Debra's not the only one to get away with it either. All females get away with it because there is a double standard when it comes to statutory rape.

Most people will smile, and say "what's the big deal, the boy got lucky". Whereas, if a 45 year old man has sex with an underaged girl, most people will call for him to be hung from the highest tree. Until the "justice" system starts being blind when they dole out punishment, the crime will not only continue, it will escalate.
There's a double standard because men and women are different.

Underage boy's don't get emptionally scarred by having sex with a godess like Ms. Lafave. Contrariwise, underage girls can/do get mentally scared and even pregnant when under-age sex occurs.

Get off the across-the-board equality BS, it's only relevant in the workplace and government service arena.

Kids aren't always victimized. Adults can be weak as children and in a time of sexual desensitizing adolescents can be just as manipulative as an adult.

The kids can't say NO.

Maybe its you parents that don't teach your kids morals that is the problem.

I agree men do get harsher punishment. It should be the same harsh for all who take advantage of a child.

Its not none of that. It is that the teachers are getting bitched at by there fagget husbands that think they are better than everyone and don't get the love and attention like they would want. I have had experience with a teacher before and one of my parents was a teacher in the same school i was sleeping with my English teacher. Yea it was getting around but we made a packed not to say anything and it was amazing when i was with her but she was half my age and had two kids and her husband which i really believe is gay cause he was always at work wink wink or sucking the bosses dick, and she needed a man that would give her some and ofcourse i did many of times she wanted to marry me and everything it was insane but i went along with it so i could keep hitting it. damn it was great.

I would not say ALL females get away with it, but I get your point and agree. I personally think the legal age is too high but I digress. When you have a nation where punishments are being meted unfairly, eventually there will be anarchy. This is just plain wrong and equal protection under our constitution means equal consequences for crimes committed.

You are making a joke but you may be on to something. Lots of dads are jealous of their daughters getting male attention, home schooling may be more common amongst sexual predators than you even realize.

I KNOW one thing....when I was in school in small town al. 1960 through 1972....there was NOT 1 teacher that i would have ever touched with a 10 foot pole in that way! All of them were "ancient," mean, and wore black 'combat like' shoes and was always paddling me for some reason or the other. But, while i was in high school, i had an affair with a 39 year old married red-head and loved it, and all the other boys thought i was the coolest!

When a 16 year old boy gets taken advantage of by his attractive female teacher, I think; " You lucky devil " .

Actually there are psychological ramnifications as well. The boy may be over zealous with womenn and perhaps too aggressive, due to the fact it was so 'easy' for him to hook up without doing much, but accepting the advances of a teacher. Sorry , I do not subscribe that male punishment should be more than female punishment. That is a dangerous precedent in a nation where the law should be distributed equally. In fact , I can make the opposite argument that men are generally older than women in relationships. Bottomline- EQUAL PROTECTION!!!
