Actually, I'm equally disturbed by ALL of these incidents... you're correct that it doesn't matter what the teacher looks like. I truly believe that most of us here who've made comments like "I wish I had a teacher that looked like that back in high school" are being at least a little bit facetious... my comment was facetious, in that I was "warning" readers that this was not a case where anyone was likely to wish they'd had a teacher who looked like that in school.CanadaRAM said:<RANT>
Hmm, we feel it's OK to judge because they don't look like a model? Implying the crime would have been less serious (or at the least, more understandable) if they had looked like Nicole Kidman? Or Antonio Banderas?
The crime is abuse of trust here, guys, not lack of attractiveness. You don't do it with children, nohow. And you don't do it with people even of a legal age if you are in a position of trust/power over them - teacher, scout leader, doctor, priest, police, whatever.
Doesn't matter if it was guy on girl, guy on guy, girl on guy, or any variation. And it especially doesn't matter whether someone could say "well $#!^,
I wouldn't have minded with her/him".
And it p!$$=$ me off that we find this a worthy thing to smirk about it here; writing and reading these threads (and I include myself in We, I read the #^$%!ng things)
i applaud your attempt to make her look attractive, but there is not justification for what she has done.....no matter if she is hot or not...the repeatedness of this type of behaviour is absolutely horrible, and while I know that it has always existed, the prevalance of it is starting to really worry mewdlove said:I totally dislike what she has done. On a different side though, it always seems that a mug shot tends to make a person look much worse than they actually look. She may be overweight, but that doesn't mean she isn't nice looking when she is dressed up.
I wonder if it's more prevalent or if schools and parents are becoming more alert. News of one teacher/student sex story might encourage kids to talk of other such incidents.yoda13 said:the prevalance of it is starting to really worry me
Probably hearing about it made the kids come forward. Molesters often use shame to keep the kids silent. Once there is a group coming forward it becomes okay to come forward.jsw said:I wonder if it's more prevalent or if schools and parents are becoming more alert.
