Kate’s Law?

Now that Kate Hunt has decided to cop a plea and take a very light sentence for her statutory rape of a 14 year old girl, her mother says that she will focus on getting “Kate’s Law” passed by the Florida legislature “to protect teens.” She thinks that it will protect teens to make it legal for an 18 year old college freshman to be messing with a 14 year old 8th-grader.

Look, it’s not age disparity per se that’s the problem here. Mrs. Hoge was in the 6th-grade when I was a university freshman. The problem is the lack of maturity of the younger party. Mrs. Hoge was 23 when we met and was able to make more informed decisions than when she was 14 or 15 or 16. (She married me anyway.)

We owe our children, and a 14 year old is still a child, the opportunity to safely mature into adults. Keeping them from sexual predators should surely be a part of that protection.

UPDATE—Down twinkles on the proposition that we should protect children from sexual predators? Really? Is there a pedophile or his pedo pals reading this blog?

Hmmmmm.

    Amen, Mr. Hoge. Amen.

    Hubby was a high school senior when I was in the eighth grade. Having met after I turned 20yo allowed for our age difference + maturity levels to be inconsequential–unlike if we had met at the time the FREEKaters are condoning as a-okay for children to “consensually” participate in sexual activity.

    These anti-AOC zealots want our children. I pray there are enough of us to continue to stand united against their nefarious efforts to hyper-sexualize and molest our kids. God help us…. as they are not only maniacally committed, but they, too, have members within their ranks whom belong to a sooper-speshul, politically-protected class of citizens. And, as we have witnessed time-and-again, unfortunately, the powers-that-be tend to have a habit of caving to these special-interest groups all in the name of political-correctness, and shoring up their base. *heavy sigh*


  2. There *is* a pedophile (or two…) and their Pedo-pals reading every post and comment on this blog.

    Hey, Brett…hi, Craig! Hullo, Bill, proud of the company you keep?

    Trust me, they hold you in the same regard…
