When a Woman Loves a Boy
When a woman loves a boy I guess the love is strong enough to make her completely lose all of her senses and out the window with her senses goes her freedom (jail time) her career and her reputation.
We have seen quite a few stories over the past couple of years about women falling madly or lustfully in love with young men under the age of 18. Most of these women have been in some sort of authoritative position over these boys, mainly their teachers.
My question is this, well one of my questions for these weird, obviously desperate women is, are there no men your age that you could love or lust after? I mean surely there HAS to be at least one suitable man in your age range that you could date and even possibly allow to ruin your career as you have allowed your relationships with these young boys to do. I am willing to bet that there are tons, I mean boat loads of men over the age of 18 that would love to help you ruin your life, so why pick a child?
April Wade is the 34-year-old Spanish teacher in Memphis, TN who was recently arrested for having a relationship with one of her 17-year-old students. The news reported that not only was April Wade dating the boy, but Wade moved him into her home and purchased him a car.
Dear Ms. Wade, are you that damn desperate that you go from teaching the boy Spanish to teaching him how to let a woman take care of him? I mean really Ms. Wade are there no other men in the Memphis area that you find suitable enough to date that you had to start selecting suitable companions from your pool of students?
April Wade who has been charged with statutory rape has also been suspended with pay from Memphis City Schools. Hopefully (fingers crossed) she will be given the maximum jail sentence possible and be required to register as a sex offender.
Recently I heard Memphis radio personality Bobby O’Jay applauding the young man from this story for finding an older woman to take him in and basically “show him a good time”. I couldn’t say that I was shocked by Mr. Ojay’s statements because he is known for having opinions that are often controversial and at times out right foolish. Nevertheless, I was indeed shocked by the amount of women who called in to the radio station stating that they wished some woman would come along and take their teenage sons off of their hands. These women sounded as if they were hoping that there was some desperate woman listening in to the show who would locate their needy son and sweep him off his feet. It was completely ridiculous and it became ever so clear to me why so many grown men expect women to bend over backwards and take care of them as if they are children. I mean why not think this way if your mother is preaching it in the home and the women are seeking out men to take care of? It would almost seem normal for a man to think that this is a suitable way to live.
Then there was the issue of the double standard which for me was as clear as day. Here you had women calling in to the radio station stating that there was absolutely nothing wrong with a grown woman dating and sleeping with an underage boy and in addition to being an adult she was also his teacher. Yet these same women agreed that if it were their daughter instead of their son they would have a big problem with the same set of incidents. They would be furious if they found out that their daughter’s teacher was having a sexual relationship with her but they would high-five their son for the same behavior.
I wonder how men feel about this topic? Especially a man who may have been accused and/or charged with having an inappropriate relationship with a minor. If women like April Wade are not punished for their behavior should these men then use that as defense when accused of committing the same crime? Is the crime not the same because of the gender?
Personally, whether it were my daughter or my son I would have a BIG problem with their teacher having a relationship with them. I would do everything in my power to make sure that this adult was punished for having an inappropriate relationship with my child.
As this world continues to turn it becomes ever so clear that things are getting worse and more and more people are losing any inkling of morals and sanity that they once had. It is a sad day when mothers teach their sons that the route to manhood is to go from the nurturing and financial care of your mother to the nurturing and financial care of whatever foolish woman will have you.
