  •  But the relationship started when Kate was 17 (1+ / 0-)

    That's why this thing absolutely reeks--the parents didn't bother to talk to Kate's parents, but waited until after Kate turned 18 and went to the police.

      this happens all the time to straight people.  Parents don't like a boyfriend then all the sudden he is a registered sex offender.

      Who ya gonna shoot wit dat homie, you'd rather blast an original instead of a phony, true macaroni, you don't even know me, and why does your gun say n****z only?

      it wouldn't have mattered, as the AOC is 16 with no "Romeo and Juliet" provision.

      If either of my daughters had been 15 in a relationship with an almost-18-year-old, I would have been very, very concerned. I don't know if I would have filed charges, but I would have thought about it. Because anyone that doesn't realize the VAST difference between 15 and 18 hasn't spent a lot of time around teenagers. I would have been extremely uneasy. (Their own age? I wouldn't have cared.)

      BTW, one of my daughters is gay. One is straight. And it wouldn't have made any difference.

      First, tell me how your brilliant idea will pass the House. Second, tell me how Obama can get anything past the House. Then we can talk.

    •  It's not clear (looking for a link) that the (0+ / 0-)

      parents waited until 18 or didn't know about it until after 18.  It could even be possible that when she turned 18 in Aug of 2012 the younger girl was 14.  Not a lot of info on the time line.  We also don't know the anti-gay spin the older person's parents are puttig on this.  Nothing I could find (looking for a link) that shows this is anti-gay acts by the parents.

      Never argue with an idiot. They will drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.
