It's all in the gender.

Note to teachers with a sexual penchant for young children: If you're a male, don't even think about it. If you're a female - and particularly if you're movie star gorgeous, it's not such a bad thing.

Yet another flagrant case of gender discrimination has raised its head in the shape of Florida vs. Lafave, which resolved itself today with a plea agreement. Ms. Debra Lafave, extremely cute, young, blonde hair, big baby blues, pled guilty to two counts of lewd and lascivious battery on a 14-year old boy. (To you and I who aren't au fait with legalese, that's lawyer speak for child rape when committed by a pretty woman).

She was charged with having sex with one of her students on numerous occasions, and a trial had been set for December. Her lawyer had previously stated back in July that his client wasn't going to agree to a plea negotiation involving any jail time, since it would be scandalous to send someone as attractive as Ms. Lafave to prison, where it would be like throwing a piece of meat to the lions and she could be seriously harmed.

Aww....my heart bleeds.

Today she pled guilty to the L&Ls, and received a slap on her pretty little wrist in the shape of 2 years of community confinement, followed by seven years of probation. Community confinement is kinda sorta like house arrest without the nasty ankle bracelet and...well...confinement aspect. She'll have a curfew from 10pm to 6am, and she'll be able to leave the house to go to work, to go shopping, and well, pretty much anywhere else she wants to go as long as it's not around children.

So pretty much nothing that's going to impact her life too severely then? That's good. Especially being as how she's supposed to be engaged to a divorced guy with a couple of kids of his own.

So here is the latest scoop on prisons. Apparently they're now only for ugly people, and pretty people shouldn't have to break a nail or miss a bikini wax while being forced to hang around with other criminals who aren't as physically perfect as they are themselves.

Glad we got that straightened out then.
