A high school girls basketball coach in suburban Chicago has been placed on administrative leave after writing a self-published book that includes graphic sexual content and an acknowledgement from the author that he has a "weakness for cleavage."It's clear that his cad-like beliefs never intruded into his work, as no one apparently as much as knew about them until the book was published. So now people know about them. He's an ineffective teacher? He's a potential rapist? He's just a yucky person? What's the standard for firing him, having unpopular beliefs?
Bryan Craig, who is also a counselor at Rich Central High School, resigned Friday as the varsity coach. The district's superintendent, Donna Simpson Leak, said Craig has been placed on leave pending a district review.
In the forward to the book, titled "It's Her Fault," Craig says his intention is to give women a guide to gaining the "upper hand in a relationship" because he is tired of hearing them complain. The book contains graphic details on his observations of the female anatomy, including what he describes as physical differences between ethnicities that lead him to conclude that "Latin women have more children."
I can see the slippery slope coming--what if he's a (gasp!) racist?! Well, if you listen to the Democrats, all Republicans and anyone who opposes the president is a racist, so that's too much. Fire a racist when they commit an act, not for what they think.
And this guy? He's not what I'd consider the most stand-up kind of guy, but firing him is ridiculous.
