But that's a reason to argue to the legislature to change them, not to tell a prosecutor he's wrong about enforcing them.Susan Estrich is currently the Robert Kingsley Professor of Law and Political Science at the University of Southern California and a member of the Board of Contributors of USA Today.Is it possible that he just likes me but is not interested in me whatsoever? He is older than me, way way older—about 30 years older. Is he acting like this because of the age difference? Spark Notes, so the post that follows is not just me hacking blindly at the keyboard and hoping that advice happens.

If a boy should consider himself lucky to be the object of a teacher's attentions, then what does that say about the boy who complains?

The widespread view that it is only women or girls who have legitimate claim on the state to protect their sexuality is what has left both male-on-male and female-on-male claims of sex abuse in a sort of never-neverland, where there are barely no statistics, few recorded cases, and yet we all know that there are far more instances of abuse than officials recount.

And short of such a right, it is up to the legislature to set society's standards for acceptable conduct. The fact that my fellow panelists don't happen to "like" it is no reason for it not to be enforced.

There are any number of criminal laws that I don't like.

As the headline says, he WAS my teacher—he no longer is, and he will never ever be my teacher again.

During the last class with him, he told me he was delighted to be my teacher and that I should become a French teacher myself.

It's a particularly easy question where the state, in this case Texas, has passed a simple and straightforward law that makes it a crime, without regard to the age or gender of the student. But when the bill came to the floor of the house, it was amended, and the age provision was dropped.

If he had not been a student, he would have been considered a consenting adult. When the Texas law was originally drafted, it was limited to students 17 years of age and under.

Third, it provides the basis for ignoring the judgments of the legislature on criminal law. There is no constitutional right of teachers to have sex with their students or students to have sex with their teachers.

Even if there is a constitutional right to adultery or homosexuality, there is no constitutional right to have sex with your superiors while you're studying under them.

Second, it ignores the power relationship between the woman and her student, which makes this different from the usual male-female relationship, and puts the boy on a different footing.
