The Myth Of Women's Moral Superiority

Robert submitted this story from The Age, an Australian media outlet. It discusses the recent statutory rape of a 15 year-old boy in a detention center by his 46 year-old female social worker. The verdict in the trail has been released: the woman was found not guilty. The author of the article talks about the "cult of the moral mother", and the myths about women as morally superior to men which probably influenced the judge's decision. She throws out some misleading DV statistics, but confronts the sexual abuse of children by women, even though she downplays the effects that female abuse of children have vs. men's abuse of children. Definitely not a pro-male article, but this is also a topic that few feminists would touch.
