Just because one girl is completely devoid of any morals or ethics, doesn't mean we all are. Some people are seriously way too eager to pass judgement and put all of humanity in the same basket.
Reality check. Most parents would be completely livid if their son or daughter behaved in this manner. It's about time people who broke the law were made an example of, but as long as we have New Labour for a government, that's never going to happen.

Before I cast judgement on her,I'd pass it on the "officials" who took her hard earned money from her like they had a right to do so: why not set up a fund for her and offer her some real life-options so she might be ready to use the money wisely when she becomes of "legal" age?
Naw...easier to steal from her and throw what's left of her to the wolves.

I think she found the easiest way to make quick money from a business ie prostitution which is as old as civilization and is rampant in every society

I don't understand why some folks think this is a recent development in human nature. Traci Lords was active in the Porn Industry at the age of 15.
She used fake IDs and nobody was the wiser. She was doing hardcore XXX stuff at this age.
I don't think she ever went to jail for it and this was quite some time ago.
However, the point is how sexualised and how would that sexuality be expressed? I think it's misleading to think that puberty is the real or perhaps only catalyst in this. Puberty is, in a sense 'neutral' in that it awakens or creates a sexuality, but it's the pressure of culture that shapes and determines how that eventually manifests. Arguably, you could say that, thanks to mass-media, those pressures are actually now in place and being felt before the natural/neutral pressure of puberty.

You could also state that the culture of religion manipulates human behavior. The insistence of maintaining ones virginity until marriage is unnatural, marriage itself is also unnatural. Does it mean that that behavior is wrong?

But the reality is, more marriages seem to end in divorce than not. I would say that it should be more common for people to be careful about making such a big choice.
My honest opinion on human sexuality is that we are VERY social animals.. Just like a group of gorillas, it would seem natural that any one person is compatible to any number of others.
Only until someone makes the conscious decision that they found a life partner that they can be with forever.. Marriage should be at the back of their minds.
As for the girl, I kinda agree with the person who said that she took advantage of sex and wealth, in a way that she could -- Both being heavily glorified to us all from a young age. And to be honest, with this horrible economy.. I have wondered if MORE people are making the decision to do this, as jobs become more scarce.
