Teens In Lingerie Grind On, Give Lap Dances To High School Principal/Mayor, School Staff

OPINION | This article contains political commentary which reflects the author's opinion.

Mr. Donald “Happy” Mobelini is both the town Mayor and the Principal of Hazard High School, which is now embroiled in controversy involving inappropriate behavior with young teens during a spirit day “man pageant.” This sounds like the plot setup for a fictional horror novel about a small town with a dark secret, right? But this is real life. And yet another fabulous example of why unprecedented numbers of American families are choosing to educate their children at home or utilize alternatives to the public school system.

The Hazard Independent School District is investigating several bizarre and inappropriate incidents that took place at the high school’s spirit events recently.

Photos that were posted to the school’s athletics department Facebook page (which have since been removed, but screenshots are forever) revealed teenage girls prancing around the high school gym wearing Hooters waitress uniforms, teenage boys seductively dancing in bikinis and lingerie, and teenage boys and staff taking turns paddling each other. One student is pictured twerking in a thong bikini (with a spandex speedo underneath the bottoms for “modesty”) before the gathered crowd of teens and adults.

The bizarre pictures show a boy in a black teddy and stockings grinding his rear end into Mr. “Happy’s” crotch while Principal/Mayor “Happy” stands there beaming. I feel like his nickname must be a euphemism. I wonder if that teen boy grinding into him can tell how “happy” Mr. “Happy” is.

Another picture shows a bra and panty-wearing student straddling another staff member and grabbing his bald head while Mr. “Happy” sits next to them clapping.

Yet another strange photo shows the black teddy and stocking boy, who was grinding with Mr. “Happy,” now with his teddy pulled down to his waist to expose his upper body (was there a little strip tease where he pulled each strap of the teddy down?) and straddling another staff member while rubbing the man’s big belly with both hands. Again, sitting right next to Mayor/Principal “Happy.” But don’t worry, this staff member is wearing a mask. To protect the kids, you see. It’s all about protecting the kids. (I think I just sprained an eyeball with how hard I rolled my eyes.)

And still another worrisome picture shows a bikini-clad teen with their body pressed up against Principal/Mayor “Happy” with a raised arm holding the man’s hand, while Mr. “Happy” laughs and holds a microphone in his free hand.

Apparently the Hazard Independent School District released a statement regarding the photos of the bizarre high school homecoming assembly activities, including the following.

“First, I wish to address some questions around the incident. The activities were part of Homecoming festivities and were driven by the students. We strive to foster creativity in our students, but unfortunately, this time it was carried too far. Spirit Week at Hazard High School has a long and celebrated tradition. Homecoming activities were planned as a celebration for students, staff, and the school community. All were intended to be fun and good-natured however, the activities did not play out as intended. While Homecoming is an annual tradition, there has never been any issue raised prior to this year. Now that an issue has arisen, we are taking this opportunity to review policy and procedures to make certain that it does not happen again.”

Quite a lot of people are brushing this off as “just a joke” or “just kids having fun,” etc. I suspect these are the same kind of people who think Netflix’s Cuties is “art.” Kids can have all sorts of fun and be incredibly humorous and creative without grinding their rear ends into the crotches of their teachers or sexually objectifying their bodies in front of the entire school. But teenagers don’t always have the best judgement, which is why teachers and staff are responsible for guiding the kids to use better judgement when they are at school and away from their parents, who are primarily responsible for guiding their own children to use better judgement. And that makes this whole scenario even more disturbing because not a single teacher, staff, or attending adult stood up and put a stop to it.

One mom, whose son participated in the “man pageant,” said,

“It has been taken completely out of context. There are only photos being shown on the internet, no videos. The photos don’t show the teachers pushing the children off of them.”

Listen, if teachers have to push an almost naked student off of them while the student straddles and grinds on them in front of the entire school, then that’s something that should be completely stopped, not captured on video to show them pushing the kids off in order to add context to the event.

Did not a single adult in the entire school for the entire time think to stand up and say, “Hey, I know this is probably all being done in fun, and maybe it seemed like a good idea in theory, but this isn’t entirely appropriate and could get out of hand fairly quickly. Let’s put a stop to this now and do something else.”

But no one did. Which begs the question, where exactly do these teachers and staff draw the line? Because it’s not with an almost naked young teen grinding his booty in the the crotch of the Principal and Mayor.

Not altogether shocking is the fact that Mr. Mayor/Principal “Happy” Mobelini has been involved in several other school-related issues involving alcohol and alleged rape.

Parents, you have to be involved in your child’s education. You have to be informed and aware of what is going on at school. You have to go out of your way to make sure you are informed and aware, because you can no longer trust that the school will keep you informed and aware. In fact, at this point, you can almost trust that the school is intentionally keeping things from you. Safeguard your family accordingly.
