This is a toughie: Teacher-Sex-Scandals

(Hot For) Math Teacher Stephanie Ragusa

So, surprise, another teacher has been busted for having sex with an underage male student. I mean, whatevs. But the difference between Stephanie Ragusa and Mary Kay LeTourneau is that MKT was in love with her student/lover and married him after she got out of jail; Ragusa seems to just like a little bit of underaged cock from time to time.

Since I defend R. Kelly and his (alleged) sexual encounters with (allegedly) underaged girls, I'll entertain a defense of Ragusa and boy.

First of all, can we agree that these teacher-sex cases demonstrate that the idea that women are only attracted to older or equal-age men is a myth? Our sexual scripts are so narrowly defined that we are shocked--utterly shocked--that a woman of a certain age could be attracted to and--gasp!--have sex with a much younger man.

I'll admit, Ragusa sounds pretty predatory. But the charges are pretty hot, though: five counts of lewd and lascivious battery.
