"...the relationship progressed to kissing and sex after McCallum plied the boy with alcohol."

Not easy to break down the inhibitions of a 14 y.o. boy.

I really do think that all of this “sex ed” crap in our public schools has gone just a little too far. We’re hearing about this crap on a daily basis now.

I have a difficult time understanding the psychological impulses that would drive a 29 year old women to have sex with a 13 year old boy.

Maybe she got confused what an X Box was ?

Personally, a 29 year old male having sex with a 13 year old girl should be shot.

Do we hold to the same standard when it's reverse ?

Of course, all radical Muslims should be shot just for the principle of it before they marry and then rape little children like their pedophile prophet

Some very astute Freeper pointed out on another thread that this could easily be the reincarnation of Garth Algar from Wayne’s World.

“I have a difficult time understanding the psychological impulses that would drive a 29 year old women to have sex with a 13 year old boy.”

It usually involves something very similar having happened to them at about the same age. An older man, say 29’ish, having sex with her when she was 13’ish.

sick lady.

Homely, too. But her husband stood by her at the arraignment... for now. Not a "slip." The young man said 300 encounters, more or less.

Not surprising at all. I went to a Basketball game after school yesterday at an inner city public school. A girl was walking around in a t-shirt that read “Save water, shower together.” It had the universal sign for a man and a woman on the shirt. No one batted an eye.

I have, however, heard of kids getting kicked out of school for a shirt that reads “jesus loves me” or “Palin for VP.” Goes to show where our morals are.

No it is called acting out and it isn’t junk anything. I unserstand that some need the world to contain certain elements and anything that goes against what they believe creates a problem.

But having experience in dealing with women who where raised in Satanic cults as children cpmplete with gang rapes and torture leaves me with a somewhat different belief.

Is it okay with you that what I believe is not the same as what you believe?

No dear, it is called PEDOPHILIA.

You can believe what you like. However, you will still be wrong.

You also should not be so quick to provide exculpatory excuses for evil and criminal behavior.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pedophilia#Causes

>>>>>>>>The cause or causes of pedophilia are not known.[15] The experience of sexual abuse as a child was previously thought to be a strong risk factor, but research does not show a causal relationship, as the vast majority of sexually abused children do not grow up to be adult offenders, nor do the majority of adult offenders report childhood sexual abuse. The US Government Accountability Office concluded, “the existence of a cycle of sexual abuse was not established.” Prior to 1996, there was greater belief in the theory of a “cycle of violence,” because most of the research done was retrospective—abusers were asked if they had experienced past abuse. Even the majority of studies found that most adult sex offenders said they had not been sexually abused during childhood, but studies varied in terms of their estimates of the percentage of such offenders who had been abused, from 0 to 79 percent. More recent prospective longitudinal research—studying children with documented cases of sexual abuse over time to determine what percentage become adult offenders—has demonstrated that the cycle of violence theory is not an adequate explanation for why people molest children. <<<<<<

Well, if you read the article (or just do the math and realise that a 13-year-old boy isn’t going to be in 5th grade) you’ll see that she wasn’t *his* teacher - she might as well have been a nurse or a sales clerk or even a housewife who was living next door. The media is hyping up the ‘teacher’ aspect of this to make it sound like another case of the teacher having sex with one of their students. Not that what this lady did wasn’t wrong, but sloppy reporting just annoys me.

I think its pretty easy to decipher. It comes down to control. Also she was likely abused herself at some point.
