Ally Roberts guest blogs: Porn in the classroom? Really?

Every Monday, I always get to my first class early and am usually the first person there. Today, I decided to sit at the second row of tables, which means there is a row in front of me and a row behind me. This is a small twenty-person class in a very small basement classroom. If you are sitting on the same side of the room, you can pretty much see what everyone else is doing.

There were about 5 minutes left until class was supposed to start and this guy came in and took the closest open seat to the door, which happened to be at the table in front of me. I was talking to the person next to me when I looked up and was horrified at what I saw.

Porn. The guy in front of me was looking at porn! Seriously? This is so unbelievably inappropriate I don't know where to start.  First of all, this is Spanish class; there is no need for a computer at all. Secondly, why would anyone ever think this is ok?  Do you not realize that you are sitting in the front row of a very small classroom?

He was obviously trying to block the screen with his arm so nobody could see, and when he realized he couldn't hide it he quickly closed his laptop.

I'm pretty sure I am the only one who saw what was on his computer. But whether or not anybody saw doesn't matter, you are in class! That is so not okay!

I never thought I would need to say this but please, if you're going to come to class, be considerate and don't look at porn!

  1. Something like this happened to me in a PUBLIC LIBRARY once! You're a) in public b) there are children around and c) it's not even your own private computer. I could totally see what he was doing and it was creeptastic. Everytime someone walked by him he'd minimize the tab and then maximize it after they'd passed. I mean, I don't get porn in public. What do you expect to do? Waddle to the bathroom with a hard on? Masturbate in the stall? Grossgrossgross.
