    Is it just me, or did anybody else think of the South Park episode where the female teacher 'seduced' a young male student, and when reported to the police, they police just snickered and cat called and said "nice!" .. South Park, yet again, genuinely hit on an issue and presented it in their own unique way, but effectively.

    Well I would need to know the answer to the following question to prove every man's point... "Did he call the cops, make the complaint and press charges or was this done by the school, parents or some combination of the two?" I understand the law says that you can't consent at that age but that's not what the constitution says.

    Well said Ms. Frampton. Am I the only one who finds it significant that, despite the fact this editorial was read by almost three hundred people, nobody has expressed an opinion pro or con. I find that here in Newfoundland the discussion of anything pretaining to sexuality, at least in a public medium, appears to be taboo, at least as far as the general populace is concerned. The fact that it has taken many years for victims of past sexual abuse to come forward attests to the validity of my point. Editorials like this one should help to change the prevailing attitude that sexual abuse should remain hidden.
