Hunter Yelton is a first grader in Canon City, CO who has a crush on his classmate. While it’s not stated if the two are Facebook official or not, Hunter’s mother, Jennifer, does refer to them as ‘boyfriend and girlfriend.’ Being the gentleman that Hunter is, he wanted to show his lady some affection and during class, he leaned over to her and kissed her on the hand. All of that seems innocent enough, but the school district isn’t having it. “They sent me to the office, fair and square. I did something wrong and I feel sorry,” says Hunter. The school then went as far to suspend him on allegations of sexual harassment. Now, it’s been awhile since I’ve made my way around a playground, but if a young buck like this kid has the balls to make a move on a cutie in his class, let their innocent love blossom.
Jennifer, isn’t taking this lying down. She explains in an interview, “this is taking it to an extreme that doesn’t need to be met with a six year old.” and, “now my son is asking questions…what is sex mommy?” She is going to be fighting the charges and wants it removed from her son’s record.
The school district is going on to say that this is not the boy’s first offense with this type of behavior and wants to bring forth disciplinary measures to change his behavior. According to Jennifer, Hunter has quite a rap sheet involving rough-housing and kissing his girlfriend on the cheek. Rough-housing and kissing? This kid is an Arthur Fonzerelli in the making and the school is going straight for sexual harassment? If that school wants to see real sexual harassment, they should spend an evening in a college-town bar listening to girls get hit on by guys in bedazzled t-shirts. Regardless of Hunter’s punishment, it appears this kid has got some major game and is going to be a hot commodity when he grows up.
