WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. — A woman pleaded guilty to second-degree rape for providing a hotel room and liquor so her 13-year-old daughter and a 14-year-old friend could have sex with two men they just met.
The woman, whose name was withheld to protect her daughter's identity, allegedly told investigators it was time for her daughter to "have sex and get it over with." The age of consent in New York is 17.

Yeah, if the religious right have their way, it will be illegal for parents to talk to their kids about sex at all. Can you imagine being arrested for contributing to the delinquency of a minor or child abuse because you explained sex to your child or (oh, the horror of it!) got them on birth control?
How many teenage boys have been taken to brothels by their fathers, brothers and uncles to be instructed in the art of sex by an older, more experienced individual. I'm not saying what the mother in this particular case did was right, but I am saying that there is a serious double standard in effect here. I wonder what the daughter and her friend think about this now. Does the daughter think her mother "raped" her?

Uh-huh, yeah, well, evenb though I realise I'm going to be hated by all of you for this...
If the girl(s) was/were willing, than whats the big deal, I mean if they wanted to, than they should in my opinion, and if the mother was'nt forcing them too.
Well I don't see the big deal, or a problem.
Oh, and because I have a feeling someone is going to accuse me of being something or the other, I'm not even legally an adult, so yeah, I'm not some 45 year old guy, trying to get with a 15 year old, not that I think that is wrong either, as long as both are in consent.
