Look! The pretty blonde lady is back!

From the Associated Press:
Judge says Lafave allowed contact with children

TAMPA, Fla. — A judge says former teacher and sex offender Debra Lafave is allowed to have contact with the children of family and friends.
Lafave is the former middle-school teacher who pleaded guilty in 2005 to having sex with a 14-year-old boy who was a student at the school where she worked. She served 2 1/2 years of house arrest and is still on sex-offender probation.
After a hearing Thursday, Circuit Judge Wayne Timmerman said that because Lafave has completed sex-offender therapy, state law allows her "appropriate" unsupervised contact with minors. Prosecutors did not object.
Lafave still isn't allowed to live near a school or work with children.
Her attorney called it "a good step forward." Lafave did not comment.

Now I've crunched some numbers around this situation as they pertain to gender and I'd like to share my findings with you...
  • 70% - Likelihood that this is something that would not even be considered if Debra Lafave were a man.
  • 97.5% - Amount of people who would not be okay with this if Debra Lafave were a man.
  • 0.8% - Likelihood that his name would still be "Debra" if Debra Lafave were a man.

(Margin of error: plus or minus 100%, because I could be completely off-base with all of this; I just don't think I am)

What's the percentage of men saying, "daaaaaaaaaaaaaaaamn, I wish I had hot teachers like that when *I* was in school." and therefore think nothing of such a skank preying on children.

Miss Riss,
Sadly, that would be 99.2%. And the odds that the .8% who had a problem with it being called "fags" or something similar is right at 100%
