If you want some specific ones, I know of a few porn/hentai sites that could have what you need...

"daughter was inspired by the movie âEUoeThe Twilight Saga: Eclipse" when she wrote the speech."

The school is right, obviously.

when you were typing that post, did you actually think you were being funny for using a tired joke about twilight movies

if you did, you might want to try being original or something

This is one of the reasons why I hate school. It's not here to teach us to not offend people, it's here to teach us how to read books and garbage like that. Teachers say Hell all the time. If I were this girl, I would raise HELL about it. I would go right into that office and yell "GIVE ME MY FUCKING DIMPLOMA YOU SNIVELING CUNT I WILL END MY TWATTY LIFE AND THROW MY FUCKING BITCHY ASS INTO A BIG FUCKING BALL OF FLAMING SHIT AND DROWN IN IT."

Not really but it's fun to imagine stuff like that.

But I do really think I'd be mad and do everything in my power to get my diploma. You just can't have your diploma denied because you said a word that's completely natural.

This amuses me. Teachers here say shit, crap, bitch, bastard, hell, and swear in the native language over here too sometimes.

They should just apologise, even if they don't mean it. She needs that diploma more than her honour.

It became a curse for christians and catholics, because people would say such things as "Damn you to hell"

Damnation being eternal banishment to a hellish place, and hell being the said hellish place, and the two became synonomis after hundreds of years of use

What? Both the words "Damn" and "Hell" started being used after the Protestant reformation. The only people after that who still considered both a "cure" were the Calvinists and Puritans (which didn't even last long).

Where did you get this

I made a mistake of typing "I" instead of "A", really messed up the post.

Anyway, it was on the news back in 1998 and at the time, the Yankees were still battling against the Cleveland Indians while the Braves were struggling to come back against the Padres. I kind of remember it happening shortly before the World Series that year, it was a long time ago.

She's denied her diploma? So what? They can't hold her back because she said "hell." She's already accepted to a college on a full scholarship anyway, so who cares about a diploma for some shitty high school education?

I don't see how this makes sense, but whatever.

I read in the article a little further, and i found out she was inspired with the speech by the twilight saga, apparently?
After i read that, i lost a bit of respect for her.

I'd say this. It was definitely a risky move on her part, but that punishment is beyond stupid.

Even if the valedictorian said the word "fuck", "shit", "goddamn", or any other legitimate curse word, I still see no reason to withhold a high school diploma from her. It was a slip-up, nothing more. People get over it, especially mature fellow senior classmates. People usually don't get over not receiving a hard-earned high school diploma, however.

This whole predicament is disproportionate retribution; the punishment far outweighs the crime's intensity.

There was this one night while i was drunk and my friends were all sober on my xbox live account.
They changed my bio to say that i had incest with my sister. Got banned later on.
even to this day, it still says code of conduct in my bio.

There is no way she should be denied her diploma for the words she used in her speech.

Judging by the article, her speech was a success and she was met with laughter. It obviously appealed to the students and faculty. That's good public speaking really is: pleasing the majority of your audience.

Withholding her diploma is an insult. Their school is going to be bombarded by bad publicity for this blunder. If anything, they owe her a written apology. Their outdated rules will be their downfall.

Horrific, deplorable violence is okay, as long as people don't say any naughty words.

Valedictorians never have anything meaningful to say during their speeches. They're always the unwanted person with no real life experience. Just happened to do good in their classes.

I recall my mathematics teacher screaming that my class was "5 years retarded!", my English teacher cunting a pupil with a book and one of the mathematics teachers getting caught having an affair by a young pupil.

This is nothing. I am generally rather heavy handed by all accounts, but there is nothing wrong with the occasional mild curse word.

Despite how stupid this is, she should go ahead and write an apology in order to get her diploma...

...only to write another letter later stating that she's "joking as hell" and was not serious about the apology.

Who said that the people behind the denied diploma approved of deplorable violence?
Their decision was not thought out but that doesn't mean you can just assume what they find okay or not; it's irrelevant.

Honestly I'm glad this has happened. The pressure put on students these days has gotten ridiculous, and the more of these stories surface, the more people are going to demand that we allow our students to be human.
