  •  my sister had a friend (0+ / 0-)

    This friend was at the age of 14 was built like a 20 year old. She met a guy, whom was going to UNL, online and had him pick her up. She said nothing about her age. He was sent to prison. Probably still on a sex offender registry. Offender registries just need to go away. they don't make people safer. All they do is whip up rape hysteria and encourage violence and ostracism against people who have already done their time.

    The fact is that this girl likely knew what she was doing. I stole something when i was 13 and i got caught. I knew 100% what i was doing and the consequences. We always say to trust girls but some of these cases, and the law, clearly don't. When this happens to a boy everyone's high-fiving him for his accomplishment. We assume that the boy had the agency to make his own choice but when it comes to the girls we assume that she was a passive object that was acted on by the evil man.

      actual emotional maturity. I've never met a 14 year old who came across as an adult.

        he is not bothering to assess emotional maturity

        he is using his eyes, not his brain, to decide whether a girl is old enough

        Politics is like driving. To go backward put it in R. To go forward put it in D.
