What I was saying was that my daughters are 9 and 6. And so if, at the age of 12 or 13, they made what I would consider to be a mistake, in having sex or unprotected sex, and ended up getting pregnant...

It would be an error, but not an evil, in his opinion if his 12 year old daughter had sex with some guy.
How does this NOT give tacit consent men having sex with 12 year olds? His refusal to judge condones the behavior - statutory rape in most states.
