adding element to parent twice destroys .on(

I have an $el using backbone

and it has a parent

$('#app').html( $el );

works fine, and keeps events and anything that is $el.on('change', '.child-class', fct);

it breaks though, if I do

$('#app').html( $el );

$('#app').html( $el );


Why is this? Each time I'm referencing a jquery element or an html element

Adding the same element to its current position removes data and events. It's an abuse/misunderstanding of .html() in any case.
