    equal rights but not equal responsibilities!

    Cases of female teachers caught having sex with male students have made the headlines recently. But some experts think it's only the tip of the iceberg as they contend boys are less likely to report sex crimes than girls.

    "Boys just live in a world, because of our society, that doesn't really code sexual exploitation of them by a female as very serious," said Hofstra University professor Charol Shakeshaft.

    What experts debate is whether that social double standard translates into a legal one. Some legal analysts say the courts are more likely to show mercy to female teachers than their male counterparts.

    "When it comes to sentencing for these kind of crimes, men and women are not created equally. Women get predominantly lighter sentences than men do for child molestation and for abusing children in a sexual way," said FNC legal analyst Lis Wiehl.

    Nicole Pomerleau (search), a high-school English teacher in Charlotte, N.C., admitted she had sex with a 16-year-old male student. She did not get prison time and did not have to register as a sex offender.

    How many of the older guys on the site would have reported a sexual offense if one of their high school teachers hit on them? I find it disgusting and immoral now. When I was 16 I don't think I would have argued.

    i think i would have been scared. i cant beleive the double standard- until we start treating women who screw up the same way we treat men who screw up things will not change. men are held to a much higher level of responsibility then women. -------

    Yeah, as a liberal white person, I have to say I like other white folks (for the record, I like lots of other color folks, save those painted green & gold).

    Re: equal rights but not equal responsibilities!

    What about the case way back when, where the lady cut off her husbands unit. She then through it out her car window into a field, because he was cheating on her. She got some ridiculous light sentence, something like 6 months in jail.

    If her husband had cut her breasts off, he would have gotten 20 years.

    There are double standards.

    The same goes for girls that have babies and through them in the garbage, they get very light sentence. For killing a person that is completely helpless.
    What we've got here is failure to communicate.
