Double standard in sex abuse cases

Suppose a 32-year-old male teacher in Quebec had sex over 200 times with a 15-year-old female student.
Suppose many people reacted to this by arguing not only should the teacher not go to prison, but the girl was lucky to have benefited from his attention and experience.

Suppose the fact the student was isolated from her friends and dropped out of university due to her inability to cope with the sexual relationship, was irrelevant to the teacher's defenders.

Suppose some speculated the student, having had the benefit of the sex, was now just after money.

Shocking? It would be, if it were true.

But, in fact, almost no one would defend the sexual abuse of a young girl by a male teacher.

But many people do when the roles are reversed - when the teacher is female and the student male.  (more...)
