Yes. If you’ve ever seen a thread where a 15 year old boy has raped a 9 year old girl, you’ll suddenly see an about-face in terms of Freeper’s perception of his adulthood. Suddenly, 15 is old enough for hanging.
15 is old enough for hanging. Always has been. See, the older, presumably more mature person bears the majority of the responsibility. It even works in made up scenarios.
Here’s the real question though.
Would we see an about-face in terms of your defense of child rape if it was a 15 year old girl and a 9 year old boy?
Judging from the responses of the Nak mutual admiration society, I’d have to say yes.
Oh yes. And you know what?
Actually, I would agree to the point short of hanging. But that would be consistent with my asserting that 15 year old is old enough to be responsible for his behavior, now wouldn’t it?
