Persecution or Statutory Rape?
If you’ve opened a news page somewhere in the free world this week, you’ve probably read the headlines: Teen Girl Arrested for Same Sex Relatonship; Florida Teen Arrested, Expelled for Same Sex Relationship to name but a few. Catchy phrases like Free Kate - Stop the Hate have begun popping up. MCJ points us to this article which pretty much sums it up:
Talk like that is catnip to the libertine left, always eager to take a stand against sexual prudery and oppression – especially if evil religious types are involved.
What these headlines (and most of the reporting) lack is the fact that this is not about relationship. It’s about statutory rape.
Contrary to what some articles would have you believe, this relationship did not begin when one girl was 15 and the other 17. Some have suggested it would never have been a problem if the relationship had been heterosexual in nature. Not true say the minor’s parents.
Another adult, a mother, came to me and said ‘Ms. Smith you need to know this…we told Miss Hunt to leave your daughter alone. But they are in a relationship, and she’s 18.’ 18? My daughter is only 14.
After being told to stay away from their daughter, Kate purportedly picked up the 14-year-old. Because the relationship apparently didn’t stop, despite the aforementioned warnings, the Smiths said they had no choice but to turn to the law.
Not surprisingly the mother of the 18 year old has a different outlook.
Of course, I see it 100 percent differently. I don’t see or label these girls as gay. They are teenagers in high school experimenting with their sexuality – with mutual consent.
This Mom evidently has no problems with a 14 year old engaging in any kind of sex in the school bathroom with an 18 year old.
