Misogynistic Christian Speaker Justin Lookadoo Charged with Public Intoxication

Last year, a Texas high school brought in motivational speaker Justin Lookadoo to speak to the students. Lookadoo — who once spoke at a pray-the-gay-away conference — is a self-proclaimed expert on being “dateable”… which really means being straight, Christian, and just like him.

His advice includes “dateable girls know how to shut up” and dateable guys “keep women covered up.”

The students who sat through his sexist tirade began using the hashtag #Lookadouche and the administration issued a half-assed apology saying they didn’t agree with much of what he said.

Religious Home-Schooling Parents in Virginia Aren’t Regulated At All, but One District is Trying to Change That

Last year, The Washington Post‘s Susan Svrluga wrote an incredible story about a home-schooled student, Josh Powell, who desperately wanted to attend public school because he knew his parents were not teaching him properly.

It didn’t work. Despite the setback, Josh eventually enrolled in a community college and later got accepted to Georgetown University (based on his strong desire to learn). As for his 11 (not a typo) siblings? They were still stuck at home, doomed to the same fate.
