Assholes like this including the women who make up rape, like the biatch from the Duke thing, should face the same sentence that the person they've accused would have faced.

Son of Thunder:

Save your "technically legal means perfectly fine" nonsense for the lawyers.

Save your moral outrage nonsense for the church. Either this guy was an adult and therefore capable of making his own choices, or he wasn't.

Which is it? You can't have it both ways, the age of majority is a bright line in this country. Personally I wouldn't be interested in someone that age, but if they're grownups I don't care who they're farking.

It's none of my goddamn business. Nor is it yours. I don't want people prying into my private life and that pretty much means I don't pry into theirs.

One of the posters in the comments asks: What kind of gay man has a tattoo of a pin-up girl?

I'm not saying it is the kind that "attracts powerful men" and eventually gets cast away, at which point he stabs them and robs them, or claims they committed statutory rape in a feeble attempt at black-mail (no pun intended here, folks, move along), but I suspect that it is the kind that eventually robs rich or richer gay sugar daddies, stabs them, or attempts extortion. I've read of a number of sad cases with much unhappier endings than this one.

Clash did the wise and right thing. One, he came out long before this happened, two, he immediately stepped away from his job, and three he made a public announcement. When the victims of black-mailers do this they destroy their value to the extortionist because extortion is a crime and they set themselves up to defend themselves in a court of law and the public eye.

Smart dude. Had his Twinkie and ate it too.

The guy looks none too bright but predatory and narcissitic.

A lot of male prostitutes are deep in denial. If they are straight they are farked up, if they are bisexual or gay, they are farked up in a different way. They are often farked up either way and many of them, while they enjoy sex with men, do not consider themselves gay--they are in it for the money or for the yucks. A lot of them are narcissitic, some are sociopathic and capable of slicing and dicing you just for laughs.

If you are closeted, you don't survive a relationship with them. But if, like Crash, you have come out, you have a first line of defence in that you are harder to black-mail or bully. There will be people who know your story and who can back you up.

Of course, all of this applies to men who who have affairs or mistresses or other relationships which are likely to be deemed inappropriate by employers, family, etc. The best defence in all cases is a good offense--go public. It could save your life regardless of why the partner was dumped or has turned vicious.

Publicity. You can't fight threats of exposure unless you can bear exposure.

That said, Clash must have some Mad Muppet Money to get a Snotty Hottie like that. Either that or he's a closet furry and the trick is into wild Elmo sex.

Then again, inside every sociopath, there's a would-be actor. Sociopaths are born actors. That's how they survive even when people discover that they are dealing with a likely sociopath. We don't have to make any assumptions about Crash. It doesn't take a lot of fame or money. Sociopaths and tricks are just as attracted to D-listers with middle class money. You don't have to be Quintin Crisp or Fran Leibowitz to figure that out. Just look around your young urban professional circle of acquaintance and friends and count your tricks.

Tricks can be found clinging to school teachers for the love of Jebus! School teachers!

Son of Thunder: Cyclometh: So, do we go back to the original thread and ask everyone who called Clash a pervert, pedophile and deviant to recant and apologize?

I know the difference between a pedophile and an ephebophile, so that part doesn't apply, but I did call him a pervert and a deviant. You get no apology. He was nailing a kid who could have been in the same high school as his daughter. In addition to "pervert" and "deviant", I'll add "creep", "sleeze", and "skeevey". "Technically legal" does not equal "good idea".

The guy was an adult. Your personal feelings on appropriate age differences mean two things: jack and shiat.

Adult. End of discussion.

This is an object lesson in why we are assumed innocent until proven guilty in court. It's something that should extend outside that also, but the media needs their blood.

46 and 18 is still pretty creepy. Legal, yes. But then, lots of creepy shiat is legal.

Cythraul: [img.gawkerassets.com image 400x452]

Is that him? Although not my type, I can see why Elmo definitely wanted some of that.

Yeah, that dude is Greek god beautiful. I can't stop looking at him, and I'm straight.

When I saw the picture and read the article the first thing I did was forward it to my buddy. He has a thing for racially ambiguous, vaguely dangerous young men; a thing that used to get him in trouble from time to time back when he was single.

He'll probably be sitting outside the guy's apartment with a bouquet and a pair of handcuffs.

And Kevin Clash will have to deal with this bullshiat for the rest of his life. This guy should go to (and would probably enjoy) prison.
