My biggest fear is that eventually you will see me the way I see myself.

But the law is an odd thing. For instance, one country in Europe has a law that requires all its bakers to sell bread at the exact same price. A certain island has a law that forbids anyone from removing its fruit. And a town not too far from where you live has a law that bars me from coming within five miles of its borders.

What’s next for Kaitlyn Hunt, the teen charged with a felony for a same-sex relationship with a classmate.
If this were a boy and girl, it would be no big deal.
In all fairness, I live in Florida, and that is not really true. Florida is absurdly tough across the board on statutory “rape” laws. In Florida we have two different ages of consent. The first is 16, but you can only consent to engage in sexual activity with other people between the ages of 16 and 24. The second age of consent is 18, when you are deem to have full consent to any age older then you. I’ve seen it happen numerous times were 16 or 17 year old boys were arrested for having a sexual relationship with a 15 year old girl and then had their lives ruined after being deemed a sex offender.
I’m not defending the state, just pointing out the facts. This is not aimed at her because she is a lesbian, it’s because Florida has a militant stand on statutory ”rape”, even if the couples are only a year apart.
I’m already sick of everyone saying this is only happening because it was a lesbian relationship.
It’s all coming from people who do not live in Florida and have no understanding of Florida’s statutory ”rape” laws and it’s enforcement. It doesn’t matter if it’s a straight relationship or a homosexual relationship. In Florida if you are 16 and older and even suggestively look at someone under 16 you run the risk of the cops throwing you to the ground, beating you senseless and then labeling you a sex offender for the rest of your life.
The injustice here is not that a lesbian girl was targeted. She only just happened to be a lesbian. The real injustice is that a law that is intended to prevent 35 year old’s from preying on 15 year old kids is being enforced with the same severity on teenage “offenders” who are only one, two, or three years apart in age. That is what people should be upset about. Not wrongfully assuming that this is a law that is targeting gays and lesbians. Because I can assure you that more 16, 17, and 18 year old boys are arrested under this law for their relationships with 14 and 15 year old girls then any one else.
Poor girl, either way. It was a consenting relationship.
