That's 17, though. You're already legal in a lot of states and almost every other country in the world, and much older adults sleeping with you is sleazy, not criminal.

But to answer your question, you don't form sexual relationships with minors when you are in a position of trust, even if they might be above the age of consent. At 17 it's borderline so it's not a "horrible crime" even though it is still wrong, and 17 isn't the age where kids are likely to be fucked up by it. I'm talking like 12-15 year olds getting banged by their teacher that you read news articles about, and those are the ages where you see guys saying "WHEre Was ShE WhEn I waS thAt aGE".

It's an especially bad form of statutory rape because you are in a position of trust of someone who is already too young to meaningfully consent, and often they will end up fucked up over it even in cases where they might have "consented" at the time, which to be clear, often isn't the case anyways.

No, you are conflating two different domains. The analogy for a sub is not the public square, it's a church, club, etc. You aren't being censored because you went into a sub and started posting stuff that doesn't follow their rules and then got thrown out for it. It isn't your right to go into a pro-gay sub and start posting anti-gay shit anymore than it's an atheist's right to walk into a church and start passing out atheist literature.

You know, I used to think that boys were just lucky too, but I really don't think that's the case anymore. Getting molested generally creates trauma for the kids regardless of sex. That some of them might end up fine with it even in adulthood doesn't excuse all the kids that are traumatized by it. I think there are more boys than girls that end up fine, but there are still enough that it's good to have laws punishing teachers harshly for doing it.

Rinse and repeat.

Jurors Refuse to Convict Homicide Defendant to Avoid Sending a “Young Black Man” to Life in Prison - Look at the Perp's Empty Eyes - How many more will he kill now? Stupid Fucking Liberals by cottoneyejoe in news

This is called jury nullification, and if any of you paid attention in history class, you'll know this is far from the first time that a jury has declined to convict because they felt the punishment for a guilty verdict was too harsh. Actually, that history goes back to at least the 1600s.

Despite what the title of this "Big League Politics" article is trying to imply, they didn't decline to convict because of his race. They declined to convict because they extenuating circumstances surrounding the case would have suggested a lighter punishment than the law allows for. Hence the jury nullification.

Eh, at that time Candace Owens was claiming the projections that the government was basing their initial lockdowns on (something like 100k-240k deaths by August, which turned out to be entirely accurate) were made up to scare people.

"Experts" certainly get it wrong sometimes, but not as often or as brazenly as Candace fucking Owens.

Mob Rule Denied: Kyle Rittenhouse Acquitted! ⋆ 🔔 The Liberty Daily by cottoneyejoe in news

broke several laws

He did no such thing. The "illegal gun across state lines" thing was straight up fake news (gun was always stored in Wisconsin), the curfew violation charge was thrown out because it was found to be unconstitutional, the underage weapon possession charge was thrown out because possession of a rifle or shotgun (unless it's a short-barrel) is actually legal in wisconsin for 16-17 year olds, and the other 5 charges were all homicide, attempted homicide, and a reckless endangerment charge because the first guy he shot had someone else ~30 feet behind him in the line of fire.

All of the remaining charges that actually made it to the jury deliberation phase of the trial have self-defense as an affirmative defense, which is why the jury came back as not guilty on all counts. Everything that happened that night is on video, and Kyle never provoked anyone. Hell, the guy that jumped him initially did so in part because Kyle had put out a fire he started earlier, and jumped him when he was trying to put out a different fire.

This is kind of an aside because he couldn't have known this at the time he shot them, but I think it's rather telling that all 3 of the people that attacked him that night had notable criminal records. One was a convicted child rapist that had sexually abused 5 boys between the ages of 9 and 11, another had multiple domestic violence convictions for hitting his grandma, and the third had burglary and DUI convictions, and unlike Kyle was illegally carrying that night, because you need a permit to carry concealed, his permit had been either revoked or had expired (still not clear on this), but he was carrying a pistol concealed anyways.

I don't think what happened that night was a good thing, but I think it's inaccurate to say he "got away with it". You may not like the laws, but everything he did was legal.

You're joking, right?

Rosenbaum had been acting very aggressively towards the people on Kyle's patrol, and told Kyle that if he "caught him alone that night he was gonna fucking kill him". He caught Kyle by himself later that night, and tried to jump him. Kyle managed to get away and Rosenbaum started chasing him. Kyle tried turning around and pointing his gun at him but this didn't deter Rosenbaum, who kept chasing him, and when he was right behind him and lunged for his gun was when Kyle finally shot him.

The forensic pathologist that examined Rosenbaum's body found injuries to Rosenbaum's left hand not only from a bullet, but from the soot ejected from the end of the barrel. He said this only happens if the skin is less than a foot from the end of the barrel, and usually when it's within a few inches. And notably, only the section of his hand from the middle/ring fingers to thumb had these injuries. The pinky area didn't, indicating that part of his hand was behind the end of the barrel. So if his hand wasn't on the barrel, it was really damn close, proving he was trying to grab it.

With regards to the other homicides, Kyle was running towards police after the first shooting to turn himself in (you're supposed to do this even if acting in self-defense), and had members of the crowd throw stuff at him and cause him to trip. It was at this point that an unnamed man ran up and kicked him in the head. Kyle fired at this guy twice, and this was the only guy he missed.

Then right after that Anthony Huber ran up, hit Kyle in the head (or his neck?) with his skateboard, and grabbed his gun to try to take it away. Kyle shot this guy once, dropping him almost instantly.

Then finally Grosskreutz approached Kyle with a pistol in his hand. Kyle pointed his rifle at him and Grosskreutz did this fake surrender maneuver where he held his hands up, but as soon as Kyle dropped his gun Grosskreutz pointed his pistol at him. He was too slow though, leading to his bicep getting vaporized and the creation of this hilarious meme.

  • When someone has threatened to kill you, tries to jump you, is chasing you, isn't deterred by you merely pointing your gun, and is now trying to take your gun, you are justified in using deadly force to defend yourself.

  • When someone runs up and kicks you in the face while you are on the ground, you are justified in using deadly force to defend yourself.

  • When someone runs up and hits you in the head with a skateboard while you are on the ground, you are justified in using deadly force defending yourself.

  • And when someone runs up with a pistol in their hand and points it at you, you are justified in using deadly force to defend yourself.

People have argued that Kyle really shouldn't have been there that night (possibly true), that he crossed state lines with a gun to be there (not true, the weapon was always in Wisconsin, and he lives 15 minutes away), and that he was looking for trouble (not true based on all the witness testimony that night stating that he had been friendly and non-confrontational whenever any less serious confrontation came up).

None of that has any substantial truth to it, but even if it did, it's irrelevant to his self-defense case. The fact is that every time Kyle fired his gun, it was in response to the threat of death or serious bodily harm, and he was justified in using deadly force to neutralize that threat. No one is going to convict someone of "recklessly endangering safety" for shooting someone in self-defense when that person had another person behind them. With the curfew charge having been dropped because it was declared unconstitutional by a judge in another case, the only possible crime he could actually be convicted of here is the underage weapons possession charge, and I'm not even sure if he was actually in violation of that based on this section which specifically exempts minors over 16 in possession of a rifle or shotgun. The judge apparently wasn't sure either, and he said he would have to read the statute more closely and would give the jury specific instructions about it when it came time to determine his guilt.

Bottom line is that he's not obviously guilty of any of those things, and for most of them it's quite the opposite.

It's worth noting that not only that, but just a few minutes prior had tried to question Rittenhouse about not telling his story to the media before he got on the stand, and the judge also had to dismiss the jury so he could admonish the prosecutor about that. So this was the 2nd time in like 10 minutes that the judge needed to dismiss the jury to talk about the prosecutor's misconduct, so this time he was really gonna get it.

If you don't understand why asking about his silence on the case is a big no-no, the 5th Amendment states you cannot be compelled in a criminal case to be a witness against yourself. Courts have long held that this protection also means that prosecution cannot use someone's silence as evidence, or use it to imply guilt, or question the defendant about their silence should they choose to testify. This isn't some obscure or new rule, so it's something the prosecutor definitely knew he was violating.

That 60% stat is nonsense. Even for the single dose J&J vaccine it's around 72%, and notably it's 86% against the severe infections we're really concerned about. The other 2-dose vaccines have efficacies in the 90-95% range.

You're arguing that everyone should be forced to take an experimental vaccine whose efficacy is largely suspect so that everyone will feel better.

That you personally don't know how to do quality research an issue has no bearing on how the smart people make decisions. We already have a case study in what happens when you get the majority of the population vaccinated. Israel was getting shots in arms even faster than the US was, and now the majority of their population is fully vaccinated.

And what was the result? Why don't you look at their case numbers and death rates and tell me. Looking forward to your next impotent ego defense rant so I can keep dunking on you.

150 million Americans have had at least one shot. There would be hundreds of thousands of videos just like this if the vaccine were the cause. Yet all you have is this a handful of weird videos. I wonder why that would be?

We have saved so many children's lives thanks to vaccines that even if it were true, it would still be a retarded argument.

Seatbelts save hundreds of thousands of lives every year, but there's probably some small handful of freak accidents where someone ends up dying because they were wearing a seat belt. This vaccine argument is like pointing at those deaths and saying that if you cared about people's lives you wouldn't force them to wear seatbelts.

I do remember Dave Chappelle mentioning in his recent special (which was widely trashed by critics and denounced as "problematic", but that had excellent audience reviews) that when the Smollett thing happened the Black community wasn't saying anything, to the point where the gay community started denouncing them as being homophobic for not coming out in support, and the reason they weren't saying anything is because they knew the story didn't add up.

Maybe he's twisting history to make the bit work, I don't really know. But I do know it's a pretty funny bit either way.

I looked into this, and found that she was referring to this document. While it does contain alarming language that could be interpreted as supporting a reduction of the age of consent, this is a lobbying coalition, and nothing is being "pushed through the UN".

Would anything the PIE or NAMBLA puts out be interpreted as a threat to statutory rape laws? I think the answer to that is pretty clearly no. Call me when you've got a legislature actually discussing it on the floor.

It's about the character tropes present in anime that they wish they embodied, and for the record it's definitely not limited to guys, either. I knew girls that read manga when they were in middle/high school, and I don't think it's a coincidence that we're also seeing a lot more AAPs (autoandrophiles) following the rise of hentai (porn manga), specifically yaoi (hentai featuring male couples with the intended audience being primarily female).

She was on a suspended sentence for the same thing, so that's why she went to jail now.

I wish the UK had similar free speech protections to the ones we enjoy in the USA, but either way it's because she was a repeat offender on a suspended sentence, not because it was holocaust denial specifically, that she went to jail for so long.

The slippery slope fallacy isn't really even a fallacy for exactly that reason. Sometimes the slope really is slippery.

One of the main reasons TRAs have gotten as far as they have, is that people that haven't looked into it still assume that this is a continuation of the gay rights movement and that, like the gay rights movement, this is fundamentally about equality. In some cases, like not being fired for being trans, it is. But obviously in a lot of other cases, like sports, it isn't.

A gynecologist would have to pretend he doesn't notice? I don't think that's right. Refusing treatment because it's outside of your area of expertise is the responsible thing to do, however "validating" it may or may not be. It certainly isn't discrimination at any rate.

Lupron hurts kids just like testosterone and estrogen do. And the evidence that for most kids it was doing so for nothing has been there all along. Surprise surprise, the same drug that we were using to chemically castrate sex offenders, and that was also already shown to cause muscoskeletal issues when given to kids to block precocious puberty, is also turning out to cause the same problems when it's given to kids to block regular puberty.

The only reason western society is going through this phase right now is because wealthy/influential autogynephilic men, with the support of the alphabet lobby that needs a new justification for their existence since Obergefell, are now pushing the "trans children" narrative to obfuscate the fetishistic roots of their motivation to "transition".

Bruce Jenner famously got caught by one of his teen daughters trying on her clothes before he was "out". When she told the family about it, he told the family he was a liar. Now he's out telling people that there is no meaningful difference between male and female athletes, and also pushing the trans child narrative.

The "trans child" narrative has always been a farce. And now, it is being exposed as such.

It wouldn't be Saidit without a racist take, now would it?

Some urban cities have been seeing a huge rise in carjackings performed by teens. Apparently the local gangs have started recruiting them for specifically this because even if they're caught, they're usually let off easy because of their age.

And in this case, it wasn't "murder", but felony murder, which is where someone dies (whether intentionally or unintentionally) while you were in the process of committing a felony. One of the girls tazed him, which caused his body to convulse and floor the gas, which led to a crash where he died. Carjacking by itself is reprehensible, but the teens weren't trying to kill him.

I was curious what UrbanDictionary said, and none of them really define it accurately, which is unsurprising when you consider how the site has been going woke for the past few years. Notice how none of the definitions assume the premise that some "trans women" are really just deluded, damaged, or entitled men. You can't really define "troon" without acknowledging that, which is a problem, because on UrbanDictionary you are no longer allowed to acknowledge that.

Learning about autogynephilia was such a lightbulb moment because it explained so much of the behavior of the guys that I've known that transitioned. And it also explains yours. Wanting desperately to be a lesbian when you are in fact just a straight man. Taking medication to induce lactation so you can "experience motherhood", and so on.

Frankly, it's all really creepy and gross. I feel bad for the actual lesbians that have been having to deal with guys like you for the past few years.

My guess is that if you arrested the reddit staff that advocated for "Aimee" and examined their hard drives, it wouldn't just be "Aimee" that would be going to prison.

So you think he's just a glutton for punishment with a penchant for polite troll-esque discussions, like a mere hobby.

I'd hardly call it punishment. Maybe you come away with the same beliefs as you did before, but that doesn't make the other person feel beaten. In most of the conversations I've had on here where there has been disagreement, I certainly didn't feel like I was being beaten down by some superior mind. Just because the other guy didn't agree that CO2 is a potent greenhouse gas, doesn't mean I feel beaten. You just realize after hanging out on here a while that people cling to their beliefs, and it doesn't matter how good of a case you make. I can cite all the science I want, ChristianMusic is still gonna say the earth is 10,000 years old.

Unproductive debates should best be avoided, but when on saidit they're usually mixed in with more interesting conversations, so it's worth staying.
