West Yorkshire, England (The Weekly Vice) -- Leonora Rustamova, a 39-year-old English teacher at Calder High School in West Yorkshire, England has been sacked after publishing a racy novel that depicts sexual encounters with some of her students.
The community must be outraged over such a novel, right? Well..... not exactly.
Rustamova's new book "Stop! Don't Read This" is a fictional story that focuses on five real-life students and faculty members at Calder High School where she taught. The book tells how Miss Rusky's "favorite" students discover a criminal drug den beneath the school.
It reportedly depicts the students flirting with the teacher and the teacher flirting back. One student is described as fantasising and flirting with Miss Rustamova while she says she would do 'anything' for a smile. She later describes how the students practiced "orgasmic moans' which sound like "the soundtrack to teenage gay porn."
Two characters in the book that are sunbathing shirtless are described as "looking like gorgeous Mr. Gay UK finalists" where there is some "pretty stiff competition." The book goes on to depict the student's involvement in drug use, theft and setting themselves on fire.
When school administrators got wind of the publication, Rustamova was placed on suspension pending an administrative hearing by a panel of school governors. At the conclusion of the hearing Miss "Rusky" was terminated.
So how did the school body react?
Following "Miss Rusky's" suspension, more than 250 students and parents held mass demonstrations in support of the teacher - saying she was "only trying to encourage the students to read."
Several students from the school said their studies were suffering because of the teacher's absence. One parent stated "I don't think there's anything there that would concern parents, unless they're Mary Whitehouse types." Another student insisted the book "helped us take school seriously."
The Weekly Vice Opinion:
The story really wasn't of particular interest to us until everyone began to insist that it's focus was to "help students read."
Alright - let's just cut the bullshit, Calder High. If the teacher targeted students as her readers - then she shouldn't have laced it with drug use, profanity and teacher/student sex overtones. If she was looking to make money on it, fine, but don't represented it as some compassionate tool of learning. There are a million novels out there a student can read.
To the parents who encouraged the mob mentality demonstrations - what kind of twisted, ignorant parents are you? Representing the sexualization of children as some kind of educational tool only proves that you yourselves are tools.
As we say here in the U.S. - Don't pee on my boot and tell me it's raining.
