Alex Trebek: "The answer is, two high school teachers do a lap dance at a pep rally."
Me: "What is ... wrong with people?"
I can't imagine that these two teachers won't be fired, and I guess the hard-ass, rule-following schoolgirl inside me doesn't mind one bit. Teachers are role models, and often some of the most (or only) accessible adults that kids meet every day. I don't think this lap dance is funny or silly, because school isn't a place where stripping and strip clubs (something that is deeply problematic and demeaning to women 99.999999999 percent of the time) should be joked about--let alone enacted--by staff members. Consider my panties fully wadded.
