Eusebius slams humourous reactions to Bishops teacher's sexual affair scandal

Eusebius McKaiser says the reaction of society on the Bishops Diocesan College sexual scandal is disturbing.

The private school in Cape Town is investigating allegations of misconduct after one of its female teachers' had a sexual relationship with a matric pupil.

The teacher identified as Fiona Viotti has resigned from the school.

Eusebius questions why it is that society does not take seriously young men being victims of the abuse of power in society?

If this was a male teacher allegedly preying on boys or a male teacher allegedly prying on or starting relationships, even consensual one with girls, I think we would react very differently.

I think there is something we need to check ourselves on that young boys can be victims of the abuse of power on the part of women teachers.

The relationship between a teacher or coach and a pupil is one when you have unequal distribution of power. There is enormous power that a coach has.

Eusebius McKaiser, Show host

It is completely inappropriate for you to think this is funny and these boys are so lucky to have a teacher who is hot and preying on them.
