A Texas high school teacher’s apparent defense of the feelings of pedophiles blew up big time after a video of her instructing students to refer to depraved sexual degenerates as “Minor Attracted Persons” was posted to social media where it went viral, resulting in a predictable firestorm of outrage that may have burned her career to a cinder.
The woman – identified as Amber Parker – who teaches English at Franklin High School in El Paso has been placed on administrative leave and is facing termination for her remarks during a lesson, admonishing a student who did not use the “woke” left’s preferred descriptive term for criminal perverts who prey on underaged victims.
“Stop it Diego!” Parker harshly scolds a student. “We are not going to call them that. We are going to call them MAPS, Minor Attracted Persons so don’t judge people just because they want to have sex with a 5-year-old.”

On Tuesday, the El Paso Independent School District board of trustees unanimously voted to move forward with Parker’s firing after an investigation of the incident, she is on paid administrative leave while the appeals process plays out with her termination pending.
“After a thorough investigation was conducted, on September 6, 2022, during a Special Board Meeting, the Board of Trustees approved a decision to notify a Franklin High School teacher of proposed termination,” district spokesperson Liza Rodriguez said on Friday. “Any allegation of potential misconduct is investigated thoroughly, and the safety of our students is a top priority.”
Before Tuesday’s vote on Parker’s fate, one board member, Vice President Daniel Call thought that the video of her remark may have been “taken out of context,” according to a report by NBC News.
“Initially I was shocked and horrified when I saw the video,” Call told the outlet. “Then when I heard that she was trying to be sarcastic, I felt bad for her. However, when the district’s investigation into this situation helped me understand the full story, I have no doubt that terminating this teacher is the right thing to do. Any reasonable person that heard the results of the investigation would vote to terminate her.”
“Call wouldn’t share the details of the investigation that led to him changing his mind on the incident,” NBC News reported.
“I will be more than happy to comment once the teacher has had an opportunity to appeal and that process is complete,” Norma De La Rosa the El Paso Teachers Association President told the outlet, saying that she was “advised by the union’s legal staff not to comment on the incident at this time.”
“I am certain that by then I will have plenty to comment on,” she said.
Parker said that she is “not legally allowed to comment at this time,” after NBC News reached out to her.
Twitter users expressed their opinions on the disturbing incident.
Lots of dangling pieces here. If this is legit, she must never be allowed to teach in public schools. If this is a political scam, the board members should be removed. But there are too many missing pieces.

Whether the teacher’s remarks were made as sarcasm will be determined during the appeals process but it should serve as a lesson that there is now a heightened awareness to the presence of groomers and their enablers in the nation’s classrooms and anything that is inappropriate will likely end up on social media.
