perhaps you should read the article. he wasnt talking about one case. he was talking about the law and his view of it.
perhaps you, like him, believe that the law ought to be changed to protect perverted adults who wish to have sex with children rather than protect
children from sickos like that.
the law is there for a reason - the protection of children and in the uk you are legally a child until 16 (though you cant vote or buy alcohol till
18). just because a child may look older doesn't mean they should be given the rights of an adult. there is a huge difference between physical
looks and mental age.
do you think the dj (or most other men) would have cared if you were 14 or 16? in your 'experience' how many do you honestly think would have
turned you down if they knew your true age?
who protects you from them (and them from you)? you are right that this area needs to be addressed but only from the point of view of protecting the
child. an adult can choose to say no if they are in doubt about the childs age.
by the way, what were your parents doing allowing you out at 14 to go to drinking in nightclubs?
And only ONE girl ever lied about her age? Statatory rape laws should be reveiwed and looked into, whether UK or US. I have a friend whose brother is
in jail, and will be labled a predator his life, because he was 17 having sex with a 15 year old, WITH her mother's knowledge.. She even let them
have sex in her home, and knew what was happening.
He turned 18, and she called the police.
Legal, yes, right, no.
Don't put words into my mouth, I said NOTHING of the sort. Do NOT equate me with being on the side of pedophiles. Read what I said, the laws should
be re examined. Demonizing me in a personal attack, because I presented a veiw point you didn't agree with is not conducive to a meaningful
And I was no child in my mind. I was 14 going on 44. Yes, I could have a decent conversation about pretty much any topic, except sports, lol. Ever
hear the term, old soul? That was me. I did not look, act, or carry myself like a 14 year old.
Would the DJ have had sex with me? Probably, but then a stury showed that 90% of men said they wuld have sex with an underage child if they thought
they could get away with it. BUT someone in the publics eye is going to be twice as careful as to who they stick what in. What do you mean turned me
down, I never approached anyone, and was just counting coup, like I said. It was never about sex, and I was actually a virgin for several more years
BUT, would it have been fair IF I DID have sex with an older man, and then went to the police? The law doesn't say, Oh, well, she told you she was
21, so, we are going to let you off the hook. That is the point, I was trying to make, and I think that these things should be addressed in law, and
they are not.
I protected me from them, and I protected them from me. Could things have gotten ugly? Yes, but so could things for a woman of age, going into night
clubs, and drinking, ect.. I think the law needs to be addressed with BOTH veiws in mind. Have you seen some of the 13-15 year olds lately?
And because I was an A student, and was not a problem child, I could tell my parents, I was going over to blank's and because I had earned the trust
over the years, I was believed.
Again, don't make this into a personal attack on me or my family, the snide comment is not appreciated. This is a side that I think should be seen,
and addressed, because currently, there is no law in place to protect adults from children. Yes protect adults from predatory children.
Check out your sociopathy, younger females prefer older males. Children are physically developing faster than ever, and there are some 15 year olds
that hunt the big prey, the guy with a job, his own place... That is not going to be the 16-18 year old boy, it is going to be someone 20 or older in
