2. Mr. (or Ms.) Rogers describes a teacher who uses his position to take sexual liberties with (and/or exploit) his young students. His mental workings are best described in the Vladimir Nabokov novel Lolita. The natural setting for this education preditor is high school, where he teaches subjects that offer little real-world practical application, such as geography and oceanography. (Interesting? Maybe. Practical? No!) Although, Mr. Rogers is now seen more often in the community college setting, where he offers extra credit opportunities in the backseat of his car. This deviant gives a blackeye to the honored teaching profession. His actions have a range of manifestations, including prosecutable sexual offenses and breaches of the professional ethics code, but can often go undetected, e.g., from sex with underage persons to staring down a student's blouse or up her skirt, (see upskirt) and distorting the grading curve by giving the highest marks to those least deserving, but most willing. While historically this deviant behavioral was thought to be expressed primarily in male teachers, in the recent past more women, such as Mary Kay Letourneau, Debra Lafave, and Pamela Rogers, have revealed that education preditors come in both genders. It is believed that male preditors are now more likely to become college instructors so they can avoid prosecution and thus are seen less often in the media. (Ms. Rogers preditors are slow on this learning curve.)
Identifiable Features: Mr. Rogers is notorious for blending into the community and is often a respected member of the establishment before he is discovered. A few Mr. Rogers are considered hot. However, more commonly they have two or more of these telltale hallmarks: horrible rot gut associated stench breath ( aka, teacher breath ), legendary bad teeth (also known as Britiish Teeth and Mouth of Horrors), zombie-like pale complexions, bad dye job, hideous comb over, and osteoporeosis-like bad posture. And on some occassions he/she has an arrogant British accent. This person is often conveniently married, which masks their true nature (making them both perverts and adulterers) and proving them hard to spot.
Double Standard Notes: The Criminal injustice System has seen fit to punish female sexual offenders with house arrest, demonstrating the long suspected inverse relationship between female attractiveness and severity of punishment. (Just ask any black guy in prison.)
