Leftist commentary from a mouthy bitch
A judge gave a 40 year old woman who slept with a 14 year old boy a slap on the wrist, and told her that the kid had obviously seduced her.
Yeah… This is no more ok than when the genders are reversed. Seriously.
This is something I have never understood. Ok, so girls physically mature earlier than boys, and most psychological research has come to the conclusion that they mature mentally and emotionally earlier than boys as well.
Let a man seduce a 14 year old girl, and USUALLY the majority of public* opinion is that he should be buried under the jail. When a MUCH older woman seduces a 14 year old boy, you get a lot of “Every boy fantasizes about that.” Holy shit, you’ll even get that crap from the parents of teen boys, who you would THINK would be the last beings on the planet willing to give someone a pass on that.
I had this argument about a hundred times during the Mary Kay LeTourneau/Vili Fulau trial the first go around. A child is a child is a child. Doesn’t matter what gender.
And while I’m NOT saying that people should be fucking 14 year old girls with impunity, I guess I just don’t entirely understand the difference in perception here, particularly when psychology would indicate that the opposite makes more sense. Well, until you take into consideration that people are far more concerned with controlling female sexuality than male sexuality. But that’s another post.
The fact remains that it is wrong to have sex with children of either gender. Period. Full stop. End of sentence.
*Public. The defense attorney, wife and family of said fuckstick will be performing incredible feats of mental gymnastics in order to justify their client/loved one’s behavior.
