A question about male vs female sexual predators?
I haven’t been watching the news lately, well the last few years. So maybe this is old news. But the question runs a little deeper.
I watched the interview with Debra Lafave. The teacher who had sexual relations with a 13 or 14 year old student.
I saw posts under the YouTube video, saying things like “Oh I wish she had molested me” or ‘Dam why didn’t she choose me”. These were from male viewers no doubt. You can watch the interview on YouTube if you like.
I discussed this with a friend, and here were the interesting points. Women would not post those types of comments. Why not? Are girls more traumatized by sexual molestation than men, if so why?
We thought maybe it was a case by case situation, as some predators are loving, and the victim in love? Some are violent. Some 14 years olds seem much older. I realize though that they are still kids. But she fell in love with this child? Plus we felt she got off lightly since she is so pretty?
OK so your thoughts on this appreciated, is abuse different for boys than girls? If you think so, then why? I definitely think there is a difference but cannot substantiate my thinking right now. Is this woman a predator, did she lose reason for a moment in time, she is mentally ill, or is she a sexual deviant?
