BOSTON (CBS) – A 7-year-old boy is being investigated by his South Boston elementary school for possible sexual harassment after kicking another boy in the crotch.

UPDATE: Boy To Be Transferred To New School

The first grader’s mother, Tasha Lynch, says she was shocked by the school’s decision.

“He’s 7 years old. He doesn’t know anything about sexual harassment,” she said.

Lynch’s son, Mark Curran, said the boy that he kicked had been bullying him on the school bus ride home from Tynan Elementary last week.

WBZ-TV’s Christina Hager reports

“He just all of a sudden came up to him, choked him. He wanted to take his gloves, and my son said, ‘I couldn’t breathe, so I kicked him in the testicles,'” said his mother.

Lynch described a phone call she received from the school explaining that the case will be treated like sexual harassment, due to what it considers inappropriate touching.

“‘Your son kicked a little boy in the testicles. We call that sexual harassment,'” Lynch said the school told her.

She said she’s been asked to attend a disciplinary hearing at the school Monday.

A Boston Public Schools spokesperson said officials are investigating, but won’t comment further, since it’s a private matter.

Lynch wants an apology and better supervision on the school bus to prevent such fights among students.

“He couldn’t breathe. He was trying to defend himself,” she said. “I don’t find that sexual harassment. I find that defending himself.”

    Way to go kid, defend yourself. Mom needs to defend herself now, kick the system in the nuts since we know where they are.

    Way to go kid – Now Mom needs to kick the system in the balls. Fighting back is the only way our rights will survive.

    This is what the pathetic, Communist, dangerous fking Liberals have caused. Hang every last, gd one of them then maybe, just maybe we might have a country with some common sense again.

      You’re a pathetic POS if you really believe that anything but a bunch of administrators run amok had anything to do with this. Communists? You’re too ignorant to even know what a real communist is. You just believe everything you’ve been spoonfed by Fox News.

    BRAVO! To this brave lad…We need more like him. Unfortunately, he’s about three generations too late to save this nation but, down the road……

  5. dotw says:

    We teach our kids to stand up to bullies and protect themselves. I would have kicked him twice in the balls and then kicked the mother for raising such an a-hole.

    1. Oberon123 says:

      Mostly I’m against violence as a way of solving problems. In my guts, however, I agree with you completely.

  6. CaseAce says:

    Another example of the liberal establishment ie: Schools, Hollywood, Music trying to make boys into girls. Am I wrong?

    1. Silverdrake says:

      Please don’t insult girls, like that. It’s only the ludicrous, misogynistic, patriarchal indoctrination of girls that make so many behave as sniveling, gutless worms. For the rest of us, kicking him in the nads would have been only the start.

    Tht its why every country on the world think that USA is a big joke
    sty free usa

    1. Japes Macfarland says:

      That’s why everyone hates the US? Lol., it is the Left in the US that want to be just like you leftist pansies, who run schools like this, and yet STILL, people all around the world are wanting to move here. Are people knocking down your door, from as many countries as those people who want to get into the USA? No. It is *leftists* around the world that hate America, because of our prioritizing of individual liberty.
      You can’t have freedom and equality at the same time, often, as they are too often mutually exclusive. Because of the core American value being freedom, those who want to control others say they hate us. So what are you? A bureaucrat? lol :) I have a gun, give it your best shot, pansy.

    Seeing things like this is embarrassing to me as a teacher. Whoever it was in administration that considered this sexual harassment should face suspension.

    Also, nice to see that the Drudge Report link has brought in the Lunatic Fringe.

      You wrote: “nice to see that the Drudge Report link has brought in the Lunatic Fringe.”

      Less than nice to see that a teacher is not only accentuating foolish comments in a long comments thread (which one can find in *any* such anonymous discussion in this format) to not only ‘name call’ all the other decent and thoughtful people who are not leftists who have contributed, but revealing herself as exactly what so many of us fear. A knee jerk, thoughtless, indoctrinated leftist out of a Leftist Seminary (most universities) who is undoubtedly corrupting American children. Secular leftism and Statism is scourge on America and the world.

    The kid would get in less trouble if he would just shoot the bully between the eyes.

  10. John M says:

    Shoot the bully between the eyes and move on.

  11. MattGMD says:

    Another chapter in our knee-jerk ‘Zero Tolerance/Zero Common Sense’ policies. for the history books. While many of us sat back and nodded approval at our legislators for passing all these Zero Tolerance laws and policies, it apparently did not dawn on us that we were taking away the discretion for teachers and principals to handle such incidents based on their collective experience and training.

    The chickens have come home to roost.

  12. Hawgwilde says:

    This is exactly what is wrong with society today. The PC, liberal crowd has now made it where the victim no longer has rights. Schools supposedly have rules against bullying – yeah right! Especially if it’s a teacher’s kid doing the bullying! I hope this school gets sued from here to eternity. Normally I’m not for lawsuits, but something as STUPID as this needs to be corrected.

    Pantywaist liberals have turned us into a bunch of spineless wimps who cower at the thought of self-defense or being un-PC!

    I’d just like to comment that this article presents the mother’s side of the story. School officials couldn’t comment on it due to privacy reasons, the alleged bully’s family did not comment, so I don’t know why all of you are getting so worked up over what’s been presented here. Then again, I guess nobody has ever presented a one-sided misrepresentation of something that’s occurred to the press before, so by default you’re all right.

    1. Japes Macfarland says:

      You wrote: ” the alleged bully’s family did not comment”

      You’re right, of course, that we can’t know the whole truth from what we’ve been told. But one, have you seen the kid on video who did the kicking? He’s a very sweet kid. Also, if the bullies parents knew this is untrue we’d have heard something after all this time I’m sure. Many here guess that he’s a so called ‘minority’ which is why we haven’t seen or heard from him, too.
      P.S.
      Ever wonder why Cuban Americans aren’t considered ‘minorities’, generally? Because they don’t vote Left.

    If they’re going to charge the 7 year old with sexual harassment, then they should charge the bully with attempter murder

    Sexual harassment? Really? He kicked him in the balls. Not touched them. So if anything, it would be called assault.

  19. Hmm i hope you don't get annoyed with this question, but how much does a website like yours earn? says:

    Wonderful paintings! That is the type of information that should be shared across the web. Disgrace on the search engines for not positioning this post upper! Come on over and seek advice from my web site . Thanks =)

    of course like your website however you need to test the spelling on quite a few of your posts. Several of them are rife with spelling issues and I find it very bothersome to tell the reality on the other hand I’ll surely come again again.
