The problem is that it isn’t about teenagers having sex. It’s about adults exploiting minors sexually and being legally protected in doing so. What possible justification would there be for a 24-year-old to have sex with a 15-year-old of either sex? The rational answer, of course, is there is none. Rather than addressing this reasonable concern, however, left-wing and LGBT sites decided opposition was homophobic and hateful.
Just remember…these people teach our kids.
University of Texas at Austin professor Thomas Hubbard is pretty much a whack job. Have you ever heard about pederastic intimacy? Neither have we. You’re about to learn more than you probably ever wanted to know about this phenomenon.
Hubbard has written about pederasty, which was a “prominent social phenomenon in numerous ancient Greek cultures” where men and boys had “relationships.” In this case, sexual relationships.
Hubbard has written that “contemporary American legislation premised on children’s incapacity to ‘consent’ to sexual relations stems from outmoded gender constructions and ideological preoccupations of the late Victorian and Progressive Era.”
Let us translate that. He thinks that it should not be illegal for people to have intimate, i.e. sexual relationships with children. Let that sink in.
Hubbard is getting paid by taxpayers as a member of the University of Texas faculty to argue that predation laws should be reconsidered to lower the age of consent.
