Are there any social taboos that would be shocking these days that wouldn't land you in jail or a crazy home? Especially in the media.
I don't see what the big deal is, at least she isn't on her second pregnancy after a drunken fumble or smoking illicit substances with her fellow students every lunchtime like many 18 year old Brits. The pupil can walk away from this guy as soon as she realises being grown up is not all it's cracked up to be, and is unlikely to be any more emotionally scarred than any of us are by our first love. IMO the wife is far more likely to be damaged by having her trust betrayed but that is not considered newsworthy unless the 'rat' happens to be a premier league footballer or politician.
The teenager has been legally able to marry for two years, (probably) sexually active for three years, exposed to all sorts of adult stuff we never did via television and the internet. Her parents gave her a curfew but didn't monitor her mobile phone bill so they missed thousands of texts and phone calls and now claim their 'baby' has been molested. Frankly insulting to those who have been attacked by paedophiles or rapists.
So true there is nothing "sensationally newsworthy" for the media about the regular betrayed wife of a regular school teacher...
I didn't list out all the details of the 41 year old teacher and the 18 year old student. The former teacher's DAUGHTER also goes to this school. The 18 year old student's father died several years ago. I think the big deal is, at some point he looked out into his classroom and saw a conquest, not a student. Creeps me out how many other girls he probably looked on in the same way.
Taboos that aren't illegal are tough to find. It's the death of outrage, as they say.
A ton of men look at 18-22 yr women as sex objects, and only them. Men in their 50s, 60s, 70s, and more. But I won't just say men do that too... women too...
That teacher cross the professional line though and should never be interested in a student, even if she was 18 yrs old. It makes you wonder... what kind of teachers are being hired.
I rather hear him dating an 18 yr old he met from the bar, than from his classroom.
^^ I agree Lamia, I would rather he pick up an 18 year old from any place but from school or his daughter's friends.
To be fair, some women of that age (40s) will check out a 18-22 year old man with similar ideas. Who's not at the gym quietly checking out guys at the squat rack? (Not me of course ) As women are taking better care of themselves, it is becoming slightly more common to see a mature woman looking at young guys as conquests. Let's face it, no one is safe! Lol.
It's a broken taboo, more or less, if you don't mind people thinking you're a crossdresser. People aren't going to be like, "Omg a man in make-up" in SanFran, NY, or some big city.
And you can probably wear eyeshadow-eyeliner and get away with the EMO, GOTH, JOHNNY DEPP-look, or something like that. lol
