Just as it doesn’t make the situation any better that Symone Greene was only a substitute teacher it doesn’t make it any better that just was a young woman having sexual relations with a man. And it certainly shouldn’t matter that it was only oral sex. Child molestation is still child molestation and the Washington DC Police Department felt the same way as they set up a minor texting sting to catch Greene.
Apparently the no so smart educator decided to perform oral sex on high school football player in a classroom and expected the student not to go back and tell all of his friends? Did this woman even go to high school??? Of course he’s going to run back and tell all of his friends. He’s a 17 year old football player!!! Well the student not only ran back and told all of his friends, he made a video of the incident. So there’s hard evidence and we call all rest assured that this predator is going to jail. No, I don’t think her sentence needs to be light, although the courts will probably take into account the age of consent and the age and number of this woman’s past offenses. But tell me why is it that we don’t view female teacher/child offenders the same as we do males? The crime really is the same, yet many think it isn’t. Many people feel like it’s a young male student’s dream to get dome from his teacher and if she’s willing then what’s the problem? That idea alone says a lot about how we feel about women in this country, and it’s not good.
She didn’t make a mistake. She knew what she was doing was wrong when she was doing it and she needs to suffer the consequence. Pretty young teachers don’t get a pass.
