We recently wrote about expanding efforts to make almost anything people don't like considered bullying -- including rolling your eyes at someone or excluding them from a group. Meanwhile, there's this bizarre story, sent in by Aaron DeOliveira about a seven-year-old first grader who's being investigated for sexual harassment after kicking a bully in the testicle. Yes, the other kid bullied him first -- choking him -- and he responded. It's the choice of where the kick landed that seems to be the issue. The principal doesn't seem to care, noting that all that matters is that since one kid hit the other in the groin, "that's assault. That's sexual assault." Is common sense dead?
