AURORA, Colo. (AP) - A 6-year-old boy was suspended from his suburban Denver school for three days after school officials said he told a girl "I'm sexy and I know it," a line from a popular song.
D'Avonte Meadows, a first-grader at Sable Elementary School in Aurora, is accused of sexual harassment and disrupting other students, according to a letter the school district sent to his mother after he was sent home Wednesday.

I don’t agree with the punishment—but I agree that a 6 yr old should have never heard those lyrics............
Well... I’m sexy and I know it! Is that a bad thing? Either way, this little kid was reciting a popular song. I remember when my youngest brother recited a poem to Sister Mary Catherine when he was in first grade. It started out with “there once was a girl from Nantucket...” Sister Mary Catherine, having common sense and understanding that little kids hear things from older siblings... simply told my Mom quietly. (My oldest brother was grounded for the weekend).
Oh man, I could not imagine the radio being verboten when I was a kid. How standards have plunged. Even yet, talk about mere “sexiness” is tame, tame, tame among all the “mainstream” material that broaches the topic.
The kid was purposely being annoying but really. Make him stand in the corner for fifteen minutes or something, then forget about it.
Girl shoulda asked him for his M&Ms (”OK buster, prove it”)
I’m too sexy for my car, too sexy for my car...
And welcome to Liberalism at school. No doubt he’ll be labeled a sex offender for the rest of his life.
Whatever you do, philman, DON’T go on Youtube and watch the video. I’m telling you... don’t.
What’s the next naughty meme. “I’ve got M&M’s in my pistol”???
Warn us please. Is it R or X rated.
It is R rated. Guys in skimpy undies shaking their.... uh, what God gave them. Average looking guys, too. For the ladies, no six packs, no muscles. You would have been a much better model for this, HiTech! (((giggle, giggle)))
If you want my body...and you think I’m sexy...come on and let me know...
I bet in 1976 six-year olds were singing “Thinking of you is workin’ up an appetite, gonna have a little afternoon delight.....”
Not that I’m condoning 6-year olds singing it....just merely pointing out that the ship sailed a long time ago.
A 3 day suspension, or ANY suspension, for this trivial nonevent is asinine.
One kid was suspended for using his fingers as a gun and another little girl who drew a picture of a gun had cops come to their house and arrest her dad. We are totally screwed.
our sick depraved msm plays those “songs” all day every day. today I had the misfortune to hear one by Rhianna that is clearly pornography.
The public school should not have suspended this kid. It is the adults who put that depraved garbage on the radio.
I remembered reading pages of Nantucket limericks in my childhood books. But I Googled (maybe I should have Binged) for it and lo and behold the naughty version is the second result. (A sample line: “If her ear were a **** I could **** it.”)
Good thing they didn’t hear the kid sing some of the songs we used to sing back in the day:
Glory Glory Hallelujah
Teacher hit me with a ruler
Shot her with a .44
And she fell to the floor
And she ain’t our teacher no more
What surprised/shocked my Mom was that the nun stopped his little poem just at the second line. How in the world did she know the poem?!!! Hmmm? Sister actually sort of chuckled when she told Mom. Mom did not chuckle at all. My older brother certainly didn’t chuckle once that entire weekend.
Perhaps she’d caught Bro at it, but at the time didn’t know that Bro had also shared it with Lil Sis. So Bro got a warning... but something probably got a warMing when she learned Bro had shared it.
Glory Glory Hallelujah
Teacher hit me with a ruler
Met her at the bank
With a loaded Sherman tank
And she aint my teacher no more
(Maybe there's more to the story but the excerpt was really short....too short.)
I’m glad I grew up years ago, or I would probably be just now getting out of prison. My first kiss was in kindergarten, on the cheek of Carla Colfax during rest time. (Remember that book about learning everything in Kindergarten? It’s true! I learned never to sneak up and plant an unwanted kiss on a girl!)
I had heard it but was a bit smarter than my younger brother (still am!). I was smart enough not to recite it to a nun. LOL!
They may know something eh ~ this is really, really, really stupid.
Does this young woman have difficulty standing up perhaps?
I was talking about the group, LMAO... that video. Believe me, the little M&M pulling off his candy coating is tame. Kids learn so much from television and commercials. Commercials now are more adult than I was a kid. I remember when my son was in 3rd grade and told a male substitute teacher that he reminded him of “Bob”. (remember that commercial with a man smiling all the time because he had found some sort of ED medication?) What my son was trying to say is that the substitute smiled a lot).
Can you tell I don’t watch TV?
You guys have it all wrong, public schools are all for 6-year-olds talking sex. It is the M&Ms reference that is the problem.
Believe me, the little M&M pulling off his candy coating is tame.
Yeah, it was "tame" enough that the background song got a six year old suspended.
Commercials now are more adult than I was a kid.
Yeah! I'm 50 and I remember the commercial of the Playtex Cross-Your-Heart bra that "lifts and separates". Not much left to the imagination there and it didn't get much more adult than that. And I won't even bother going into the panty commercials of the day much less the beginnings of the female hygiene products.
Victoria's Secret commercials are just glitzed up compared to the old days.
I'm just a little peeved that the people in this school are so ignorant of today's culture that they're going to punish this poor kid simply for saying what he heard in an M&M commercial.
I'm also disappointed that people don't seem to realize where this kid heard this song. It is "old" in that it's had it's heyday. It ran it's course and it's already "old" in the music industry. Two weeks was it in January and then it was gone. That's the life expectancy these days on the radio. There's always something new coming out.
If the teachers and schools truly wanted to do something productive they would confront M&M over the whole thing and have the commercial removed or restricted to air time instead of punishing the kid.
His indoctrination has commenced. You don't have freedom of speech. You have controlled speech and you better get used to it.
We have schools that teach them sex, feds that mail them free condoms, MSM that glorifies it and we are surprised?
Does anyone remember the story of the little girl kicked off the cheerleader squad for not doing the booty call dance to dirty rap lyrics??
There is a good chance the kid heard that song IN SCHOOL
LOL, that is a great family story. When my son was just first talking he recited this poem to his grandmother:
I love you
I love you
I love you, DEVINE
Please give me your chewing gum
Because you are sitting on mine.
Fortunately I did not listen to sex songs around him or I am sure he would have said the words if they hit his funny bone.
I agree! You know, when I was real little... bra commercials had models wearing black turtlenecks sweaters with the bra on the outside. Or, there was some sort of torso seamstress plastic model with the bra on it. How far we have come, huh? This child was just repeating what he had heard. He wasn’t sexually molesting the other child (probably just singing and playing). What annoys me is that in high school, his counseling office with have a little basket loaded with condoms (out in the open). School teachers are offended by words but not with what their curriculum actually teaches them.
Meanwhile, some teacher is down the hall naked in a broom closet singing the same tune to an eight grader.
Nope—not even the Super Bowl-—although I was at one time a huge Cowboy fan—back in the glory days of Roger Staubach, who was our neighbor.
