Female Teachers, Young Boys ,Secret sex.
Mary Kay LeTourneau 34 , a secondary school teacher from Washington,Lisa Linet Clark from Georgia ,Sarah Bench Salorio and others have been jailed for sex offences as a pedophile. It was considered rape in the eyes of the law , even when the sex was consensual.
LeTourneau had a happy ending as she married the Samoan boy after she came out of her prison.The other cases were left with a trial of personal destructions in their lifes, the teachers and their students.
Rape is a harsh word for it connotes forceful actions like a man raping a woman . A woman may rape a man especially a young boy by seduction, even though there is no force involved. It is still considered a rape because he is underage.
Since the LeTourneau case , there has been a growing trend of teachers who had consensual sex with their charges.This is a rather disconcerting prospect as we don’t want our young kids to be scared for life.
They had sex with minors who were below 16 years. It is a crime in many countries for engaging in sex with minors. Many of today’s promiscuous teenagers are having sex and losing their virginity’s at a very early age..
The law has not changed but the attitude of youngsters have turned by leaps and bounds.They are much more aware of their sexuality and are willing to experiment at an early age without thinking of the consequences.
Most of these women teachers are married and have problems in their marriage and have unmet sexual needs. Or they could be unmarried but have relational problems with their boyfriends.
They think they are in love with those young boys who look up to them because they were their teachers .These boys are not matured but only little kids with a man’s body. Even a 25 year old man may not be considered matured for his age.
There was a case of a Malaysian female primary school teacher who was not getting along with her husband .They were always fighting and not seeing eye to eye on many issues and were not on speaking terms.
She began to dote on one of her top students like a Godson. The student was from a poor family and they were happy that the son’s teacher were giving him extra attentions and took care of his needs.
The teacher even asked the boy to stay at her home and she took him everywhere she went. The boy was abit more matured than his age .
Naturally , the boy thought the teacher loved him and he began to have feelings for her .He even wrote love letters to that teacher. Whether they had sex or not , we don’t know but the boy grew up and went to the university and they became separated.
In the US , that teacher would be charged but here in Malaysia, it was no case and the parents did not look at from this angle.
At that age when the boys are aware of their growing sexuality and she being the more matured and experienced and in moments of weakness can lead them all the way.
There are also men teachers who rape their underaged students as in the case in China. Teaching is a respectable and honourable job and it has been tarnished by a few who could not separate their personal life from their professional life.
