Female Teachers Haven’t Stopped

March 22nd, 2011 Viewed 2098 times

kent_teacherIn the many years that the female teacher-male student scandals were thrust into our view, you would think that these would have abated, and yet exactly the opposite has happened.

It doesn’t seem that a week goes by that another teacher is accused of having physical relations with a member of her class, with no sign of it slowing down.

The latest is Barbara Jeanne Andersen, 37, who is show in the picture above.  She was caught in relations with one of her 17 year old students who happened to tell his uncle—who turned her in.  She was texting and having relations with the boy.

Our culture is conflicted.  While it preaches “safe” and “random” sexual encounters, those that engage in this activity still wish to appear that they are not as active as they really are.

So, whereas the culture should look at what happened in Westchester County as a badge of pride, the “smut list” was instead a source of shame.

“We are what we eat” the old expression goes.  However, Jesus stated that it’s not that which goes into a man that defiles him, but that which comes out.

What comes out of the minds of men and women today is that which has been fed a steady diet of sexuality.  We’ve talked before about how there doesn’t seem to be a thing that hasn’t been sold using sex, and with the growing number of people going onto the Internet, what we’ve also found is that our children are beginning to think that sex is like what they see in pornography.

The sad part is, it’s no longer shocking.  First it was racy photos, and now a “sex tape” that has appeared showing former Miss California, Carrie Prejean, in an erotic display that she says was for a boyfriend at the time, she was alone, and she is a teenager in the video.1

The tape surfaced and Miss Prejean was in court against Miss USA for taking away her title—she had previously held the title of Miss California until racy pictures and failure to perform her duties as laid out in her contract had that title taken from her.  During the trial, the existence of the tape caused both sides to settle.

I have never seen a single episode of “Gossip Girl”, nor do I have any desire to see one.  But I have read that an episode that was scheduled to air November 9, 2009 was to have a tryst between teenagers as a feature, and that people from Parents Television Council were urging local networks to put something in its place for that episode.1

To me, this is the wrong move.

Loss of Innocence

It used to be that some things were left private.  Discussed between parents and children at appropriate times, children were allowed to be children for as long as possible.

Today, however, we have a culture that exposed to and trained in private things long before they have ever been taught before.  I believe that sexual education and our sex saturated society go hand in hand to create monsters at younger ages.

It’s no secret—ever since there have been BBS’s you could dial into on the Internet, there has been pornographic material you could get online as well.  Porn spreads whatever way it can because of how it manipulates and controls human lust.  But does a given search engine actually spread porn?

Sexual Sin and the Church

She is sleeping with her boyfriend, left the church because they were going to discipline her, should they follow through with the public announcement?

That is the situation a church in Florida found itself in this past week as a woman in the church first confessed to a woman in her Bible Study that she was in an immoral affair, and then (ironically) tried to stop that church from declaring what she did was a sin.

What Do Looks Have to Do With Anything?

It all started with Hillary.  We had the discussions about someone that was running for high office could show cleavage, whether they should wear pants-suits, and even some discussion about what a ladylike sitting position is—and this was all before Gov. Sarah Palin even walked onstage.

Indeed, it was obvious to anyone paying attention that the bar was set a little differently for a female than for a male—and I’m not talking pay, I’m talking about a culture that continually objectifies the female sex, as does such a good job at masking it as making women feel good about themselves!
