I don't think Bill is incapable of this behavior, but at the same time I find it odd that a woman (or a man) would sit there for several minutes listening to a man describe detailed sexual fantasies if she wasn't interested. Hang up the phone!<br><br>Bill probably made a bunch of passes at her and she saw gold - so they're probably both guilty!<br><br><br>

Just yesterday I was talking to an alum of my college, a woman who has been out in the workforce for five years now, and has no particular axe to grind. She told me a story about a guy who used to teach at my school, who compelled several female students to do Monica-style acts on him, including the woman with whom I was speaking. I found it impossible to believe that so competent and intelligent a person would have felt compelled to do what the jerk wanted. She explained the process to me, convincingly. And why doesn't she come forward now to get the bastard? Lots of reasons, not least shame and a lingering feeling of inadequacy. I guess I've indicated pretty clearly that I believe this woman's story. If the bastard were still here--he was "not renewed" some time ago--I'd go into his office tomorrow and kick him in the balls for his disgusting exercise of the power of a teacher, the power of authority. What he did corrupts the entire enterprise of teaching, something I value more than money or power or almost anything else.<br><br>I know nothing at all about the case in this thread, nor will I make a judgment on it (not unless I were on the jury, when I'd have all the information). But that a woman can be compelled to behave in irrational ways, and that after a while the shame is overwhelmed by anger and a desire for justice--all of that I can easily believe.<br><br>
