NBC Affiliate Journalist Memorializes Dead Child Rapist On Twitter

SEATTLE — Infamous former teacher and child rapist Mary Kay Letourneau died of cancer on Tuesday.

NBC Affiliate King 5 Investigative Journalist Susannah Frame took to Twitter to memorialize Letourneau.

 

The Tweet had mixed reactions, as some Twitter users found the post to be in poor taste. Yet others appeared to be sympathetic to Letourneau who raped a 12 year old student twice, and likely due to a double standard on child rape.

 

 

And that final Tweet brings up a point. The reaction to Mary Kay Letourneau’s death would have been much more one-sided had it been an instance of an adult male teacher raping a 12 year old female student.

Regardless of gender, children cannot consent. The fact that they had a seemingly on-again off-again relationship after she was released from prison was the product of him being the father of 2 of her children since he was in middle school. He was gaslit into some sort of a relationship being an obligation, which is why it proved toxic.

Yet, people have romanticized this. People have turned out to be Pedo Apologists because reasons.

This may be the one and only time I ever agree with gun-grabber Shannon Watts on anything.
