By now you’ve heard of the incident that occurred last week, when the administrators of the portal social on social media discovered that a student named Mary was posting “pornographic” material about herself on the portal.
The student’s profile photo was of a woman who was naked.
The administrators immediately contacted the school and said the incident was being investigated.
The principal of the school told reporters that he has since been informed of the situation, and that the school is currently in the process of removing the student from her social media account.
According to reports, the administrators took action because Mary had been posting material that was deemed “potentially inappropriate,” and was “promoting violence against women.”
In a statement issued on Wednesday, the principal said that “the school is investigating this matter,” and added that the student will be referred to the Office of Youth Violence and Sex Crimes for further action.
“The school will be investigating the matter as a potential criminal matter and will consider all available options to take appropriate action against any responsible parties,” the statement said.
The Principal added that a police investigation will be conducted.
Mary is a member of a student-led Facebook group called “The Sisters of the Holy Cross.”
The group is composed of students who are Catholic, who are committed to Catholic social justice, and who believe that the church and the church-supported schools are responsible for the social climate in their communities.
The group has a page dedicated to a “safe space” for students to “come together, discuss, pray, celebrate, and pray together.”
In an interview with Breitbart News, Mary said she was shocked to see the administrators taking action against her.
She was “very upset and disappointed,” she said, because she believes the administrators were trying to protect the “students” of her school.
She added that she had been a “very vocal advocate” for her beliefs on social issues for several years.
“I think [the administrators] should have gone through the proper channels to figure out why the content was being posted,” she told Breitbart News.
Mary said that her school, St. Mary’s High School, has a policy against “the dissemination of material which could be perceived as promoting violence against or harassment against any individual, and/or to perpetuate or incite any act of violence against any person.”
According to the school, the policy states that “materials which encourage, advocate, advocate for, or support violence against persons are prohibited.”
However, the school has been “obviously aware” of some of the content that was being published on Mary’s account, and has “reiterated that these are matters for the administrators to investigate.”
In addition to her own account, Mary also has several “friends” who have “shared” her posts on the “Safe Space” page.
However, it appears that the administrators did not consider that Mary had any connection to the “safe spaces” that she “shared.”
Mary told Breitbart that the administrator who contacted her had “a very narrow view of what a safe space is.”
“I don’t know how to interpret the situation,” she explained.
“If I was on a Facebook page, I would probably be called out for it, and then it would be taken down.”
In the same statement, the Principal of St. Joseph’s High school, Joseph Pappas, said that he was “in communication with the Office for Youth Violence” to ensure that “appropriate action is taken.”
“The office is actively involved in this matter, and will review any possible actions taken,” he said.
“We are aware that there are a number of concerns about the content posted by Mary and have taken the appropriate steps to investigate the matter and take appropriate steps in response.”
St. St. Francis High School also issued a statement condemning the incident.
“St. Joseph has zero tolerance for violence and the dissemination of pornography,” the school said.
