Sorry to stay off-topic LOL. I agree that the term 'pedophilia' can be used incorrectly but I do think that there is a difference between a 17 year old high school student having sex with a teacher vs a college freshman having sex with their professor. The difference is that in high school, the relationship between a teacher and a student is one of those relationships that the law/society considers a "relationship of trust and confidence" - meaning one person is in a weaker position vis a vis the other person and places a great amount of trust and reliance on the stronger person. Doctors/patients and lawyers/clients are the same. If a doctor had sex with their patient, the doctor would lose their medical licence. The law does not treat college professors and college students in the same way.

Anyway, I am definitely even more off topic than before because this doesn't really have anything to do with pedophilia and most certainly has nothing to do with Gemma Ward!
I mean I kinda agree, but it's still highly unprofessional, if you're an uni teacher or a high school one, you're working and shouldn't be looking at your students THAT way, underage or not. It's also very predatory coming from the teacher, since he has a certain power with his students and it's not fair when you hear about girls sleeping with their old male teacher just to get better grades, it happens a lot and it's disgusting. It's ok as a fantasy, or maybe keeping a contact with him when you graduated, but it's really a gross situation when it happens irl. The dynamics of a teacher/student relationship are completely different compared to the one a doctor can have with his patient. Like it might be unprofessional but it's definitely not the same

Also, I do agree that it's such a weird thing that if a teacher goes with a 17 yr old he's a pedo but if the girl (or the guy) is 18 then it's ok....like does a year really make a difference?

18 years is when you're "legally" an adult, so yeah it makes sense. Also, I also think there's a big difference between an 18 year old high school senior vs an 18 year old college freshman. In Australia at least, students have around 5 months' between finishing school and starting college/university. In my experience, I did a lot of growing up in that short period of time - I worked part-time, went out to pubs and clubs, had sex for the first time, learnt to drive and I socialised with a wider group of people. I had a lot of "life" experiences that students in high school just don't get. I was definitely more mature than some of my friends who were in the grade below me at school but were the same age (I was young for my grade). IDK - yeah 17 vs 18 year old seems so trivial but a person really does a lot of growing up in that period of time.

Why, Gemma, why... :( I saw those "MILF" photos on her instagram, but I didn't realize they were related to that awful music video.

At this point, I just feel bad for her. :(
I completely agree. She did just announce she's pregnant with her second kid. But it's still a little early for arms like that I would say.
