Cases like this frankly puzzle me. There seems to have been quite a rash of them in the past few years, and yet one does not find a great amount of publicity about the sex abuse charges filed against public school teachers, nor large lawsuits seeking damages on behalf of the young victims.
When it comes to sexual abuse of minors, it used to be more common to see cases where older men were abusing younger girls, or homosexual men were abusing younger boys. So why the rash of cases involving women teachers and young boys?
Here is a woman who is charged with seven counts of statutory rape, although the boy indicates they had sex some 300 times beginning when he was 13. Had the genders been reversed, I cannot imagine that the accused would be released on personal recognizance bond and fitted with a GPS device, as was the case here.
It’s not that I doubt that women any less than men have sexual urges, but it does seem to have been uncommon until recently to find that that they are so desperate for sex as to seduce their own students. And she was married. Is it just me or has our society gone crazy? And have women changed that much?
