Robert Marucci suspended, back to class after starring in gay porn film.

Robert Marucci suspended, back to class after starring in gay porn film.

Robert Marucci: Making you wonder about what the real beef is?

Robert Marucci, a suspended Florida high school student was allowed to return to class after appearing in a gay porn film.

The about face comes after Cocoa High School officials told it was wrong to punish the 18 year old.

By having suspended the youth, school officials risked not allowing Marucci to graduate.

Marruci’s suspension came after fellow students (are you surprised?) first circulated images showing the youth participating in the adult films.

Asked why he chose to appear in the films, Robert Marucci countered he wanted to help his mother pay bills around the house.

I know kids. I am going to carefully stir my chamomile tea before proceeding too.

Told a teary eyed Melyssa Lieb of her son: ‘I think he’s the most awesome person in the world,’

‘He stood up and he was the man of the house when I couldn’t be.’

Told Michelle Irwin, a district spokeswoman: ‘No child would ever be suspended for a job that they have outside of the school environment.’

Even after having been suspended, Robert Marucci remained unapologetic for the work he considers no different to any other job.

Reflected the teen: ‘I feel like I have been treated unfairly and this is unjust,’

 ‘This was completely legal. I didn’t break any laws, and this took place out of the school.’

Added Robert Marucci’s mother: ‘I don’t think that this is anybody’s business except for my son.’

Robert’s mother wasn’t the only one who supported him, as dozens staged a walkout at the school on Friday. A Facebook group was also set up to support him.

Which raises the awkward question. What’s the real faux pas? Punishing someone for choosing to partake in their sexuality that sits uncomfortably with mores or the inconvenience of having someone blatantly remind you that sexuality is rampant, even in 18 year old same sex school boys. Of course one can’t help but wonder if the boy would have been suspended in the first place had he appeared in a heterosexual sex film….
