Outrage Over High School's 'Fantasy Slut League'Download audio (MP3)
Parents of students at Piedmont High School received an e-mail over the weekend informing them of the existence of a "Fantasy Slut League." Based on the popular NFL and NBA fantasy leagues, male students earn points for their sexual activities with female students. School officials said varsity athletes started the league over five years ago. But officials say their hands are tied when it comes to disciplining off-campus activities. So what should be done? And what does this say about sexism and bullying among high schoolers?
