be 20 kilometers [12 miles] away, if not further. Many lives have been lost on these treacherous journeys.
