Never mind that this 18 year old adult targeted a 15 year old kid...
Whaaa, gays shouldn’t have to follow straight people’s rules!!!
They really lied in that headline, eh?
Of course the prohomo MSM would like you to believe the charges have anything to do with a same sex relationship.
This is really stupid.
A Eighteen year old don’t normally hang out with 15 year old. Having two teenagers I can tell you.
This is an interesting story. It’s been FReeped 5-6 times in the last day or so.
Lots of dialogue for and against. Even some zots have been handed out in prior threads on this subject.
In before the usual Freeper age of consent opposition lobby arrives.
Now, Now Now. The Sodomite in the article was simply early to the harvest of American youth. Wait until the age of consent is lowered. The age of consent media blitz will start at any time now.
Oop my bad. They are already here.
Statutory rape is the law.
Homosexuals want the rights of heterosexuals...but it appears they don't want the responsibilities.
I’m not a supporter of homosexual behavior, but I do have a problem with framing a 15 year old and 18 year old liaison in terms of statutory rape or some such.
It bothers me when they do this with 18 and 15 year old guys and girls, or girls and guys.
If the guy is 17 years 364 days old, it’s okay. If the guy is 17 years old and 365 days, it’s rape.
These are kids that go to the same school. They meet and socialize. I think it’s going too far to try to make the older person out to be a felon here.
It does disturb me that and 18 year old homosexual is introducing a 15 year old girl to that. Fifteen year old kids should be left to their heterosexual norms. If the 18 year old girl wanted to have these types of relations, she should have stuck to her own age group or above.
How stupid would it be if she preyed upon your 15 year old daughter or granddaughter? I have a beautiful 15 year old granddaughter and I can tell you I wouldn't be worrying about how stupid anyone thought it was that I took umbrage at some dyke messing with her. That kid and her parents would have real trouble on their hands.
How would it be handled if she was 16 or 17?
“These are kids that go to the same school. They meet and socialize. I think its going too far to try to make the older person out to be a felon here.”
It’s zero tolerance mentality, following the letter of the law rather than the spirit, coming home to roost.
Maybe in your amoral, valueless world this is 'stupid' but corrupting an innocent child with homosexual depravity is unacceptable in my world.
The article says it was consensual, but it doesn’t state which one started the affair. It just says they were dating. Maybe it was the 15yo’s fault?
Do you know who started it?
Yes, innocent young kids should be left to their heterosexual norms and predatory homosexual deviants that steal that innocence should be punished.
It says the younger girl’s parents called the authorities after the older girl turned 18. My question would be, did the sexual activity continue after the girl turned 18? It would make a big difference if the defense can prove everything happened when both girls were minors.
In Florida law (re: lewd and lascivious battery), consent is a ‘prohibited defense’...
I haven’t read anywhere who started the affair.
Society and the laws have made it difficult to illegal for a parent to control their children’s behavior.
Just as an aside, dating isn’t against the law. In this case the older girl is charged with having had sex with the younger girl.
“I havent read anywhere who started the affair.”
I don’t think it would matter in court. Older men who get caught in stuff like this are often the ones being pursued at the start.
I personally think that the parents of the 15 year old should have just pulled her out of the public school as soon as they learned of her relationship with the other girl and homeschooled her.
Notice that this is being addressed on an age related basis though. And that is not really addressing the problem here IMO. And I think you agree with that.
Yes and they were dating. It wasn’t just having sex I don’t believe, although that actually does happen when teenagers date.
Does the BSA really want to go down this road?
Yes, lot’s of time that happens. Some young girl wants to be with an older boy. Could have been the same kind of situation here.
800.04 Lewd or lascivious offenses committed upon or in the presence of persons less than 16 years of age.
(4) LEWD OR LASCIVIOUS BATTERY.A person who:
(a) Engages in sexual activity with a person 12 years of age or older but less than 16 years of age; or
It also goes to show that they have been making efforts to get the older woman away from their daughter.
funny how the headline shouts out her name, when in most cases it would say something like “Florida Woman charged...”
is she some kind of local celebrity?
otherwise i wonder why the headline would read like this
They probably went ballistic when they learned they were having sex. (I know I would have...though I don't know if I would have called the police).
The age of consent is 16 in most states.
As a basic rule...Anyone over 16 that boinks anyone under 16 will get charged with a crime.
States vary but 16 is key in most states.
As I pointed out in another thread yesterday, there are many laws that define whether or not something is legal by age. For example, if the girl in question attempted to vote one day before her 18th birthday, it would be illegal; one day after, legal. If she tried to buy alcohol one day before her 21st birthday, illegal; one day after, legal. If she signed a contract one day before her 18th birthday, it would not be binding upon her; one day after, it would. An so on and so forth.
So are you arguing that ALL age-based laws should be repealed? And if not, why should this age-based law be any different than any other?
I thought our progressive edumacashun system promotes this sort of thing. Free love baybay!
The facts of the story seem to change depending upon the source. According to several accounts I read yesterday, the parents did not find out about the sexual relationship until after the girl was already 18, and they notified the police immediately. And according to the reports, the sexual relationship did occur after the girl was over 18. Whether it also occurred before she was 18 is not clear.
I think people forget just how much difference there is between a 14 year old and an 18 year old in terms of expereinces and mental growth, personality growth, maturing.
You look at the kid leaving middle school, and look at the young adults leaving high school, and there is a world of difference.
As a matter of law, who started the affair is irrelevant. Just ask any number of guys who went to jail seduced by a girl who told them she was over 18...
“You look at the kid leaving middle school, and look at the young adults leaving high school, and there is a world of difference.”
Hard to imagine a century ago or so, girls were married by 16, isn’t.
I’m not sure the older girl is criminal, but the law is the law and she should be treated just like a hetero would be. If the law needs to be changed, change it but it is what it is and she is probably sh..-out-of-luck.
Rape is one of the most charged and almost self-convicting charges that can be leveled against someone. It is life changing, and can mean instant and prolonged incarceration.
That’s why I cringe at the idea that a few seconds can transform someone from innocent love status to one of a pariah, consummately evil and deserving of society’s long and lingering hatred.
What are the ramifications of vote or not vote? What are the ramifications of drink or don’t drink? Both of these are more or less wink-wink nod violations when it comes to the penalties.
So no I’m not saying all age related standards are wrong. What I am saying is that there is an awful lot riding on the rape parameters, and it does bother me someone could be judged so differently just a few days later.
Homosexuals want the rights of heterosexuals...but it appears they don’t want the responsibilities.
Liberals want the rights, but they don’t want the responsibilities....
Pretty much sums up liberalism..
The offender: First Name Initial + Last Name
Speaks for itself...
Hard to imagine most people didn’t live much past 50 more than 100 years ago.
You don’t allow children to enter into binding legal contracts. This is part of it. Mental age is another. Going through puberty and hormone fluctuations. Brain development that we now know doesn’t even really slow down in a major way until 25.
The fact that there may be an immature 25 year old that finds a mature 14 year old a match, doesn’t mean we scrap a law that works in virtually every case. If an exception ought to be considered, that is what a specific court case is for, that doesn’t necessarily apply to anyone else as it has specifics for that particular case.
Who started it is immaterial. The victim did not have the legal ability to consent.
I have had clients in this situation where the parents get mad and call the cops on what is, quite honestly, not the type of predatory behavior these laws are intended to prevent. A guy who is 18 dating a 16 year old girl for example. And then if he gets convicted he has to register as a sex offender which carries a whole load of disasters from housing to employment. Frankly, these types of situations do not warrant such drastic punishment and there should be room to take account of the difference between some 50 year old with a 16 year old vs. 2 teenagers.
