So I was watching the news the other day and I see (yet another) sex scandal involving a Hot @ss teacher and a underage boy. I am so sick to death about hearing of these things and I hate all these morons that jump on the bandwagon to condemn her and call the 14 year old boy a "victim". If he's a victim then I'm the King of Prussia!!! What a load of bull!!! I'm not saying she didn't do something wrong, she did. She abused her position as a teacher that gave her access to children, but that's about it. The "kid" is JUST AS GUILTY as she is. When I was 14 I would have sold my soul to the devil for the chance to tap a smoking hot teacher like her and I don't know any normal 14 year old boy that wouldn't have done the same. Do any of you other guys out there remember how you felt when you were 14 years old? I sure do. Raging hormones, constantly thinking about girls and how to get them naked, day dreaming about being locked in a closet with your smoking hot science teacher...er...nm.
Today's society is so quick to jump and demonize people for their sexual actions it isn't funny. You know what would have happened if this type of thing would have occurred back in the 1950's? NOTHING!!! She would still be a teacher, though maybe one getting a divorce, the kid would have gotten a *High Five* from his Dad for bagging a hottie like her at such a young age, and maybe when he was a few years older and got out of school the kid and the teacher would have probably ended up together. There wouldn't be a big trial, no media coverage, No WASTE OF TAX PAYER MONEY, and more importantly NO ONE'S LIFE WOULD HAVE BEEN RUINED. Not in Today's World though, oh no!!! In Today's World this woman is a monster who prays on children and the kid is seen as a "victim" instead of what he really is, a Horny Teenage Boy.
These aren't my views just because the so called "criminal" is a woman and the "victim" is a boy either. It would be the same in my eyes if the sexes were reversed. Why, you ask? Because teenage girls are just as horny as teenage boys and unless there was actual "Rape" involved then that means the "minor" went along with it knowing full well what they were doing. Just because someone may be a "minor" in the eyes of the Law doesn't mean they're stupid and can be "lead astray" or "talked into" doing something they don't want to do, though that can happen too.
Another thing the courts and our so called "justice system" FAILS to see is the "Human Nature" factor that goes into things like this. Case in point, High School Girls. Tell me if this sounds familiar to you...
When I was in Middle School and High School I knew tons of girls that REFUSED to date guys their own age. It's common knowledge and a scientific reality that girls mature mentally a little faster then boys of the same age range. Because of this younger girls in their teens OFTEN go after guys in their early 20's. They do this because these guys have money, cars, access to alcohol and other drugs, and these guys are seen as "cool" by the girls. It's also a big Status symbol for a teenage girl (15-16-17) to tell her classmates she's dating a "older man". She also gets to tell all the guys her age to get lost because they can't offer her the same advantages I mentioned that a slightly older guy can. Also for Hundreds of Years, it was commonly practiced and accepted behavior for parents to marry their daughters off at a young age, often to increase the social standing of a family, or to secure a political alliance, or for a bunch of other reason. The family marrying off their 15 year old daughter to a 35 year old man who was a land-holder had no problem giving away their daughters hand in marriage. You didn't need to be a rich family or a poor family trying to increase your standing for this to happen either.
Even in times as recently past as the 1940's , 1950's , and 1960's, it was common practice for families that lived in rural areas to marry off their daughters and sons into the neighboring family because there weren't any other families within a close enough distance for their children to have a lot of options in who they could date or marry. It happened all the time. No fuss, no muss, no accusations, no deviant behavior, no lives ruined, everyone was happy. A 22 year old man marrying a 15 year old girl was common place and happened in every town in the country and the man WAS NOT CONSIDERED a sexual predator or a monster.
What the Law Makers don't realize, or won't say openly because of all the prudish views our society has, is that all these "Sex Laws" go against HUNDREDS of Years of Human Evolution. Younger woman like older men, younger guys like older women, and vice verses. It's also been scientifically proven that males usually reach their sexual peak in their teens and early 20's while women reach their peak in between their mid 30's to mid 40's. That's the NATURAL LAW. That's the way our genetics are programmed. Yet all these "man made" laws go against that and I think they set it up that way on purpose. What people also fail to see is that our "Legal System" is set up as a BUSINESS. It makes HUGE amounts of money off of prosecuting and housing "criminals". It makes money by keeping so called "criminals" tied up in the legal system paying probation fines and fee's for YEARS. Maybe you should look into your state's income reports sometime. I live in Florida and as a Floridian I check these things. Did you know in the late 90's Incarceration surpassed Tourism as Florida's number one source of income? That's right.....the state of Florida MAKES MORE MONEY FROM KEEPING PEOPLE IN JAIL then it does from MICKEY MOUSE. How sad is that? We have a saying here in Florida and it goes like this.... "Come to Florida on Vacation, leave on Probation, come back on Violation." .
So in the end, I'm not saying this teacher didn't do something wrong, she did, but the punishment should fit the crime, which I'm sure it WON'T. She'll be demonized and persecuted, jailed for god knows how long, and spend the rest of her life as a Sex Offender or worse. Is that "fair" or "just" ? HELL NO!!!! I guarantee if they ASK THE KID if he ENJOYED his "Activity" with his teacher (and if he's being honest and not afraid of being punished) he's going to say "HELL YES I ENJOYED IT!!! HAVE YOU SEEN HOW FINE SHE IS?". Meanwhile, because she gave into her more basic instincts and she gave into the boys advances, her life is ruined forever. Something needs to be done to change these Draconian laws regarding sex in our society. The "Law" should have No Bearing At All on who someone wants to be with unless someone is being Forced to do something they don't want to do, I.E. being Raped or Molested, NOT for Agreeing to Consensual Sex with a hot teacher or someone who's slightly older or younger then they are.
