What tabboos are left unbroken?

post #1 of 30
Thread Starter 

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.

The only thing that comes to mind is when a high school teacher (now no longer employed at the school) leaves his family to move in with an 18 year old student. Legally it might be alright but morally it's reprehensible.

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...

Lets see:

female teachers having babies by their (barely) teenage student lovers (one while still in prison for the crime);

nurses betting on which patient is going to die next in ICU;

Jewish stockbroker bilking Jewish clients of their retirement accounts and living a high old life until caught;

priests having sex with nuns, altarboys, parishioners;

boyfriend raping bsby he is entrusted to watch while the baby's mother works to support the lazy bum and her child;

boyfriend and children's mother drowning her children in a car and lying that it was an accident;

Nope, cant think of anything that hasnt been done. Nothing new under the sun.

Most stuff like that is pretty mild compared to what was done under Caligula's reign.

Yeah, that's why I thought of this forum based on that teacher and student lol.

 

It seems like it's all done. There's nothing legally shocking anymore, which could be sad in a way.

 

I was shock when I saw Justin Bieber and Mariah Carey together...

 

After that, I seen it all....

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 hehe.gif) 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.

Actually I'm not checking anyone out at the squat rack when I go. I'm at the gym by 5am and there are maybe 4 other people there. No eye candy for Dorkalicious. goofs.gif Sorry, not to make light of the topic. redface.gif

Sure! I love guyliner and black nails. Whatever else you do, as long as its not visible (NO one's foundation and concealer should be apparent) - fine by me. Too much bronzer on anyone is trashy - take a pass on it.

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
