Yes, they have choice. But you're missing the bigger picture. They're still victims of a system that's educating and developing their minds. For 8 hours a day, they're out of their parents hands and teachers/peers have a huge impact on psychological development.

You clearly haven't bothered to research or explore the complex social issues that surround and affect teens' mental and physical health. Do you even remotely remember being a teenager? For all I know, you could be a teenager.
In case you didn't know (because it seems like you don't), the teenage body is very reflective of the teenage mind. It's a time of development; Discovering identity, sexual preference, and forming opinion. At this age, these girls are very vulnerable. They may have parents who don't pay attention to them or they might come from abusive homes. Their parents may be addicted to drugs. This has a huge impact on teenage sexual identity.

Exploitation was used by the teacher. He quite literally used his power to give them higher grades in exchange for sexual favors. It was an exchange of goods and services, much like that of a pimp who provides his prostitute with drugs. Now, you might also be ignorant enough to assume that all prostitutes have a choice. This is probably because you are uneducated about the sex slave industry. If you know anything about that industry then you would know that young girls are taken from their families at a vulnerable age, forced to develop a drug habit, and become dependent to the drug. Addiction no longer becomes a choice, but a way of life.

Why am I telling you all of this? Because your ignorant comments heavily suggest a lack of understanding and comprehension of complex issues. These girls deserve an education and mentors they can trust. But instead they got a corrupt teacher who took advantage of their developing minds. Educate yourself.


I'm not assuming anything. I'm open to all sorts of possibilities if you would bother to read my post. Have you?
But who had power - teacher or student? Clearly the stakes were high enough for them to not feel comfortable enough to tell anyone. On top of that, your derogatory language ("slut") suggests a male chauvinist attitude. Which means your opinion on this matter is already compromised. How can anyone bother to have a conversation with you if you refuse to respect the victims in this case? Despicable.

Interesting that my name is the only one singled out here, like I'm the ONLY one who ever posts a dissenting opinion on any given topic in OT. If anyone missed the point, it was you. I've already acknowledged that I got your point yet you keep dragging it up again and again. Get over it. YOU completely missed the point I made about people who don't bother to read a post but post a + on it just because of the person who responded to it. You've just acknowledged it here, for God's sake. :rolleyes: Doesn't matter whether it's relevant or not, it's the name on the post. Sad and just downright bloody silly, that is. How you must hate the absence of the - button. But then again, you're probably a member of that group whose indiscriminate use of it was one of the reasons it was finally done away with......


all alone or in two's , the one's who really love you , walk up and down outside the wall , some hand in hand , and some gathered together in bands ,the bleeding heart's, and the artist's ,make their stand , and when they have given you their all , some stagger , and fall , after all it's not easy , BANGIN YOUR HEART AGAINST SOME MAD BUGGERS WALL

However, playing devils advocate, what if he is mentally ill? I see people rightfully concerned mightily with how a teenager that themselves willingly would go out and consent to this sort of thing, and their parents/how they are parented, but where's the concern for the possible mental ailments this teacher could be suffering from? What about societal influences? Teenager influences? School-based influences? Mental illness is attributed to a certain population who look at child pornography, even some previous teachers who slept with students. What's interesting to me is that on this subject people are so fast to jump on their victim-based soapbox and attack different opinions as if their conclusion is the only possible one. Hence why I + the hell out of posts Bertuzzi Babe was critical of, and watched him/her flounder around in mediocrity completely missing the point.


I believe the correct diagnosis for that mental disorder is male heterosexuality.

Some people morally restrain themselves from getting their fulfilment in life less than others, be it to do with sex, money, etc.

right on brother , it blows me away that there are still people in this world that will call girls slut's and then use that as a reason to apportion blame on them , in a situation like this , these are teen age girl's for f%#ks sake .an adult that has asked for and has been placed in a position of trust has betrayed that trust , and the the victims of this are some how responseable for the actions of this scumbag
now is not the right time to be sober , now the idiot's have taken over .
