Seriously. Not All Blonds Are Stupid
Debra Lafave, former teacher and child molester, had some interesting words of wisdom about her legal battle. According to the snippets released on CNN her interview with Matt Lauer really brought out her inner dumb blond.
So, get this, she’s a kindhearted person who loves kids, wouldn’t break the law, and only had sex with a young boy under some pretty odd circumstances because she was feeling a little bi-polary that month. Only she did break the law in a really big way, she did have sex with a young boy under some pretty odd circumstances when she really should have known better, and it’s her love of kids (in the bad way) that got her in trouble in the first place.
For all that, we get to hear about how the sexual predator doesn’t think of herself as a sexual predator because, while she didn’t think of it as rape, she thinks it was a “really, really, really bad choice.” Sometimes really, really, really bad choices are precisely the things that get you tagged as a sexual predator; especially when they lead you to become sexually involved with one of your 14 year old students. No matter how much the boy wanted to do it, the adult is supposed to know better.
Deb Lafave is an idiot who was lucky to get a relatively light sentence; if she had been a male gym coach carrying on with a 14 year old girl, the resulting public outcry and sentence would likely have been a lot more painful. Yet she is idiot enough to find excuses for inexcusable behavior, shallow enough to think that she really needs to share her side of the story in a nationally televised interview, and really tone-deaf enough to think that calling it a “really, really, really bad choice” somehow manages to make her more sympathetic or her actions more understandable.
Despite the title, I’m pretty sure that her stupidity isn’t related to her hair color; it’s goes straight to the bone.
