Good evening. May all be well or on the mend. I just watched a segment on 20/20 regarding a female teacher sexually abusing a 14/15 year old male student. News article: Kathryn Camille Murray, Texas teacher, sentenced for having sex with 15-year-old boy - CBS News It's not a new phenomenon. The big list: Female teachers with students When I first heard about Mary Kay Letourneau I started researching. Who, what, where, when...WHY???? The thought of a FEMALE teacher who would sexually abuse/rape a male student and have that student fall in love and defend their teacher stumped me. I continued to research and I learned a lot. My question to you, SKMB members, please. Why do I have an instant visceral, nauseating, and VIOLENT response? I study serial killers in the hope of becoming a profiler and I can compartmentalize my emotions. I HAVE to keep my emotions in check to be able to find the serial killer and bring them to justice. Yet, when I read about these teachers/molesters/rapists...I ...react so differently. My first thought is violence. I asked my son, "If you had a 14/15 year old son and you found out that a female teacher had been having a sexual relationship with him how do you think you would react? He thought about it and said, "I would call the nearest friend or family member and tell them what I had discovered and beg them to call the police and come get me before I went to that teachers house and beat the sh!t out them. I would call 9-1-1 and tell them, BEG them, to stop me and/or go and protect that teacher before I can get to her." He continued, " I don't care if it's a female or male teacher who raped my child. I know I would be crazed and be hell bent on hurting that person." I was fascinated. My son is a wonderfully intelligent, laid back, and understanding young man. He has been through a lot of hardships and cuts people an enormous amount of slack. I asked him why he would behave so violently-it's totally against his nature to be violent. And he told me, "This is my child. 14/15 years old. S/he has no experience in defending themselves. Against a predator who is an adult and an authority figure. I would f*cking kill them if no one stopped me." That was ...stunning. BTW- I asked his permission to quote him on this thread. Beside me being long-winded, what do you think? What do you think about the growing incidents of female teachers molesting/raping their male students? How do you think you would react? Any and all responses are appreciated. Peace.
