Someone on Reddit is claiming that they, a 27 year old man, mistook a 12 year old girl for a 17 year old and had sex with her (age of consent in his state is 16). She was in a state facility designed for those with behavioral issues, and he met her at his gym.

In the comments, he states “I figured she was anywhere from 14 to 18. If I had been forced to guess, I would have said 16.” (handy that he says he would put her age at exactly the age of consent) He says he’ll kill himself if he gets convicted. He’s blaming her adviser for saying nothing when they exchanged numbers.

I had to scroll almost to the bottom before I found anyone calling him out for being a skeeve. The rest of the posts are all wishing him well, saying the girl deserves a beating, saying they’ll pray for him, or sharing stories of their own “underage girl who cried rape”.

A few questions:
1. How in the hell does someone think a 12 year old is 17?
2. Why in the hell is a fully grown man chasing after teenagers, especially when they know the teenager is undergoing treatment for behavioral problems?
3. Why is everyone supporting him?

I can pretty much answer my own questions, unfortunately.
1. He didn’t actually think she was 17, but that sounds a hell of a lot better than “I wanted to bang a 12 year old”.
2. He knows teenagers are easier targets for sexual predators, especially if they’re struggling with getting their shit together.
3. His supporters want to be able to get away with the same thing because they’re creepy fuckers.

I genuinely think this is why so many (mostly straight white) men fight so vehemently against the exposure of rape culture and reformation of laws related to sex crimes. The smaller that “grey area” gets, the harder it is for them to get away with rape.

THIS IS SUPER COOL THOUGH IF YOU UNDERSTAND HORSES. LIKE THAT NIPPING IS A GROOMING BEHAVIOR HORSE’S DO TO BOND AND TO MAINTAIN AND IMPROVE SOCIAL BONDS. SO THAT HORSE IS BASICALLY TREATING THE CAT AS PART OF THE HERD AND SUSTAINING THE FRIENDLY BOND.

IT IS SAYING, “this tiny horse is very tiny but we are friends. Look at my tiny friend.”

Sherriff Jody Mills and the Sherriff Donna Hanscum (from The Purge) meet because they both noticed a weird report in Sleepy Eye, MN. (It’s somewhere in between their respective constituencies.)

Jody liked to think she was developing a sense for the supernatural and the report in the Odd News page sounded less like the kind of story starring mange-ridden raccoons masquerading as chupacabras and more like something the Winchesters would look for. Which is why she was standing here, wearing a suit that hadn’t seen daylight since she interviewed at the Sioux Falls PD, eyeing the smiling woman in blues with hair piled into a messy bun warily.

“Agent Turner, this is my cousin Sherif Donna Hanscum from Stillwater,” the young Deputy Sheriff said. “She saw the story in the news and thought it was whackadoo stuff. She wanted to come on over and find out more.” He shuffled his feet a little nervously. “We’re a small jurisdiction, so calling in a more experienced officer seemed OK.” He cleared his throat. “I didn’t realize the FBI would take an interest.”

“That’s no problem. I’m here investigating a possibly related case, not step on anyone’s toes.” Jody smiled to reassure the anxious deputy and turned her attention to the sheriff.

“Nice to meetcha!” Sheriff Hanscum offered her hand, smiling at Jody. The handshake was firm and the smile, warm. She waited until the deputy excused himself. “No offense, Agent, but I thought the FBI would have a better clothing allowance. The two agents I met earlier this year,” she shook her head with an appreciative smile, “well, let’s just say they had suits almost as pretty as they were.”

Jody smoothed her hand down the front of her suit, unable to help the raised eyebrow. The sheriff raiser her hands in a placating gesture. Jody suppressed a smile at that.

Sheriff Hanscum cocked her head to the side, giving Jody a considering look. “Just curious, do you happen to know Agents Frehley and Criss?”

shit, kids don’t understand long division and you shove that down their throat but taking five seconds to explain how some people like the same sex is way harder than dividing by a two fuckin digit number.

Rubeus Remus Potter. You were named after the only two people at Hogwarts who seemed to give shit about me, because come on who else would I name you after? A verbally abusive dickbag who was in love with my mum and gave me shit all my life and someone who convinced a bunch of children that they needed to be soldiers? What kind of awful aspirations would that make you end up having? Come on son I’m not an idiot…

"If you’re not getting help, you must not be suffering." The problem is, getting help takes a kind of motivation that depression takes away from you. Or depression convinces you that you don’t need or deserve help. Or you lack the energy to do it because of depression. Whatever the reason, having depression is in itself a huge impediment towards getting help, and I believe this needs to be expressed.

when white gentiles succeed in America, no one bats an eye.

but when POC succeed, it’s because of affirmative action.

and when Jews succeed, there’s some vast Jewish conspiracy controlling the banks/media/nation/world.

Inside China’s Insane Witch Hunt For Slash Fiction Writers

Important.

I take for granted my ability to be a fangirl and a lesbian in the open, my freedom of speech. To be vocal about my joys, my erotic attachments. Meanwhile our fellow fans are being persecuted for what many of us experience as simple guilty pleasures. This is a vital issue and it deserves our collective attention.

A little more important than raging about some white girl trying to be kawaii.
