Experts: No condoning female teachers' sex assaults on students

The website boston.barstoolsports.com grades "the Newest Sex Scandal Teacher" Rachelle Gendron of Fitchburg. Experts say there is a double standard in society's view of female teachers being charged with having sex with students vs. male teachers.

When former middle-school teacher Mary Kay Letourneau made headlines in 1997 for being accused and then convicted of having sex with a 12-year-old male student, such cases -- especially ones in which a female teacher was the perpetrator -- were nearly unheard of.

Fast-forward 16 years, and instances of female teachers accused of having sex with students and engaging in other inappropriate actions saturate the media.

A quick search online turns up dozens of cases of school staff members from around the country who have been accused of having sexual relations with students. There have been at least 10 just from this summer alone -- and that's not including Rachelle Gendron, the 27-year-old Fitchburg charter school sex-education teacher charged with raping a 14-year-old male student last week.

When a younger male student becomes sexually involved with an older female teacher, the student and his peers may view it as a conquest. They may see it as "he got lucky" and be "high-fiving" him in the hallway, Farchione said.

Is he seen by his peers as having done something good? I'm not sure what the take is," he said. "If they see it that way, it's unfortunate, because they're not appreciating the problem here."

Cottle said it all comes back to the double standard of how society views men and women.

"We can't believe the prey becomes the predator," Cottle said.

"Children are always prey," he added. "They are victims of anybody that has any kind of power."

Whether an older female teacher is preying on a younger male student, or an older male teacher preys on a younger female student, it is still a terrible abuse of power, Cottle said.

Gendron, of Fitchburg, was indicted on charges of enticement of a child under 16 years old and five counts of rape aggravated by age difference. The charges carry a state-mandated 10-year sentence.

Gendron pleaded not guilty. She has been fired from her job at North Central Charter Essential School, where she worked as a health- and sex-education teacher for five years.

Investigators conducted forensic studies on Gendron and the boy's cellphones, uncovering text messages between the teacher and student with photos of them in various states of undress with genitals and breasts exposed.

Even if the 14-year-old boy in the Fitchburg case eventually comes out and says that he wanted this inappropriate relationship with his teacher, he is not in the right mind to make that decision because of his age and level of maturity, Farchione said.

I know a boy cannot be raped, I understand that but a girl can.

Of course a boy can be raped. There are some sick Pedophiles out there who usually start some sort of non profit organization so they can touch little boys. Look at the trouble the Catholic Church got itself into.

Ignore him.......or her.
You see, people who get NO attention in life will seek it.
And whether it's NEGATIVE or POSITIVE they love it.
So just ignore the pricks.
That way the only attention they'll get is the touch of their own hand.
And now this wanna be tough guy Droopyballs or American. You know, the dick sucking Kiddie Porn Enthusiast, Bully, ect.
He's always acting superior, like this is his personal site.

Don't be giving Droopyballs or American anything to talk about, and if you do, don't respond to his sick & twisted posts about kids.
Personally, I think that he just likes to see his name on a computer site.
What a lonely loser. Have a good day gang.

Not really. The kid was wasting his time with a slam pig, he should have held out for a hotter teacher and had himself a nice side piece.
