She was kicked off the basketball team because of the potential for “drama” her presence created. She’s been vilified by fellow students, called “criminal,” “rapist” and “child abuser.” She was expelled from school. And far worse. She’s facing a lifetime label of “sex-offender,” because the other girl’s parents brought criminal charges against her despite the fact that the relationship was consensual. What’s more, according to Hunt’s parents, Hunt was 17 when the relationship began, but the other girl’s parents waited until after she turned 18 to go to police.
Unbelievably, prosecutors have decided to press the criminal charge.
So the prosecutor’s office in Sebastian River, Florida thinks this is a worthwhile use of taxpayer money and the court’s time.
Fuck everything about this.
These kinds of laws need to account for things they don’t on paper. The two girls in this case were brought together socially by the school. So they are of the same peer group. Kids harmonies don’t care about birthdays when they are this close in age. Kids in their teens vary in maturity and physicality. You can’t judge all young people the same. You can’t and shouldn’t. The law needs to give more lead way for case by case basis.
We are talking about kids here. 18 isn’t fully an adult since in Florida the legal drinking age is 21. So 18-20 don’t have full legal rights as adults. I’m all for investigation for sexual pressure and coercion at any and all age groups. I mean I can even see how a younger boy can be physically and mentally more powerfully than a shy quiet woman and vice versa.
So as I said the law needs to give more lead way for case by case basis when we are talking about crimes committed by kids. Especially when when we are talking consensual sex between teens and even more so to ones in the same classes, sports and clubs at school.
In my opinion.
Putting on masks to hide your sexual orientation at church…
I don’t think we appreciate just how beautiful it is to be gay.
We’ve not resigned ourselves to the stereotypical heterosexual paradigm of relationships so we’re well able to experience what it is to be both the lover and the beloved in ways that straight people…
