  •  How about a stricter code re NOT RAPING! (19+ / 0-)

    Me, I don't like the current pressure--motivated by commercial interest for money--it's always about money-- on young girls to dress "hot." (I loathe that word.)

    But I don't care if a woman or girl is wandering around buck naked. If she doesn't give consent (and there's no such thing as "mass" consent and no such thing as consent on the part of an 11 year old) no one, no one! should lay a hand on her.

    So...let's talk to the boys and men for a change.
    Let's tell them about how they should comply with a "code of conduct"--don't rape little girls. Don't rape anyone!

    Or are we still in the "boys will be boys" mindset?
    (I loathe that phrase as well.)

    I'm tired of the "Eve tempted Adam" theme. Adam could have said "No." I'm tired of the "you can't expect men to control themselves" idea. Are they animals or thinking human beings?

    I'm really, really tired of the "if it's not a nun in a burka with two knife wounds, then it's not rape" claim. Women are not toilets. They are not put on earth to "serve men's needs." Human beings, people. Real live individual human beings. Who decide for themselves who to have sex with....or whether they want to have sex at all.

    Freedom has two enemies: Those who want to control everyone around them...and those who feel no need to control themselves.

      I actually addressed Steven D`s diary elsewhere in exactly the same manner.
      Thank you.

      That little girl could have no clothes & it would still not justify her rape.
      All of those who violated her person should be tried & hopefully receive the full penalty of the law, but we hear how what they did will affect them.
      One of my granddaughters is 11 years old.
      I know I couldn`t rest until they were all punished.
      Even my call for pacifism would be shunted aside.
      That lady is disgusting.

      Imagination is more important than knowledge.
