zimbomba63: Kome: Gothnet: Yeah, 16 is legal here in the UK and I don't think teacher-pupil relationships are against the law either

They'll get you fired, mind.

It appears it is illegal in Scotland because she plead guilty to "engaging in sexual activity with a pupil while in a position of trust" and will be on probation (at least, I assume that's what is meant by "supervision") and a sex offender registry for two years. I imagine it might be a similar thing if a therapist slept with his/her patient. There's an asymmetrical power dynamic inherent in the relationship and the law acts as an additional deterrent to those who would seek to manipulate that for personal gain, and for those who still go ahead it acts, in addition whatever professional ethical codes exist that got her fired, as a social punishment for violating a relationship that requires trust - not just between the student and the teacher, but between the community and the profession.

How about "in a position of thrust"?  Would that be OK?  Because that's sounds like what was happening.  Repeatedly.  She needed me as her lawyer.  I would have made fools of them.

/ In before the white knights for teachers, who say this seldom happens.

doesn't that sound like it has something to do with Bondage?
