Meanwhile we have a serious human trafficking problem that is caused by males and rape culture is perfectly normal.Don't worry though if you dare to speak out you can guarantee some pathetic dude boy will label you a "prude" and accuse you of having sexual fantasies.The only ones who want to normalize pedophilia, as far as I know, are the NAMBLA idiots (may they rot).If you make a wack assertion, you gotta back it up or go home. He was hired for, and applied his knowledge to, this case, and tho the jury liked, generally believed, and was admittedly educated by him, their fear of fantasy was too exploited by the overreaching prosecutor ...Your attempt to heighten outrage by switching the genders (real and imagined) actually weakens the outrage, in my decades of life experience.I mean, seriously, as a former teenage boy myself, I would’ve totally been into a MILF-type sexting me even if she thought I was really just a fantasy role-playing adult.Jones has broken the law against adults discussing sex with minors over the internet.

Because you never know what sexual fantasy the government will criminalize next.
In the end, fear was primarily what the 12 jurors relied upon. I'm afraid this is an example of what happens when police can no longer fill their days raiding homes looking for marijuana. Without criminals, they wouldn't exist, so when a state eliminates one crime, turning criminals into law abiding citizens, police will respond by turning law abiding citizens into criminals.
