Shelley Dufresne, 32, and Rachel Respess, 24, both teachers at Destrehan High School in St. Charles Parish in New Orleans, have been arrested after credible evidence surfaced that they had engaged a 16-year-old male student in a three-way sex romp.
You can read about this nauseating incident here. Needless to say (but as I will soon demonstrate, I do need to say), this is the ultimate breach of trust by a teacher, and not merely rape, but gang rape. Age, authority, role, everything is wrong here. If these women are not treated exactly like two male teachers who did the same, and my guess is they won’t be (the Debra LaFave factor is in their favor: they aren’t hideous), it will be a disgrace to the community and justice.
But you all knew that, because Neanderthals don’t read ethics blogs. Not these commenters, though, on the Huffington Post, which tends to attract liberal-minded readers. As the comments below prove, however, the toxic Y chromosome overcomes ideology. Read ’em and weep…
Mike Martin: The victim was treated at a local hospital… for injuries to his wrist after a plethora of high fives from classmates.
Mouad El Bouanani: Im laughing so hard mate
Dennis Woodard: Lol. Aint that the truth! Like seriously! He wasnt going to brag to friends!
Rick Fitzgerald: When are the ladies going to learn that young men could never keep their mouth shut after snagging a teacher. Much less two at the same time.
Patrick BeMent : Well,, the young man learned an important lesson here. When you are lucky enough to fall into that situation, keep your mouth shut.
Dean Yasuda: If you keep your mouth shut, you’re probably not doing it right.
Walid Osama:“My son is taking it difficult” Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight..
Kris Schaumburg : In all honesty they were doing him a favor. He is now catapulted to Demi-God status.
Tony A Aragon: Yeah, He’s sad that its over.
Qamron Joseph Crooks : Let’s be honest, in some of these cases the “victim” was plenty pleased with the situation – In others, they were actually victimized. Goes for both sexes.
Clyde Daisley: AGAIN!!.. Where were these teachers when I was in high school!!.. Yep been cheated!
James L. Walker : Bet all three got off easy! Maybe two or three times!
Wayne E Naylor : You can’t rape the willing Mr. Akerberg. noun This young man was in heaven, not forced. He was NOT RAPED.
Yes, later on an occasional male tried to make an intelligent comment, balanced by the equally occasional females who agree with the fools above. This is an accurate representation of the thread, however.
I’m going to go castrate myself now.
