tomWright: ref tfa: no, i think most on fark think the whole hysterical panic mongering thing over almost-adults having sex with adults is stupid.Breach of trust? Sure. Lose your job and never get another in the same field again. Go be a sanitation worker or something, just not working with sub-adults.But criminal? Jail time? Usually no, UNLESS YOU'RE A MALE TEACHER AND THEN IT'S OFF TO PRISON FOR YOU so long as everything was voluntary and no one was obviously exploited. That does not mean it was smart or that someone wasnt emotionally hurt.a 10000000 liability? Oh hell no. At most a refund of tuition/fees if it was a private school.
fickenchucker: Who said it was in jest? The only thing wrong in these cases is the idiot kids are talking about it and getting the hot teachers in trouble.Dating after 16 is part of growing up. Unless one is saying girls are way too stupid to say "no" and keep their knees together. Because if that's the case, and girls need insane levels of protection, then we should outlaw tight clothes, short shorts, and being in public without an older male relative.Freedom's a biatch, either we teach kids to grow up and live with their choices, or lock them away like we're the friggin' repressive Islamians./Yes, I know it's Muslims.//And yes, I'm serious. Age of consent should be 16, drinking age should be 18, and adults should remember their roles as teachers, rather than sheltering everyone in cocoons.
