Cases like this just further illustrate the futility of eradicating sexism.  If anyone really thought men and women deserved "equality", then male/female teacher sex-abuse sentences would be similar.  They aren't even close.

She'll probably be able to sue the boy for child support, too.

Daedalus27: People should be upset about the double standard in justice.

Oh please, half the men of Fark are why the double standard exists.

The double standard exists because of sexism.  Not because "men are evil" but because "men are strong and women are helpless / victims / weak".

By definition teenage girls can't want, pursue, or enjoy sex so it must have been a manipulative abusive situation and therefore the man is bad, bad, bad.  By definition teenage boys pursue sex to the point of obsession, so who cares if they banged an old lady?  Men can't be raped because that's something that happens to women and you wouldn't want to be a pussy, would you?  Only girls get upset about sex.  Man up.

So despite what your instinct says, there will stop being a double standard in sentencing when misogyny stops.

/So, no time soon, then
//Feminism, it's good for men, too!

As long as women are not held accountable like children, they deserve the same rights as children.

And the rape victim is on the hook for 18 years of child support.

If feminists were even slightly interested in equality they would be outraged about this.  They aren't.  Which is why I am a humanist who rejects the pathetic joke that is feminism.

TheBlackFlag: Who is raising the kid?

The child is with the teachers parents I believe.  Her parents will have custody over the kid while she is serving her five or six month sentence (good time credits and jail overcrowding mean she will serve nowhere near a full year). Apparently the father victim (and his parents) may be attempting to gain custody over the kid.  Ultimately, the victim here will have to pay for the perpetrators offense by child support once she is out of custody.

Speaker2Animals: Speaking of lax usage standards, what exactly is the difference between irregardless and regardless, and why use the former?

Use "irregardless" when you want to convey a certain level of cromulence.

Speaker2Animals: They? It was more than one teacher?

They.  As in the gender neutral singular pronoun that's been in use for 500 years.

She was whoring around with several students, one as young as 14. She's sick.

If it'd been a male teacher, they'd have given him 40 years.  Of course, he'd have been killed in general population within 2 years.

If he even made to prison before someone shot him in court or while he was out on bail.

She may have only been sentenced to a year, but subby conveniently left out this part:

In addition to jail, Whitehurst... must undergo counseling.

Simple.  The Teacher-student sex Matrix goes like this

The hotter the female teacher, the lighter the sentence.  This applies if the "victim" is male or female.

If the teacher is male; he shall be hung, castrated, boiled in oil, burned at the stake, and then be drawn and quartered.  If the "victim" is 18 and hot, but the teacher is charged for violating the law against such teacher-student meetings....the male teacher shall get a golf clap and a little sympathy.
