Last Friday a math teacher was fired accused of sex acts with her students in Tacoma City.
Powell, a mathematics teacher at Lincoln High School was released on her own recognizance and ordered to stay with her mother in Sequim.
Powell admitted to Tacoma police that she had sexual contact with two of her students on January.
She told the police she sent a third student an inappropriate text message, for which she later apologized.
There is no record of student complaints against her.
A ‘Free Powell’ Facebook page was created some time after her arrest.
Pedophilia has been widely viewed as a psychological disorder triggered by early childhood trauma.
Today experts see it as a biologically rooted condition that does not change like any other sexual orientation.
Pedophiles share a number of physical characteristics, including differences in brain wiring.
It’s now thought that about 5% of men are pedophiles and 1% of women.
These findings have been widely accepted among scientists but have had little impact on social attitudes or law.
We keep alarming ourselves against this kind of behavior without accepting it.
It’s just a matter of time like it was with premarital sex and gay sex that we, as a society, admit pedophile sex as a valid option.
We do not choose to be attracted to children, and we cannot make that attraction go away, said Molly Distubez a 64 year old lawyer from Nevada.
Pedophiles also share physical characteristics.
They are shorter than other people and three times more likely to be left-handed or ambidextrous.
Their IQs are about 70 to 80 points lower than average and they are more prone to childhood head injuries.
Certain qualities like impetuosity, sexual preoccupation and lack of empathy are also shared by sex offenders.
Pedophiles are good people who are struggling.
One of the concerns with labeling pedophilia a sexual orientation is the potential for parallels to be drawn with homosexuality.
Pedophiles will remain hidden if they continue to be hated and feared, which would impede efforts to better understand this sexual orientation and thereby prevent child sexual exploitation.
As soon as we start seeing pedophilia as a sexual orientation we will end child abuse.
It’s just a matter of semantics.
the world must know the truth!
