Child molestation – it’s the modern thing to do

Share on Tumblr

We get our fair share of troll comments. They usually call us names and accuse us of taking positions we’re firmly against. Most of them are just drones of low intelligence on autopilot.

But once in a while, we get one like this, and it makes me pause and go “whoa” before hitting the “spam” button:

You seem incredibly biased against liberal and modern thinking, and the way things are moving to these days. Kids are becoming mature far earlier than they used to, AND there are plenty of grown-up girl scouts.

It’s on the ‘Fergilicious’ Means ‘Girl Scouts Are Hot’ post, in which Scarlett noted:

The clip left me with the feeling that she was perpetuating the myth that young girls are sexual beings and should be pursued and seduced.

It’s ironic that this comment, left by someone who used the name “Anonymous”, came last night during the time when someone was posting incorrect math and other unsound arguments in an attempt to defend the honor of fictional character, Indiana Jones, from the implications of this story session with Lucas, Spielberg and Kasdan. That commenter became more and more aggressive in the comments I didn’t allow through, calling me a “feminazi” (how original!) and accusing me of all sorts of biases against “modern thinking” and whatnot. I think it was the same commenter, and if so, I find it very interesting how easily he switched, when I thwarted his sense of entitlement to say whatever he likes on a website I own and pay to run, from defending a fictional person (and to a lesser degree, that character’s creators) against accusations of child molestation to informing anyone who drops by the Fergalicious post that Girl Scouts are fair game, and if you want to fuck one and she’s up for it, that’s the modern thing to do.

Thoughts?

    I had an ex boyfriend who said something like that once. He went on to date a former student of his (he was an HS teacher). That left me feeling so ICK that I haven’t bothered keeping in touch w. him.

    Modern? I thought that deciding that a girl was of age at 12 or 13 was the sort of thing done when one had to cement a feudal alliance or when one needed a couple of goats more than a daughter.

    This is just the same sick thinking of millennium past wrapped up with a shiny new excuse.

    Just because a girl of 12 might have breasts and wear a tank top, does not mean it’s actually grown up. And if you think s_he’s “so mature for his_her age” – consider the last part of that statement: for his or her age.

    Man, this post squicks me out, and reminds me of the Lucas post, which squicked me out, too.

    What in the WHAT? I feel the need for a shower at that last line.

    ‘Grown-up girl scouts’ seems somewhat oxymoronic to me. Assuming the cut-off is pretty standard around the world, in Australia you leave Brownies before you turn twelve and Girl guides by 17. Neither of which seems all that grown-up to me (but then, I’m 27. When I was twelve, 17 seemed awfully grown-up). Yeah, plenty of pre-pubesent and teenage girls dress and look older, but that doesn’t actually MAKE them older.

      In the US, we have “adult girl scouts” a class that includes leaders, assistant leaders, women who didn’t want to leave when they aged out and work as volunteers under the girl scout banner, and other miscellaneous women like me who maintain our connection to the program officially for whatever reason. However, we’re not the ones being fetishized, and there probably isn’t an adult girl scout who thinks we are, so *shrug*

    I once argued on the Internet with someone who felt that the taboo against raping children in society was just a bit of unthinking, traditional morality that didn’t necessarily reflect on reality. So I had to present an argument that didn’t rely on any conventional wisdom. What I came up with was:

    “The defining difference between adults and children is that they need us. A child has to rely on adults to feed and clothe it, to protect it, to tell it what to do and teach it how to do things. We, as adults, have power over children, no matter how little we deserve it or how much we wish that we had not.

    “We are their superiors; we are not their equals. This makes it impossible for them to consent to sex with us. Your very presence in a child’s universe deforms it, and affects its ability to make a choice freely and of its own will.

    “So without being equal you can’t have consent. And without consent you can’t have sex; you can only commit rape. Now shut up and try finding a girl your own age.”

    Hope that helps.
