Teacher suspended after remarks about female students wearing gym clothes in Turkey’s Konya
On his Twitter account, Ercan Harmancı, a philosophy teacher at a religious vocational high school in Konya, said that if a man does not get attracted when he sees the body of a young woman wearing gym gear, he should question his manhood.
“Either I have some kinky thoughts or the devil does not whisper to them. If the devil does not whisper to you when you see the young girl’s figure, it means that you lost your manhood or faith,” he wrote.
He also said P.E. classes should be an optional course for students, adding that the class was “preparing girls for the devil.”
“When girls are in sportswear it’s like they become nude. Is adultery common in schools? Yes. If someone says adultery cannot be committed with hands, tongue and eyes, then they do not know the religion of the Prophet Mohammed,” he said.
An investigation has been launched against him.
