    You're pretty lucky to have an INFP English teacher. Look past the type conflict. You'll get a lot of enjoyment out of it and learn a lot.

    I don't know, I'm in high school right now..so depending on what grade you're in, it might be a little innapropriate, but nothing more, because it's nothing to get offended by.
    Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?

    If I were the teacher, I'd probably worry more about tone I'd set -- since whatever I do, my kids would take and run with and do about 3000x worse. That's one issue; you have to draw a line far earlier than you'd like so that the invariable jumping over it still doesn't take people TOO far into the areas you don't want them in.

    (Right here, he approved slang with the word "f*ck" in it and a sexual connotation; don't tell me some kid will not take that and run with it.)

    I think 30 years ago, probably very inappropriate. The culture is different now; standards are relaxed; social roles are more fluid with positions of authority, you aren't necessarily expected to be this bastion of goodness, you're allowed to be more human. Gen Y is also much more flexy and less focused on the authority issue, they are all for diversity and casualness.

    yeah, I guess you guys are right about that... I should have taken it more lightly and not gotten offended.

    I agree with you the most, Jennifer. I'm usually not that uptight about that type of joking but it felt like he did not have that many boundaries. I think the thing that was really awkward was that he was about 40 or so trying to fit in with a whole bunch of high schoolers. He or someone else would bring up something sexual almost about every class period. I admit I did a few times but he's about 40 or so and I was about 17-18 so I don't know. I got this strange feeling, it got very weird for both parties.

    IDK, watch your step with this man. His inappropriate sexual boundaries with his students are a red flag and you're spot on in your discomfort.

    Saying "yes, kind of" to the MILF thing doesn't strike me as inappropriate.

    In high school, I would've taken that sucker out on the spot. These days, I'd probably not care (provided the 2 examples you gave were the only incidents that occured).

    It's hard to judge whether or not you're overreacting with this second incident... if it really does bother you, you'd have little to lose by taking him aside after class and presenting a respectful case as to why he sucks.
