Cootie Alert: Harassment on the Playground

This article responds with ironic humor to an incident in which a 6-year old in New York was suspended from school for kissing a female classmate. The writer uses her kindergarten-age brother's crush on a female classmate to illustrate satirically that she does not believe the incident constitutes gender-based harassment given the perpetrator's age, and that suspension is too severe a punishment.
