Rape as a "romantic fling"--Our friends at the Everett Herald can't tell the difference

Once again, our misandrist friends at the Everett Herald don't get it.

I offered the below email to their "reader representative" and to their news editor as a "teachable moment" to help them understand that rape of a child, who cannot consent, is not a "romantic fling".

I will amend this with thier answer, if they should chose to dignify my rant with one.

UPDATE: They did, see end.

When is the friggin' press gonna get it?

This fully adult woman RAPES a 14 year old boy child, who cannot consent to such activity, and you call it a "romantic fling".

This kid is going to have major and severe problems as he grows up. I submit Vili Filau as exhibit "A". Two kids, 22 years old, no job, and no HS diploma.

If an adult MAN were to molest and rape a 14 year old GIRL, would the ubiquitous "Herald Staff" call it a romantic fling?

I think not.

How about using this as a teachable moment, and get your staff to understand that rape of a child is rape, no matter what the gender?

Of course, the (female) deputy prosecutor who works for a (female) elected prosecutor suggested 14 months in jail.


Oh, yeah, I forgot, that is the same prosecutor who called DV perps MEN, and referred to deadbeat DADS in a public meeting, until I called her out on it.

Have a cheery day. I will, once the rage subsides over our press continuing to excuse FEMALE sexual predators by using terms like "romantic fling".

Robert Frank, editor of the Herald replies:

You're right. It's not romance; with a 14 year old, it's puppy love at best. But in this state it always is a crime, whether the victim is a boy or a girl, or whether the molester is a woman or a man. Such wording is wrong and unacceptable.

Geezer comments:

Men? Sheesh, Pogo is right, we have met the enemy, and sometimes it is us. Hope Robert takes a big can of "whoop ass" with him when he talks to the gents.

I'm a bit surprised they haven't found a way to blame the boy. That seems to be the next step. Just like that 14yo babysitter that molested the 8-year-old boy. Even the boys own mother thinks it was partly his own fault. He liked it too much, she said, he showed too much interest. It is always the fault of some male. Women can't be held accountable. I mean, they CAN'T, not shouldn't, but can't. They are incapable, too stupid, like dogs. But even dogs are put down (held accountable) when they bite someone. So I guess that would mean that even dogs are better than women. Hmm...I could speculate about this all day. Are dogs better than women? They are certainly more loyal. They are smart enough to know who feeds them and not bite then. I think I'm onto something. How many ways are dogs better than women?

Hey Geezer - Just saw the comment you posted on SeattleRant.

No, I don't know how to contact Roger except through HA. There's some real nutcases over there, so you gotta be careful.

He has indicated that he's an attorney who worked in the family court system daily before his recent retirement. Not sure exactly what his role was.

The regulars over there (the libs at least) go out drinking every Tuesday at something called "Drinking Liberally" up near UW someplace. If Goldy's there, you might be able to give him your e-mail address to pass on to Roger with a request that Roger contact you.
