B.L.Z. Bub: How many kids have you diddled, you sick fark?


None you slanderous, beef-witted, sallow-skinned corpuscle. I've always dated older women. An indeed nature has seen fit to create this thing called puberty whereby you can pretty much draw the line.

Drawing upon that oft used chestnut of how to identify what is wrong: We shall know it when we see it. In Saudi Arabia, there's outrage over a 15 year old girl who was sold to a 90 year old man to be his wife. We can all agree that's wrong. Both the age difference, which is horrible, and the selling of the daughter, which is much more horrible. Saudi Arabia's messed up.

But in the States, thanks to people's attempts to quantify numerically what cannot be quantified numerically, there is or was a boy of 18 sentenced to 10 years hard time for a consensual relationship with his 17 year old girlfriend at the time. Such insanity is the hallmark of poor legal practices and there is no potential good that might be gained by having a law that would allow such a miscarriage of justice to occur on the books for any length of time. Far better to keep it case by case than risk ruining lives that would have been happy but for an arbitrary number produced ex recto.

Nice graphic you got there, too bad it's a lie.
Unreported incidents are just that, unreported. And hard to pin down. The source information for that graphic is from the Statistics from Justice Department, National Crime Victimization Survey: 2006-2010 and FBI reports. Long story short, the expected percentage of reported rape is 35% (Still disgustingly low, but that's another rant) that graphic shows less than a third of that number. (10%) although it still cites the source that says 35%...
The truth is bad enough.  Exaggeration (or making numbers up out of thin air) doesn't help.

I like how the "assaults" continued for months.

This is a case of a 20 year old bong a 15 year old who's parents found out are are pissed. This woman may be pissed because it didn't give her daughter the career boost she hoped for. I'm just inferring from the strange comment about the daughter trying to make it in the entertainment business.

The kid would have known better than to go after jailbait. Under age sex is bad but calling that kind of thing rape just makes things harder for actual rape cases.

Britney Spear's Speculum: sno man: From their website: (bold is mine)
"Sarah Pierson Beaulieu is the founder of The Enliven Project. She has had nearly 35 years of experience as a human and over 15 years experience in managing complex relationships and partnerships, fundraising, and systematic approaches to change. She is a survivor and a truth teller, a poet, a semi-psychic, wife, mom, and a loyal friend."


None of which are a qualification to interpret statistical data.


Anyone calling themselves a psychic isn't qualified to do anything more important than flipping burgers.

B.L.Z. Bub: doglover: Having an age of consent is retarded.

Ahhh, the wisdom of Farkers. So no matter how young the girl (or boy) is, the law shouldn't be concerned? So tell me, doglover, how young do you go? Hmm? How many kids have you diddled, you sick fark?


Uh, if she's now 17 and he's now 20, and she claims she was raped when she was 15, then he was only 18 at the time.

I don't endorse 18 year-olds screwing 15 year-olds, but neither of them are "kids", you lazy moron.

doglover: Thus the only just way to examine such cases is individually. If it is determined that there has been victimization, let punishment be applied. If it was actual rape, hang 'em. If it was consensual, that's life. In the grey areas, case by case.


The problem with this is one of relative ages of mental competence. It's a little silly to say that people aren't mentally competent to, say, take out a car loan outside of stringent restrictions until they're 18, but they're totally responsible enough to have sex across a five-year age gap between a partner that's legally independent and one that isn't without any worries about exploitation when they're 15. It's dumb to try to prevent teenagers from having sex, and it's equally dumb to let adults take advantage of the inevitability of teenagers to be responsible for their own behavior, so we split the different and do the age of consent plus romeo and juliet caveats bit.

Also... do you not remember being fifteen? I wasn't mentally competent to handle the relationships with the people my own age I was sleeping with without all sorts of farked-up shiat going on, anyone over 20 that sought that shiat out would pretty definitely have been intentionally exploiting my impaired state of mind.

I would agree if we were talking about a 16 or 17 year old boy, but he was 20. He wasn't another high school student whose girlfriend was a grade or two below him; he was an adult, certainly old enough to know better. Even if the girl did consent, and she very well might have, that's still farking creepy any way you slice it.

He might not be a paedophile, but he's absolutely guilty of statutory rape in this case (assuming that he did it).

According to Herman, Hopper plied the teenager with alcohol and drugs before the assault.

Pabst and nitrous?
