We are now witnessing a continual stream of articles about women having sex with underage boys and girls, most commonly involving teachers in secondary schools. I have listed a representative sample below, but a review of non-MSM news sites and discussion fora will often reveal similar articles on a daily basis.
And yet despite this, most articles concerning paedophilia in the mainstream media imply that men are almost always the ones responsible for crimes of this nature. Further, when female perpetration is addressed in the media it is often softened through the use of terms such as tryst/romp/relationship or ‘seduced’, rather than – for example – ‘assaulted’ or ‘raped’.
A combination of factors are, or may be, underpinning this increasing public exposure of female sexual assaults on under-aged victims:
- increased numbers of women engaging in this type of behaviour
- mobile phones that can take photos are everywhere, so the chance of evidence reaching the public domain is greater than ever before
- increased willingness of (fringes of) the media to publicise the issue
- a cultural backdrop involving the progressively earlier sexualisation of children
- increased willingness of victims to come forward and/or for their parents to press for charged to be laid
And yet at the same time, some airlines still won’t let unaccompanied minors sit next to men due to the perception that they’ll be so much safer sitting next to a woman.
It’s not only that substantial numbers of women are committing these crimes, it’s also the double-standards that apply when they are caught at it. All too often, when and if convicted, the penalties applied are substantially lighter than they would be the case if the perpetrator was male.
And further, it should come as no surprise that this is an issue about which the feminist lobby falls strangely silent. The closest they come to that involves harsh criticism of the behaviour of male students – especially in all-boys schools. It’s a heck of a lot easier than acknowledging flaws in the feminist narrative and/or teaching women not to rape.

Women also sexually abuse children, but their reasons often differ from men’s (20 February 2017) Easy to imagine the howls of ‘rape apologist’ is something similar was written by a man concerning male offenders. The author not only seeks to minimise the culpability of female offenders, but does so in the context of a statistical backdrop that she admits is patchy and unreliable.
Note this reader’s comment about this article:
“The whole “teacher/lover” hypothesis is nothing more than a perpetuation of the BS gender stereotypes that lead to female sexual predators getting away with their crimes even after being caught: the notion that male sexuality is perverted and male abusers get off on sex and power, and that female sexuality is loving and romantic and female abusers fall in “love” and have “affairs”. So it’s not as bad because women never intend to abuse or harm; they’re just lonely and need love, affection, and sympathy!
FXXK this author. It’s all confirmation bias. People need to see males as abusers, thus when a man texts the under-aged girl saying he loves her, people interpret that as him deliberately grooming and manipulating her. But when a woman texts an under-age boy the same thing, people just assume she must be genuine because they can’t see women as true abusers.
The behaviors aren’t the primary difference; what is different, is people’s perception of the behaviors, namely seeing women abusing young boys to be out of need for “love/intimacy” and men abusing to be out of a perverted drive for sex. Society can no longer ignore the increase of female sexual abusers coming to light, but there’s too much cognitive dissonance to question the male = abuser/female = victim ideal, so instead they basically say “sure, there are a lot of women doing it, but it’s just different and men are still the real threats””
Teachers who sexually abuse students still find classroom jobs (22 December 2016) Gynocentric bias is when USA Today’s “investigative team” can’t find a single female perpetrator to profile

“There are some cases where some people are in bad relationships or marriages and are just really lonely, and they find themselves in a relationship with these children,” she said. “It isn’t so much that women are sexually aroused.”
