    A 25 year old man raped a 12 year old girl – it was not consensual sex. If the media doesn’t use the correct terminology, attitudes toward child rape will not change.

    Yeah of course when men do it its a serious crime but when women do it you are being sexist for pointing out that they too are raping children. Its called “parenting” if you cannot teach your own child about sex someone else will gladly do it for you, this girl wanted to have sex with this guy and now he is victimized by the nanny State for no reason. The age of sexual maturity is when you start having sex, if a 12 year old wants to have sex they should be allowed to do it with whoever they want.

      You obviously don’t have children. But if and when you do, maybe you’ll be the proud grandparent of a child conceived by your 12 year old daughter and some one like this guy in the article. Sex is for the purpose of procreation and marital recreation, not experimentation.

    Dave, If you think having sex with a 12 year old girl is ok then maybe you need to be locked up.

  • smart

    Dave, If you think having sex with a 12 year old girl when your a 25yr old man maybe is ok maybe you need to be locked up.

    Im not going to say Its ok at all,kids shouldnt have sex for many reasons
    ‘I will say when I was 12,I was willing to have sex,I know others who were too
    All I needed to know is dont have kids and dont get a disease

    There are plenty of things this guy did wrong and should be punished for,but I think we should distinguish between the underage kids who are forced and the ones who do it willingly

    I knew of a guy who was sent to prison for “raping” 2 guys I knew when we were all 16-17,but those guys were gay as hell,and ended up with ugly wives.

    Leandro Garcia is a PEDOPHILE and a RAPIST. Is it possible that “Dave” may have some of these tendencies as well. Get some help sicko.
