In Grand Marais, pattern emerges of older men pursuing teen girls
Minnesota Public Radio ^ | 2/27/12 | Dan Krakar

"We started hearing about these 20-, 25-, 30-year-old men who were constantly at football games, around the teenage girls, and who somehow believed that it was a great thing to be sleeping with virgins," she said. "And I was aghast."

DO NOT mistake me. These guys are scum and should be in jail. But it shows how the liberal mind works. MPR is on a rampage about this. But on the other hand their attitude is kids are gonna have sex, what are you a prude - give em condoms and shut up.

Compare this story with the attitude behind this: http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2852009/posts

Probably wouldn’t be such a big deal if they were sleeping with teenage boys, though.

Judging form the number of stories we see in the news lately its not so much older men pursuing teens, but older men and women pursuing teens.

As long as they wear condoms, support planned parenthood, and vote DFL what’s the big deal.... /s

Neither Omoslem nor Larry Sinclair were underage during their backseat limo sex-and-crack parties.

Selective liberal outrage.

Reliably inconsistent.

And when the teenager gets pregnant, the older creep will coerce her into ‘choosing’ to abort.

Parents and authorities in Grand Marais say they tried to stop older men from having sex with all high school girls, whether they were younger or older than 16.

Well, DUH!!! And how well did that work out for ya?

But for a variety of reasons, they say such efforts failed, and the behavior persisted for decades.

Decades? Try centuries! Men chasing women has been around for a long, long time. Cultural mating norms shift regularly, and much older men used to chase much younger women with the full knowledge and approval of society.

There's little data to gauge whether the relationships between adult men and teenage girls that occur in Grand Marais are unusual,

Yeah, there's darned little data. And when you talk about "adult" men and "teenage girls," how "adult" is a 21-year old man and how much of a "girl" is a 19-year-old female, despite the fact that technically she's still a teenager? I for one don't see how there's anything at all unusual about this.

or how the pattern took root.

Uh, biology mabye?

It's also unclear whether a similar pattern is common in other Minnesota communities.

How about communities anywhere in the world? I would suggest that this is hardly an isolated paradigm, and that it's far more the norm than the exception.

Talk about a tempest in a teapot.

This article is ripe for a deconstruction from a factual perspective, not to discount the numerous instances of LibTard faulty premises being accepted as fact.

Hopefully, another FReeper will do it, as I have to finish a paper dealing with faulty management premises amongst the Armed & Rangerous at the Department of the Inferior.

If not, hopefully, I can amuse myself awhile hopefully disabusing LibTards of some of their delusions.

I listened to a bit of the radio show this morning. It was all couched in cultural terms. There is a pernicious culture in that town. The culture that enables this needs to be addressed.

I wanted to call in and ask them, aren't you the people who have been lecturing us for 40 years about the evils of judging other peoples’ cultures? Their culture isn't worse than ours, just different. You want to force these people into accepting our culture? What are you a cultural colonialist?

she said. "And I was aghast."

If it's in NPR, I'm going to guess that what they're really upset about is that the teenage girls were having sex with older men. If they were being seduced by older women, they would be fine with it.

I don’t care if its men or women, boys or girls.

It’s still wrong.

This story is just bizarro. But if sex is for married people and that is what is taught, maybe this stuff wouldn’t happen. How come such weird stuff happens in small towns?

Here I am hijacking my own thread but that reminded me of a story my wife told this weekend.

When she was a girl she lived in St Paul. She was selling candy for the gymnastics team. She went to a big house on Summit Avenue and rang the doorbell. Muriel Humphrey came to the door.

Wife: Would you like to buy some candy for the gymnastics team?

Muriel: “No we are all on diets here” [slam]

Of course it is still wrong, but liberals always seem to excuse man on boy love (with the exception of the perverted Mark Foley, who was a RINO).

Also, according to Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the age of consent should be 12, so I can’t imagine that she’ll have a problem with this.

Wow. I lived on Summit Avenue in a mansion all cut up into apartments right across from St Catherine’s, even the garage was an apartment. Mrs. Wright was the owner and she lived upstairs. She gave all her renters Christmas gifts........she gave my folks a tape recorder for Christmas, can you imagine?

NYC schools starts mandated sex-ed at 11, this includes studying different kinds of condoms and mapping routes to abortion clinics. I hear the workbook is considered legally obscene. I also hear Kalipornia starts in pre-k.
