At least I’m not the only one still living in the real world as opposed to the fantasy world of CSA victimologists, the mass-media and its “experts” and pundits and “talking-heads,” MRAs, and the tens of millions of people they’ve brainwashed in full or essentially. Or terrorized and browbeat into silence or affected concurrence? John Derbyshire states the facts and notes the obvious and tells the truth as to how biological men ages 13-17 react to and experience acts of coitus and fellatio with adult women and especially those as ravishing and voluptuous as Debra Lafave:
Miscreant of the month: Debra Lafave, the 25-year-0ld Florida schoolteacher who was charged with sexual molestation for having got intimate with a 14-year-old student. Now, Miss Lafave did a wrong thing, no doubt, and should be…booted out of the teaching profession for good. Still, there was something distinctly odd about the news coverage of the story. What was odd was, the constant implication -I don’t recall anyone having the nerve to say it out loud, but it was there in all the coverage, just under the surface -that this was just like a 25-year-old male teacher doing the same thing to a 14-year-old female student.
Well, I’m sorry, but it isn’t. Not only is the Lafave case not just like that, it isn’t anything like that. Ms. Lafave is a very pretty young woman. I was a 14-year-old boy myself once. It was a while ago, but I can still remember what it felt like. I would have been thrilled to be seduced by Ms. Lafave, and I would have been the envy of my peers. I would go so far to say that it is the sweetest dream of every red-blooded 14-year-old boy to be seduced by an attractive older woman.
That doesn’t make Ms. Lafave’s actions right, of course, and I am not apologizing for her. It does, though, at least in my mind, cast deep suspicion on claims by (among others) the boy’s parents that he was “traumatized” by the experience. Believe me, gentle reader, there are 14-year-old boys all over America yearning to be so “traumatized.”
That we use the same words -“assault,” “molestation,” even “rape”- for the advances made by a 25-year-old on a 14-year-old male, as we would use for similar advances by a 25-year-old male on a 14-year-0ld female, just shows what a mess we have got ourselves into on the sexual-equality front. Men are not women, and women are not men. That is, of course, a politically-incorrect statement. Gaze on it while you can: soon it will be illegal to utter it. (John Derbyshire, NRO Diary, March 2006.)
One should note that in most of these cases the woman isn’t even guilty of seduction. Either the “victim” was the aggressor and initiator or their sexual union could be described as a mutual coming together, more spontaneous than calculating for both partners.
