"What adult female teachers don't understand about having sex with their underaged students."

See, I can make sweeping over-generalizations in a very condescending tone too.

They say this openly. They are not ashamed; they are ill-informed. These boys have been raised to believe that a rapist is a bad guy in the bushes with a gun. They aren’t that guy, they figure, so they can’t be rapists.

People in the comments continue to 1. angrily question the generalization 2. bear out the ubiquitousness of rape culture.

Their intentions might be good, but their ignorance is dangerous.

Very good points in this story! Education and talking about consent is vital to the health of all of our young people.

It begins at home. Remember the response of Brock Turner's father? Very little discussion in the home about the concept of consent.

Well thank goodness ignorance of the law is no excuse. The little shits aren't held accountable anyway. They're lucky I'm not handing out sentences.

They know! If it was happening to them they would know is was wrong. It is a lack of empathy and selfishness that is taught that continues the vicious cycle.

These boys also see rich kids walking away from their crimes when they are prosecuted. What was the message they took away from the Kavanaugh hearings?

I say have a PSA about 290 sex offender registries and how it’s almost impossible to take your name off it and you’re obligated by law to tell your spouse/partner. Many don’t know that, I’m sure at least half will put that fear in their eyes.

Girls dont owe you sex...why do you think there are prostitutes and most cater to males better to spend $50 than get locked up over a date that goes to far. you just have to live with the fact that girls use sex to get stuff...Trump and Stormy Daniels big news but it happens everyday on a small scale ...they use your sexuality to manipulate you so be smart about it.

Is Time giving a pass to Virginia's governor over his blackface KKK photo. Will the left practice what it preaches and call for him to resign as it has in the past for conservatives accused of similar offenses? I doubt it as liberals live by a double standard and will never call this pro baby killing rock star to account for his past actions.
