OK, What’s grosser than gross? Violating someones privacy. What’s grosser than that? Pedophilia. What’s grosser than that? Sensationalizing a court case because one of the people involved is a model and the other is… decidedly not. What’s grosser than THAT? The comments folks are making about the aforementioned case.

Ugh, after the jump.Read all about it here:

While I am thoroughly disturbed at the possible pedophilic undertones to this relationship, I’m even more disturbed with how the unwashed masses are obsessing about the disparity in conventional attractiveness between these two lovebirds:

 

“ahh. Dude …. you’re a male model…… roll over and notice that you’re sleeping with a pig”

 – Oh, there’s a pig here all right…  

 

“He did the nasty with her? The dude has some low self-esteem if he went for that one. Ewwwwwww! He should lose any future modeling jobs just for being with her. The dude’s an idiot.”

 – Riiiiight, because the perceived attractiveness of his girlfriend so horribly affects his ability to do his job. DIAF, plz.

 
“She should remain fired for several reasons: She has ruined the younger man/older woman fantasy; failing to reveal who sawed off her tusks; she is really, really ugly and anyone who thinks otherwise is nucking futs.”

– I really just want to know why this case is causing such emotional reactions in complete strangers. “Ruined the younger man/older woman fantasy”? Sorry, asswipe, but MK Letourneau already did- because screwing little boys is wrong and gross, yo. Also: “nucking futs”? What are you, a 55-year-old man? Yeah. A 55-year-old man that’s desperate for a crack at that sweet, sweet, young male model ass!  

 

 And while I’m not entirely sure what to think about this case, I mean, not every “inappropriate” relationship is automatically abusive, but some of the NYDN commenters do make a pretty decent case for why this woman should be allowed to keep her job:

 

“One, the age of consent in NY is 17. Two, He was not her student or anyone’s student. Three, there was nothing illegal about this. Four, End of story”

“jeez the city really went overboard here. she is a second grade teacher dating a senior in high school who isn’t even attending school. there’s no teacher student relationship. and he wasn’t jail bate either. as for the photo, i’m guessing it’s just a bad one picked out by the post. there are really incompetent and terrible teachers out there not getting fired and they spend a lot of money canning this one over a dumb technicality.”

“The legal age of consent in New York is 17. He was on the Bryant high school roster, she was a 2nd grade teacher across town. It’s not like she was stalking him like that Letourneau woman boinking her 12 year old student. Does this mean everytime we meet someone, we should ask for their i.d. and cross check it with school rosters before we date them? There’s a lot of jealous or stupid people on thes boards. If you love someone because of how they look, expect the relationship to drop dead, because time is unforgiving to beauty. These two seem to love each other because of the people they are inside.”

This is obviously a very loaded issue. What do you all think?
