ABSTINENCE EDUCATION

Mei Flower puzzles over the reported crisis (recently featured on "Oprah") of teachers sleeping with students:

As a female teacher myself, I have to say that I do not understand how a person in her mid-20s to 30s could be attracted to a thirteen-year-old boy, let alone sleep with him.
And that is not to mention the fact that I would always be in Teacher Mode, where I would be saying things like, "Don't be a bully," or "Tuck in your shirt," or "Don't say 'ain't'." That is not exactly whispering sweet nothings. …

Then she adds the real relationship-killer:

I have severe germophobia, so I do not let my kids touch me. You never know where those hands have been!

Sounds like a reasonable—not to mention pretty mature—perspective to us.
