ARGH! You know what? I'm full of hate. Apparently some asshats think an 11 year old is somehow grown enough to decide hey, I want to suck off twenty guys! Nothing drives me battier than the idea that a pair of breasts is consent. At that age, even if you aren't playing with Barbies like I was, heck, even if you're buying your Twinkies by dancing at the club, you are pretty easily coerced. Heck, even adult women have been coerced into doing things they didn't want to by fear that guys won't like them or that if they don't do that, they are a bad defective person. And we're expecting an 11 year old to speak up against 20 older guys, including a 40 year old?

That's why I don't believe in the old 'oh, she did it, so that means that she loved it and it was ok" system of consent, because they could have been telling that kid anything. Not to mention our whole society encourages women to judge their worth on who wants to fuck them or how much approval they get from others. So we have a kid here fighting that tide, probably not enough parental support, with god knows what going around in her brain, and what do we get? Oh, she's old enough to consent!

Another thing that drives me nuts is how when a white 20 year old does something dumb, he's a boy, but if a black girl gets in trouble, she's a grown ass woman. You know, my cousin is 10 and just got breasts. She doesn't know her ass from a hole in the ground. Her parents don't trust her enough to give her a real cell phone. But if you listen to the assholes on the internet, apparently, she's growner than I am. Fuck that.
