    Not sure if this was posted already or not, but she doesn't look nearly as hot in her current pics. Google.
    Useless reply, I know. The thread is, too.

    17 is an adult. A young adult, but an adult nonetheless. Ruining someone's life on a technicality would be ridiculous, so I say good for them as long as it's mutual. By the way, I would say the same thing were the genders reversed.

    At least the teacher wasn't a dude.

    I know you're trying to be "funny", but it's a good point in that it shows another layer of double-standards that many people have. A young guy sleeping with an older female teacher is deemed as harmless, but people would be upset with 1) a young woman sleeping with an older guy, or 2) a young guy sleeping with an older guy. If nothing else I think it proves that we're still in a very conservative, heternormative society that expects people to fit very clear gender and sexuality roles.

    Agreed, in Sweden you can have sex when you're 16 so i wouldnt care what he did.
    And he got a 27 year old cheerleader? That probably took some skills to pull off!

    The former student cannot be named or identified because he is the victim of a sex crime.
    Prosecutors said they made the deal because the teenager, now 18, and his family were uncooperative with them and sided with his former teacher.

    That's pretty much how it goes. Haven't you ever heard of a guy going to jail for statutory rape even though it was completely consentual?

    Yup :-/

    The double standard here is pretty disgusting. If the genders were reversed there would be outrage and handwaving and fist shaking, with the teacher being branded a sexual predator and the student likely denounced as a slut.
    But of course in this case they boy gets a pat on the back and the silly tart who should have known better than to fuck one of her students gets a slap on the wrist and an admonishment. I wonder how differently the case would have been received if she was less physically attractive.

    Unless we're talking about a hambeast, I don't think it'd change much - maybe just a pat on the back instead of a wild party for the accomplishment, but it'd still be handled with the same double standard.

    /WIN! Love that southpark episode, perfect for this thread aswell.
    One reason for WoW decline I often hear is that its an old game and naturally people get bored with it. But TV is much older and people still watch that. Surely if a thing you once enjoyed keept staying fun, you would still use it?

    I wouldn't do anything, a non-mentally-handicapped 17 year-old knows what he's doing, whether or not it's against the law is completely irrelevant as laws only have power if you follow them and the event that took place didn't hurt anyone.

    Depends on the situation. I wouldn't like to have my son (or daughter) being manipulated into sex by a older person, specially if it was unprotected sex.
    But it seems that wasn't the case, now.

    yet again! kudos! ;D

    I think this thread just has lots of younger guys who imagine that their relationship with their son(s) would be like with their buddies. The dynamic tends not to work out that way in reality.

    Gotta love double standards, I'd be patting him on the back. But if the genders were reversed he'd be in jail making friends in the shower for the rest of his life

    Im curious to know how people would feel if it were the other way around, the male teacher with the female student.

    This happened just recently in the UK with Megan Stammers - 15 and Jeremy Forrest. http://www.mirror.co.uk/all-about/megan%20stammers - not the best source granted but you can find a list of articles relating to that case here.

    Someone else mentioned that the guy the female teacher was with was just under the legal limit anyways so its not a big deal, but do you feel the same about Megan? Our rules for sex (unsure weather the relationship was physical mind) is 16 is the age of consent . Granted this case took it a little bit further with the pair running away together unlawfully but the basic principle is the same.

    Me personally, id go mad. I do understand that you cant help who you are attracted to etc but at the same time, he wasnt of legal age, even if he was close he is still a minor. That and she was in a trusted position of power, which I believe has been abused by having the relationship.

    I do think there's an epic case of double standards though, that its alright for male students but not for female. Just interested in peoples views on this.

    I should try to be funnier, since you apparently missed the joke entirely. Since the question was put to us in such a way, "what if it was your son?" I would imagine a conversation with my Son (future son maybe) would be significantly more complicated had his teacher been a dude. Has nothing to do with imposing roles...so cool your jets turbo.

    Male or female a relationship with a student is unethical because it represents a conflict of interest, much like a boss dating an employee.
    Right, as the world goes, is only in question between equals in power, while the strong do what they can and the weak suffer what they must.

    There is a modern myth that people have always tended towards democracy, constitutions, electoral rights; but in truth, love of freedom has never been the predominant note of popular politics. At most times, popular demand has been for a strong government.
