StrongAxe: Statutory rape laws prevent relations with girls who THINK they want it, but aren't mature enough decide. Parents make decisions for children for a good reason. Do YOU think 11 year old girls should be ALLOWED to decide to have sex?//

That's RICH coming from a Democrat. A 11 yr old shouldn't be allowed to decide to have an abortion either but Democrats don't believe that they should WITHOUT parents consent.

The RICH part is that instead of trying to find the Rapist they insult the girl by telling her to kill her baby.

What part of Trump's words 'they LET me' do you don't understand?

Al Franken was touching the women's breasts while she was sleeping.

One with permission, the other without permission.

Nicole_Lacey:

When did I ever say it was OK for Democrat men to assault women? Yet again, you put words in my mouth I never said, not based on what *I* would actually say, but on the distorted image of me you construct in my head, of someone who thinks Democrats can do no wrong and Republicans can do no right. I don't think that way.

When Democrat politicians are accused of sexual misconduct (e.g. Al Franken), they properly resign, but when Republicans are, many either deny it happened, or say that they did nothing wrong (like Trump actually boasting of grabbing women by the feline parts, because "when you're a celebrity, they let you do anything", totally ignoring inconvenient things like marriage vows, etc.).

Cluny:

Kavanaugh was less than a year ago. We still have far to go.


Nicole_Lacey:

My "Forcing a girl ISN'T the same as a girl willing to participate" is NOT "13 yr olds are not willing to participate in relations". It's "Not ALL 13 year olds are willing". MOST are not.

Statutory rape laws prevent relations with girls who THINK they want it, but aren't mature enough decide. Parents make decisions for children for a good reason. Do YOU think 11 year old girls should be ALLOWED to decide to have sex?

Food stamps are federal, so federal welfare fraud, a federal crime.

StrongAxe: Kavanaugh's hearing was this year, and she was not believed.

Because she was lying. Even her own best friend said her accounts didn't happened to the FBI.

BTW, Why don't you believe women accusing Democrats?

Not Karen Monahan when she said Keith Ellison beat her.

Not Meredith Watson or Vanessa Tyson accusing Virginia Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax of sexual assault.

You all only care about the women when they accuse Republicans.

You all don't even care if your own Democrats women are assaulted by Democrat men.

Bill Clinton, Harvey Weinstein, Charlie Rose, Matt Lauer, Al Franken, John Conyers, Bobby Scott, Ruben Kihuen and etc.

It's a joke when you all claim to care for women

\\More and more, but not enough. Kavanaugh's hearing was this year, and she was not believed.\\

StrongAxe: I never said that. Why do you keep making things up?//

Why do you keep forgetting the stuff you say?

Me: Forcing a girl ISN'T the same as a girl willing to participate.

You: what makes you think she was willing?---StrongAxe 6/8/19

That's the whole purpose for 'statutory rape'. Girls who want relations, but by law cannot give consent.

If both are 13 yrs old and participate it isn't rape.

A girl who isn't willing or participates in relations has another name by State.

It's called molestation/rape no matter the age of the boy or man.

//If she REFUSED to give it, it would have been welfare fraud, a FEDERAL CRIME.//

State not Federal. All she had to say is that she was raped.
---Nicole_Lacey on 6/10/19


Nicole_Lacey:

I never said that. Why do you keep making things up?

What I have said (and what the law says) is that children are not mature enough to understand many issues, and understand their own rights, and are easily influenced and intimidated, so even though they may be WILLING, they are not capable of giving LEGAL INFORMED CONSENT.

And when the state demanded more information, she would have had to give it. If she REFUSED to give it, it would have been welfare fraud, a FEDERAL CRIME. Do you honestly think she SHOULD have committed a federal crime to protect her rapist?!?!


Cluny:

More and more, but not enough. Kavanaugh's hearing was this year, and she was not believed.

StrongAxe: Most rapes are never reported because women are trumatized by rape.//

I am not denying that. You are claiming that 13 yr olds are not willing to participate in relations.

That's why the Government distinguish rapes.

Statutory rape isn't the same as a violent rape. Why are you denying that reality?

//Rape trials can be very traumatizing,//

Of course. That's why I wouldn't name the Rapist. She could have said she was raped and the State would have demanded anymore information.

//most victims don't want to be traumatized a second time.//

Exactly!

So why did she name the man?

All she had to say is that she was rape.
---Nicole_Lacey on 6/9/19


\\It's even worse with child victims, as children are frequently not believed. This is especially true with abuse by clergy.\\

Except the last decade or two, when the child is believed first.

Glory to Jesus Christ!
---Cluny on 6/9/19




Nicole_Lacey:

Most rapes are never reported because women are trumatized by rape. Rape trials can be very traumatizing, with defense attorneys assassinating the victim' character, and most victims don't want to be traumatized a second time. Also, it's typically "she said vs. he said", so it's often difficult to get a conviction. It's even worse with child victims, as children are frequently not believed. This is especially true with abuse by clergy.

Just because some cultists manage to marry willing victims doesn't prove ALL such relationships are consensual. The law says youngsters are too impressionable and immature to be capable of informed consent.
---StrongAxe on 6/9/19


StrongAxe: Because she was required to do so BY LAW. When she applied, they required her to name the child's father.//

She yelled out 'rape' after the fact And when she yelled out rape the Judge quickly rescinded his order.

//what makes you think she was willing? She was RAPED. In a "he said, she said" case,//

It wasn't a she said or he said case. It never with to court and he wasn't charged for her rape.

Watch 'Tom Green polygamist mugshot video. He went to prison not because he married a 14 yr girl (lawful in Utah) BUT because she gave birth to their son 5 month after her 14th birthday. Making her 13 when they had relations. (he was 40) Statutory rape.

She is crying claiming he didn't rape her!
---Nicole_Lacey on 6/8/19


Nicole_Lacey:

You wrote: The Rapist DIDN'T REQUEST custody or visitation.

Which makes it even WORSE, because he was granted joint custody without even requesting it.

She put his name the welfare form.

Because she was required to do so BY LAW. When she applied, they required her to name the child's father.

Forcing a girl ISN'T the same as a girl willing to participate.

And what makes you think she was willing? She was RAPED. In a "he said, she said" case, it's often difficult to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that there wasn't consent, but fortunately, because of statutory rape laws, young victims don't have to do that.
---StrongAxe on 6/8/19


StrongAxe, I cited even NBC reporting the ACTUAL FACTS of the case. Again, opinions of a case isn't facts of the case

The Rapist DIDN'T REQUEST custody or visitation.

The Rapist was in jail for raping other women

The 12 yr girl didn't even accuse the man of raping her when he was 18 and she was 12 which made it STATUTORY RAPE by one year.

She put his name the welfare form.

REALLY?

WHAT'S UP WITH THAT?

//If the girl is 12, it's not "alleged rape". It's ALWAYS statutory rape.//

Yes, by law. But you and I know there is a still difference!

Forcing a girl ISN'T the same as a girl willing to participate.

And a 18 yr old school boy ISN'T the same as a 30 yr old grown man.

Nicole_Lacey:

Search: rapist awarded custody.

Kiessling v. Mirasolo: (same case you and I referenced):
New York Post: Oct 9 2017: Convicted rapist gets joint custody of victim's child
CBS News: Oct 17 2017: Judge rescinds order granting rapist joint legal custody of victim's child

It was a routine ruling because the local Prosecutors DIDN'T give all the FACTS.

The mother and child's life were jeopardized by government action. Does it really matter WHO in the government messed up? If the girl is 12, it's not "alleged rape". It's ALWAYS statutory rape.

Also, Wendi Lubin and Analyn Megison:
The Establishment: The Unique Hell Of Fighting Your Rapist For Custody
---StrongAxe on 6/2/19


StrongAxe, a Law doesn't have to post every single condition of WHO CAN'T have visiting rights.

BTW, it does make a deferrants to criminals records. People addicted to drug, alcohol or felonies (raping someone are felonies) CANNOT have custody or visitation rights.

Again to you and Kathr. CITE a case where a Rapist has visitation rights?

The Judge is a he not a she. It was a routine ruling because the local Prosecutors DIDN'T give all the FACTS. So routine that the father DIDN'T EVEN ASK for visitations rights

BTW, the Rapist went to jail for another lady's rape

It was alleged rape BECAUSE the girl was 12 years old.

You put 'Rapists' between normal jobs?

Merely to emphasize that the custody laws make NO MENTION of employment, race, income, criminal record, political affiliation, IQ, shoe size, or any number of other unrelated factors.

BTW, the Judge didn't change his mind because of the uproar. He changed his mind AFTER he learned about the DETAILS. A difference

And how did she learn about the details AFTER she made her ruling, rather than before? Because obviously some people were NOT HAPPY with her ruling. She should have done her homework beforehand.
---StrongAxe on 5/31/19


Strongaxe: There are no specific laws for rapists,//

THANK YOU!

IF a child is conceived through sexual assault, the rules vary widely on the parental rights of the attacker.
(CNN)It's an ALMOST UNIMAGINABLE SCENARIO (meaning it NEVER happened.): a victim of rape being forced to face her attacker over custody rights for a child conceived during an assault. "ALMOST" is the key word, because it's a situation that can easily happen in states across the United States..."parental rights for rapists," a phrase that's mind-boggling..

Read: "The Unique Hell Of Fighting Your Rapist For Custody" by Layla Haidrani, Mar. 6, 2018

Read: "Where rapists can gain parental rights" CNN, Nov. 17 2016
There are 7 states where women can legally be forced to share custody with their rapist: AL+MS (of course), MD, MN, ND, NM, WY. Similar rights were only blocked in 2016 in AZ, CT, GA, IA, IN, ME, MI.

In 2008, a 27 year old man in Sandusky raped a 12 year old girl. She got pregnant. 9 years later, she applied for government assistance, and had to name her boy's father to be eligible. After DNA tests confirmed this, the judge gave her full custody and him joint custody. Only after an outcry did the judge rescind the father's custody.

Nicole/ Cluny, These women are already at emotional and psychological risk because of the initial trauma. Now you have laws that the rapist father has visitation rights until the child is 18, forcing the woman to be victimized a million times over, OR dumped on the state. A 10 year old girl forced to have her father's baby.....tell me, what statistics do you all claim to have concerning the long term effects in this area. Again, may see many dumped on the state.

Women put their lives at risk of dying going to back door butchers, and many died KNOWING THE RISK. But it appears Federal Judges are holding states AT THIS TIME, as breaking the law....if or until the law is given back to the states and no longer the Federal Government.

The Alabama law claims to be about life, but it isn't really. The pro-life position is that life begins at conception. In vitro fertilization clinics fertilize eggs, and keep the fertilized embroys in storage for future implantation. These embryos in jars are just as much conceived and alive as ones in a woman's womb. Curiously, however, the Alabama law does not prevent destruction of such embryos. The only explanation that makes sense for this dichotomy is that the law is not about preserving life at all, but solely about controlling women's reproduction, since it doesn't care about life if a woman is not involved.

Also, Alabama's claim to be pro-life is hypocritical, since the execute more people per capita than any other state.

---kathr4453 on 5/19/19


kathr4453:

The reason our Founding Fathers put freedom of religion in the constitution is because that was a new concept - none of the countries of Europe had it. As a result, there was constant persecution of religious groups who didn't run governments by those who did - e.g. Catholics under Henry VIII and Elizabeth I, Protestants under Mary, and Puritans under the Church of England that they considered so bad that they left to found American colonies - and that's only England. Also, The Inquisition, Calvinist purges, etc.

Our Founding Fathers did NOT want to repeat that bloodshed here. Would YOU want your government to tell you when and where and how and whom you can or must worship? I don't.

Jesus taught the Golden Rule: "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you". If you want the government to allow YOUR religion to be tax exempt, you must also want it to allow EVERYBODY ELSE'S relgion to be tax exempt too, regardless of what you feel about their religion. If you don't, you violate the Golden Rule.

Much that the Satanic Temple does publicly (e.g. posting statues in public places) is specifically done to show up the hypocrisy of Christians who think it's perfectly acceptable to put religious statues and Ten Commandment murals in public places, and push prayer and religious education in schools, but utter outrage when anybody from any other religion does exactly the same thing.
