It is quite funny that Norman Willacey was eventually suspended not for his action here but because he had an extramarital affair with an underage girl from his school. It turns out that this was not the first time that he has been accused of that. All of us have our vices and apparently it is quite fine if they involve the opposite sex. In Belize it is acceptable in many circles for an older man to have sexual intercourse with girls under 16 but two adults of the same sex cannot consent to doing the same.
