Teacher Fired for Adult Film Career Has Been Reinstated

Back in September we learned that Florida’s Miami-Dade school district fired teacher Shawn Loftis when they became aware of his previous work in the gay porn industry as a model and producer under the name Collin O’Neal.

The news created a whirlwind of controversy and many people were divided on whether or not they felt Loftis’ civil rights had been violated.

Differing opinions aside, Loftis received good news last week when the education commission reversed their earlier decision on his firing.

Gawker.com reports Loftis has returned to work teaching at Nautilus Middle school and opinions on his return are once again divided—even among many gay men.

Some feel that Lofits should not be allowed to work with children even though his past in porn is far from illegal and has nothing to do with what he teaches in the classroom.

Where do you stand on the issue?

Sound off in the comments below and let us know if you feel justice has been served now that Loftis is teaching once again.
