A fourth-grade teacher in Florida was fired from her post when it was revealed that she?d conceived her daughter outside of wedlock. As if that weren?t enough, the offending sex happened just three weeks before her wedding, which she?d been planning for months with the man who is now her husband.Jarretta Hamilton had gone to her boss at the Southland Christian School to request her six-week leave due to pregnancy. She was asked when she conceived (which I find incredibly odd) and answered honestly that it was just before her wedding. Apparently this was textbook fornication, or sex between two consenting adults out of wedlock, and as this act is in violation of the school?s morality guidelines she was fired. To add further insult to injury, her young students and their parents were told of the circumstances leading to her dismissal. Despite the private school?s religious affiliation there is no exemption from federal discrimination laws. On top of that Hamilton has never been told she was performing unsatisfactorily as a teacher. She is pursuing a lawsuit under federal gender discrimination laws, a state marriage discrimination law and due to privacy violations.This story is disturbing on so many levels -- the firing, the morality issue, the disclosure -- but the fact that Hamilton?s boss had the right to ask the details of her private life in the first place is pretty shocking. Furthermore, this is not the first recent news story where the workplace is inappropriately casting judgement on people?s private lives. A few weeks ago we heard about Debrahlee Lorenzana, the woman accusing Citibank of firing her for being ?too hot?. Days later there was the story of the high school coach who was fired for sexting his girlfriend, a 20-year-old college student whom he met independently of his career.Am I the only one who feels that we?re being very strangely pulled back into the sexual Dark Ages?Read the full story on Hamilton here.
