NYC School to Honor Convicted Sex Offender: “Is it even legal for him to be in a school?”

Celebrating 50 Years Of Peter, Paul And Mary

Do the boobs running these schools have even the slightest bit of self-awareness?

Folk singer and convicted sex offender Peter Yarrow will be honored by La Guardia HS for the Performing Arts next month, enraging parents and prompting a dozen “uncomfortable” students to refuse to sing for him.

Yarrow, a member of the legendary Peter, Paul and Mary, was accused of engaging in a sex act with a 14-year-old girl in a Washington, DC, hotel room in front of her 17-year-old sister in 1970. He pleaded guilty to “taking indecent liberties” with the child and landed three months behind bars.

“Is it even legal for him to be in a school?” fumed one parent of a teen at La Guardia, the Upper West Side institution immortalized in the 1980 movie “Fame.”

“They have lots of famous alumni who went to that school. Is this really the best choice for someone to honor and be on stage with these children?”

Before you know it the finger-wagging lefties will be tut-tutting parents for bullying this liberal icon.

Another parent said the administration’s choice of Yarrow, 75, for a “Hall of Fame” award at the Parents Association Gala was “disgusting,” and wondered aloud what school officials were thinking.

The fancy gala is scheduled to be hosted by broadcaster Al Roker at Lincoln Center on May 21.

It is being billed as “Peace, Love, and the Power of Song/Celebrating Peter Yarrow,” who co-wrote the song “Puff the Magic Dragon.’’

After word leaked that Yarrow would be honored, a La Guardia student wrote on the Facebook page for the school’s vocal majors that a teacher told her that any student could choose to decline to take part in the gala.

“IMPORTANT! So, I talked to [the teacher], and she said that whoever is uncomfortable performing in the gala honoring Peter Yarrow does not have to participate,” the student wrote, adding that anyone who didn’t want to sing with the folk star had to reply to her post with their real name and chorus information.

Within 24 hours, 10 girls and two boys wrote back that they didn’t want to sing for the performer.

Such intolerance.

    Q “Is it even legal for him to be in a school?” fumed one parent of a teen at La Guardia…”

    A yes it is legal because he was pardoned by jimmy carter for the crime in 1981

    Q did he ever apologize

    A kinda- he is quoted as saying “It was an era of real indiscretion and mistakes by categorically male performers. I was one of them. I got nailed. I was wrong. I’m sorry for it.”

    Q so he was 32 years old and had sex with a 14 year old girl in front of her 17 year old sister in a hotel room and essentially got away with it

    A yes it appears that way

    Q what does he do now

    A he is involved in various outreach programs to children in the 2nd-8th grade, most notably “operation respect” which he founded and has the following mission statement:
    “To assure each child and youth a respectful, safe and compassionate climate of learning where their academic, social and emotional development can take place free of bullying, ridicule and violence.”

    Q so the mission statement doesnt specifically mention sexual assault or rape

    A no

    Q why do you think that is

    A so the left can use him in their crusade to normalize pedophilia

    Q so he isnt really any different than roman polansky is he

    A actually he is in that he didnt drug his victim first and he didnt become a fugitive

    Q what i meant was they are both darlings of the left

    A oh sorry, yes, you would be correct in saying that

    A kinda- he is quoted as saying “It was an era of real indiscretion and mistakes by categorically male performers. I was one of them. I got nailed. I was wrong. I’m sorry for it.”

    So his crime was being “categorically male,” and he defines it as “unable to not molest a 14-year-old in front of her own sister.”

    From a leftist’s POV, this actually is quite illuminating: maleness is the problem. To them “masculine” = “unable to control sexual urges.” “Categorically male” = “liable to rape anything at a moment’s notice.” Masculinity is the thing he needed to repent for, and he has. Mental castration.

    So you men out there who are actually men, who know about self-control and morals and standards, who protect the innocent, who respect boundaries – you are the monsters here, not poor ol’ Pete Yarrow, ‘k? Cisgendernormative beasts.
