Good for her. If you can't plaster the words in that essay on the walls of Cumberland High School, the essay does not belong in the curriculum, nor in the hands of students. Let's do an experiment...I dare someone to write c%nt and p*#sy on large posters and paste them along the walls and in the foyer of the HS...let's see how quickly they'd come down and how quickly people would take offense!
