“Holy shitsnacks,” is more or less what you’ll say after reading “writer and former lawyer” Betsy Karasik’s opinion piece about the “vast and extremely nuanced continuum of sexual interactions involving teachers and students” that the Washington Post didn’t so much publish as release from the double-locked cellar in a haunted house it rents for its occasional opinion writers to use at their scribbling leisure. Karasik was writing about the “hysteria” and outraged protests over the lenient verdict in the rape trial of Stacey Dean Rambold, a former Montana high school teacher who was sentenced to a mere 30 days in jail after being convicted of raping a 14-year-old student named Cherice Morales (who killed herself while the case was pending) when he was 49. And yet, somehow mildly apologizing for rape is not the worst part about Karasik’s article.
