Knew a kid who was suspended in high school...

He would sneak up behind girls and smell their hair. He did it a few times thinking it was funny. He was suspended for a week, and quickly grew out of it. He thought he was being a goofball but realized it was not cool. He was about 15 when he learned this.

You guys, this shouldn't be controversial... It was strange behavior then, it's strange behavior now. Nobody said anything about crime or assault, but it is, without a doubt, strange. Add a dynamic of a position of authority and it's even dicier.

That's all.

9. dys is a prefix that can be used with many descriptive nouns

 

and not all of them are words but they are accurate.

dys-functional

dys-circumstantial

dys means bad or abnormal.

10. How is 'abnormal circumstance' relevant to the object

 

How is 'abnormal circumstance' relevant to the object (taking into account valency)?

15. Abnormal is just one of the meanings of dys

 

The circumstance of a 15 year old boy randomly hugging girls is not the same as a political leader doing it to supporters, friends and colleagues in a public function.

18. Not intended to be a metaphor.

 

Just saying smelling women's hair without their consent is strange. Apparently DU disagrees.

5. Wow... I should have thought he would not be allowed to breathe in class. Maybe be required to wear

 

a gas mask. At the very minimum.

6. Oh please.

 

There were commercials for years modeling this very behavior. Even a shampoo called "Geeyourhairsmellsgreat". I can see it would be annoying by today's standards but a week's suspension, hard to believe.

So, Biden bad.

13. Maybe that kid could come out

 

and say how smelling girls' hair is not COOL.
Many might benefit from him telling his STORY.

What say you? Think he'd be able to BROadcast his experience to the voting public?

I donít believe Biden did any such thing. Flores had four years to exaggerate this in her mind to a point where she likely believes it.
