I can’t believe I have to say this.
Statutory rape IS rape.
Statutory rape is STILL statutory rape even if the victim identifies as male.
Statutory rape is STILL statutory rape even if it matches your “hot for older women” fantasies.
It’s still rape.
It’s still rape.
IT’S STILL FUCKING RAPE, YOU JUVENILE PRICKS.
No, really, hordes of men who flood any mention of the linked story, or any time a female teacher is caught boning one of her male students to argue that it’s not rape, that it needs another name, that boy deserves a medal because hubba-hubba, it’s still rape.
First of all, no one invited your boner in this conversation. No one gives a shit if you wished your teacher would have banged you in the back of her car. Gross. Stop it. Put it away.
Second of all, you’re a double standard having piece of shit. If the victim were a girl, most of you throwback would be chomping at the bit to arrest the dude (you know, if you also weren’t fantasizing about boning a girl). You’re more than willing to deny teenage girls their sexuality/fantasies while just assuming “all boys are horny all the time and it’s doing them a favor to fuck them”. This isn’t a fucking porno flick. Eww. Stop it. Put it away.
There’s a reason why we have these laws in place – to punish older fucks who can’t keep their hands to themselves. Because they’re supposed to. Because we assume with age comes some sort of maturity and self-control. And when that doesn’t happen, we punish those who aren’t capable of that maturity and self-control. No matter their gender.
This isn’t me denying teens their sexuality. I may be ace, but I’m far from ignorant about being a teenager. But we can’t suss out how to legally (or even as a society) handle teens and other teens getting together when one’s close to the age of majority and the complications therein when we can’t even get a plain as day violation of a rape law through some folks’ skulls. This is basic shit, and it’s basic shit we have to deal with every time this comes up. Because some fucks can’t see past their boners.
Gross. Stop it. Put it away.
