Mary Kay Letourneau Hosts Hot For Teacher Night


Yes, the headline is completely serious. It seems that famed rapist, and former teacher Mary Kay Letourneau, along with her now husband and former student are hosting a Hot For Teacher night at a Seattle club this Saturday night. The bar owner doesn't see a problem with it at all.

Yes, why not make a buck off the fact that you raped your student and got pregnant with him? Why not celebrate the fact that you spent over seven years in prison for that rape. Mary Kay is now 47. Her husband is 26. They have been married for about four years now, and I hope that he is ok, but you really have to wonder how this whole thing messed with his life.

I mean they started having a sexual relationship when he was 12 and she was 34. 12 years old!! We tend to make light of all of this because she is a woman and he is boy, but imagine if the situations were reversed. What would we think about some guy having the same kind of party to celebrate the fact that he went to jail for raping a 12 year old girl when he was 34? I think we would all agree it would be pretty damn sick and disgusting so I don't understand why people treat this any differently. Just because the 12 year old was a boy doesn't mean he won't suffer mentally or physically because of this?

She may leave him for a younger model, once a pedophile always a pedophile

ElsieFire said...

What is really f'd up is that apparently, he's the DJ, HIS idea for the name, and she's walking around SIGNING AUTOGRAPHS all night.

Wow. There is just so many things wrong here.

Pookie said...

trying to get past that kangol beret that is so 2001...

she's a pedophile, plain and simple. her family must be so proud.

my heart breaks for the kids she abandoned from her first marriage.

AnonMom said...

All I can think about are her kids from her previous marriage. They didn't deserve that whole situation at all.

Bad Fish said...

Ugh this makes Seattle look so bad. What a cheap asshole that club owner is. They've done this TWICE already! How could anyone in good conscious attend this? It must be filled to the brim with child molesters.

mikey said...

Yuck. I will never, ever comprehend the attraction. I am amazed they are still married. I, too, feel for her kids - both sets. I can't imagine it's esay being the child of those two.

jagerlilly said...

I remember reading about this when it first happened. I was grossed out then and I'm grossed out now. She is a sick woman who needs serious help and he needs to be deprogrammed.

linnea said...

a pedophile is a pedophile, whether its a woman or a man. it DOES make me sick and disgusted.

jax said...

ya ya....but they are BOTH adults now,they are married with kids, they both seem happy, who cares anymore.
IMO.

Rocket Queen said...

Agreed, Enty. I think a lot of people have eased up their condemnation of her because the two got married - but when you're reminded of the facts, it's despicable - plain and simple. That club owner should give his head a shake.

Syd said...

Here's the thing though. Should she have not married him, to atone for her pedo sins? Isn't an intact family better for the kid(s)?

It's kind of sick that they are being celebrated, but I don't really give a shit.

AnonMom said...

Also, they must be that hard up for money if they need to do this.

jax said...

their famillies have finally put it all to rest and from what i read they are all ok with it, why should we care?
they are both CONSENTING adults now.

i mean really, what does condemnation solve?

califblondy said...

He had a screwed up life, she's half loca, they found each other, fell in love and are still together. BFD. Honestly, after listening to their interviews over the years, I'm glad they have each other and can leave the rest of us alone.

Little Miss Smoke and Mirrors said...

I'm with Jax.

DNfromMN said...

Isn't there some law about not profiting off your crimes? How is "hot for teacher" night not profiting off her notoriety from being a pedophile teacher?

We had one at my school, apparently she'd propositioned several of my friends (over 3 years) before she found some kid who at 15 was still playing with action figures who she "fell in love with".

Kara said...

It's a fine line between not needing to condemn them NOW because they are consenting adults and making the whole situation that brought them together seem funny or light hearted instead of the straight up child rape situation it was.

They can celebrate their love and happiness all they want without making money or noteriety off the illegal way it started. That being said, he's the victim - it's his choice.

kimi said...

She did go to jail and now they are together and pretty in love after all these years. There adults now and still choose to be together and the kids from the previous relationship have a good relationship with their mother now. And yes, reverse the situation, man goes to jail and when he gets out they are still madly in love and adults- so be it. There legal.

figgy said...

Oddly, he now looks older than she does.

You get the feeling that he was a very bright kid with promise. At least, she said that's what "attracted" (barf) her to him. But then, his life trajectory was derailed because, well, he was raped AND then became a daddy at like what, 14? So now he's just some loser fuck-up who can't keep a job.

Very, very sad.

WBotW said...

I think that people really need to let this go. Firstly, as someone else stated, she went to jail for her actions, paid her debt to society, and now, years later, they are happily married. Where is the outrage over Loretta Lynn being with the pedophile who married her when she was 13? How about the outrage over all the reporters who went on and on over how 'hot' Ireland Baldwin is at the ripe old age of 13?
Get the hell over it, people! How does this affect your lives?

WBotW said...

Oh, and in order for her to be an actual pedophile, she would ave to still be attracted to children. That's what a pedophile is; once the object of their 'affection' becomes an adult the attraction is typically gone. This clearly isn't the case with Ms Letourneau, as she is now married to the guy, who is ADULT.

farmgirl said...

IAW Jax.

nancer said...

not condoning any of how it started, but they are married now. he wasn't a child when they got married. regardless of WHAT anybody thinks, they're still together so obviously something was there that's real to them.
she did 7 years in prison and they're STILL together. that says something to me.
at some point, i think everyone has to let it go.

linnea said...

but is it just a fun thing to throw an event celebrating the way they got together?

jax said...

wow, i thought i'd get way more backlash...this is a hot topic.

some great points people, especially about pedos being attracted to kids only.

Have a great long weekend all.
And thankyou for being smart, insightful and respectful people.
It makes all the difference in these conversations!

Coloratura said...

It's the fact that she knew him from the age of 2. TWO. Had they hooked up today at 47/26y, meh, who would care, really? But the history is beyond sick.

I think he has an interesting face. And she is actually quite pretty. At least on the outside. I fear that what happens between these two is kinda yucky.

Ms Cool said...

*shudder*

michael strangeways said...

She IS awful, but he isn't any better...don't make it out that he's a poor little innocent waif corrupted by a monster. Seattle rumor has it, that he plays around on the side with a lot of speculation on whether they have an open marriage or if he is just a douchebag cheater...

ardleigh said...

The fact this happened when he was young is disgusting. He needed psych. help and she needed more then 7yrs.

The fact they are together now disgusts me but they are both consenting adults. C'est la vie.

The fact they are living their lives and making $ and trying to hold or get another 15 Mints. PUKE WORTHY.

Hall Monitor said...

This story made http://detentionslip.org ! Check it out for all the wildest teacher headlines.

braverwoman said...

Mary Kay has desperate eyes.

g said...

I think I would have a little more compassion for these two "consenting" love birds if they weren't always trying to cash in on their story. But nope, they feel compelled to flaunt the freak show any chance they get. Never mind how humiliating it must be for all of the families and children involved.
Now this... The fact they are using her crime to promote his new career as a DJ is completely disgusting. but I wonder, do they think this is cute or funny?

ahdaboom said...

Bizarre. Where are their 2 daughters? Last I heard, grandma was raising them.

Wil said...

Yikes ... I am just dumb-struck by the whole thing. Just .. Yikes!

Julie said...

I hope she doesn't home school her kids.

wow, the 90's was full of such awesome like, suburbia civilian gossip. Mary Kay, Amy Fisher, Lorena Bobbitt, umm Tonya Harding etc.

SO much better than the millenium with the celebutardytantes etc. LAMESAUCE.

linnea said...

oh come on now- we did have that crazy astronaut lady with the diaper!

whole_lotto _luv said...

She's a convicted rapist, and he was a victim. Who's to say he doesn't have some kinda stockholm-ish syndrome going on? For more than half of his life he has been under media scrutiny because of her actions.

I don't care about either of them, but the name of this event alone is tantamount to promoting illegal behavior. This is the same woman who freaking went out on a prison furlough and got pregnant AGAIN when he was still underage. She's certainly never taken her crimes too seriously.

monalisa999 said...

Long gone are the days of "Leave to Beaver" and "Ozzie and Harriet". Come to think of it, though, they were all pretty much messed up in real life. We just didn't find out until years later.

Sarah said...

Thanks Enty for putting the Role Reversal out there. I also think that people make light of it when the adult is a woman, like the boy has made an acheivement instead of having been abused.

Don't forget the daughters & husband she screwed over in the process. The moved to freaking Alaska to get away from what she'd done.

westward ho said...

to everyone who has said, "oh, let it go," or "it's in the past, get over it," i say: i MIGHT be able to "let it go" or "get over it" if they weren't hosting a club night called "HOT FOR TEACHER" which not only recalls but CELEBRATES the past we're all supposed to let go or get over. this kind of winking, smug profiteering is disgusting and appalling, and sends a message to budding pedophiles everywhere that not only is it okay right now but, hey! in the future, you can make a mint off it! wtg!

slappywhyte said...

im in the camp of: "oh, let it go," or "it's in the past, get over it,"

they are just scummy and trying to make easy money ... ala tanya harding ... not really surprising

but they are still together and seem happy after all these years so ...

arjunmantha said...

It does not matter even if they r happy. What abt those 4 kids whom she abandoned to satisfy her sexual pleasure with 13 yr old student. What must have gone thru her husband, kids, family. She got of with it once she did it again with 2 months of release. She mage money of marriage with video rights, photo shoots, now HOT FOR TEACHER..n ppl say they r happy n luv n u have happy for them n this is love. U must b sick to say. at wat cost. She is not in love she is enjoying publicity and money. Will this love n HOT FOR TEACHWERS night justify the future of 4 kids she ruined. She should not even give birth to those kids when she is nymphomaniac in first place.
