The “reflective statement” required of an unnamed male teacher who was lightly slapped on the wrist with a wet bus ticket for saying things to Year 11 students such as “Bend over and I’ll take a photo of your tits” has been acquired by Ideologically Impure staff. We reproduce it in full here.
Reflective Statement of A Fucking Tool
Over the past few weeks I have learnt many things in a mandated behaviour management course.
I have learnt that just like my former students I too can pass a course by showing minimal interest in its contents, not visibly falling asleep or texting my mates, and memorising the model answers from last year’s class.
I realise I have made many mistakes. The comments I made to students were inappropriate and in any just society would have seen me cast out from the teaching profession because I am clearly a lecherous fucking douchebag.
However, I have been given a second chance and I am grateful for that.
In future, I will change my ways. I will only sexually harass students who are really vulnerable, or whose word and dignity will be completely discounted because they’re ratbags. I will be more menacing in my approach and ensure my victims are too scared of the consequences to rat me out.
My blunt approach, in asking a student if she was a virgin, was absolutely wrong. From this day hence my come-ons and harassment will be more subtle, quieter, vaguer, relying on societal indoctrination to make my victims question if I actually said what they thought I said, or believe that it must be a misunderstanding and they’ll just get into trouble if they make a fuss.
I believe I have changed. I am no longer a man who will be caught sexually harassing fifteen-year-old girls over whom I have authority. I promise to make amends to the teaching profession by encouraging an atmosphere of silence and intimidation amongst all pupils in my care. To the other teachers at my unnamed school, I can only vow that they will never have to face a pupil telling them about my actions, because none of those bitches will talk if they know what’s good for them.
Finally, I want to thank the Teachers’ Council for unleashing me upon the teenaged girls of New Zealand once more.
