STOCKHOLM, Sweden, May 20 (UPI) -- A Swedish adult education student said said she was kicked out of school for taking a job as a stripper and working part time as a prostitute.

The Stockholm student, whose name was not released, charged the school with discrimination in a report to the Swedish Equality Ombudsman.

She said she was called to a meeting with a teacher and the school's principal in February to discuss her employment, The Local reported Friday.

"They said that it goes against the school's values and that students had been harmed by me being so open about what I do," the student wrote.

The student said she was told her moneymaking activities supported the view of women as sexual objects.

"I said I have never felt like an object but rather found the whole experience pleasurable," the report states.

The student said she was told she "must have a problem" to have that view of her stripping and prostitution careers. She said she was told not to return to the school.
