David Mamet slammed over claim that many male teachers are ‘inclined’ to be pedophiles

'David Mamet found himself in hot water after claiming that many male teachers are “inclined” to be pedophiles.

The Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright’s hot take has prompted widespread criticism as he declared that “we have to take back control.”

Speaking on Fox News Sunday, Mamet gave his two cents on the subject of community control of education, after Florida passed a so-called “Don’t Say Gay” bill, which bans sexual orientation or gender from being taught to children under 10.

“We have to take back control,” Mamet said. “If there’s no community control of the schools, what we have is kids being not only indoctrinated but groomed in a very real sense by people who are, whether they know it or not, sexual predators.

“Are they abusing the kids physically? No, I don’t think so. But they’re abusing them mentally and using sex to do so,” he added.

“This has always been the problem with education – teachers are inclined, typically men because men are predators, to pedophilia,” the 74-year-old said.'
