Seeking title for next blog series

If you are a fan of, you know they have a penchant for finding stories about women teachers who hit on their male students. They especially delight in finding these stories in Florida. Today is no exception. A female teacher, in her 30s, sent photos of her "private parts" to an 8th grade boy, referred to him as her husband, kissed him, and threatened him with "divorce" as he has too many girlfriends.

I don't know what is worse. This story or the comments - most of which appear to be from men wishing they had had a teacher like this. These comments are a clear reflection of how shallow these men are, how unaware of the real harm this woman is doing to this child. No one seemed to notice that what she is doing is, what's the word I'm looking for, wrong? A pedophile? Off her rocker? Sexual harassment? Please forgive my conservative, prudish nature but I would not want this woman around my kids.

Where is the right wing outrage when these incidents happen? Too busy worrying about gay marriage, that's where they are. And constantly reminding us how dangerous knowing about gay people is for our children. We fear having them teach our children.

My fellow blogger over at Jaysays occasionally writes about "Stupid Things People Say About Gays". So next, I'm tackling why straight people are uptight about LGBT people. Look forward to some raw and perhaps controversial opinions. But in the end, I hope they are educational.

This series will need a title. Send your suggestions - and topic ideas too.


  1. I wish I could come up with a witty title for your series - LOVE the idea. I'll keep thinking on it.

    As to the teacher, it's always an interesting debate when a female harasses a male. Seems that sexism prevails as society seems to think advances toward men like that are ok, but if a male teacher did it to a female student, those same mean wishing for it for themselves would be pitching a fit!

  2. Switch it up. What if it was a 30 year old guy calling his 8th grade student his wife? No one would be laughing then huh?

    Its total sexism. They're womanizing a pedofile!

    I'm athinkin' of title ideas
