I had sex with my 8th Grade Algebra Teacher back in 1980. she was great, and it wasn't a crime to me. It was a crime because we only did it ONCE!!

I don't know the guy and hate that he has got himself in this as young as he is and I also don't know how old the girls were but if he was fooling with 14 or 15 year old girls I think they should let there parents have a shot him,

I'm not saying I would do it. I'm not saying it's right. I'm not even saying I would want my kids engaging in such things.

However - people in this country have to accept reality. This kind of sick shit happens all the time. Why are we in this country immune?

This guy is 23. 23. Often even to our South in Mexico men his age marry 14 year olds and nothing is thought wrong with it.

A 10 year old I would say yes. A 14 year old is different. A 14 year old is not a child and knows what he/she is doing.

I'm not saying it's right but I'm saying the fact that some people act like they're shocked that this stuff happens are crazy.

The rate of this stuff is a LOT higher than what is actually reported. I knew a guy when I was in high school who was having gay sex with one of his teachers. The teacher was still young, in his 30s. They had a consensual relationship. I never would have reported it because it wan't my business. I also knew another woman who banged half her male students. So what.

Happens all the time. Put young attractive people together and sparks will fly.

This freak shit happens all the time.
