Journal Marxist Hacker 42's Journal: The Sexual Revolution Jumps the Shark 18

Three stories caught my eye this week, and a fourth hidden story was found because of the other three.

Apparently, homosexuals with the help of religious zealots have gained a new level of equality this week, with Lesbians in Florida now able to be charged with statutory rape under a rather odd rape law that that calls statutory rape "lewd or lascivious battery on child". I think that means seduction is now rape. And speaking of seduction being rape, while discussing this case, I had cause to look up The age of consent in Massachusetts, where I leanred that there too, seduction = statutory rape, but ONLY if the person under the age of 18 is "chaste". Elsewhere in Massachusetts law, apparently, is a stricter version which is about sexual penetration and only applies to girls younger than 16. So if you are a slut, you can't cry rape in Massachusetts.
This all jives in with the story from Elizabeth Smart on how overzealous Christian sex ed led her into a polygamous marriage with her kidnapper. I think the same people who wrote that Mormon sex ed curriculum wrote the Massachusetts law on age of consent.
And finally, just to bring it back around to homosexuality the Department of Justice now requires employees to have some pro-gay paraphanilia in their workspace- J. Edgar Hoover and his closet full of dresses would be so proud!

    This entire thing is particularly disturbing... Just not for the reasons the author thinks...
    • Are you able to read my mind and know what I think?

      By story above, here is what I truly think:
      1. Charging an 18 year old girl with statutory rape of her 15 year old girlfriend is a great thing- it's a new step in gay equality. Having said that, the idea that seduction=rape is ridiculous.
      2. Likewise with the Massachusetts law that ties consent to previous behavior. We need less discrimination, not more, to make headway.
      3. I prefer my abstinence education to be chastity education instead- what Elizabeth

  • DOJ Pride is not the DOJ

    • Yet
    • Well, not yet anyway. But do enough of this, and the day is coming when we'll see heterosexuals being as illegal as mexicans.

      • You both got way too much FOX on the brain. I watch them and CNN occasionally. Tragic what they pass for 'news' these days. More tragic to see people take it seriously and actually believe that trash. This hysteria you all are under is truly tremendous. I'm seeing movies rated PG-13 for 'intense perilous sequences'. You people are really headed over the cliff... blaming the weather and terrorism on teh gheys!

        • This wasn't even fox. But I've seen enough enough [] violence [] to know [] when a civil war [] is being [] started [].

          Are you saying you can't see what is right in front of your face (and notice, not a single one of those news sources was FOX!).

          The one that was most ironic, was the group of gays who attacked Holy Redeemer in San Francisco over Prop 8- that church runs an AIDS hospice.

          • I use FOX as the generic term for all Hysterical American Media, kinda like Kleenex for facial tissue... doesn't really matter. You're watching either paid actors or crazy people. The real treat of civil war is coming from people who fear the loss of their privileged status.

            • And they wouldn't be a threat if their privileged status wasn't endangered. Privilege exists for a REASON. Isn't it better to try to figure that reason out before destroying for the fun of it?

            • Also, nice to know you consider Huffington Post and local news stations such as KGW to be as unreliable as Fox. Never claim to be a liberal again to me, you're just another Conspiracy Theorist.

              • I never once claimed to be a 'liberal', that would be those other guys... And that's Ariana's Huffington Post, right? And furthermore, privilege can only be justified in a might makes right world. Are you telling me I should 'know my place' and not make waves?

                • You should consider who your waves will hurt. It is not possible to take action without doing harm.

                  • So now we should apologize for living... Can't do that without 'harming' something.

                    • I confess to almighty God
                      and to you, my brothers and sisters,
                      that I have greatly sinned,
                      in my thoughts and in my words,
                      in what I have done and in what I have failed to do,
                      through my fault, through my fault,
                      through my most grievous fault;
                      therefore I ask blessed Mary ever-Virgin,
                      all the Angels and Saints,
                      and you, my brothers and sisters,
                      to pray for me to the Lord our God.

                    • Or if you prefer the Latin:
                      Confiteor Deo omnipotenti,
                      et vobis fratres,
                      quia peccavi nimis
                      cogitatione, verbo,
                      opere et omissione:
                      mea culpa, mea culpa,
                      mea maxima culpa.
                      Ideo precor beatam Mariam semper Virginem,
                      omnes Angelos et Sanctos,
                      et vos, fratres,
                      orare pro me ad Dominum Deum nostrum.

        Ya know, there's less outlandish (and way more fun) conspiracies to glom onto. No reason to wander the wastelands when there's better hunting elsewhere.

        But I understand, apostasy is hard, especially at the beginning. You'll find your way.

With all the fancy scientists in the world, why can't they just once build a nuclear balm?
