I was reading some wacky news, just for entertainment's sake, when I came across an article about a teacher having sex with a student. Wait! Before you close the browser window, here's the kicker. The kid was dating her daughter as well. Nice! The kid's dad gave the teacher a restraining order to the teacher (and a high five to his son). The football coach was sickened by incident. (Yeah, sickened that a little runt like him succeeded where he failed). That picture isn't one of her by the way.
Stories of teachers taking their relationships with their students outside of the classroom and into the bedroom are a dime a dozen nowadays. The first earth-shattering one was the Mary-Kay Letourneau case. If this happened back then, people would be mortified and questioning amongst themselves when society would completely descend into chaos. Nowadays, meh. What's else is on? The most recent shocker was the Debra Lafave case. She got a light sentence, because let's face it, a girl that hot couldn't have taken a liason with that little squirt seriously (ever realize that most of the offenders are hella ugly?). Or could she?
I have to wonder why cases like these are happening so frequently? Why are American teachers having sex with their students? I should say teachers in general, as it happens in Jamaica too. But you hear of it a lot less. Maybe it's because the teachers that hit on the students are mostly male, and the students don't regularly come out and say anything. This is perhaps out of fear or because they don't want to tarnish their lover's (yeah right) reputation. But I can somewhat understand this. Somewhat. If American men are as pathetic as the ones in Knocked Up, American Pie and movies of the like, and if the hormones surging through their veins are enough to cause young girls to look like fully grown ladies, then it's small wonder why teacha' is giving your kid "personal attention" and not you.
My name is Emma and I go to school at James Madison University, but this summer I'm interning at theU.com in NYC. One of my jobs is to scour the Web for talented student writers, and I like your style!
We are looking for current students to be paid writers/editors for our campus-specific news/gossip blogs. I wasn't sure what school you went to - I was searching "Virginia Tech" on Technorati, and your blog came up - but I bet yours is on our list.
If you are interested, and would like, you know, any form of clarification, let me know! emma.dozier[at]theU.com
Thanks so much and hope you're having a good week! --Emma
People are generally more willing to come forward with reports on abuse. I think that we are finally respecting the victims and taking them seriously. It's a weird form of abuse when it's the female teacher/male student scenario. The women are usually very attractive and married. Why would they do such a thing? Probably the same reason men do, control and that they've been abused themselves.
