Comment of the Day: Don't Blame the Underage Girl for Getting Creepy Sext Messages
We have some great commenters here on Hair Balls, and it's time we paid some damn attention to them.
So we'll be highlighting a Comment of the Day each morning, from the previous day's work. Maybe two comments, even.
This will all be determined by a highly rigorous scientific formula involving wit, clarity and whatever else we feel like at the moment.
We printed the sexual texts a 20-year-old sent a 14-year-old girl he knew from church. One commenter went to the "girl was asking for it" card (She shouldn't have been such a horndog") and was slammed down.
Wow! Don't u dare place ANY of the blame on that young girl! Part of going through puberty and maturing from a child into a young woman is hoping a "boy" will notice, want and one day love you. Those are every YOUNG girls fantasies! He preyed on that! Showing her ANY kind of itimate attention and playing into those fantasies are his actions! That's why she is too young by LAW to make those kinds if decisions!
