You hear it everywhere– people saying that sex is fine between consenting individuals, that it’s something that just happens and is expected at colleges. Movies are made (not even “adult” ones) that glorify the college party lifestyle which includes sex, drugs and rock-n-roll.
The problem is that this lifestyle is destructive, and can lead to problems that will last with you for a whole lifetime. The woman might become pregnant– do you abort and have the lifetime baggage of ending a life? Do you raise the child and have the responsibility for another life while still young? Do you get married? child support? adoption?
Or, you end up like these two men, accused of having sex with an 11-year-old. It could have been up to ten men that physically assaulted this girl in an apartment in Fresno, California. She went to visit friends, and ended up getting sexually assaulted. You cannot tell me that an 11-year-old can consent to sex.
What I can tell you, though, is that it’s not complicated for a man to go from a party and sex lifestyle (glamorized by the popular culture) to end up raping a young girl multiple times– regardless of what they say about thinking that she was older.
They weren’t thinking at all. If they were thinking, they would have left this girl alone. If they were thinking, they would have never unzipped their pants (sorry for the crudeness– but you get my point). There was no reason for this action other than selfishness, lust, and lack of self control. But this is what we promote in this culture.
How many more young ladies or men have to be violated (physically, emotionally, visually) before we get the point and say “enough is enough”?
