Apparently in the state of Georgia it is now OK for a teacher to have sex with a student 16 years of age or older, providing that it is "consentual". What do people here think of this? I'll reserve my opinion until I hear from others. In the meantime here's a link to an article outlining the issue:

Pedos and hebes are always trying to justify what they do. Does that surprise you? Doesn't surprise me in the least.

Any sexual relationship that is affected by power is NOT ok in my opinion. Teacher/student, parent/child, coach/player, boss/worker, etc. It is the spirit of the relationship for me.

JB - your opinion matters very much.

Peace,
DJ

Hi JB,

While your opinion is valued I respectfully disagree. If a student is not taking a class from a teacher at the school s/he is attending it would be OK at university in my opinion since it involves two adults. The person in university is also not mandated by law to attend school like it is with high school kids. My other point takes off from here, that is we are talking about kids. On this point I don't think its right for a 22 year old, teacher or not, to be having a sexual relationship with someone under 18. There is a big difference in maturity and power there. Most 16 year olds is still live lives as defined by their parents. On this point, following reading the article, I asked myself how would I feel about sending my child off to school each day with the knowledge that s/he could become involved in a legally santioned sexual relationship with a teacher at his or her school? Any parents here want to chip in they're two cents on this subject? JS

Looking at it on the surface though a person who can't vote, can't drink, can't smoke or legally sign they're name to anything, such as a lease, is considered a child in the eyes of the law. Given all this I don't think its appropraite for an adult who can excercise these rights and priviledges to be having a sexual relationship with someone who can't due to their age. JS

Since according to GA's supreme court 16 year olds are mature enough to have a relationship with an adult then they should be mature enough to appear in porn videos and when NV realizes this I guess they can work in the legal brothels too. Does this sound absurd to you? Of course, so does this ruling by the GA supreme court.

Well, aren't these some of the same guys who still have a love affair with the Confederate flag??? I'm upset about the pervs who may get a free ride on this one but...

Hard to NOT see this one through ones own prism I think. I am devastated to imagine some insecure kid getting convinced " it was their idea" or "it was consensual"...but that's because that's my story.

I think the question of gender must also enter into it...even if I run the risk of being old fashioned. Here in our context of MS, the majority of us automatically imagine a 16 year old boy and a 22 year old man. I think we know how most parents would feel about that. How many parents would be fine with the idea of a so called normal, i.e. hetero relationship between their high school junior daughter and a man who's just finished college?

Ironically if I had been asked the question at 16 I would have most likely in my youthful lack of knowledge and perpetrator shaped skewed perception of reality not had a problem with it. Maybe it would be fine in some instances, maybe not. I think my current tendency would be to err on the side of caution and not sanction those few relationships which might not work out to the disadvantage of the younger party in order to prevent those relationships which would be potentially damaging to the younger partner.

I would like however to address jbh8 directly and point out that the level of maturity some very few and exceptional people display at 16 is not the norm. Also simply because it's acknowledged that some people are not high school material in the US at 16 and therefore are allowed to drop out of school, not many people think it's a positive thing to do.

Perhaps it's also just an acknowledgment that this will happen so why try to put people in jail for it. This is of course a line of argument which is used in the movement to legalize cannabis. That however, I feel is quite different since the guy chilling with his dube while watching TV land at night, is only harming himself...if that.
