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Campaigners today criticised the ''outdated and simply ill-informed'' views, which it said ''beggars belief'' from a highly-experienced barrister.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.
