    Got the thread title off of Glenn Beck (I love that guy) and a thing he did this morning. Here's the story (paraphrased, haven't found it online yet).

    A 22 year old nanny was babysitting a 4 year old boy. He wanted to watch a movie, so what did she pop in? They watched "Die Another Day," the most recent Bond movie. After the Brosnan/Berry sex scene, the kid asked the nanny to take off her clothes. The knee-jerk response is "no." The good response is "I think we've had enough James Bond for one night." Her response was "ok."

    So she took off all her clothes, put the kid between her legs and let him fondle her breasts. At this time the mom walks in and they both panic, knowing they were doing wrong. The girl's been arrested, but they're not exactly throwing the book at her. The question is: Why?

    Why is it that women get a free, or at least less expensive, ride on sexual "misconduct?" During the latest rash of female sexual abuses, namely teachers sleeping with students barely into puberty, the women have been getting off pretty easy. Maybe you don't think this, but let's consider a few facts. Fact 1) A man caught with child porn in federal jurisdiction gets at least 10 years, as much time as most of these women get. Fact 2) If they were male teachers sexing up female students, everyone would want to nail them to the wall so bad, they'd be talking death penalty for sex offenders. I will give you that men are far more likely to become sex offenders than women, but if the offender is a woman, why prosecute less? The same excuses given by rapists before the women's rights movement are the excuses given for these reprehensible women, only they reword the excuses. "She was asking for it," has become "You know he enjoyed every minute of it." "He couldn't help himself," has become "She loved him." I'm getting sick of seeing these sickos get off with a slap on the wrist, especially when compared to the penalties of their male counterparts. On one final note, consider the "runaway bride" story. At first, everyone was saying, "The husband probably killed her." Then, when they found her and her fake 911 call, it was, "The stress got to her." Now that he's still going to marry her, even after they've proven the dissappearance was premeditated, the story is, "He's such a great guy. He still loves her after all that." If the roles were switched and he had run away on her, the quotes would have been. "I can't believe he ran out on her right before their wedding without even telling anybody. How cruel," to, "I can't believe he even concocted this fake 911 call to weasel out of it. He should be prosecuted," to finally, "I can't believe how foolish she is for staying with that guy. She should dump him right now." You know I'm right.

    The feminist movement has been asking for equal rights for decades now. I have this to say. I'll give you equal rights, but at the same time, I want equal wrongs. Is that too much to ask?

    To make matters worse, some female sex offenders (as in Mary Kay Letourneau ) get book and TV movie offers.....

    And then there are segments of our society that are bending over backwards in her defense....
    LINK

    If you google on her name you come up with some articles that actually defend her behavior and blame her "strict conservative Roman Catholic upbringing", her homophobic father, her mother (who was known as the "West Coast Phyllis Schlafly" and even campaigned against the ERA) and her husband for what she did.... yep, those sicko Catholics and their conservative causes managed to screw up another fine young life.... I guess it was too many novenas to St. Anthony or something .... maybe Mary Kay said one too many rosaries.... maybe it was that oppressive patriarchy.... or perhaps it was her mother's opposition to the ERA that pushed her over the edge... of course, most people who rebel against Catholicism simply switch religions or have none, and many women with bad husbands divorce them... but not Mary Kay... she solved her problem by nailing one of her students.... and had a baby with him .... twice! Then of course, she gets a lot of hand holding from the justice system that allows her not only within 1000 feet of her former victim, but lets her marry him as well.... well, she paid her debt to society, right? Ah yes, I should go to law school and be as wise as a judge..... the wisdom of Solomon that judge had, for sure.... allowing a pedophilic sex offender to actually marry her victim.... kind of sends the message to any other people contemplating such a crime that they can go right ahead, screw up their life, their victims' lives and expect to be treated like the winner of the Miss America contest....

    Of course, can a guy get a break? No! After all Jeffrey Dahmer never got the same treatment! Of course, he ate his victims, instead of marrying them, .... perhaps he was raised by a bunch of strict heterosexual vegetarians.... maybe his parents belonged to PETA....

    People just don't get as outraged about women doing that as men, because women aren't really, ahem, armed. A woman can't really "force" a young boy to perform a sex act, at least the main one, without his, ah, consent. I'm sure it's possible for an older woman to take sexual advantage of a younger male, and underage males, but it's more a seduction than an attack. A man, by contrast, can force himself on a completely unwilling female of any age.

    And Avatar is right: most guys think, "wow! if only I'd had that teacher!"

    By all means a woman can 'force' an act upon a man. Lord knows i've tried, but even against my will something can 'pop-up'...:(

    :wtf: I can not believe that this "woman"only recieved 1 year in jail.

    I have to agree with the mother of the child. if it had been a man letting her daughter touch him he would have been sent away for 30 years. I hate the double standard in our society......

    Her claim that the boy was curious and pressuring her is a joke. Most kids are curious at that age and demanding, tell them NO and wait for the parents to explain sexuality. Anyone with half a brain knows not to get naked with children because they tell you to. The jury should have seen this as the lame brain excuse that it is. Utter BULLSHIT!!!!!!!! :duh3:
