Equality isn't always a good thing.
The solution to the imbalance between the number of male and female sexual abusers isn't to increase the number of female perpetrators until we reach parity. If this is what's happening, what to do, what to do?
Don't buy the excuses from men or from women. Don't minimize the harm based on the gender of the victim.
In essence Ms. LaFave said that "bipolar made me do it." That isn't truth no matter the state of her mental health, it's rationalization. And rationalization attempts to turn rape and sexual abuse into criminal-free crimes. If we buy into the premise that there is no criminal, the existence of the crime is undermined.
It also makes us feel powerless to prevent these types of crimes.
For those who say the boy was lucky to have sex with a hot teacher, I say you are feeding the rationalizations of those who choose to use.
