Skip to comments.Allow legal sex at 13 to stop 'old men abuse persecutions', says barrister
Posted on 05/09/2013 3:11:33 AM PDT by markomalley
In a controversial intervention, Barbara Hewson, a barrister at Hardwicke chambers in London, also called for the end of anonymity for complainants.
The lawyer, who specialises in reproductive rights also claimed crimes committed by disgraced broadcaster Stuart Hall were ''low level misdemeanours''.
Campaigners today criticised the ''outdated and simply ill-informed'' views, which it said ''beggars belief'' from a highly-experienced barrister.
Her article also provoked an internal row within her chambers, which launched an "investigation" into the claims.
Her comments come as Scotland Yard runs Operation Yewtree, an investigation split into three inquiries into allegations involving deceased presenter Jimmy Savile, involving Savile and others and those involving just others.

Sadly an argument that will be coming across the Atlantic in not many years.
This is satire, right. If not the world has completely gone to hell. The homos and pedophiles will hail her as a hero and try to push the same message over here. Truly evil. No attempt to hide its true nature at all.
The next step.
That was from a protest in Oakland California last year.
It is not coming...It is there now.
Marxist oriented Sluts, freaks, homos, and other assorted
pieces of human debris have taken over western civilization.
One only needs to observe the current POTUS.
“’As for law reform, now regrettably necessary, my recommendations are remove complainant anonymity, introduce a strict statute of limitations for criminal prosecutions and civil actions and reduce the age of consent to 13.’’
Ms Hewson argued that ‘’touching a 17-year-old’s breast, kissing a 13-year-old, or putting one’s hand up a 16-year-old’s skirt’’ are not comparable to cases such as the Ealing Vicarage rape or Fordingbridge gang rape and murders from 1986.
She added: ‘’Anyone suggesting otherwise has lost touch with reality.’’
Obviously the barrister is a sexual deviant herself that wants to legalize pedophilia and I’m willing to bet she has many frends in NAMBLA. Dear Lord, we need you now. This world no longer knows the truth. Black has become white and the principalities of evil are upon us as demonic activity has increased tenfold in the last 5 years.
no effing way that “barrister” is a perv
no effing way.
the barriser is a perv
Ok then, I guess I have lost touch with reality.
Up to the later 19th century, the age of consent in Britain and in most American states was 10.
Up to the mid 19th century in some American states it was legal for one man to own another as property.
Ruth Bader Ginsburg once wrote a paper supporting lowering the age of consent for sex between adults and minors to something like 13 years old.
Rectitude is not reflected in legislation nearly as often as some would like to think.
No, not "instead" of prosecuting sexual abusers, but in addition, we should be teaching them to avoid predators and arming them, if necessary, with the appropriate weapons. A 13-year-old is kind of adult-sized and can learn to use a gun. Annie Oakley, after all, was hardly bigger than my tiny 6th-grader.
... and prosecute modern crime.
You should be able to prosecute both "gropers and seducers" AND forcible rapists, rather than declaring an either/or. It would help if you could acknowledge that the gang-rapists are predominantly "Asian," i.e., Moslem.
Eats, shoots, and leaves ...
Not only do they want to lower the age of consent to 13, but they wish to revoke anonymity from children making claims against adults.
Why don’t they just throw all the children into the coal mines during the day and the brothel at night?
Let’s eat Grandma.
well you have a point, sexual cannibalism will lead to cannibalism, I can’t stand pervs
And now the government owns those of us who work for anywhere from 4 to 6 months of the year.
that is twisted
That is to say, a sick society produces both the male predators who are currently being arrested and prosecuted in England, and this woman who defends them based on the general amorality of their culture.
This is a movement which has very deep roots, sadly, with chapters throughout the United States and the world really:
Which way forward for sexual liberation?
Are you f'ing kidding me?
I'm 35. If all of a sudden I became a dirty "old" man and made some moves on your 13, 16, or 17 year old daughter, you'd probably shoot my ass. And you should. While the things described isn't the same as sticking something where it didn't belong, it eventually leads there.
And Progressives call this “progress”.
To them it is. Depends on your goal. If your goal is a nation of serfs in thrall to a government that plunders the fruits of their labors and then spends the pelf as the whims of bureaucrats dictate, then we're on the right path.
Didn’t Theodore Roosevelt raise the legal age of consent from 9 to 12?
Why do the states not enforce anti-prostitution laws against adult porn makers?
Probably hoping to find a lad horny enough to put her through the paces.
The most unexpected people are all into sex with kids, or at least kids’ having sex. It’s like there are zombies among us, but the decay doesn’t immediately show on the outside ... only when they open their mouths (or write an “academic” paper).
There is a derangement afoot in the land.
Or maybe it is simply evil.
I just wasted 15 minutes on an e-mail exchange with an editor of the St. Paul (Minn.) Pioneer Press over a story they printed yesterday, involving a mother and daughter who were set upon and beaten, in the street, by a gang of “teens”.
I chided the editor for plainly covering up the fact that the “teens” were black, and he responded by saying that the police had told the paper that “there were no detailed descriptions”.
Both the Minneapolis-area papers cover the news this way, and of course it is preposterous, and pointless, and demeaning to readers AND to those who are unfairly included (people of every race, by the way, including innocent blacks) in their stupid color-blind descriptions.
Let’s all of us agree that if it were gangs of white skin-heads who were perpetrating these crimes, and a bigoted white sheriff were screening their identities, then the papers would extend every effort to find out who was behind this viciousness, and who was covering up and why—as well they should!
But we are now in the land of derangement, and of favored groups, of suppression of facts and of outright lying.
We are in the land of Orwell, only with the rules of distortion and deceit being carried out in a clumsy, slovenly, roughshod manner—not with the chilling precision of Big Brother, but rather as if by a shabby, drooling Beast.
Feels like evil to me.
I think you’ve got it right - evil, and not even trying to be anything but obvious.
Freepmail wagglebee to subscribe or unsubscribe from the moral absolutes ping list.
And the march into the flaming abyss speeds up. The leftists are primarily driven by perverted and rapacious lustful sex desire. Take that waya and they'd be namby pambies to a large degree. That takes away a great deal of theier fuel.
Anyone wanting on/off either ping list, freepmail me.
They are not sexually grooming the children in public schools, via planned parenthood, for nothing. Homo activists want to leglize “consentual” sex with boys.
The UN is big on adult sex with children. The Muzzies want it to be global law. Hitlerly pushed the treaty when B. J. was in office. They frame it as the “right” of the child to have sex with whomever they want.
This is where we are going to see a lot street justice from mom and dad, brother and aunt and uncle. I see dead people.
