I'm not saying I agree with everything edog wrote, but the difference that I see in the Lindsey Stone situation is that she was on a business trip with her company LIFE - Living Independently Forever. It is a company that helps adults with mental disabilities live as independently as possible. In breaking the rules as the site, she was breaking the code of conduct for her company.<quoted text>So, doing something totally legal is reason enough for her to be fired?
Dude, you talk about wanting to bang your cousins teenage friends, what kind of employee are you?
Teachers are not allowed to have a sex life? Their teachers, not nuns. What they do in their bedroom is non of my(or my kids) business. Bet you would have a different view if the teacher was a man. Aren't atheletes role models too? How about firemen or a cop? Should all of those peeps be fired if they make a porno?
You know, for someone who is supposedly for smaller govt, you sure seem to think that govt has every right to go into peoples bedrooms and dictate what is allowable.
If a teacher had sex with someone during the schoolday, I would expect repercussions. Cops and firefighters are monitored very closely now about what they do off the clock, online, who they associate with because it is recognized that their off duty activities can affect their ability to do their jobs effectively.
There are lots of legal things that you can do, but not on your employer's clock/dime.
BTW, Lindsey Stone has now been fired.
