Indeed. How would all the male teachers in this group feel if they were put out of work, as a result of the fact that virtually all paedophiles are male? That's certainly easy to prove with statistics. So, would you like to be judged by such a generalisation about male teachers being overwhelmingly more likely to be paedophiles than any female alternatives (probably at least 100 to 1000 times more so. heck, I'm actually just guessing, but this is a generalisation- so who cares about something as unimportant as accuracy!)? If not, I certainly don't see any place for judging Eastern Europeans on equivalent generalisations or speculating along the lines of "yeah, if he's one of them Polish lot then I bet he approached the Dad to nick your student- after all that's what them lot do". I didn't exaggerate that vastly beyond the original comment...

"Different" in that they do not view it as stealing. It may be the way they naturally do business and would think nothing of someone else doing it to them.

But in our culture we view it as stealing. I would venture a guess that if they saw it through our eyes they would not engage in the practice.

"But in our culture we view it as stealing."


Then if it really is "stealing" why not demand police protection? -the word "Stealing" has an actual meaning.No one is describing anything that fits that meaning being perpetrated.

Because you and I both know that there is a difference between ethics and criminal acts.

You know. we can debate all night on what someone's definition of is is. We can mince words until they are mush.

But we're not going to. This topic is closed.
