So do you think a 7 year old boy is capable of getting an erection and putting it in a younger girl? I ask because there is a family situation where an adult woman is accusing her then 6 and 7 year old brother of raping her for a couple of years and then quitting. My feeling is that if a 7 year old was capable of this behaviour he would continue forever, not quit after a couple of years.
“My feeling is that if a 7 year old was capable of this behaviour he would continue forever, not quit after a couple of years.”
He quit raping HER after a couple years. Then moved on to his next victim. Most likely someone younger than she.
Yes, it is absolutely physically possible for a 7-year-old male to get and maintain an erection. The rest of the process does not exactly “work” as if it were a mature male. Shocking, I know, but it’s very, very true.
As for the abuse continuing for a few years and then stopping. That is not unheard of either. MOST people in abusive situations may do things that sound very abnormal to those of us in normal situations, but they are only mimicking or acting out abuse - behaving normally given that they are in an abnormal environment to begin with.
However, some of those children do grow up and when they reach the age of accountability and realize what they are doing, and learn that the behavior is inappropriate they can stop the behavior. They will likely carry guilt, but they can stop and never abuse again — if they aren’t too far gone already.
Gosh, I really wish I didn’t know so much about this...
That does not even matter in my opinion. A preteen cannot naturally have any concept of adult sexual urges. Any actual flaws in an individual's personality will continue even after reaching majority age.
I worry much more about the stigma on young children of being branded as criminals for actions of which they can have no actual understanding. Discretely private counseling may have saved these children's futures but exposing this publicly will condemn them to institutionalized ruin.
I actually did find this in the Oklahoma News paper also.
to be honest...i have no clue
i have kids...3 boys...i think a 7 year old lad will only have what one might call a need to urinate ..er..firmness...whew
anyhow...i think it would be difficult
molestation and feeling up that sort of thing would be more likely than rape
i doubt any boy under mid puberty can technically rape
when i was a boy in the 60s...i knew of an 11 year old who had sex...
girls...i don’t know...i knew some who were having intercourse at 13...that is about the earliest i ever could verify
but some of those girls once they got started and liked it or enjoyed the attraction power it gave them...howver warped...cut quite a path..like...they shoulda locked em up in a convent maybe
i feel for their parents looking back
i was a late bloomer till an older married woman forced herself on me...despite my protestations..lol..bless her heart../s
it’s a strange world..i look back and wince sometimes
but today we mommy the stew out of kids...those who do actually parent yet our culture hypersexulaizes them
it’s a paradox
I have 3 sons. My oldest will be 36 this year.
I will never forget how surprised I was when I realized infants have erections. There is no sexual aspect to it at that age, but little boys learn it is a particularly “sensitive” part of their bodies.
I’m no expert by any stretch of the imagination, but a 7 yr old & 11 yr old doing these things suggests either poor parenting or the possibility they had been victimized
