(As preface, please see my five-part series, “Teachers Gone Wild I-V” [August 20-24, 2008]. Part I can be found here: http://www.genelalor.com/blog1/?p=370)
Well, they’re at it again, as if they ever stopped.
WCBS-TV reported that yet another dedicated professional, a female teacher in a New York City intermediate school, Marissa Weber, was caught in flagrante delicto with a 14 year old (male) student. It’s alleged that 27 year old Ms. Weber trysted the afternoons away with the kid on some seven occasions between April and mid-May.
Had she not been apprehended in one of her acts, Marissa probably would have had a blissful summer with a kid half her age which, in itself, says a great deal about Marissa.
It’s not quite the rule but no longer even approximately the exception that, as can be seen from that 5-part series, school teachers are increasingly abusing their positions of authority and former respect by sexually abusing children. The practice can’t be said to be rampant but likewise it can no longer be considered rare.
Ms. Weber, it seems, was very aware of the consequences if not the iniquity of her assignations with a minor, cautioning him, “Don’t tell anyone. I could get arrested and I could lose my teaching license.” She apparently had no concern with losing her self-respect nor with taking carnal advantage of the boy.
Her final contact with him, after his mother discovered hundreds of messages from her on his cell phone, was a tad cryptic: “Erase your phone:” http://wcbstv.com/local/teacher.arrested.melissa.2.1023153.html.
Here’s a clue for Ms. Weber: You have a helluva lot more to lose than simply your license to teach. Try a few years in the slammer.
Few say it nowadays, but in our sexually-charged culture, underage male victims probably didn’t perceive himself as victimized. Obviously, police didn’t divulge the name of the boy nor specifics as to precisely what went on in Ms. Weber’s second floor classroom at IS/MS 8 in Queens, N.Y. aside from saying she had “sex with the teen seven times from mid-April to mid-May, all after school.”
The teen is no doubt feeling like the King of the May and is being lionized by his buddies. However, a quick look at the video of Ms. Weber being ignominiously hauled out of her school would suggest she had to have gotten the better end of the sick deal. Marissa looks like she’ll have a tough time finding a girlfriend at the Riker’s Island jail.
Across the Hudson, in Frankford, New Jersey, she may have had a comrade in the arms of another middle schooler. Lindsay Massaro, 23, is alleged to have had a week-long “relationship” with one of her students.
Massaro, a student teacher and a student at Centenary College in Hackettstown, N.J., “is traumatized by the charges and maintains her innocence,” according to her attorney: http://wcbstv.com/local/teacher.student.sex.2.974401.html.
No mention is made of any victim trauma and maintaining her innocence is more than Weber maintained so we should withhold judgement in this case. It could be a matter of a kid annoyed with his grades. It could also be retaliation for being rebuffed by Ms. Massaro. Kids sometimes read the papers, too. But she was arrested, which is indicative that the cops have some basis for charging her.
Back in New York, upstate this time in Binghampton, comes this sordid tale of what used to be the more typical teacher “indiscretions,” more precisely a male teacher hitting on a female student.
Today, cougars, other frustrated females, and male beasts are on the prowl.
Socialist studies teacher at Newark Valley High School, John Puglisi, was arrested on a federal charge of “sexting” a 16 year old female student: http://wcbstv.com/local/teacher.sex.texting.2.922739.html.
For those not keeping up with contemporary sex activities, sexting is the very popular new fad among teens of employing cell phones to transmit nude or semi-naked pictures of themselves or of those they love or hate at the moment to friends, enemies, or simply to the internet at large. To keep up, see “Teen Sexting, Texting, and Suicide:” http://www.genelalor.com/blog1/?p=906.
Mr. Puglisi can’t plead innocent on the basis of teen immaturity since he is 29 but in his defense all the poor guy seems to have done was to sextext a kid asking her to send him her naked photos. Compared to Ms. Weber and Ms. Massaro, that’s relatively tame hitting.
Finally, not to be outdone by heterosexual perverts, a story about the newly-sanctioned activities of the homosexual community. Their “activities” are far more reprehensible than those of hetero pervs since the latter at least involve themselves in natural but no less sick actions and are less likely to leave permanent scars on the psyches of their victims.
I offer this unconfirmed report because it is consistent with other evidence. If it is incorrect and can be a proven falsehood, I await repudiation:
“Child molestation is an everyday occurrence because of the increased access homosexuals have to our children. Former Scout leader and youth minister Christopher Reardon is currently being tried for molestation charges involving 29 boys in Middleton, Massachusetts. And a Bronx, N.Y teacher who is HIV-positive has been charged with raping a 9-year-old student as well as repeatedly sexually abusing a second 8-year-old student. Both students were attacked at the school they attend and where Milton McFarlane teaches at PS 78 in the Williamsburg section of the Bronx. In 1998, McFarland had been investigated for accusations that he exposed himself to one student and unzipped the pants of another, but the case was dropped because the student stories were conflicting. McFarlane was allowed to continue teaching:” http://sayanythingblog.com/readers/entry/propagandize_homosexuality_ban_religion_legalize_pedophilia/.
I hope that story is untrue.
All in all, it’s a bleak picture for America’s schools and for America’s youth. Not only do they have to contend with Obama’s new world socialist order but they have to contend with hetero and homosexual pedophiles in their classrooms.
If not for my grandchildren, I’d withdraw in frustration from this ongoing battle.
