Another case of a teacher engaging in a sexual relationship with a student in in the news. http://www.usatoday.com/story/ondeadline/2012/10/08/cincinnati-bengal-cheerleader-teacher-student-sex-teen/1619991/

What does everyone think about this stuff? Is it really a problem?

Not really. These cases are rare but when one does pop up the press jumps it with gusto as a human interest story. the story generates a panic about predatory teachers and any “perceived” misconduct (ex. a text or email to a student) can be misconstrued as attraction. To go wide on this subject, too many people are losing their jobs or being labeled as a sexual predator as a result of an innocent remark, as an example touching in the case of a teacher labeled for hugging an elementary student. This generates the paranoia created by these isolated incidents. Also, those who are demonstrably predators are generally younger and are attracted to the student by the attention given to them as authority figures. I say that these cases are rare today because of the strictly enforced qualifications for teachers plus on-going preventative measures such as periodic finger printing of all teachers, and classroom inspections by administrators.

The only problem here is that it never happened to me when I was a teenager.

I think most men do when it comes to sex. Even gays.

While it’s probably less likely that female teachers have sexual relationships with their male students than the other way round, I’m sure that it’s also far less often reported by the male students.

No, I’m merely saying that when they do, they don’t list it on their college application as an elective taken. smile
