School secretary calls girl 'filthy whore'
on 7/9/2004 (7)
James Buchanan Elementary School secretary and foosball coach John Davis, when asked for a pencil, jokingly called a girl a “filthy whore,” prompting the president of the Massachusetts chapter of Women Against Name Calling to call for his resignation or painful death.
|Is this what you want your seven-year old daughter compared to? Yeah, me neither. |
Davis, a former drive thru order taker at a local Burger King with a widely known impulse to degrade everyone around him with hurtful comments, was well liked throughout the community. His words startled family and friends alike.
“Sure John called myself, my wife, and each of my three children filthy whores on numerous occasions in front of many witnesses, but I never thought he’d go so far as saying this to anyone else,” said Jared Duncan, longtime friend and neighbor of Davis. “He doesn’t deserve any punishment, I’d bet my solid gold house that he’ll never do it again.”
But Allison Bellows, president of the Massachusetts chapter of Women Against Name Calling, said Thursday that the comments Davis made were inexcusable and that he should be “shot out of a cannon into a brick wall.” Bellows later admitted a resignation would also be suitable.
The conversation in question, recorded on security cameras in full Dolby 5.1 Surround, took place on July 6th. The girl, seven-year-old Mary Humpsalot, asked Davis if he had a pencil she could borrow.
Davis replied, “I don’t give things up as easy as you do, you filthy whore!”
After a stunned silence by all those around him, the girl again asked for a pencil.
“Hey, that’s nifty,” he said. Then added, “You filthy whore!”
A day later, Davis issued a statement that said he “teased” the girl. “I immediately apologized to her, and I want to do so again,” said Davis. “Sorry you’re such a filthy whore Mary.”

The James Buchanan Elementary School principal, Jeff Whitman, said Thursday Davis had not been asked to resign and, “That’s the end of the story, as far as we’re concerned.”
The girl’s mother, Sally Humpsalot, said her daughter was fine, and she considered the issue over.
“Obviously it hurt her feelings, but she didn’t take it personally,” said Sally. “I’m a whore, whoever Mary’s father was is a whore, and my mother before me was a whore. Mary knows full well she will be a whore some day too, she might as well get used to being called a whore now because she will be called one all her life.”
