The profile

Constructing the portrait of a student-molester:

Nan Stein, a senior researcher at the Wellesley Centers for Women at Wellesley College, said she has developed a profile of a typical male teacher who preys on his students. Men, she said, typically teach subjects such as “drama, music and photography,” classes that require “one-on-one time, where a surrogate mentor relationship” can develop.

They also tend to own Pet Shop Boys CDs, have mustaches and subscribe to the Advocate. Other than that, there was no commonality that our intrepid researchers were able to discover.
