When a news story breaks of a teacher having an improper relationship with an underage student, does your reaction differ depending on whether the teacher is male or female? (UserQ)

I'm not sad to say Yes. When I was 17, if my hot ass algebra teacher wanted me to hit, I would have.. No question.

This just happened in a school near mine. I know the woman's daughter, and it is EXTREMELY embarrassing. It basically ruined her life, and now school is just really awkward.

Fall on the guys are different side, but could totally see a new teacher grad 22 yrs old falling for a 17 yr old student. Whether they are m/f doesn't really matter

If my son got it with a female teacher i'd be fine. But against their will boy or girl def. Must prosecute.

@MchaMp Try thinking with your brain, and not your genitals, for once. It would suit you better in life.

Underage ? under 18, there's a gray area. I understand 11th graders dreams to date their English teacher but if one at the same time rejects a male teacher and adolescent girl / boy sounds sexist to me. Males don't trust their own gender.

Its called pedophile.
"pedophile is a person 16 years of age or older, who is primarily or exclusively sexually attracted to children who have not reached puberty, generally those under the age of 14"
Sick mind

I'm more concerned with the gender of the student than the teacher.

Yeah. If its a girl teacher I'll be like "yeah! Good for the kid". But if it's a guy teacher I'll be like "ew what a creeeeeep"

Yeah. Not that it's any different, but it seems more weird to me when a women seeks out a male child. I think it's more commonly known that a few men get turned on by young women (not condoning it whatsoever), but what grown professional woman wants another kid in their bed.THEY'RE ALL FREAKS THOUGH

Teachers are in a position of authority and should generally refrain from relations with students but both sexes equally. Sometimes however it just happens. Bully for Letourneau and her lover.

My 2 younger brothers both teach high school and both will tell you that every year they have taught, at least one female student has made advances towards them. It is up to the teacher, male or female to keep these things from occurring, and both are equally to blame when they don't.

I just love the assumptions people make here that boys always want the encounter but girls don't. Teenage girls are just as horny as boys, and I remember several girls in school who made the initial advances towards their teachers

definetly. to have sex the man has to want it so if its a teen boy and a lady teacher then they both agreed to it. a teen girl could easily get raped by a man teacher so yeah it makes a difference

A dude who touches little girls or boys should be killed. A female teacher who screws her male students, that's the kind of stuff great porn is made of

Of course it does. People who say it doesn't are silly. There are "double standards" if you will. A man would be considered a perv and a women mostly not. Plus it depends on the age of the student.

Both are equally wrong but no woman ever "took advantage" of a 15 year old boy. More like made his dreams come true.

This is why I want all things tho say a person did X thing instead of "he/she" did X thing. The same should apply for sexual orientation, religion and race.

@DiJiTiL
Exactly. It's good that you realize the double standard within yourself and wish to change it.

If in fact boys are less mature than girls (which I don't necessarily agree with) then it's even MORE predatory for female teachers to do this than male teachers.

@Patimen
Soooo... would your reaction change if all male teachers that had inappropriate relationships with students just asked for BJs instead?

Minor boys cannot get pregnant from the evil actions of their teachers.

DavesNotHere where am I
08/14/12 3:09 pm

Gotta admit, when the adult is a male and the minor is female, I considered it worse than the other way around. Considered it more predatory, which is wrong, since both are predatory. No excuses, but us males ate just more immature. Don't think that way now. They're both creeps, regardless of gender

@BchStUSA just to be clear, I'm talking about the part of actually "doing it with a minor" not necessarily the "relationship" part. I still vehemently despise two unmarried people doing the act regardless of age, but adult to minor, that's really bad, and often punishable by law, even if it…

@Cowboy: I can tell you're sexually frustrated just by hear how uneasy you are about sex. If people wanna get their fuck on, let them get their fuck on.

Kinda funny story here in AZ . A female teacher got busted by the dad of a male student. The dad found texts that talked about his son and the teacher hooking up... Well the teacher was busted and the dad caught some crap because apparently he was shot down by the teacher

Grade School & Jr. High would certainly seem, and of course is, criminal. However, I unabashedly wish I could've enjoyed 'extra-curriculars' with 2 of my female High School teachers! This does not make me a bad person. It puts me in the VAST majority of like-minded dudes!

A female teacher is more "scandalous" and ends up on prime time news.

@cowboy send the kids to school in Missouri.... They won't have to attend if it's against their religious beliefs lol
