I've read some vile things about this teacher on these blogs recently. I don't know all the details, only what I've read in the papers. But I really don't see what's wrong here. The boy was a minor, yes, but so are 17 year olds who are one day way from becoming 18. The system is messed up. The age of consent is 14 in Germany, Italy, Portugal, Brazil and countless number of other countries. Some ever lower, many a year higher. I think that the law has it wrong, not the judge or the teacher or the student.

People used to get MARRIED at the age of 12 for goodness sake. And you are attacking a teacher and her student who are consenting to be with each other? That is terrible. Who cares what they are doing, as long as they are consenting. Nothing wrong here, and I'd be defending a male teacher who had relations with a female student too.

This is not Germany or any of the other places you mentioned. I know people used to get married young (like 12 or 13) but this is also not the 19th Century. I can't wrap my brain around anyone thinking 14 and 35 is ok and I am sure most will agree with me here.

BenThorne commented on Saturday, Feb 18, 2012 at 10:29 AM

But what's good for Germany isn't good enough for us? We need some type of standard. What's illegal in one place shouldn't be illegal all over? Do morals change depending on where you are? The answer is no, in my opinion. If a 14 year old commits a violent crime, he or she gets tried as AN ADULT. So the law views the 14 year old as an adult when they do a crime, but not when they want to love somebody?

It's not illegal for a father to kill his daoughter for besmirching the family honor by getting pregnent out of wedlock in Afghanistan, Yemen, and some other nations. Should we then allow this in America? According to your last statement, we should.

BenThorne commented on Saturday, Feb 18, 2012 at 13:30 PM

Obviously not. Murder is wrong. Love between two or more consenting people is not.

Spoken like a true pedophile.

BenThorne commented on Wednesday, Feb 22, 2012 at 12:28 PM

Mystery, that is slander. Why would you post things like that on the internet? You don't even know me.

watchpig commented on Wednesday, Feb 22, 2012 at 13:14 PM

If it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck and looks like a duck it's probably a duck!

golfman commented on Wednesday, Feb 22, 2012 at 18:50 PM

And you never know when a swam might turn into a duck.

Well then wildturkey, what have I said that makes me sound like I am attracted to prepubescent children? Or are you and your ilk using a word you don't know the meaning of?

wildturkey commented on Thursday, Feb 23, 2012 at 22:57 PM

all i said was pitter patter. i dont see how that sounds like i am saying you are attracted to prepubescent children. but since you mentioned it, are you?

Ben, sue me.
Your defense of that woman's actions is deplorable.

wildturkey commented on Friday, Feb 24, 2012 at 07:40 AM

maybe you should change your name from BenThorne to BenDover........

BenThorne commented on Saturday, Feb 25, 2012 at 00:31 AM

Forgive me, wildturkey. That was supposed to be directed at WatchPig. I misread the name.

BenThorne commented on Saturday, Feb 25, 2012 at 00:32 AM

How so Mystery? She did nothing wrong.

Mystery commented on Monday, Feb 27, 2012 at 08:38 AM

You are one sick troll. She had sex with a juvenile, she was 20 years older than him, she was his teacher. Pray tell us how that is acceptable.

BenThorne commented on Monday, Feb 27, 2012 at 10:31 AM

The average age of consent is 16 around the world. Are you saying that all these countries with lower age of consent laws are "unacceptable" and "sick"? I think it's unacceptable that our laws are so outdated and archaic that we aren't even on par with the world's average.

wildturkey commented on Monday, Feb 27, 2012 at 11:29 AM

bendover, since you want to have sex with minors why dont you move to a country where it is legal? then you can be "on par" and "average"...........

Mystery commented on Monday, Feb 27, 2012 at 13:51 PM

yes I am. Had the woman been 18, and not his teacher, things would have been different. Wild Turkey, in this case I side with you.

BenThorne commented on Wednesday, Feb 29, 2012 at 12:52 PM

So you think most of the world is "unacceptable"? It is American (and Georgian) law that is unacceptable. It shouldn't matter if she was his teacher. Newt Gingrich married his teacher, you don't see anyone caring about that. But for some reason its a tragedy here in Statesboro.

wildturkey commented on Wednesday, Feb 29, 2012 at 20:14 PM

no bendover. this is the united states of america, where everyone is entitled to thier own opinion. the real tragedy here is that includes you and we have to listen to your stupid crap.

BenThorne commented on Thursday, Mar 01, 2012 at 11:56 AM

My name is Ben Thorne. I blog under my actual name, I wish you wouldn't call me "bendover". You don't have to listen to me, or read my blog. In fact, it probably would be better if you didn't comment here anymore because you are bringing nothing to this conversation.

wildturkey commented on Monday, Mar 05, 2012 at 09:15 AM

show me some love ben dover
