SILOAM SPRINGS — Siloam Springs police have charged a 32-year-old teacher in the rape of a 13-year-old boy.

KHOG-TV reported that police arrested Mary Faith McCormick on Wednesday evening. She's listed as a teacher on the Siloam Springs Intermediate School website.

Police say she started the relationship with a former student between June and July using the smartphone application Snapchat. They say she sent the teenager a picture of her breasts.

The teenager told police he had consensual sex with McCormick.

Superintendent Ken Ramey said McCormick is suspended pending the outcome of an investigation.

Online jail records didn't indicate an attorney for McCormick.

I didn't get a picture, did you? When I was in high school, the women teachers were so ugly they would make a freight train take a gravel road. Oh, the be young again!!!!!!

So... If it were a male teacher we would feel the same way?
I think not. Child abuse (even if it is perceived as pleasant) is still abuse.

"Society's problem." We recognize that some people do not grasp the difference between the possessive and plural forms of words. We also recognize that some people like to engage in sweeping generalizatons and other logical fallacies.

You surely know that 13 year old boy would not have regarded himself as a victim until the media/social workers/psychologists/police/and probably his mama got ahold of him. There's even a good possibility if only he and his dad knew, there might be high-fives and possibly a celebratory beer.

In many societies 13 is not at all considered too young for sex, and also in some there are traditions of older experienced women doing the initiation.

Granted, in our culture we are likely to view the woman as suffering from a case of arrested development, but since when is that a crime? Plenty of arrested development to be seen, and much of it applauded and glorified. For example, the off-field or off-stage antics of many of our sports and entertainment idols.

Are we so horrified by sexual abuse we throw nature under the bus? Yep we are.

And grammar nazis, please, your academic superiority hardly translates to moral superiority.

We do not recognize absurd, contradictory, and ridicilous ancient myths. Therefore, the "devil" argument is a moot point. Does your particular form of Christianity (and there are so many!) not wish to protect children? The established laws of our land strive to do so. Do you disagree with the laws protecting children from predatory adults? Are males the only predators within our society?
