Mary K. Letourneau hosts 'Hot Teacher' night (Teacher raped, served time, married 6th grader)
KOMO TV / Seattle P.I. (Seattle, Washington) ^ | May 21, 2009 | KOMO TV Staff

Posted on 05/21/2009 3:55:24 PM PDT by Stoat

SEATTLE - The odyssey of Mary Kay Letourneau, which began years ago when she was a 34-year-old teacher who raped a sixth-grade student, has now evolved into "Hot for Teacher" night at a Pioneer Square bar.

But the bar's owner says the event is all in fun, and he hopes people take it in the right spirit.

Letourneau, who eventually served time for raping her former student then later married him after her release from prison, will be hosting the event Saturday at Fuel Sports Eats & Beats on Washington Street.

Letourneau's former student, Vili Fualaau, will be there, too. He'll be the DJ, spinning Top 40 and club classic hits all night.

Fuel's owner, Mike Morris, said he realizes having Letourneau host a "Hot Teacher" night could be touchy and might rub some people the wrong way.

But the way he figures it, "Mary's done her time. She's served her sentence. They're now married; they have kids together."

"It's turned into sort of a love story," he says. "I realize it had a sick twist at the beginning, but they're both adults now. They're both married by the state of Washington. So, it's just go and have fun on a Saturday night - and if people are looking to have some fun, just come check us out."

Morris said this is actually the third time that Letourneau and Fualaau have hosted a "Hot for Teachers" night at the nightclub. The first two events were low-key, and he said patrons really warmed up to the couple.

No joke Mary K. LeTourneau to host 'Hot for Teacher' night

Mary K. Letourneau is hosting WHAT?

According to KOMO/4, the former Florida teacher convicted of raping a sixth-grade student is hosting a Hot for Teacher night at Fuel Sports Eats & Beats downtown.

And that former student, now her husband, will be the DJ.

Check out the poster. This should be a talker.

Morris says the passage of time since the original crime should blunt any criticism.
 

(edit)

Since then, they've kept a fairly low profile - until now.
 

**********************************

So, I guess for the horrific crime of raping a child to become a joke in some people's eyes, all you have to do is wait a few years.  Then 'it's all good'.

Mary K. Letourneau hosts 'Hot Teacher' night

Mary Kay Letourneau and her former student, Vili Fualaau, appear with two models in this publicity photo for "Hot Teacher Night" at Fuel Sports Bar.

**************************************

The afterburners have been switched on for our powerdive into the roiling, turgid cauldron of depraved relativism.

Would it be a similar "fun and cute little joke" if it had been a male teacher?

I rather doubt it.

At times like this I am so absolutely embarrassed to be a Seattle native and lifelong Washingtonian.

My shower at home isn't powerful enough to wash away the dirtiness that I feel.

"sigh"

M.K. LeTourneau is bi-polar. This is a fact that I know directly from a family member, and have never seen mentioned in the media. It makes her wacko behavior a lot more pathetic. The media don’t mention it because it would interfere with their portrayal of M.K.L. as “daring” and titillating.

Perhaps you have been in Seattle too long to remember that there IS a difference between male and female.

That truth applies to students, as well as adults.

Other than lawyers and those trying to channel Cotton Mather, to call a consensual sexual relationship between a 13 old male and a female over the age of majority (what that particular state defines it to be) is a stretch that only lawyers and over-active moralists could really push.

Consider the ill effects of too close proximity of too many Liberals - it causes IQ leakage.

It looks to me like KOMO is owned by Fisher Communications which apparently has never complained that fair use of it’s news stories for purposes of education and discussion is in any way a violation of KOMO’s rights as a copyright holder. It’s possible that they sometimes post stories from other sources who do strong arm fair use practitioners but in this case the story is attributed to the KOMO staff and not to any other socialist thugs like the Seattle Post Intelligencer.

Schmitz was my Congressman when I lived in La Jolla (San Diego), CA in the early 70s. A bigger nutcase would be hard to find. This guy made Ronald Reagan look like a Communist. He was scarey, and put up a very religious front. Then we find out quite a few years later that he was cheating on his wife and had a second family. Worst piece of garbage politician I ever came across. Well sorry, I forgot about Pelosi, Reid and Obama.

I remember seeing it mentioned back when she was going through the trial. I have not seen it mentioned since. I feel so sorry for her ex-husband, this poor kid, and all of her children.

It's pretty obvious she has issues.

There's a female who has still not yet grown up.

It is still a power thing. One is an adult in a position of authority and power over an under 18 minor. You can have the very same situation of a male teacher being ‘in love’ with a doe-eyed teenage girl who ‘loves him’ back, and there is no way the guy doesn’t get jail time.

I’m sorry they both need to be treated the exact same way. You are duped and being duped into thinking they are different scenarios, they are not. One perpetrator has boobs and a vagina, the other has a penis. They are both deserving of statuatory rape charges and for being sexual predators, consentual relationship or not. Technically these kids cannot give consent until they are adults, so it doesn’t even factor in in cases such as these.

25 and 34 is a BIG age difference. One puts you only 7-8 years more than someone (a big sister), the other makes you twice as old as someone. That is enormous. Two times the life experiences, even more because you’ve spent half that time as an adult on your own.

Technically it is a big problem. I would say to be fair that 17 and 20 are not the same thing as 17 and 34. Would you not agree?

From the older person’s perspective, it is equally wrong to seduce a 6th grade boy. And frankly, 34 yo’s are often better looking than 24 yo’s.

From the older person’s perspective they should not be looking at anyone under the legal age to give consent for sex. It’s jsut asking for trouble.

Too many teachers look at their students as a sexual smorgasborg menu item that they have every right to indulge in. we need to get a few parents out there that start teaching these teachers a few lessons, so that they never do it again. Just beat the living hell out of them and suggest they resign and find another job in another city, while they can still leave on their own.

I learned a lot by following that link. Thanks. Letourneau's father, John Schmitz, was some piece of work. Not everybody has what it takes to be thrown out of the John Birch Society for "extremism." Very funny stuff.

But from my reading of the material, Schmitz's mistress was not "very young." He was 51 and she was 43 when he fathered a second child with her. There may be scandal in an extramarital affair for a hard right culture warrior like Schmitz, but not in an eight year age difference.

“You are duped and being duped...”

Argumentum ad hominum says little for your position in this debate.

My point was based on the fundamental biology of man - there is a difference between male & female.

Is it possible you are actually Secret Liberal Man?

Or Secret Lawyer Man?
