So it should be used precisely, but liberals of course, will redefine even this word to suit their purposes. Take the recent case of an 18 year old starting a sexual relationship with a 14 year old. A 14 year old cannot technically consent. One adult starting a sexual relationship with a 14 year old is wrong, and there are penalties for this.
But in this case, the ACLU thinks otherwise:
The Florida ACLU has spoken out on her behalf, saying this is a harmless, consensual relationship.
There go the liberals, effectively seeking to lower the age of consent to 14, or ignoring the fact that 14 year olds cannot give consent. The ACLU makes out this is all "harmless" and moral (because there is consent).
Well no - if you read different news reports of adults seducing 14 year olds, they are normally described as "sexual abuse".
Part of the reason the ACLU are involved with this story is that the 18 year old is a lesbian, and has seduced a 14 year old girl. This supposedly gives the ACLU the chance to play the homophobic card, and argue further that consent is different for those that demand equal rights but not equal responsibilities.
Another part of the problem that will offend Liberals is that the parents are involved - how dear they take an active part in their daughter's upbringing and expect to keep minors away from adults who seek a sexual relationship. Conservatives should note both "threats" to Conservative morality, and it is an ongoing fight to preserve even these standards from the immoral.
Some reports refer to the 18 year old as a kid, or a teenager themselves. Not a "real" adult. That logic allows a much greater degree of flexibility in deciding the morality, and it is deliberately twisting the words to suit their preferences. So is an 18 year old an adult, or are they not? So typical that such Liberals expect adult privileges without adult responsibilities.
There are reasons to be merciful, but more importantly, the lesson should be clear to all adults of any sexuality - learn the meaning of legal consent, and stop sexually abusing kids. That's the minimum standard for a Liberal, so stop lowering the standards further.
Kaitlyn Hunt, an 18-year-old Florida student, is getting lots of sympathy after being criminally charged over her sexual relationship with her 14-year-old girlfriend. Hunt and the younger girl were basketball teammates. Hunt’s parents say the girl’s parents went to the police, “because they blamed Kaitlyn for their child's homosexuality,” as CBS put it. Hunt’s family put up a Facebook page called “Free Kate,” with links to T-shirts, bracelets, and a petition. More than 45,000 people have signed it. The Florida ACLU has spoken out on her behalf, saying this is a harmless, consensual relationship.
